Bah.

Grumpy grumpy grumpy today. The Mr. left for a week long trip, starting off a 10 month-long project of weekly travel. He also woke me by giving me a rundown of what was wrong with everyone [the boy woke up late, there wasn't any bread - I went to the store yesterday, called and ASKED IF I NEEDED TO GET ANYTHING, the dogs puked on the rug, gah], and I had 10 minutes to solve everything before running The Boy to early morning practice. Before coffee. Which, notice that none was made by the person who had been up for an hour. Now, I ask you! Come on, dude. *head desk*

Then, I had a doctor's appointment where - you know what? It set me off so much that I'm not even going to repeat it. Suffice it to say that she said something jerky, I called her on it, and hopefully that learned her up some. I don't need to infect anyone else with that grumpiness.

My pants are tight, I'm on my monthlies, my floor needs mopping, my hair is frizzed, and I'm completely surrounded by a lack of chocolate. :( I feel like stomping around the house and making angry faces. I think I'll do that until the dogs start sniffing their butts and giving me looks, which should chasten me and put me to rights. Or my cat will turn her back to me until I get with the program. It's hard to stay mad for long when you have a fluffy cat that is trying to teach you a lesson.

....

It is sunny and beautiful outside, maybe I should go out there with a book and just forget getting anything else done today... If anyone could find a way to airlift some brownies my way (or nachos, I'm not picky) that would be super fantastic.

this post brought to you by my goal to do NaNo this year and realizing that my last year's project was my book and I've stopped submitting it and I hate trying to write because I suck at it. GAAAAAAAAAH.

I've had a day like that recently, but I am trying to give up on sweets since it's wintertime and I eat a lot during the winter.
What I do to relax when I am annoyed or grumpy is sit down with a good book while listening to some classical music, hence it's not for everyone but you can do both since there's no singing and it blocks out all of the annoyances around.

I laid down for a minute and woke up two hours later, so I think that has helped. I could go for a sunshine nap, too, hmm...

oh wow...that was so deja vu for me. You just recounted my entire week last week.

PS: you can so write so suck it up sister and get back to it.

Love, Mel.

I just took a Colbert nap, that worked. (Meaning: I put on the Colbert report and slept with his voice in my head.) DID THE TRICK. Lol.

And hahaha, I WILL SUCK IT UP. Speaking of sucking, PRE-ORDERED THE SEQUEL. :D

Mmmm, coffee. I think I need more of that. With some hazelnut syrup in it. And a dollop of cream. And sprinkles.

Some days, this is the best strategy. I always feel better after a day like that.

Why have you stopped submitting your book?

I napped in my window - a little cat therapy. :)

I stopped because I kept getting rejections, then got a suggestion from someone who writes for This American Life to possibly overhaul it and submit it to NPR and got weary and defeated.

I've been lobbying for fwoomp tubes (the tubes at the bank?) so that we can fwoomp things to people in need. Things like fudge, puppies, and thermoses of soup. HOW ABOUT IT, SCIENCE?

I did sleep in the sun! Curled up at my window, but I'm going back out there because sunshine is good for what ails you, I believe, yes!

I see. It's one of those days.

I will hold your hand as my writer's block is so bad I can barely write a lj entry.

It's TOTALLY one of those days.

I have something beyond writer's block that is more like when you have two "north" magnets. THat's what writing is doing to me. It's pushing me to another room. How can I help you with your block? Get you to write some Eric Northman goes jeans shopping with Pam at Shreveport's Big&Tall as Pam simultaneously checks out his ass and comments on how ant-like the humans are? And then orders him some Deisel jeans from her iPhone?

LETS HUG IT OUT GRUMPY PERSON!

I make you a cup of internet tea and internet stroke your hair (armpit).

You are one of my favourite writers and I have fantastic taste so stick that in your pipe and smoke it (it's crack).

I purposely let my internet armpit hair get long just so you could pet it. Also, it blocks the bad USB port.

YAY CRACK IN MY PIPE! I think I need a crack story to write to break me out of my funk. Think of ideas and I'll write something just for you. Isn't that the most awkward gift? TELL ME HOW TO MAKE YOU PAY ATTENTION TO ME. LOL.

{{hugs}} I went through that mood last week. My Hubby ducks and covers and prays that it will blow over. Meanwhile I want to be the chick from the movie Hide. Rent it, I think you might like it.

I'm trying to get a handle on my mood so I don't let it take over. Coffee, kids outside, telling myself the house can stay dirty for one more day... It's kinda sorta working.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
