[insert witty title here]

I had a busy weekend, socializing every night. I want to curl up and read for about three days to right that wrong. ;) I had some friends over for dinner on Saturday where I made oxtails again (seriously. The tweaks I made - and added to the posted recipe - made this SO DAMN GOOD.) We went out for dinner last night with another group of friends, then came back to watch one of the best episodes of the Walking Dead season yet.

THE RECAP. Dude. I love how strong the women are (minus Andrea). And Daryl, as always, makes me happy. Come talk shop over at HDJM.

In other news, I am eating leftovers of deliciousness and skipping my workout today. I worked in the garden cleaning it out on Sat and Sunday, so I can take a day off.

Someone come push everyone out of my house so I can take a nap, please.

EDITED TO ADD FOR THE TEEN WOLF FANDOM: Holy smokes, let me explain Adderall. You take it because your brain is hyperactive (in a nutshell) and yes, if a non ADHD person took it, it's like taking coke. For someone with ADHD, it's like a brain chill. YOU ARE THE OPPOSITE OF HYPERACTIVE. That's...that's the freaking POINT. Also, coffee acts like Adderall, so it slows down a person's mind enough for them to think. SUGAR would make them hyper (as do most dyes) but not COFFEE.

(And I keep coming across per SAY instead of per se. And A-huh for Uh-huh. A-huh? Every time I see that I say letter A, huh.) /random observances

Wellll, one thing about Adderall/Ritalin and ADD/ADHD - which I am sure you know well by now - is that when you are undiagnosed and unmedicated, you are often depressed and listless and quiet and kind of fucking angry all the time because your brain is plotting against you 90% of the time. So when you finally ARE medicated, you can SEEM hyperactive because for the first time in your life you are functioning like the rest of the world and not like A Crazy Person. It's like this huge fucking weight has been lifted off your shoulders and you can finally just BE.

So yeah, to outsiders it can seem like the meds make you more hyper but really it's just making you more able to keep up with your own mind. IT'S NOT OUR FAULT OUR MINDS ARE FASTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE'S.

Oh, isn't that true about finally having that fog lifted? HEY CONNECTED THOUGHTS, HOW ARE YOU NICE TO MEET YOU. (Same thing with anti-depression meds.)

I make my lists for what to do for the day right after drinking my (vile! horrific! necessary! I love it so!) coffee because that's when my brain is firing as it should. THEN I START JUGGLING FORTY-SEVEN MENTAL BALLS.


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.
