Well, I'm still in a vile mood, and I'm still blue and the dishes are still not washed - but thank you all for your nice thoughts and kind wishes. I will snap out of it; I always do - it's just a little grisly in the trenches sometimes.
In the meantime, I would like to note that I played Bookworm for something like three hours tonight (I am the Queen of Wasting Time. Also the Queen of Bookworm) and I got well over 150,000 points and the rank of Grand Dictionarian. I am good at something, anyway. In another piece of good news a friend of mine sent me Neutral Milk Hotel In The Aeroplane Over the Sea and I think it is perhaps one of the most brilliant things ever. Among it's other great qualities, it drove A, who is not into slightly discordant odd music, completely nuts. Here are some mp3s for your delectation.
Other than that, nothing to report. I started a new hat. I went to the library and the laundromat and I got all sad and angry and bent out of shape on the internets, so I think I will be taking a bit of a break from some of my regular hangouts for a while. I need to work on my real life and step the hell away from this screen once in a while. Easier, I know, said than done. But worth, I think, a try.
