Wow, I'm special

I got spam, fresh from Ron Popeil. If anyone in the world is entitled to send spam, it outta be the man who brought us "it slices, it dices!"


Today, I had a touch of Marvin. You know, the robot in Hitchhiker's Guide?

I'm going through a Deb-is-a-horrible-person-who-is-the-most-selfish-individual-in-the-world phase, which tends to mostly present itself by when I notice feeling put upon about doing grocery shopping, etc. (I tend to feel the whole weight of the world of me, the only person who ever does anything, and what has anyone done for me lately? Kind of nonsense. Yes, I recognize it as nonsense. No, at 12 today, I was miserable and could not simply dismiss the feeling. I HATE emotions.)

Saturday, I had a longish-day of chess tournament. Flar pampered me ALL WEEKEND. He made dinner for the boys Saturday night, and then he brought me breakfast AND lunch in bed on Sunday, and made dinner, too. I spent all day Sunday finishing Kushiel's Avatar.

Yesterday was a holiday, so I got to sleep in and took it easy much of the day.

I worked last night, and put together the grocery list for today. I spent an hour figuring out all the ingredients for a week on this diet, and still had to finish it up this morning. I'm trying not to be overwhelmed by the amount of fresh cooking involved in the diet. And the produce as almost half of the total shopping trip this afternoon. The boys carried the groceries in, and Flar helped Tigger find places for all of it, while I sat down to read email/LJ.

I'm caught up around the house, and online (except for the comics).

But I got swallowed by the Marvin cloud today.

I'm not letting it get to me. I actually side-stepped "how are you feeling" to ask Wolf about his day. And got a nifty recounting about his phone interview today. I think that was a good call.

So, feeling dirty rotten selfish today. But mostly being grown up about it. I don't think I've even yelled at anyone.

    I’m living in utter luxury. I’m working at the federal building in Denver, and I found a nifty AirBNB (under the lodging per diem) just a block away.…

    While sleeping under a ceiling fan may not cause death, it can contribute to a dry air morning sore throat. I put up with the sore throat because…

    Failure comes only to one unwilling to adapt and keep looking forward. My marriage ended last year. I’m not a failure at relationships; I’m now…
