The Red, White and Blue

This morning on my way to work, I was driving behind a Mercury Sable with a bumper sticker that said, Proud to be an American. To further drive the point home, their license plate also said, Proud to be an American.

Is that really necessary? Although I understand the need to repeat. repeat. repeat.

I work at a place that is all about repetition. The company motto seems to be if it's worth saying, it's worth saying 3 times.

Once more with feeling, I'm proud to be an American. I just don't put the sticker on my car to share that view with the world.

It's America though so decorate your car any way you see fit.

Creativity Zero

Tah duh!

I've had no creative energy today. None, zero, zip, nada. Luckily, nothing's due today and this stuff comes in waves. I'm hoping to catch a whole boat load on my way home tonight, or maybe the creative fairies will battle for space under my pillow,next to a year's worth of old teeth.

If you're paying close attention, don't be alarmed. I don't really leave old teeth under my pillow anymore.

In fact, any type of magical entity standing over my bed in the middle of the night, it would scare the shit out of me. So keep your 50 cents, you floaty bastards.

Ah well. I blame it on Monday and my emotional up-heavel which is the equivilant of puking for a few hours. But as Scarlett O'Hara said, "Tommorow is another Day."

Don't Stop

I still can't prevent forrest fires.

I'm working hard to wear my fireman's hat and protective gear.

I've had a crappy weekend, and I can feel myself sliding toward depression, but I'm trying not to let that happen.

Try to focus on good things, like getting a new start someplace new, saving money, continue going to the gym, I've been eating less choclate, no fast food.

Other things will fall into place. Some things I can control, and other things well, I press on. And stop picking up the phone. And I hate to say it, but I'm going to have to stop beleiving.

I don't beleive in Santa Claus, and I'm starting to lose faith in the modern equivilant.

GYM Dandy

I did it again. I woke up and went to the gym. It was early, it was hard, and I'm tired. But I also know if I would've kept sleeping, I'd have even less energy now.

The gym is good for me. This I know. So, I press on.

In other news, actually there isn't a lot of other news right now. Amy called me last night from Denver. She is settling in, and things are going well.

As for me, well, I'm not depressed, but I don't feel totally happy now either. I'm working on changing that.

And yeah, that's vague, but I don't care. It makes sense to me. :)

The State of My Union

Party of One. Lover of many.

I woke up feeling surly today. I don't know why. That just happens sometimes.
