  1. Having to really force myself to find anything I'm grateful for today. I'm really down in the dumps. Worse than normal. My hilarious cats My daughter Very rusty but reliable old minivan
  2. I've been kicked in the teeth countless times because I dared to hope. All it got me was bitter disappointment. The universe and I function like that Peanuts comic where Lucy talks Charlie Brown into taking a kick at the football she's holding on the ground. Charlie reluctantly runs for it and at the last second, Lucy yanks the football, causing Charlie Brown to once again fall flat on his back. This happens over and over again. It's the perfect metaphor for my life.
  3. Yes. I had a big chunk of a rocker panel fall of the rusty old minivan today as I went plowing through the newly fallen snow. I heard it and thought, "WTF was that??" Got out and saw it behind me. Hahaha. Now my car is that much lighter. I'm confident of my own driving skills, but not those of other people. For whatever reason, almost everyone has become hyper-aggressive behind the wheel.
  4. My ultra-negative self image. I wish I could be confident.
  5. Only tumbleweeds in the chat now...though I do see brother @Tilted in there on rare occasions.
  6. I enjoy being "snowed in". But then the storm ends and the big clean up begins. That part really sucks. I used to play in the snow (skiing, sledding, plowing snow with a big front end loader, etc.) but now it is merely a monstrous drag.
  7. I'm wasting life by being here. Wish I could give it to someone who is more deserving.

    @samadhiSheol Once again, a home run, as we yanks like to say. Brilliant piece of writing. Same. The very same. I've never even talked back to my soon-to-be-former boss, no matter how much that fooker has abused me. I just don't have it in me. My coworkers think I'm a puss for not standing up to him. They are correct. I'm a cardboard cut-out of a man being blown around in random directions by the wind.

    @samadhiSheol Toots & the Maytals are another favorite of mine--as are The Specials. When it was first released, I listened to "Concrete Jungle" over and over again. I didn't want it to end.
  10. People really do suck. I'm sitting here thinking about how all of my problems have another person's behaviour or expectations as a root cause. I mean, I completely suck as well, but I'm constantly dealing with people's inflated egos, pig-headedness, stupidity, greed, and a myriad of other negative characteristics. I've been trying (and failing) to cope with it for decades. I'm utterly exhausted. I'm sick of it. I don't want anything more to do with people (beyond my daughter anyway). My goal right now is to wander off into the forest as far away from people as possible, lie down in the snow, drift off to sleep, and never wake up again.
  11. This is going to sound odd but one of my "favourite" parts of DF is your posts. I'm absolutely serious. You have an uncanny knack for describing a state of mind that I generally share with you...but I don't have the ability to put it all into words as you do. Almost any time I read a post of yours, I think, "Damn, I wish I could have written that." From one nihilistic misanthrope to another, thank you.
  12. Would if I could, my friend...would if I could. Of course you are worthy of redemption. As AdamRParr said elsewhere, you are a shining light on this decidedly bleak planet. Thank you for being here.
  13. Seconded. Being at home with my cats is a wonderful refuge from having to deal with sh!tty people all day long.
