  1. Went to work. Believe me, that was a huge accomplishment given how I felt this morning. I got through two meetings without getting yelled at too much.
  2. I wish I was in better shape. I realize that is completely up to me. But I'm having a lot of trouble working up the motivation to actually resume a workout routine.
  3. I think @sober4lifeis onto something. I've actually gone into "wacky psychedelic mode" when someone has pushed me past the point of no return. I'm not mean or threatening in any way; I just act bizarre and "other worldly". Generally works like charm and people back off---unless they are every bit as weird as me. When that happens, I might be making a new friend!
  4. I gotta look that up, if only because of the group's name! I'm currently listening to Stand at Your Window ~ Jim Reeves (1961)
  5. This pretty much sums up my "take" on Christianity. The Beatitudes are attributed to Jesus (in the book of Matthew). This is one aspect of the "religion" that stuck with me, even when I thought I had fallen into pure atheism (the other aspect that stuck with me was most of Ecclesiastes. Go figure! :) ). THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God. Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
  6. I'm in zombie mode today. I experience this all too often. If I don't sleep well, the next day is misery. I can't think my way out of a paper bag and I feel vaguely ill. My thoughts move around sluggishly, as if they are getting dragged through thick syrup. I can tell you right now that my boss will be all over my ass(ets) today as well. It's inevitable. The crappier I feel, the more grief the guy gives me. He is the consummate uber-positive "normie" who simply cannot understand why anyone might feel down. His insufferably fake sh!t-eating grin disgusts me. I really should ditch work on days when I feel like this. Unfortunately, they are too frequent and I'd soon find myself getting the bum's rush out the back door of the office. So I'll slog through as I've done countless times before.
  7. You often manage to capture my jumbled thoughts and nail them down onto "paper". My ADD or whatever the hell it is doesn't let me craft sentences like what I quoted from you above. I love writing, but it's often pure agony for me. But! I, too, held that "indomitable spirit" at one time. I remember the constant drive to jump out of bed and do something. There were endless possibilities within my grasp. Maybe it was the "optimism of youth", or maybe the universe hadn't rounded off my edges yet. I dunno. But I miss it.
  8. And then "somebody" keeps increasing the speed of the hamster wheel so it's harder to keep up. At the same time, the food pellet ration goes down and there's less time to poop. What a wonderful system.
  9. Two great songs for y'all, both from the same artist: Skip a Rope Row, Row, Row. Both big hits by Henson Cargill in 1968 Sadly, nothing has changed.

    Name of the Rose

    Great blog entry. I am trying desperately to find meaning and *gasp* pleasure in my everyday existence. I know I am stuck in my current mode until I snuff it. I need to learn how to continue functioning in the limited "life" I have been allowed.
  11. Yikes, sorry about that delay! I've been fearful throughout my life when it comes to decisions at work or in "normal" everyday life. But I'll do crazy daredevil stuff however. I know the fear stems from lacking confidence. The daredevil part is probably my self-destructive tendencies.
  12. Sank like a stone over the weekend. Couldn't get past my utter stupidity that caused the failed relationship with my long lost girlfriend. Brooded upon it for hours and hours.
  13. Ditto. It's cloudy and cool today so I'm "happy" about the weather.
