Where'd I Put That?

You know what? I’m at work right now. I probably have some semblance of work I could be doing. But I’m not going to. Want to know why? Besides the fact that the work is really just some make work project my boss gave me because he sees me sitting here at my desk, Facebooking and reading Pajiba on the fucking spy-cam he had installed over my desk (it’s for “security”)? I haven’t posted in a month of Sundays and I miss you yahoos and I know that if I don’t pay y’all at least a wee bit of attention you may just up and hop the fence. Which, I can’t have. I’ve grown accustomed to your affections, I’m afraid.

I’ll explain my absence. I have developed an alarming case of apathy. Yup, my give a fuck is fubar’d. Seems no one knows how to fix it either. Could be that I hold the secret to refilling my well of interest. Could be. I can’t really be bothered to go looking right now. It’s a vicious circle, folks. - No. Not that kind of circle. Pig! – I suspect the time of year has a great deal to do with it. Truth be told, I’ve known for awhile that my so called seasonal depression is not really seasonal. I’ma do a little Scarlet and deal with that tomorrow.

The good news is that I have read 4 books (none of which I have written a review for. D’oh!). Three of which are young adult novels. You see, I have a thirteen year old daughter, so there are piles of this shit lying around my house. And ‘shit’ is a generous description, but you’ll understand when I get around to writing the reviews. I feel compelled to read them because I should know what my daughter is reading. It’s trash, seriously. There are good books out there, I know there are, why do we keep ending up with crap? I shouldn’t complain too much though because while she was happy to read Twilight, she was more excited to begin reading the Sword of Truth series and several Stephen King novels. And you naysayers can keep your opinions about the Sword of Truth series and Stephen King to yourself, ya hear? But feel free to lay into Twilight.

More bad news? I have completely fallin’ off the weight loss wagon. Dani and I went to the local grocery store to supplement our lunches today. With what? Barbecue chips and brownies... ...with chocolate chips. It may or may not have anything to do with PMS. It has absolutely nothing to do with helping me achieve my weight loss goal. I can’t tell you exactly what that is, ‘cause I don’t want to ruin your image of me. You know the image where I’ve got a body like Brittany Spears before she flipped her bicky and showed the world her cooter. That being said, it wasn’t the trip to the grocery store that was my diets demise. No, the defeat of the mighty diet can be traced back to Christmas. I took a vacation from my attempt at a healthier lifestyle. Because, really, what fun is Christmas when you’re counting the calories in your rum and eggnog and turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy? So, yeah, I’m just hoping I haven’t exhausted the supply of will power I had.

Hmmm. More good news? I want to end on a high note like George Costanza. It has been gorgeous weather wise in my corner of the world. Gorgeous! Yesterday it was plus 15 (59, my Ameri-friends) in the sun. Here in Canadialand during the winter months that is something to sing Hallelujah about. Today, it is plus 5 (41!), the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky. Loverly. Sadly, it’s supposed to start raining tomorrow, turn to snow tomorrow night and then snow off and on until Wednesday. Oh! That high note? Lemme see... ... all the snow is good for skiing. Maybe I should start skiing? You have no idea how amusing that thought is!


  1. Yay, Eyvi's back! Whoot! As for the spycam (if that part is true/a problem), you can always email post your blog from Outlook. Let me know if you want a tutorial.

    And depression is no laughing matter. It is a drinking matter. In light of that, I'm going to drink now and ponder some matters for you. I'll let you know what I figure out*.

    *Warning: X will probably figure out that your problems can be solved by drinking, much like his.

  2. "My give a fuck is fubar'd"? I really can't say as there is any better way to describe the blahs that have settle upon the world of late. But I giggled - none the less.

    Apathy hits me in short bursts between rage and despair (broken up by long sections of manic hilarity for good measure)... oh, but then you know this already so I am just posting to your readers through your comments ... classy, wha'?

    So ... I'm with X. I'll go home and drink on it and let you know when I have your life figured out ... chances are the prescription will be the same as X's ... so why not just join me, we'll call X and his lovely wife and then drink together? See ya at 5:30???

  3. Way to leave me out of your drinking party losers! And if you've read my blog, you know the universe is out to get me!! Apparently it's after you guys too so at least I'm in good company.

    I'm glad to see you posting Eyvi, and ranting about your idiot boss. Sorry you have a case of the blahs. It's the fucking month for it. Hopefully February pulls us all out. Valentines Day= mass quantities of chocolate. A good sugar rush should help, no?


  4. Yeah *does a little dance* Evyi's back, Evyi's back and apparently we are all having a piss up! Most excellent! I'm in! I think we have the FWB. the fucking winter blues/ is apparently an epidemic. Hey can we get a shot for that? Like the H1N1?

  5. AA, the only shot that works for that is Tequila...

  6. I am SO with you on the weight gain & apathy. I thought about posting something similar, but then realized that I just don't care enough to type it out. I'm hoping it's just a seasonal thing and will fix itself with a little sunlight. I hope it's the same for you.

    Good to see you, though!

  7. I tried the drinking and that didn't work. All of my apathy and depression comes flooding right back in as soon as I'm sober again. Bah! X, I am holding you directly responsible for raising my expectations. But a party...I think a party is just the answer! Everyone's invited! Even you, Spot! Wouldn't be the same without you.

    I hope it's a seasonal thing too, Lainey. I may try a tanning bed. I'll let you know how it works out!
