Someone needs to lighten up...
That would be me. In the words of the so-full-of-himself-he-might-implode-taking-the-universe-with-him-into-a-black-hold-of-monotony reality tv hairdresser Jonathan, "I am SO over myself."

If I still had a shrink I would feel sorry for her for having to listen to my crap. I can't even stand the sound of my own voice in my head. Everything I do annoys me, from talking out loud to the cat (yes, I thought it was cute at one time) to that weird thing I do with my tongue and my teeth when I get nervous (I thought that was cute once too). I hate my clothes, my hair, my height, my feet, my car, my fingernails, my arrogance, my smugness, the way I walk, and my taste in TV. I irritate the hell out of myself.

Spending too much time alone? Probably. That would explain the talking to the cat thing (because it's two more cats and a floral bathrobe away from crazy old woman). And I think I like myself a lot more when I have to defend myself to others. When I don't have to stand up for myself, I start to wonder who I was fighting for in the first place. Bottom line: Apparently I need criticism to survive, otherwise I start looking for another host body to occupy.

"Interesting. No wait, the other thing: tedious."

  1. yeah. i don't like you, i'll tell ya that much. now: defend yourself.

  2. wait. that's not really a criticism. so how 'bout this: why an SWR? why not a twin or a super? or a nashville 400? or even an orange, for that much? but an SWR?

  3. I have to admit that I was taken with the fact that it's called "super redhead." But since it is a bass amp and I don't play bass, the one I own is a Fender. I wish it was prettier. Or that it was called "Awesome Redhead" or "Killer Queen" or something like that.

    Defending my brand choice!

  4. Why so glum? Have you been listening to The Cure again?

    Strange as angels them boys be.

  5. Maybe that was it! I was actually listening to a bleak 80s mix CD over the weekend (dancing in the deepest ocean with black eyeliner on...).
