The Sad State of My (Mental) Health

The weekend isn't helping! And losing an entire hour somewhere in the ether is sure to deal yet another blow to my psyche.

Errands are crammed into weekends when all I really want to do is veg out, knit, read, and watch the shows we taped because I can't stay awake past 9 during the week and still be up at 5 to be at work by 6:30.

We grabbed lunch "out" (at Arby's, big whoop) and I chipped my front tooth (yet again) on a BLT (the bread wasn't even toasted). So I'll be making an appointment with Dr. deSade on Monday.

After lunch, we hit BJ's (like Costco) and it was so crowded with brain-dead people, I wanted to stand in the middle of the aisle and scream! ::ahem:: Of course, if I did that I might get a nice long rest, but likely, they'd take away my pointy sticks.

Mental Health: Some reasons to belive I am fading fast:

I keep seeing amusing things that I'd like to comment on here, but by the time I get here I have completely forgotten what they were.

I have noticed that I can no longer type the word "that" without concentrating hard. It comes out "taht" otherwise. I don't believe that I am mis-typing any other common word on a regular basis.

For a while, I was smelling burnt toast all the time. A word to the wise: don't Google symptoms unless you want to know. I didn't want to know. It's gone away now that I know. ::whew::

The latest Dulaan sweater (the one that I was going to make into a clown sweater (just random blotches and stripes of many colors) has morphed into something slightly more traditional. (Sorry, Rabbitch.)

I have no doubt that it will be pretty, but clearly, I need some fair isle coaching.

Clown sweater would have been cute, too. I may still make one, just not right now. (See note above re: mental health. I have enough random stuff going on right now without adding to it!)

Movie Reviews: We rented 2 movies over the weekend. Flyboys was on Friday. Based on real people, real events, it was somewhat unbelievable, and yet, the most potentially fictitious part turned out to be true. Some action, some chick stuff. Decent date movie.

Then there was Running with Scissors on Saturday. Another "based on real events" movie (actually, based on the real-life life and journal of the main character). Augusten Burroughs was interviewed a bit ago on Fresh Air. The interview was recently replayed. This was a movie that I have wanted to see. The video store has it labeled "comedy." That label should be "black comedy." It is dark and troubling and very real. That Burroughs managed to survive is a story unto itself. I enjoyed it.


Goodness girl! I sure feel for ya.

The last few days I've felt like I was trying to swim my way through a serious fog. And I don't even have a cold. lol
Oh, I do like those colors, I do, I do. So cheerful and pretty.

If you haven't already seen it, United 93 is another movie based on real-life events, in this case the 9/11 flight that crashed in PA. Very, very well done. The flight controllers all played themselves, which added a lot of realism for me.
