Last week was really something. The Pope died, Mitch Hedberg died, Johnnie Cochran died, and Terri Schiavo died. What's with all this dying? Mother Nature doing a little spring cleaning?
Dying; it sucks.
In a weird and slightly unrelated way that reminds me of my last therapist; who I am no longer seeing. She was a very nice lady, and I can't say she didn't help at times. Yet we were so very different that I felt it negatively affected our sessions. When it came to issues of dying, marriage, having children, etc. we did not see eye to eye. Why would that matter, you ask? Apparently it did; she appeared to think that my eclectic views on death and the afterlife, my antipathy for marriage and lack of desire to procreate were the root causes of all my mental problems.
She was older and very traditional and "traditional" is about as far as you can get from describing my personality and views on life. Eventually I just stopped going. I don't need anyone trying to convince me that I should get married to be happier - I haven't noticed that working for a lot people.
Did anyone else have a damn hard time waking up this morning? Wow. I bet a study would find that 85%-95% of all people are late coming in to work the Monday after Daylight Savings Time has fucked time all up to hell and back. I know I was.
In closing this non-sensical Monday ramble, I'd like to suggest a book for you to read. I very, very highly recommend The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I can't tell you the last time I enjoyed a book so much or got into the characters so deeply. I laughed, I cried - I was moody for two days after finishing it, then I picked it right back up and started reading it again. Try it - I promise you won't be disappointed. Many thanks to my sis for insisting we all read it after she fell in love with it as well; this is now on my list of all-time favorite books.
