Flipflops in the Rain


SADness and lethargy

i could go on and on linking to previous posts about how much i hate the fall/winter, bad weather and overall mood-swinginess i suffer from four to six months out of the year, but i won’t. (well, that’s a lie. i spent about five minutes doing it.)

for four to six months out of the year, i ache. i cough. i whine. i sleep. repeat.

i eat. i laze. i bitch. i sleep. repeat.

i lack creativity. i lack motivation. i lack hope.

FOR FOUR TO SIX MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR. that’s pathetic. and unacceptable. and i’m ready to turn it around.

but i can’t figure out how. (see above.)

i know that exercise leads to energy — but i can only muster the energy to work out one to two times a week. (the second workout usually consist of lazy-girl’s yoga, which means i spend 10 minutes stretching and rolling around on the floor while my cat stares at me in confusion.)

i know waking up first thing in the morning and ignoring the snooze button increases this much-needed energy, but gawd! that extra 20 minutes of sleep feels sooo good and my bed is sooo toasty.

i know caffeine ultimately depletes my body’s power, but i can’t function like a normal human without it.

i know a lot of things about this disease they call SAD, but i don’t know where to start the recovery process. if someone has some tips, i sure could use them.

also, i lack so much creativity that i just used thesaurus.com far too many times.



pro: i’m back

con: i’m still on vacation mode.

my brain’s kind of fuzzy and i’m still on pacific time. i’m also picturing a beer in my hands instead of a computer but that’s beside the point.

someone, motivate me.

how do i get back in the groove of every day life? do i just nut up and go to the gym? or do i milk this lazy-lethargic-and-jetlagged feeling for another week? i *do* have a lot of tv to catch up on.

on another note, i saw a chihuahua with greyhound legs the other day. it was super disturbing and it looked like this*:grey

creepy huh? its legs were like twigs just begging to be snapped in half.

*this image isn’t exactly literal. it was also wearing a red hoodie.



i have more than three toes, but i’m definitely a sloth.

i showered today. and then i promptly put on the same sweats i’ve been wearing for three days and settled onto the couch for a hard day of work and inauguration watching.

while many of my friends and co-workers risked their lives to metro into the city for the event, i selected to stay in. by now, you’ve prolly figured out that i no likey the bitter cold.

however, i really hate working from home.

i know, “boo hoo hoo, i can work anywhere that has an internet connection; woe is me, i can stay in my jammies all day” — but seriously. i feel like a sloth. when i shut down my computer at 5, all i want to do is crawl back into bed and sleep until morning. when i finally pull myself off the couch to eat, i grab something carby and disgusting. and the working out i was bragging about last week? yeah… no. haven’t done it since. the fact that i bathed this morning (granted, it was maybe 33 seconds long) is pretty amazing.

i’m actually thoroughly looking forward to going back into the office tomorrow.

i’m even more looking forward to NOT going into the office on Thursday and flying to denver to see lyd and conebone for a long, much-needed weekend* away.

*not that my weekends here have been bad lately — just really busy. having an awesome surprise guest, meeting up with an awesome not-surprise guest, helping DR move, eating lots of pizza, battling the tourists to get to the bloggerational ball in adam’s morgan where i met many fabulous d.c. bloggers who know how to drink and dance** — i’m ready for a relaxing weekend.

**sorry guys, there’s no way i can link to everyone. i spent the better half of yesterday updating my google reader to include everyone i met — there’s no way i could add links to this post without forgetting someone. i’d rather people didn’t find out what a jerk i am just yet… it was fantastic to meet such truly funny and fun people. Thanks for a great time!

… when did they revamp WordPress?

My poor neglected blog.



we all have our demons.

thinking before i act.
bottling up my anger.
sticking my foot in my mouth.
acting stubborn.
acting lazy.
acting passive aggressive.
needing to win.
wanting what i can’t have.
biting my nails.
getting destructively bored.
never making up my mind.
always changing my mind.
forgetting to write.
remembering the little stuff.
holding a grudge.
crying too much.
drinking too much.
eating too much.
exercising too little.
not trusting enough.
trusting too much.
thinking too much.



laziness.

you might remember a little project i started participating in a few months back. No, the self-proclaimed blogging god’s bitter criticism of the project didn’t stop me from writing. instead, I stopped at number 67, partially out of respect for a family friend and partially from the lack of motivation i have when it comes to follow-through. (Methinks laziness is perhaps my biggest character flaw — although this topic is not up for debate.)

I think I’m gonna start again. I can’t promise it’ll be an everyday thing like I originally planned. But I can promise I’ll at least (pretend to) try and write every day.

So without further ado… see my next post.

sleep till noon thirty. throw on sweats. lie in bed all day. cuddle with the fluffball. catch up on my shows. possibly eat. possibly nap. possibly clean. ignore my cell phone. ignore time.

i’m glad myself and i have an unspoken rule about not doing anything productive on sundays.
