I’m drunk.

I’m also depressed.  Well, not right this second seeing as how I’m drunk.  But on a whole I think I’m suffering from a bout of depression.  I should go see Dr. T since I know how dangerous it can be for me to be depressed.  But money is so tight (one of the reasons why I’m depressed) and I don’t think I can afford it.  Xapmat and I had made plans and we’re just not able to fulfill them at the moment and it upsets me.  Anyhoo….  I’m not sure how much more I have to say about that.

Pondering the disease known as Socialism

Posted September 5th, 2009 by aleximoon

I love Florida, seriously, I don’t think there is anywhere else that I would rather be.  But oh, how I wish this was a blue state.  Okay, we did go blue for the presidential election but that was a hard won battle that my mother and her young democrat friends could tell you all about.   I am so tired of being in the super-conservative, crazy-minded, right-wing armpit of the state.  There is a tea party held outside of my store every weekend!  These people don’t even know what they are angry about.  All they know is that they’re angry and they want everyone else to know that they are angry and hope that others will want to be angry right along with them.

I would think it would be exhausting to be so angry about everything all the time.

On the front page of today’s Naples Daily News there is an article about how the school boards of Lee and Collier county have decided not to show President Obama’s talk to the students in the classrooms.  Now, it was an optional thing, and I’m not terribly upset that they’ve made this decision.  What bothered me was the article.  Everyone that they talked to about this issue was all for banning it from the classrooms.  There weren’t any interviews with parents that may want their kids to hear from the President.  There was no dissenting view.  And I know there are dissenting views out there.  I live in Lee county, I work in Collier county, I’ve taken pride in voting in every election since turning 18 and I am a dissenter, damn it!

God forbid Obama take an interest in our youth!  What gall our president must have to tell our kids not to do drugs, to stay in school, and to have good role-models.  Oh!  The Socialism!  We can’t have our kids exposed to the evilness of it all.  As if Socialism is some sort of disease they can catch from the President on tv. 

Why are there so many stupid, stupid people?

Gaming

Posted August 17th, 2009 by aleximoon

We had a fun night of gaming.  The usual suspects were in attendance, Erin, Billy, and Erik.  We also had Ashley and Matt who have played with us a couple of times before.  And Ashley even brought a friend who had never played before. 

 

I made dinner, Italian chicken with pesto egg noodles and Ashley brought some dirt pudding.  Nom Nom Nom…

 

The storms are still turning in the Atlantic but it looks like we won’t have any problems here.  Ana has pretty much blown herself out of Bill is looking to sweep to the north. 

 

Things are pretty good in Kirsten’s world atm.

It’s been a quiet hurricane season.  Then we get to August and the storms are just rolling off of Africa one after the other.  I know that I shouldn’t worry.  I know that I shouldn’t watch the weather channel 24/7.  I just can’t help myself.  Storms make me nervous.  I have a phobia, Brontophobia, which is a fear of storms (not brontosaurus like one might think).  It’s gotten a lot better since my time in therapy with Dr. Tobler but it hasn’t gone away completely.  I can drive in bad weather now as long as I don’t have to go far.  I haven’t had a storm-related panic attack in ages.  I’m well on my way to recovery.  Course, it’s hurricane season now.

 

And the storms, they are a’coming.

Sorta Moved

Posted July 15th, 2009 by aleximoon

Jim and I have sort of moved into our new apartment. We’ve spent the last four days boxing, bagging, and tossing out all of our stuff. The movers came and moved all our furniture to the place in Bonita but there just seems to be a never-ending amount of crap that we still need to go through.

It’s a nightmare.

But it will all be over in a week. It has to be. We’re not allowed back into the Promenade after that. SIGH.

And so this doesn’t sound too doom and gloom here is my Grandmother and her pal Jane.

I’m 30 now. My birthday was on the 30th. I’m not sure how I feel about this.

Weddings

Erin and Billy got married on Saturday! Woot! I finally have a brother. I sort of thought he would be smaller and cuter but I’ll take what I can get.

I’m not happy with work right now. I feel like they are intenionally looking for stupid things to give us a hard time about. I’m not sure why, we have actual issues that they can hassle us over, why nit-pick over unimportant crap? Maybe they’re just tired of harping on the same problems. i know that I’m certianly tired of hearing about the same issues. But is having a section set perfectly to planogram, a section that we don’t have the product for even though I have alerted home office to the issue on several occasions, a gripe worth having with us? I don’t think so.

It’s stupid upper management, political bullshit.

Seriously.
