but when has that stopped me?

GooCon sounds awesome! I hope a lot of people come! I doubt anyone will honestly be looking forward to meeting me in particular (and, seriously, your expectations of what I'm like in person are too high, I am certain), but I think it will be awesome to meet people I only kind of know. Plus, most people know to expect a fruitcake, so I don't have to worry about acting too looney around people!

I have like three huge things going on right now. But, one I can't talk about because it mostly involves the wife (and I would get killed), the second involves a horrible situation that I can't discuss due to it being related to work (and I can't chance it), and the third is boring, but I can discuss it safely...or mostly safely. I'm on medication, but it's too early to say whether it's going to do me any good yet. Speaking of which I have to go take a pill right now...done deal. The problem is that the doctor gave me the three weeks of sample pills on condition that I seriously consider seeing a therapist. She gave me two options of therapists she recommends, neither of which is covered by my insurance. So those two are out (I can't afford such luxury). The one I know (Dr. Coo-Coo) won't put me on medication, because he doesn't believe in it, so that's out. And I really can't afford to go back to him either..which means the other options available to me are probably the same amount, which is beyond my means at the moment. I don't know if she will continue me on the Lexapro (combination depression and anxiety medication! What a deal!) though if I don't go to a therapist. I am feeling kind of better (what is better?), and I don't think I am worrying as much (except about things that really do need worrying about...no irrational worry), but results can take up to 6 weeks, and I'm on week 2. Who knows? My follow up appointment is on the 31st on this month, so we'll see how that goes, I guess. Update to come!!

The song of the day is the Oddity I just posted. Go check it out! It's pretty funny, I think!

I hope that the situations that you can't talk about work out for you.

Last night was the last night of the regular kickball season. The playoff tournament is going to take place while I am in Denmark, so I am done. I will miss kickball. Go »

A quick message to those concerned (and apparently slightly confused about Florida locations): I am fine. I was not in the path of tornados. My place of employment was not in the path of tornados. Go »

Short trip, what? Iceland was pretty cool (as in cold as sin), but I had a great time! Reykjavik is a cool little city, but outside of there...nothing. Go »
