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.

3-VIII-2007 or Kickball Follies

I think there might be a few pictures of me from the after-kickball party. If so, I'll give a handy link (since I don't know how to post them here...), in case anyone wants to see what drunk people who play kickball look like! Go »

20-II-2007 or Holy crap!

09-VII-2019 or Look out, spicy bois!

I saw a meme that claimed there was a petition to change the name of fire ants to spicy bois. I am trying to be hip to the lingo the kids are using nowadays! They do like the word spicy, I'll tell you hwat. Go »

22-XI-2006 or Where have you been?

I know! I've been lax! I was hoping to have at home internet access by now (which I don't yet), which would have helped out with the blogging (and the GOO game...*grumble*). Go »

8-II-2010 or *sigh*

Short one today. Looking at my GOO record, I found that the first GOO I ever guessed correctly was Ray Charles. That is also the first GOO that Russ Wilhelm guessed correctly, or at least that's what I am led to believe by looking at the GOO. Go »
