CATHARTIC EXPLETIVES

I'm having a bad day.

I've been having a bad day for the past eight days, as a matter of fact. These days, every other word out of my mouth is a flowery expletive (oh, the cathartic experience of swearing is rather exquisite!), and I've lumped most everyone into a single incompetent-uncaring-soulless-bastard category. Other peoples' feelings, needless to say, are the least of my concerns at the present time, so it should come as no surprise that the number of folks I snapped at this past weekend alone easily surpassed the number of confirmed allergies I have. For instance, I got into a heated debate with my new neighbor and ended up calling him a foolish and self-centered blowhard. It's all right because he is a foolish, self-centered blowhard. It's also all right because I caved into the guilt that nagged me for the remainder of the day and ended up buying him and his wife a box of welcome-to-the-neighborhood and it-was-probably-not-right-of-me-to-call-you-a-foolish-and-self-centered-blowhard-even-though-you-are-one cookies and cupcakes from Out of the Kitchen.

Yes, reader, this behavior is clearly out of character for me. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was my usual even-tempered and pleasant self. Now, I've suddenly transformed into this scary person, who enjoys peppering everything she says with fucks, shits, and stupid-fuckin-bitches and sulking and/or crying when she's not eviscerating anyone who gets in her way. What's up with that?

Maybe I'm just tired but that doesn't seem to be a good enough excuse.

But I ramble. I meant to say that I'm exhausted. All of this bitterness is really doing a number on my system and, as a result, I don't feel much like blogging today. Perhaps you can entertain me with your comments, instead? So, I open the floor to you, readers. Go ahead. Say anything.

So, these two guys walk into a bar.
Which is kinda stupid - cause the second guy shoulda seen it after the first guy ran into it...

Ok. You need to go on holidays! Things will probably be as crap when you get back, but take a few days out of your life and chill out. If you don't have holiday time left in work chuck a sickie and spend two days at home in your PJs eating junk food and watching DVDs... its a better alternative to killing everyone you work with/speak to.

Also swearing can be a great creative outlet. You could work on creating a masterpiece?!

Have you heard the one about Bush, Obama and Hilary Clinton going on a cruise?

I'd be too busy tearing up the pages of the notebook to pen a masterpiece at this time but thanks so much for the words of wisdom. I've noticed that your English has significantly improved, by the way. Wonderful.

Unless long hours of reading and/or watching Yankees games on Friday nights and watching Saturday afternoon matinees alone can make someone pregnant, I'd say it's safe to assume that I'm WITHOUT child at the moment.

Thanks for your interest.

Thank you for noticing my linguistic improvement.. I have taken to reading the dictionary of an afternoon... it's a right page-turner, but the plot's a bit all over the shop.

I thought your swearing masterpiece would be more of a performance that written work... just one beautiful moment of crude insults brought together in sublime anger. I'm sure if you filled out the right form you could get funding for it!
