I can't sleep.

I think I have the blues, as diagnosed by Holly Golightly. "The blues are because you're getting fat, and maybe it's been raining too long."  That about covers it.  My gym is closed this week and it just rains and rains.  I sit inside all day, staring at a computer screen, getting fatter.

I'm sick of my job, and sick of living someplace where I'm supposed be grateful for any day in June that the temperature manages to creep out of the 50's.  But mostly I'm sick of myself and all of my dumb opinions.  I'm thirty-six.  When am I going to learn to shut up once in a while? 

I know I'll feel better when the sun comes out, which is absolutely scheduled to happen possibly maybe sometime next week.  Temperatures could soar up to 63!

huh. i thought i was the only one who was sick of my own opinions. if i had to listen to myself go on and on the way i do sometimes i'd really hate myself.

but, still, i think you're awesome and i like your opinions. and, for your sake only, i'll wish for some sun, which, as chance would have it, is briefly making an appearance outside my window at this very moment!

This is why I am a terrible socializer because after parties, meetings etc. I do the whole "Why did I say that???Why do I care??" self-recrimination. If you did not have the opinions you have - which I value - you would not be half as amazing.
But yeah, June Gloom in full effect. We can get through it!

Please don't be sick of your opinions! Feel free to be sick of all the people who don't immediately see the high value of those opinions. Also, the weather really does suck. But your opinions are awesome and the world--or at least the part of it I work in--is much better for them.

Oh, I thought it would show you that was me, Lesley, who just commented.

Aw man, that is the best description of being depressed I've read. I guess I have the same problem. Let's get together sometime and see if our collective moping can squelch the joy of our children!

I think you need to move to California. But then, I think that's what everyone needs. Because I'm selfish, and it's warm.
