Yep - its another moan  
I'm sure I used to post happy stuff here...

I have (in no particular order) a sore throat, no voice, the shivers, a headache, my period, writers block, comm envy, too much easy access to chocolate which, along with a gym membership I'm not using, is making me put weight back on, a funeral to attend on Thursday which will involve hideous family politics, too much work and no desire to do it, a metric ass-load of laundry sitting in piles in the kitchen, a dead home PC that I need to replace the PSU in, a birthday present to buy for a soon to be 8 year old...

and a hopefully understanding f'list who don't mind I use this journal to vent...

Why is it not Spring yet? Daffodils always cheer me up...

Ugh. Poor you *hugs*.

To cheer you up a little, maybe?

If there is anything at all I can do to help, I hope you know to just ask.

Those are lovely - thank you! How could anybody not be cheered up by them?

Most of the pile of crap (please God including the cold!) should be gone by the weekend - it's just having so many things come all at once that got to me.

Just by responding you've already helped tremendously - I couldn't ask for more - or for a better f'list!

Wow, that's a lot to deal with...poor you. *hugs*

Is there anything I can help with?
WYG: bear hugwastingyourgum on March 3rd, 2010 09:48 pm (UTC)
As I said to queerlyobscure the hugs are more than enough help but thank you so much.

If we do manage to meet up in London I will return them with interest! (assuming I don't still have the cold!)

*lots of hugs* Hugs maybe don't help much, but I've got a big supply of them :) Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hugs always help. Thank you.

Well, let me add my sympathies to the pot. I hope you feel much better soon.
WYG: bear hugwastingyourgum on March 3rd, 2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
Thanks.

The cold has flattened me today and tomorrow I have to go to a funeral 100 miles away. I should be staying in my bed but if I miss it I wont hear the end of it for the next 20 years so it's not really optional! Fingers crossed I can shift it for the weekend at least!

And one of the nice things about having virtual friends is I can not worry about passing it on to any of you!

HUGE *HUGS* and many, many warm thoughts.

I went to make you a pressie, and almost felt like adding a daffodil next to this shirt (as well as the smile) was a little redundant-- but meh; no such thing as TOO cheery. ;)




(I probably should not be even remotely entertained that your Miseryville is in Ohio. But, oh, I really am-- because I've lived in Ohio twice, and that's where all of my in-laws live. ;))

put this on your desktop and just keep starin' at it. hopefully it will take some of the blahs away...

I love that picture - and added daffodil just makes it even more happy! Thank you!!! And ty for the hugs too - MUCH appreciated.

Not sure why I plumped for Ohio - I've been to a place just outside Columbus a few times (London, OH) and just remember it being depressingly flat.

Ohio seems to be one of those states we go for when wanting something "typically American" - though my husbands favourite euphemism for "middle of nowhere" is "Moose Tits, Nebraska" - I believe Americans have a location in Egypt for that reference?

My husband's from Geneva, an hour east of Cleveland, and I lived there for a few years. Some of the nicest, most down-to-earth people I've ever known lived there... but it was also depressing how nearly everything was closed/run down all around us. What I saw of Columbus wasn't bad (the twice I was there, at the same convention center, lol), but five of the twenty cities on Forbes's list of depressing places to live (or whatever it was called, heh) were in Ohio.

Not that I'm far off; I'm only half an hour from the state line, heh.

And why yes, we've got BFE. :D

{{lots of hugs}} Drink lots of fluids, take drugz, get more rest (in your spare time)... and try to look forward to that vacation time at the end of the month. {{more hugs}}
WYG: bear hugwastingyourgum on March 3rd, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
OK - I've had 16 pints of lager and snorted two lines - how does that help the cold?

Vacation cannot come soon enough! I'm looking forward to being your official translator... ;)

Well, I'm late to be posting a pic of daffodils so have a poem instead. From William Wordsworth, "Daffodils" (1804)

And, of course, {{{{HUGS}}}}

I also suggest that when you go shopping for the almost-eight-year-old, you buy yourself a toy. Something that makes you smile and that has absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

BTW: Daffodils are blooming in SE Texas so yours can't be that far behind...

Thank you - one of those poems you think you remember until you read it again. I shall "dance with the daffodils" in my mind's eye until they start springing up for real...

Thanks for the hugs too - you guys have all been your usual awesome selves in cheering me up.

I have one of those - it's called a husband. ;)

Aww. Poor you! I'm so sorry you're having such a bad day. Here, I drew a picture of Gordon to cheer you up a bit. I hope you like it!
Feel better! ;)

(I actually sketched it when I first read your post, but it took me this long to scan the stupid thing into my computer and then figure out how to post it here. sigh.)

Aww - that's lovely! Thank you so much!

Damn - I wish I had even a teeny amount of that talent for drawing!

I'm glad you liked it. I hope you're feeling a bit better. :)
