Happy Grump Day

Sure, it's supposed to be Hump Day, but honestly, I'm not 'feelin it'. I am tired, I need a vacation, I feel grumpy and irritable, and anti-social, and I just wanna go home and lay in my bed in the quiet and meditate.

When I am feeling that way, I like to keep to myself. I will usually do lunch alone, try to crank up the tunes, etc. I'll block out everyone and their noise, and of course, every little noise will agitate me and get on my last nerve... Everything from the jingly-dingy-ringer on the cellphones of my neighboring cubicle-dwellers to the giggling of other cubicle-dwellers around the office.

Treating myself to a tasty gourmet coffee can sometimes ease my pain up a little, or just the getting away from the office and taking a lunch time drive might help as well.

Hopefully, these feelings of ill-will and general malaise will fade by tomorrow. Until then, tell me... What do YOU do on Grumpy Days???

Later That Afternoon In "Satan's Crotch, TN"...

That's right, it's a "Grump Day" update... A combination of flat tire vs. Memphis heat and rotten Grump Day luck = One ugly tire! Fortunately, I was able to fluff it up enough to make it to my regular tire shop for a change-out. Still, that did nothing for my bitter-acidic case of the grumbles.

I'd better leave well enough alone... Until tomorrow guys and gals.

On grumpy days I try to avoid social contact at all costs. I clean my house like a meth head with a spare toothbrush, and I try to burn nice smelling candles. When all that fails, I throw breakable stuff. :) Hope your day gets better!

i act like a bitch, then deny it and blame everyone else for how i feel.....when that doesn't work and it hasn't for 52 years....i fuss at my fat thighs, my fat butte, and my fat gut.....when they don't answer.....i cry and pout...by then its time to go to work, where I can continue my grumpfest and get paid for it....

grumpy days = watching quadrophenia, or going for a decent ride on the scooter.

both always seem to do the trick.

I'm right smack dab in the middle of a grump day. I need HELP! I'm leaving for vacation next week and even *that* isn't helping.

Ugh. Let's be miserable.
