Safely Back

I went off to build my beloved picket fence yesterday ( that's a whole other subject) and I was looking forward to a peaceful and constructive day. Suddenly out of the blue in comes a very angry sms. I'm in a spin. What have I done? Oh. I wrote on a female friend's wall on Facebook. I'm an idiot. She has Obssessive Compulsive Disorder and I thought she would get my little rant on the problems she has been having with her internet connection. A person who has this mental condition should be avoided like the plague at the best of times and even more so when she is having computer problems.

Anyway I thought about my situation ( after I had frantically tried to convince her that I didn't call her a fuckwad but the naughty telecom company person who was not helping her) and here are the new rules for my engagement with this person.

1. Don't write anything to her

2. Don't write anything to her

And 3. Don't write anything to her.

There I think I have got it now. My life is feeling calmer already.

New to overthinking

I been writing this shit for nearly 3 years and there are so many posts here. So..... where do you start if you are a newcomer? Start by pissing off. Do yourself a favour and don't get started. You will hate yourself in the morning.

What????

You are still here?!?!

Oh well..........................

I hope you enjoy your little visit. And I hope you like my funny little musings......................

No I don't!!! I don't give a shit!

Just piss off!

Overthinking just makes me angry. You don't want to be angry do you? You wouldn't like me when I'm angry. ( Bill Bixby- Incredible Hulk circa 70's) And I don't want to make you angry. So pleeease............

Oh well. Stay if you will.

Oh. By the way. I have a split personality too.

Snarking

That's what I do. I snark. I make comments that are barbed both in content and intent. Oh. I feel so awful now that I have discovered the word for what I do. I don't know why anyone would want to know me now. They all must be a very forgiving bunch of people I tell ya.

I know why they put up with me though. It's because I make up for my nasty little habit by being soooo friendly at other times. It's how I prepare them for the emergence of the snark . It waits patiently inside of me for the right opportunity. Just when they are thinking what a great guy I am-- out it comes. Gotta keep them on their toes.

amazing what you learn whilst looking at other things. I was reading this article on Ben Stiller's latest movie. It sounds exactly like me. and the rest of the ageing population of Western men for that matter. Life does disappoint and what have we left to do?

Snarking.
