Waving the white flag

I really misrepresented my friend in the last post. I know that I had asked her not to tag me in photos and she didn't, and as soon as I sent an email she offered to remove the pic. And Stewie, you're right - I'm not fat, and for the first time in 10 years I'm not even overweight. I am much larger than my twenties though. And I am unfashionable. Apart from my belt.

The last post points to the fact that depression is still kicking my ass and I have lost all sense of perspective. In other words, I am a boring, whiny pit of need right now. I will come back when I feel I have a rational perspective on life and can not only right less self-pitying posts but am also inspired to feel that I can give your posts the attention they deserve instead of wanting to comment, "Life sucks. It really does".

Because really it doesn't. My life included.

Some days you're the dog and some days you're the hydrant and that's okay!!

Who isn't larger than they were in their 20s?~ Honey, I'm three pounds shy of how much I weighed when I delivered my second child and I'm not fat either. Well, at least I don't think I am. I need a Stewie. LOL!

Oh dear lord, I am almost twice the size of what I was in my twenties. Partially because in my twenties I ate a raisin for dinner and called it a day. However, I have always been unfashionable---I am as unfashionable today as I was when I was 13 and pieced together outfits from the thrift store and K-Mart. Sigh.

In any case, the internet has made the world a very small (or seemingly so) place to be---we all seem to be connected by the ivisible cyber web. If you are that passionate about your feeling for being represented on said web, then you have every right to assert them and expect to be respected.

Finally, I can tell by the few photos I have sen of you that you are WAY, WAAAAYYYY more fashionable than me, belt or no. And that's a fact. Sigh redux.

I'm deliberately out of fashion. but that's OK because I'm an old bloke.

Being British, I only have one peice of advice for you.

Stiff upper lip old gal.

You just reminded me: I forgot to e-mail you something. I'm doing it right now. I can identify with your depression, 100%

I can totally relate about the no fotos to strangers (and others) thing! I like my privacy, and I hate it when some of my friends forward our group fotos to people I don't even know!

Even worse is when it's forwarded to people I know but can't stand...I don't hang out with those idiots for a reason, so why should they get pics of me when I don't want to have anything to do with them?

P.S. You look great.
