Well, unfortunately I have to deal with humans all day long. The companion animals they keep aren't so bad - usually.
Web Masta is one of the few humans I truly adored more than life itself. smiley - brokenheartsmiley - wah I wish I knew why I had to fall for such a goregous creature, who claims to not be of the same species. smiley - winkeye (she's gotta be - I mean, c'mon! one look at her and your gaydar goes ballistic!)
And I agree, Snailrind, I prefer to vent here than anywhere else. I'm not allowed to vent at home and when I gripe to my friends I feel bad about it later. Here I know I am welcome and I can be a miserable whining bitch all I want. smiley - yuk There is no sympathy here, however one can get the occasional virtual smiley - hug which is something I never receive in real life, so it is nice to get here.

I like that Satre quote, Ormondroyd.
May I use it on my space?

By all means, Táralómë! Spread the gospel of grumpiness! smiley - ok

But it is Sartre, not Satre. Better get that right or the 'learned and grumpy' effect will be spoiled! smiley - winkeye

I got curious and wanted to find out if Sartre has said more things that might be useful - and I like this one:

'Only the guy who isn't rowing has time to rock the boat'

Wouldn't that be the perfect thing to throw into flame wars?

Yeah, sign me up.

I've cast off my former Pollyanna-sunshine outlook on life and have vowed to spend the rest of my days being as sarky and narky as I bloomin' well please.

I think I'll need a new name though, LuckyStar is far too upbeat for a grouch.

Here at P.U.D.D.I.N.G., we always take a special grim satisfaction in welcoming a convert who has seen the error of their cheery ways. So welcome on board, Lucky-Star-for-now. smiley - starsmiley - sadfacesmiley - hug

How about Dark Star? Or just Unlucky Star? smiley - fullmoonsmiley - star

Wildman - I'm not really mad, I've just been in a very bad mood for 40 years!

Dark Star!!!

Brilliant film! This is what space flight is really all about - 20 year mission of mind-numbing boredom. Even blowing up planets gets to be tiresome on a trip like that. A great film for P.U.D.D.I.N.G. members!!

Hmmm....will have to check into that one. Who plays in it?
Welcome Lucky-Star-for-now....give us a good gripe! smiley - cross
Thanks for the hugs, too, Taralome. Now if I could only get some real ones...*sigh* smiley - blue I would love to get another long, warm, tight hug from Web Masta. She smelled REALLY good! smiley - blush

This is really tricky smiley - erm

I'm so used to seeing the glass half full, that's it hard to think differently. I tell myself that Life's a piece of sh1t, when you look at it, but I end up whistling and looking on the bright smiley - eureka side of Life smiley - whistle

I think I should do this one step at a time, sort of like a daily challenge. So today I will listen to Alannis.

PS I think the whole "star" thing has to go, dark or otherwise.

I see what you mean about the gaydar, Madman. Though I guess if someone doesn't fancy you, their reason makes no difference. smiley - cuddle

I left my job today. smiley - brokenheartsmiley - wah It was a nice job and I've been there a long time, but I became too ill to do it. I think Lucky Star's optimism is infecting me, though, as I have nice plans for my newfound spare time. (Quick! change your name! Perhaps 'Dark Asteroid' would do.)

Still, everything's scary and new, and I don't know what's waiting for me round the corner. smiley - yikessmiley - monster

No this is too hard!

I spent all yesterday being a stroppy cow: I had Bjork on the car sound system all day, I totally ignored my son except to tell him off for a minor misdemenaour, I swore at my daughter when she accidentally broke a wine glass, I cursed at the traffic before giving up on my journey and going home in a huff....


...and the result?

1. I am miserable - so much so that I burst into tears smiley - wahevery 10 minutes
2. My family dont recognise this harridan and are in shock
3. I'm more anxious and stressed than ever.smiley - erm


I can't help it - I have a naturally sunny and calm disposition, and trying to act out of character really freaks me out.

So here's my suggestion - I leave P.U.D.D.I.N.G because I really really don't feel I belong, and you'd only have to drum me out at some stage. I'm jealous smiley - envy of all you who can pull off being mardy and grumpy, and I wish you well.

But can I pop back if I need a bit of a rant sometime smiley - grovel

smiley - hug P.U.D.D.I.N.G. isn't about being miserable and bad-tempered for the sake of it, you know. It's about not forcing a smiley - biggrin when you don't really feel good, and demanding the right to be grumpy whan that's how you feel.

But if you want me to take you off the membership list, I will!

Ooh! I bet you feel ruddy irritable now, Ormondroyd!
smiley - stiffdrink for our fearless leader!
However, I will be more than willing to offer up extra gripes in place of Lucky Star's rants, as I have a fresh new batch. smiley - winkeye
For starters, I'm still sick from some flu I caught back at the beginning of November, Web Masta is being much more frigid than usual, my kitten, Aidan (a proud member of the Cantankerous Cats), is being a snotrag, and I'm in debt up to my eyeballs! And I'm so dyslexic I almost typed "up to debt in my eyeballs!"
smiley - crosssmiley - yuksmiley - illsmiley - steamsmiley - wahsmiley - groan
Tell ya what, Snailrind, you can have my job. All you have to do is stand around, hold animals, kiss veterinarian's asses, and if you are a woman you get to be treated like you are an illiterate idiot 5 year old who can't be trusted with the simplest of tasks. FUN!! smiley - yuk
Seriously, I feel for ya, my friend. smiley - hug Here's hopin things turn out okay for ya.
