Because of the crabby nature of nearly the whole month of March, I have royally fucked up my year of ‘fuck it.’ March is nearing the end, and hopefully we will be lucky enough to have some sunshine and a little warmth. I need some natural Vitamin D stat!
Here are a number of things that I have been focusing on to lift my spirits as of late:
*This dog. What a great heating blanket she makes.
*An email from a bestie entitled ‘To cheer you,’ containing obscure rants from an evening we spent together in 2010. Literary snacks included in this email:
Scat on the flute—-> spoken beat poetry
You can be the girl singer, I’ll be the dude
Roll tumbleweed roll, roll across my heart
*Lovely #1 turning 8 whole years old.
*Lovely #1 wanting to rollerskate for her birthday party
*Rollerskating myself. Only fell down one time…and then it was just like being 7 myself, rollerskating in the basement listening to MJ’s Bad album.
*Lovely #1 starting junior roller derby in 2 weeks. Kick ass little lovely!!
*This band a friend of mine took me to…not quite post sickness, to cheer me…called Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. It was just what I needed. A little bluegrassy and fun…and we got to meet them after because there were maybe 40 people in the whole place. Check them out if you like.
*Justin Timberlake. I admit it’s not quite my style, however I’ve had a special place in my musical heart ever since Justified and that catchy song Cry Me a River. I went last Thursday to get the new 20/20 cd. Sold out. I went for wrapping paper Saturday and it was there. Score. Then I almost lost it in my car cd player. Many crabbies would’ve happened.
*fried chicken. Ultimate comfort.
*Faking it. Fake it until you make it. Chances are…before you know it, you’re crabbiness will have faded and that fake smile will have turned into a semi-real one.
*some strange tv show called American Ninja Warrior. These super humans compete through insane obstacle courses…I think, if these people can do this, I can at least overcome a little crabbiness.
