through the viewfinder



i woke up feeling irritated. irritated that the bell jar was so quickly over and that the ending was so ambiguous. irritated that americans don't realize the rest of the world uses the metric system and they're the weird ones. irritated with styled, perfectly-presented lives that pretend to be all quiet and serene when they're put up online. irritated at those roosters out there, trying to outdo one another. irritated that no matter how much laundry you do, there will always be more. irritated that i still don't really know what i want to be when i grow up. irritated that i'm beginning to suspect that i actually am grown up and this is just a condition of life. irritated at the gorgeous thomas rode's new paleo cookbook (even tho' i'd like to sleep with it under my pillow), because i really doubt they had that much cabbage in the stone age. irritated that kittens become cats so quickly. irritated at how high the ground water level is with all this rain. irritated that i wrenched my back and nearly fell into the well trying to get the perfect shot of some leaves against the blue sky.

maybe i'll just go back to bed.

Just reading between the lines here but you seem a little irritated?
Feel better soon.

This made me laugh...though I'm sorry that you're irritated. These are all things to be justifiably irritated with though...so I really don't blame you. :)

Here's another one or two irritants: try putting on your pants while one arm is in a sling and adjust to using the computer's mouse with the 'wrong' hand.

Hey! I just blogged about wanting to see more "real life" on the web too!

I've totally had days like you seem to be having.

And my husband had to educate me on the metric system (which confuses the heck out of me as I'm not a numbers gal). Guess I was 'one of those Americans"! tee hee

Hope your tomorrow feels better.

Does kind of break my heart that you live so far away...I just love the way you think and you truly need you to be my "in person" friend.
