Abandon all hope, ye who enter*

Existence is no more than
the precarious attainment of relevance
in an intensely mobile flux
of past, present, and future.

-Susan Sontag

It is, apparently, time for the commencement of my annual depression-fueled semi-annual existential crisis. No really, there I was, driving, and the next thing I knew, all I could think was "what the hell am I even doing here?" And that seems to have dug itself in, because I was, honestly, doing so well, and while I'm not as emo as it sounds, trying to make major life decisions while nagivating the spaghetti bowl interchange makes me cranky. So, here I am, and my subconscious keeps hitting me on the head with a baseball bat, and now I'm trying to figure out if I was actually happy, or just avoiding what I could and then repressing what I couldn't avoid.

Luckily, I have my choice of four bottles of wine.

So, yeah, not that I'm in the habit of posting regularly now, but don't expect to "see" me around for a while. My head needs sorting.

*If you have already abandoned all hope, please disregard this notice.

It must be in the stars... I'm going through a similar state of affairs right now too. Except mine is more "what the hell do I want to do?" driven.

Best of luck to both of us on our journies here, eh?

PS - Wine is fine, but liquor is quicker. ;) Unless it's a bottle Fonseca Tawny port from TJ's or plum wine or sake.

Plum wine is the devil. Never again will it's sweet deathly nectar pass my lips... I like wine because even if I drink a whole bottle all in one sittings, it usually doen't hurt the next morning. Unless it's ice wine, and then, yeah, might as well be drinking the hard stuff.

I miss wine in quantity...
Dude, no fair. I drink two glasses of red in the evening and I'm in for it...sometimes before the morning. Nothing worse than waking up at 4am with a splitting headache.

However, it has forced me to look at other things. One of these days I'll introduce you to the loveliness that is gin & tonic. Oh..and mojitos. Can't forget those...

*grin* Don't worry, you're not a freak. It's something in the water, because everyone I know is going through the semi-annual spring funk (except, oddly, Myra who is typically always in said state of mind whether it's spring or not).

I'll call you at a more decent hour. ;)
