I am really trying to improve my mood today.
I couldn't wake up this morning. I have a giant zit on my forehead. I went to Starbucks and the peppermint mochas are finally gone. I got to work and had a thousand emails from people that annoy the fuck out of me. I had two very obnoxious voicemails from people who also emailed me. I deleted both of them. I slammed down the phone. I said very loudly, "I hate my job."
Which isn't true, I really like my job, but I hate some of the people I have to deal with.
I put on my headphones, listened to the Deftones for a little bit while I sulked in my cubicle. Then I felt a little better.
Lori and I are going to have lunch at this great little place that has - seriously - the best homemade tortilla chips and salsa. Ever. And I'm a connoiseur of chips and salsa. So this makes me feel a little better.
Also, as part of my "using music to regulate mood" regimen, I'm listening to this disgustingly girly and upbeat compilation I picked up for free when I once spent over $50 at a store in the mall. I can't listen to it at home because Manny would balk at some of the contents, like the Ashlee Simpson song - but I skip that one. No, really.
I feel a bit better now.
Here is some lovely artwork from my daughter. This piece is "Scary Bat." Enjoy.
