i truly feel as though the gods/goddesses are conspiring against me...and you know, i don't think this is just my typical persecution complex/paranoid neuroses thingy going on...i am slightly befuddled by why this week has been proceeding in the manner it has...i have wracked my brain for whether i had intentionally cut someone off in traffic, flipped someone the bird, said particularly unkind things or just expressed utter ill-will toward another and actually i have been a pretty kind person this week...additionally, it is been beautiful weather and i have made a concerted effort to be positive, but shitty things keep started with the car doing not so nice things that got progressively worse...(things that i believe are going to be quite expensive)...then i got some kinda bad/unsettling news...then i lost a favorite earring...then having to drive over 600 miles this week when the price of gas is nearly 3.00/gal...then... saw the oilers blow a lead which would have brought them that much closer to putting an end to those annoying redwings...and now this is the absolute worst and most alarmingly, upsetting computer got a god damn virus and the most insidious kind that has nearly pushed me over the edge...yes, the dreaded adware-pop-up-motherf*cking-son of bitch- make my life miserable's know i think of all those damn people and their happy little macs and i just want to smack them all...especially my more than smug partner who just looks at me and says "yeah, that's why i hate, am i happy i have a mac" fact as a labor of love and being the true martyr i am, i have been attempting to write my prose of pity while closing nearly 60 pop-ups in just this brief 10 mins that i have been screw the impoverished(which, by the way i am nearly one), and the homeless, and the street-urchin olivers of the world...i my lovelies, now know true suffering...i have downloaded and installed untold numbers of scanning/cleaning/anti-spyware fixits in the last few days...currently, i am sitting here, in the middle of the night, trying to keep my poor, heavy-lidded eyes open as i await, once again, the results of yet another malware cleaner-upper...damnit, brangelina, i should be your latest charity endeavor...if you both really cared about humanity, you would send me a mac mini NOW...haven't i suffered enough???!!!

you have suffered more than enough. You don't have to do anything wrong to have your week or even your whole life fucked up by the capriciousness of Fate.

I'd offer advice, but no one likes advice.

What advice would you give to someone coming to your for help, who was in your situation?

go shopping...and drink up...oh and get a massage...just kidding...not about the shopping and the massage however as i an incredible whore of consumerism (when i have the cash that is...)...
i guess i would say shut the f*ck up and be happy you aren't living in darfur having just witnessed your whole family being slaughtered...
or i may the future change the oil in car often, save your money and buy a mac mini and keep better track of your shit!

I say "sorry, doll." It doesn't matter that other people have it worse off than us. When we have it bad, we have it bad and no amount of martinis can change that! (Or wait, CAN THEY???? - said in spooky thriller voice....)

Travel can be medicinal, but geographic cures never work. Travel can help clear your mind and focus on what matters. Moving does nothing, because no matter where you go, there you will be!

When I go to my counsellor, and tell her about my suffering, she NEVER gets on my case. She takes every criticism I have of myself, and turns it around into the strength and gift that underlies it. She doesn't deny my shortcomings... in fact, I wouldn't mind if she were better at denying my shortcomings. But she never sees them the way I do.

You are not a whore of anything darling. You must have a puritan gene in you that admonishes you for being human. I think you are ready to burst into bloom. Much of your angst, I think, is frustration at not blooming when the life essences are rushing through you.

The decisions you make in the next several months are going to affect you for a long time.

Oh yea, there are other things Tracey would say...

You have to be the biggest person you can, to tackle the things you want to tackle

Always be on the lookout for lighthouses

Are you getting enough sleep?

OK, and one more thing.... remember in Phantom Menace (Star Wars Episode I).... the heros are on a remote planet, stuck for lack of spare parts for their extremely cool space ship. The boss hero goes to make a deal, but he finds no way to get the parts. If they cannot get the parts, they will be stuck on this isolated planet forever.

So, the Jedi radios to the other Jedi: I'll wait here until another solution presents itself

I always thought that was the epitomy of cool under duress

You handle cool beautifully darling. I am certain you look a lot better than you feel. ;-)

It is going to get better, I know this.
