Cranky is thy name

Thank you GW, for comming up with the name my brain couldn't. Joe Ranft was the Pixar animator they did a tribute to at the end of Cars. It was really quite sweet. I could have looked that up, but why waste energy when you have smart friends.

My stupid computer is fritzing again. Now it is moving slower than a paralized snail in a snow drift. I can't figure out what is going on. After it plays the screensaver for 20 minutes or so it goes to standby, even though I have it set not to. When I try to close any applications it won't let go of them .ARGGG!! Right now I'm at the library.

Of course this being only a couple weeks before my Depo shot is due, and with certain issues going on, my crankiness meter seems to be off the charts tonight. I turned in my best Mommy Dearest performance of the year tonight. Warren had asked me to help him pick up his room for when Gramma (my mom) comes. I had just got home and did the dishes and straightened up the kitchen. I was upstairs half watching SVU, and attempting to figure out why my computer is being so electronically challanged. Warren came up to start asking me if I would come downstairs and I managed to gradually work my way up to flipping out on the poor kid.

I ended up leaving in a bit of a huff and walking to the library to use the computer (it's only about 4 blocks away). Warren followed me for part of it, with more arguing (read my being cranky and doing a Faye Dunnaway that would make anybody proud). Than he went home and I went to the library for D*land fix.

Later he came and talked to me, about how he hates being home alone, and has nothing to do since his best friend is rapidly approaching grounded for life status. I know there is plenty he could do. He isn't five, and is quite campable of many household chores. However I can understand the lonliness and boredom, though I can think of many things he could have done besides watch tv. But I still feel like and ass. He wasn't being unreasonable, he wants to spend time with me, doing something besides watch me go postal on an electronic POS. He ran home to put some socks on with his shoes. Looks like it is time to eat crow pie, and play mom.

I think I need some chill time anyway, and maybe some dinner. Warren's head didn't really taste all that great.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
