Welcome back to "funk"y Town. I don't mean that in a good way, either.

Last night was our company picnic. Usually it is at Oak Grove (local park near the river, named for a private Lutheran School). But due to flood issues as well as certain other issues (such as a company picnic is not the place to bring every relative you have). It was at work (we have plenty of outside room on the West Side of the building). This made it easier to keep an eye on things and to limit the number of guests people brought (your own kids, plus either a spouse, SO, or one guest.

I made the mistake of bringing Herr Schiessakopf. Who managed to drink enough to act like an idiot and than tried to take extra food and booze home. I warned him, but you can't reason with a rockhead. There was also a disagreement about a cooler being stolen, but the cooler was ours.

So today I got talked to by Wendy (sort of the call center senior management, I'm not sure what her exact job title is). She wanted to hear my side of the story. Which I told her (though had I had time to think about it, I probably could have explained things better). Mike has been banned from future company events (More than fine with me) and she is going to talk to others about it, and get back to me. I just hope things calm and work out.

Not only am I humiliated, and standing on the rug (to mangle and old cliche), but I seem to also be the newest subject of company gossip (here in ND the grapevine is twice as fast as any viral net info).

I'm trying not to let it get me down. I'm keeping on keeping on, though its getting harder and harder. By the time I get home at night I just want to eat, watch some bad tv ( I have a serious CSI obsession at the moment, my phone even plays "Who are you?" by the Who, for those that don't have a designated ring tone. Not to go off on a tangent but I also have Pink Floyd's "Wish you were here" for my mom, the Imperial March" for Mike and "Born to Be Wild" for Warren. ) eat something and crash.

I'm trying to get more exercise and sun to see if that helps chase the Blue foggies away. But I'm so stressed about money, and Warren, and work and 1000 other things (did I mention my mom is having cataract surgery at the end of the month).

I had to get a second refill early on my Ativan as I just couldn't handle it. It's a good thing the depo keeps Aunt Flo away, or I'd be in Bismarck doing 20 to life for multiple homicide, and I detest bright orange clothing.

sorry to be comming back on such a down note, but I need to vent and I really miss this place. I am slowly catching up on everyone else. I think I am missing the password to Poolie, if she is sharing it. I'm having trouble getting Mary's to work for some reason.

I think (hopefully) while the weather is nice I will try to get here as many days a week as I can manage. I need to vent, or I'll explode (or more likely implode, as I seem to do)

My Dermatillomania has been going in to triple overtime lately. I may have to make another appointment with Kathy the pdoc, to see if she can get me something stronger or recommend something. I can't go on like this.

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.
