Impending disaster and mania versus happiness.

I’m exhausted. I’ve been working really, really hard on organizing my room. I’ve been putting eBay merchandise in one corner and shoving old furniture into storage. There’s STUFF all over the place. Much of it came from my mom, who’s downsizing; or from her late husband, who also had way too much stuff; or fromContinue reading “Impending disaster and mania versus happiness.”

It’s like I don’t listen! :o

So, did I listen to my psychic–my friend Ash–when she gave me advice about the future? No. Even though I paid her $25 for the reading, I didn’t listen to her. But I’m getting ahead of myself. What did she say in the reading? Let’s refresh our memories here… I’m sensing mother energy… A needContinue reading “It’s like I don’t listen! :o”

The benefits of moral superiority.

Today’s the second day of a three-day round in my coveted short-story competition. I woke in a great mood, well-rested, but with nothing yet written. No huge deal. Just me and the existential-crisis-triggering blank page. But then I opened my email, and there was a message from my mom. Oh, hell, no. I’d determined toContinue reading “The benefits of moral superiority.”

When the mothers talk…

I hate my mother. She called me this evening while I was watching Felicity Season 3, and she immediately started asking me if I have a cough or a fever. I was like, “Why would I have a cough or a fever?” And she launched into some sort of fearmongering response about the virus. She then spentContinue reading “When the mothers talk…”

Great progress with the weight-loss plan!

Okay, so, I have great news from the dieting front. I’ve figured out what I was doing wrong, and this breakthrough might even prevent the need for a weekly box of Cracklin’ Oat Bran. Here’s the skinny (pun totally intended): originally, I scheduled the following meal for brunch: Four turkey sausage patties (200 calories total)Continue reading “Great progress with the weight-loss plan!”

Random odds and ends from Meg World.

MILD TRIGGER WARNING: UNEXPECTED THREATS OF SUICIDE (NOT ME, I’M FINE) I feel tired today and braindead. I’ve spent the past two days helping my mom get ready to go back to her house in New England, where her boyfriend is waiting to care for her. She called earlier today and asked one of usContinue reading “Random odds and ends from Meg World.”

Winter highs.

This is the greatest winter I’ve ever had. A year ago, I was messed up in the head over Nate. Two years ago, Mother fell down the stairs under suspicious circumstances. Three years ago… heck, even I can’t remember that far back. But winter isn’t always a series of bad circumstances. Basically I can neverContinue reading “Winter highs.”

Colossal waste of money. (Going to a casino would be more fun!)

So, I have gossip. I called Mother today because I wanted to add a bit of drama to my life. She didn’t disappoint. I was trying to tell her about my diet and my writing, but she had one thing on her mind: my evil sister’s upcoming nuptials. Apparently, Mother is heartbroken that my brotherContinue reading “Colossal waste of money. (Going to a casino would be more fun!)”

Meg’s still angry! (And who wouldn’t be?)

I slept late today, until 1:30, and had a hard time surfacing. I kept falling back into dreams. In particular, I dreamt my brother was living in our spare room in the basement, and for whatever reason, I was sleeping in his bed. And he’d catch me and say, “What the hell are you doing,Continue reading “Meg’s still angry! (And who wouldn’t be?)”
