Manic Panic


Yeah, so I've done a little soul searching again. Something I should probably avoid, because it never leads to anything interesting or fun. I've been evaluating, again, some of my behavior, or at least rewound the tape of my thought process lately. It basically goes like this.
1. Turn it up.
2. No, louder.
3. That doesn't seem angry enough.
4. When is the next show?
5. What can I mix with Theraflu?
6. Why don't we open that other bottle.
7. Ooo, another smartass comment to read.
8. I need to check the blogs again.
9. I need to check the blogs again.
10. I'm bored again.

I know from past experience that I have a bit of a tendency for manic depression. Not anything that is clinically, like, "Oh my god, you need meds!" But enough so that I recognize when I start a cycle like this one of stuff just never being enough and me constantly seeking more of everything, I'm headed for trouble. I know I am an adult, but I really am up for a weekend of poor behavior. Of course, I have enough control to keep myself in check, but I feel like a caged tiger right now. Just don't open the door.

Why do your manic moments always seem to coincide with my mellow moments? Right now I want nothing more than books, beach and a big, frosty gin and tonic.

If we were simultaneously manic we would probably end up getting arrested or something, so perhaps it is better this way.

Arrested at 25, pesky. Arrested at 41, a problem. Let's avoid it. I'll turn up the volume instead.

Uh...yeah... I can name that tune in three notes!

Been here before have you?

I would be willing to get thrown out of Target with you if that would help.

Cart Races or Hide and Seek? Your choice. How about Drunk Demolition Derby? Even more fun! But who will drive us if we drink?

Cart Race Hide and Seek. We could probably walk home, particularly since we won;t have anything to carry since they won't be letting us stay long enough to purchase anything.

[Redacted] can name it it 2...being the anonymous indie hipster that he is...

Name that tune.
