At a leisurely 3mph I am guessing about 20hrs depending upon traffic.

How long would it take to walk 60 miles? I'm guessing on the distance, city to city.

Okay, poll question. Serious question but not a serious topic.

Tonight: Netflix & takeout, or go out and see Identity Thief or Zero Dark Thirty?

It's a toss up between Netflix and Identity Thief. I gotta be in the right mood for a Zero Dark Thirty type of thing.

If you're fighting breast cancer, it takes three days.

Netflix and takeout.

And I don't know if you like stuff like this, but I'd go for some pure fantasy. I've been trying to find time to watch Snow White & The Huntsman. Charlene's costumes look really awesome.

Saw Silver Linings Playbook last weekend.
:)
And I'm glad I did, because seeing it now would make me depressed. Last week my state of mind wasn't so bad that I couldn't appreciate the movie.

Ugh, I'm torn! One friend voted strongly for ZDT, saying that he heard IT sucked. Another friend saw IT and said it was hilarious. Another friend voted for Netflix & takeout.

This is a good point. It's also a movie I kind of want to see *with* someone, to be able to talk about it afterward.

Just go to a comedy club.

I'm sure some, if not most or all, of you are sick of me and my problems. But since in this forum, you can choose to read or scroll by or judge me with a silly icon, too bad... here goes. Fair warning for those who DON'T want to hear it anymore.
I'm climbing the walls with anger and despair. Unless I have something to really concentrate on, my own mind is my worst enemy. Work helps a little but only if it's a problem to solve - the routine stuff doesn't keep my mind off of the whole situation with Jasper.
People keep saying this is normal, etc. but I haven't been through enough relationships ending to know firsthand. I can barely function, and can only sleep with sominex. I pulled myself through the initial pain last fall by staying busy, but my energy is spent and I don't feel like I have it in me to start all over again.
Of course, back then I was caught up in A's drama with the boyfriend (who is currently weaseling himself back into the picture, but I can't and won't consume myself with that... unless it's a needed distraction?). I can't spend all my time with my close friends dumping on them, and people keep asking me if I'm okay because I "look sad." I feel like I should be walking around dripping blood, how visible my hurt is.
I've taken a first step toward finding a professional to talk to and it feels good - as good as anything feels right now - to take action. But in the meantime, I'm miserable. And everywhere I look at home, it's memories. Different apartment but all the same stuff.
Anyway... I don't really know what I'm trying to accomplish by telling you guys this. It's just an outlet, I guess. And I really do feel bad for coming across so melodramatic. It's not like anyone died.
You're in my thoughts. I have no advice other than the same stuff everyone else says, but I do understand (been there, done that) and I can say it will pass...some day.

If you need distraction I can point you towards the shit-storm that is about to descend on my life in the form of my sister and all of her problems....<sigh>

We're going to see Identity Thief tomorrow night (BD dinner and a movie). I vote for that one. You need some comedy in your life right now.

And 60 miles...3 days.

Thanks, I sent that to a friend who was stuck in traffic, as I was enjoying the boatride.

It looks really relaxing.

Alas, no boatrides for me; all our waterways are frozen.

Not that I don't appreciate all of you and all my RL friends, but there's something really amazing about getting support from those who have lost loved ones to death (you, and my friend C at work - her husband died a year and a half ago). It makes me feel guilty and grateful, if that makes any sense.

Well, here goes on of Edog's conspiracy theories:

"The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining that a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour."
