The Rudeness of Being Geoffrey [Aug. 7th, 2004|06:31 pm]
Young Geoffrey
Fuck.

Feel relatively good, all things considered - which means I feel terrible.

I just - despite my better judgement - returned a call from my sweetie. We didn't talk long, as I found myself getting irrationally upset about, well ... nothing at all, really.

I swear, quitting smoking feels exactly like what I imagine really bad PMS does.

I stumbled on a really interesting journal, probably wrote 500 words in response to a post within it - then in a fit of frustration deleted the entire thing - sorry about that, gensachichis: from an elaborate introduction/hope you don't mind I added you to nothing at all. Well, hope you don't mind that I did.

(Do I ramble? Well, I ramble; whaddya expect? Coherence? Hmph!)

Laura, I really am sorry for brushing you off when we talked just now - but, well ... yeah. Conherent Geoffrey not now right.

Oi. And I haven't even touched a bowl yet. Thank God I taped two episodes of the Simpsons and am gearing up to watch The Big Sleep on TVO after that.

There really is no point in carrying on with this, is there.

Young Geoffrey go ... do something else now.

Oh, don't I know the feeling. Quitting smoking feels EXACTLY like bad PMS. It makes you bitchy and crazy and moody. But it will pass. Just stick to it! Quitting is good for you! Hard. But good for you. I'm glad I quit. Ok. Rambling now.

Rambling (especially in this journal) is okay.

I look forward to being glad I quit - right now, I just feel like a bloody rubber ball.

Me in all my lameness will say this: Hydrate. Cleanse. Wank ;)
Ok, now I'm just being a goof. This too shall pass (me being a goof and you jonesing).

I fear I'm going about this all wrong, unless ...

1) beer is good for hydrating;

2) sitting still and not getting myself much more dirty can be considered cleansing; and

3) completely forgetting the virtues of wankind is a form (however obscure) of wanking in itself.

Anyway, don't worry about being a goof - that's my default reaction when someone is having a rough time. Laughter often is good for the soul.

my cake is -so- good. I'll actually save yours for..errr..you! And would it be okay if we spent some time together tomorrow, then I could take you up here to meet the rents? (dont stress ...) And then we could plan the camping thing. My dad said he'd talk me food shopping (chicken fajeita is a good first night camping meal:) ) xoxo , have a good night muffinhead -laura-

I didn't realize you wanted me to meet the rents today (yes folks - if you think that might be interesting, how do you think I feel?).

I'll still call you noonish, but I honestly don't think I'll be up for that sort of thing today.

I think that makes more sense, yes. (Have I mentioned recently just how incredibly level-headed and tolerant you are? What makes it all the more incredible, is that you are also mouthy, opinionated and, er, quite up-front about your own wants and needs. How can I not be sweet on you?)

Why in the world do I not want you to get (another) tattoo? Since when have I had a problem with tattoos? (Just make damn sure they sterilize things properly.)

I have had both bad PMS and the bitchiness of quitting smoking (AT THE SAME TIME), and yes, you are very right.

I just played excessive amounts of Super Mario until the murderous rage died down. I highly recommend it.

Running a linux-box, Super Mario is out of the question. Thank god for neopets.com.

Hiya...you added me. I will ask the same questions I always do.

Who are you, have we met, how did you find my journal, why did you add me?

I just re-read the above and I promise I'm not as Inquisition-like as all that.

I am Young Geoffrey; I don't think we've met (but it's a small city - or seems so, sometimes); I stumbled over your journal doing random searches while trying not to think about smoking; and I know longer remember precisely what prompted me to add your, but it might have been your quote from Einstein, or maybe your appreciation from open minds.

In any case, feel free to poke around my journal. Pull up a chair if you like, don't if you don't.

Call me when you wake up and we'll work out the details. It looks like I'll need to buy a tent today also.

:} I remember when my mom quit. You are not the first person to feel like you do, and you can get through it. I am really proud of you. You are doing what some people in my life have not had the strength to even try.

What worries me is that I've had the strength to try a number of times; it's following-through that's hard.

(So I am happy - and even a little proud - that I've made it 3 days this time around. Not my best, but suddenly I am already in my top 4 or 5 tries. It's embarassing when you decide to quit and you can't even last 2 days.)

Following through is definitely hard, but having the strength of character to deal with the problem at all takes a lot. Sounds like you're on the right road!
