Sometimes, if you speak the devil's name, it goes away to make a liar of you.  
Dear Livejournal:

Depression sucks and I hate it.

Let's talk about some things which are awesome and bizarre that I should be enjoying far more than I am:

1) The Knitty baby bootie pattern "Tulip Toes" is complete and utter ridiculous fabulousness. I am knitting it in a sock yarn by Lorna's in the "Sherbet" colorway that is quite literally so cute that it causes instant squeee and the desire to lick your yarn. (I don't recommend giving in to that impulse.)

2) People who send me messages via okcupid who look like the unabomber. And email me in Klingon. Seriously, there are a lot of them out there. I should cancel the page that my sister and a friend of hers set up two years ago pretending to be me, but I can't do it, for the sheer wtf factor.

3) I found a video game store that sells original Sega Genesis games. That's right. Things only went downhill after the 16-bit glory days. (Important sidenote: We still have our original game system. Still hooked up to the television. I could never figure out all the buttons on the N-64 so, um, we stuck with what we knew.)

Also, pictures! People like pictures, and it distracts them from how I have become kind of sullen and mean:

Oh no! Livejournal won't let me upload those. :( My saving grace has been stolen from me by a persistent login error! Imagine I posted pictures of how we redesigned our apartment, some classic 16-bit goodness, a teddy bear I knit and a card I made, a picture of the doggy we were dog-sitting and a bonus photo found on my camera from God-knows-when of me doing a Captain America pose in a full-body sauna suit.

In conclusion: My life is awesome. I should not hate everything.

The end.

ICON! OMG. <3 <3 <3

Even though I have been playing Sega (we can't find our controllers for the original NES, alas), I have had the Mario theme song in my head all weekend...

I still have my Super Nintendo. Still play it. Couldn't play anything more advanced if you paid me.

I still have my Sega Genesis (two of them!)! And my Nintendo! (We also have the N64, the Dreamcast, and Three XBoxes I think!) I keep having to resist the urge to bring one or both of them to school with me, because I know if I do I'll spend all day playing 'Duckhunt' or 'Lotus Turbo Challenge' in my room.

Heeeeee!! I can't remember if I had my Nintendo at all at school. I don't think so... I think my sister had it with her.

Duck hunt!!! OMG.

Right now we're obsessed with the ring races from Sonic 2. Ahahaha.

Re: 16-bit glory

We only had Sonic our whole lives, and could only play Sonic 2 at friends' houses, and now we OWN SONIC 2 FOR OUR VERY OWN! It's like brand-new Sonic! New worlds! New bosses! OMG, LOVE.

So exciting!

Your life is most definitely awesome! Waaay better than mine, anyway, heh. My mom keeps telling me to write a list like this, and for the life of me I can't think of one thing to add to it. *huggles*

*eyes you* You're harshing my depression! :-P

(That's okay. I think depression deserves to be harshed.)

Yeah, my life is pretty sweet, and lots of amusing things happen. I'm only bummed about it because chemicals are mixing wrong in my brain and I'm too stubborn to adjust my medication until mi depression becomes life-threatening. La!

It is hard to make lists of squeee when your environment does not change much, because you're trying to find squeee in old things. I'm not sure how we can fix that for you. Sending singing telegrams to your house, maybe?

In conclusion: My life is awesome. I should not hate everything.

This was the summary of the post I made just last night!

I'm with you. Depression sucks. And it's going around in spades. A friend's good friend Sean said there is something about Pluto coming into something or other that is digging up old and shitty stuff from our pasts and so I know LOTS of folks who are just down and blah.

Here's hoping Pluto gets its butt away from that whatever as soon as possible. Love you lots. *hugs*
