Wargh, I'm in a pissy mood now.

She called me a cold-hearted ******* before hanging up.

I slapped my 50 pound tool kit on my bike, rode over to her house to work on the motorcycle, and she left me the wrong key to the garage...ok, simple mistake, but frustrating, nonetheless.

As I'm riding back to my house, I'm 3/4 of the way through the block and I hear a car whipping through the gears behind me. I get one of those feelings and I know he's gonna pass me to save half a second. Sure enough, with around 6 freakin' inches room to spare, he passes me. I through my hands in the air and see him look back. He gets to the stop sign, doesn't stop, hammers it to get out of my way, but I catch him at the next intersection and start screaming at him. He yells out a meager "**** you," and I just lay it on thicker. If I'd been on the drivers side, I'm not sure how it would've ended. I guess it's not a good day to threaten my safety...

ok, still pissy, but less so...

It's better to be pissed off than pissed on.

Too bad you did not have an accidental pedal strike into his passenger side door.

Unsafe, if this isn't a message from The Universe that you need to be done with her immediately, I don't know what is.

Are you a nice drunk or a mean drunk? If the former, go get yourself a beer.

ditto.

so, this calls for a drink (which normally I wouldn't condone, but since once upon a time when I had boy troubles, my anti-alcohol mom TOLD me to drink)... so now I'm tellin' you.


... so I take it you weren't able to do any work on the bike today?
I say she swings it by and drops off at your place, to work on at your convenience until the job is done.

drank, quite a bit. Felt pretty good. Now I'm resting my back before I go to bed. I had a long talk with her tonight. I'm just more confused than ever...

drinking and then talking to the ex is going to be confusing (and is against the rules we set here in foo this week.)

I'll fax you a whiskey, now off to bed.

No, I talked than drank. I've learned my lesson about drunk dialing. Oh yeah, that's a whole other thread.

After this weekend, no more talking to her.

Man, I'm like an addict..."Ok, just this one last drink and then I'm done, but wait, I just had something crappy happen, so I deserve this one, but this will be the last one."

Crap

you know... last time I had it out with a girl I just got her to hit me a lot. Then I called the police. We were both at work... three cruisers showed up -- and it was awesome.



**except that I now feel the need to almost constantly look over my shoulder - at least until I move to a different city.. (but still it was totally worth it).
