How am I doing?
I've mostly been without internet since Sunday morning.

I want to say something about how I'm doing though. Cause lots and lots of days, I don't want to talk about it.

In particular, I am not always filled with happiness and joy! I know that's shocking. So if you ask me how I'm doing, and I don't say Great! or Things are looking up! then you damn well better take that for an answer! What the fuck is it with people questioning my mood? Arguing with me? Seriously, I know my mood better than you.

Things aren't bound to get better. In fact, I have a year of worsening crap to look forward to. I don't feel bad about throwing my mom's impending death at people like a weapon. If I don't want to talk about my mood and people can't take my deflections or a hint, I'm going to be as blunt as possible because it shocks people and it gets them to shut up. When I say I really don't want to talk about it, I really don't want to talk about it. Stick to small talk if I don't open up.

This entry brought to you by people from New Year's Eve.

Welcome back to the Internet.

What did you wind up doing for New Year's Eve?

I am not really back on the internet. I'm just using a cafe for a bit to catch up and stir things up. Heading back up to Ferndale tonight after mentoring.

There was a long, long conversation about this late on Tuesday, after the crowd at my place had thinned out.

I learned that in Germany they simply don't ask this question in the mindless way we do. Thus, the friend that brought the subject up, having lived in Germany for several years, gives frank answers that usually leave people uncomfortable and a little weirded out. Serves 'em right.

Also, I hope you realize that when I ask - I am actually asking, and am perfectly prepared for you to tell me you don't want to talk about anything substantial.
