well, this is different...



I'm really sorry. I'm not mad. Or sulking. Honest.


It's just that after a year and a half of being blindsided by negative things, I've finally experienced some positive blindsiding. Out of fricking nowhere. And I have absolutely no idea of how to deal with it...

Way to turn a positive into a negative. If you won the lottery, you'd spend all your time worrying what to do with it. And, it's great that you have a new friend, but you still have old ones, also. Isn't there room for both ?

the rotten correspondent said...

touche.

you are absolutely, one million percent right.

Tians.sis said...

You do remember saying "positive" don't you?

LFG said...

Just like that ? No F.U. wrapped around it ? Are you feeling okay ?

the rotten correspondent said...

No. You're right. I totally admit it.

You have a problem with that?

LFG said...

Just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

the rotten correspondent said...

no shoe.

sorry...

Stacie said...

Yeah for something good happening in your life! I hope you'll eventually share the story with us. :-)

Come on then....spill the beans. If my life is going to continue to mirror yours then I am in need of some cheering news.....

Maggie said...

Change is good....

*looking at comments - looking at you*

Hmmmmmmmmmm........something's up.

Frances said...

Wow!
so you can only blog when you're having a BAD time, not when things are GOOD - and we all sympathised with you when someone told you were whining. Now is your chance to do NON-WHINING and tell us Happy Stuff! YAY Yippee Hurray Hurrah Huzza - Yalla habibti - al ussa?

flowerchild(: said...

yay! Something good has happened! It's good, are you going to tell us?

LFG said...

see, I'm not off on a island.

Devon said...

I read every single post and occasionally I swear I missed something.

So, what happened? Does it involve the big O?

Don't judge me... you all were wondering!

Iota said...

You're such a tease.

Frances said...

LOLLLLLL Devon - we're all HOPING!!!

LFG said...

All ready asked. I would say, but.......... Let's just say that the climax of the story has yet to be reached.

Jen said...

Hooray, for RC. I am chuckling at LFG's comments, because, of course, he is right.

Hopefully the Positive will stay a Positive.

I suddenly feel like singing Particle Man.

Mya said...

I'm completely lost. Do you have a new man? A chocolate sponsorship deal? Book deal?? Enquiring minds need to know (as you so often say!)
Whatever's going on - ENJOY!

c'mon girl, don't toy with us.
what's his name?
is it the handyman?

the rotten correspondent said...

You all make me laugh. And you all make me very happy to have such an enthusiastic cheering section in my corner. Thank you for that.

For those of you who feel you've missed a post (or two), just chalk this up to one of my random, stream of consciousness little snippets. I was going for a mood rather than specifics, but I have a feeling I kind of missed.

The handyman update is...zilch. He emailed me probably eight weeks ago that he would get back to me to set up a time to look at my house in a week or two.
And...nothing. He may be hot, but he's clearly a flake. What does it say about my last twenty years that I can't even fantasize about a flake?

But the most important question this brings up is this - LFG, why the hell didn't I murder you in your sleep all those years ago when I had the chance?

LFG said...

Now "they" think we were sleeping together. We could have a who's got a bigger mouth contest, but no doubt it would end in a tie.

LFG said...

And to answer your question, obviously, "poor judgement".

Frances said...

LOL
Just LOL
You and LFG gave me a laugh I really needed.
Glad it wasn't the handyman... I didn't think he was good enuff for you!
hugs Thank goodness you held back on LFG though. LOL

Thumbelina said...

Gate crashed and ROTFL!
LFG brings out the best - and I guess you would say the worst - in you! Hilarious. Aims' comment nails it for me.

Now I just want to smile and hit you a high 5 for the positive (long may it continue) and tell you to hurry up and spill! The suspense is killing me. :)

Tians.sis said...

How about you and LFG teaming up on a post one day? I'm sure we could all use the laughs.

LFG said...

Didn't we just ? I all ready felt like I was a comment hog on this one. And Thumbelina, help my old analog self. ROTFL = ? I need a TM dictionary. Maybe googling will find one.

Akelamalu said...

Aw come on, tell us your happy stuff!

Iota said...

Get on with the next post, will you. Puh-lease.
