Winter blues and the 1950s wholesome upbringing

Well, what a good job it is that I am NOT a diva. If I were, I’d be stamping my foot and saying “Why the hell did no-one but Lyn of Australia comment on my post yesterday? All those readers and only one comment. Well, they can all stuff it!”

Fortunately, I am not a diva. I shall carry on, unabashed. (I like that word.)

Dave: What time are you going to the pictures?

Sue: I’m leaving here at half past five.

Dave: Oh, it’s a late one.

Sue: No, it’s an early one.

Dave: I thought you were going this afternoon.

Sue: I never go to the pictures in the afternoon. i don’t agree with it. I might possibly go in the afternoon in February, when I am so fed up with the winter I feel like slitting my wrists.

Dave: Maybe if you went earlier in the winter, you wouldn’t feel like slitting your wrists in February.


At 5.30 yesterday I set off to see Mary and Max. It is an animation and I hate animations, but it is an award winning film, plus, I am trying to broaden my cultural input. If you want to increase your understanding of aspergers syndrome, I recommend the film. It was subtle, intelligent, and perceptive.

Some people in the cinema also thought it funny. I did not. The only time I laughed was when Max said: “When I was young, I invented an invisible friend called Mr Ravioli. My psychiatrist says I don't need him anymore, so he just sits in the corner and reads."

Hi, Sue, I love your blog! My excuse for not leaving any comments is that my computer has broken and I have to borrow other people's - not the ideal situation. However, I plan to buy a laptop very soon, so there will be no excuse. I visit your blog because it has a cosy feel - and also I visit when I need an injection of normality and serenity. (It doesn't matter whether you agree with me of not because those are the reasons for my visits!)
I love the new look of your blog too, everything needs to be changed around and freshened up sometimes, and blogs are no different. (If Dave isn't so keen, perhaps he could start his own blog...?)(I'd read it.) And, even if you are a diva, does it matter? In fact I don't even consider it to be an insult - I don't know if you are one or not but I don't care. And neither should you. (IMHO, of course!)

Normality and serenity - I like it! Which blog can *I* visit to get some of those? Thanks for your comments, Marilyn. I feel encouraged.

Well, I think first you have to know what qualifies as 'normality and serenity' to you, and then try to find a blog which can bring them to you. I'm happy that you feel encouraged, you should do!

PS that last comment wasn't anonymous at all! It was simply me, Marilyn, and I don't know why my name didn't appear. Sorry about that. I blame the borrowed laptop.... :)

Thanks, Marilyn. I thought it was probably you. Otherwise, it was ever so slightly spooky. x
