I don’t know if I’m necessarily the odd man out in this scenario, but once in a while I wake up Angry. I’m not talking “woke up on the wrong side of the bed” here… I’m referring to uncontrollable “if you even fucking look at me I’m going to gut you with a soldering iron then use your eyeballs for beer pong” anger. Normally this is caused by a lack of sleep, or perhaps hunger (I get rather grumpy when I’m hungry… what?), but some days (like today… HI!) nothing fixes it. And this isn’t really an anger management issue either. I can be civil, and it’s not directed towards anyone in particular… but it’s best to just leave me the hell alone. Aka – I put headphones on, sit at my computer, and rant (Hi!). And people steer clear.
But some day’s that just isn’t possible. For example – with my trip to California coming up this weekend, I have a lot of things to do this week. People to see, places to do. Wait… You get the idea. So I have to run around town, talk to people, get some final housework done, etc. Deal with people. But today is angry stabby-stabby day. So I really don’t want to be doing any of that. Solution? Death Metal and Red Bull. Hop myself up on caffeine and listen to god damn angry music. It soothes the inner beast. Or at least distracts it.
So, don’t worry, I won’t stab you today. Though I might think about it… unless you appease me with Red Bull, whiskey, or ciga… crappit I quit smoking… need a new appeasement mechanism!
