I'm annoyed. Nobody wants to know how pissy someone's feeling, I know. Whenever I come across a blog filled with stupid complaints (as most complaints sound to outsider ears), I move on very quickly, before I catch the irritation bug. This explains why I haven't been blogging for the last few days. But enough is enough.

1. First and foremost, I am suddenly stuck on the screenplay I've been working on for the last couple of weeks. Out of the blue, minor details have started running amok and obstructing the view. This is really annoying.

2. There are so many things I should be doing, but I just can't seem to get it together. A few wonderful friends that I haven't written to in forever because it's been so long and I need the letter to be extra good, and I'm feeling like shit so it would end up being a shit letter. And these people deserve better than a shit letter, especially after waiting for so long. Sorry, guys... I do love and miss you. (I'm talking primarily about you, Chashah, Bea, and Nathan.)

3. I had what I thought would be a meeting regarding a new fashion-related project the other day, and it turned into a psychoanalysis session. It was interesting and hopefully helpful, but it did bring lots of scum to the surface. Grrr. Ignorance is bliss, tis folly to be clued in.

4. I'm sick of all these people with their stupid fucking egos. Like I give a fuck how cool you think you are.

5. Brace yourself, because this is extra stupid. I'm just going to be honest here, though - the Kurt Cobain biopic, Last Days, is being marketed here as the story of rock legend "Kurt Coburn". There is a program where a leggy half-Japanese fashion model with questionable language ability hosts an English-language quiz called "Listen to me?" (that's her standing outside in her underwear, holding a tennis racket, below). Last week, I called the Virgin Cinema Roppongi Hills pre-recorded "English" cinema schedule service and couldn't understand a word they were saying (if you don't believe me, check it out for yourself: 03.5775.6090). I'm not sure why these examples of poor English annoy me so much. They always have. I guess it's partly defensiveness; as a translator and interpreter, it's infuriating when people have no respect for what I do.

6. AOL. Will. Not. Cooperate.

7. It's been way too long since I last left Tokyo.

8. I ate too much tonight.

9. My old crush, who I'm completely over BTW, loves to push my buttons by e-mailing me out of the blue and then promptly going MIA soon thereafter. I'm not going to fall for this anymore. Go ahead. I don't even remember what you look like anymore.

10. I really have been avoiding the news, but it's nearly impossible to ignore the stupid shit that's been going on concerning the environment, Israel-Palestine, Mr. Bush, WBC, and most things Japan-related.

I think I need to start making a list of happy things to balance out this rotten mood.

yes yes-- all that shit is always there but focus on the the happy stuff-- what you focus on is what you bring to you, law of attraction and all that--

I'm glad your back and hope this cranky mood isn't the result of your reading deprivation ..

BP! Thanks for the comment. I know you're right. I'm feeling much better now!
I didn't suspect the reading deprivation was behind all the crankiness.... but you may be onto something there. Did that happen to you?
