... but what's new there?
I know I should be nicer, and more philosophical and all that, but I'm not. I'm in one of those moods or phases when everything seems to annoy me, and make me grind my teeth and scowl, and feel more collosally curmudgeonly than I already am. I'm the sort of person I hate, actually. Always seeing the glass half empty and being jealous and resentful and downbeat.
I don't know whether it's my age, or just my horrible personality. Probably a bit of both. I've always been like this, but now, as the years pass, I just get more and more like an evil old witch, muttering in my cave and harumphing all the time.
I really must cheer up and adopt a positive attitude before RWA or nobody will speak to me!
