It is from Bridesmaids and it is so so funny and I want to have Kristen Wiig's babies every time I watch that scene of her getting drugged and crazy on an airplane.
Speaking of drugged and crazy, many of you know that I have underlying depression issues that will not ever go away, that I will always have. That I need my anti-depressants more than I need these glasses on my face. I usually do pretty well thanks to the Miracle of Science. Unfortunately, last week my medication stopped working. As in stop stopped. As in crashed. It was bad bad. I am doubling up my adjectives just so that you understand how horrible horrible it was. Horrible. When I get like that (maybe has happened 4 times total in my life) I shut everybody out but Mr. Floozy. And nobody gets to see me. And then Mr. Floozy and I wait it out with the help of McDonald's (McMedicine) and our doctor. (Who is really really cool (cool). It only freaked me out a little when I realized on the first visit that I went to high school with him.)
I am now on a new medication, but the med switch was wretched.
I may write about it more someday. I may not. I may write an epic poem that nobody will understand but myself. Who knows.
Okay, back to this custom order. I made it for my new friend (Hi, Caitie!) for her friend whose birthday was September 11th as in yesterday. It's all been finished and delivered and everything and I hope that the recipient was pleased. During our email exchange, I couldn't help but wonder what that must be like to have a birthday on September 11th? Especially during your formative childhood years. Was it strange to have everybody solemn and depressed on your birthday? Did you ever feel like you had to hold back the celebration? Ira Glass needs your story on This American Life, so why don't you get on that, please.
Meanwhile, I am getting better and adjusting to my new brain chemistry and my heart goes out to all of you who have depression or birthdays on September 11th.
I lurv you all. Ah-men.
Bonus points to anybody who gets my reference in the post title!
