Signs and Portents [Feb. 18th, 2008|03:56 am]

Yanno what feels weird? Well, I'll tell ya.

Lip spasms.

Weirdest feeling I've had in quite some time.

I wonder how much of it is mental, because I feel like I should just shut the fuck up and stop trying to be helpful. A little too much of my ego is wrapped up in being useful to people. Plus, sometimes I manage to be the complete opposite of helpful. And I have no idea what I'm talking about. I don't even know who I am. The more I learn, the more I discover that I don't know nuthin.

Also, I talk too much. Barely spoke at all for the first dozen or so years of my life. Only learned social chatting in my mid- to late-teens. Had to teach myself to speak in front of people in my twenties (learned to improvise by doing off-the-cuff security presentations and keeping cranky law enforcement officers appeased, and guns holstered, through wit and the judicious application of coffee).

Apparently, now I gotta make up for all that early silence with a mouth that runs like an old faucet with crumbly, nearly-gone washers.

I'm not really even sure why the hell I wrote this post.

Shutting up.

Hah! This post is an insight into your character. Stop telling yourself to shut up. You are interesting and people appreciate your help.

Pygment had Bell's Palsy last year, which led to all sorts of weird facial things. Sympathies.

Wow... it was totally worth it to read this and just get that snippet of a scene of you learned to improvise by doing off-the-cuff security presentations and keeping cranky law enforcement officers appeased, and guns holstered, through wit and the judicious application of coffee.

Like... totally.

There is no need or reason for you to shut up. You're fascinating, funny, and intelligent. Really.

Mmmmmm. It's okay to be meddling woman. Sometimes facilitation is needed. And it's good to realize that it's not always the right thing to do. You'll be a better meddling woman in the future for having that knowledge.

Random muscle spasms can be a sign you need more potassium. Eat a bannana. If it still doesn't go away, at least you will have eaten a nice bannana.

Rar.

What they said.

*I* don't think you need to shut up.
