Rain Robbed me of a Post Today

I hate rain. Lame lame lamazoid. In books they always make it seem so cozy, like romantic and stuff. It’s DEF not. I thought for awhile that Big B and I should kiss in the rain, since it seems to be all the rage these days, totally what the kids are doing, but we tried it, and…LAME. Who needs a kiss to be even WETTER than it already is? Also, no kiss, however lip-smackingly delicious, is worth wet hair and shoes. It just CAN’T be.

At any rate, I find myself chillin with the C man watching Ice Age and wanting this day to be over. For it to rain an entire day in Utah AT ONCE is, like, a once in a lifetimer. Ick Eeww gross lame. Hate it!

I attempted to sleep through the afternoon in an effort to pass the day away, but that might’ve been even worse. I think the Dream Gods were punishing me for breaking a therapeutic rule (I, Brie, solemnly swear that I will not nap this weekend…) and decided that I deserved two jam-packed hours of nightmares. And, yeah, at least if you have the regular sort of nightmare you wake up, scared, all that stuff…but YOU WAKE UP. These nightmares weren’t sufficiently terrifying enough to warrant an abrupt awakening, but they were queasily creepifying enough to make me feel restless and MORE tired than I would’ve been had I stayed awake and endured the LAME wet afternoon.

Also, if it weren’t raining, I’d have been able to go out and have fun this afternoon, maybe frolic in the sunshine, snap some pics, and thus have some very helpful and hilarious material to bestow on you lucky readers who happen upon my blog. But instead, you get THIS. This nasty lameness.

Ooh! I have good news, but in a really shameful way. Like, I’m evil, I think, but that’s not the good news: The good news is that my dietary appointment that was scheduled for this coming Wednesday got moved to the following Wednesday. This is thrilling. This is extremely exciting. This is the grand prize of all prizes. Why, you ask? Because I have an EXTRA WEEK to gain weight and NOT be put in the hospital. Why am I evil? Because there was a death in my D’s family, which prompted her immediate and unforeseen departure. Obviously I didn’t kill the family member, but I might as well have for how beautifully it benefited me. I’m a disgusting human being. And of course, I would rather H be here and not have a death in the fam, but STILL, I feel SO BAD that I’m happy I get an extra week. Bad Brie!

Okay, I’m going to go now. My evilness is depressing even me. (Not that, you know, it’s that hard to depress me…)

Bonus points for you if you can count how many times I used LAME in this blog…

I'm the first to comment! what a privilege! Yeah, it rained here today too, major suckage, but it is oregon after all, so I think I'll have to get used to it. Nils and I kissed in the rain just once. It was way romantic, but we were also in a swimming pool. ever been swimming in the rain?

I'm glad that you get an extra week, Brie. I wish you all the best with your weight gain. I'm rooting for you! Take care!

love, kristin

First I love your art work. Its almost as good as real pics. You are seriously artistic, I think! Also what is a lamizoid? and we really can't help our thoughts, its our actions that we can do something about, so for reals you can sort of be happy about your good fortune!! No rain forcast for the weekdays ahead and blame the rain on conference.

It's a good thing you don't live here in Seattle...the rain capital of the USA. I HATE it, and I ask myself every year I'm here, "why do I stay?" I have no answer. It rains pretty much ten months out of the year and it sucks so bad. It's depressing and agonizing. I loved the dry-ness of UT and CO....wish I could be there now, as our rainy season has now just begun and the weather will be all doom and gloom for the next 10 months. Blech. Hate it.

Did you draw that?

If it makes you feel any better, I spent the majority of the day sleeping or trying to sleep and it was not raining here. It wasn't a gorgeous day or anything but I really had no excuse. Just ate and napped. I will be an excellent influence on you. :)

Rain always depresses me too. Especially the kind of rain we get here--it's so cold and I HATE being wet. Sorry about your nap, I've been having lots of weird dreams and nightmares lately and I know what you mean about waking up more tired than you would've been had you not even slept!

Oh, and don't think you are one bit evil for being excited about the extra week. Though I know they have good intentions and want what's best for us, it is so frustrating how treatment professionals think that using the tube + eating more = immediate weight gain. You'd think after so many years of experience they'd realize there's ALWAYS a lag time. Just hang in there, keep doing more than you think you can, and eventually it WILL pay off. In more ways than just staying out of the hospital.

Hey, I am glad you have an extra week to gain weight and not be put in the hospital!

brie said...

Courtney, thanks for your words. Because I know you know exactly what I'm going through, re: feeding tube, it comforted me. Man all this sucks and I'm getting down. Thanks for reminding me it gets better...

Hey Brie,
This is just a thought but it seems you're really into posting these days (which I'm guessing helps with the anxiety/crushing feelings?) Since I am benefitting from reading all of these awesome posts can I suggest a subject for one of your future posts? Can you write about how you and Brandon met? I am curious and love a good love story...you totally don't have to, just an idea! It might be a fun post for you to write too?

Boo to rain!I think it is supposed to clear up this week though so let's all have sunny thoughts!

Sarah said...

did you try the upside down spiderman kiss in the rain thing from the O.C.? because that might have made a difference.

I'm glad you have an extra week. It's okay to be glad that you have it without being glad about the reason you have it.

But use it wisely, young lady.

xoxo

8 times. Wow. I'm so lame for actually counting. :) I totally hear you about kissing in the rain. Highly overrated. Enjoy the sunshineyness today!
