Word Vomit

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

It's unfortunate we all have our moments of doubt & insecurity; it's worse when these moments stretch into actual crippling beliefs. Tonight is a night I could allow myself to become a victim to my own sorrow, to the disgusting entitlement of self-pity. I feel fat, ugly, devoid of talent and reason. I see clearly all my short-comings as a friend and person. etc etc etc.

Please let me digress.

But. I hate victims. I recognize these murky feelings, cough them and forcibly vomit them from my system. Dealing with them as they are, instead of ignoring, I can exorcise my annoying demons and get out of this house and hang out with people I love.

Thanks for putting up with my worst and I'll always try to give you my best.

“Beware of her fair hair, for she excels All women in the magic of her locks; And when she winds them round a young man's neck, She will not ever set him free again. ”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I am naturally good at being blonde. I've tried every other hair color under the sun. Black, brown, auburn, red, so pink you could scream, blue which faded to the green of over-chlorinated blonde and an accidental purple over a summer once. But blonde suits me best, in looks and personality. I was feisty as a redhead and probably soulless (sorry), emo with black and absolutely vivacious with pink.

I do and say really dumb things. Which makes blonde jokes funny and I chuckle and roll my eyes. Which makes blonde Aggie jokes even funnier. And let's throw in the sexist humor while we're at it!

Blondes aren't dumber than anyone else; our blunders are just more noticeable, or as I like to think it: we're simply less forgettable. :)
