I had an epicly bad day yesterday. I'll spare you the badness of my day, but just know that it made me cry more than a few times. And computers hated me yesterday.
To combat my bad day, I decided to blast the soundtrack for 9 to 5 the musical and sing really loud. This may not have been the best of ideas that I had (since my bad day was work related). The lyrics? I'm gonna shine like the sun, let these clouds roll away from my door. When it's all said and done I won't be at your mercy no more. I am taking what's mine; I'll be fine. I am second to none. And when the losing's all done, I'm gonna shine like the sun. Which made me SOB like a child. The next song I listened to? is basically about how the things in your life are going to suck unless you change them. Which made me cry harder. While I'm driving.
I didn't have time to relax when I got home, because we immediately went out to meet Gzilla's parents for dinner. It was one of those 20% of your dinner goes to charity things, and it was my friend's company's fundraiser, so we went. Alcohol was needed. After a pretty good glass of chianti, some cheesy stromboli, and the best part of it all, homemade GELATO (apple. pie. gelato. omb.) I was starting to feel better.
Normally when I have a sucktastic day, I listen to sad music. Apparently this doesn't work anymore. Apparently what works is wine, gelato, and sitcoms. I went home and watch the two-week old episodes of How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory... and laughed so hard I cried. And THEN I felt better, finally.
What's your bad-day remedy?
