Mystery in the ‘burb + Crazy Update

28 08 2008

Mystery in the ‘burbs
It’s only quarter after eight and this has been an odd morning.
(Typically, my ‘hood is wicked quiet.  The most noise you’ll hear is synchronized lawn-mowing.)
As I pulled out of my driveway, I noticed this, stuff, all over my neighbors lawn.
Being as occasionally nosy as I am, I put Ye Ol’ Trailblazer in reverse and check out the ‘sitch.
Plunged into the yard without a specific pattern is plastic cutlery.
Yes, I’m serious,
Plastic forks, knives and spoons are all over.
The “kid” next door is like sixteen or seventeen, so I figure his friends must have been bored last night.
Driving down the “main” street, I see that the flags that mark like, gaslines and chemically sprayed lawns, are in peoples mailboxes.
In fact, a couple mailboxes were covered in twine.
uh-huh.

Crazy Update
I had my follow-up yesterday to see how the Zoloft is holding the crazy back.
If you’re not on any mood-altering drugs, I’ll help you out… see, some people, when they get depressed or anxious, tend to have those feelings amplified by certain drugs, so the doc has to keep evaluating them to make sure the crazy is at bay.
After a fun assessment (“how many days out of the past two weeks have you felt hopeless or helpless…”) I have the all-clear for three months.
Doc says that fall, when Season Affected Depression Disorder kicks in, compounded by Holiday Horror, will be the true test of how this dosage works.
So provided that I do not crack, I should be good to go!
Hooray!

i dig your new layout! as for zoloft, i think i could use a dose or two. does it really help?

Holy crap, I want to kiss the person who invented Zoloft. Maybe even have their babies if they’re not dead. If you want to continue this conversation “outside” drop me a line…

Oh my…was there a full moon last night? The wildest your neighborhood gets is when we’re all drinking in it.

I mean, except the zip code/municipality thing isn’t it like, OUR neighborhood?

Yeah, but when I drove to work this morning I didn’t get to see any cutlery. We are divided by cutlery of the plastic variety.

Ah, daaaaaling, I forgot that us Hamburgers must use plastic cutlery…. OPers have “silverware”….

I would love to see plastic cutlery all over my nextdoor neighbours lawn! (I’m being a b****) (They drive me mad … they park three cars outsid ethe house and yet the drive, which could accomodate three cars is empty… and I end up parking in the pub car park….)
Sorry, I suppose I had to get that off my chest!
I’m glad the drugs are working..helping…making you feel better. I hope it continues…
You need to ward off the post holiday blues… I’ve just had a rotten week feeling sorry for myself wondering why nothing has changed… (Perhaps that’s becasue I have made no attempt to change anything…)
I’d better go… you seem to have the ability to let me unload over here!
;o)

Oh my! I’ll make sure not to get on your bad side! I’ll gladly take the pub car park!

When i was on Zoloft, it gave my hands “the shakes”… i’m sure I could’ve made some woman very happy with that affliction, but alas…

Thank goodness the side effects have been minimal… nothing fun like the shakes though… drat.

Maybe someone tried to steal their silverware and the burglar only realised his error when he got outside?
