I get tired of me.

Some days, from the time I leave work at 5:30-6 ish until I return to work at around 8 the next morning, I speak to no one except myself.

While arguing is nearly nonexistent, it's really not that much fun talking to myself.

I get tired of me.

I have the same thoughts over and over. Or at least, variations of the same thought themes over and over.

I go through my mental list of people I wouldn't mind talking to and I find some lame excuse not to call any of them. Usually it has something to do with not always wanting to initiate the conversation. I end up sitting in my chair, falling asleep shortly after a valiant attempt at reading.

I'm not very good company. Many a good fire goes to silent waste under my watchful eye.

I can't wait to get to work in the morning.

You don't argue with yourself? 'Cause I do, all the time. With myself, not yourself.

Pick up the phone, John. :) And perhaps I should take my own advice, too.

No, I don't argue with myself! I wouldn't want me to think I look stupid.

Thankfully, tonight I got to have dinner with this woman that I daughter :)

It's been a long winter, John. I think the cold weather and lack of sun has sapped a lot out of many of us. I've done more sitting and 'non-communicating' since Christmas than I think I ever have.

Get outside and share with your neighbors. Or maybe...if you start arguing with yourself, you'll find out you're smarter than you thought and feel like calling someone up to boast! ;-)

Hi John! Visiting from Ame's blog. I know exactly what you're saying here - I feel this way a lot.

Perused a few other entries and I enjoyed my visit. I'll be back around again. Have a great day!

Oh my goodness, I just noticed you're blogfriends with my blogfriend Lori as well. Small world!

Sometimes, I feel like I'm not very good company, also. Aloha Sue
