I think VigilanteGirl is psychic or something.
I hadn't got two feet inside the door before she was all "What's wrong with you? You're such a grouch."
I never thought of myself as a person that wears their mood on their sleeve. I used to be told that my eyes would change color depending on my current state of anger, arousal, boredom, or whatever, but I was nowhere near close enough for anyone to tell me what color my eyes were.
So she must be psychic, because she was absolutely right.
I'm in a crappy mood.
There's no particular reason. I guess the bullshit's just been piling up, sort of like the snow, and it doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon, sort of like the snow.
I can feel that I'm closing myself off again, and I don't particularly like it, but I do understand it. I reach out and find nothing, so I stop reaching out. The next logical step is to prevent people from reaching out to me, so I start rebuilding the castle walls.
And if that doesn't work maybe I'll put in a sniper tower or something.
Or maybe I just need a real vacation where I'm not stuck at home listening to the snow pulling my gutters loose.
