Bad, bad mood

I've been in a bitchy mood all day.

I've been in a bad mood all week.

I feel like Calvin (of Bill Watterson's comic strip, "Calvin and Hobbes").

It was only the best comic strip ever.

Anyway, there was one where a disgruntled Calvin, stomping around with a big frown screwed onto his face, says, "Boy, I'm in a bad mood today! Everyone had better steer clear of me!"

Screwing his face up even more, Calvin says, "I hate everybody! As far as I'm concerned, everyone on the planet can just drop dead. People are scum."

Calvin stands, his hands crossed over his chest, glaring, waiting for a reaction.

"WELL-L-L-L? Doesn't anyone want to cheer me up????" he says, after a moment.

I know just how he feels.

Can I get a virtual hug, please? Sometimes when we need it the most is when we act like it the least.

Thank you.

If hugs from a basic stranger (who is however an Episcopalian in the best sense of the word) will help, please consider your self hugged.

Hugs and prayers, Pat. I have a basic golden retriever personality, and could hug all day long.

Hope things will go better for you. Remember, and I need to remind myself, God is in control.

There, grouchy Pat. Sixteen hugs. Is that enough? I felt I had to do more, because the cold Englishman, won't give hugs.

((((((Pat))))))) My partner quotes me from some childhood book, "It was a very bad, no good day - even in Australia." So hugs to you, and prayers for a better tomorrow.

Hugs from Wyoming where it is 5 degrees below zero F.

{{{{{{{{{{Hugs}}}}}}}}}}} for you!

Here's a hug, a glass of wine, and a box of delicious chocolates that do NOT make you gain weight (I think they even clean your house when you aren't looking!)

Oh, thank you thank you thank you thank you.

I've been feeling the hugs all evening.

And I went to my friends Michelle and Ken's house, too, where they fed me wine, bar-b-que chicken and friendship..

Your hugs make me feel so much better.
{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} back at ya!

Big big hugs to you, my dear!

I'm a bit late to this party but I do want to give you hugs as well even if you don't need them anymore!


Hope you're feeling much better since your "bad mood" post.
