Our can opener has been missing for a week and there's a can of some kinda chow mein dinner thing I wanna try but I don't wanna ruin a knife opening it and I don't wanna buy another can opener when we definitely still have one here somewhere.

I put the part of this weekend (my sister's wedding) that made me happy in the other thread. I figured I'd move the part that made me unhappy here. Though the incident with getting stuck in the mud didn't help at the time: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=880&start=400


What really got me is the suit. Basically I'm around 370 pounds, the suit rental place I went to didn't know how to deal with me, even going in three times to be fitted and refitted. I ended up racing to take a seat at the wedding hobbling in an ill-fitting suit. There have been lots of weddings and babies in my otherwise very normal to good-looking family lately and I didn't need the reminder of just how abnormal and freakish I am and how hopelessly far away I am from having the life that everybody else at the dinner table enjoys.

I'd been told that suits make big guys look good and help with the ladies. Not so in my case. I'm beyond even that.

When I limit myself to work and my bedroom, I'm happy. I can't be happy around my family anymore. Although I discovered at the wedding that alcohol really seems to help with that.

To quote the great wit Homer Simpson:

I went to go get a paper towel so that I could murder a spider on the wall behind my computer without touching it, and now it (the spider) is missing!

My beloved Spurs have played their final game at our current stadium. White Hart Lane - Our home since 1899. Went unbeaten at home as well. Bit teary right now...

I've never been there, never been to England, but I feel the same way. One of the things I'm not sure belongs in the happy or unhappy thread though.

Also happy the final table position has been sorted, no stressing over it for the last week of the season. And happy to see Swansea survive too.

The gorgeous stand straddling rainbow was a nice touch from which deity it might be attributed to (and is now my Facebook profile picture - move over 3 week old daughter). Classy

Love the photo - and Swansea's survival has been a two week long party for me :) It's more stressful being in a relegation battle but you do feel happier at the end than say, when you manage to secure 10th. The crowd is going to be over the moon next match.

It's an odd end to the season. Last week it was all super exciting with so many teams with important positions to play for, and now the Premiership is basically settled a week early.

It's a shame that Liverpool and Arsenal can't both miss out on CL qualification. :P

Would be fun if they had a playoff for the last spot though, which could happen if their matches end 0-2 and 1-1 respectively.

Smashed my thumb hard enough to split the nail and give myself a shaking crying panic attack and bleed all over. Supervisor had to drive me to our occupational healthcare place and then drive me home.

I don't know about unhappy, but I thought of looking up a channel's social media account, and cannot find it, found the facebook, but, even though I've been to the page I'm looking for previously, I cannot remember if it was Facebook, Twitter, or whatever...so make a Facebook account, get that done, look around, still cannot find what I am looking for, I think it's twitter I'm looking for, but cannot find the page, and I'm just feeling old, laughing at myself, and nearly shouting at the computer. I'm 32, I'm not that lost yet, but those stupid social medias, and kids these days with their walkmens, and the shoes with the wheels in them, and always huffing with the spray paint! Just some mild frustration.

EDIT: After that little breather, went back checked again and found the twitter page, it was what I was looking for, some sanity has been replenished.
