    There was a time I had bipolar disorder, had dyslexia, and had synsthesia. That was back when I was on ADhD medication. It went away when i got off. I think all of it. The sad thing is, I miss it a lot. I think about it all the time. I know it's stupid, but they defined me, and in a way, it was nice to see the world in my own way. Now it sort of feels like the world is everyone else's, and I just share it. I still haven't told anyone it went away. I still pretend like it's my world I'm seeing.

    Perhaps even worse, I secretly want something terrible to happen. I want pain and catastrophe to strike me and those around me, because I can take the pain just fine. If there were a robber and I were in the bank, I could do something heroic. I don't know if I would, but I always wish I had the chance. I could be a hero, if I managed to choke out the armed assailant. I can't be a hero on math problem #3 though. It's not the same. Life is just sort of pointless without a heroic conflict.

    I know it doesn't seem like it but I actually love when extroverts bombard me in public/social settings with an introduction and over-done small talk. It allows for surprise on both sides and gives me permission to be myself (which might mean blowing the lid off that small-talk crap).

    Seriously though, I love it. Extroverts come at me!

    I had a friend who flirted like that. I always thought it was funny.

    It's probably because my parents don't drink coffee. My dad drinks Coke for breakfast. He used to be a Pepsi guy, but when soda manufacturers switched to corn syrup he didn't like Pepsi anymore and went to Coke. He's kind of a soda connoisseur. And yet he's really thin. And he's also pretty knowledgeable about candy. His rule of thumb for chocolate is that the grams of fat and grams of sugar per serving should be roughly the same, that way you know it won't be too sugary or too bitter.

    I think the most valuable lesson I've learned in my life so far is not to push too hard for something I think I want, and not to be sad if it eludes me anyway. Aside from the whole 'not meant for you' thing, it usually turns out I didn't at all want them half as much as I imagined I did.

    @ all that for your dad and one sentence for your mom. What type is your dad? Interesting that he knows so much about candy and soda.

    I could never have soda with breakfast. Feels wrong to me...

    So I guess my confession is that even though I tell myself I'm not a snobbish jerk, that's only because I restrain myself when my true colors are about to shine through.

    That's interesting. And it is a hell of a lot better than instant coffee -- plus it's quick and simple and convenient.

    Too bad it's incredibly weak.

    depends on the brand you use, and if you get the reusable k cups it's stronger and always do the smallest cup on the machine, even if you have to press it several times
