The 57th Day

Tom Reagan: "If you want me to keep my mouth shut, it'll cost you some dough...I figure a thousand bucks is reasonable. So I want two thousand."

Miller's Crossing
, written by the Joel and Ethan Coen

I haven't got much of an appetite again today. I just feel kind o' mellow.

Therefore, my favorite films shall speak for me or against me ...

vadim1972Hang in there! I too feel a bi under the weather lately. Its freezing here in NY and I am kind of bored out of mind. And I cant seem to find any meaningful relationship for the longest time. But..... Screw sadness, I am entertaining myself tonight! I decided to surprise my frineds by crushing their house without any invitation. They might be angry, but hey misery loves company, lol!

Hey Harry! Mellow is good, peaceful, nice. Enjoy it until it passes.
I wrote down the movie you pictured there. I'm always excited to find out there are GREAT movies out there that I haven't even seen!

LOL Harry,
You and I must like the same kinds of films. of' Course I do also like a good chick flick once in awhile.

Hey, being mellow is a good thing right? I know it still feels like your in a funk, but at least your not on the bottom. So your moving on up my friend. Hope your mood improves today.

Are you sleeping? I know that is part of my problem. Have you ever tried Melatonin? I don't take it often as I'm scared of being dependent on it. (even though they say your body naturally makes it) But I have taken it on occasion. I think sometimes it helps. Mostly for me it makes me tired and wanting sleep, it doesn't actually make me stay asleep. (make sense?)

Anyway, hope your doing better. And I want to thank you for your unwavering support.

Howdy, Lynn.

Mellow and sad is better than sad and agitated, I suppose. :)

If you see Miller's Crossing, I sure hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for all your kindness and support.

Howdy, Jo.

I haven't been sleeping very well, for awhile now.

I used to take an OTC (over the counter) sleeping pill prior to retiring each night. I stopped doing that around the time I seriously took an LC diet back up (about two months ago).

I have the same concern about melatonin as you do - forming a dependence on it. But, I do feel it's a much better way to go vs. synthetic "sleeping pills".

I really think I need to start exercising regularly and managing my stress better. My hunch is that that will help my sleep.

Now, if I would just do that! I find it's hard to fit everything into a day. I'm working on doing better in that regard.

I sure hope today was a better day for you too. I know it's been pretty rough lately.

Thank you for your support as well. It really helps. :)

You've got great taste in movies, by the way. ;-)
