what's it going to take?

it seems no matter where i turn lately there is an overall cloud hanging over everyone. blogs seem to be quieting down and when people do blog there's so much stress and...not sadness but just a feeling, vanilla. no joy. no excitement. it's the same with most people i talk to face to face as well. are we all waiting for the sky to fall? are we all so stressed about the possibility/probability of the economy getting worse? i don't know.

what i do know is that even if the sky falls and your worst case scenario happens (losing jobs, houses, becoming destitute, etc.--yes, these are things that live in that dark corner of my brain) i won't lose my friends and family. could the hubs or i lose our jobs this coming year? sure, nothing is guaranteed. this thought worries me, but the most important things in my life can't be taken from me.

i don't even know what i'm trying to say here other than i hate this cloud of melancholy or depression or worry or stress that's hanging over everyone and i just like to share this cup of coffee w/ you instead.

That made me laugh! Which is what we all need to do. And you're right, the most important things can't be taken from us. I am trying to keep it all in perspective- thank you for reminding me of that and letting me vent too!

i guess there is a general sense of things being off kilter. but you gotta stop dissin' on the vanilla, some of us like that flava ;)

first and foremost i protest the use of vanilla in the context in whch you are using it.
ok. i got that off my chest.
oh. and the economy sucks. and its definitely playing on people decisions even if only in small ways.
and i'll see your cuppa joe and raise you an eggnog.

bea--you deserved a good laugh w/ all you're going through! and i love that you have those precious babies in your pic : )

broad and just--you two can vanilla it up on YOUR blogs ; ) for me vanilla is boring, i like it but it's boring. i realize others may have a different desire and that's what makes it great--leaves more chocolate for moi!

just--i totally love eggnog! YUM

what about cherry? or strawberry?

shere--holy crap. you too?? in the equation neopolitan ice cream=life chocolate is my fave, vanilla is eh, boring and strawberry is my least fave. cherry is ok once in a while. i also like lemon ice cream (not sherbet, but ice cream) anything chocolate or coffee flavored beats out any other flavors.

You are so, so right. In an effort to be more Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, I will perform a striptease on my blog today.

OK, not really. But that would sure stir things up, wouldn't it!??!

astarte--think of how much traffic you'd get if you did a striptease! LOL i heart than you're being chocolate AND peanut butter, because really, it can't get any better than that.
