Dear oh dear. One of the reasons I don't watch morning TV - especially the commercial stations anyway, they're terrifying.

Also, I think he'd forgotten to put his front teeth in - plus he looked like he had a cigarette stub in his ear.

Roommate invites her boyfriend over, dirties the kitchen (without cleaning up), and then puts all her pots and pans into the dishwasher, knowing that I'll empty it for her tomorrow so she doesn't have to.

I'm going to start not emptying the dishwasher when she does this. I know she hates doing dishes and she relies on me to empty the dishwasher during the workweek because I get home first. I don't mind if it's dishes that get dirtied through normal use, but having to put away her pots and pans really irritates me.

It is the light she longs to find,
When she delights in learning more.
Her world is learning; it defines
The destiny shes reaching for

I'm through ordering pancakes at Crack Barrel!

They just can't get them right anymore. Either too burnt or too underdone.

Haha, she doesn't know. I hide it pretty well. I feel bad because I know she's a nice person and she has her own problems, but being responsible for all the cleaning has been getting to me now that it's gone on for so long.

What happens with roommates or family members living together is that the one with the lowest tolerance for filth does most of the cleaning. I've lived with some neat freaks who had a much lower tolerance than me. They did most of the cleaning. I've also lived with slobs and I was the only one vacuuming and sweeping the floors.

Some neat freaks are also control freaks and will attempt to get the messier ones to follow their OCD rules. Like they will leave passive-aggressive notes about leaving one dirty bowl in the sink. Or aggressive text messages about a dirty can in the sink. I've had both types.

The on the male TV presenter got me laughing when the man was being interviewed.

It is like the man being interviewed was having giggle too, in his own way.

Don't think can get a serious interview in Australia, as always some comedy thrown in.

There is one. She wrote the cleaning schedule. It's hanging on a whiteboard on the front door. The one I stick to but she ignores. She talked with me about doing more cleaning, and then gradually stopped following the schedule.

The reason I don't bother trying to talk with her about it is because she knows she doesn't clean, she just doesn't care about the mess and isn't bothered by how it's affecting me.

When she delights in learning more.

People that want to clean stuff constantly, do they not realise its only gonna get dirty again, its an exercise in futility, dust & dirt is the natural order of things : /






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Ugh. Dumb ACT app did a ****ing upgrade in the past year and now charging for subscriptions when I already paid full price years ago. And of course the developer mysteriously cannot be found to give me access again. Annoying. I really want to use the app, but damn if I'm paying $10 again. It's the ****ing principle.

Miles to go before I sleep. Vale.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Some people take power naps (10 minutes) after work which helps with energy levels.
