    Bad news: life still blows

    Welp, what part of life blows?

    My little side, already diminished, I’d now bring crushed mercilessly. That and everything else related to home ownership, being the breadwinner, running a family, working from said home, and worrying about my job.

    Oh and a divorce. And trying to sell a house in this economy.
    Slices of red apple + ketchup = tasty.

    Go ahead: come at me. This is a hill I will die on.
    I hate being stocky. I'm not obese, but I'm never going to be thin. Even when I dropped 65 pounds from depression and got down to 155, everyone thought I just looked sick. I can build muscle crazy easy; the downside is even when I'm running regularly, I build muscle there, too! I just want to be one of those small, endlessly thin guys.

    I'm sure there are plenty of super skinny guys that wish they could bulk up as easily as you. Unfortunately genetics have gotten in the way. At best I can say embrace who you are. Without doing a lot of super unhealthy things it is likely just not in the cards for you. :(

    I've lost a lot of weight too, but I'm so angular now that my diaper won't stay up on it's own unless I'm wearing boxer briefs over them. So being too thin when you have to wear diapers is not fun.

    I would die for more muscles. I’m on the thin side, and I am proud to say I have a little bit of muscle and little to no fat. I’m 6’3 and approx 185 lbs.
    I don’t care if I have to wear a damn bubble to go to a restaurant: I’m so sick of this nationwide house arrest.
    I’m getting to the point where I just want resolution with regards to this virus insanity. If we’re going to be dragged into a depression, let’s just get started on it. It’s this Purgatory-like state I despise.
    I love Cold War-related history... Were you alive when the Berlin Wall fell? Do you recall much?
    Hi onecho, I took this over from GermanDL's intro because I didn't want to capture his thread.
    I'm another german DL, and I was 16 in 1989. Although I didn't witness that particular night personally but only on TV, I was in Berlin a few days later when the "wallpeckers" ran their business.

    Neat. :) I hear the party lasted for days in Berlin. Amazing time in history.

    It was. And it was somewhat bizarre when the party had subsided, life went on, but instead of VoPos (Volkspolizisten, i.e. "people's police" of the GDR) preventing their own people from escaping, there were policemen from the FRG guarding the wall from wallpeckers - that was before they decided to take it down completely.

    Personally, I would have kept some colorful part near the city centre as a memorial. There is a dull grey fragment standing around somewhere in the suburbs that just isn't visible enough imo.

    A properly done lobster roll is one of the most delicious things on Earth. I don't think I could ever live on the East Coast; I'm too much of a Westerner. If a lobster roll was delivered to my theoretical office in Boston at lunch every day, I could make it.
    Depression isn't measured by the depth of your own misery; it's reflected in the anxiety and apprehension of those around you.
    Love is the greatest weapon of mass destruction for the simple reason that someone will willingly turn it on themselves and seal their own fate without any hesitation; the other party doesn’t need to lift a finger.
    Adult love is nothing but fleeting promise and lurking anguish. Undoubtedly, it is either conditional and toothless - crumbling at the smallest tremor - or it truly is genuine, lasting until one watches the keeper of their soul slip from their mortal coil and leave them to be.
    Given that we have the topic of padding well-covered, I’ll often go the other direction and provide something completely outside the realm for your consideration. You’ve been warned.

    Food takes:
    1. Pickles are gross
    2. Peanut butter should be peanuts and salt. That’s it.
    3. Ranch should be runny and very cold
    4. Indian > Thai
    5. Pico de Gallo > Salsa
    6. Figs on a pizza are tasty
    7. Sourdough is the best bread

    Cashews are delicious on pizza. True.

    For the sake of civility, I’ll pretend you didn’t say that about ranch.

    Fair 'nuff. Half the dressing in this town's store is ranch, different varieties. I may be 'Russian' to judgment, so I better rejoin my daughter before I 'caesar' pick out any other dressing. We now return you to James Garner in The Roquefort Files. 🤭

    I love sourdough bread.
    In response to my prior status, life is really miserable at the moment. On top of the crap happening around us all, I’m going through a divorce and trying to sell a house at the same time. When you’re already on four meds for anxiety and bipolar II, and you get these headwinds, all you can pray for is an end to the slide, one way or the other. Either it gets better or it doesn’t matter. It’s the limbo I can’t stand.
