Stress and suckage

I woke up from stress dreams where I was back in college, doing a production that I had no idea what my lines were for, and couldn't find my costume because it was stuck in a blue suitcase lost in a pile of identical blue suitcases.

My stress dreams are never subtle, yo.

It set the tone for the rest of the day. I tried to escape it by going to an event tonight at the library, the last in a series of presentations done by local authors. I went to this one because the guy had a long history in SF theatre, but he was an odd duck, that was for sure. He was also half an hour late, which meant everything was rushed. It didn't do much for my mood, especially when I found out afterward that one of my friends who's going through a divorce is currently in the hospital because of how badly she's taking it all.

I really need to get out of this headspace that the world sucks. Even though it does. I saw a tweet today from some jerk who said, "Women need the boundaries of the Patriarchy and a mission in life which is usually a husband, children and home. Absent such structure they malfunction and destroy civilizations." I'm going to bet he's single.
