I just wrote, posted, and deleted an entry whose main tone sounded like this: "YARRRRG!"

I had worked up the energy to sound annoyed at something, but it didn't last when I wasn't working at it. Really I'm not annoyed. I'm tired and extremely sad about a variety of things, some of international importance and some extremely local. And leaving a post up with wry energetic annoyance just didn't seem like the thing. Felt contrived, and the thought of leaving it up to deal with responses in the same tone made me even more sad and tired.

Are you staying hydrated? Maybe you should get a glass of water. Maybe I should get a glass of water, too. We'll all get a nice refreshing beverage and drink it and maybe feel obscurely better, because we will still be sad and tired, but we will not be sad, tired, and dehydrated. Okay? Is it a deal? "Get some fluids in you" is occasionally bad advice, but not really very often, and it's what I've got right now, and you start with what you've got and go from there.
