    I'm about >< this close to becoming a card-carrying pessimist.

    I want snow. It's supposed to snow. It never snows.

    I want the Seahawks to win. They ALMOST win...they never 'win'.

    Same for mariners or sonics.

    I'm extremely tired of being let-down.

    My mom.
    My wife.
    The Weather.
    'My' Teams.

    I'm tired of hoping things will change, then realizing things never do. People will always let you down, despite one or two glimpses of hope throughout the year. No Seattle Team will succeed in 'dominating' any single sport for more than one year. The weather will always do what i LEAST want it do. Liberals and Democrats will ALWAYS find a way to convinced a soul-less, mindless public that 'speed kills' or 'it's about a woman's right to choose' or 'we need to re-distribute the money of the wealthy, to the have-nots'.

    :(

    I'd submit my application to the NorthWest Pessimists club, but I doubt they'd approve it.


    It seems too long since things 'went my way' for more than one or two things...ya know?
    :(

    Sounds like pessimism to me. Try to be more optimistic, they'll probably accept your application!

    Don't feel bad you got it better then most, for instance. Somehow I owe the courts money, yet I can't join the military until its paid off. Don't you think I could pay it off if I was in the military. The world is BS a convict can join the military to pay off his debt to soceity, but a person cant join if he owes the state some money it's all a bunch of BS. I fu**ing hate the system. Its all crap!

    Life's too short to be pessimistic about. All a pessimist is is someone who focuses only on the bad things in life. Yeah, life is full of let-downs, and lots of bad stuff, but, hey, that's life. Life is a series of moments, some good some bad, and it's important to know that no matter how many bad moments you've had, a good one is on its way.

    Ok. Yelling here.

    1) It's snow - who gives a crap? If you want snow, move.

    2) Seahawks? It's a game - life as you know it will not change if they win, or lose. Pick a different team. :)

    How, precisely, are you being "let down"? You have an absolutely gorgeous wife who you *sound* like you love to death, two kids that look exceptionally well taken care of, healthy, and happy, and you think some stinkin weather and/or sports teams are going to make your life better than that somehow???

    AHHHHHHH! I know people who would kill for what you *seem* to have.

    So, is everything you display here a front, or what? Are you really that miserable, and do you really have good reason to turn in to a pessimist?

    Shall I take my soapbox with me, whilst I exit in a hurry? :)

    Smile. Life as you know it could be much, much, MUCH worse.
