still awake during day, agh

my head hurts. so, so much. i take this as merely a symptom of the daywalking.

i spend alot of time at work making sure i sound, at least, as though i know what i am talking about. i have to be careful not to convince myself, sometimes, that i actually know. ah, the many little lies we tell ourselves to get through the day. [there are SO many more i am thinking of right now... some are just harmless confidence builders. some have been dangerous and self-serving. but i can't type about it now...]

what little lies do you tell yourself?

So long as you're not involved with the head of Baphomet or something, you are probably doing okay... :)

That I don't really mind have my lunch irradiated by x-rays every work day.

That I don't really mind walking through a metal detector every work day.

That I don't mind having some police academy reject violate my personal space with a hand-held metal detector wand every work day.

That I don't really wish to take a tire iron to the x-ray machine, the metal detector, the hand-held wand, or the skull of the yahoo who holds the wand.

We're the United States government. We're here to help you.

oh yeah: "if i don't pay out my bills today, it won't be a big deal."

That I really like having nothing but yogurt and fruit for lunch, because it's so healthy.

Or, when that fails, that I can afford to go out to lunch today, because otherwise I will go mad. =)

As long as I like my coworkers and am stable, it doesn't matter if I'm not happy with my job. I should just stay where I am. That's the ticket.

I'll go back to grad school. Yeah. Just as soon as I get that application done. Hmm, when's the deadline? Oh, doesn't matter, there's plenty of time.

That sounds all too familiar...

'i'm not all that girly.'
Oct. 27th, 2003 03:06 am (UTC)

Funny, I did one like this a few months ago. When you see so many people around you in denial, it becomes evident that we all must do it on some level.

I tell myself that I'm in decent shape. Although I'm 40 pounds heavier then I was when I was 24. Its all muscle, right? ;<)
Oct. 27th, 2003 03:17 am (UTC)
Ugh... I can no longer make that particular lie to myself. The lie I make is that I am comfortable being out of shape because I'm just not one of those active people. But I'm really not. Really really not.

I can ignore my health problems, they will go away on their own.

And hey, same with my finances!
Oct. 27th, 2003 03:17 am (UTC)
I know both of those lies very intimately!
Oct. 24th, 2003 09:17 am (UTC)
My eyebrows aren't really that big.
Oct. 27th, 2003 03:18 am (UTC)
I don't remember being particluarly impressed by your eyebrows as being overlarge when we met.
Oct. 24th, 2003 12:50 pm (UTC)
That I am OK working as many hours I as I do, for as little pay as I get, because someday, it will all pay off.

Err... size doesn't matter, its what you do with it?

Oct. 27th, 2003 03:22 am (UTC)
I um... erm... different sizes match different people, is the conclusion I have come to on that count. I hate to see any of my male friends anxious about that topic, because really in the end what you're saying isn't a lie. Ahem. Heh. No more details available on that one right now! ;)

I'll DIE if I don't own this.

It isn't really fattening.

Maybe no one saw me pick my wedgie.

I swear I will do it tomorrow. (That is my favorite)

Oct. 27th, 2003 03:23 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, I have the same or similar ones:

"I won't find another one again so I have to buy this one now!"

"If I just have this fattening thing, I won't eat anything else fattening all day."
Oct. 31st, 2003 10:23 am (UTC)
I swear I will do it tomorrow. (That is my favorite)

Oh, mine too. *sigh* "It's okay that I'm slacking today, I'll just work REALLY hard tomorrow."
