Amy Winehouse Wednesday

Hey guys, I feel like I need to level with you. You all have One of you has probably noticed my sporadic, at best, attempts at blogging lately. The truth is, I've been grappling with some pretty tough "issues" that consume most of my time. It probably started in earnest about last January and has dominated my waking life since, crescendoing into what I'm about to tell you. In confidence, of course. They say you have to hit rock bottom before you realize you want help, and I finally hit that bottom harder than the Dow yesterday. It wasn't pretty, but I'm ready to take my first steps down the road to recovery. That's right. I'm going to rehab.

It started off innocently enough. I'd spend a little bit of time here. Then a minute or two here, you know, just to try it out. Before long, as the spring progressed, I'd take a little of this, just to keep up with everything. Summer came and went in a blur of this, these and that. Things get kind of hazy come September - I couldn't tell if I was coming or going, just that I wanted more. By October, I would do anything to get it anywhere. Even here.

It's going to be tough, but I think with professional help I can get through this. At least I can expect to be relapse free until 2010.

Arggh! I was only hitting about half of those sites until now. Now I'll waste even more time at work. Thanks Blythe.

Also, if my interpretation of the election map on NYTimes is correct, I think Oklahoma is the only state in the union that had every county go for McCain (with the exception of Alaska, which only has one county apparently).

You just do what it takes to get better, Blythe. They can do incredible things for wonkiness these days. All our thoughts and prayers are with you. Really. And you don't want to be one of those old ladies who is crushed to death under a collapsed pile of her half-read Economists.

Hey Blythey - I don't know you except from your posts but I think you're pretty special and pretty intelligent too. So, Miss Smartypants, when it all clears up I want to know more about the tales of a 27 year old. Been there,done that and made it too, as you will too; as you will too.
