Gandhi had a lot of rage.  
Do you ever find yourself irritated by the way a person stands? I'm sitting in my mother's house, watching television with my family, and suddenly I find myself burning with anger and frustration from the very pit of my being, because of the way my brother was standing.

It seemed like it was emblematic somehow of everything that he does that annoys me, it seemed like he was standing in a way meant to provoke, it seemed like he'd crossed his arms just so because that's how my father crosses his arms, it seemed like he was standing where he was in relation to me in order to show how much shorter I am, it seemed like a scene from Kill Bill with the red vision and the siren-y music, it seemed like I was going crazy.

I am really not a calm person. I get irritated easily, but it usually blows over pretty quickly. I have not been quite this easily irritated since I as fifteen and horrible.

Hypothesis: My family does not, in any way, contribute positively to my behavior.

Evidence: Homicidal rage caused by proximity to family.

Conclusion: I best be gettin' myself back up North, and right quick.
Current Mood: embarrassedembarrassed
Current Music: Silence, blessed, blessed silence.

This is a rage issue I can relate to, I hate the way my ex-husband stands. It grates on my nerves everytime I see him. Just another reason never to be in a room with him.

I know this is not heplful at all, but I'm glad to know this is a rage I share.

Fool proof method for dealing with family:
1) Move away. Far away.
2) Keep phone calls short.
3) Go to other people's houses for holidays.
4) Stand next to someone shorter than you until you feel tall (I volunteer)
5) Get a big hat.
6) Consider becoming Canadian...oops, no, that's another prescription.

I'm spending the long weekend with my parents and giogio. giogio is, of course, lovely. My parents, however, alternate between sweetly reminiscent and OHMYGODI'MGOINGTOKILLYOUNOW!!!!!

So. I understand completely. :)

And, of course, that last message was from me, not giogio, who apparently didn't sign out last night. Brat.
