And I'm back.

Many of you (or possibly none of you) may have been wondering where I've been. Allow me to fill you in briefly.

For the past month and a half or so, I've just been ... not well. In a bad place, mentally. It started, like so many of my favourite breakdowns have, with a notion. A notion that quickly spread into a full-blown crisis. OCD-erific. Because of that, it definitely felt like I was on the edge of losing it completely. I'm probably over-exaggerating, but that's what it felt like.

So that being said ... the typical effect on my life was not wanting to go out or communicate with anyone in my circle. The last thing I wanted to do was fake it and pretend that I was fine when I wasn't. So I basically went to work and came home. The monotony of adulthood is anything but conducive to mental collapse. Who knew?

So, in an ever present of fit of cliche, I decided to go see a shrink. A real one. Not some prat with a stupid moustache, an accent I can't place, and an annoying long thumbnail who;ll give me good (read: great) drugs. So yeah. Did that. Really fucking awesome. Whoever says it doesn't do any good is either lying or a Jedi.

So now I'm slowly climbing out of the hole. Not 100% yet but definitely getting there. So now you know.

In other news, I have no idea what I'm doing with my life.

But it's Friday. And I have the Pokemon theme in my head. And the weather is beautiful.

So I'm stuck in the city and all my old friends either don't care about me or are in jail/rehab for drugs.

Pete is my only human contact.

Near Columbus Circle for a while, two blocks off the south corner of central park west. Where are you?

Holy shit.

I don't know if I told you this or not. But I definitely saw you on the 6 train heading uptown. I was on the opposite platform. I had nothing to throw at the window to get your attention. IT WAS SO IRRITATING.

Anyway ... I'm in Brooklyn. Jefferson Ave. stop on the L. (516) 503 - 3957.

Call me. I have no friends and I know you don't either. No one loves like I do. Fucker.

Hope all is well.
