[private, late Sunday morning]

I can't believe it's been a year.
Or that I forgot. I had to look up what the day was, exactly.

Anyway. I got a bunch of really stupid comedies from the video place, and piles of junk food, and I figure if we sit up all night maybe we can duck the nightmares just for once. Since they've been getting worse, and I don't think either of us have slept the night through in a month, and I'm to the point where I'll count staying up all night a success, if it just meant not waking up from him crying or screaming or something.

He was doing really good, but the closer the anniversary...

I don't think he's realized that I'm not spending so much time at work because I need to, but because I need the quiet there to be able to deal with him. And it's not that I don't want to. I'm just so tired, and it's just so hard to watch this.

I'm out of ideas. I just hope this is enough, for tonight. I don't know what else to do.

Next person that asks me, while I'm on the podium, about the Oscars? Gonna get a pencil right between the eyes. We're busy. Movies are not on the top of our to-do list. It's sad, but true. You want entertainment reporting, go find Sherri Wexler.

Although, since I'm off the podium, I will say this: if that cute young man who played Johnny Cash wins, I can honestly say I'd enjoy watching his acceptance speech.

Note left for Danny when Carol leaves for work this morning:

MJ --

I had to leave for work and I didn't want to wake you up. But -- I'm coming over for dinner, and I expect you to be awake. And I expect you to call me if anything happens during the day. And I'd expect I'd hope that you'd be honest with me about all that.

I can only be here for you if you let me.


PS -- You do realize the only reason I didn't slug you last night was that you were too drugged to defend yourself, right? -S

Dear Press Everyone:

Stop asking me about the State of the Union. You'll find out when the President presents it, just like everyone else. Go away and let me work.

Eff offYours sincerely,

A very fed-up Press Secretary.

So the holidays are over but I'm dragging anyway, because it goes from nice and warm to cold and nasty and no matter what it's dark. And it might have been a month since I had bronchitis but I'm still coughing, which is just nasty. Long story short? I really want a vacation.

But. That's not going to happen. Because I am busy. Still. I am nothing if not hopeful, so your job, whoever's reading this? Tell me where I should take a vacation. Because even if I can't go anywhere for a year, I can put brochures on my desk and daydream about it, right? So share. Tell me what's cool. If I like you enough I might even let you come. =)

Whoever gave me bronchitis is going to die.

Toby, find someone to do the briefings tomorrow. I'm not getting out of bed until the room stops spinning.

In case anybody missed it, I'd just like to reiterate.

It was a chunk of marble. It fell. The only forces at work were erosion and gravity. God was not sending a message to the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Lang, the Associate Justices, or President Bartlet. The next person who suggests otherwise will get a message in the form of my boot connecting to their posterior.

That being said. I have been playing a Christmas music net radio channel in the office. Can anyone explain to me when "Over the Rainbow" became a Christmas carol?

Added: Mannheim Steamroller's "Traditions of Christmas" has words? Since when? That's it. Back to the oldies station.

Things I Will Not Do Today:

-Say anything stupid
-Do anything stupid
-Speak angrily, snarkily, or in any other way that could be interpreted as rude. Especially to Hannah.
-Bail out. Because I am not a wus.
-Screw this up.

Why why why why WHY did I agree to this?

Forget about doing something stupid. My mere existence testifys to the vast amount of stupidity one person can cause.

Why the hell am I so nervous?

I am the single most stupid person ever to walk the earth.

Why didn't I just walk away from the computer?

What the hell is wrong with me?

Let's pretend like I never did that.

I think CJ's mad at me. She seemed...wierd...during lunch. I'm positive Alix is. She barely said two words to me all afternoon.

What were they talking about when I wasn't there?

God, I'm getting paranoid. Can I be any more pathetic? Soon I'm going to start talking to myself. Except... a locked journal entry pretty much is that, isn't it?
