Aleister does a little dance all the time, he's just constantly kneading furniture. And he pulls Paige's shoes down off the shelf, drags them into the middle of the floor and cuddles them like they're teddy bears.

Ollie has a very definite "gimme milk" meow. She's trained Paige to give her milk every day when she comes home from work - it's the lactose-free cat milk from the pet shop and the other cats don't care for it, but Ollie loves it and demands it. Ollie also snores and it's adorable.

Luna likes being upside-down and spends a lot of time lying on her back with her little paws curled up and her belly in the air. She'll let you pet that belly but you've gotta watch her eyes for madness.

@VictorB: Don't worry about it, it's always nice hearing from the regulars, good to see you man.

Thanks for the good wishes. Ireland does indeed have a social welfare system for people who find themselves out of work, and there are a few chains of 1-2 around the place, though they're not great for groceries.

Paige and I are still together. There's a lot of pressure on us, but we're strong.

Sorry for not always replying. have been checking up on my phone, and, well, phones don't allow comments. Or reading your initial comments. How jack!

Anyways, I did want to touch base and say sorry to hear that you are out of work, wonder if you have employment insurance over there, wondering if you have dollar stores there, wonder if you still are with Paige, (like I said, First day back using a computer) and wonder if another bank will hire you?

One of the favorite qualities of my cat is that her "meow" is a cross between a squeaky toy and a door that needs oiled and that she is talkative. The only time I don't like it is when I am sleeping or trying to concentrate. One of her quirks is that she HAS to use the litterbox. If she runs outside and is out for a while, she gets STRAIGHT to the litterbox when she gets back in.

I like how cats are so quirky.

Oh that's so cute that you pet your kitty in your sleep!

I started drawing Neko's eyes like that years ago because my old cat Garfield did the Big Adorable Eyes thing all the time. She was just the sweetest purringest cat ever but that didn't mean she hadn't shit in the fruitbowl during the night :3

Yeah, now that I am feeling better, I have been drawing more.

For me, I have always been the kind of idiot that tries really hard to make people laugh.(I have gotten better at that, but not by much) For me, it was that I knew what it was like to be depressed sad, so I wanted to see others smile and laugh. So I think that another reason why so many comedians are depressed is because they know it sucks and how much a good laugh can help, and that is why they wanted to become comedians.

I'm an only child. My dad was busy working or with whatever my mom was making him do, and my mom slept a lot due to side effects of her medicine that she had to take.(Which I am thankful for) and when she was awake... ugh. But we had cats, and they probably showed me the most affection that I received in that part of my life. I like to think that I was raised by house cats. I think of cats more than just animals or cats because of that. In a way, feel like family to me and they make me feel more safe in a weird way.

My cat has me well trained. If my mom knew, she would be jealous. One time my dad saw me petting her in my sleep. Earlier today I was playing a game and I would occasionally and mindlessly pause it to pet her some. After my room finally got cleaned, she would occasionally walk in and aggressively squeak at me. I put a chair next to my computer chair, and now she sometimes sits in it and purrs.
I feel sorry for my mom's cat. Her cat that we normally call Mr. Kitty is like Neko though. It is funny, whenever Mr. Kitty does something to irritate her, right afterwards his pupils get big and he looks sad and more adorable.(that look was what got him adopted to begin with)

@Ciber: Lots of different arguments leading to the same conclusion, but yeah, they start to repeat after a while.

@Bea: Glad you're doing better. Someone I can't forgive is a big part of my demon too. I think it's hard to forgive people for being the way they are when they're not sorry for doing the things they've done.

I think there's a fairly common defense mechanism which makes people equate being sorry with being wrong. That if you're not sorry that means you didn't do anything wrong, and the person calling you on your behaviour is the asshole. It's self-defeating and leads to bigger and bigger assholes, but people are awfully susceptible to that kind of thing.

I know how hard it can be to let go of a grudge, I've been carrying a big one around for four years and know damn well I'd be happier and healthier if I let it go, let it go, I am one with the wind and sky.

Yeah I went there.

I think a lot of depression advice boils down to "do all the things you can't do because you're depressed, and you won't be depressed any more". It's all well-meaning, it's a way of expressing good wishes, but it's inherently absurd and the demon turns it into another layer of criticism.

Depression is an absurd condition. I think the reason so many comedians are depressed is because one of the condition's benefits is a heightened sense of absurdity. I think it's why people with depression love cats so much. They're such contradictory self-willed little creatures, I've written like a thousand comics on the subject so I won't elaborate here. Paige hateloves Aleister so damn hard though it's adorable.

I just realised part of my ball-of-ideas is an apologia to Paige on behalf of Aleister. I looked up 'apologia' to make sure I was using it correctly. I was, it's "a formal written defence of one's opinions or conduct." Which means an apology isn't the same thing as saying you're sorry, and there's no corollary idea for the concept of forgiveness.

Your mother may never say she's sorry. She might not even offer you an apology, but an apologia might help you and you can come up with it yourself.

I think helping people come up with apologia for stuff they're too angry about to defend is a service people charge for :P

I wish my mom was the kind of person that I should forgive. I am a naturally forgiving person(it takes too much effort and energy for me not to. XD) But I have to keep myself from forgiving her, because if I don't I know I will be putty in her hands. She is VERY manipulative.

She has been sending me letters(I read them just in case she says something that hints that she might drive 6 hours to stalk me or something.), and it makes it even more obvious that she doesn't care about how she has done. She came up with many theories as to why I don't talk to her. Of course, none of them really mentioned how terrible she has treated me, over the years or in general. The closest thing she got to that was something like "We just had a bad visit." That was SERIOUSLY down playing how bad that visit was. She TERRORIZED me. It was one of the worst visits that I can remember. And her theory that she has stuck with is that I am "mad at her" because my boyfriend and my best friend are "anti-mom" and I am getting their moms confused with her.(One doesn't have problems with her mother, and the other has very understandable problems with his mother) The day I last talked to her, she was trying to argue that she loved me. I told her that she never has. Before my parents divorced, and I had only eaten one meal that day, if I even said so much as "I'm hungry" she would go off on how lucky I am that she makes me food(as she was making food)and guilt trip me so much and so hard the entire time she was doing that. It was bad enough to where I would tell her that she could stop making me food, but she kept continuing like I didn't say anything. My mom's response to that was "Children and their parents should forget the disputes they have together." (The worst part for me about that response was not how hypocritical that was, but how the only reason I remembered that was because of flashbacks)

(Don't worry, I understood that you weren't telling me to forgive my mother. I was just explaining a bit of why I she shouldn't be forgiven, and I can go off a tangent complaining about her too easily because there is no shortage of material to complain about. Sorry if I complained too much. It is hard not to)

And for me, I am also bad at conversations because I am awkward and I don't have much interesting to talk about. If two people or more people are talking, I am afraid to say something because I might interrupt them and bother them. I have been getting better at talking to people now that I have been getting better in general. It is around the year anniversary when I started getting better and when I got together with my boyfriend. :D I am doing a lot better than how I was doing back then. I still have a loooong way to go though.

Would you describe your depression as a circle of negative thoughts that seem to lead into each other such that you end up thinking the same thing over and over?

@Vlad: Thanks Vlad, good to hear from you again.

Job hunting is horrible, it's having to prove your worth to strangers with your livelihood at stake. It's tough to do when you're wicked insecure, which is why I needed to talk it out with Paige. It's something we do for each other when we need it - I tell her all the nasty corrosive toxic shit I believe about myself, and she tells me that it's stupid.

We're working on my answers to stock interview questions now. Turns out all the accomplishments in my CV are true, but in person I play off doing 218 tasks in a single day on a workflow queue target of 40 tasks per employee per day - a figure arrived at by dividing the average output of the entire team (and was later revised down to 25 when I was loaned out to another unit for a couple of months) - as if that's something any idiot could do if their work was boring enough.

In short I've got to present myself as something worthwhile. While I've got quite a few very marketable skills, that's not one of them. I'm starting to think I might not be cut out for marketing, which is why I'm going for admin roles.
