Total Eclipse of my Patience

And you feel that you've had quite enough...

Oh Monty Python, you always know just how I feel.

Lately I’ve been having a major problem with patience. My boss, and cast, and “friends”, and health, and living situation, and love, and…well, what else is there? It’s all testing my sanity. I keep writing BE CALM and PATIENCE on whatever papers are in front of me at the time. I try not to snap at my boss for talking to me like I’m a child with a severe learning disorder. I attempt to take solace in the fact that it isn’t me, he does it to everyone but that isn’t working this week. I try not to make stabbing gestures toward the people in my cast that won’t sit down and shut the F^%& UP while we are working. The darling little children in the cast that need a severe beating have me gripping my script and clenching my teeth for fear I will snap and scare the ever loving shit out of them. Everything seems to be grating at my nerves. This leads me to believe it’s me not them. As hard as that is to comprehend.

So what is going on? Why am I so much more stabby than usual? Why does everyone suck so much more this week?

Wait, let’s look outside of yourself for a second Knight. Why is there so much crazy going on with everyone else? So many friends keep confiding in me with terrible news of death, illness, divorce, moving away, etc. What is going on?

I guess it’s just the ebb and flow of life.

Or could it be?

Solar Eclipse - June 1, 2011

Lunar Eclipse - June 15, 2011

Solar Eclipse – July 1, 2011

Three eclipses in six weeks? Well, holy hell. Three eclipses and a full moon will drive us all mad. That's if you follow astrology at all. I’m going to go ahead and blame it all on the stars. Why not? It's somehow comforting to know that this too shall pass and life will go on as it always does and always has. You've just got to remember... that you're standing on a planet that's evolving....

Can we have your liver then?

This would explain why it was SOOOOO extremely dark during part of the storm that knocked out our power on June 15.

You can have part of the liver, but I still need some of it.

Maybe you just are on a giant period and having super giant PMS times?

I hear that happens, like lunar eclipses. Rare but you know.

I say yell at the little buggers, it will probably do them (or you at least) a world of good! Besides, it saves having to hide the bodies once you do snap ;)

Oh it's the kids. Kids are so freaking annoying.

Anyway, as long as it isn't me, then I say when you narrow down who it is that's causing all the problems, just kick him in the balls repeatedly until you feel better.

Great posting Knight!

My Gods name is Monty Python too!

Knight said...

Joshua- Well, yes that would explain it. I appreciate that you will share your liver with me. If you ever need a chunk let me know... But I should warn you mine probably doesn't work.

Mike- I've never had PMS so I supposed it's possible. It's been building up for years!

Reb- You are right. I should yell at them. Although I hear dumping bodies in the Hudson is an easy way to go.

Jack- See?! Pass the vodka please.

Jay- Will you please come kick people in the balls for me? I've been doing it all weekend and my legs are tired.

Gary- Sigh. You are such a tease.

Micky- Ha! Thanks. He is a wise God. So Absolutly huge! Gosh, we're all really impressed down here I can tell you.
