What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Everything I touch turns to shit.
I can ruin any good situation,
even the foolproof good things, I can screw those up.

I'm the master of my own sabotage,
never satisfied while there is still a glimmer of hope.
I will not rest until I have stamped it all out
Until there is nothing left to be happy about.

These are my skills. These are my talents.
But I can feel good because I am doing so well.
At this, at least.
It's the only special talent I have.
In every other aspect of my life, I am mediocre at best.

I have never had such a strong desire to throw myself off a bridge.

You are not allowed to throw yourself off a bridge, especially when you're in the midsts of convincing yourself of things which are simply not true. You're good at a lot of other things, like being a great friend and an excellent drinking buddy, and it makes me sad to hear you talking shit about my friend like this. Also, if you're feeling masochistic, you should just come up here and visit us so we can all make fun of you ;p What's going on? You OK? Call me if you want - 24/7.

also, do not stray towards the ocean. As Toad said, "Flesh becomes water, and wood becomes bone."

Stay on dry land, don't get lost at sea.

Your friends love you and don't see you often enough. Be proud that you inspire such love.

It was "they" who lost the form, not you.

Things that should be flung off a bridge:
1) The entire administrative staff of UCSD.
2) Any/all "works-in-progress" forms in existence.
3) That spooky high-pants guy who harrassed Miles.

You are not on this list! I repeat, YOU'RE NOT ON THE LIST!

Reasons why you should pull on a smile, besides the power of suggestion:

I like you.
I think you're hot.
I think you're witty (and pretty).
I think you're intelligent.
I think you've got your head on your shoulders.
I think you're one hell of a woman.

I know you're upset because you know you can do so much more, in every venue of life, and are, I speculate, sick of settling.
Don't worry. Your in a very 'Eeyore' place right now, just more pointed.
Just be Pooh, who just is - and very happy at it as well.

Give me a call, we'll talk about dessert.

There you are Peter!
