Talking to Myself



It's been one of those weeks. I avoid whining out loud, but I do have an inner whiner of sorts that I need to keep in check.

Whiny Namowal: Some week this has been! Nothing's working out. One disappointment after another! My life is a joke.
Stop That Namowal: Aw, the Big Baby didn't get her way! Maybe you should call 911 or book your horrible ordeal on Oprah. Wuss.

Oh I love this idea of the inner whiner. Sounds to me as if maybe too much overtime?

Maybe you need to do an inner whiner contest!

Hi Sally,
I like the idea of an inner whiner contest, (I'll have to find some cool prizes first.)

Catching up on your blog finally... I really like the quick sketches!

I don't have insight about cool prizes, but I hear cheese goes well with lots of things. ;-)

Hoping for a better rest-of-week for you!

Sorry to hear it's been a bad week. Hope it gets better. Sometimes I think if things go haywire maybe I'm being protected from something horrible that might have happened if things had worked out as I wished, and there's something better in store. Trouble is you can't tell at the time! I've been obsessing because I see old high school friends this weekend -- wondering where I took a wrong turn that kept me from being a rocket scientist.

Hi Ghost,
Thanks for dropping by and wishing for a better week.

Hi stray g,
Thanks for the reassurance. I'm sure things will improve. That's one of the reasons I talk back so harshly to my inner whiner, so she doesn't run the show.
Liked your "wrong turn that kept me from being a rocket scientist" comment. I hear ya.

It would be impossible for me to love this more. I got me one of those critters, too. Jeeeee-zus. They are such high maintenance!!!

Namowal said...

Boodababy,
Thanks for stopping by. Nothing like an inner whiner to drive ya crazy!

Why do I love Whiny Namowal so much better than Stop That Namowal?

Maybe if you have the inner whiner contest, we should enter under assumed names. Because everybody knows I'm the best whiner.

I'm so tired!

Namowal said...

Hi Linda,
I admit that Stop That Namowal is harsher than sharp cheese, but she keeps Whiner Namowal in check.
I think the Inner Whiner contest would really take off under assumed names! Imagine whining with immunity and impunity! Not sure how I'd give out the prizes... ...I'm thinking...
Stray g,
There's no "tired" in Rocket Science!

I don't think I would fare well in the Winer contest, I can't hold mah rum :3

Rocket science: No, but there is "exhausted" *knee*slap*
