T - I - Double Guh - Er!

That Tigger is a very bouncy fella.

I like to think I am part Tigger at times...those times when I'm not all pre-menstrual, peri-menapausal and mid-life crisis-y.  Those times when i'm not all "woe is me", "life is hard" all said with a Scarlet O'Hara type hand motion to my forehead, all dramatic like.

I do have an inner Tigger that likes to spring forth and bounce periodically.  I wish I was Tigger-licious all the time, but I think that would be exhausting (for both me and everyone around me).  But it does feel extraordinarily invigorating to get my 'bounce' on after coming through the grungy dark period of the past few weeks.

One is the lonliest number

With so many people in the world, how is it one can find themself feeling so lonely?

We're a planet comprised of 7 billion people. How is it then that I sometimes feel so alone? And if feeling lonely was't bad enough, throw into that mix the fact that i feel like a foreigner in my own land.  Have you ever had one of those days  where you feel like you are speaking a language so alien that even men from Mars and Women from Venus can't understand you? I have recently read that that whole Mars/Venus thing has been scientifically proven as boloney...we're just different. Well duh!  Do you ever have one of those moments the minute you open your mouth, you feel people are instantly tuning out and hearing only "blah, blah, blah" instead?
