Building on Solstice's Bowel headline, I guess it's time for me to out myself. I have totally been in the dumps this week.

My stoopid neck pain is acting up again and my stomach is a mess. Classic signs of stress and burnout. It's sad really... As a result, I am lethargic, miserable and cantakerous. I've missed out on a number of film fest parties and I know those vacant celebrities are really disappointed that I was not there to gawk and worship with the rest of them.

Oh well. It's making life very difficult though. Once you face a couple of challenges, it's hard to stay perky and positive. Motivating yourself is a real struggle when you feel like crap. Tough to get out of bed, to focus on the tasks at hand, to care...

Then I read the news and I suddenly feel like a total asshole. Bombings in Iraq, destruction in New Orleans and I am whining about my stomach upset?

I know my suffering will end in a few days, and I'll be right back to being my bouncy overly enthusiastic doing too much all at once, self. Until then though, I'll be channel surfing and sipping minty tea.
