"Like I told you last night, she's been herself lately," said Nanny...

"You mean she's not been herself, don't you?" said Agnes.

"I knows exactly what I means, girl. When she's herself she sulks and snaps at people and makes herself depressed. Aint you ever heard of taking people out of themselves?"
I didn't know this was what it was called until yesterday. Yes. I've been myself lately, too.

And I do love being taken out of myself, but I don't know how to do it.

I rather like that too. It sometimes feels like my entire life is a series of attempts to distract myself from thinking about my life.

What it reminds me of is Douglas Adams' description of how to fly - you start falling, get distracted at a crucial moment and forget to hit the ground. I've been failing to get distracted a lot lately.

If you give me a shout, I'll try to catch you. :)

I'm so glad to hear it. Knowing you adds a lot to my life, so it's good to be able to do do something in return.

Getting out of oneself is incredibly difficult, isn't it? Sometimes when I'm laying awake at night, I think it would be aces to have an out of body experience, and imagine myself floating over my body laying on the bed. Then I become floaty-self and say to anxious, panicky, wide-awake, sad self "Later, dude!" and then fly off to a desert island to chill for a bit. But that's not possible in real life, is it? Real life sucks. My version would be so much more awesome, they should have given me the job, but I suspect my application letter ended up in the bin, like all the drawings I sent to Take Hart in an attempt to get on published in The Gallery.
