I need to get this out and Mark is upstairs to get a book, so quick asldkjfklasdf steam-be-gone post.

Mark, I love you to death and I don't regret saving you a computer because it would have taken you a while to find a free one if I hadn't, but please, stop talking to me! Neither of us can work when you do, as I told you! And you were the one who complained to me that your friends dragged you away to 'work' but then just talked in the computer lab for an hour before leaving! Don't be that guy, Mark. And though your singing is lovely, please stop singing as you work; it's incredibly distracting. I have trouble believing you'd be behaving this way if a complete randomer were sitting next to you.

I love you dearly. But work time? Work time is work time. Not rant-at-the-friend-next-to-me-about-politics-or-other-friends. Work. W-o-r-k work. Perhaps you have time to faff around before your deadline on the 26th, but I really really don't before mine this Thursday.

AAAAH I AM SUCH A CRANKY CROCUS LATELY! alskdjfklasdjf Cetus lapetus. In the library until 11pm again, then I'm off home to prepare notes/practise once for tomorrow's presentation, and after the presentation tomorrow I'll be working for about 24 hours straight and right through the night.

*Tears hair out.* *Flails.*

I really, really want to primal scream. I wish there was a primal scream society on campus. Unfortunately, if I go and primal scream somewhere without it being arranged (and doing it alone), someone's going to go and think there's a girl in trouble.

Which I am. Just not trouble like that.

It might not be much help, but would a Bear screaming in the forest help you in any way?
I give good scream.

Bears screaming in forests are always helpful. (: I love the idea of a primal Bear Scream!

(I'd like to head out into the forest and give a good scream too. I don't think Kiwis are much known for our screams, but we do have a rather effective screech. :B

Feel free to scream on LJ. We could do a community-scream if you like.

I am still laughing over the idea of a community-scream. A primal scream LJ community, for the whinges that require all caps or *headdesk* icons. Hah! (And I'm sure it would be used far too frequently.)

You should tell him he's being distracting. He seems to need to hear it.

Ooooh believe me, I have come to that conclusion many times before. And told him a few times today. He just doesn't seem to know how much noise can come out of his mouth! I mean, he talks to himself, which is one thing, but he generally doesn't talk to himself around other people because suddenly he's talking to the other person...which is me. And I don't have time for that but he expects some sort of response, even when I tell him I'm busy and have very limited breaks.

He has definitely been told he's distracting by everyone in my household a number of times, including myself. We try to remind him occasionally but that mouth of his... :P I think in junior high I used to call it a "motor mouth." Mark has a motor mouth. But he really is lovely when one is NOT trying to work!

Primal scream into a pillow?

What I do when I want to primal scream is put on stompy boots and go for a stompy walk, preferably in the cold. It's a thirty-minute sanity fix. If you have headphones with you, you could plug into music, too.

Good luck!

I have definitely primal screamed into a pillow fairly regularly lately - but it doesn't have the same effect of hearing my voice screech out into the distance, you know? Like HELLO WORLD THIS IS MY FRUSTRATION AND I AM MAKING IT LEAVE MY BODY! When I do it into my pillow it feels like I'm throwing it into my pillow, but my pillow just bounces it right back at me. :/ Still more rewarding than not doing it at all, though, so I do!

I totally agree with your stomp!walking. I always wear stompy boots, I always have headphones and I usually have to walk around a lot. Unfortunately due to the old hip problems I usually can't choose to go out and walk an extra amount or I'll regret it later (I only have x amount of pain-free steps on a given walk, even with my cane and then I'll be sore later).

Thanks for the luck! Good luck to you too! ♥ And thank you for the comment. (: I really have missed you! Treebummmm.

If you put headphones in and listen to white noise, you could block him out. ^_^
