black, shiny

(no subject)

Wow.

Apparently, someone on LiveJournal posted a suicide note to her journal, then attempted suicide in front of her webcam. Somehow this made the national news in the USA.

I won't post a link to the diary of the person concerned (most of the really worrying stuff has been made friends-only anyway), and I won't post a link to any of the news sites with the story on because apparently they all got major facts wrong, but wow - that really puts my problems into perspective.

I've been very tired the past couple of days, sleeping for 15 or 16 hours a day. I think the weather doesn't help. Since Saturday it's been grey and drizzly here, whereas before that we had a couple of
weeks of brilliant sunshine. I'm inclined towards something like seasonal affective disorder, where bad weather really affects my mood, so the complete lack of sunshine in the past week hasn't helped me at all. Still, I'm looking forward to the weekend. Barring complete exhaustion, I should be going to the Liquid Lounge tomorrow, and I've got a karaoke party on Saturday. Also, Eddy came round yesterday and he mentioned that Funland has a new game which is like Dancing Stage only with hand movements. I asked if it was Para Para Paradise, but he couldn't remember the name. So we'll definitely have to investigate that.
