Head Splodeys

Living life as a series of inexplicable obsessions

The continuing (mis)adventures of Duality Girl

Official memoirs of the Queen of Slack & Whining

Lifestyles of the Poor & Neurotic

Zoloft, the musical.

Maudlin angst-fest.

Land of manic non-sequiturs.

Emotional themepark

Post-modern fairytale.

Surrealist soap-opera.

Emotional Bulimia.

Jaded optimism.

Cynical idealism.

Quixotic bitterness.

Visionary skepticism.

Disillusioned flights of fancy.

What happens when an idealist is repeatedly beaten about the head & shoulders with a blunt object sometimes referred to as "The Real World".

I don't believe in much, but I don't DISbelieve anything... and that makes all the difference in the world...
