Suck it up, Persephone.  

 Tired of feeling moody and cranky and generally recalcitrant?

Try Carrie's sure-fire "Make You Feel Better" Trifecta:

1.  Pedicure/Manicure - what's not to love about pretty feet?  Seriously, these are worth the cash.  Skip lunch, and go have one.  You will not regret it.

2.  A Diet Coke (or your soda of choice) from Sonic Drive In.  Crunching the ice is therapeutic.  And, if it's not to weird for you, you can pretend that it's the bones of all the people that piss you off.  (Oh, my.  My dark side is showing.  Sorry, Mother.)  And if you don't have a Sonic near you, I am terribly sorry.  The ice is really first rate.

3.  Retail Therapy - I bought myself some nail polish, a candle, a new shower curtain and a tablecloth.  Good times.

I also did a little writing with

seegrim, that always cheers me considerably, I wrote some more of Chapter 5 of Marrying Pansy Parkinson, and sent the first package for this meme.  goddessvicky should get her box of goodies on Halloween!  Yay.

And happy birthday wishes to ladyendymion.  I hope everything is well for you and your family, and that your birthday is fabulous!

The last time someone tried to give me a pedicure I kicked them in the face by accident. I have really ticklish feet. :)

Eep! Maybe a facial, then? Those are excellent, as well.

Sounds like my recipe for a good day! Alas, I took the kids for their flu shots, son got his stitches out (from ankle surgery) and I paid bills. Really, wish I could've had your day!

He he! I'm all for the retail therapy and the whole ice= enemy thing. Thanks for amusing me! *grin*

I agree on all three counts. Just substitute Diet Coke for Diet Pepsi and we're all set. ;) I just discovered pedicures this summer (I used to have a thing about people touching my feet) and now I don't know how I lived without them for so long! Now my only problem is funding my pedicure obsession. (I guess it helps that there're are no decent nail places in Kingston so I have to wait until I get back to Toronto.) Same goes for retail therapy. I need to make a graph that shows the corellation between my mood and the amount of money I spend on useless crap (or not so useless on rare occassions).
