a case of the mean reds

from Breakfast at Tiffanys...
Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!
Well I should have gone to Tiffany's cause yesterday I had a case of the mean reds. I was feeling so crappy. I was sore, my back was hurting, I was tired but couldnt sleep, and I I lashed out at my boyfriend for no reason at all. So I said screw sparkpeople and curled up with some chocolate. I didnt track any food yesterday which makes me a little dissappointed but I've had those days before and the last time I had one I just quit sparkpeople all together.
So I'm not gonna beat myself up I'm just gonna dismiss it as one of those days and today i'm back with a vengeance. But maybe next time I'll go to the mall and have some window shopping "me" time like Ms. Golightly suggested.
