I’ll tell you what, folks: my mental health has not been great this week. I’m wound tighter than a drum, maybe even angry at my surroundings, probably because I’m feeling even more sensitive than usual rather than because anything especially offensive is happening. (Except for my commute home last night. That was offensive.) This is probably a sign of a bout of depression coming on. So far, I’m still productive, which means I’m not really depressed, but it takes a lot of alone time in the evening to recover from being pissed off all day.
Don’t worry about me, though, because I will survive as long as HBO gives us Game of Thrones content, even when it’s as half-assed and information-free as this Wall of Faces crap we got today. We got the faces coming at us on Twitter, and we started talking about them, but while everyone else was annoyed that we weren’t getting anything that actually gives us some info on Season 6, I was counting up the faces for patterns, and then I started seeking out conspicuous absences.
Reader, I felt 100% better within an hour of those faces showing up in my Twitter feed. I owe so much of my mental health over the past year to my Game of Thrones obsession.
Yeah, and I’m especially happy that FanSided gives me space to show everyone what a compulsive nerd I am by writing about the conspicuous absences I picked up from the patterns. Seven Hells, they are the best enablers of my addictions.
