Cry Baby


For whatever reason, it's been a week of rather a lot of (small) weeps. Nothing major, no big heaving sob fests, but basically I'm feeling a bit nervous to go anywhere or watch anything for fear it will attack my tear ducts! Here's a list of things that made my mascara run this week:

~ Lorelei serenading Luke with "I Will Always Love You" at karaoke in The Gilmore Girls. I've seen this episode a bajillion times, but it always get me! She's so vulnerable, her voice is a bit wobbly but so pure and full of love, putting herself out there for the last time, for all times.

 ~ A massage. My back was seizing up/completely stiff for a few days to the point where I couldn't sleep, I was writhing around my living room floor in agony one night - so I caved and went to my physiotherapist. Sweet baby Jesus the relief of proper muscle manipulation in my spine made the tears flow! Probably the first "real" massage I've had in years. Seriously, save your spa pennies and go to a trained physio who isn't afraid to bring the pain!

~ Rain and sleet blowing at gale force, in my face. Ok, it was just a physiological reaction but by the time I'd battled through it to the shops the tears of frustration at Aberdeen's b*tchy weather moods were genuine!

~ A friend's baby Bris blessing video. Her husband said so many sweet and lovely things about their love and their family and it made a few tears flow.

~ The dance at the end of the Starz ballet drama Flesh and Bone. Completely gorgeous, a culmination of the journey of the characters, and while it was crazy weird Black Swan territory at times I do recommend it - most of the leads are professional dancers, and the dancing in it is breathtaking.

~ Adele. Only live Adele. I'm not an Adele fan per se, (maybe I just know her music would make me cry constantly!), but I do find it impossible not to click on some of her live performances - why, am I a masochist? It would seem so! She just gives it when she sings live, it's crazy/impossible not to cry! Just me? Ok this one doesn't make me cry!

~ Homeland: Please can you stop trying to kill Quinn? How much must he suffer? This latest episode was HORRIFIC. If Quinn dies, I'm out!

 ~ The entire final episode of The Office (U.S.) Yes I've only just seen it for the first time. So many feels! Jim and Pam! (Sob) Michael! (so understated...sniff) Dwight and Angela! (snuffle) Pam's speech at the end! (oh god I'm done!).

Is it just me, is anyone else having ticklish tear ducts this week?

  1. I was Xmas shopping today and it was pretty gruelling, I guess I just wasn't in the mood. Idecisive and racked by anxiety. I love Quinn ( dark, sexy, tormented...) but haven't seen this series yet, no spoilers please! I also get so grumpy in the winter.

    1. Aww, have a mulled wine! It is stressful the Christmas shopping! No spoilers, sorry! Suffice to say he's having a tough time of it! The dark skies at 3:30 are deeply gloomy/depressing!

  2. I've been pretty tearful lately - although I don't feel uber stressed and tired, it's a sure sign I am! Things that have made me cry recently:
    1. Watching the school orchestra play in the Christmas concert.
    2. The school choir singing Seasons Of Love in said concert.
    3. Hitting myself in the face with the Christmas tree stand (that one led Thomas to find me sitting, ice pack to my mouth, sobbing "I hate Christmas" like a peeved toddler. Not my finest moment)
    4. Not being able to unwrap a candle I'd bought.

    1. Oh wow, choirs always get me too, especially school children! Ouch, Christmas tree stands are lethal! We have a big old metal one from when we got real trees, I imagine that was sore! And not being able to open things is SO frustrating!

  3. It must be a thing. I've been a bit weepy for the past week or two.

  4. i notice as i get older i'm getting more sentimental/emotional. Sometimes you just have one of those weeks, let the tears flow.
    Glad you were able to get the massage! Sounds amazing :)

  5. Oh Steff, you sure gave your eyeballs a good washing! I cry much less easily as I've gotten older but once pretty much everything made me cry. The hormones can act up a bit though and make me more emotional and teary. I hope you are having lots of smiles lately! xoxo
