Neither.....

Scab Pickers are the control freaks in life that "pick, pick, pick" on people and crazy details and don't see the big picture. The tend to rehash over old issues, picking at the wound and reopening old, bad feelings. I just see no sense in such behavior. Inefficient and unkind. Truely wasteful use of energy. They exhaust me.

Freddie makes me smile.

I am going to be in Columbus this weekend with the spousal unit for a Ophthalmology conference she has at the Easton Hilton.

Any suggestions for a spot for great Draft Ale and lunch for Saturday?
Anyone want to join me for such?

Is BJ's any good?

We might stop there Fri-night as they have a gluten free menu for wifey.

Holy shit. You.just.described.me.perfectly. I have been like that since I quit smoking and have been blaming it on the Chantix but I have been off of it for a few weeks now. I pray it goes away soon. It started small and just keeps getting worse and I have times where I literally say out loud "wtf am I saying/doing". No bullshit, I give it another week or I am going back to my DR and asking for some meds to level me out.

Sorry you had to deal with this from others. I hate myself several times a day.

I really like BJ's. I get the 8 pack Beer sampler. They're hefty 8 ounce samples (64 ounces total!) for about $12. They're all pretty good too. (Conversely, I went to The Elevator downtown, which was an awesome place, but their beer sampler was much pricier, smaller, and I really didn't love any of them).

Barleys Smokehouse is very good, and you're hitting it at the right time to get the extremely exclusive (like 2 weeks a year) beer whose name I can't recall at the moment. http://barleysbrewing.com/smokehouse/

I was impressed by Gordon Biersch too. But I didn't eat there, just stopped by for a drink. I'd imagine the food is pricier than the previous two. http://www.gordonbiersch.com/locations/columbus-oh

I thought the deep dish pizza was pretty good. Didn't get any "real" beer because I couldn't get enough of the "Handcrafted Root Beer". At the time you could it to go by the gallon.

Oh, you poor bastard!!! I think you just need to ride more.......

I don't blame you for the action of others, even if you act like them. At least you are aware!
Remember, part of the burden lies with the person interprecting your actions/behaviors, so don't just blame yourself. Part of my challenge is to get the scab picker to acknowledge this behavior and part of my challenge is to educate my staff on how to receive feedback from her (They perceive it as negative, but that's certainly not her intent)

Damn optimist in me
