time distortion and jet packs  
I realized this morning that being depressed makes me very patient and unrushed. This morning I helped a lady carry her baby-laden strolled down the subway stairs even though it meant missing my train. When my train mysteriously stopped in between stations it didn't bother me at all. And even when we finally reached my stop, I was perfectly content to let even the slowest of my fellow commuters rush by me, instead of jockeying to be the first one out. It's such a dramatic contrast to when I'm in a good mood and full of nervous impatience because nothing is happening fast enough for me.

In other news, I'm not much of a Carmen Electra fan, but I'm positively batty about pictures of women wearing jetpacks, so...

"I find I'm either helpful and caring about other people when I feel shit about myself, or I totally don't give a shit about anything and my sleeping-nest and I get some more quality days to feel nothing about anything"

That's sorta what I think I meant to put there.

I still think you should apply for a grant to study depression related loss of interest. And if you word it right, send me a copy and we'll do a country comparison study. And work on what can be equated to studying penguins watching planes.

But we won't have to work in Antarctica.
