I'm beginning to see the light



Here we are:






















And just like that, every light in the house came on.

I sat bolt up right.

Gone the gloom, the sense of inevitable despair.

Gone the fog that I have slept walk through these past few weeks.


Well I'll be damned.

I'm on drugs.




TIME TO DO THINGS!!!

Where to start?!!?

How to end?!!?

I think I can hear my thoughts in my teeth, tee hee.

  2. So now that you're feeling better this is a romance blog?

    P.S. Congratulations on the birth of happiness and the upcoming birth of your child.

  3. I'd like to echo your wife's words: I'm glad you're back Gween!

  4. Woot!!! I don't know which I love more -- Prozac Man and his Merry Band of Mind-altering Miscreants or your wife. So flippin' fab that you are feeling like yourself again -- and just in time for Gweenie Baby!

  5. Wives. They always know exactly what to say and when to say it to get us to fix that dryer vent, don't they?

    1. In my case, my wife would be much better off fixing things herself, as I tend to make a bit of a bungle out of it

  6. Just fucking hilarious.

    (I never have a problem with swearing and anyway to just say that was hilarious does not do it justice. No it was the motherfucking height of hilarity).

    I'm glad you're feeling better too. Although you probably could've waited a few more days before taking Prozac - with the nippers you already have and a new baby I doubt you would've had time to be depressed.

    Best have a think about any other "jobs" you blamed not doing on it too, cos I bet MrsG has a mental list just waiting for you....

    1. Thanks cowgirl! You are a better swearer than me, you have a better sense of its timing.
      If the level of weird energy the medication provides holds out, than it might serve me well in the sleepless newborn nights ahead.

  7. Oh, the mystical powers of prozac man...I hope we continue to see him in your future posts...this is one of the best ones yet!

    1. Thank you so much Dorsey! I might draw him more, because that beard was pretty fun to draw, but I have to think of something entertaining for him to do

  8. this is my favorite thing you've written since i read the post about how to use baby wipes.
    i like how being inside your own unique costume creation made you feel normal.
    yay for your fat baby that's almost here!

    1. WOW thanks Sherilin! That is such a nice thing to say. I have a weird relationship with costumery, in that even wearing a pair of sunglasses makes me feel like I can be anyone I want to be.

  9. Better living through chemistry! So happy for you. And, yes, man stuff does make us swoon!

    1. Thanks! I usually undo my wife's swooning whenever I do a victory dance after fixing something. It's a whole lot of awkwardly rotating man belly

  11. Glad you're feeling better gweenie but...erm at the thought of making you depressed again...you do know that if the baby arrives in 10 days, then it will be born on Spawn's birthday...not that I'm alluding to anything...I mean he may turn out fine and not evil at all...I'll shut up now shall I?

    1. But at the very least, Spawn sounds remarkably intelligent for his age; I might be cool with an evil GENIUS....just not an evil doofus.
      And, if he ends up like Spawn, at least I am guaranteed some good blogging material

  12. Citalipram Man comes to my house once a day and makes me get up in the morning and do stuff. I'm starting to hate that sonofabitch. (Oh... I get to swear all the time, so it's not a big deal. I'm actually pretty good at it, or at least I think I am, until people giggle when I do it and say things like, "It's HYSTERICAL when you drop the F bomb because you sound SO SWEET and it's like MARY POPPINS or ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is all, "Fuck... BWAAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!" Bitches.

    Don't you love how I make all your blogs about me?

    Meanwhile, happy thoughts for a healthy and easy delivery for mommy and I can't wait to hear that the newest little Gweenbrick has made his debut!!

    1. I would take at least a laugh when I swear, as opposed to the pitying glances and "oh he tries so hard, doesn't he?" sighs that I do get

      You can make all my blogs about you, thats cool.

    2. I forgot to mention you look good in a burqa. But then everyone kinda looks the same in a burqa.

      I am glad you are feeling better, I have been thinkin' about you alot hoping that you would be getting on the mend. I wiLL rest easier now that I know there are a few more smiles in the GB household. I am looking forward to hearing more about The Next Baby Gweenbrick.

    3. Thank you, I do cut a rather dashing figure when poured into a burqa. They are quite form-fitting in a completely formless way.

  15. Gweenbrick, I love your blog for some of the same reasons I love anime (I know I know!). I love it because it is almost completely impossible to predict. Maybe it was all that time you spent in Japan.......

    1. Thanks Heather! I am part Japanese, so maybe thats it?
      Its funny because my blog always seems predictable to me, but I guess that is because it is playing out in my head, so makes sense

  16. Yay! Welcome back! Hope Mr Prozac continues the good fight.

  17. I am so happy to hear you're feeling better. I was a little worried, at first, that you would be writing about how Prozac isn't working for you, but it has pulled you through! Happy and joy!

  19. This is probably my favorite blog that I've seen in awhile. Kudos!

  20. I love this post. There is something a little bit eerie about Prozac man and his merry band. I feel like I could hear creepy carnival music playing when he arrived on scene....

    It's great you're feeling better and have energy to do stuff. By the way, I've read that right before a woman goes into labor, she gets a really strong nesting urge. It's like her body's last hormone push to get ready for baby.
