[Manic Mondays] A Few Days of Peace

posted in: Manic Mondays | 2

So, I’ve started to have this theory that social media is a magnet for the malocchia. I mean, aren’t you busy half-assedly hating anyone who dares to go on vacation while you were stuck at work?  This theory solidified after Jow and I went to Mexico and I posted one (1!) picture of a beautiful sunset.  I then proceeded to act like I’m new at life and left most of my id, my purse, my phone strewn about Mexico/Miami.  It was all just a pain in the ass to replace, nothing valuable luckily.  And ohhhhhhhhhhhkay, maybe it was also because I wanted to go back to a place I had been with my exhusband so even my mother thought the evil eye had been put on me somehow and she is magic in the vaguest most concrete annoying way that my sister is.  Since I was working on my book and was simmering in a pot of my own awful while writing it, I felt I didn’t need to attract any more attention so I was lying low for the last six months.

And then I realized on vaca after hearing some second hand gossip that people are going to want to find me aggravating, stuck up, over privileged, monstrous, spoiled and domineering if they are feeling jealous of me so fuck it.

However, should you want to fling some evil eye my way, rest assured, Jow and I were sick with various infections that we likely picked up at our last event that we did and were not at our finest for the beginning of our trip to Jamestown and I now have two months to willingly get back into my pot of awful and revise my book which just thinking about makes me die a little.

    You two are such a gorgeous couple!

    And I think you’re right about social media. Even if it’s not a vector for malocchia per se, it’s still a vector for all kinds of spiritual grunge and low-grade misery.
