9/2 Good news/bad news/good news/bad news

The good news is that I don't have to have surgery. The bad news is that I ruptured tendons in my foot and have to wear the ace wrap and a surgical boot for several weeks. The good news is that I'm working at ComedySportz this weekend and can sit while I work.

Some absolutely devastating news is that I found out that a writer friend is dying. It's such a shock. She and I were never close. She always rubbed me the wrong way and I didn't like the way she treated people. On the surface she is sweet, then mean, then sweet again, and the nice people we hang out with remember the good stuff, and this lady has done some fantastically unselfish and giving things for some individuals. But she backstabs like crazy and has defamed me and others to anyone who will listen. It took a long time but I finally found out what she was saying about me, and it was really hurtful. I wonder what kind of gain people get from behaving that way. I feel so guilty at the moment for not having liked her, and I won't say phony things. But I did offer good wishes and many prayers, and those are sincere. I don't want to see anyone suffer, and this person is indeed suffering. This is hard.

I wish I were a better person.

you ARE a better person by being honest... many people wouldn't be, and give phoney adoration or undue respect... you are honest... you are better
