Edit: After seeing Heather's comment, I am realizing this statement is poorly worded. What I meant is that when I am dealing with some people and being the sane stable person in the conversation, sometimes I have an easy and effortless time dealing with them. With dealing with other people in similar interactions, the sitution is stressful, nerve-racking, and very trying. That's what I meant.
I've done most of the stuff on my list! I just had some nice AIM and LJ time as a reward and now I think I'm going to take a shower and cut my toe nails. :-)
