D-Day (D for Depression)

Miki's last post lists things she does to overcome depression. I rather need this today as I had my purse stolen - two girls seemed to be sticking close to me in a drugstore: while I was reading labels on shampoos they needed to look at shampoos and when I went to look at something else, one of them bobbed up again by my side. I found it a bit strange, but when they left the shop I thought nothing of it - until I found my bag unzipped and realised that they had removed my purse, which I had stupidly left on the top! So now I am depressed due to my own stupidity - although luckily thanks to having my purse stolen some years ago in the metro, I no longer keep anything but money in there, and money is at least the most replaceable thing. Anyway, this is what I actually did:
*Eat mango yoghurt
*Eat another mango yoghurt
*Go for a walk in the park, although it was more like a stomp because I was so cross with myself
*Buy new magazines
*Read new magazines
*Try to do sudoku puzzles
*Clear up the kitchen
*Tell someone they are wrong (in response to yet another urban legend e-mailed to me as a warning, this time about lead in lipsticks)
*Read blogs to see what sort of a day other people have had
*Have a long hot bubble bath (OK I haven't done this yet but I am going to).

Tomorrow I might take myself to the Cercle d
es Voyageurs.

PS And now I find that according to this article in the Washington Times, my depressing day is 2 days late!

Hi,Qaminante-san.Thank you for coming to my blog.I can imagine your feelings. In japan we think that salt has a effect of purification. For example,after attending a funeral,before entering a house, we throw salt each other. And also some salt in bath is good for our skin. I propse that you use some salts(not too many) when you take your bath.
It means "Bye-Bye Bad things!". I hope you'll be happy!

Yes, you need to get out from your depression.
My wallet was stolen from my purse which was half opened in the metro in Paris, too. ( How stupid I was!)
I noticed it when I tried to pay for something at the shop, it was so embarassing.
I put everything there. Does it often happen in Brussels? It seems to be very unusual that it happened in the drug store. How dare they are!!

Sorry to hear about your woes! That bites! I've had it happen to me once.

Thanks all for commiserations. Yes, Greensleeves, Brussels is rather like Paris in this respect, I've had my purse/wallet taken out of my pocket or bag 3 times now, although I suppose over a period of 25 years this is not too bad, and at least it did not involve violence. Also in this particular case I blame my own stupidity - although not as much as those rude and horrible girls!

I'm sorry to hear about your stolen purse. I would be very angry and upset, too!

Sudoku is rather addicting, isn't it?
