It’s good to soften the blow and try to add something a little comforting to bad news. Food is usually my comfort retrieval mechanism of choice. How about you? Teddy bear? Music? Video games?
Bonus! Rave Accessory!
Sleep for me.
Building a model airplane, music (mainly Classical), reading, watching Animation/Anime, walking…
Probably sleep :/
Music, definitely. My manager has the White Stripes to thank for averting the bringing of pain.
Money or games would be nice. A cheap 10 dollar DS game would soften the blow of the hourly wage cut.
Or just 10 dollars to hire someone to kill you.
Sleep or sudoku. Really, anything that either knocks me out or stimulates my brain and hands at the same time.
Musics and sleep. Green tea as well. Sometimes also sweet things, and Cute Overload to make me feel better.
Failing that, loud angry music and Grand Theft Auto/Turok/L4D/[insert gory and violent videogame here].
heh gory games, sweet things, loud music (while playing gory games) and taking things apart (But mom I the heater needed a tune-up!) LOL
My computer seems to fill that void. Worried that I haven’t studied enough for an upcoming test? I sit at the computer all night instead and reduce the worry. Yeah…
Sometimes I will get an ice cream cone, or curl up on my bed and listen to a Fray CD twice until I fall asleep. The Fray is actually remarkably good…
As I’m always in a comfort zone (wohoo for working from home!) I don’t really leave it until someone makes me angry. Then I need Alice in Chains, Santana, The Pretenders, 3 Doors Down and a dirty house. I will turn up my Ipod and clean until I stop being pissed.
I usually watch a DVD (it’s my solution for everything). If I’m at home, my mom and I watch Sahara, which is our ultimate guilty pleasure movie. ‘Tis light, fun, funny, and fast-paced.
wait, are we asking what we want, or what we give others?
Dogs. Lots and lots of dogs.
When I really down, I go down to the Rescue Farm where I volunteer, and clean kennels, and play with the dogs – Border Collies, actually.
Cleaning the kennels gives me a sense of actually doing something that *helps* someone (well, some dogs, anyway!), and hucking balls for a couple hours burns off anger and frustration beautifully. The dogs’ innocent enthusiasm and delight at seeing me can fix any crappy day.
When I need comforting I always have my dear Girlfriend, but when someone dies i normally play a realistic video game. Normally a war game, which is odd because I normally don’t like them.
When breaking the news to someone else i like to have their favorite thing with me. When I broke up with my ex I gave her some dark chocolate.
Excuse me, O Mighty Funbringer.
Isn’t it “Soothe” instead of “Sooth?”
Just to be sure. English’s not my native language.
Excuse me, Oh Mighty Funbringer.
Just checking. English is not my native language.
Videos games, and if they aren’t enough I sleep a hole day!
Video games, loud and particularly angry music. If it’s really upsetting then sleeping for a day or two.
LOLcats and motorcycles. I’d love to work for a company that gives out motorcycles as a bonus.
Comforting… Smoking Zombies in video games always helps
Books got me through the hellish years of school. I miss going through 4+ novels a week.
Books for me, too. Recently, I read the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. Strongly recommend it to anyone with two functioning eyes (not sure if there’s a brail version yet).
Sorry, I should have said “at least one functioning eye”. Text doesn’t require depth perception…
Copious quantities of Cuervo.
Sitting back on the couch with a cold beer and watching TV.
If it is a weekday and i have had a frustrating day at work, well then the Book of Biff can really turn my mood around. If i don’t have a new Book of Biff to read then i will usually do something involving video games (not making them normally though), or once there is a Random button again in Book of Biff…
Cup of tea & a snack, then out for a walk with the Beagle girls…come spring though the garden calls and calms
hippy dippy music. and cats. and movies. or harry potter. or all of it combined!
it is my dream one day to grow a field of cats and roll around in them. yes.
or the movie Sweeney Todd and alcohol. then i get to sing along and not care about how bad i sound and watch violence, bloody violence…
Lullatone music. Seriously, google that shit. Awesome comfort music.
Music, bicycle ride, video games, sleep, or movie time.
Ha! This one is quite witty. I like.
Pacify the masses :p
A teddy bear, nice and simple. I just broke up with my boyfriend and my Mum turned up next day with a teddy.
I’ve got an interesting one, an antique box fan, I tell ya there’s nothing more relaxing than the sound of a really ancient electric fan.
You can fall asleep in the middle of the day listening to one of them.
Video games!!!! Even though I’ll probally get even more angrier when I suck and then I just lose the will to play
Video games, TV, computers, anything electronic!
I know i am a few days late but… So yea my computer decided to kerplode, and so i lost access to my games AND the Book of Biff. Apparently i need a noncomputer stress relief!
cooking, dvds and GTA4. reading helps too, but more so because i got so absorbed into what i’m reading that i’m almost dead to the world.
btw, i bet biff’s note with his bonus went along the lines of: “quit your crying and suck on this for a while.” that would have been phenomenal.
i love that biff has a pacifier in his mouth lol
i get over bad stuff with a good book
Music, writing, watching DVDs, reading comic books. I learned to adapt to to disappointment.
I have to ask: How often do you just draw something random, wait until somebody puts up a guess for what week it is, and go from there?
Music and books.
Lots and lots of books.
Origami and writing poetry.
