What I’m thinking about right now

Whenever I talk about someone I know who has passed away, I really want to say “but I didn’t kill him/her”. It’s this urge I have to fight, this strange inappropriateness that tempts me like wearing striped thigh highs with mini-skirts in the present, not in 1994 when that was acceptable.

If I get a great song stuck in my head, life is good for days on end and I think happy thoughts for all of mankind. If I get an awful song stuck in my head, I wish harm upon others. This is why I don’t allow kid music in the car. Give me a towel, Mr. Tangerine Speedo.

When I see someone eating a slice of pizza like it’s a taco (i.e. folded up), I have to repress the urge to bitch-slap that person. You’re eating pizza, not a taco. If you want a taco, get a taco. You don’t have to get the pizza in your mouth faster by pretending it’s a different food.

When I think about the times I’ve been a bad friend, I feel like I could cry until my eyes stopped functioning as eyes, and served only as squishy marbles.

Almost every day, I have to stop myself from approaching a stranger and pretending to know him/her. I want to throw my arms around the stranger. “Hey! How are you? I’ve missed you. How long has it been?” Just to see what the reaction will be. I kind of think most of them would play along. No one wants to be the jerk.

    I’ve had Journey’s Faithfully stuck in my head for roughly a week. I think it’s kind of an awesome song, especially now that they have that adorable filipino man as the new Steve Perry. So I’d like to share this experience with you. Here you go:

    Highway run
    Into the midnight sun
    Wheels go round and round
    You’re on my mind

    Restless hearts
    Sleep alone tonight
    Sending all my love along the wire
    They say that the road
    Ain’t no place to start a family
    Right down the line it’s been you and me
    And loving a music man
    Ain’t always what it’s supposed to be
    Oh Girl
    You stand by me
    I’m forever yours

    Circus life
    Under the big top world
    We all need the clowns to make us smile

    Through space and time
    Always another show
    Wondering where I am lost without you
    And being apart ain’t easy on this love affair
    Two strangers learn to fall in love again
    I get the joy of rediscovering you
    Oh girl
    You stand by me
    I’m forever yours

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh (THIS IS THE BEST PART!)
    I’m still yours
    I’m forever yours
    Ever yours

    Nobody jumps subjects but somehow ties them all together like you. 🙂

    Totally explains your dislike of me ordering sandwiches at Vino’s.
