these are the things

first, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is not about the TTHM, per se. inspired by his words, but dramatized for the television audience. It’s an experiment. I’ve been reading Written on the Body. I’m sorry i should have warned you. your heart should not break for me. no hearts should break for me. there will be no achy, breaky hearts– not today (it’s Rex Manning Day).

second, whatever is sort of about the TTHM and other people and men and various events that upset me yesterday. i was angry, he got the brunt of it. that’s not fair, he did nothing to deserve it. well he did do something to deserve it, he didn’t cater to my every whim and fill me full of sunshine. i was being bratty. i have a tendency to do that. right now, he makes me happy. that is all that matters. also, angry beats hurt any day of the week. anger disappears in the night. hurt sticks with you.

third, the sun is shining, i’m getting my hair cut. life is good and beautiful.

fourth, i had oodles of weird dreams involving sex with my old friend glenn whom i haven’t seen and/or slept with in years. there were sex toys that looked like power tools, squirrels in the house, strange chinese girls sleeping in my bed and a baby named chanhassen. i can’t explain any of it.

fifth, there is no five.

sixth, i just drank from a diet coke of indeterminate age. it might be time to clean off my desk.

seventh, i have class tonight. next week is the last class, i am sad about that. we’ve just finally warmed up to each other and now, it is over.

eighth, that is all.

    I, for one, am relieved. I hope your heart really is soaring, though. 🙂

    it is soaring, i cannot deny that. i am sorry that i made you worry. i suspect i will do an awful lot of apologizing today.

    i guess that’s the price you pay for being a bratty brat. good thing i don’t mind so much.

    “i forgot what eight was for”

    that just popped into my head.

    I think Jodi is just testing the E.C.C.S.S.; Emergency Comfort and Care Support System.

    You know I’ll tilt at windmills for you, fictionalized or real.

    And yeah, warnings would be good.
