Arguments I sometimes have with myself that totally bum me out

Sometimes when I am idly surfing the web or pondering the next sentence to write and Liz Phair or Lucinda Williams shuffles up on Evangeline I start arguing with myself. It usually goes like this.

“If I could be any rockstar on the planet, I would totally be Lucinda Williams,” I say.
“Right on, right on,” Myself says. “Lu’s cool.”
“And she’s like 50 and she still kicks all kinds of ass,” I say.
“But you know,” Myself says. “What about Liz Phair?”
“That last album was shitty,” I say.
“So shitty that you don’t want to be the woman who gave the world Exile in Guyville?” Myself says.
“Yeah, well, but,” I say.
“I think we should totally be Liz Phair if we could be any rockstar on Earth,” Myself says.
“But I really love Lu,” I say.
“and I really love Liz,” Myself says.

And the discussion goes on and on and on:
“Lu’s friends with Paul Westerberg,” I say.
“Liz wrote “Whip-smart” which is pretty much responsible for every word we write,” Myself says.
“You’re an idiot,” I say.
“You’re dumber,” Myself says.

Then I start to weep about all the time I spend arguing with myself about something that won’t/can’t happen.

    Liz Phair’s last album (singular?) was shitty?

    I liked the one “poppy” one with Dig Little Digger and Extraordinary and Why Can’t I.

    So yes, it was just the last one that was shitty.

    I’ll cut anyone who disses on whitechocolatespaceegg.
