Muse

Other lovers have inspired art of the highest feelings of love and longing. You, in the little time I have known you, have inspired the gray of ache, disillusionment, loss and longing. I want to paint the color between the no colors.

Christmas Card

Anticipating that I would write a few sentences declaring happy feelings, I wrote "Merry Christmas _____!" in small writing at the very top. Later, feeling crestfallen and empty when my bubble had burst, I found myself in a conundrum. No words came to mind that were appropriate for that once eager space. What to do? If I had known where I'd be, I would have initially made that tiny sentence at the top fill the whole page. It was written in pen so I couldn't erase it.

And how should I sign it?? How about a simple heart? Ooooh, maybe that's too much. I called my friend...
Friend: "What? He's afraid of a heart? No! Just draw a heart! No big deal!"
Me: "I dunno, he might be afraid"
Friend: "Of a heart??? Then draw a flower."
Me: "That's lame"
Friend: "Then how about a heart and a flower together?"
Me: "That might help, it may lessen the impact of the heart. But it may look too silly....Oh, I'll just draw a heart!"

After much deliberation, I drew a giant heart that filled the entire space with a comma and signed my name underneath it.

Bad "Carma"

So I've been having a huge string of bad luck lately. I don't like to vent much on my blog, but I gotta do it sometimes.

I think it all started when I got my speeding ticket in September. Actually, hours before I got my ticket, I had to call AAA to pull John's car off the side of the road. It was practically teetering on the edge of the road with a straight drop on the driver's side. I managed to convince him to give up trying to get the car back on the road because I could tell that it was about to slide down the edge or flip over. The drop wasn't even really that far down, but it was the way the car was situated that put it in a very-likely-to-flip position.

Anyways, we were lucky that all went well with getting the car back up where it belonged (even with the tow truck drivers who were quite reluctant to drive much further on the dirt road to get to the car). But my bad "CARma" soon started afterwards:

Speeding ticket. I was going 90 mph but got written up for 85.

A girl backed into me and scraped my bumper. She paid for it.

I rear ended someone coming off the freeway. I hit a giant SUV with a trailer hitch so no harm done on her end. I guess I was kinda lucky.

My dad straightens out my hood for me and later that very same day I crunch into a pole in a parking garage. Totally screwed up my front right side. My car had a crappy paint job, but now the body looks like crap too.

Someone breaks into my car the day after I crunch it. Busted the back passenger window and stole my stereo along with my book of beloved CDs. Music that most people won't even like. Half of them are burned and are mixes by obscure DJs.
Lesson here is don't EVER leave your faceplate in the car. Don't hide it in the glove box or under the seat. I was taking it in with me for months and I started slacking these last couple of months. Ack! I keep regretting my laziness! But too late for that. They would've stole the CDs anyways if they couldn't get the stereo. Grrr, and I was even telling myself then that I needed to take that book in!

So now my car looks like crap, I drive around in silence, and I miss my music collection terribly.
