today i lifted my self-imposed ban of all love songs.  i have been listening to swell season’s strict joy as a reward to myself for not indulging in the typical post-break-up-depression i am used to.  sure, i’ve been sad at times and sure, i’ve been nostalgic – but overall, i’ve just been too busy to sink too deep.

and i’ve let myself vent to the internet to get those feelings out of my system instead of letting it brew inside of my soul.  so, here is a beautiful song from the album that i enjoy a(n unhealthily) large amount:

In These Arms – Swell Season

use the truth as a weapon

to beat up your friends

every chink in the armor

an excuse to cause offense

and the boys from the hallway calling out your name

and true love will find them in the end

you were restless

i was somewhat less secure

so i went running to the road

and so now there’s a long list of places i was

i quit my rambling and came home

cause maybe i was born to hold you in these arms

maybe i was born to hold you in these arms

use your saints and your mantra

and your things to keep you calm

if you stay with that asshole

he’s gonna do you harm

there’s a voice singing loudly on the radio just for you

that good fortune will find him in the end

maybe i was born to hold you in these arms…

scrabble was invented by nazis to piss off kids with dyslexia. this is true, they proved this one. the word dyslexia was invented by nazis to piss off kids with dyslexia.

is it *terribly* obvious that when i’m enjoying something, i like to make a big splash about it in every internet forum i partake in?

mostly i love scrabble.  about the same amount as my love for eddie izzard (which is monumental).

also i’ve been chatting somewhat regularly with a new acquaintance and it makes me happy.  i wish i chatted this much with my old acquaintances too (hint, hint).

and i’m sorry to which ever man should meet my sorry state,
watch my steady lonesome gait and beware.
i would never love a man ’cause love and pain go hand in hand
and i can’t do it again.

– laura marling

truer words were never sang about the condition i am in.

i am sick of writing lovesick verses.

i just bought this single today (finally) and the t-shirt deal was too tempting to pass up… as if i have the money to spend on frivolity when i’m facing vet bills large enough to topple anyone’s checkbook.


I made decisions some right and some wrong
And I let some love go I wish wasn’t gone
These things and more I wish I had not done

– The Avett Brothers

And every word spoken
Were desp’rate desire seeds
Sown in your raging hair
Blown to your face so fair
But I died five lifetimes
Before I breathed just what I needed

-Frontier Ruckus

I’m conflicted about how to act. Do I go with it and face an inevitably devastating heartbreak or do I cut it off right now and deny myself of fleeting happiness? Completely rhetorical since I know I can’t avoid temptation.

And I’m a sucker for love affairs with disastrous endings…
