Apropos Is Uncommonly Apropos This Week

To wit, (an anthem for the year?):

I’m bitter, I’m morose and I’m as sad as channel 10. I’m bored day and night like a chimney sweep when everbody uses electric heat.

I’m only thirty years old and a bit but there are piles of little bits when I wake up in the morning

I am an ambitious loser, and, sadly enough, that suits me fine. I can’t function, and I’m sure that all my replacement parts are dicontinued.

I have no problem with my car. But I have no car. I have lots of problems with money. But I have no money.

I’m only thirty years old and a bit but there are piles of little bits when I wake up in the morning.

All my needs and desires are confused. I don’t know what I want any more. I’m greedy, and all I do is complain, ‘Won’t somebody please knock me out.’

I’m only thirty years old and a bit but there are piles of little bits when I wake up in the morning.

But not so! Everyone was holding out – turning 30 is splendid. Fun! Comforting? Explore that thought later. But for the first time, the number on the card feels deliciously, gleefully, ridiculously right.

Or maybe it just makes me laugh, and that’s what feels good =)~

This year, birthdays look like:

  • sleepy 3am sex and turning the heat up
  • sushi lunches and I ::heart:: mango lassi, but not at the same time
  • that behind-the-eye brightness of rain in the sun
  • photocopies and paperwork (this is the year a lot of things get done!)
  • long baths and warm smooth skin with vintage sparkly to cool off
  • pressies and true stories and fun yet to come =D

Happy lucky me :)
