I've been suffering from a temporary insanity known as love, but all of this has now come to a screeching halt, and once again the sobriety of longing is wielding its ugly face. What a perfect time to create a playlist, huh? Its been said that every crush needs a soundtrack and over the years I've made some pretty amazing mixed tapes...Yeah well, but the same can be said for every dream that's been crushed. Haha! Here's my first pick...
If this is it by Huey Lewis & the News
I've been staring at the phone wondering why she's not been calling (if you don't know who I'm referring to, see my previous two blog entries). Seriously, I've been doing that. I took a chance on this new girl and look where its gotten me - I've been getting the cold shoulder. My first thought was, “so whats his name?” And, guess what? I was right. I feel like I've been kicked in the stomach...

I sometimes wonder why I even care about find a soul mate. Is it because my parents are still happily married? Is it the society that I grew up in? Yes and Yes, I'm sure. Maybe its because I listen to all this sappy music! Now thats funny! Hahaha! Ambrose Bierce states in his Devils Dictionary that love is a temporary insanity curable by marriage, or removing oneself from the situation that caused this insanity. He approaches the subject satirically from a doctors character and the patient is the one stricken with a disease called love. I think this idea is freaking hilarious. This isn't exactly a statement of genius, its more that the twist on the subject is funny and clever. So it doesn't matter if you know his writings or not. In fact, he's pretty much stating the obvious. But I still think this satire is really great - here's a quote:
“LOVE, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like _caries_ and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient.”

Oh, so how did I find out that there's another dude in the picture, other than my keen intuition? She sent me an email. Duh, thats how its done these days. This is how it went down- this morning when I woke up I made a cup of coffee then checked my email. Oh, to my surprise and much anticipation, there was an email from her (Chloe)! You know the one, the one that came into MY LIFE while I was minding MY own business, tracked ME down, asked ME out on a date, when I was doing just FINE on my own...
sorry I have been MIA. Your website is very cool and I think you should make an underwater scape, with little characters. A treasure trunk bubbling out updates about your new stuff, and a little school of fish in class, a cave that makes you want to click on to see whats inside, inside could be a lobster? Plus I really like your whirl chair thats white.......â€¨â€¨ok well I have not been calling you because a past lover came back into my life. Ouch the truth is hard to say....... If I call you for beers or late night hang outs its not cool, cause I can not divide my attention between two men, I fall short. I have to be here now, and I just have to say this. Kinda of much right? ok well I'm just an imaginative girl with honest intentions so this is me being honest. Please write to me if you feel like it. I just cant hang out.
I will now take refuge in the harbor of amazing music. You see Ambrose Bierce, this is how you really cure love – you take a healthy dose of Yacht Rock!!! Our second Yacht Rock artist up-to-bat for Team Heart Break City, Phil Collins. I'm going to guess that Phil Collins is singing this song just for me. How narcissistic you say...I know. But I'm his biggest fan, so Shut the Fuck Up...I'm really feeling this one!
Easy Lover by Phil Collins
And, if you hadn't already guessed, I originally had a sob story piece intended for this blog. Really, it was sappier than this one already is, and I almost posted it. Wanna know what songs I was going to include? Okay, here's two:
Hello by Lionel Richie
Sail On by The Commodores
Hahaha! Deep down inside I really can be “A Huge Pussy”. But those readers that actually follow my blog already know this. I'm going to change the trajectory here because I'm feeling the vide that my boy Phil is throw'n down. So, instead of posting the first thing that I wrote the morning this shit went down, I waited a few days and now I have a whole new perspective on things. Fuck all this pity party shit! We're not going to do that anymore. Hahaha! Seriously, I've just been honest this entire time and for some reason I've been meeting these flighty, unavailable women, so I've been inspired to turn this whole thing around. This blog is now going to be about how I keep meeting women that are heart breakers! Yeah, you see this means that none of this shit is my fault at all. Its just part of a bigger picture, really. And if there is one thing that I have learned through all of my years of being single, dating, having a girl friend, moving in together, breaking up, and all the games in between is that you really don't know someone until you do. And when you find out, you best be ready to take a punch. So, this song is dedicated for my special someone (you Chloe)...
