Heavy, Man

Two heavy things today:

(1) I got a haircut. A serious haircut. I thought my last haircut was serious when I went from having hair half-way down my back to moderately short, but this time I’ve gone to a number two all over, which basically means my head is just fuzzy, like a big peach. It’s a smaller quantity of hair than the last one, but it’s even more of a serious change. I’m still getting used to it. Annette’s new haircut looks GREAT, but I am unsure of my own. It’s a big thuggish/skinheady. It’s possible I’m just too large to get away with it without looking like a thug. Which kinda sucks. Easy to grow out if I decide I don’t like it.

(2) I made an offer on a new (used) car. A mazda MX-5, bright red, covertible (A mazda miata to you american types) and it’s pretty cool, and very well priced. I’ll know if they’ve accepted in the next 48 hours or so. MASSIVE FRETTING ON MY PART! I hope they do, I’ve always wanted a convertible. I came VERY close to offering on a mid-80’s Chevrolet Corvette, but then, at the last minute, I remembered that my gas usage is already pretty high, and the reason I’ve been shopping for small cars.

So much change. I fear it.

Title of the Song

Someone sent me the following deconstruction of your basic boy band/smoove guy love song:


TITLE OF THE SONG

Declaration of my feelings for you
Elaboration on those feelings
Description of how long these feelings have existed
Belief that no one else could feel the same as I

Reminiscence of the pleasant times we shared
And our relationship’s perfection
Recounting of the steps that led to our love’s dissolution
Mostly involving my unfaithfulness and lies

Penitent admission of wrongdoing
Discovery of the depth of my affection
Regret over the lateness of my epiphany

Title of the song
Naive expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song

Enumeration of my various transgressive actions
Of insufficient motivation
Realization that these actions led to your departure
And my resultant lack of sleep and appetite

Renunciation of my past insensitive behavior
Promise of my reformation
Reassurance that you still are foremost in my thoughts now
Need for instructions how to gain your trust again

Request for reconciliation
Listing of the numerous tests that I’d perform
Of physical and emotional compensation

Title of the song
Naïve expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song

Acknowledgment that I acted foolishly
Increasingly desperate pleas for your return
Sorrow for my infidelity
Vain hope that my sins are forgivable
Appeal for one more opportunity
Drop to my knees to elicit crowd response
Prayers to my chosen deity
Modulation and I hold a high note

Title of the song
Naïve expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song
