telling kirsty about my day in a nuthell

today i met up with a friend who isnt doing so well in her relationship cos he lives far away, so she asked me to make a compilation CD of songs to send him, and we met today so i could give her the CD and she could mail it away to him.
one of her friends 'tiger lilly' bumped into us and we chattered a bit, and she was very quiet and a bit.... umm... airy? like... yeah. odd.

then we went on the post office. at first we couldnt find padded bags so i left the line to find one and brought it back, bumping into people and things. then i picked up a book that was for sale on the table beside me, read the title aloud, opened it, turned to the first page and read *ahem* "one day the little white dog was walking down montgomery street" and read to my friend and the other people in the line,

at the end of the page i made the bbbbrrrrriiiiiiiing sound and announced to turn the page. after a few pages it was our turn and we stepped up, and she paid for her mail.

as she was filling in the address etc at the desks i sat in the chair by the door and looked up at the surveillence monitor and yelled 'hey im on tv!' and danced in my seat. I ended my 'show' by thanking the academy.

after a side trip for smoothies, where we flipped thru the empty pages of the birthday cake display book discussing which invisible cakes looked the best, my friend went to work and i set off for the shop. as i went to go thru the swingy gate thing i saw an eldery man struggling with two carts stuck together.

i put my hand on his shoulder and said id help. i separated and dispersed carts to about 3 people after him before deciding it was time to go inside.

when i walked thru the swingy gate, a girl was waiting at the checkout and was staring at me. our eyes met and then we looked away and when i looked back again as i passed her she was looking at me again. I looked around a bit, shrugged, gave a little wave and said "uh hi?". she sorta giggled and said hi back, and i shrugged her off and kept walking thinking, how very strange.

when i left the store i passed my friends shop, stepped in, blew her kiss, gave a little wave, and walked on to the library to pick up a book carly had spotted for me.

The phone rings in the dead of night.
Hi, Ma? Yes its me. No, no I'm alright...
I know it's been awhile since we spoke heart to heart
but I been thinking tonight and it's a little bit hard
to say after so long that I'm not sorry at all.
Yes, that's right, I'm not. Not sorry at all.

No, Ma. Wake up please, you're not listening to me.
I said I'm not, hear me? Not. I just had to be free.
I know I broke your heart when I'd promised I wouldnt,
but I was young, mother, then and I thought that I couldnt.

Okay so I didnt leave in the best of moods.
I admit that. I know, it mustnt have been good.
But you had him, your son, to lean on, to speak.
Ever since he was young, he's held you up, weak.
When I left I wanted to take him too,
If not to save him then at least to hurt you.
And while I was out, getting drunk, getting sold
The torment you gave him put his own life on hold.

When you fell down, he took your hand.
He carried you though he could barely stand.
And what reward then, did you give him sweet mother?
But to punish one child for the sake of another.

I'm not coming home, Ma. Not now. Not ever.
The way that you think will scar me forever.
And while I cry for the baggage you gave me to stack.
I'm cowardly enough to run on, not looking back.

Sure, I'm a hypocrite, I could save him and more.
But I've no nerve left to come back to your door.
Yep I'm a big girl now, how far I've come
to turn, drop my head, tuck tail and run.

Ma? Are you there? Are you even still awake?
I guess it was silly calling so late.
And maybe this would've worked better if I'd chosen to write
Or if I'd dialled your number...

...before I started talking tonite.

strike that.
reverse it.

a story

a sexy young girl, just gone 21 years of age, stepped out of her friend's house where she had been visiting and walked to her car parked out front. across the road 3 younger schoolgirls, all no more than 15 years of age, were waving madly at passing cars and calling out 'hello!!' excitedly and giggling at the resulting confused expression that crossed their victims' faces.

as the first, sexier girl got into the car she heard the young schoolgirls approaching. she turned the key in the ignition and wound down her window and reversed out of the guest driveway.

the schoolgirls called out from across the road "HELLO!" and waved.

the sexy girl immediately called back 'Oh hi!! how are you?? how's billy? is he doing good?'

the schoolgirl's smiles faded.

'has he gotten over that nasty bout of the crabs yet?'

they stood there dumbfounded.

'tell him that the cream *will* help him, wont you?'

they looked at each other.

the first sexy girl laughed quietly to herself, then dropped her little red car into first gear and drove home to blog about it.

to sleep, perchance to dream

now entering my 35th hour without sleep.

it just seems.... i dunno.... pointless?

i went to see "doc" again today. i've decided i dont like him.

i've also decided that i like the band Antigone Rising after hearing some of their songs whilst surfing about.

Explanation: i searched for 'bloodshot' to get the above pic and hit their page cos one of their songs is called Bloodshot. I like them :) You can hear some of their stuff here.

what was i talking about? oh yeah, my session with Doc.
i'd rather go see a lady doc. he mumbles alot and gives me this look i dont like. not only that, but he's a bit dismissive too and im awkward talking to him. and anyont that knows me knows that talking is something i dont often have trouble with. he just makes me feel stupid. especially when he overexplains things and actually ends up making them seem more complicated than they are, and its only because i've somewhat studied the sort of things he talks about that i follow him at all.

ok, feeling kinda... i dunno... "fuzzy" now.

i'm a healthy bunny - stroke my long furry ears and play with my silky whiskers. heeheehee that got me thru the day friday.
sorry, thats a bit of a visual joke Ember and i had. it is funny tho.

I saw either a large bunny or a small hare run across the farm on Sunday. he was beautiful.
