Stuff, doing its best to throw me by Happening, as it's wont to do.

Last couple of days were full of ups and downs. There was good music and bad and good moments and bad and hugs and cold silences and all that sort of thing. Life, really. ~s~
I get back and LJ is the same, so is e-mail. It's not my fault, damn it; I reserve the right to catch hold of a chance when it passes. Don't like it, get moving. ~shrug~

Unexpected things happening? Oh, yes. Got lots of those, governor. I present, for your inspection...
Exhibit A - Someone I thought was having a fairly good night and who I thought I was getting along with in a worthwhile fashion stopped me the next day to apologise for the entire previous night. Which makes absolutely no sense to me, but hey. I'm sorry they weren't having as good a night as I thought. ~shrug~

Exhibit B - I got to know, again, for a while, what it's like to hold someone. I've been held a lot recently but haven't held anyone since the October Night Of Doom, and then I was only holding a memory. But this was real. And I got to know, again, for a while, what it's like to feel wanted. Not a bad thing. ~smile~ Words stay with me.
And I looked in the mirror and I thought, "you look like you've been fucked through a hedge backwards". And I did. But I hadn't been. ~s~

Exhibit C - by far the strangest, really. I got home to London, turned on my computer, and heard a strange noise from the street. I shrugged, until I heard it again and realised it was inside my house, and it sounded like Gir from Invader Zim. And then it sounded like a very lost kitten. Baffled, without moving from my desk, I called a questioning "miaow?" through the door, and got a "miew" back. So I got up and went out of the room, and there, on the stairs, was a large grey cat.
She must have been here a while but she'd done no damage; I had to put her out, unfortunately. Nobody knows whose she is - probably a stray from the empty houses across the road. When I picked her up to take her outside she was very frightened, but she didn't scratch or anything, just looked at me with nervous eyes, like [see Exhibit A] can do.
Very, very strange.

And now I'm home. And very alone. But not for long...asrana arrives tomorrow...~hugs~

"If I could only taste one drop of your unhappiness..."

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

  • (no subject)

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
