Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

Once again the good folks at Marlboro are the first ones to wish me a happy birthday. This time it was a deck of cards instead of a pewter bic case. The cards came with a couple extra cards that had rules and hints for playing Texas hold-em, which are only useful to me in that they'll enable me to at least fake giving a shit when someone somewhere inevitably starts yammering on about poker, which I just never got into. I mean sure, Rounders is cool and everything, but whatever.

-- I brought my umbrella with me to work today, the victim of a somewhat erroneous forecast. It looks better outside now than it did this morning when I left the house.

-- I've had the weirdest feeling all week; a feeling that I can barely begin to articulate. It feels like I need -- need -- to get away from my life and get out of my skin. Because I'm trapped and even tho' the bars are far enough away that I can't see them they're still there, and if I don't get out of this cage, I'm going to die. Just as sure as I'm sitting here writing these words, I'll die. But not if I get out in time.

Except I don't think there's anywhere to go, so I might very well be fucked. Which one would think would lead to feelings of fatalism and defeat. Except no, because I think I'll try to get out anyway. Don't worry if you don't understand what I'm talking about. Quite honestly, neither do I.

-- There is nothing on God's great and verdant earth greater than this. If you say there is, you lie.

America's just there to make me laugh.

-- Rednecks get arrested for stealing the money they claim they found in a hole in the ground. Man, that is just the textbook definition of 0wn3d. The picture makes it at least twice much better.

-- Runaway bride is still runnin', but her family won't let her go. Once again, my favorite bit from the article: "Belcher said searchers found sweat pants in Duluth, sweatshirts in two nearby towns and some hair. The clump of hair was found in a business complex in the Duluth area, Belcher said. The hair was consistent with Wilbanks' hair color and appeared to have been cut, Belcher said." There's someone in the circle of people who're so desperate to find her that this woman does NOT want to see again. My money's on her pops. Any takers?
