I got another message from Cassie the other day. Hi Cassie! It was a really nice message. All the messages she sends me are really nice.
I don't really know Cassie. I've never met her. Cassie might not even be her real name. I know her only through the internet, through this weird little blog-world that fascinates and terrifies me all at once. We are aware of each other because we both like to take pictures of shadows. You can see hers here. She also has a thing for Norwegian singers, apparently, which means she's a dirty, lusty lady just like me so no wonder we get along so well. I would love to steal her URL fifty years from now, although I think she's using it unfairly. It's way too early for that. Old lady? Really? I don't think so, Cassie...
Anyway, she asked if I had burnt out on blogging since my thirty day marathon last month, and my only reply was well, yes I have, as a matter of fact, I've burnt out on life COMPLETELY over the past month and a half and I'm wondering if it isn't time to go find a job pitting olives or labeling cheese somewhere, somewhere where I'LL NEVER HAVE TO SPEAK TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING AGAIN, something, you know, away from the general public, just so I don't spend the rest of my days locked up for mass murder or something crazy (yet completely logical) like that.
Yet I'm stuck behind a bar, where my very livelihood depends on pretending to be nice to people. Kill me now. I beg you.
The other night, over fancy beer and trail mix, I expressed to D.G. my desire to go "Down the Line" with a baseball bat and he slowly backed away with a pleasant, yet terrified look on his face.
"Another beer, wanderlust? Or three?"
Yes, I'm still here, but you really don't want to hear from me right now. Really. Trust me. It's best for everyone. There's no telling what might come out of my mouth right now. Next thing you know I'll be strung up by my earlobes in some whacked-out republic no one's ever heard of for insulting their version of Allah and I'll end up holding all of YOU responsible for it, because I'm rational like that.
Give me a minute to stop hating everyone and everything and I'll be back with random, senseless photos and postings any day now, thank you very much. (most likely when motherfucking Chri$tma$ is over) Also, if I'm feeling nice in the upcoming day or two, (that means don't piss me off, people) I'll tell you about my dinner at Dovetail. Now THAT gives you a reason to wake up tomorrow, doesn't it? Mmm, Dovetail...
