I went to Tower records last night. The one that one of the Toms told me was going out of business. They don't look anything near out of business. They look quite healthy. I checked out the not porn girly magazines but Stuff, FHM and Maxim didn't really have hot chicks for me to subject hoppie too. Stuff has Pam Anderson. Again! Time for the yearly Pam Anderson cover, is it? No offense, lady, but you're much sexier as Stripperella. I'm just saying.
Anyway, I found a bunch of stuff I wanted, but I limited myself to three new CDs. Dr. Demento's Hits from Outer Space. I FINALLY own "Banned from Argo" (yes, I know anyone (Greg, Tril) could have given it to me any time, but no one ever offered. *sniff* But now it's mine. Hoppie had never actually heard the song. That has been rectified. It has some standards like "Star Trekkin'" and "Star Drek" and "Star Trips" but some I hadn't heard before like "The Ballad of William Robinson" and "Do the Picard" which is hysterical. I also picked up another comedy double CD from the people who did the "Ballad of Irving." I haven't really had a chance to listen to it. And a Pet Shop Boys CD. (do they count as emo? probably not.) I've been craving, "What Have I Done to Deserve This" for awhile.
chasing time from hour to hour,
I pour the drinks and crush the flowers. It speaks to the Frank/Ali pieces of me.
Hee hee. I was about leave this section without actually getting to the headphones. They're earplug headphones. I can't hear a thing in the out there. I'm in heaven. Of course now I resent all distractions that make me take them out, because it takes a minute or two to get them seated to where a minor movement doesn't pull them out. But they feel great on my ears and the sound quality is wonderful.
So I'm listening to the radio and I hear this advertisement talking about the Mass legislature gay marriage discussion. At first I think it's news (because I am listening to news radio after all.) Then the woman starts talking about how Scandinavia has legalized same-sex marriage and it led to destruction of marriage and now all these kids are in broken homes. Have you looked around you woman? Even if everybody in all the Scandinavian countries was involved in a gay marriage that caused their original marriage to be broken up and their partnerships abanonded, or they had kids within their gay marriage and then the partnership was dissolved, would it even approach the divorce statistics for marriage in the US?
Then to add to the histrionics, she says, "These are the same judges who just decided that having sex with your step-child isn't incest." You know what? It isn't. It's still rape, statutory rape and a number of things that sick, wrong, and illegal, but it's not incest. It's the little things that piss you off, as Rodney Carrington would say.
Then she sent us all to her website, which of course I don't think I got right, because I looked it up and got the wrong one. I think I used .com instead of .org.
Last night at dinner with the best people in my life, rocker and Lori, we were talking about our worst nightmares, well specifically Lori's worst nightmare, and rocker said, "It would have been if rocker and I had gotten married" and Lori would have had to marry hoppie, as my second. 8-).
We were out at dinner at some point shortly after hoppie and I had decided to get married. And I made a toast to my upcoming marriage...and struck by feelings of sheer deviltry, I said, "to rocker" and I gave him a particularly loving look. And Lori just kind of gaped with this stunned horrified expression. Rocker still teases her about it. (obviously because I just described it...) and rocker said something like, "dude, you just married 'cause you didn't want to help her move her stuff."
And he said, "Well, if I'd refinanced the house already, I'd have been able to afford it..."
And I said, "My parents offered to help me move..."
And rocker said, "Several times, I'm sure."
and we all laughed, chuckle, chuckle, ya'll and the conversation moved on.
This is a roundabout way of getting there, but I was wondering what our lives would be like if we'd decided to break up instead of getting married.
Hoppie would probably be playing SW:Galaxies with rocker.
I'd still be doing the same things I am doing, but more of it. More time to go out Lori, Jill and lensedqso. More time for Frank, and I probably would still be doing Frank, and probably more besides since my lj addition comes from other sources.
I wonder if there's an alternative universe Marci wondering what would have happened if she and hoppie had gotten married.
Enough idle speculation. Back to life.
The Sudden Departure
Random Brutal Love Master (RBLMf)
Sweet. Dear. Loving. At Gate 18. Final call.
You are The Sudden Departure.
You've been in a lot of serious relationships. More than a few have ended ugly. Uglily. Whatever. Our guess is that you're a really fantastic girl who doesn't really know what she wants, and you've broken a few hearts as a result. You fall for people easily, and you enjoy the feeling of falling in love, but once you're there, either boredom or the old "grass is greener" syndrome sets in. The mind wanders, and with it goes the flesh. And then the toiletries.
Your exact opposite:
Deliberate Gentle Sex Dreamer
We know you're not the classic "love 'em and leave 'em" type, at least not in a purely sexual sense. You have too many serious bonding tendencies for that. But even though you're theoretically looking to settle down, you don't settle long on one person. "Serial monogamist" is probably something you hear a lot. "Emotionally loose" is another way to put it. To the poor guys eating your dust and sniffing your panties, it doesn't really make much difference. Of course, it's not really your fault that people get hurt. You have every right to move on when you choose.
ALWAYS AVOID: The Backrubber, The Gentleman
CONSIDER: The Vapor Trail, someone just like you
Try it yourself?
That is actually both not what I was expecting and oddly true. I thought I'd burned much of that out of my personality when I decided it was time to stop induling in my 9 year long one-night-stand with hoppie and get serious about marriage and building a family.
