Monday, Yeah.

...hands are tied/ my body bruised/ she's got me with/ nothing to win and/ nothing left to lose/ and you give yourself away/ and you give yourself away....

Every so often, a day rubs me raw, takes a hot wet hook and drags my heart out all over the front of my shirt, which is why I don't wear white.

On these days, I'm grateful for things such as this,

which are testament to too much free time.

What watching (and sharing) this tribute to geekhood says about me is perhaps better left unexamined.

...life's not pretty even though/ I've tried so hard to make it so/ mornings are such cold distress....

"I've gotta hit the road early, because it's going to snow."

Now, you know 'it's going to snow' doesn't mean anything to me.

He sighs, restrains himself -barely- from rolling his eyes.

"Sorry. It's going to snow HERE. Today."

Right. You should hit the road, then.

And, several hours later, it is snowing, today, right here in Baltimore.

Because, honestly, I don't much care if it's snowing (again) in Vermont.
