I Love This...

I just KNEW there was someone out there who understood.  I just KNEW it.  Ali thinks I'm deeply deluded though.


Oh gods... she's looking at me with that LOOK again.  *sigh*  I think I'm about to get banned from the computer again...

Song #5

Once I’d tortured Shana with the fact that Billy had sent me HER CD as well as mine… I started to listen to what he had to offer this go round.

A couple of the songs were obviously inspired by her and their relationship which is just the coolest thing ever.  Lines about sapphire eyes or flame-colored hair, and I immediately knew they were about her.  How could you not?

But then, here comes song #5, an up-tempo, fun song.  It’s about relationships gone wrong and crazy women.  I was laughing… and then… the line about psycho brunettes with guns… and then I REALLY started to laugh.

Billy lurves me after all!

So, Anyway...

This redheaded friend of mine calls me.  She's stuck with her new baby and can't get out.  I get these calls a lot these days.

Me: Hello?

Shana: Hey.  What are you doing?

Me: Um... working last time I checked.

Shana: Oh. 

Me (taking a deep breath): Guess what I got in the mail yesterday?

Shana: I give up.

Me: Your man's new CD.  He sent me an early copy.

Shana (shocked): Where's mine?

Me (shrugging into the phone): Dunno.  Sure he mailed them on the same day.  (laughing) I'm listening to Billllly... I'm listening...

Shana (getting angry): ENOUGH already.  You don't need to rub it in.  Need I remind you that it's totally unfair to tease me about Billy?

Me (at wit's end): Okay then, would you prefer that I remind you that my husband is sleeping with your boyfriend then?

Shana (awfully quiet for a minute): No, no I think teasing me about the CD will be fine.  Think I need to go to the mailbox.  Talk to you later.

She hangs up.  I burst into laughter.  Billy had accidentally mailed them both to me.  So, I have her copy and am now holding it hostage.  <insert evil laughter here>

Gods, but she knows she loves me (don't you?  And I can see you out there, reading this, steaming up the monitor with your breath)...

If I Had a Cat…

Blake tells me he would look like this:


I just reminded him that this is why nobody likes him…

I refrained from reminding him that HE was the reason I did jail time the last time I did.  Arentcha proud of me?
