the words she knows, the tune she hums;
Mulder, I want you to close your eyes and say to yourself, There’s no place like…
Plans, Plans and playlists will save my soul: can you still have any famous last words if you’re somebody nobody knows // martyrs never last this long // we together make a limb // the rules have changed since we were nine // i’m trying not to wonder where you are.
I’m bored with words lately.
When I can’t sleep, I flick through my text message inbox:
“those songs i have played 4u r no coincidence. stop listening to shite and listen 2the guitars, over and over and over and over.then when ur battery runs out on ipod,charge it again and listen 2the guitars over and over and over and over.”
“but i don’t sigh for it is an uncomplicated and platonic pure love.”
“SHE IS SUCH A WHORE AND I’M BETTER LOOKING ANYWAY. Ahem. Okay I’m not, but I’m not a whore.”
“I’m taking twenty-three pills a day, and i haven’t had a single interesting side effect. How shit is that?”
“Christ that just killed my sex drive. No offence like. Dwarves are very upsetting.”
“I was stuck in traffic today and glanced at the car in front’s license which was ‘meh’ so I sat there insanely laughing to myself.”
“But seriously, you’re a brilliant fairy. Now fly yourself out over here and come dancing with me.”
“No eesemee, its too sad. I dont want nana to be gone…I cnt stop cryn!”
“It put a smile on my face to read your texts. Just wanted to say that. Not good to know you’re sad (but good to know the truth). Its like that in January, yeah.”
“You’re the 2nd best girl in the world. Sorry but my sister wins.”
“Like This Life except cooler, think of all our fabulousness combined under one roof! Think of the children! FOR GOD’S SAKE, THINK OF THE CHILDREN!”
“It’s screaming out for you Lis. It will be an affair to remember! You’re destined, don’t you feel it?”
“Reeet! Reeet! Reeet!”
“Yeah, ive taken meh-cstacy!”
I’ve got a millionandone things to do before the end of the week, and I’m out of the office this afternoon. But that means it should be Saturday before I know it, surely?
Nevermind. Today is going to be a good day, for it is McDonalds Day, and has been decreed as such since the start of time.
I’VE JUST CRACKED THE TWO GRAND MARK ON MY ADVERTISING BUDGET FOR THIS ISSUE. YAAAAAAY.
