what the fuck was i thinking

"love grows in me like a tumor,
parasites bent on devouring its host.
i'm developing my sense of humor,
till i can laugh at my heart between your teeth,
till i can laugh at my face beneath your feet."

fuck it, i'm tired of this black and bleak mood i've been in. i need to reunite with my sense of humor. i need to remember all the things that i love, and how they all remind me why i need to carry on.

Maybe this will help turn things around:

Two unemployed guys are talking. One says, "I'm going to become a lion tamer."

The other replies, "That's crazy, you don't know nothing about no lion taming."

"Yes I do!"

"Well, OK, answer me this. When one of those lions comes at you all roaring and biting, what you gonna do?"

"Well, then I take that big chair they all carry, and I stick it in his face until he backs down."

"Well, what if the lion takes that big paw, and hooks the chair with them big claws, and throws that chair out of the cage? What do you do then?"

"Well, then I takes that whip they all carry, and I whip him and whip him until he backs down."

"Well, what if that lion bites that whip with his big teeth, and bites it in two? What you gonna do then?"

"Well, then I take that gun they all carry, and I shoot him."

"Well, what if that gun doesn't work? What will you do then?"

"Well, then I pick up some of the shit that's on the bottom of the cage, and I throw it in his eyes, and I run out of
the cage."

"Well, what if there ain't no shit in the bottom of the cage? What you gonna do then?"

"Well, that's dumb. Cause if that lion comes at me, and he throws the chair out of the cage, and he bites the whip in two, and my gun don't work, there's going to be some shit on the bottom of that cage, you can bet on that."

i love this song. absolutely love it.

i hope you are feeling better . . . i think spring brings the black dog 'round, for whatever reason. sometimes i feel like i "should" feel happy in the spring--more light and all the greening of things--but a lot of the time i actually get the blues. maybe i have reverse SAD! : )
