I can only say that The Smiths' "How Soon is Now" is something like a spiritual experience for me. I blasted it on the way to work and after I listened to it I felt like life was divine and I could lay on the grass all day and be fine with the very little that I'd accomplished. However, then the next song came on and if one thing can be said for The Smiths it is that their music is not uplifting and I promptly felt depressed.
That might be tied in with other things going on as well. I am having my hair chopped off today. I have never, ever been one who has grown attached to my hair. It has, however, reached extraordinary lengths these days out of my simple procrastination in making the appointment to get it cut. Today I was drying it and then stood there stroking it all self-absorbedly and wistfully. I think my stylist is going to be appalled when I tell her to cut it all off. She's all about the long hair. And I am not. Anyway I might miss it for a minute, but the convenience of the shorter 'do will be so worth it.
Also I am preparing to accept a job today with another company. I am sad about leaving some of my friends behind. I am not one of these types who stays in touch so... I suck.
