...But it's Making a Stop on April First

My 2005 calendar is made up of some of Roy Lichtenstein's cooler comics-style pop art.

I flipped the page today, and this was the image that greeted me.

Now, here is a brief assessment of my life at the present moment:
  • No job.
  • Slimmish job prospects.
  • Dwindling funds.
  • No boyfriend.
  • Slimmish romantic prospects.
  • Moving back with parents in awful, isolated suburb in one month.
  • People I know my age and younger are happily married and happily employed and happily shitting out baby after baby after baby, and I still only have my G1 license.
The way this girl looks is the way I feel.

Could everyone who is secretly in love with Sofi PLEASE TELL HER ALREADY!

Gentlemen (and ladies), get your shit together and call, okay? Stop being so afraid of rejection and voice your secret crush on the world's coolest journalism student.

Because you ain't gonna get anywhere with her when she's living in Scarberia. And it will be your fault.

Pick up that phone.

Thank you.

Naw, I gave up on Montreal a little while ago. Thanks, Daph.

But - if anybody in TORONTO is secretly in love with me...

"Just thinkin' about Tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow,
Till there's none!
The sun'll come out Tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow
Come what may
I love ya
You're always a day away"

If dirty orphans don't inspire you, nothing will.

I remember on you oldoldold blog you had this rant/poem thing about who you were and what you were into, and when I didn't know anything about you I read it and knew you were swell. And I still think you are.

Warm Fuzzies,

Awwww! So much love! Thanks, guys.

I know you're all pretty much in the same boat as me. I find that extremely comforting. (Misery loves company?)

For the morbidly curious, here is the slightly embarrassing rant/poem that Susan was referring to:

Note especially the Who I Want to Marry section. AHEM. (Plus ca change, s'pas?)

Today I asked a girl that I used to live with what married life is like. That threw me for a bit of a loop as soon as I'd said it, but it was ultimately no big deal. Especially since married life is treating her very well.

I totally know what you're going through, though. Not because I'm worried about my own career or love life, but because I remember what it was like to be a few weeks away from heading into the real world. It's scary, sure. But bear in mind that there are people with jobs and marriages who envy you right now, because every day of their life is pretty much the same.

Daphna: It would be too weird of me to hit on Sofi, as I'm sure she'd agree. But you've inspired me to get off my ass about something else I've been too timid to do.

I, too, only have my G1 license. I'm not too concerned though. Cars are overrated. They pump filth into the world and kill too many people for my liking anyway. I would like to think I will encounter a trio of concubines who will carry me around on a gilt ottoman for transportation.

Dear Creepy Stalker,

Call me?


P.S. If you're doing your job right, you already have the number.
