Violent Femmes : Kiss Off (as heard in pub - made me smile)
"You can erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story."
I should NOT have gone to see that film last night...it made me cry. Lots.
It wasn't just the recent situation that did it, well mostly, or the story itself - though that was a large part of it... It just really got me thinking about memories in general, how they fade, and how important it is to hold onto them - even the bad ones which give you a sense of perspective on things...
And it frightened me how some memories MUST be lost along the way - probably once treasured ones - either through old age, alcohol or even alzheimers... Makes me want to keep the memories I have of things - past relationships or whatever - even more. Made me glad I had a livejournal to trigger them even...
And it made me think how all precious moments must be seized... and certainly not thrown away in haste when under pressure or through self-doubt or panic... in case you risk missing out on them as a good experience entirely and waste opportunities for real and long-lasting happiness in life.
Carpe Diem. Carpe Noctem. Carpe Jugulem. (and this applies to everything - not just relationships)
So I cried like a bloody baby, and was very very upset indeed. Fantastic bloody film but not the best timing to have seen it.
missbumpkin was very very kind - took me off to the Nowhere for a coke and got me some tobacco so I could have a much needed cigarette...then we walked up to fart_pellet's for a cup of tea and a chat before she drove me home at midnight.
Thankyou to you both for an utterly fantastic weekend... I've had a marvellous time (despite the snivelling and drunkenbehaviour) - an absolute blast and you are both very lovely and hospitable people. LOVE YOU BOTH!!!
Nope. I would certainly never 'erase' you in any way, shape or form deary. I have too much to lose honey. Pardon my selfishness, if you will of course, bias aside too, naturally. Rachael.... :)
(PS: That movie had me crying too. A wonderful and thought-provoking movie in all aspects and a definite DVD must have. It has even increased my desire to see Jim Carrey as Lemony Snicket, despite my initial trepidations.)
