It Hurts When I Swallow

Deep Throat's identity was revealed today, something I've been looking forward to for quite some time.

Sadly, my Kissinger guess was far off-base at best, but it's cooler that it's a former FBI agent.

I hope someone thinks to ask him what it's like to be named after a blowjob porn. Is blowjob one word? I think so. Maybe I should consult the fine people of the Associated Press.

In other news, work SUCKED like Linda Lovelace. Yeah, that's right. I went for the Deep Throat joke. Don't you wish you were so clever?

I have 17 hours next week at work. Yeah. I'm glad I don't have to do pesky things like eat, pay bills, and put gas in my car. Wait - I do. Fuck.

I didn't get off work until 12:27 a.m. I'm only scheduled until 11:45 p.m. The bright side: more hours! Aye me, sad hours seem long. I hope somebody got that.

Song of the day: I've been DYING without all my Counting Crows CDs, which had still better be in Mannix in Franklin or I'm going to have to start offing people. Anyway, my favorite Counting Crows song ever is "Anna Begins" - I play it for everyone who rides with me (except for now, obviously, because I don't have it on CD - argh!). This is a song that to me represents a point in life that everyone comes to, and Adam Duritz is quite possible the greatest lyricist on the entire planet.

My friend assures me "it's all or nothing"
I am not worried- I am not overly concerned
My friend implores me " for one time only,
make an exception." I am not not worried
Wrap her up in a package of lies
Send her off to a coconut island
I am not worried - I am not overly concerned
with the status of my emotions
"oh", She says, "you're changing."
But we're always changing
It does not bother me to say this isn't love
Because if you don't want to talk about it then it isn't love
and I guess I'm going to have to live with that
but, I'm sure there's something in a shade of gray
or something in between
and I can always change my name if that's what you mean

My friend assures me "it's all or nothing`
But I am not really worried
I am not overly concerned
You try to tell yourself the things you try tell yourself to make
yourself forget
to make yourself forget
I am not worried
"If it's love" she said, "then we're gonna have to think about the
cause she can't stop shaking and I can't stop touching her and.....

This time when kindness falls like rain
it washes her away and Anna begins to change her mind
"these seconds when I'm shaking leave me shuddering
for days" she says.
And I'm not ready for this sort of thing

But I'm not gonna break
And I'm not going to worry about it anymore
I'm not gonna bend. And I'm not gonna break and
I'm not gonna worry about it anymore
It seems like I should say "as long as this is love..."
But it's not all that easy so maybe I should just
snap her up in a butterfly net-
Pin her down on a photograph album
I am not worried
I've done this sort of thing before
But then I start to think about the consequences
Because I don't get no sleep in a quiet room and...

The time when kindness falls like rain
it washes me away and Anna begins change my mind
And every time she sneezes I believe it's love
and oh lord.... I'm not ready for this sort of thing
She's talking in her sleep-it's keeping me awake
And Anna begins to toss and turn
And every word is nonsense but I understand and
oh lord. I m not ready for this sort of thing
Her kindness bangs a gong
It's moving me along and Anna begins to fade away
It's chasing me away. She dissappears, and oh lord I'm not ready for this sort of thing
