today's music is brought to you by

Dresden Dolls
Girl Anachronism

1, 2, 3, 4

you can tell
from the scars on my arms
and the cracks in my hips
and the dents in my car
and the blisters on my lips
that I'm not the carefullest of girls

you can tell
from the glass on the floor
and the strings that are breaking
and i keep on breaking more
and it looks like i am shaking
but it's just the temperature
then again
if it were any colder i could disengage
if i were any older i would act my age
but i don't think that you'd believe me
it's not the way I'm meant to be
it's just the way the operation made me

and you can tell
from the state of my room
that they let me out too soon
and the pills that i ate
came a couple years too late
and I've got some issues to work through
there i go again
pretending to be you
that i have a soul beneath the surface
trying to convince you
it was accidentally on purpose

i am not so serious
this passion is a plagiarism
i might join your century
but only on a rare occasion
i was taken out
before the labor pains set in and now
behold the world's worst accident
i am the girl anachronism

and you can tell
by the red in my eyes
and the bruises on my thighs
and the knots in my hair
and the bathtub full of flies
that I'm not right now at all
there i go again
pretending that i'll fall
don't call the doctors
they've seen it all before
they'll say just
let her crash and burn, she'll learn
(the attention just encourages her)

and you can tell
from the full-body cast
that you're sorry that you asked
that you did everything you could
(like any decent person would)
but i might be catching so don't touch
you'll start believing you're immune to gravity and stuff
don't get me wet
because the bandages will all come off

you can tell
from the smoke at the stake
that the current state is critical
well it is the little things, for instance:
in the time it takes to break it she can make up ten excuses:
please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her...

i don't necessarily believe there is a cure for this
so i might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
i was too precarious removed as a cesarean
behold the worlds worst accident
I am the girl ...
I am the girl ...
I am the girl ...

missing in action

Hi guys! I'm currently using someone else's computer today. I've been having problems with my own computer at home so I'm not able to update as often I'd like. I do apologize for that. I miss blogging and tinkering with photoshop so hopefully I get the computer up and running ASAP!!!!

quote of the day

"this life that you and i are living,
it's a scrapbook in the making."
                                               - november starlings, 
                                                 trembling blue stars

haaaarrd habit to break!

Ok I've finally broken that nasty habit of NAIL BITING!

After 20+ years of self-mutilation, I was finally able to tell myself to stop. And lookit that. It wasn't really that difficult after all. :)

To celebrate, I had my nails "stamped" by a dear friend of mine, Debbie. I think she really did an amazing job and I loooooooove it. Even the boyfriend likes it. Yaaay!
