Dear old flist,

I'm doing the inevitable friends-list paring, so if you feel that you've been removed for no good reason or you'd like to stick around even if we don't talk anymore, that is cool and let me know. (Comments are screened.)

Otherwise, I probably took you off because A) we don't really know each other anymore or B) you don't update very often or C)... okay, there isn't a C. Okay, actually there is a C, but if you really want to know about it, you can send me an email.

Many happy returns, etc etc, nothing personal, etc etc, and I don't know why I have to explain because it is my journal after all, but I'm fussy like that.

Inquiring minds, etc: Where do you guys download your Doctor Who episodes?

(novenarik, you might have to be suckered into watching a couple with me, because Catherine Tate is a regular this season and she is BRILLIANT.)

This morning on the train, a middle-aged woman with a white teddy bear in her arms sat down next to me and loudly announced to nobody in particular that "Elvis Presley's teddy bear was going for a ride on the train."

So.

How was your morning?


ETA (4 PM): We opened the windows because it's such a nice day. Down on the street, on the train platform, there is a quartet playing "Paint It Black"-- on a trombone, a banjo, a drum, and an accordion.

Also a bad idea: listening to The Last Five Years at work.

Triply bad: listening to "Nobody Needs To Know" for the first time in probably a year and a half. I've refused to listen to it for such a long time-- I'd make people skip it if we were listening to it in the car. I feel like my bones go cold and it always makes me cry. It just... hurts to hear. It hurts like I hurt a couple years ago. (Was it almost two now? Sometimes it doesn't seem that long.)

The way he talks about going into "battle" with Cathy and that he has to put on his armor and the way he talks about how she invades him when he just needs a little space... and the lengths he goes to so he can get away from her need to be near him... it's just too familiar. That Cathy loves him so much and so close that she drives him away and she can't understand how it failed... it's just so familiar. And then the repetition from "Shiksa Goddess" at the end of the song, using almost the same words to Elise that he used to Cathy when he first met her... God.

That Jamie's success hurts Cathy and that she hates that it does, that he is constantly leaving her behind because he can't see that it hurts her... his desperation to have a career and reach his own potential... his inability to see why she can't do the same... her jealousy and frustration, his apathy... and through it all they still try so hard to love each other. It's just Jamie that gives up first.

Now we all see why this musical is important to me, I guess.

Not a good day to brave that fear-- what was I even thinking?

This show is going to be so hard if we end up doing it. It's going to be so amazing, but so difficult. I'm going to have to revisit a lot of old hurts.

Today is a day that God can seriously have back. I'm sicker than sick can be-- I think I have strep throat, I am all achy and hurty and weak-- and then the news about Heath Ledger. My brother broke it to me when I finally struggled out of bed twenty minutes ago.

It really breaks my heart. I'm not ashamed to say that I cried when I heard; I always cry at things like that, but he was a celebrity who seemed to stand for good things and was, more importantly, a respectable guy. It was very unexpected.

clareistotle said something which I found very astute, quoted by her boyfriend doe_witch: "...as Clare remarked, you just sort of get used to x person being around. It's unnerving to have x person be young, great at what they do, and then taken out of the cultural consciousness."

The first person I thought of was hp_speculation, who is incredibly fond of Heath. Hope you're doing okay, my love, or at least as well as can be expected.

I know it's sort of cryptic and dramatic. I'm sorry. It's just that it's easier than writing an actual entry for right now.

Jory shared these with me last night before we went out to see Stardust (again). I wanted to share them with you guys because I thought they were so beautiful. The first one especially is my favorite-- watch it all the way to the end, it's worth it. And the second one is just plain fantastic.
