It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

God I love this woman's music

I'm sitting here listening to Alanis Morissette, and you know, the fact that her music was the freaking SOUNDTRACK of my second marriage, the entire relationship damn near from the day we met until he waltzed out the door with the dog really should have told me something, it really should have.

But we live and we learn, right? What's good is what I have NOW, that big fuzzy man in the queen size bed about four feet from me right now. And what I had then? That was insanity, that was unhealthy, that was abusive and horrible and thank the Lord it's over.

Thank you, Alanis, for giving the music that I was deaf to the real message of at the time. :)

How 'bout getting off of these antibiotics
How 'bout stopping eating when I'm full up
How 'bout them transparent dangling carrots
How 'bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you india
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How 'bout me not blaming you for everything
How 'bout me enjoying the moment for once
How 'bout how good it feels to finaly forgive you
How 'bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you india
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it
Was the moment I touched down

How 'bout no longer being masochistic
How 'bout remembering your divinity
How 'bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How 'bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you india
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

Borderline symptom of the day: peacefulpeaceful
Earworm of the moment: Alanis - Thank You

I just rewatched Dogma today--twice, actually, because there'z two different commentary tracks on it, and I watched both--while I was animating today. And, you know...she's, like, in it an' stuff.

She's God. :D

...and yet. ;)

Actually, though I didn't know it was her at the time, I saw her on You Can't Do That On Television back in the day, when Nickelodeon was new.

When it comes to her music...ehhh...she might be great if you like that genre, but it's really not my thing. From what I've heard of it, you couldn't reasonably call it "upbeat", which is pretty much the first criterion on the list of "What Keight Likes in Music", so...

Nope, not upbeat.

When I told my best friend, ten years ago, that I was into Alanis, she was like:

"Isn't she the angry lady?"


Yeah...basically, if it doesn't make me want to do this , chances are good, I'm just not going to be into it. There'z a few songs out there that aren't all bouncy and full of energy that I've latched onto, but...they still tend to be happy ballads. Heh.

Funny you should mention her today.

I woke up this morning hearing "Out is Through" in my head. It totally characterizes what my life is about, just now.
