Thanking The Police

I heard "Every Breath you Take" by the Police three times today. As soon as I got in my car to go to work, as soon as I was leaving - and once during the day when an actor played me a sweet remix of it off the Sopranos CD - I wish I could recall now what other song it was remixed with.

Not that this is particularly odd or interesting in itself. It's not a song I hear on the radio with that kind of frequency, though. It made me wander off into my head and think for a while. I enjoyed that. The rhythm of the song seemed to be with me all day, but not in that stuck-in-your-head kind of way. It was chill, and I thank the Police for my good day.

Very rarely do I thank police. Mostly I just make disparaging comments about police. *The* Police, though, I feel fairly deserve a thank you from me. And now they have it.

My days are running together, the way trees run together when you're watching them through the window of a train. I feel like I am just having one long day, one long day in a country where I don't speak the language. But, for some reason, it makes me like my life more.

My fortune cookie today read:
"At 20 years of age the will reigns;
at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgment."

I hear you on the days-running-together thing. For me, it's been either "Heart Cooks Brain" by Modest Mouse running through my head during the endless three-week workday, or "You've Got Her In Your Pocket" by the White Stripes. It might be different if the days presented more different stuff, like if a lion got loose at the FDAP offices, or if hot female UPS messengers were showing off nipple piercings every day at 3:30. Instead, days run together.

I can't really complain - if I weren't being a wage slave, I'm sure I'd mostly be wasting my time. And I'd be fatter. Maybe someone should do a study on the relation of leisure time to happiness, and see if there really is a benefit to the whole constant-work/love-of-life thing.

God damn it. I really need to stop posting from Dianna's computer. Or at least pay more attention to which name I'm posting under.

That sucks
now there are holes in threads where people have responded to spam that is now missing and doesn't make sense.

Ahh well, just increases the non-sequitor zeitgiest that is Cementhorizon.
