Apparently much of the world is undergoing a heat wave(which,. I guess, is happening somewhere all the time.) Unfortunately, the UK hasn’t gotten the memo and it’s gray and wet and just generally inhospitable here. This is the sort of weather that makes it way too easy to feel miserable.
So, needless to say, for all my ruminations on discovering my naturally cheery side previously, I’m not having a great day. It’s all rainy, and I’m all broke, and I have a lot of work to do and no motivation and I have to go to work in an hour and talk to grouchy entitled miserable people all night for no real reason but money and bad parenting. Boo.
To top it all off, I went into the bathroom earlier to do what folks do in a bathroom, and there was some random brown blob the size of a £2 coin levitating in the air, slightly above eye level. I got closer, walked around it and AAAAAH! Oh my God!! SPIDER!
Yep. Some spider has decided to build an impressive invisible web in the top two thirds of the bathroom in the only walking space in the place.(It’s a tiny bathroom.) Now, life is not a season of Mad Men, but I can’t help but think that this is somehow a thematic callback to the spider epiphany I had when I first moved to England.
However, this time instead of getting, “stay here and ride the invi sible wave” vibes, I’m getting “who cares about a metaphor! There are spiders! GET OUT!” vibes.
I’ve seen the Amityville Horror. You don’t have to tell me twice.
And today’s lyric is a classic. Don’t know about this rendition though…
