Wednesday, December 1

I had a wreck today. It was my fault; I spaced out and pulled out in front of someone. I think it's my karmic payback for honking at some Sunday driver the other day. Oy. Phil seems to think the damage may be worse than I had originally thought, when I thought it was just a dent and a scratch and a messed-up fender. It still drives, which is good enough for me. When will this hellish semester be over?

Here's the song that was playing as I plowed into a gargantuan Durango. Phil bought this CD yesterday and I was listening to it for the first time in my car. It's a good song, but I totally ruined my future associations with it.

In the Aeroplane over the Sea
By Neutral Milk Hotel

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

God, that sucks. For about two years I was constantly wrecking my car in the dumbest ways like pulling out in front of people and rear-ending them. I know how you feel. I guess your insurance company already knows, right?
