How to be in a million places at once...


How to be in a million places at once...well the answer is to keep on going. Don't blink, don't pause, don't hesitate, just do. Easier said then done when the world is basically fighting you the whole night through.

My last post was entitled "The Four Horsemen of the Apolcaplyse came and they didn't bring flowers" and that is the only way I could describe the aftermath of Saturday. Seriously, when I was driving home on Sunday morning there was debris everywhere in the road, road blocks, the fire-house sirens going off every other hour, cops everywhere, darkened houses, tow trucks, people rushing to the super markets; it looked like a twister had gone through the Rockland County. This sounds weird saying it but I guess I have inspiration now for my zombie novel. Forget about the snow, endless rain is worse. It's going to be pretty easy to write about world after a zombie raid because I've seen an aftermath in the twilight of morning...

Somehow til the morning I didn't grasp how serious the weather problem actually was. I was everywhere on Saturday. You know the movies where is actually only a day but a MILLION things happen, where your left with your head spinning half way around? Well those movies would be the PG version of my weekend.

The lunch with Drummer Boy will be another post because he has completely confused the hell out of me to the point where I'm just dumbfounded. But other than that, I went to see a concert of a friend drenched cuz I ran arcound Nyack, NY in all the rain and saw the fire-trucks wizz by me with a fury. Then went home to dry off...then went to see another concert at another bar but it was cancelled. Saw the Mess at a party, who just happened to be at that SAME bar ironically....yeah that's another post. (I don't know how worlds collide so badly sometimes).


Then I went to help bail out the lead singer's basement of the first concert I saw. It was a disaster. There was soo much water everywhere and it kept coming in. Then he kicked us all out and I wound up spending time with the drummer of the band, a friend that I never really got enough quality alone time with. Oh did I mention he's another drummer?? I DON'T know how I keep meeting drummers???


BUT somehow in the madness I wound up with a very cute & long kiss goodnight from him. He put his hand on the side of my face and turned my face to his. I felt like the world just fell away. None of the drama of the day had happened, none of the upset mattered, (Not even the lingering hands of the Mess on my hip, don't worry I'll write about that), the sirens outside were silent to my ears, and all I thought about was this new guy's cologne and sweet kiss. I opened my eyes and he smiled at me. It was a moment to come up for air from the insanity.

Roll credits...lol. I have some interesting posts that I need to write this week because I don't understand any of it. Maybe you guys can help me sort out the non-sense. The pictures are mostly from the movie, "Garden State". Love that movie. It's still raining...I'm so incredibly tired...I'll be back tomorrow. I can't get that goodnight kiss out of my mind...*Dreaming*

Would you have wanted that goodnite kiss to have lasted 3 hours? That's really a good nite.

Endless rain is so powerful.

Wow, you make bailing out a basement sound wonderful and romantic with that kiss. Why wasn't it the same for me?

Seriously, aside from the weather & the Mess, sounds like a great evening.

Christopher said...

I guess I shouldn't complain that it was drizzling the last few days then eh? It's great to find inspiration like that, sounds like a good experience in a chaotic environment - from a creative point of view.

Whohoo a nice kiss to seal the night! I am so happy for you. Glad the dreaming is becoming a reality and sounds like a wonderful time!

Heather Taylor said...

Wow, I love how the kiss ended your day! You must expand on this post, I would love to hear more about it!

I only thought that insanity/magical happenings only were found in movies, but you prove that the storm motif happens in reality too! first off, the amount of rainfall you're getting in NY is awful and saddening. try and stay warm and dry!

as for the boy dilemmas-wow that was quite the night. I guess the third man is always the charm right? I'm definitely intrigued/hopeful for how things develop with the last guy...
