Adventure Tiemz

I went on an adventure. Also known as a "quick errand." Yeah.

So I realized over dinner that I'd used the last of my milk on Friday before I left. SAD PANDA, 'cause it was six o'clock and raining and I didn't want to forge out into the wilderness for Walgreens. Also, I'm lazy.

So I didn't.

Which, as it turned out, was a FATAL ERROR.

Why? Because I realized just after nine that I FORGOT TO GET MORE SOAP while I was at home this weekend.

Fatal error.

So I checked the Walgreens Store Locator site and then hopped up and headed out, armed with my trusty umbrella (which thank heavens was unnecessary) and my equally-trusty iPod (which my mother would kill me for if she knew I was walking around this city at that hour with my extremely conspicuous white headphones plugged into my ears).

And then the Walgreens was CLOSED. The site said they were open 'til ten, but the sign on the door said EIGHT.

THEY LIED TO ME.

So I tried Longs a few blocks down. They'd closed at five. Lots of expletives were uttered in my head. I walked the mile (shallowly uphill, though it's, um, "cold," so it was actually kind of nice) to the other Walgreens, ready to KILL SOMEONE if it was closed, too.

Which, thankfully, was not the case.

I seriously would have beaten something with my umbrella. Seriously. Like. Jesus. Really?!

Anyway, I got my damn milk and my damn soap and am now not studying for my damn Shakespeare final. Still. Because I'm stupid.

On the upside, I have a tendency to rediscover a song after having encountered new characters circumstances, and it's always kind of wonderfully revelatory in a small, geeky way. And today I had my iPod on shuffle, which doesn't happen often for no real reason other than that I tend to binge on larger quantities of things at any given time.

I've had this CD since I was thirteen, and I've probably listened to this song well over a thousand times... But never in an L/Light context. So:

"Sugarcoat"
Breaking Benjamin
(this is what "BB" used to mean to me back when I was young and naive XD)

It started again
Claiming a friend
I couldn't be
I've never been
I'm all alone
Out in the cold
I'll never know
Your sugarcoat

You're ready to blow
You're ready to go
But I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
Is just as sweet as I am

(No)
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red
(No)
What did you say?
Willing to drown in a tidal wave
(No)
Take me away
Let me believe that you're on your way
(No)
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red

I'm on the floor
Battered and bored
You've got a taste
I can't ignore
I'm all alone
Out in the cold
I'll never know
Your sugarcoat

You're ready to blow
You're ready to go
But I'll never know
Your sugarcoat
Is just as sweet as I am


(No)
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red
(No)
What did you say?
Willing to drown in a tidal wave
(No)
Take me away
Let me believe that you're on your way
(No)
Look what you did
Suck on your lies 'til your eyes turn red

Red
Your eyes are red


Listen to it here and scare your family! :D ...unless you're eltea, in which case apparently they're your brother's favorite band anyway. 8D

Really, though. I'm very tempted to fic it up. Just... the possibilities...

After I, uh, finish all your Christmas presents.

There's that "stupid" thing again. XD

Speaking of which, I still haven't sent the two cards I owe. I PROMISE I WILL. I'm just... swamped, and getting to that stage of swamped-ness where I refuse to do anything, because the swamp is so heavy I feel like I'm immobilized and just squander the time instead of draining the swamp.

If you'll permit me a very odd metaphor that makes me think of Florida. XD

If anybody else wants a Christmas... New Year... Valentine's Day... Judgment Day card covered in stupid doodles, just message me your address, and I will oblige, because I really love you guys. XD

YEAH...
