500 DAYS OF SUMMER

Figured out whom Joseph Gordon-Levitt reminds me of. The liver-eating mutant on the "X-files."And what kind of name is "Zooey?" What's it short for, "Zookeeper?" And why does she dress like something out of the '60's?

Tom reminds me of myself. Doesn't want closure, wants to get back together with Summer, whom he needlessly worships and has made it clear she doesn't want to be anyone's GF.
SOPHIE'S MORE ENVIABLE CHOICE

So as all my Christmas Day plans fell through and I had a bunch of Blockbuster coupons, I decided to be Jewish – see a movie and eat Chinese. Saw “It’s Complicated” in Chinatown. People walked out of the theatre as though they had just seen “Schindler’s List.” While I might not have agreed with Meryl Streep’s decision at the end, it was a happier ending than “Sophie’s Choice.” And nice to know we DO have a choice.

Rented “500 Days of Summer.” In the first film the people were older than me, in this one they were young enough to be my children. I asked myself if I am as annoying as some of the people in this movie and cringed at the thought that I might be. Again it’s nice to know that maybe we are capable of and entitled to more than we think. And that we DO have choices and that usually things work out.
WEEK 52

The last week of the year -- not sure whether I miscounted or what. Not a bad week -- recovering from the storm and realizing maybe there is something to this peace on earth good will towards men thing.

I had a nice if unconventional Christmas, which is good considering what I hear about other people's holidays. Maybe it's our turn to have a merry Christmas.

'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Actually ‘tis Christmas now. Had a great Christmas Eve. Got a card from someone on whom I had given up and a $20.00 Starbucks gift card from J. Also I had an attractive client who smelled good and gave me a nice tip.

Made it to midnight mass – they sang “For Unto Us A Child is Born” and the priest preached a pretty good sermon. Lit a candle for G who asked when the church is gonna burn.

Understandably George didn’t want to go out this morning because of the threat of freezing rain. If my evening plans fall through I will be Jewish – eat Chinese and take in a movie.

BLESSED SOLSTICE/CHRISTMAS

Finished almost all my Christmas shopping, sent out almost ten per cent of my cards. And I realize Christmas is not a curse. Having family and friends to write to/shop for and parties to attend are a good thing, even if you have to bring a covered dish to the pot luck.

Not having family and friends are much worse.

ON BEING AN ASSHOLE

Embassy Suites has free HBO, so I made sure to take advantage of that. Saw part of "Taken" with Liam Neeson. In one scene Neeson is making a deal with a French pimp. The pimp says it will be 50 Euros. Plus another 50 "for being an asshole." I wish I could charge for that.

PUTTING IT INTO PERSPECTIVE

First Mom tells me about the muder-suicide in Falls Church (see yesterday) Then I get to work and feel a strong compulsion to act out violently against three asshole co-workers, the worst offender being the one who threw out my dinner before I got a chance to eat it.

Shortly after that I find out the 14-year-old daughter of a high school classmate was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. To make it worse she has developed temporary diabetes from the steroid treatment and has had a huge amount of necrotic tissue removed from her nasal cavity.

Kind of puts it all into perspective.

STEEL CLAW

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tis2dUZeI-g&feature=related

It's just a television wonderland
It's one more fairytale about a rich bitch
Lying by the swimming pool
Life is so cool
Easy living when you make the rules
Last Friday was the first time
It only took about a half a minute
On the stairway It was child's play
The odds turn out even when you give up believing in the
Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board you find the lock is on the door
Well I say no way
Don't try to keep me out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right or who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see saw
A long battle with the cold law
Is what you get for messing with the steel claw
The politicians have forgotten this place
Except for a flying visit in a black Mercedes
On election timeThey cross the line
And everybody runs to watch the pantomime
If they could see what's going on around here
So many people hanging onto the edge
Crying out for revolution
Retribution
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the
Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board you find the lock is on the door
Well I say no way
Don't try to keep me out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right or who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see saw
A long battle with the cold law
Is what you get for messing with the steel claw
Sometimes I think I'm going crazy
Sometimes I do a line, makes me laugh
Makes me wanna take a joyride
On the high tide
Sometimes I'm contemplating suicide
Meanwhile Eddy is on the west coast
I know he's making out with some sweet senorita
Up in Frisco
You and I know
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the
Cold law, steel claw
Try to get on board you find the lock is on the door
Well I say no way
Don't try to keep me out or there'll be hell to pay
I don't know who's right or who's wrong
It really doesn't matter when you're lying in the gutter
It's a see saw
A long battle with the cold law
Is what you get for messing with the steel claw

BLUE COLLAR MAN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhmdufirH54

Give me a job, give me security
Give me a chance to survive
I'm just a poor soul in the unemployment line
My god, I'm hardly alive
My mother and father, my wife and my friends
I see them laugh in my face
But I've got the power, and I've got the will
I'm not a charity case
I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
I'm gonna be a blue collar man
Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me respectable, man
This is my last time in the unemployment line
So like it or not i'll take those
Long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my back to the wall
If it takes all that to be just what I am
I'm gonna be a blue collar man
Keeping my mind on a better life
When happiness is only a heartbeat away
Paradise, can it be all I heard it was
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there

SOLSBURY HILL

http://www.tangle.com/view_video?viewkey=601b49dd0fe03c53b585

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing,
time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
I had to listen
had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart was going boom, boom, boom
Son, he said, grab your things,
I've come to take you home.
To keeping silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho my life was in a rut
till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart was going boom boom boom
Hey, he said, grab your things,
I've come to take you home.
Yeah back home
When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes, but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
Ill tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart was going boom boom boom
Hey, I said, you can keep my things,
they've come to take me home.

It's like a magic song. I think I heard one version in which he sings "which direction I should take, which connection I should break."

Does anyone else find this insulting to women? I love the song but find the video annoying -- the characters look like X-Files aliens with their oversized eyes. Also, the line "every beauty needs to go out with an idiot." If that 's true, judging by the idiots I've dated, I would say I was the most gorgeous woman in the world.

Beautiful women are not automatically intelligent. It would be a better comparison if they had written "every beauty needs to go out with an uggo," "every smart woman needs to go out with a moron" or "every nice woman needs to go out with an asshole."

WEEK 39

Weather's been pretty good (seems to be an observation in most Friday posts) and other than a minor scare with the city government things have not been too bad. That and looking at the beautiful people of Georgetown and wishing I were one. And wondering if I couldn't be one now if I had done things differently.

MAYBE...

...things aren't nearly as bad as they seem.

BATHROOM TOKENS FROM HEAVEN

Whenever I hear that song Pennies From Heaven I think of the movie with Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters, set during the '30's when things were even worse than they are now. And, corny as it sounds, whenever I find a penny on the sidewalk I think of G-d watching over us, reminding us that He's there.

This morning on my way home I saw something shiny on the ground, but it wasn't a penny -- it was a bathroom token. Not a bad way to start the day.

TEMPUS FUGIT II

My late grandmother would have been 102 years old today. It's been more than five years since she died. Tempus Fugit.

Today is also the feast of St. Linus , known far and wide for his holy blanket. He was martyred at the hands of his sister, St. Lucy of Van Pelt (Thanks to Tim Boyer and Jim Walsh for these contributions.

STRANGE DAYS, INDEED II

My Day:

1) First client arrives, not wearing underwear, doesn't tip.
2) Second client tells me he "feels like a million dollars" and tips about 30%.
3) Before the massage is over third client says "this is absolutely awful" and insists on stopping the massage. Naturally the bitch doesn't tip. I don't care if she hears me calling her "bitch" as she flounces out the door.
4) Fourth client cannot say enough nice things about me and my massage, to the point of making porno-movie noises throughout the session. He tips slightly more than ten per cent.
AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

A joyous autumnal equinox to all!

HANGIN' WITH MR....

So I'm on Dupont Circle hustling clients and I give a guy my card. Then a little while later I run into him at Kramer's, thinking he wants a session. And I realize he's just bored and wants to "hang" with me. In the past when guys said that they wanted sex, and it's been a while since anyone proposed that.

Still, it was kind of nice.

WEEK 38

The weather started out nasty and grey but ended up better. Cops are trying to bust me. Baby Pandora seems to be getting over her UTI and there may be help for me, too. I don’t have a UTI.
