Ever the best man, never the groom.... :'(

  • Where the heck do these people get their ideas from?!?

    Some people think of David Pomeranz's "King And Queen of Hearts" as sexual. Not sure why. Some allude to the fact that lovemaking is sometimes poetically called a "dance."

    And then they point out the line "Promise me you're mine tonight" or "While the lights are low, I'll never let you go..."

    Sometimes they say they get it from the line "on a night that I prayed would never end." Because most lovemaking occurs at night (candlelight, romantic atmosphere, etcetera).

    What the heck? Where are people getting these ideas?

  • Plan A, Plan B, or Plan C?

    At our college, there's this thing called Spring Party. It's like high school's spring formal, minus the dancing (my school has a no-dancing policy--dumb, right?). Still, it's a good time to dress up and ask the girls out.

    Last semester, I asked this girl out to our "Fall Thing", which was supposed to be a Sadie Hawkins-like thing, where it's the girls who ask the guys out. But for some reason, ASB thought it was a BRILLIANT idea to have the guys ask the girls out.

    Sucked for me. I got rejected.

    Now this semester, I'm going to try and ask her out again. (And if she turns me down again, I wouldn't know what to do anymore!)

    So I was thinking of taking some speakers and playing David Pomeranz's "King & Queen of Hearts." I'll come to her dorm (in the lounge) dressed up in a tux like I'm going to a prom, with a single rose in my hand and a corsage. Then I'll wait for her there while her friends run off to tell her that some sweet guy is waiting for her. Then ask her out on one knee. (PLAN A)

    Or maybe I could send her a note, saying, "I never really enjoyed my prom--I was there with a group of friends but no date. What if I could correct that by asking you out to Spring Party? You wouldn't refuse a sad, lonely, broken-hearted guy now, would you?" (PLAN B)

    Or I could get a couple of friends as accomplices. Set up the gym, fill it with balloons like it's a prom or something, and have one of her friends lure her into the gym (maybe tell her that she--the friend--forgot something at the gym and would appreciate it if my crush would help her look).

    I'll be there in my tux, rose, and corsage, with David Pomeranz's "King And Queen of Hearts" playing.

    Maybe I could do both and have a card, telling her I never really had a good prom experience (or a good high school experience). (PLAN C)

  • You can't change the past. But you can learn from your experience and change who you are now?

    Be the person you want to be, today?

    Every time high school comes to mind, I remember all the bitter memories. I was the outcast, the outsider, the shy, nerdy kid the jocks bullied and the girls ignored.

    And we all know that prom is an essential part of a person's teenage years. Well, I got to attend prom because a few good friends (cool, popular people who really thought I was worth it, not like the jocks and hot cheerleaders who treated me bad) took me with them.

    But I didn't get to ask a girl out. Didn't even get to dance--I was just there, at our table. Alone. They all came with dates. And there was no one in the room I could ask to dance.

    Come to think of it, though, I asked this girl named Stacy to dance in senior year (and she said yes). So that wasn't so bad.

    But I sometimes feel bitter and resentful and want to go back in time and change my prom experience (and I wish I wasn't treated so bad).

    HOW??

    There are no PROMS in life now--this isn't high school! I want a PROM all over again! How do I learn from it and be the person I want to be?

    Can I have prom again? No!

  • Did I dream that we'd dance forever, in a wish that we made together?

    On a night that I prayed would never end?

  • Is prom really an important part of a teenager's life and development?

    Looking back now, I feel like it's overrated.

  • What is "Non-Humans" all about?

    A friend of mine posted a picture of a comic book called "Non-Humans" and he put "Issue 2!"

    What is it about--I'm curious.

    He hasn't gotten back to me yet.

  • If you traveled back in time, but your time machine broke and you got stuck, where would you rather be stuck?

    The Tudor Era (to maybe the Elizabethan Era)?

    Or the Victorian Era?
