Pessimism

‘Lights’ – The Sisters of Mercy

She won’t give me that second (or is it third?) chance (or is it fourth?), will she?  I know she won’t.  And I’ve been thinking about her all day, at work.  She’s back with Dalton, I’m pretty sure of it.  And it’s a killer.

Her reply will be:

‘Ritcherd,

No, I didn’t want to say hello.  Keep your nose out.  I’ve married Mark.  And no, I don’t want to ‘do anything about’ our ‘anniversary’ – except perhaps kill you.  Now PISS OFF!’

She might not reply at all. 

We’ll see.

People have said – and I love the quote – but people have said that the Pet Shop Boys gigs were ‘shit’.  But I hope Flash loved it.  People are saying similar things about the BATMAN movie now it’s been released in the USA.



I first heard about this Batman film back in October, and now – yes – Batmania has me in its clutches.  I haven’t mentioned it much, but I read every newspaper and magazine article about it that I can get my hands on.  I’m very excited about it – and I love the Prince music, too.  I really want this to be the best film I’ve ever seen.  Roll on, August 11th.

BMW will reply: ‘stop pestering me’ … ‘grow out of it’ … ‘you’ll just have to accept’ … ‘It’s in the past now’ … ‘’We failed twice, it wouldn’t work’ … ‘I love Mark’ … ‘we’re engaged’ … ‘don’t write to me again’…

Hm.
