is the singer of some awesome songs. So, you want the good news first or the bad news? I always hate it when something leaves you with a bad taste, so bad news first and followed up with something sweet.
I spent $500 on bartending classes. I worked my ass off there and in the following weeks trying to get a job. I finally got a job and am making good money, better money than I ever have before. However, I fucking HATE bartending. There is way too much stress and bullshit involved. I'm not going to bore you with all the details, but it blows big mother fucking chunks. Only thing I will tell you is that customers are all donkey-fucking-shit-eating-baby-raping-mother-fuckers, and that's that.
Now then, good news. I'm in love. Very, very, very in love. Her name is Suzanne and she is by far the best damn thing to ever happen to me. I could on for pages and pages about how awesome/beautiful/fun/smart/sexy/gorgeous she is, but you might throw up. Allow me to leave you instead with a poem.
Lullaby by W. H. Auden (1940)
Lay your sleeping head, my love,
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephemeral:
But in my arms till break of day
Let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.
