sullen eyes

Man a lot of bad shit happened this past week or so: Fire in Rhode Island nightclub, stampede in Chicago club, air plane crashes, and explosion at a refueling station in Staten Island. Plus things on the personal front seem tragic - people from Watchung Hills tell me that a sophomore died of cancer this past Tuesday. I didn’t know him, but still. One of my mom’s friends’ mother died. There’s more, I think, but it’s too depressing to think about. Quite a coincidence, all of this.

On a totally unrelated note, while looking at CNN’s web site, I found this story. The Passaic River ran through my old town, formed the southern border. I used to go back into the woods during the winter and go out on the ice. I fell through once, only one of the my legs. My friend helped me out, and as much as it sucked because my foot was freezing, I was fine. I fell in another time, too, when it wasn’t frozen but the water was still frigid. That one sucked even more. It was one of the few times in my life that I was thoroughly convinced I was going to die. It isn’t a pleasant feeling. Anyway, I’m done with my funky form of nostalgia for tonight.

My plans to go to a hockey game tonight were clotheslined when everyone got sick. It’s like an epidemic or something: Matt, Annie, Maggie, Zoë, Ben, everyone is sick. That which does not kill me might make me stronger, but it’s still going to hurt. Cowardice? There’s a fine line between bravery and stupidity. This has so little to do with what I started talking about, though, that I’m just going to stop writing.

I am sitting in CS. I am bored. That is my story.

Nuole is sitting next to me. We are reading blogs. Or at least we were, now she’s gone back to searching article databases for various teacher’s names. Good times. Except she’s reading it and I feel embarrassed and stupid about it. Oh well. She’s hitting keys on my keyboard. Argh…. I sound like a pirate. Pirate Tom. Yes.
