Here are fragments of songs, poems and movies (even advice!) which have been reverberating in my head for the past few days. Just a disclaimer, there is no coherent theme binding them all together. For some inexplicable (or explicable hehe) reason they have just been tormenting me, creating a totally bizarre cornucopia of melodies, images and dialogue in my head. Oh, and some of them are just frighteningly sappy, and I apologize. My tastes can’t be discriminating all the time, and my mind apparently has a mind of its own…

1. Smashing Pumpkins’ Try, Try, Try (along with its hauntingly beautiful music video)

2. MJ telling Spidey We have to forgive each other or everything we ever were will mean nothing” (the trailer keeps playing on TV)

3. Neruda’s “Es tan corto el amor, y tan largo el olvido” from Puedo Escribir Los Versos Mas Triste Esta Noche

4. Go West’s King of Wishful Thinking (haha!)

5. Sylvia Plath’s Mad Girl’s Love Song

6. That Neil Gaiman quote which starts with “Have you ever been in love…

7. Rilke’s You Who Never Arrived

8. Karen Kunawicz’s Sound of One Heart Breaking

9. That awful theme song from Neighbours: “Neighbours should be there for one another…that’s when good neighbours become good friends…” (I’d really love to explain why, but I don’t want to jinx anything yet. All I can say is that it’s this little project that’s been making me and someone else so excited as of late. I think I’m gonna call it Operation N.H. hehe. Will divulge everything when the time is right.)

10. Charlie reminding me the other day that I once told her back in college that she will just laugh at *everything that happened* in the future (I’m nearing that stage now, Charlie…!)

11. K’s Choice’s Almost Happy

12. The plot of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
