It’s Black Friday and my Mom is one of those idiots who go out shopping at 5:00 A.M. and my Dad is one of those idiots who actually have to work today. I have the house all to myself. I have never been so bored in my entire life.
My ennui was such that I actually talked to Connie for over an hour. We talked about her boy troubles and avoided talking about how Brint never called me. It was actually sorta nice having a nice normal conversation with a friend.
After the Kate Nash show Connie is suddenly very open to trying out new music, so she asked me to make her a mix. She even offered to make one for me to, but I politely declined. I don’t need any Justin Bieber, Evanescence or Michael Buble on my iPod. I suggested instead that she use her talents to draw me something. I'm starting to think she may be a secret genius because she sent me this.
Connie and I have a symbiotic relationship. She makes me feel like less of an idiot and I make her feel like less of a loser.
“Angry Grey’s Anatomy Mix” for Connie.
