100indecisions: my chains are broken (crooked switchfoot)
I was informed, just after posting the last entry, that my bag had been found--in my home airport. Not Minneapolis, not Portland, not Seattle, but back home. Apparently someone was a little too efficient in trying to get it back to me. They said they'd send it up here and deliver it to the hotel; it finally made it here sometime around 6 p.m. I wanted to hug it when I got it back. ^-^

Also, I am remembering just why we didn't visit my mom's side of the family last year, and why my dad bowed out and let us three come to Washington alone the year before that. I think I'm going to lose my mind. I think I'm indecisive? It's a wonder I can make my mind up about anything considering I get half my genes from these people. If we waste any more time hanging around talking about absolutely nothing and hemming and hawing over the most trivial of decisions, I am going to scream, or get really violent, or something.

When I posted that incredibly long list of D.C. songs, I forgot the one CD I listened to the most: one I'd burned, mostly of songs [livejournal.com profile] timetakestime sent me. I'm listening to it now, and it's reminding me that nearly all of those songs fit too.

Between the motion and the act falls the Shadow )

And everything...feels strange. It's home, and it feels like home, but at the same time it doesn't feel like home anymore.

The whole fact that I'm still sickish and didn't sleep enough last night, and have now spent over an hour on here doing nothing, having drunk almost nothing and eaten less, doesn't help. I now have a headache from sleeplessness and dehydration. I really, really don't want to go to work, and when I put in The Everglow just now to cheer myself up a bit, I realized it hasn't been played in so long that it now reminds me of last summer. And summers now seem to be very uncomfortable times for me. I really wish music didn't make these associations like this--a song reminding me of something is fine, but not when it brings this vague, undefinable uneasiness with it. I'm just kind of...screwed up right now, which I expected, but yeah.

Like Churchill, though, I can sort of say that I have a song for every period in my life. This trip certainly accumulated a lot of them.

I didn't listen to a lot of music on the D.C. trip, but a lot of what I heard seemed to apply oddly well to one part of it or another )

Going to have breakfast and attempt to accomplish something now.
