The Forgiveness of Night

I’ll allow myself just a teensy bit of wallowing. I may read Super Sad True Love Story soon and watch one of my sappy go-to movies like Happy Accidents. But the pity party won’t last. In an effort to purge this from my system I put out a call to twitter this morning…asking for break-up song suggestions. Received interesting responses. I’ve peppered the list with some of my own.

After a day of listening to such break-up songs I’d considered seeing Budrus (an Israeli/Palestinian/American documentary about non-violent demonstrations protesting the building of the Israeli West Bank barrier inside of the village). But that seemed a bit too much. I needed lighter fare. And convinced a couple of friends to join me at The Riverview Theater for Easy A instead. This was just the thing. Afterward I retrieved my son from the ex and we got to chatting about how tomorrow is December. And that got me thinking about how New Year’s Eve isn’t far off. And how every New Year’s Eve has been horribly depressing for one reason or another and ends up with me ringing in the new year sad and alone after my son goes to bed. So I’m opting to be more proactive. Things will change this go around. Instead the boy and I will get a deal on a hotel room somewhere, in a hotel with both a pool and a hot tub, where we will order room service and watch cartoons on cable. It will be the best New Year’s Eve ever! Don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it sooner.

Low, at The Cedar
