Deja Who

January 2002

I awake from a dream. It’s about three in the morning and I’m on the living room floor next to the couch where She Who is Not to be Named has been sleeping. She feels my eyes upon her and she opens hers. I’ve spent almost every waking moment away from work with her ever since I ran into her at The Point After in late October. She’s looking at me silently and I say “I was just dreaming about you. Then I wake up and there you are.” She smiles back and the world is ok.

When I posted yesterday about the movie with the girls who had an unnatural attachment to each other I knew it sounded eerily familiar. Except in my case of unnatural attachment there were no hot lesbian scenes with She because a) I’m a dude and b) we weren’t kicking it. And we didn’t go and murder any old people either. That strange attachment eventually wore off and when I ran into She a couple of months ago I felt nothing of the old spell. It was all a mirage and self-deception as it was as my psyche had built her into something that she never was anyway, a sort of self-induced hallucination, kind of like getting the Holy Ghost. But it was fun while it lasted.

The downshot of that is that I think somewhere along the line I blew an infatuation-fuse. I can’t fall in like with anyone anymore and I think this may be permanent. I think this is somehow related to the time Eric Cartman blew a funny-fuse.

    No I’m fine. It was just bugging me why that movie was so deja vooey.

    I have a tendency to take movies I like and watch them over and over until they can’t be watched no more. I’ve watched this one three times so far.

  4. You should have taken the couch and left her on the floor……

    Any comments coming on how Michiganites have rejected state-mandated racism as a policy and can return to good old fashioned individual racism again?
