"You Can't Bring Me Down" by Suicidal Tendencies came up on shuffle on my ride home today, and I was pumped, singing along, and feeling just like Mike Muir: standing up against whoever or whatever it is that's trying to keep me down.
Although, I don't really know of any force right now trying to get me down.
My massive amounts of student loans?
The bitchy lady today at Kinkos?
The guys who didn't ship a gift for Gancey Girlfriend in time for Christmas?
The four days worth of paperwork I have to do in one day tomorrow?
These are not unstoppable forces and clearly not causing the kind of angst I was feeling in the car, head banging away, but perhaps it took me back to when I listened to this song - back when I was a teenager. A pimply, sexually frustrated, socially awkward, angry at the world teenager. That or I really needed a release from that Kinkos lady pissing me off . . .
And now, for no reason at all, here's a hot girl doing the splits in her ice skates.
