Don't You (Forget About Me)
There is currently an aspirational shortfall in my life. Essentially, the difference between what I want my life to be, and the rather irritating reality that I seem to end up with. And most of it is entirely my fault. Obviously.
Example: This evening, I had planned to do the following:
Go to the gym.
Do a linen wash.
Do the washing up.
Fold and put away big pile of clean clothes.
Maybe even iron some of them(!)
Take out the rubbish.
Tidy up and file away records.
But what I actually did was the following:
Went shopping and bought several DVDs I don't need and probably can't afford.
Watched one of those DVDs, The Breakfast Club, whilst laying on my beanbag eating chocolate.
Spent rather too long dreamily thinking too hard about the emotional issues raised in The Breakfast Club. A film about teenagers.
I am 26.
Spent rather too long dreamily thinking too hard about Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club.
Chatted to friends online and via text.
Well, when I say "chatted", basically exchanged insults across hundreds of miles. Technology, eh?
Had a full on superstar DJ mixing session, meaning I got more records off the shelves and spread them all over the floor.
Banged my head on a light fitting, whilst jumping around to Frankie Goes To Hollywood. In my pants.
