If I find you attractive
and I say something to you,
What is the harm?

If I tell you your eyes
are beautiful,
or that your hair
looks nice,
or that the dress that you are wearing
is very pretty,

Why are you offended?

When I stop and say hello
I'm only being friendly.

but you made a call
and talked to someone
and I got fired

Inappropriate behavior,
they said.

So now I have all the time
in the world
for an answer.

I'll wait here while you sleep.

Renata sits at her lonely table and watches the sea like she does every winter. In her deepest heart, she knows that this will be the year he comes back to her. And it won't be like before, because she has changed. She is taller inside now, stronger, and able to handle his eccentricities: the nights of disappearances, the cold lavender scent of his skin after he fed, and the worms.
Oh, yes, the worms. They had been the worst. The creepy, crawly sensation of them crawling over her skin as she lay next to him, tasting her with a thousand tongues and trying to burrow into her flesh, to get to the warm inside of her where they could lay eggs and feed off of the desire that burned like a flame.
It was the thing that had broken in her, the thing that had made him leave, the thing that made her ugly in his eyes. She hated the worms, hated how they felt as they crawled inside her like a lover, even though that was the only way he could touch her.
He said nothing when he left, but it was clear enough: she hated the worms, she hated him. She could see it in his ice-blue eyes, and it tore her heart.

Woe is me. We are putting together the lockdown code for burning to a CD tomorrow, and I was going to spend a good chunk of the night fixing data conversions. My supervisor called me into his cube to talk about the conversions that needed to be done, and we got to talking about them, and while we were talking, he managed to finish all of them.

So basically tonight I have to do a verification build, and then I am done. I'll be done early. Real early.

I thought I might go see a movie, but the only movie that's playing that I have any interest in maybe seeing is Medallion, and I don't know that I really want to go out of my way to see that.

So I'll probably go have dinner at Applebees or something, then head back to the hotel and see what's on TV. And a little hot tubbin'.

La la la.

This weekend is the first shooting of this coming season's Horror Incorporated shows. And Barb will be out of town with Bravo Company in Kansas City, so I will be pretty much alone for the weekend. I have to put together a spec commercial and burn a couple more DVDs, but I might be able to do most of that Friday night.

Hmmm... what to do...
