The Great Disappointment

In Personal, Rant on April 4, 2007 at 7:14:46 pm

I can remember, a place I used to go.
Chrysanthemums of white
They seemed so beautiful.
I can remember, I searched for the amaranth.
I’d shut my eyes, to see.

Oh how I smiled then, so near the cherished ones.
I knew they would appear, saw not a single one.
Oh how I smiled then, waiting so patiently.
I’d make a wish and bleed.

While I waited , I was wasting away
While I waited , I was wasting away

I can remember…dreamt them so vividly
Soft creatures draped in white, light kisses gracing me
I can remember when I first realized dreams were the only place to see them.

While I waited , I was wasting away
While I waited , I was wasting away
While I waited , I was wasting away

Hope was wasting away.
Faith was wasting away.
I was wasting away.

I never, never wanted this.
I always wanted to believe.
Never never wanted this.
How could I have become?
Never Never wanted this.
From the start I’d been deceived.
Never never wanted this.
How could I have become?

I never, never wanted this.
I always wanted to believe.
Never never wanted this.
Never Never wanted this.
From the start I’d been deceived.
Never never wanted this.

Inside a crumbling effigy
(But you promised)
So dies all innocence
(But you promised me)

While I waited , I was wasting away
While I waited , I was wasting away
While I waited , I was wasting away

Hope was wasting away.
Faith was wasting away.
I was wasting away.

There are 4 kinds of people I hate:

  • Dumb people
  • Useless people
  • People who just won’t shut up
  • Incompetent people

My experience with FedEx falls into the latter category.

On the doorknocker they placed on my doorhandle, they said that they would deliver my iPod by 5:00PM today. I phoned FedEx at 4:00, saying that I hadn’t got it yet and that their website shows no change from yesterday at 1:00PM with regards to my tracking number. The man sounded surprised, and said that the Calgary office must have forgotten to put my package on a truck. He sent a message to the office to remind them to put it on the truck tomorrow.

Idiots.
