a story that has actually occurred many times, within many different contexts, so if you think you are reading about yourself, you may be, but you are not the only person this story is about
A while ago, there was this guy. We'll call him "Mark." Mark and I sort of got together, in the loosest use of the phrase. As it turned out, I cared about Mark considerably more than Mark cared about me. Which is fine. I mean, I (of course) dislike him intensely now, but he was within his rights. Now. Here is the part where I demonstrate why I am a terrible person. After it became clear that whatever was between us wasn't going to be there anymore, we tried that being friends thing-- the being friends thing that really never works, you know. I, being jealous and still pretty attached to the guy, reverted to my junior high self and made various disparaging remarks considering Mark's character to many, many people-- in most cases, precisely the people to whom I should have not made this remarks, as they reported them directly to him. I have a big mouth. It's one of my flaws. Anyway, Mark confronted me about these comments, and was understandably irritated about them. At the time, I did feel bad and apologized. But lately I have come to realize that I really enjoy the fact that I still have the ability to get under his skin without having to try very hard. I know this makes me a terrible and vindictive person. However, I am already going to Hell for a myriad of reasons, so I may as well embrace the qualities that are more fun to play around in than conceal.
Emily: "There is a seat reserved for me on the express train to Hell."
Me: "Don't worry, the seat next to it is marked 'Reserve for Megan Estey'."

further evidence that i am a hopeless music geek
a. while scooping ice cream at the VSO Pops Concert last friday, I recognized and named the 1812 Overture, the Washington Post March, and the Stars and Stripes Forever. I was extremely pleased with myself, and announced this fact to pretty much anyone who would listen.
b. have I already mentioned that the opening theme in Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" bears a remarkable similarity to the theme of Gershwin's later "The Man I Love"?
c. my mom saw Arthur Fiedler conduct the Boston Symphony Orchestra on July 4, 1976 (the bicentennial) while they played the 1812 Overture, complete with cannons. that is SO COOL.
