Are the cosmic powers trying to do me in? Do the fates hate me that much? Is my personal karma suffering from PMS? Maybe the universe is trying to send me a message. Hmm. I'm not sure I care for the rather obvious meaning of said message.
Let's review the facts, shall we?
* First, we have the cold shower phenomenon. Coincidence? I'm thinking probably not, given recent developments.
* Last night, I had a disturbing dream. In the dream-nightmare, someone I know is marrying a woman with one heck of a m.o. Think BIG time gold digger. And, yes, these people exist in reality. Note: to date, they are not engaged; they are, however, together, and it seems all but the poor guy can see her true self.
* Finally, we have a string of songs that, to my utter disdain, seem to reek of sardonic irony.
Like A Virgin (Madonna).
Roll eyes, change the station.
All By Myself (original version).
Oh, hell no. IMMEDIATELY change the station.
My Heart Will Go On (Celine Dion; yeah, the Titanic theme song).
Where's the rope? I mean, seriously?
My interpretation of karma's message, taking all events into account: I apparently need the cold shower because I'll always be a virgin, I'll always be alone, and the men of the world only go for shady women with less than honorable intentions, OR I will find and make love, only to see him drown in an icy cold ocean...or, you know, some equivalent.
Hmm. So, I'm not liking either interpretation. Maybe I'll just chalk it all up to fate needing a good laugh at my expense. Fabulous. Hope it was a hearty, side-splitting laugh...heartless karma bitch.
