Headaches. Sharks in My Yard. Lost Love.

So far today, my head is feeling better. The past 2 weeks have been bad, the headaches aren't the most traumatizing I've ever had, but they are constant and keep me from falling asleep. I have to get soooo tired before I can sink into sleep. But it's ok, I think these headaches have cropped back up because I went through a very stressful period where I was very worried about my mom and her health. And I can be thankful for one thing, the pain isn't near what it used to be...

I'm thankful to be alive. I really am. And I'm so lucky to have loving people in my life. And we have sharks tied up in the backyard, they are pretty cool too, and I think they love me although they don't say it. I think they have a complex, they have a hard time committing and saying the, "I love you Sebastien." They're kind of macho like that. But it's ok, I still tell them I love them. But there are moments where I'm struck with sadness because they can't tell me they love me. It really does hurt.

Speaking of love, it seems like lots of my friends are experiencing difficult situations with their love lives. It makes me sad, I try and talk on the phone with them when I can. You know, give some support, everyone needs someone who understands and can listen. But it's difficult because of my headaches, I can't talk as much or as often as I'd like.

So what are my general thoughts on love? Does love suck, or is it marvelous and awesome? You probably already know what I think... love is the greatest! It can be terrible and agonizing, but it's totally worth it.

Let me leave you with this song clip, La Bise Aux Hippies, it's so funny and great...

I love falling in love. It's the maintenance that's hard.

Sonja said...

What are the hippies singing about? I recognize that they are saying a lot of people's names - are these people they "got it on" with?

Headaches are like a beast in your head. The more you think about the headache, the more you feed it, and sometimes being tired on top of that makes it stronger as well, because you're trying to get to sleep, but it's still there with the rest of the thoughts in your head that won't go away. I hate headaches. I'm glad you're feeling better!

Oh and I'm jealous of your sharks. But if sharks did fess up and started saying that they love you, they'd lose their edge. Do your sharks have laser beams attached to their heads?

Love is a figment of our collective imagination. --Oprah

Don't you hate how she quotes herself in her magazine which is named after herself with herself on the cover of every issue?

She didn't really say the above quote. I made it up. I blame everything on Oprah.

People in the Sun said...

I hope you noticed BB says she doesn't love Rambo.

Sebastien said...

L: Awww, I'm sorry to hear that.

Mist1: Sooo true...

Sonja: They're saying they don't like so and so, but they do like 'doing it' hippie style, haha!!

Tara: Holy shit, the sharks do hsve laser beams attached to their heads! Haha, Dr. Evil must be around somewhere...

Fringes: You are too funny because I was going to believe you. Never really seen Oprah's show, but she works in Chicago, so she's cool with me.

People in the Sun: Oh my god, it's true, and I didn't even know my dog's first name was Arthur, but now I know! and she doesn't love him, that hurts...

Mariana said...

Don't worry Sebastien, I love your dog! Sharks just like to play hard to get... Feel better, buddy, you and your mother!

bice said...

Love is a bitch. Not the mean kind but the hip-hop kind.

WAT said...

I need some pot to find that clip more entertaining.

C'est Brigitte Bardot? Elle me semble trop diferente, pas la meme.

Sebastien said...

Mariana: Haha, thank you! Yeah, the sharks are just teasing me, I know they love me :)

Bice: So true :) I need to catch up and check your archived shows...

WAT: Pot would certainly enhance the clip. Yeah, definitely doesn't look like her, I saw her in another Gainsbourg song, didn't recognize her in that one either.

MrManuel said...

I am happily married with no problems at all. I think love is grand.

frenchyflower said...

love is good. too bad it's so hard to find.

Sebastien said...

Mrmanuel: Yay! Glad to hear it :)

Frenchy: True, but that's what makes it speical!

Anastasia said...

I think that love - when things reach that level where they are love, and not infatuation or lust -rocks the world, but lust/infatuation is transient, and often disappointing..ok it sucks...well it's all right as a solo distraction, but that's about it, it can be like a foundation on sand, precarious.

Sebastien said...

Yeah I totally agree. I think when you have love, that is when things can go to a level beyond what one gets with situations where it's just lust/infatuation.

Roberto said...

So what exactly is that song about, for those of us who have less than stellar language capabilities?

Interesting video nonetheless.

Sebastien said...

Robby, to keep it short and simple, it's about sex, haha!
