I tried to post this earlier today, and I was on another computer and didn't think it was working so I deleted it and am posting it now. Thanks for stopping by.
I see tonight
I wish I may
I wish I might
Have the wish
I wish tonight
So, what do I want to wish for? Isn't that the question of the day.
I will tell you what I really want. I want to be surrounded by people like me. Liberal minded, forward thinking, big picture people. I know they exist here because I work at a freakin' university! I think that they are all faculty, though. The staff have lived here their entire lives, mostly, and were hired back when a university meant a good job for life. The administration, for the most part, grew up here, attended the university as students, and have worked here their entire lives. And for a faculty to commit to living here they would have to be the type that have conservative values underlying their outlook on life because, let's face it, this is Conservativeville. You could go insane if you tried to live with overt liberal tendencies around here.
What else do I want? I want a romantic date for Valentine's Day. I've never had one. I'm sure I'm not the only person in the U.S. of A. to never be someone's Valentine but that's really not helpful when the posters and ads start circulating for this decrepit holiday. I've had two boyfriends that overlapped onto V-Day, but they didn't take me out. One went so far as to break up with me so that he wouldn't have to. Yes, I am feeling pathetic now.
I guess what I really want is to not be lonely anymore. Have you ever noticed that you gravitate to those songs when you're blue? I can't really say why today is the day to vent, either, but it is.
So, Star, send me someone to love. That shouldn't be too much to ask.
I really want to slow dance with someone to these songs...
