Come back, love!

Come back, love! 200+ signatures can't be wrong. My girlfriend just broke up with me, but I have yet to resort to petitions or grammatically poor high-school doggerel in an effort to repair our relationship.

Sorry for the lame post. I can't seem to think about anything else these days. Gotta do something to make myself feel better. And what better way than laughter and ridicule at the expense of others. Now THAT will definitely bring my love back.

Uh, why would someone want to have back a love that has scorned them?

Unless, of course, you were the one who drove them away from your own stupidity. Which has happened before, and in that case, I completely sympathize.. but if someone just ups and leaves you, then I say good riddence.

Cause all you're inviting back is more pain.

As a side note, I've actually finally made it to 100 posts. Now go about your business.

Rich, you're right about that poem. It doesn't really fit with the "baby come back" theme, but I couldn't resist its content.

Oh, shit. I accidentally voted for Pat Buchanan.

"Gotta do something to make myself feel better."

Hello? Masturbation? It's done wonders for me since my recent break up. Give it a try.

Hey, if this petition thing works for relationships maybe we could try it for other personal issues.

"Dear noisy neighbors. I am writing this petition in protest to you playing Enya albums at full volume. Lets try to keep it down!!"

Getting drunk with a friend and then wondering who next used to work for me. Ah, to be shallow again.

One day this'll be a bitter-sweet memory. I promise.

"Enya albums" lordy thats to close to home.

In the current context I suspect Enya albums are better than noisy sex...

Low self esteem. End of story.

As a matter of fact, I would actually prefer noisy sex. Once it's over, it's "over". And while it was as disturbing and mildly entertaining, you don't find yourself being lulled to sleep by a continuous CD loop.

Miss one bus there is always another on the way.

That was a real invasion, clavdivs. You will have noticed the tribute. The mock invasion was Caligula. Who had a whole bunch of ways of his own to get over heartache.

noisy neighbors having sex + masturbation = the ticket for the next bus on the way. Have fun while it lasts, someone else'll be doing a miserable job at it for you before too long.

"He made but one campaign and...made the journey from Massilia(Marseilles) all the way to Gesoriacum(boulogne) by land, crossed from there, and without any battle or bloodshed received the submission of a part of the island"
-suetonius. He thought it was no "legitimate triumph" The mock comes from another source that says that mock invasions were staged to pacify the emperor and scare the brits. Caligula staged a mock battle against the sea in Gaul. It was my damned stepson nero who staged the sea-monster mock battles. ahh, your right, it was real enough. But littleboots did not intend to invade Britannia.

Sorry for the lame post.

I was just about to say how much this post rocks.

As far as the ex goes than cry, shout, get drunk/high and loose yourself in a blizzard of pornography.

Oh, and don't call them, be friends or even speak their name again.

Accept that there is true evil slouching 'cross the highways and byways of the world, and that you have just narrowly escaped a fatal tussle with one of its most active minions...flee, don't look back, rejoice, and heal.

Struggle to see, and don't let your eyes freeze upon the illusion and your mind melt in the madness.

Thanks for all the good advice. I'm feeling better already. And when someone sent me Cake's version of "I Will Survive" I danced around the house and felt better than I have in a week.

My personal recovery recipe: Exercise, Poetry, Wine, Pornography, and most importantly -- no idle couch time.

Nice words, rushmc.
