I'm drunk, but not from drinking or smoking anything. I waited too late to pick up my Effexor refill yesterday. The pharmacy closed at 5. I got there at 5:10. Whenever I miss a dose, the next day I feel really drunk, dizzy, sleepy, stumbly. It's so weird that when you first start taking these medications it takes a few weeks for them to start working, but miss one dose and you're screwed. I'll go get it in a few minutes, but right now I'm indulging in some ELO, Livin' Thing in particular. Why isn't orchestral rock acceptable anymore? I love it:
Sailin' away on the crest of a wave
It's like magic
Rollin' and ridin' and slippin' & sliding
I do feel like I'm on the crest of a wave, rollin' and ridin' and slippin' and sliding, but not in the way I'd like. Magic? Well, chemistry maybe.
And you, and your sweet desire,
You took me, ohhh higher and higher baby,
It's a livin' thing,
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose.
I'm takin' a dive. Dive, dive... (echo)
Yeah, it feels like a dive off the raft into the roiling waters.
Making believe this is what you've conceived
From your worst day, I'm takin a dive
Moving in line when you look back in time
To the first day, I'm taken I'm taken
And you and your sweet desire,
Don't you do it , don't you do it,
Taking me ohh, higher and higher baby
It's a living thing,
It's a terrible thing to lose,
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose
I'm takin a dive. Almost there... hey...
Takin' a dive 'cos you can't halt the slide
Floating downstream, I'm takin a dive
So let her go don't start spoiling the show
It's a bad dream, I'm takin', I'm takin'
No, you can't halt the slide. You can't build a dam strong enough to stop the downstream flow. Insidious water always finds its way. I often dream of the ocean and the sharks swimming there waiting for me to fall in.
And you and your sweet desire
Don't you do it , don't you do it
Taking me higher and higher baby
I'm taking a dive...
It's a livin' thing...
