Zack Harrison Memorial Music Monday: Anniversary of my unceremonious dumping edition.

Update: Mr. Shain weighs in.

Today, I think, marks the day the exbf dumped me. I'm not gonna lie, it's been rough going, but I think I'm going to pull through. Someday.

I wrote this super long, whiney ass post about everything, then realized it was crap. The exbf sucked in a lot of ways, but it's all in the past. Bygones.

i can't believe it's only been a year and he's already married with a kid. that's gotta sting.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Oy, sorry to hear about all that. But great e-cards!

blythe said...

mr. shain - i will end you. facebook has made no such mention of a child or marriage, but thanks. remember when i told you the story about him crying over you? i thought you were on my side.

cherry - e-cards are great, aren't they?

Mr. Shain said...

blythe, uhm, who sent you those e-cards this weekend? wait, that was me. e-cards are great, ergo mr. shain is great. btw, i'm totally writing a post about making him cry now.

blythe said...

shain, um, those cards have been all over the blogs, buddy. catch up. but of course you're great. like gangrene. i wish you weren't kidding about the post.

Clinton said...

"Bygones" is totally the way to do it when it comes to break-ups, in my opinion. That, and lots and lots and lots and lots and LOOOOTS of liquor.

Also, you're fast becoming my favorite mix-tape maker. The inclusion of Big Star and that particular song by Phoenix on your lists are only helping your cause.

Love the labels! Some days whiney posts are good.

NathanWind said...

boo fucking hoo. its been a year. plenty more cock in the sea. by now you've idealized the realtionship and masturbated. the best part is that after you take care of yourself you remember why it didn't work out in the first place. no more baby batter on the brain (thank allah for Chris Elliott). its enough now. move on.

blythe said...

clinton - oh, i've been very good about the lots of liquor part. a little too good. not that i remember or anything. and thanks! if only i could parlay my love of a good mix into a real job. 8th grade heaven!

9er - oh, yes. and there'll be more.

nathanwind - your sensitivity is devastating.

Mr. Shain said...

ok, the post about making your ex cry is done. complete with linkage to your wonderful and under-read blog.

Jess said...

It's amazing the difference a year can make. Hooray for bygones.

Colleen said...

We've all been there, right everyone? Right. I don't want to be to much of a cheeser so I'll stop there. But one more thing: everything passes.
And those e cards are awesome.

blythe said...

shain - thanks, yo. if only you had pics of him in the leotard. if only.

jess - oh yes. this year has been something else. it can only get better, right? so i keep telling myself...

colleen - thanks.

it sucks, alright, but at least i lost some weight out of the depression. so, i got that going for me.
