For Christmas Asshole Ex bought me a bumper for my car. For those who don't know the story, a few years ago, after pulling an all night road trip home from seeing The Killers with oops_in_the_apt in Houston, some guy rammed into me at a stop sign on the way to work in the morning. Hit and run, nothing I could do. I like my bumper. I like every little dink on my car. They tell a story. I drove this car off the lot and I plan on being the one that tows it to the junk yard. Asshole Ex hates the bumper and has been trying for over a year to make me get a new one. I've been stead fast in my "no". He's gone so far as to tell me I'm ruining my son's life by having a messed up bumper. For almost ten years growing up my mom drove a ten year old (when she got it) Corola with a huge rust spot on the driver's door. Did I care? Nope. Did any kid ever tease me about it? Nope. I went to a pretty posh private school for a while in my youth, too. He tells me about the bumper while we're at Canes with Melanie and he's bringing me Muskrat. I couldn't say anything at the time but I've sent him a text saying that I didn't want it. I just think it's pathetic that, three years after we've broken up, he's still trying to control my life. It's just another example of why there's no way in hell I'm going anywhere with him. It's the little things that show the real person underneath. He's still the same manipulative, self important, Napoleonic little shit he always was. At least our son is awesome.
Guy that I made the post about not too long ago finally officially asked me on a date. Granted, it was via text but he is off shore so I'm happy.
I've been catching up on a lot of tv. Me and Muskrat finally watch the Doctor Who Christmas Special today and OMG THE FISH! Also, I'm now on season 3 of Being Erica (great amazing fucking show), and started watching Breaking Bad as well as Eureka. Eureka I just started tonight and I like it so far but Breaking Bad I can't watch the last ep of season 1 because I don't want to spend the money on season 2 right now and I don't want it to end! It's amazing! I'm rewatching Lost from the beginning and am also in season 4 of rewatching Supernatural. What can I say, I like to multitask!
Also, the suckiest thing about getting a new tattoo is the itchy phase it gets in while it's healing. It itches so. much.
I'm also pretty unmotivated right now. I think it's because the Saints lost today. My poor boys!
