Yes, Meta is the heroine of Harry Harrison’s Deathworld series. She probably looks like a sexy weightlifter. (Born on a high-gravity planet, you see.) Anyway, meta is also my word for the posts that are just me blogging about blogging.
So, it has to be said that I’m having an emotional time at the moment.
I’m even listening to various kinds of emo music. Not Tristan und Isolde; that would pretty much destroy me in my current state. But I do recommend Don’t Fight It, Marsha, It’s Bigger than Both of Us by Blam Blam Blam, for the lovelorn.
I don’t feel like getting drunk so I’m going to do the other thing men sometimes do to deal with misery. Which is to forget about it for a while, and bury it in work.
I’ve had relationships end before, but this one has hit me really hard. But you have to leave yourself open to hurt, or you won’t be open to love.
Anyway, I’m back to the probation officer story tomorrow.
