Dreams. They're what happiness are made of. They bring us hope, joy, and sometimes the drive to have a better life. They're what drive us to be better lovers, friends, family members, and employees (especially those that don't waste time blogging at work).
So my day winds down at work and I look forward to calling this a pleasant Monday. Work was slow, conversation was good, and overall it was a good day...didn't even have to use my A-K....word....
Sorry got a little carried away there.
Anyways I get an IM from a coworker. Then another from a friend, then another, then another, and a few emails pour in all in the time span of about fifteen minutes. Each and every message contained a link to a news article that would shatter my very existence. A story that has crushed my soul and is making me rethink that simply getting out of bed, or even breathing, is worth the effort.
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson are now engaged. Yes the woman that was to be my angel, to make me believe in love again, has now committed herself to walking down the aisle with the co-star of Blade part 3 (cause enough wasn't said in the first two). Granted the guy is far better looking, wealthier, funnier...err...damn I can't blame her really.
Still this news is sad as I can no longer hold on to that glimmer of hope that maybe one day she'll be mine, cause you know I had a chance. So dear readers the content of Erik's Ramblings will shift away from mildly obsessive posts about my favorite curvy debutant, but my heart will always hold a candle to my once muse.
