hippybngstockng: (sad coffee is sad)
I had an awesome post prepared for this song late on Wednesday night, but my damn browser ate it on Thursday morning. I was trying to be good and not post before work, and so I stayed good and just deleted what was left and went to work instead. Don't hate me.

And speaking of don't-hate-me... Today's break-up song is going to be in my top 3 of all time, since it definitely has special meaning for me. It happens to be the song that [livejournal.com profile] uniquecrash5 sent to me, almost a year after I had broken off our decade+ long relationship. I have always aimed to be a decent person when I have to end a relationship, and I had taken extra care with Crash, not just because of K but because I knew I wanted him to still be my close friend too. There were a few really sticky reasons I knew this would be particularly difficult, and I knew if I wasn't serious about making him still feel my respect and caring for him that I would not be able to live with myself. Considering that he sent me this song after what in Joss Whedon terms would be my Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal (and the subsequent ironic-comedic-but-no-less-inevitable conclusion of same), as an attempt to make me feel better about my life, I would have to say I guess I did what I had set out to do. Proud is not the right word, since what I get when I hear this song is more of a lump in my throat of feeling good that I am smart enough to not hurt people whose love is very important to me.
