The Doctor Will See You Now

Dear Diary,

Block-rockin' beats?... check (see iPod).

Artist: Weezer
Album: Make Believe (2005)
Song: Freak Me Out

Happy Friday Diary.  I trust that you had a good week?  How could you not, right?  You got to meet some pretty cool freaky people from my office.  That's gotta put a smile on your book cover.

Monday = "QC Ted"
Tuesday = "Wall Knocker"
Wednesday = "CHESTer"
Thursday = (oops... I owe you.)

I have one more person for this week, and I have nicknamed her "EMO(hio)."

"EMO(hio)" also works in my department and I get to call her one of the family.  She is an interesting piece of work because I think deep down in her sub-conscience she has a fascination with dying.

I'm not a clinical psychologist -- my friend Dr. Michael Welsh is -- but I'm thinking there are some deep-seeded issues that are starting to surface.  Fortunately, for "EMO(hio)" my friendship with Dr. Welsh (and his psychology degree) have rubbed off on me.

I'm going to lay down on a couch... that seems like an appropriate thing to do.

"EMO(hio)" as you might have guessed is originally from Ohio, but has moved to California to pursue her career in the banking world.  "EMO(hio)" loves to sky dive.  But, at the same time, doesn't because she has a son.  I have identified the first problem.  Loves a quick death (i.e., sky diving) but also wants a long life (i.e., has a son).

My second psycho-babble diagnosis is "EMO(hio)'s" health.  She for every day that I have known her (~28 days), has eaten a Weight Watcher's meal for lunch.  She also smokes a pack or two of cigarettes a day, which tells me she wants a slow and painful death, but with a healthly heart.  Conflict number two.  Truthfully, I have personally seen relatives die from lung cancer due to years of smoking and it was not a fun experience.

Oh great.  You've surfaced some strong feelings Diary.  [Wipes tear].  I told myself I wasn't going to cry.  [Wipes a few more tears].

[To himself...] Be strong Matt, be strong...

[Uncontrollable crying...] I can't do this Diary... you've really opened the water works now.  I gotta go.

Hi Mattrix-

Please add these songs to your Ipod playlist. These songs help me and my inspiration:

Leper Messiah - Metallica
In my Eyes - Minor Threat
Paranoid Android - Radiohead

Will do. I don't have the Minor Threat on the iPod though. I'll get the other two up there for you though.
