Random Thoughts, for Valentines day, 2004. The day’s a holiday invented by greeting card companies, to make people feel like crap. I ditched work today. Took a train out to Montauk. I don’t know why. I’m not an impulsive person. I guess I just woke up in a funk this morning. I have to get my car fixed. “Hi Sydney? It’s Joel. Listen, I don’t feel very well today. No. Food poisoning I think.” It’s goddamned freezing on this beach! Montauk in February. Brilliant, Joel. Pages are ripped out, don’t remember doing that. It appears this is my first entry in two years. Sand is overrated. It’s just tiny little rocks. If only I could meet someone new. I guess my chances of that are somewhat diminished, seeing as I’m incapable of making eye contact with a woman I don’t know. Maybe I should get back together with Naomi. She was nice, nice is good. She loved me. Why do I fall in love with every woman I see who shows me the least bit of attention?
