I’m such a pathetic lovesick fool. I watched Ally McBeal today and the Robert Downey Jr. character had to move to Detroit in order to be with his son. The sappy thing about the whole episode was how sad it seemed to be when they (Calista and Robert characters) said goodbye. Being me — I got all choked up and tears started welding up in my eyes. Why? — you ask. Well, Robert’s character told Ally that he wasn’t one for face-to-face goodbyes and that he instead wrote letters/notes. So as you see Ally walk the streets of Boston back to her apartment — on her front steps is a snowman with a note attached saying, “I’ll be back.” Waaaaaaahhh. So sad. That show never ceases to amaze me. I can stop watching it for months — come back — and still be intrigued. *sigh* Hopefully, they’ll bring back his character — but as it stands (according to Robert Downey Jr.’s real-life narcotics problem) that may not happen. Arrrggghh.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed how emotional I tend to be when watching silly TV or movies. Its bizarre because I either get riled up on some specific topic that bothers me OR I get really sad/upset. I think its the combination of both emotional stress and just getting older. You realize the importance of certain things and the mentual anguish that are perhaps associated with them. There I go again — being all nostalgic and dreamy-eyed. Maybe its because I’m listening to the following 80s song — just read the lyrics…you’ll understand:

(Bonnie Tyler) – Total Eclipse of the Heart

“Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit lonely

and you’re never coming round.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit tired

of listening to the sound of my tears.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit nervous

that the best of all the years have gone by.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit terrified

and then I see the look in your eyes.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit restless

and I dream of something wild.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit helpless

and I’m lying like a child in your arms.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit angry

and I know I’ve got to get out and cry.

Turn Around

Every now and then I get a little bit terrified

but then I see the look in your eyes.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

And I need you now tonight

and I need you more than ever

and if you only hold me tight

we’ll be holding on forever.

And we’ll only be making it right

’cause we’ll never be wrong.

Together we can take it

to the end of the line.

Your love is like a shadow

on me all of the time.

I don’t know what to do

and I’m always in the dark.

We’re living in a powder keg

and giving off sparks.

I really need you tonight,

forever’s gonna start tonight (2X)

Once upon a time I was falling in love

but now I’m only falling apart.

There’s nothing I can do,

a total eclipse of the heart.

Once upon a time

there was light in my life

but now there’s only love in the dark.

Nothing I can say,

a total eclipse of the heart.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes (2X)

Turn Around

Every now and then I know you’ll never be the boy

you always wanted to be.

Turn Around

But every now and then I know you’ll always be

the only boy who wanted me the way that I am.

Turn Around

Every now and then I know there’s no one in the universe

as magical and wondrous as you.

Turn Around

Every now and then I know there’s nothing any better,

there’s nothing that I just wouldn’t do.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Every now and then I fall apart.

And I need you now tonight…

Once upon a time I was…

A total eclipse of the heart, (2X)

Turn Around, Bright Eyes,

Turn Around, Bright Eyes, Turn Around.”
