Today has been extremely eventful. What have I done? well, i sat around in my underwear for a while, ate some cheese, instant mashed potatos and plain yogurt (it’s v. cold outside. cannot leave the confines of my room), did some homework (as usual), and watched a horrible episode of dawsons creek. (i will elaborate later)
Why eventful? Because I realized it’s almost christmas.
She was his girl; he was her boyfriend
Soon be his wife; take him as her husband
A surprise on the way, anyday, anyday
One healthy little giggling dribbling baby boy
The wise men came three made their way
To shower him love
While he lay in the hay
Shower him with love love love
Love love love
Love, love is all around
Christmas Song by Dave Mathews Band
i’m so happy. it’s almost christmas for several reasons: (a) today we had the first snow. a few sputtering flakes of white, but it was definetly snow. (b) it’s gotten cold like its winter. (c) i went to visit m䴴 and he was wearing a “santa’s helper” t shirt. (a)+(b)+(c) = time to put in the christmas cd and hang some lights - am currently listening to “blue christmas” and am fighting with little white lights.
This wil be a blue christmas in dawson’s creek.
In Episode 503 Dawson makes the life altering decision to quit film school in LA and move to Boston, so he can be closer to Joey, his soulmate. Of course Joey and Dawson aren’t in a relationship, and I don’t see them being in one for a very long time. Dawson just feels that it’s right. Well anyway, he goes home to tell his Mom and Dad. His Dad is angry and tells him he is disappointed in him, and not to forget that Dad loves him. Then Dawsons’ dad turned his back and left. As Dawsons is driving out of their driveway, towards Boston, you see Dad in the shadows, watching Dawson with such an intense look of sadness, i couldn’t take it. I was glad they cut away to the next shot fairly quickly.
Well in the last twenty seconds of the show, you see Dawson’s dad driving along the highway at night singing to some happy tune. He’s eating icecream. As he’s bopping around, his hand hits the stearing wheel causing the icecream to fall. and i already know what’s going to happen, I just can’t believe it. Mitch looks at the fallen icecream, and when he looks up bright lights are in his eyes. the music gets really intense. screen goes black. and he’s dead. stop all the clocks. the funeral is next week. I just feel like such crap, because the last interaction Dawson had with his dad was one of disappointment
it’s a bittersweet symphony, this life - the verve
