Somebody that I used to know

Today was a crummy day.  In my job I wind up coming across a lot of people who are…just…fucking evil, and it’s my job to try and make those situations better.  Some days it gets even an experienced reluctant warrior down.

Michaelyn sent me this video.  It made me smile.  Hooray for making crummy days a little less crummy.

    I liked this version you posted, but Gotye did the original video really good it needs some linkage and credit for anyone who hasn’t already seen it. I can’t honestly watch it too much right now because of how strongly sad its making me feel…but I’ll share for others!

    I love it. Thanks

    Why was today crummy? Was it more than just your tiff with the friendly atheist?

  • leni

    Oh I love it!

    Sorry for the crappy day and hope you’re feeling better about it soon :) Evil people suck. They’re always ruining someone’s day, or life.

    I don’t know what people to did to feel better before there was youtube. I think we all just wallowed in the dark with Joy Division records. And drank a lot.
