Song of the day: Trouble

[in Bulgarian]

The song that best describes my day this Friday is most definitely Elvis Presley's Trouble, from the soundtrack to his King Creole movie.

If you're looking for trouble
You came to the right place
If you're looking for trouble
Just look right in my face

I was born standing up
And talking back
My daddy was a green-eyed mountain jack
Because I'm evil, my middle name is misery
Well I'm evil, so don't you mess around with me!

I've never looked for trouble
But I've never ran
I don't take no orders
From no kind of man

I'm only made out
Of flesh, blood and bone
But if you're gonna start a rumble
Don't you try it on alone
Because I'm evil, my middle name is misery
Well I'm evil, so don't you mess around with me!

And just in case you're wondering, no, I'm not whining or depressed or anything. If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that when I'm depressed, I should never write in public, speak in public, or do anything that will leave a lasting impression of my current state of mind - for it will pass, and any traces left will only serve to bring me down many more times in the future when I come back to them.

No, the reason I've picked Trouble for the song of the day is simply that today is one of those days that I either let myself get sucked into trouble on someone else's whim and suggestion, or, conversely, I play the fiddle to someone else's dancing right into an alluringly disguised trap.- pretty much starting at midnight with a visit to Vasil's (and Velin's) place for a quick game of Worms, then plodding on through an ICQ conversation in the early hours of the morn, then on with some weird goings-on at work, then wheedling a close friend into wasting a couple of hours for a quiet talk over a cup of coffee and a quick stroll through a park... and Eris only knows what the rest of the evening holds for me!
