We're In This Together Now (Sucka)

"Somewheeeeere out theeeeeere, I dreeeeeeeeam of Kaaaaaaage tonight."

I've become impossible
holding on to when
when everything seemed to matter more
the two of us
all used and beaten up
watching fate as it flows down the path we
have chose

you and me
we're in this together now
none of them can stop us now
we will make it through somehow
you and me
if the world should break in two
until the very end of me
until the very end of you

~ Nine Inch Nails

Oh, Trent. When I saw you decked out today in your brand new winter gear, I couldn’t have been more proud.

You looked so gorgeous, so handsome and strong and ready for winter. I was brought back to that fateful day last year when I almost lost you. The accident that had nearly cost you your life, and the the emergency surgery that had followed.

I also reflected today on just how much you have been there for me for the past ten years of friendship; the long cold nights when we cuddled in the snow together, keeping each other warm when we had nowhere else to go; the miles and miles we drove across Canada together during the years I worked as a dancer; all the off-key singing and endless babbling you have put up with from me without ever judging me or criticizing my choices in life; always being there to protect me when I had no one else to turn to, when I was frightened and alone; the way you held me when I wasn’t feeling well and just let me lie there for hours, groaning and feeling sorry for myself.

The best part yesterday when I dropped you off at Canadian Tire was when the mechanic added that extra note to your file:

“Please Call Car Trent. He Likes This.”

And when I went to pick you up this morning:

“Are you here for Trent? His new winter tires look great!”

They sure do, baby. They sure do.

I know I've used this picture over and over and over again. But it's
too damn cold to go outside and take another, so suck it up.



  1. Cold?? Cold? Oh yeah you are in Canadia....well think exact opposite here girl...first hot day of what the experts say will be a Hades like summer...
    looks like I will be just getting about in my leopard print thong for the next few months...trying hard not to scare the children or the little old lady who lives next to me..
    wow i better comment proper...cute name for yer wheels....trent!

  2. ummm...he has a hand growing out of his hip....why is this so?

  3. That is such a cute picture. I bet you've used his mirrors to put on make-up too. Have you ever touched his exhaust pipe?

  4. My car is named Bonnie. We have been through so much.

  5. lol, I just don't know what to do with you Kage, like a summer rose
    needs the sun and rain
    I need your sweet love
    to beat love away

  6. Haha, that's awesome. And I really like that photo!

  7. Have you christened the vehicle as we say in Ireland?

  8. Awwwww that's surprisingly cute. My brother just lost his car :( He went off the road. He's fine but the car isn't. He's going to sell it as spare parts and trade up his bike. He prefers bikes to cars anyway.

  9. There is nothing like a great reliable ride to cheer a woman up! ;)

    I am now filled with guilt that I haven't named my car yet and have owned it over a year. Maybe I'll start a campaign over at my blog to name it.

  10. Anything reliable is awesome, be it a car or a musician or a song or gasp... a person! Lean on your rocks darling, they are there to hold you up!!

  11. I'm re-learning how to comment on blogs so all I have to say is, "Hi" and "I've missed you".

  12. Cute car, cuter owner! Ya snow tires are a good thing. I heard you guys got hit harder then us and it sucks here. Stay warm kiddo! Keep smiling and the shiney side up!

  13. My truck is JLo. Not because I like JLo. But when I bought it, Moooog named it JLo. Why? Because you can put a lot of junk in the trunk.


    JLo also got new tires. They're fat ones.
