:: flavors of entanglement ::

It’s been ages since i last heard of Alanis Morrisette. Yes, you’d be surprise at how big a fan i was. Thanks to daddy-o, really. My first exposure to her was from Jagged Little Pill. Favourite song had to be the radio-friendly, “Ironic”.

A traffic jam when you’re already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It’s meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn’t it ironic…don’t you think
A little too ironic…and, yeah, I really do think…


There’s just something about the words in her songs that gets to me. And gawsh, i was what? 12 at the time?? My vocab certainly grew from her. Maybe that’s why some people can’t place me between being a kid and being a matured *girl* of soon-to-be 21. Someone once said, “I can’t place an age on you.”

Heck, some people think i’m old just by the way i speak. Which i constantly DECLARE, “I do NOT speak with an accent.” Such angst. It’s not like it matters what age i am, anyway. I do believe Alanis had a point when she said,

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

Why Alanis Morrisette is currently my heroine-of-the-day :

  • “Thank God for growing up.”
  • “Women are so powerful they’re scary , and the incentive to squash this has been going on for so long that some of us actually believe we’re subordinate.”
  • “The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that i had to serve, so that turned me into thinking i had to save the planet.”
  • “I highly recommend people getting older! There’s less tendency to people-please!”

I’m not really a feminist.

Not really.

There is no difference in what we’re doing in here
That doesn’t show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we’ve the ultimate key to the cause right here, our underneath

“Is what you’re writing who you are, what you really want to be doing?”


“That’s all that matters.”
