Knowing exactly who she was talking about (I probably have mentioned that they are my favorite people on multiple occasions), I screamed a little and ran to see what the crap my mum was reading, hoping it was written by an untrustworthy two year old or something.
Unfortunately, it was a trustworthy site. Ben Gibbard and Zooey Deschanel. THEY WERE SO CUTE TOGETHER! I mean, look at this.
Maybe I should mention that this picture is also on my wall. I like to stare at it in my free time.
Ben, how could this be? When she sings, YOU HEAR A FREAKIN SYMPHONY!
Zooey, why? HE HAS AWESOME HAIR!
Earlier yesterday, before all this madness, I was in Ceramics class, hummin' myself a little Elton John while painting a sculpture of Ben Gibbard (obsessed a little?). I thought to myself, What a beautiful world this is, where my two heroes, in whom I loved before I even knew of their marriage, are actually married! Then I went on to thinking, Man, that would be hard on both sides, though, with Ben always on tour and Zooey always at work. They must love each other a dang lot.
Life sucks, my friends.
As you might have picked up on, I am pretty depressed that things didn't work out between them. But they both agreed on it, so its probably for the best. I wouldn't want them to be unhappy.
And maybe we will get another album like "Plans" out of this.
