Tennishack and Layla are just telling us about their life adventures

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Just so you all know -

I am moving out today, and might not have a computer all week. If I dont I will post every couple days or so.

Next Sunday I'm off to NY.

I won't be posting regularly again untill around Sept3 or whenever it is after that, that I get internet hooked up.

Have fun watching the US Open and telling stories

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I hope you're wrong about the computer, Rebecca. It will be even more quiet here without you. We'll miss you.

But you'll have lots of stories to tell when you get back! Let us know how the stalking went.

Have fun in New York! We'll be on the lookout for you.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

And now for something completely different:

Alex takes Layla home and while they are driving, her head is reeling with all that has happened. She begins to feel that revenge is the perfect medicine doctor would never prescribe, so she decides to go for it. As they are saying goodbye on the steps of her house she makes her move. Lowering her gaze to Alex’s [b]luscious[/] lips, she murmurs invitingly:

He motioned to me
That he wanted to leave
And go somewhere warm
Where we'd be alone
I do not know, what's going on
But I'm guessing it's an all night thing

If it's an all night thing
Nobody is gonna make it end
And if it doesn't begin
Don't worry that I'll that offense
And if it's an all night thing
And we fall like a tear falling
To the ground
I'll never come around
And you'll never hear a word from me
If it's an all night thing

I walked along, feeling at ease
And falling like rain
Into his scheme
He won't let on what that will be
But I'm guessing
It's an all night thing

If it's an all night thing
Nobody is gonna make it end
And if it doesn't begin
Don't worry that I'll take offense
And if it's an all night thing
And we fall like a tear falling
To the ground
I'll never come around
And you'll never hear a word from me
If it's an all night thing

They kiss and disappear into the building.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Waking up in her bed, Layla stretches herself contentedly and rolls her eyes. “What on earth was I thinking marrying a younger man?!” But then she remembers what she was thinking and begins to weep hysterically. Alas, her mental state is highly unstable and her husband’s betrayal was the last straw. She can’t pretend to be a cold-hearted bitch anymore. She decides she earned her right to wallow in self-pity for a while, so she turns to her favorite pastime and switches on her beloved karaoke machine to sing a couple of pathetic, self-loathing songs. Notice that she can't resist taping herself. She grabs the microphone and howls:

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.

I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.

He's running out again,
He's running out
He's run run run running out...
Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special...

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.
I don't belong here.

The other song is in the same vein, if slightly less sarcastic:

sleepwalking through the all-nite drugstore
baptized in flourescent light
i found religion in the greeting card aisle
now i know hallmark was right
and every pop song on the radio
is suddenly speaking to me
yeah, art may imitate life
but life imitates t.v.
'cuz you've been gone exactly two weeks
two weeks and three days
and let's just say that things look different now
different in so many ways

i used to be a superhero
no one could touch me
not even myself
you are like a phone booth
i somehow stumbled into
and now look at me
i am just like everybody else

if i was dressed in my best defenses
would you agree to meet me for coffee
if i did my tricks with smoke and mirrors
would you still know which one was me
if i was naked and screaming
on your front lawn
would you turn on the light and come down
screaming, there's the asshole
who did this to me
stripped me of my power
stripped me down

and now i'm a different person
different in so many ways
tell me what did you like about me
don't say my strength and daring
'cuz now i think i'm at your mercy
and it's my first time for this kind of thing

i used to be a superhero
i would swoop down and save me
from myself
you are like a phone booth
that i somehow stumbled into
and now look at me
i am just like everybody else
i am worse than everybody else

Unfortunately, she forgets to remove the tape from the deck…

Meanwhile on the tour:

Juan Carlos is overcome with jealousy as he watches Alex and Layla blowing kisses at each other on the big screen in the player’s lounge. Alex had just won and he doesn’t exactly relish the prospect of playing him tomorrow. “Of course, she doesn’t trip and fall over for Alex. Why does she always have to make ME the laughing stock. Figures he would get all the rewards” he grumbles.

Later on at the press conference, Juan Carlos refuses to answer any questions regarding his wife and as a consequence is fined 1,000,000 $ and has to return his porche. Upset at the thought of losing his favorite car, he decides to play beyond par tomorrow and lose on purpose. Unfortunately his scheme will backfire. Invisible as he is to the media and the ATP managers, no one will notice his quiet form of protest and will assume he just, well… lost to a better player.
