I've got an idea for a hilarious art project to exorcise my dating demons.

The idea started as a conversation with a friend over beers about the wacky cast of characters that our respective dating histories have become. The project is an old-school card catalogue of all our ex-boyfriends, with index terms/subject headings such as "Former metalheads who are now Orthodox Jews," "Straight-edge Christian punk rockers," "Performance artists/Magicians," "Drug dealers," and "Graduate students" (among others).

It's going to be called The Library of Congress. (Get it?!)

I think the only way to not cry about the trash heap of my dating past is to just laugh at it instead.
