From Eurydice, by Sarah Ruhl [Jun. 10th, 2006|05:51 pm]
EUDYDICE and her FATHER in the string room.

EURYDICE: Orphus never liked words. He had
his music. He would get a funny look on his
face and I would say what are you thinking
about and he would always be thinking about

If we were in a restaurant sometimes I
would get embarassed because Orpheus
looked sullen and wouldn't talk to me and I
thought people felt sorry for me. I should have
realized that women envied me. Their
husbands talked too much.

But I wanted to talk to him about my
notions. I was working on a new philosophical
system. It involved hats.

This is what it is to love an artist: The moon
is always rising above your house. The houses
of your neighbors look dull and lacking in
the moonlight. But he is always going away from
you. Inside his head there is always something
more beutiful.

Orpheus said the mind is like a slide ruler. It can
fit around anythig. Words can mean
anything. Show me your body, he said.
It only means one thing. Or maybe two or
three things. But only one thing at a time.

Dreams [Jun. 10th, 2006|11:19 am]
Crazy dream last night.

Somehow, people were able to slowly release their minds, and allow themselves to drift out of existence, then fall through reality, only to appear somewhere else. Only it was really hard to do. I'm not sure how much of the population could do it--I could, and it was normal, but I don't remember if I saw anyone else do it. I spent a large portion of the dream trying to get it right---when I did, it was incredible. Everything relaxed in a very particular way, then I could put my hand and face through things, then I was somewhere else. I realized right at the end of the dream that the process was just like falling asleep---you lose focus of everything, start thinking of other things, then suddenly you're dreaming. Hmmmmm....

Also, it was my mother's birthday---I had to run around and find things, find my sister, my uncle---(this was why I was trying to drift--I needed to get to other places, and it was the fastest way to get around)---- because she was tired (even though it was only 8pm or so/dusk), and she needed to fall asleep. I was also looking for a glass of wine for her, but only ended up finding a bottle of gin. So I poured a big glass of it, and left it sitting in a tent, hoping that would do.
I also spent a lot of time sitting and thinking---and I had cancer, as several other people did in the dream. The doctors had said I was terminal, unlike the other people. So I was coming to terms with that. I talked a lot with a variety of home and kenyon people---dan, lily, hannah, more. It was strange.

A central tennant of the reality-drifting was that if you thought you were going to hit the table, you would. So you had to forget where the table was in front of you, or better yet do it with nothing in front of you. Then you could drift.

I may or may not spend some large amount of time today trying to do this.

More wisdom from my sister (this one is actually from one of her friends):

"Eagles may soar, but weasles don't get sucked into jet engines."

Words to live by.

We've always been a family that thinks "outside the box".


In first grade, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, my sister said:

"A Fruit bat."

Alright---since I've been on a bit of a geek kick since seeing the last movie...

If you were one of the x-men (or let's extend it to marvel characters...give people a wider range), who would you be and why?

Extra points if you give one for me too, or any one of our mutual acquaintances that fit.

I've got a couple...read after you respond.

While we're talking about superhero stuff---anyone else heard Abe's rant about Mr. Fantastic? It's something like this:

Mr. Fantastic is a HUGE dick. What the hell? Could he be more pretentious?
Look at the names: Human torch--turns himself into fire. Fine. Invisible woman. Turns invisible. There's a pattern here. The Thing. IS a big...thing. Fair. Mr. Fantastic....bends. And extends a lot. What the hell? What in the world is fantastic about that? It has nothing to do with his power...his name should be Mr. Bendy. Or Mr. Extends. And frankly, his power is the lamest out of all of them. Seriously. Not that fantastic.

Holy crap! You are:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The one guy who EVERYONE wanted to see in the movies! Gambit just kicks ass. If he can't obliterate someone by hucking kinetically charged cards at them, he can beat them to death with his quarterstaff. AND he's a pimp. So what are you doing on this site, anyway? Shouldn't you be out stomping people's shit in right now?

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 33% on Mutations

If you liked my test, send it to your friends!
The Which X-Man Are You Test


Saw X3. Enjoyed it.

I've switched over to listening to the classical music station in the car, especialy at night. Very soothing, more pleasent I've realized than the 90s alternative station I've had it at. Also, no comericials.

More later.
