      when I get home, I'm gonna attach pictures of the apartment... a) because you want to see it and b) because you guys have to see what Jarek brought home yesterday. Scared me half to death, though adorable and talky... and not alive.

      I want to have a journabar, but no one is online!

      also, I want to play with people. Tell me what games you like, and let's talk about becoming xbox friends too. You know you want me to roll over you with a katamari. It's like everyone's secret deviant fetish.

      We'll discuss mailouts later. Must sort out both works, which want far too much and offer far too little.

    • a truncation of temporal awareness

      I was walking down Granville- and I was, in truth, a little zoned out- today when a group of what appeared to be homeless or down on their luck people turned on me. They followed me a ways, with the leader screaming, "You bitch! You're covering your ears to the cries of life on the street!"

      I was surprised; yes, I was in fact wearing headphones, but at the time in question, I was just using them as earmuffs because the weather's been a bit snappy here as of late. I didn't actually get a chance to formulate a reply- in fact, a couple of business men stepped in between us and the instigators melted back off into the crowd.

      What does one say to that? I am certainly not cruel to the destitute- on numerous occasions I have given out money, food, and the gloves off my hands. To be marked as someone who is blind to the realities of city inequalites is fairly inaccurate, as I keenly believe that one misstep is all that separates myself or anyone else from a similar lifestyle.

      I found it interesting that my apparent use of personal electonics denotes- in the eyes of some- that I am practicing escapism on the scale of our entire reality. But sitting in the library today, I thought about where those ideas might come from... and when you break it down, it's not all that far fetched.

      Digital technology has evolved beyond the "global village"- we're living in a never ending cube farm. There are few places in the world we can't reach with an email- our music, our entertainment, our social interaction is all on demand. We shop, bank, love and live within the confines of the net, which compensates by creating an illusion of limitlessness. Perhaps there is a chance that lost in our little iworlds, we've shortened the distance and time we've always known as necessary to life to so small a gap that we've lost the real space between ourselves and others.

      I don't feel like I've lost touch with temporality; I enjoy long walks, pointless drives, and close, tangible social interaction with others. But perhaps there's something here- the social inequalities brought on by our technology are not lessened....they're actually more efficient. How easy it must be to slip on your headphones and ignore the unkempt malodorous stranger who prophecies the apocalypse in the flickering street light outside the trashy night club. Our ideas of racism, classism, bigotry- it's all facilitated by technology. It feels like we're reliving the societal ideals of the 1920s... does this mean that there is another depression in our near future?

      I think a lot about this sort of thing (not only because it's part of my field of study) because I experience it on a daily basis. I'm just waiting to go to lecture because I'm early and I thought I might share a little glimpse of the nonsense that goes on inside my head when I'm not all "ORLY?"

      Feel free to ignore, though I wouldn't mind chitty chatting with you about it.

      School started this week. Lucinda and Ikea are fighting over who gets more of my time. In general I feel ragged, but oddly elated. I think that knowing that mexico is comingup is a large part of it. I also can't argue with having my amazing friends and supermegahappyfuntime romantic life as well.

      I realized today that even with all the othershit, I have a pretty phenomenal life.

      no marriage, lordy, you're all overreactors. I'm back at school today. Can't say I'm pleased about that, nor about working two jobs again....

      But mexico is in three weeks.
      Oh yes.

      I am very excited, and I promise I will take so many pictures you'll wish I never actually went.
      Win.

      Also, wii console numbers, plllzzzzzz

      I love photography. I've been doing it since high school, and up until this past week I only ever owned a Nikon SLR film camera (I'm completely against those little $99 digital cameras, sorry! smiley2.gif ). But I finally got this moderately professional digital camera, and with the right software for editing photos (Aperture 2 loaded on a MacBook Pro) I'm able to take (and create) some really nice pictures. I went to a wedding this past weekend, so that's my first project (I need to edit 286 photos for the bride and our friends), but after that I plan to use the camera for recreational use and once I have some new pictures I'll definitely post them. I don't know if I'll put them in my images or if I'm going to put together a website and just post a link somewhere, it'll depend on how many pictures I have. But I'll definitely be letting people here know. smiley8.gif


      Okay, back to my story and being creative. I'm going to ride this "creativeness wave" as long as I can.

      If you like interview with a vampire you should read memnoch the devil,
      It really gives a vulnerability to lestat and in turn make him a real badass
      After reading that book it seems he has plateaued.
