It's easier to complain
but there is beauty in the mundane
A few words
"When we describe the Moon as dead, we are describing the deadness in ourselves. When we find space so hideously void, we are describing our own unbearable emptiness."
~ D.H. Lawrence

"Is the meaning of life defined by its duration? Or does life have a purpose so large that it doesn't have to be prolonged at any cost to preserve its meaning?"

"Living is not good, but living well. The wise man, therefore, lives as well as he should, not as long as he can... He will always think of life in terms of quality not quantity... Dying early or late is of no relevance, dying well or ill is... even if it is true that while there is life there is hope, life is not to be bought at any cost."
~ Seneca

"People will tell you nothing matters, the whole world's about to end soon anyway. Those people are looking at life the wrong way. I mean, things don't need to last forever to be perfect."
~ Daydream Nation

"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories-- if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
~ The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes

"The road now stretched across open country, and it occurred to me - not by way of protest, not as a symbol, or anything like that, but merely as a novel experience - that since I had disregarded all laws of humanity, I might as well disregard the rules of traffic. So I crossed to the left side of the highway and checked the feeling, and the feeling was good. It was a pleasant diaphragmal melting, with elements of diffused tactility, all this enhanced by the thought that nothing could be nearer to the elimination of basic physical laws than deliberately driving on the wrong site of the road."
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

"It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend."
~ William Blake

How much longer...?
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
I think Romeo might have a tumor... He has been looking sick for a few days now, and I'm worried. Tonight I put him on the shower door while I showered, in the hopes that the warmth and humidity would make him feel better. He seemed to like it, but I got a good look at his underside, and there was a big yellow lump there near his leg. :\

He'll be ten this year. I've had him since he was two months old.

Besides being very fluffed up, he hasn't shown too many signs of illness. His appetite is fine, and he's not particularly lethargic, although he's been a lot more gentle the past few days (the way he was before his accident). He's been a little quiet, but he was chirping a lot while I was in the shower. I just hope he's not in pain.

Even though I've experienced the loss of several budgies over the years, it's hard for me to accept that he's going to die someday. It's harder to accept that it might be soon. I have read about budgies living for months even after they've developed a tumor though, so maybe we could be lucky. Romeo has always been very hardy, and he's survived other things that could have killed him. I can't pretend he's not getting old, though. The average lifespan of budgies in captivity is five to eight years normally, and maybe ten to fifteen under ideal conditions. I remember seeing somewhere that someone's budgie even lived to be twenty. I don't expect that much.

I don't have much else to say. This has been consuming my thoughts and it's hard to focus on other things.

Well that was a mistake
Friday, January 17, 2014
Maybe being sick has made me let down my guard.

I talked to this guy briefly on OKC and then let him add me on Skype, thinking he was a harmless dude... Not a good decision, I think.

First off, he sent me his resume for some reason?? I have no idea why. And then he started talking about how he'll be single forever because he doesn't care enough to pursue girls.

And THEN he mentioned that his life goals are to make a lot of money from ad revenue and sleep and lucid dream about girls. >_> Later on in the conversation he said he was content to admire beautiful women "like you" from afar.

I feel like the implication is that he wants to have lucid dreams about me?

Oh also he said he was contemplating making his own dating site where you could find porn with people who look like the people on the site in case you had no luck with dates. I think he was joking but I don't know him well enough to be sure.

My walrus :C
Monday, January 13, 2014
I think I lost my earmuffs somewhere in transit between Portland and here. Maybe they fell out of my bag on the airplane, or maybe they got left in the hotel room... I don't know. All I know is that I can't find them.

This didn't bother me too much until I realized I lost my walrus button with the earmuffs. :\ I don't know if I can get another one, but I was really pleased when I found that because the walrus had a WTF expression and it just felt very... serendipitous to find it.

Serendipity isn't a word I really use (ever) but it's something I like a lot. Well, as opposed to things that are intentionally good, I mean. The word just makes me think of Mary Poppins though.

I bought Choice of the Deathless on Google Play for $2.99 and have been playing it the past day or so... I'm kind of falling into the same pattern with it as I fall into with the Sims, though. I have trouble deviating from what I think is the best path, so I end up playing almost the same way over and over again. You can pick a romantic partner in the story, and the first maybe five playthroughs I picked the same guy. After that, I picked a different guy. There wasn't as much exciting tension with the second guy, but he's more committed and romantic. :P The romance thing isn't that big a part of the story, though. It's kind of just a fun side thing I guess. Maybe I should try playing the story as a lesbian and seeing how that goes.

Transmogrify into peat
Sunday, December 22, 2013
"Why not join the military like me, or don't, or sit in a ditch and slowly transmogrify into peat"

I should play Middens again.

I've been trying to figure out the lyrics to "Borrowed Time" by Night Beds. Something about this song is deeply satisfying me right now, but the lyrics are incredibly hard to understand. It's been almost two hours now that I've been listening to it, and I've got most of the lyrics I think, but there are certain bits that just elude me.

This version is easier to understand than the album version, although it doesn't sound as good...

And these are the lyrics I have so far:

I know I've sought forgotten dreams
I till and pined for you to listen [Not sure about this line]
No stone unturned is left to keep
I give you now my own admission

I'm living on some borrowed time
And I never understood why
Paltry signs led me from my homestead state
Now I'm racing west in some ???

Morning light breaks as I tow this throat
Driving through these lonesome country roads
Forest lake[?] hidden[?] by tethered trees [REALLY not sure about this one]
Timber breaking as I weep[?]
But it's all forbidden, it's all forbidden
It's all forbidden, I know, I know

Oh God, I've forgotten how to pray
Make me a man like you did with ape [The last word sounds like "Abe" to me but that doesn't make sense, so I thought it might be "ape"]
Faith can carry a man to his grave
Would you bury my bones by the garden gate?
'Cause it's all forbidden, it's all forbidden
It's all forbidden, I know, I know

Heaven's in the corner 'bout[by?] now, let's face it
Heaven's in the corner, somehow we'll make it
Heaven's in the corner 'bout now
Heaven's in the corner somehow

Now the sky unfolds its blackened robe
Life as it was will never know
Go on, sing your pardon, see this through
And maybe, maybe it might move you
And it's all forbidden, it's all forbidden
It's all forbidden, it's all forbidden

Heaven's in the corner 'bout now, let's make it
Heaven's in the corner, somehow we'll face it
Heaven's in the corner 'bout now
Heaven's in the corner somehow


Any ideas?
