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."
"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

Real life vs. fiction
Tuesday, April 15, 2008
Ah, I'd forgotten just how great the first Abarat book was. I mean, the second one is awesome too, just saying.
I started reading it again (I finished The Troll King, The Troll Queen, and The Troll Treasure by John Vorholt already).
When I first read it, or... looked through it, I was a little scared by some of the pictures, but now I love it.
And I was just thinking about Candy and her... escape... from Chickentown.
She just leaves the school and runs off.
So I was considering the practicalities of doing that in real life. There are some problems that are pretty obvious, such as the fact that, should I ever attempt such an act, there would not be a magical land I could just go to and have adventures in.
Also, if I ever did run off, I think my options would be to become a hobo or die.
Not so great, there. :|
My mom made me go hiking with her again. This time the trails had slightly smaller amounts of horse crap strewn over them. Key word "slightly".
But we did get more fruit bars. So, yay. :D
Mehhhh mac and cheese
Monday, April 14, 2008
My mom asked me to make macaroni and cheese ('cause she doesn't want to make dinner).
I really don't want to eat it. :|
Don't get me wrong, it tastes perfectly fine, I just think I'd throw up if I had to eat some right now. Too rich. I think the most I can manage is some juice. Watered down juice.
Since Rasputin failed me, I ordered The Art of Falling Apart from Amazon. Hopefully it's actually going to go through this time.
...The mac and cheese looks all bubbly and browned-on-the-top...

My long streak of popularity is over (along with dave's , apparently)
I was just thinking about what my dad told me about content on the internet.
Content = what you contribute, not recycle
So how many people out there actually post content, instead of the latest lolcat or hilarious someone-else's-picture-of-whatever?
We're out of fruit bars. :'( The fruit leather is NOWHERE near as good.
I'm going to go eat some Cheerios...

Well, I made those cinnamon buns.
Since I altered the original recipe, I don't know what I was expecting, but what came out of the oven tasted like biscuits.
Granted, they were good, cinnamon biscuits, but biscuits nonetheless.
And cinnamon buns aren't supposed to taste like biscuits.
I'm pretty sure this would not have happened if I'd stuck to the recipe and used all purpose flour instead of one cup whole wheat flour, one cup protein powder, and a half cup of all purpose flour.
I also used heavy cream instead of buttermilk. (Heh, not really a good substitute there) In the process explanation they said a recipe they took from used heavy cream, but they replaced it with buttermilk and added half a teaspoon of baking soda to balance it, so I figured it couldn't do much harm to just go with what they had before.
Ah well. It's not that the finished product tastes bad, it's just that it's biscuits.
Unbaked in the pan.
Baked cinnamon swirl biscuit.
Whenever I see this couple pose, with the guy behind the girl, he ALWAYS looks creepy. Plus here, he appears to be wearing a diaper with a feather duster attatched on his head.
I'm addicted to these fruit bar things we got from Target yesterday. There's only one left (out of six) and I have to save it for my mom. :( I hope they get more soon.
Quite hot today
Saturday, April 12, 2008
Dunno what the high was, but it was at least 90 degrees outside today. Crazy stuff. Just a few days ago it was cold...
I'm not sure what to write about...
Planning on making cinnamon buns sometime in the near future. No glaze. I don't need extra sweetness...
Um... Yeah. Nothing else I can think of. Short post.

So maybe I don't have that specific picture (yet)
Thursday, April 10, 2008
I have those other pictures I may or may not have promised earlier.
Mushy banana bread that I didn't want to eat. Alice shook it up in the container and it turned into balls!
She was looking at it and was like "what the hell?" Then she took off the lid and we saw the balls and all burst out laughing for some strange reason beyond my comprehension.
No pictures of my new shirt. My apologies.

Oh god make it stop!
Lil Sis's expression is so great in this one.
Waiting is intense

George R.R. Martin still isn't done with A Dance with Dragons.
Clive Barker is working on the third Abarat.
There will most likely be more Edge Chronicles books soon. (I've read them all so far, and actually have all the hardbacks too) Perhaps I should just go out and buy The Lost Barkscrolls...
[I gave up on the Spiderwick Chronicles a while ago, didn't interest me enough and were not a very good value for their size]
Maybe I should just reread all of the series books I'm waiting on and hope it won't take too long for the next ones to come out. :/
I have the Silence of the Lambs to read, and Hannibal, but I want to get Red Dragon before I start that trilogy. (I say "trilogy" because Hannibal Rising sounds like a joke; it came out alongside the movie)
I have a couple of pictures but unfortunately I'm not using the front computer, so I can't upload them. :|
Must... finish... paper...
