"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau

It's been so fucking long! It snowed hella lot, I almost PK'd on the ice, and I'm going back to see the cats tomorrow! (Or... today.) The Killer's Hot Fuss
is probably the best album I heard in a long, long, long time.

Och. Snow, snow y mÃ¡s snow.
It just got worse as I started to type this. New York's probably the prettiest when it snows a lot, because there aren't teems of people and clots of cars in the sidewalks and streets. I'll just sit in the middle of a park (NOT Central Park) and watch the snow. El otoÃ±o es mi estaciÃ³n favorita, pero el invierno es segundo. No me gusta la primavera y el verano. I abhor them. It's just so... warm
. Yech. I went out yesterday, but I'm staying in today, drink a lot of hot niu wei soup
, and watch those DVDs
I bought yesterday in the twirling snow.
"We must go forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!"
Oh, and I am seriously pondering about contemplating leaving... I like nutang, but I have other online things to maintain (e.g., a site, another weblog I write in with much more gusto, trying to keep my e-mails to under 100, but is still at 200+, etc.). I don't really write much here anyway, and am pretty much alone. We (I) shall see...

Another Round of Solidified Water Crystals

That is, I mean, it's snowing again. I know I live in a temperate zone, but this is slightly insane. The vernal equinox is this Saturday, and some of my friends are already back home in the city for spring break. Hehe, it's really funny once you think about it. Alas, I have no break until early April. Oh well. There's always summer. Hot, despicable summer. Actually, I like snow more than the hot sun, so why am I complaining right now? Wait till it's summer, I'll really be whining then, but then I probably won't be online because using my fingers would burn heat, increasing my hotness. And also, this stupid computer is right in front of my window!! Which faces the south!! Which is where the sun is in the northern hemisphere!! I always keep my shades down, so it looks like I'm a hermit, or slightly perverted in some way. As Barney in The Simpsons said, "Aah! Natural light!!"

Noventa y tres punto uno -- AMOR
domingo, 12 de febrero, 2006
It's finally snowing hard. After all these months experiencing unseasonal warmth, we get a blizzard. The snow is accumulating so fast you couldn't find the footprints of a stalker lurking in the snow after five minutes. This is the New York I know.
Edit: Record-breaking snowfall (26.9''), w00t. Take that, 1947!
I've had del.icio.us for a while now, but it's still empty. I don't know if I have time for it. I want to add stuff. I have lots of stuff to add, actually, if I can dig up some old files on my hard drive. It's got an RSS feed! RSS feeds are my new crack. "Is this the free crack giveway?!" (Hehe, Dave Chappelle.)
Okay, I'm going to sleep. For real this time. For every hour of sleep I lose, the closer my complete transformation to the Queen of the Harpies.
