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

Crane flies
Thursday, April 11, 2013
It's weird when you've gone your whole life thinking something is called something and it's actually not that at all.

I grew up calling canker sores cold sores, and vice versa. The internet has educated me as to which is the proper term, but it's something I'm still getting used to.

I've been taking horribly timed naps and staying up far too late, and tonight and last night when I went to brush my teeth in the wee hours of the morning there were giant bugs in the bathroom.

Okay, well not really "giant" ones. But big ones.

Last night there was a big cockroach (by my standards-- I had never seen a cockroach in my house prior to this year) in the bathroom, and after dousing it with Windex and then screaming as it crawled towards me (waking my mom in the process), my mom and I teamed up and she captured that little shit in a jar. It died in there from Windex poisoning, but the point of the jar was to show my dad, because apparently I'm the only one who's been seeing the sudden INFESTATION OF ROACHES IN MY HOUSE. Gotta get this damn place fumigated, jeez. I'm seriously afraid to walk around in the dark because there could be bugs lurking on the floor.

Tonight I went to brush my teeth marginally earlier and right in the middle of my brushing, this huge crane fly came out of freakin' nowhere and started flying around the bathroom. After grabbing the Windex and playing a bit of first person shooter with it, I managed to shoot it down into the sink and watched it twitch until it died. And hey, no screaming this time, though I was certainly muttering panicked obscenities under my breath.

I guess on the plus side, the bathroom is probably cleaner now because I sprayed Windex almost literally everywhere and had to wipe everything down, but at the same time I kind of also sprayed Windex all over the toothbrushes on the counter, so uh, I hope the rinsing I did was thorough enough.

Where was I going with this. Oh yeah, crane flies. I always thought they were called mayflies until just now, when I Googled them. I mean, mayflies still makes more sense to me because these assholes don't start showing up until Spring usually, but I guess I should call them by their proper name to avoid confusion.

Goddamn, I really hate all these bugs. I can still feel my heart pounding.

I guess I'll just snuggle up to my cuddly OX and try to sleep. That might make me feel better.


Oh my god WHAT IS THIS

I think it goes without saying that OX is my favorite Ugly Doll but this is ridiculous.

Also I think that the quality of Ugly Dolls has maybe gone down since they started? Or not the quality but like, I dunno, my new cuddly OX has a red fleece tongue and my old OX has a kind of rust-colored felt tongue and while it's not a huge difference, I think the rust felt is better. I still love it, but I can't help but wonder if they're cutting corners or putting more effort into rehashing old characters than coming up with new stuff, etc.

This is cute though.

This one is cute until you take it out of hug position...

So I have been playing Middens.

Here is a character's story from the game.

I am not sure what the game is about or what I am supposed to do in it. I just feel hypnotized by the different environments and the odd things the random characters say.

Spring quarter starts for me tomorrow. :|

Indie gaming again
Sunday, April 7, 2013
It's been awhile since I the last time I really sought out indie games to play. Three years, just about.

I don't think I'll actually play Paradis Perdus, but I found the description interesting:

The game is about not belonging. You are the bad guy, you are killing everything you touch. The world you are in is beautiful and green, but the moment you get into it, you start infecting everything, and the world starts decaying, until it eventually ceases to exist. You can choose to exit the world, and then it will heal itself, but then you donít get to enjoy it of course, because youíre not there any more.

This WOULD be a game made by French people.


I've attempted Mirror Stage again... Was kind of jolted by a sudden feeling that I related to elements in the game.


And then there's this depressing game I have yet to figure out how to win:

Gamer Mom

Oh good lord I hope I don't ever end up like that. Though... I'm pretty sure that won't be a concern, since I have absolutely no interest in WoW.

Finally, pictures
Monday, April 1, 2013
I took this almost a month ago on my way home from school. >.>

Sad bike man.

When Lucy and I went to an estate sale this guy was sitting in one of the rooms.

His shirt says "Geek by nature. Linux by choice."

This was also at the estate sale. I'm not sure what it is.

It's hard to tell in this picture (Grrr, phone camera with no macro settings), but someone penciled in an afro on this guy.

I saw this on the posting board at school. Not sure what to make of it.

At the hotel in San Francisco I was flipping through the movies and shows up for rent, and out of boredom and some curiosity looked at the adult offerings. The titles of the films they offered were very entertaining.

My boyfriend and I were discussing what the point of offering adult films in the rooms is. I guess if you really needed to get your rocks off, and you didn't know the internet existed or didn't want to pay the hotel to access the wifi, you could purchase one of the ridiculously expensive movies, but it just seemed highly improbable that somebody actually would. (The last title cracked me up the most, by the way)

The Prop 8 Dog! Two Zog dogs in one bun.

This was from a hot dog stand called Zog Dogs in San Francisco. The name reminded me of this flash animation: ZOGG

I made a perch for my birds today. We got this holder from the feed store that lets you use your own branch, so I sawed off a stick and attached it.

So far they seem to like it.
