Are You Mind, Body, or Spirit?

Yes, everyone else is in bed, where am I??? Playing around on the computer because I have become what me ole man has affectionately dubbed a night owl. Although, I could be a vampire, I have been known to hiss at the sun from time to time.

What's Your Celtic Animal?

Surprising that my celtic animal is a raven. Pretty cool, though, as it seems to sum me up during this portion of my life where everything is up in the air and hinges on my education changing things around.

Year end questions stolen from apocalypticbob
01. What did you do in 2008 that you'd never done before?

04. Did anyone close to you die?

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I don't have a song--I have a poem (Gobblin Market by Christina Rossettie and my favorite line is this:
"We must not look at goblin men
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed,
Their hungry thirsty roots"

Writer's Block: Improvised Parenting!!?!
Let's say you're a hobgoblin for 24 hours. What sort of havoc would you wreak? Or: If a baby of unknown origins suddenly fell into your care, would you keep it? What would you name it?
 This depends on HOW the baby suddenly fell into my care. Was the baby dropped on my doorstep? Was it given to me by legal ways to care for? If the baby was dropped on my doorstep then I would have to go to Child Services and report that a child was abandoned and then offer to care for it until they could find a proper home or offer to legally adopt it. If the baby was place in my care legally, I would care for it as if it were my own. 

If the baby had no name and it was a girl- Tabitha...boy- Zachary.

I know
I know I just posted, but (instead of working on that stupid homework, like I SHOULD be doing) I'm bored, and antsy, and depressed, and anxious...and blah blah blah...So, in truth, can't concentrate long enough to get the first academic sentence down.

Random ramblings:
Mela had a rowboat, the rowboat had a bell, Mela went to Heaven, but the rowboat went to Hell.

veni vida vicci 


Excuse me, would you mind not farting while I save the universe?

The universe is permeated with the odor of turpentine!!!!

Oh, so it's gonna blow up, but (since it's Swiss made) it keeps perfect time.

Frodis is as frodis does...

It's a PLANT!!!

The fish ate my lamp.

The dog ate my homework.

Who am I

 Sitting in this "box" wishing my life away. Things just aren't what they seem on the outside. Looking inward there is a never ending blackhole. On the outside there appears to be someone with a strong head and a willful heart. Inward there is nothing but a blackhole of despair. Catch me off guard and you'll see me staring off into space. What must go through your mind when you see that. Ask me if I am alright and I'll lie saying everything is fine while looking directly at you because I can be very convincing. Only those who are extremely close to me will know I am lying, they can see right through me, but those people are very few and not around much. For I spend most of my time alone. Sometimes I prefer it that way, being alone. That way noone can see me when I end up attempting something stupid and not succeed. And I don't have to "put on face" and pretend everything is just "hunky-dory" when it really isn't. Then other times I wish I had a friend to lean on, to talk to, laugh with, to shout "what next" when something goes wrong (which seems often nowadays). Sometimes I feel like I am reaching out, but there is nothing there to grab hold to. Just an empty vacuum of infinite space staring back at me, mocking me, laughing at me. Maybe if I pressed a button or flipped a switch I could be transported elsewhere, somewhere friends are and always will be. The trouble is finding the right "coordinates" for such a place.

New Year Blessing
My Wish for You in 2008
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for  $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words ............
May 2008 be the best year of your life!!!

To quote The Doctor: "Humans. Are. Stupid."
Enough said.
For now.
