a small but important lesson for all...
plagiarism. it's naughty. have a peek at her august 24 post.
o, and while you're at it, you may as well check out this too. it just gets better and better...
the cheek of some people. good thing i don't write anything worthwhile plagiarising! ha ha ha, the joys of writing shit...
Virginia Woolf: Orlando. You are a challenge, for
outer events, the outside world, the time etc.
play no importance to you. Your focus is in
writing, in gender issues, and inside your own
head. Self-analysis and exploration of yourself
as well as the outer world hold great
importance to you.

Which literature classic are you?

first time i've been out is *so* long, and it was actually really good! yes, i am suprised...
love that reggae scene, i'd forgotten how good a feeling it is to be a part of it. happy happy... very glad that i went, very glad that i stayed past that initial 5 minutes of going 'o fuck, not another damn pub full of drunk assholes'.
big smile to all the dread-locked kids...
i had the fortune to bump into a few people who i love dearly, and don't see nearly enough of, due to total lifestyle differences. and i remembered tonight: it's not always so hard to be open and friendly and, well, *happy*.
i was thinking about my father, miserable on the other side of the world, and then realised that it was ok to be having a good time with a bunch of strangers, and that i didn't have to be worrying about him. i care a lot, but it's futile to worry. he needs to go through this shit, and hopefully (hopefully!) he'll come out the other end feeling better about himself and his life, and his bloody kids! o, the dramas that are so inevitable in my convoluted family (and in most families too i know). the fear of not being loved, or not loving enough... we tie ourselves in infinite knots and tangles. but it's ok, i've got to stop trying to fix them all, i could so easily spend the rest of my life doing it, and then come to the end and realise that they're still tangled, and i haven't lived my life for me...
so anyways... cornerstone roots... a good night, a content feeling, a smile on my face.
much love to all my friends (especially those reading this, as they're the only ones that count really... ha ha ha... leave a comment damn you all!) and my dear fucked-up family, and all those people who aren't family or friends but still could do with some love.

How random are you?

suddenly the adult world becomes irrelevant, and people play again...
i took a roll of black and white film, my first... hope some of them are worth printing. i'm going to do them in my friend's darkroom, also a first, which is pretty damn exciting.
but anyway... *the snow*'s so purdy! now probably some of you are wondering what the big deal is. the big deal is that we get snow about once a year if we're lucky here!
it's, well, magical. makes everything seem so 'otherworldly' (to use a tosser-ish expression). driving becomes a whole new adventure... like falling into that screensaver, you know the one.... had to keep reminding myself to *look at the damn road*!
i had a nice night, spent it in a warm cosy cafe with a view of the snow through the fogged up windows, drinking feijoa champagne and eating pizza with a jovial crowd... if only more winter nights could be spent in such a way.

*birch tree at the corner of my section, one of the few redeeming features of my 'garden'.

*beauty found in unexpected places these last few days. many long un-remembered memories surfacing.

*breeches and boots and neckties and hats. hmm. i have a thing about women in mens' clothes.

*brains. i've lost mine. help! help! whatever happened to my cutting intellect? my finely tuned rational thinking abilities? my acerbic wit?

*brian. life and sanity saver. :-) leaving in 2 weeks. :-(

*begonia angel wings. my favourite plant. i've been neglecting it, the poor wee dear.
