Six Feet Under [21 Oct 2007|09:51pm]
Brenda: I think it's all just totally random.
Nate: Really?
Brenda: Yeah. We Live, we die, ultimately nothing means anything.
Nate: How can you live like that?
Brenda: I don't know. Sometimes I wake up so fucking empty I wish I'd never been born, but what choice do I have?

i like the show. it's just strange to finally be getting back to something that Erika got me started on having had her on my mind lately. whatever.

I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night
In The cold cold night

Comment and I will give you 3 interests on your interests list and 3 icons for you to explain.

NICKED FROM [info]nervoustic


mobius transformations
Mobius Transformations are a particular type of function on the set of complex numbers that have certain nice properties (see the entry on MathWorld).  Plus, the name is cool.

The class of pharmaceuticals that relieve anxiety.  Examples include Valium and Ativan.  Very useful.

The thing that causes me to use the previous interest.

they're all sort of along the same lines...

Clive Owen in Sin City.  Protective and exceedingly skillful.  And dark and mysterious.

Val Kilmer in Spartan.  I'd tell you about the role in more detail, but you'd do better to see the film.  It might be my favorite Mamet film.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs.  Really, is there anything cooler than Mr. Blonde?  It's the combination of hard-core evil with the cup and straw, the loosened tie, and the black & white.  Plus, Michael Madsen is awesome as a bad guy.

i fear that something has come loose and is about to break. i'm unglued, unhinged, unstable. or maybe just unsure.

more another time.

a lack of substance... or maybe not? [12 Apr 2007|11:45pm]
since i haven't posted in forever and since someone else posted one of those "just posting so you know i'm alive" posts in her journal, i figured i'd post. plus, i figured i'd share the porno mime:
Invalid video URL.
(or, since that doesn't seem to work, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFSIm3Zeecg)

i should have gone to bed, but i'm compulsively checking my email waiting for a message from a girl i've only heard from once and i'm being overly obsessive and hopeful without any real reason.

weekend suckage [19 Mar 2007|01:39am]
This weekend sucked. I spent nearly every minute grading or taking care of basic bodily functions like eating, sleeping, etc.

And I didn't get everything done.



At least it's almost spring break and I've only got a bit less than one quarter to go before I'm done with this place.

I want to get in the car and drive fast with the windows down and the radio blasting.

I want to find some place to go where I can park and get out and feel the air and look up at the sky (I think I want a fucking cigarette--ick)... I'm not sure it's really Spring-ish enough outside for what I'm thinking since I haven't been outside since coming home from work on Friday. I have to be up in about 4-5 hours to go back.

i got to watch the sun set on my drive home, even as late as i left work

i took the new job; i start in mid-June.

i'm lonely and lost.

i hate job searches [08 Mar 2007|02:11am]
I have been up far too late far too many times in the last few months. I still don't feel like I'm sleeping properly/normally/normally-even-for-me.

I have a job offer, but it's all coming at me so fast that I'm not sure what to do. It troubles me that my first instinct is to just take the offer because it's there. It's like eating food because it's in front of me (and I really shouldn't do that without more thought either). I spent the past hour writing an email in response to the email offering the job, trying to ask for the weekend to decide and asking several questions about the job.

limitations [23 Feb 2007|01:28am]
it's interesting, i think i've reached the limits of how much stuff i can do and i think this might be the first time in my adult life that i'm really maxed out on what i can handle doing simultaneously.

frankly, this kinda sucks. but it's interesting to smack into this kind of limit not really having known it was there. and it's interesting that i feel like i'm right at the limit, not over the limit.

House: Are you going to base your whole life on who you got stuck in a room with?
Eve: I'm going to base this moment on who I'm stuck in a room with. It's what life is. It's a series of rooms and who we get stuck in those rooms with adds up to what our lives are.

menage a menagerie [21 Jan 2007|11:24pm]
Man: I thought we had something special, something transcendent, and then I was dumped for a lesbian goat.
Woman: Poor boy.
M: I tried to win her back. I brought her flowers. She ate them. I rubbed myself with lanolin; nothing worked. She said I was too conservative for her. I said I wasn't. She said prove it. I said how. She said do it with me and the goat.
W: And you did?
M: No!... I just watched.
W: You watched a sheep and a goat.
M: And a cow.
W: A menage a trois.
M: And a goose.
W: A menage a quatre.
M: And two pigs.
W: A menage a menagerie.
M: Yes.
W: That must've been some turn-on.
M: No, it was awful! I thought what she and I had was magical, I, I, I... (Breaking down:) I loved her.
W: Buddy, you're in deep sheep.

i should have been in bed long ago.

i've got too much to say, no one to say it to, and i doubt i even have the words to say it all.

this could be one of those nights when i go to sleep and wake up feeling very different--where my internal self-image makes a sudden jump closer to reality. i might feel weird waking up and not feeling any different.

it just started thundering. i would really love a good hard thunderstorm right now.
