several light years late

but at least she's here now. i'm talking about nisse's crisp new blog. those who know and love her need no introduction nor proding. those who don't, surf to the right and follow the link. she's armed with a light sabre, she lives with a mean pop culture collection, the theatre of her cinematic mind has plush seats.

info saves lifes!

i don't mean to scare anyone or depress them but i just came across some info about inflamatory breast cancer, which i've never heard about before. please read about it in the link. apparently both men and women can get it.

mr. sandman, you shyte

for those of you who've heard of my bed mistress, insomnia, this is hardly surprising but here is a mini essay i found on one of my favourite blogs, varieties of unreligious experience
it describes the experience in a sophisticated way ( i never could). there's also a quote from e.e. cummings, which i think carrie might enjoy.

oh, and don't get me wrong, i'm not at all gloomy about it. just resigned. the only thing that really worries me? the throngs of clever young kids with perfect sleeping patterns i have to compete with for a place in academia;-) mind you, they might be talented, but i'm bloody determined. so there you have it.

hope you're having a really enjoyable and calm long weekend.

more about vday

long day, but fun. work went swiftly, filled with pink and white icing, coffee, and, well, work.
then on to the galaxy in the afternoon to see "pan's labyrinth". extraordinary film. brutal (and i'm not necessarily talking about torture scenes) and gripping, beautiful. i mean, REALLY beautiful. i cried myself into gross snottiness, the only person of course.
and my heart is still pounding.

new thinking cap

i blame the fever...this head cold doesn't seem to ever leave completely, lurks and then hits again every couple of weeks.

and then unplanned, crazy things appear at the end of my knitting needles...

happy bday dad!

today is my father's birthday. he does not carry a gun and does not own a guitar.
though apparently during his mandatory army service he got up to all kinds of mischief...
that was before he met my mother.
