they’re supposedly very intelligent.

How do I explain this feeling? Starting over, but differently. I am not running away... I am running towards. But I envisioned running towards, getting there, crossing some "you've done it!" finish line and a celebratory toast with new loves. Nope.

act your age or care.

[wull hallo.] I hope you're doing well. I'm doing pretty awesome. "Oh, why?" you ask... from across the room... wondering why I'm dancing like that.  [the happy burst that comes from deep within... spurred by the simplest thing.] "Because I got a plant in the mail today... A plant that lives in a dinosaur." HUGE… Continue reading act your age or care.

ah-mazing/slightly depressing things.

Well, as the title promises, I must show you these ah-mazing/slightly depressing [with a sprankle of morbidity] things.

the remnants of the good of the darkness.

The last two nights, I've had vivid dreams about moving back to Australia. My friend, Andrew, says... - Dreams are like pictures: If I'm not in them and no one's naked, I don't care. Well, some of my good friends were in the dreams, as well as the family I used to work for: The… Continue reading the remnants of the good of the darkness.
