back to australia from japan.

moved into new house. it is a very large house. there is not much furniture, but i am keen to leave it that way, because i am really enjoying all the space.

i could swing several cats.

& speaking of cats, picked up my siamese cats from the family looking after them for me. they are happy, relaxed, sleeping softies. torsten...

I get so confused with your travels! The house sounds nice though. The more space the better I feel, even if it does mean more area to clean.

love the pics. nice to see your violent streak come out, albeit against an invisible opponent. i have no doubt that you won.

i hope you have enjoyed spain. i have friends there so i may go over in the summer. did you do much whilst you were there? or was it merely to relax? i think i would go for a mixture. perhaps spend the first 2 days relaxing, then maybe 2-3 days sightseeing, trying to understand the cultural differences, and then back to relaxing before i head home smile xx

question posed (not by I) :
Is it possible to forgive and forget a serious betrayal by a loved one? Can you ever move completely beyond or does the incident remain buried just beneath the surface?

My answer?

let me explain.

it is past 1am. we make tea, and take it on the rug in our bedroom. we wear oversized white bathrobes. they're good quality...

i love to read what you write. your style is compelling, and i often find myself going back to it again and re-reading it, hoping to take in a little bit more of your feelings each time, if that makes sense.

glad you enjoyed the movie too smile

tetrisbrokeme:

thank you for your birthday wishes! i have no personal traditions as such. in fact, i worked. i kinda have to though as it's my own company. it wasn't too bad. i pretty much just chilled all day until i got home to find presents from my girlfriend smile thoughtful presents too, which i appreciate far more.

i do like fillet steak myself, but just before christmas i had some vouchers to spend at river cottage, which is a farm owned by a chef. i used my vouchers to obtain masses of beef so i've dined on fillet steak, sirloin steak, ribeye steak, fine lean mince, coarse mince, and stewing steak for quite some time. i enjoy cooking immensely so i'd made lots of dishes with each.

my diet is coming along ok. i didn't cheat yesterday, although fajitas aren't exactly low in calorie content, but i'm still eating way below the recommended adult average. i think next week i'll drop it even lower, just for a week, to see what results i can gain.

my breakfast this morning consisted of a glass of water with an apple & bran muffin (84 calories) that i baked. mid morning i have a black coffee (5 calories), and lunch time i shall possibly have a tiger roll with 2 slices of chicken (220 calories). for the afternoon i will have another black coffee and perhaps another apple & bran muffin, alternatively a banana although that has a higher calorie content (105 calories). i'm unsure as to dinner tonight, but perhaps fish with steamed broccoli for which i may treat myself and make a thai style dressing tongue

so when do you exit sweden, and where are you going? my offer still stands for anime watching tongue x

I lived in Detroit for a stretch of time. As I'm sure you can imagine It's an easy city to find trouble in. Boredom and accessibility lead me to develop one hell of a cocaine habit. I have no advice to offer on whatever it is you're dealing with, but I do have vivid memories of not being able to trust my own mind. It's been years, and to a certain extent I still have a hard time telling the difference between which thoughts are mine and which thoughts are just the result of some old self inflicted wound.

So, I moved to the country.

We have hedgerows (at least thats what we call them) in Michigan although they are not quite as dense as the ones I remember from my time in Europe. They are really just rows of brush, trees, and shrubs that mark out the borders between fields. There are a ton of old farms in the western part of the state that are plotted out that way. The department of natural resources actually encourages farmers to plant and maintain hedgerows because they are a dwindling habitat for game birds i.e. pheasant. Larger commercial farms buy the old ones, clear cut, burn, plant corn or soybeans, and thats that. Or land developers build a subdivision. What I watched the other night was quite literally change taking place. Definitely sad, but something to witness either way.

Pheasants, I'm told, used to be all over the place here. Now they are pretty much just raised on game reserves.

I think aphorisms are a little more graceful in fortune cookie format, otherwise simple truths are so easily discarded. The cookie makes you smile and accept. Everybody likes cookies. I guess I'm just a simple man.

I think the angle in your picture works just fine, but I like the one of you outside better. I love the way people look when they are all bundled up. You're right about your hair.

What were you doing in Japan aside from bird watching?

Some mornings in the summer there is a red tailed hawk that sits on the roof outside my bedroom window.

My friend Brett just seems to have his shit together I think. He pursues the things he wants with a fuck all attitude, but manages to make other people happy in the process. He is a loyal friend, and people love to be around him. He spits in the face of any and all social awkwardness. People come to his parties. He has a beautiful girlfriend, and is the only person I know that seems truly happy in a long term relationship. I'm proud of my friend, but envious at the same time. I could not live the life he leads. It's just not me, and that's cool too.

This is long, I know. Hopefully, it serves as a distraction at the very least. I'm enjoying having you as a pen pal.

PS: NPR is National Public Radio. It's really the only trustworthy news source in the US. I don't own a television, so radio is my main source of entertainment. You should google a couple shows and see if you can download them. One is called This American Life, and the other is called Radio Lab. They're both very interesting.

you really should read dawn. your enjoyment of being naked in the snow is reason enough (there are relatable scenes). it's by this guy phil elverum. he is the brains behind the bands mount eerie and the microphones. dawn is a journal he kept while spending the winter in a cabin near bodo norway. the book reminds me of thoreau in a modern hipster kind of way. plus there is a whole record that goes along with it, so it's an all inclusive artistic experience. the music is very mellow, acoustic, emotional, and lyrically amazing. so yeah, i give it rave reviews.

the book has made me feel the need to keep a journal of my weekly thoughts and endeavors no matter how bland or trivial. hence the blog, that i will try to do every sunday.

i really appreciate you taking the time to read, and what you have to say. it's pretty cool to find commonalities with other people on things as necessary as grocery shopping.

lately i've been thinking how crazy it is that fortune cookies often give me the most sound advice. maybe there is something in that.

Can't sleep. This time I AM greeting the dawn.

All my weapons are - a big glass of orange juice and Zeus.

Intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness
tetrisbrokeme:

mmm orange juice tongue

ok, my favourite anime is Kimagure Orange Road, and i own the entire series. I'm also a huge fan of 3x3 Eyes. Fruits Basket is cool, Love Hina, FLCL...... I'm really pretty open with anime. What about yourself???
