first firefly seen. summer officially arrived. thousands of little lights going off wild in trees flashing 'look at me! you know i'm a great mate by how bright i shine! look!' and they do and their little lights sneak away to the dark together.

i miss geckos though and their tails slipping behind crooks and crannies and their teeny little chirps to each other...

There's a gecko tribe of at least a dozen individuals living in the walls and the roofs of the building i live in... (they belong to a rather small species: max 10 cm long; people here call them "tarentes")... now that it's summer, at night my working place's lights attract mosquitoes and there's usually one gecko that comes hunting them... while it roams (on the outside) the large window beneath my drawing table it shows me its white scaly belly and the soles of its strange-looking feet...

finally i have my own place again! couch surfing is fun and conducive to adventure having but you do get tired of awnry cats jumping on you in the middle of the night real fast. now i can sit in my tall tall loft bed and watch the river go by, all sneaky behind those elms there, and watch the graffiti kids run around trying...

my current imaginary crush consists of an ammalgamation of features: the raspy, disembodied and sexy as hell voice of one girl, the left hand of a certain right handed girl, and the blind eye of a third (it's permamently dilated, black mysterious and hypnotic). last night i had to drive 3 hours to pick up stranded friends and driving late at night through the...

i want to pick up hitchhikers in a hearse.

ever have the dreams where your imaginary crush morphs into hundreds of people, big or small, handsome or repulsive, strangers, friends, relatives, even you all while doing the deed(s) in bed?

i think my foot is my best feature for, other than being bemusingly big, it is rather well formed if i do say. and my big toe is huge. like the incredible hulk of toes. it gives me superb balance and general foot strength. the left one is the best. b/c left is the best.

tonight was the special holiday of celebration in which...

incredibly stupid and silly injury # 7 has occured. trying to walk on one of those big wooden spindles they wrap cables on. trying to be a little acrobatic circus monkey but landed on me wrists instead. rather hurts. i can't believe i went rollerskating again and didn't fall down at all (except in solidarity)(or when i 'funotaged' someone i.e. falling down...

....poor little acrobatic cirucs monkey....

blixasinister:

the great thing about funotage is the other person can't be entirely mad at you since you're hurt as well having sacrificed yourself for Fallah, a funorist act, although this they do not know. So for being a klutz, yes, they can be upset, but not the kind where they should have any reason to stop talking to you, unless they've been dying to find an excuse to lose you, in which case, no loss really. Funotage.

i love stairways that go nowhere and doorways that open out to nothing but a 50 foot drop and roads still being built and empty...and rivers flooding just a little bit. turgid. that's the word. i'm making the little river park by my room my office this summer. i'll be in my pink lawn chair presently.
and and also fecundity. springtime...

the lack of hot water was more to keep you on your secret sobriety mission. though i have it on excellent authority that hot water is the best way to soothe poison ivy.

i am often not sure if what happend an hour ago really did, whther it was actually last month, last year, or last dream. taking a nap adds a whole "new day" feel.

blixasinister:

I love those too, the neighborhood block that no longer exists but you can still walk up the stairs that once led to their front doors. abandoned bridges are also fun to cross, test out their sturdiness and look down through massive cracks in some of them.

The one good thing about the humid south is when everyone else stinks, it's okay, cause you stink too. It's true. Any other place and I might be weary of having to peel my clothes off everyday. Summer stink, it's great.

thats one hawtt bruse

eris23:

i have never seen anything like that, certainly not attached to a human body.

fashion is taking a terrible turn these days. like c'mon, black satin drawstring hem hip hugger capri cargo pants? WTF?? i saw some astonishing trousers in a shop window in paris: bluejeans but the front of the legs formed a union jack in dyed rabbit fur. no, really, and they were 300 euros. bad clothes and bad driving are the two things that most challenge my love of humans.

you better get the hot water shut off in your house.

the high price of having lots of fun and glowing i'm so happy is that my body is being destroyed. i'll tell you one thing, i got a lotta heart. and i have the bruises to prove it. i gave it my all at roller skating last night and i have bruise the size of a grapefruit, no, a pummelo let's say...
