“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ~Albert Einstein

“Compelling reason will never convince blinding emotion.” ~Richard Bach

“One sheds one's sicknesses in books--repeats and presents again one's emotions, to be master of them.” ~D H Lawrence

“Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know what it means to want to escape from these” ~Emily Dickinson

Word of the Day

eristic - pertaining to argument for its own sake.


May is Get Caught Reading Month.
My picks are The Last Oracle by James Rollins and Solipsist by Henry Rollins.
***Please send me your own picks so I can include them.***

May is also Borderline Personality Disorder Month.
what is borderline personality disorder?
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a serious and often life-threatening disorder that is characterized by severe emotional pain and difficulties managing emotions. The problems associated with BPD include impulsivity (including suicidality and self-harm), severe negative emotion such as anger and/or shame, chaotic relationships, an extreme fear of abandonment, and accompanying difficulties maintaining a stable and accepting sense of self. Thus, BPD is characterized by pervasive instability of mood, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and actions, often negatively affecting loved ones, family and work life, long-term planning, and the individual's sense of self-identity.

This week is National Hug Week. Feel free to give me a hug.

It is also Tuba Day & World Asthma Day.

Tomorrow! Is! No! Socks! Day!


Sometimes the word hypnagogia is used in a restricted sense to refer to the onset of sleep, and contrasted with hypnopompia, Frederic Myers's term for waking up.[3] However, hypnagogia is also regularly employed in a more general sense that covers both falling asleep and waking up, and Havelock Ellis questioned the need for separate terms.[4] Indeed, it is not always possible in practice to assign a particular episode of any given phenomenon to one or the other, given that the same kinds of experience occur in both, and that people may drift in and out of sleep. In this article hypnagogia will be used in the broader sense, unless otherwise stated or implied.

Other terms for hypnagogia, in one or both senses, that have been proposed include "presomnal" or "anthypnic sensations", "visions of half-sleep", "oneirogogic images" and "phantasmata",[5], "the borderland of sleep", "praedormitium",[6] the "borderland state", "half-dream state", "pre-dream condition",[7] "sleep onset dreams",[8] dreamlets,[9] and "wakefulness-sleep transition" state (WST).[10]


My Life is Average

Today I realized that I only have eleven green sheets of paper left until I finally get to the red pieces in my multi-coloured notebook. I am so excited! MLIA.
**Someone is OBVIOUSLY as easily amused as I am...**

Today, I used the last bit of ink from my pen that I purchased and used from start to finish without losing. It ran out while writing the word "gone". Way to go, you were a good pen. MLIA
**This is one of my goals in life. To use a whole pen. Without losing it. Without having it stolen. Yes. This person is obviously a poet.**

The other day, my english teacher handed back a homework packet. While I was flipping through the numerous pages, I saw that she had written "Cheese!" randomly on one of the pages. Mrs. Bean, I always knew you were my favorite teacher.

Yukon Not Believe This Juan
Border Checkpoint Canada

Me: “I need to see your Visa, ma’am.”
Tourist: “What for? It doesn’t cost to go to Canada, does it?”
Me: “Not your credit card ma’am, your Visa to enter the country.”
Tourist: “What do you mean?”
Me: “You need to have a Visa to leave the United States, ma’am.”
Tourist: “I’m not leaving the United States!”
Me: “Yes you are, ma’am, beyond here is Canada.”
Tourist: “Canada isn’t outside the United States!”
Me: “And what makes you think that, ma’am?”
Tourist: “Because there’s no water between the two places! Its one big hunk of land!”
Me: “Country borders do not have to be separated by water, ma’am. Both Canada and Mexico are different countries yet directly connected to the United States.”
Tourist: “Well of course Mexico is a different country, it’s separated from America by water!”
Me: “No it’s not, ma’am.”
Tourist: “Ain’t you ever heard of the Gulf of Mexico?”

All I have to say is that I hate Buffalo Wild Wings (1604 & 281). They are evil, their management is lacking, and it's a dirty place. If I wanted a bug in my drink I would have asked for one. Forget that. I would have gone to Mexico and done the whole worm in tequila thing. That would have been worth it. Not that place.

Yo, that was so fly.

Okay, so, because there was a problem with my directions last Friday, it's the IHOP coming back toward work between Bitter & Thousand Oaks. Something like that. It's there. I'm not lying. 11:15pm tonight. Yes. :) Hopefully, unlike last night, this will be an epic win, not an epic fail.

@ Mat Xavier. I know this is late. Sorry. My honey (actually) got a cell phone. It's going to snow. Here. I know. I had to break it in. :) So I was in the break room. Procrastinating with the dOrk fOrces. But hey. At least I get it out daily, ya?

Thank you, Audrey & Molly for the cake. Hahahabananahahaha

Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: "Shut up, all of you just shut UP!"

Whistle the first seven notes of "It's a Small World" incessantly.

Sell Girl Scout cookies.

On a long ride, sway side to side at the natural frequency of the elevator.


Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: "Got enough air in there?"

Offer name tags to everyone getting on the elevator. Wear yours upside-down.

Stand silent and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.

When arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.

Lean over to another passenger and whisper: "Noogie patrol coming!"

Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral.

One word: Flatulence!

On the highest floor, hold the door open and demand that it stay open until you hear the penny you dropped down the shaft go "plink" at the bottom.

Stare, grinning, at another passenger for a while, and then announce: "I've got new socks on!"

When at least 8 people have boarded, moan from the back: "Oh, not now, motion sickness!"

Give religious tracts to each passenger.

Meow occassionally.

Bet the other passengers you can fit a quarter in your nose.

Show other passengers a wound and ask if it looks infected.

Sing "Mary had a little lamb" while continually pushing buttons.

Holler "Chutes away!" whenever the elevator descends.

Walk on with a cooler that says "human head" on the side.

Stare at another passenger for a while, then announce "You're one of THEM!" and move to the far corner of the elevator.

Learn from My Fail

While speaking to (and flirting with) your gorgeous new boss, DO NOT, under any circumstances, pull the errant hair that’s been dangling in front of his eye for 10 minutes. His "hair" might come off and you will never be able to look at him again, forcing you to seek new employment. #LFMF

On your first day working at a resturant and someone orders a 20oz steak, be careful when delivering the food not to ask, "Allright, who’s got the big meat?" #LFMF

When your brother accidentally seriously injures you in a scuffle, don’t attempt to make him faint by opening your wound to show him the bones and tendons. You may both pass out, you for loss of blood, him for being a little girl. #LFMF

Thank you, thank you. I am here for all eternity.
