mime movement

will someone please be these guys for october 31st!?


"if i remember correctly, disney land is in california, so i've never been there, but i have been to disney world in florida a couple times as a kid. my mom's parents lived in a condo in delray beach, so when we visited them, we made the trip to orlando to disney world. i've been told by my parents that they first took me when i was 4. we were visiting my grandparents after my sister was born, so the baby was left with them and i got to go meet mickey. they brought me into the haunted house and i freaked the fuck out in the first room, so they had to abruptly leave. i also went on the teacup ride and my dad got sick. my first trip that i can remember, i was around 9 or 10. i loved imagination land, and i got a little plastic figurine of "figment" that is probably in a box in my folks' basement with all the other stuff from my childhood through college life that i didn't schlep with me when i moved to austin. the last time i was there, i was older...i think around 14. that's when the place lost its magic and grossed me out. people were walking around eating these giant turkey legs that were being sold from carts throughout the park, their cameras dangling from their necks, and their fannypacks filled with dollars to be spent on junk. i didn't really like that visit all that much. i went on a "star wars" motion simulator ride and got sick. but i went on slash mountain and that was okay."

sacred now.

backyard sparkle circle is still thriving! living in space. i think the lamps i bought 5 years ago have had a huge effect on the person i am today. light is awesome! peeks and boos. autumn. tanmuu. muutan. also, the greek myth for the change of seasons is awesome: "In Greek mythology, the figure of Persephone is well-known today. Her story has great emotional power: an innocent maiden, a mother's grief at the abduction, and joy at the return of her daughter. It is also cited frequently as a paradigm of myths that explain natural processes, with the descent and return of the goddess bringing about the change of seasons. She was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, Goddess of grain and fertility, the pure nourisher of the youth and the green earth, the health-giving cycle of life and death, and preserver of marriage and the sacred law. When Persephone was abducted by Hades, lord of the underworld, Demeter wandered the earth in search of her lost child. During this time the earth brought forth no grain. Finally Zeus sent Hermes to the underworld, ordering Hades to restore Persephone to her mother. However, before she left, Hades gave her a pomegranate (a common fertility symbol). When she ate from it, she was bound to spend a third of the year with her husband in the infernal regions. Only when her daughter is with her, Demeter lets things grow (summer). The dying and blossoming of nature was thus connected with Demeter."

"To gain the respect and love of those who count, you may find it necessary to take life more seriously. Flitting from one flower to another may be all right for the honeybees but most human beings have to exert more stick-to-it-iveness to earn their daily bread. Dreaming can be pleasant but does not accomplish anything. Don't whine about hard knocks. They should serve as a challenge and you can rise to meet it. Take stock of your talents and skills and put the best to work.Even a little effort will not go unnoticed and greater effort may be rewarded quite handsomely. There are no limits to what you can achieve when you become determined to succeed. This applies to several phases of life, your work or business, money matters and romantic interests. Longterm investments or credit buying are not recommended for the present. Seek new friends in group functions."

in response.

dear anastasia,
thank you for the house warming presents! i especially like the breakfast bunny. once i had a house warming party and someone brought me a sweater. today i remembered all these things from my childhood like, how my first word was "eat" and my favorite sound was the microwave.

my new room is small and my bed is big. i don't need an area rug but, thank you for thinking about that important detail.

i figured out the density of the moon. then got stumped while trying to configure the distance between earth and mars. considering their ever changing placement, perihelion and aphelion, in accordance to the sun.

i heard you were on the harvest moon ride. so was i. here's proof:

oh, and BINGO!

i also read about this man named Emanuel Haldeman-Julius who was an influential socialist, author, and publisher of the "Little Blue Book" series. the books were scandalous for their time because they talked about everything from how to be a better lover to how to analyze your neighbors. which, by the way, i've been doing a lot of. the man next door is a bit of a treat, definitely through my over sized windows.

let's sit on a rooftop. be friends up high.


here is a lovely photo: of the best gals.

Housewarming gifts for your digital home.

A personal disco.

A breakfast bunny.

Some old 20th C. modern teak shit.

Some cute plants.

Dear Jessica,

How is your new house? How are our friends with whom you've shacked up? What's your room feeling like? Do you need an area rug?

I'm writing a personal timeline at a coffeeshop not so near to you, watching strange, preppy couples make their way through their philosophy homework, and skinny men with skinny jeans and glasses tap away on skinny Macs. Tap, tap, tap.

I have been calling up students' parents. I have been sleeping. I have been blowing off my Tuesday night class, because it seemed like too much to be so tired and then drive all that way to talk about special ed. students. I have been missing you.

So, tell me all about it. My heart flies to you. School? What is your fun? Where have you been? Will you save a slice of Saturday night for a date with an old lady?

Fingers crossed for success across the board.
