I wanna kill dust mites, is that so wrong?

I really need to hustle and buy my allergy sheets. I still don't seem to be that much better, especially when I wake up.

Would love to go tomorrow but I've got a speaking engagement at 2:30, right plop in the middle of when I'd go. Not that I don't want to speak and all, but it ruins things b/c I can't really go on the way back either because I'll be carrying around some books I think (and in my world, since I am not driving, you must consider what all you're carrying). Then I think about other times to go and it looks like I won't be able to b/c of having to work on a project of for Caleb's company and also finishing up Inception. Also Sunday afterrnoon (at 2:30) I might be going to a play. Maybe Monday evening. *Sigh*

Friday Five: Minority Report

1. What food do you like that most people hate?

I have to choose one?! OK, if I must... Black salted licorice. The best kind I've found is "Salty Fish" (or "Saltize Herringe"), which are very strong dark licorice fish (but not fish-flavored) covered in salt. I also like a lot of other kinds of licorce, anything from Nibs to black licorice buttons to "bridge mix."

As for other foods, in general I tend to like foods that have a very strong (often "bad") flavor, I think in part because ever since I was little, my allergies and a lot of tongue burns (don't ask) have really taken away a lot of my ability to taste. I like things that are extremely salty (Marmite) or sour (lemons).

2. What food do you hate that most people love?

Watermelon. It is just SO gross! And it tastes like murkily sweet water.

3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you?

Hmmm, for some reason I can't think of anyone specific, but I do know there are a lot of models, pop singers and actors (male and female) that I find totally gross.

4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find

Marilyn Manson maybe, I dunno... I mean, I know there are a lot, I am blanking out.

5. What popular trend baffles you?

People living in or moving to the suburbs.

P.S. My brain is so fried.

I'm all over!

Last year this time I did not have any listings on Amazon, needless to say. But, well, things have changed! Right now I am listed on Amazon UK for SIX books -- Breeding Discontent and then five others (which I was editor on)! Lookie here!. I really ought to tell my mom :) And meantime, I want to add a couple more to that listing next year!

GOD do I love this song...

Actually there are quite a FEW Cruxshadows songs which tend to make my hyponotically passionate but... OK, here are some lyrics. It is naturally far superior to hear it but barring that, sharing love angst lyrics...

Marylyn, My Bitterness

I don't understand
how you've done these things to me.
I can not comprehend
your lack of loyalty.

For you I would have shaken down
the heavens from the sky,
but it seems my love was stronger than
this love of yours that died.

Did you think it wouldn't hurt?
Did you think I wouldn't feel
when the world came falling down?
Or maybe you didn't think at all --
and that's why I feel what I feel now!

Did you think I wouldn't bawl,
Did you think I wouldn't cry,
Did you think I wouldn't beg you to stay?
One of these days you're gonna realize
just what you've thrown away...

Now I lie here in this empty bed
and all I think about is you
and I wonder if you miss me now
and if your bed is empty too...

...Marilyn my bitterness
i've fallen to a stranger nightmare
Marilyn oh Marilyn
I can not break away

Marilyn oh Marilyn
I've fallen to stranger nightmare
Marilyn oh Marilyn
I can not find my way

I'll absorb this agony.
I'll carry all this pain.
I'll wipe away this emptiness.
I will purify this stain.
My wings will fold around me now.
for once a one was two.
and my memory is a monument,
that will always stand for you...

I highly, highly recommend their album Echoes & Artifacts, which has stuff from other CDs & EPs. This album also features a cover of "Here Comes the Rain Again" that IMHO, is just as good as the original, plus it's sung by a boy, so HEY cool!

(no subject)

I agree with other comments I've seen today -- headlines like this are just stupid:

Prince Charles Denies a Rumor, but Won't Say What It's About

Oh, and denying a rumor without saying what it is... what's up with that?
