Dangerous at night

Posted 05-28-2010 at 02:10 AM by sweetiepie

She said, "I could kill you in your sleep for what you just said."

I turned off the light, and tried to get to sleep. It had been the worst day of my life, and I was quite done with it. It had started with the smallest perceivable irregularities. Like when I went to make an omelet, the color of the refrigerator seemed fascist, except it didnít just seem, it really was, or it really is fascist. It's that off-white you see in every Mao poster. Or Portiaís hair, for example,...

The last really clever idea I had

A few years ago, H and I went out to drink with the Canadians across the street. They talked about starting a restaurant. H and I didn't have any cool plans like that, but we were eager to live our lives too. Then we went home and went to bed, and I couldn't sleep. This thought, in its entirety, popped right into my head:

It was shocking. Not the idea itself, which is just a silly thing really, but how the whole damn...

Data pollution

All this electronic media flushes my brain. I'm ADD and I feel poisoned all the time. That's why I have to write. It's so loud in my head, I have to shout thoughts against the vomitous chaos, and there can be no peace. It is a war between sound and noise. Life left silence for death.

I just watched the princess bride again and what stood out this time was the true-love-story where the lady tells the farm boy what to do and the farm boy says "as you wish". You don't...

Everyone Should Do What I Want Them To Do

Posted 02-17-2010 at 09:06 AM by Hugh Jass

I'd be so much happier if people would be how I want them to be. No more idiots clogging up traffic or otherwise getting in my way. I've noticed a lot of stress in my life is caused by other people. If everyone would just listen to me and do what I tell them, we'd all be alot happier. Also, that girl from High school should totally have chosen me not that other guy. He made her so unhappy. I knew that if she chose me we could have been happy. Now, because of her not listening to me, she's ruined...

Blog is such an ugly word

Posted 02-03-2010 at 03:32 PM by Hugh Jass

Couldn't they have come up with a better word? Blog sounds like "blah" and "log". Blah=nothing important to say, log=feces. So it's really a pretty bad word. I recommend calling these knolbits. knol=knowledge, bits=tidbits. Tidbits of knowledge.
