The Masquerade [Entry Four, August 2013]I’m sitting at a table in the college Dining Commons. We call it Saga, and I don’t know why and don’t care. I don’t care about a lot of things. I don’t care about orientation and the meet-and-greets and the meetings and the paperwork. I want it over. I want it done.The Masquerade [Entry Four, August 2013]22 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I’m sitting at a table eating cereal. I’m tired, jetlagged still, and I’m alone, which suits me. My neck still hurts from a long fight with a completely inaccessible welcoming speech. I might be good at it, but no one can lip-read past a microphone.
I can hear voices behind me, muffled, but I don’t understand them.
A person passes by me, their mouth temporarily in my line of sight. They sit down, facing me from another table. I can’t help but read their lips. “God, she’s so rude!
I eat another bite of cereal. Chew and swallow.
“Fine, don’t move!” Chew and swallow. “Rude!” They’re staring at me. I stop and stare
The top 10 strangest people I've ever metOkay, so they say that with karma, you get good if you give good and you get bad if you give bad, but if you get what you give, then I should get "weird" because I give "weird", right?The top 10 strangest people I've ever met20 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Well, I think that may just be exactly right because I've met people who are so strange that you won't even believe I'm not lying, but I swear these are true.
Alright, this list was pretty hard to come up with and there were a LOT of runner-ups, but please enjoy:
Number 10, The Deer Man.
So me and my mom were out driving near the woods at night when not that many people were around when all of a sudden, I notice someone crawling in front of our car. My mom stopped the car and looked, only to see a strange man wearing fake antlers, walking on all fours in front of our car. She didn't stay to find out what was going on and quickly turned around to go the other way, but the scariest thing that still haunts me to this day is how he froze in our headlights...just like an actual deer. I like to hope it was jus
One of my dreams about Nine Inch NailsA quite few years ago when I was more into NIN I had been having dreams about Trent.One of my dreams about Nine Inch Nails1 day ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
So I once I was at this venue and it looked like a really confusing maze of stairs and wooden platforms and I was anxiously trying to get to the show, losing my way among other groups of pople walking here ant there.
And suddenly Trent showed up somewhere in my field of view... and I walked some more and managed to bump into him and the band. And then we started talking. I asked him if I could do him a feet massage and he said "yes".
That is all I recall.
I'd Rather Be An AnarchistStrange questions part one:I'd Rather Be An Anarchist1 day ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Why don't you have a partner ?
It's like asking why don't you know a special person ?
I don't know why I don't know a special person
The special person sales ran out ?
It's not like you first think you want a partner
And then you shop for one
It's more like you meet someone you like first
And maybe that person will become your partner
So... not meeting someone you like means no partner - question answered.
Strange questions part two:
Why don't you perform live ?
It's like asking me to get on a stage whether I have material for it or not
Again the wrong sequence
If I have material I want to know the world about
No worries, I find my way to a stage
But if a stage means waving my hair while miming oldies no
I think a stage is for a well-developed act that will last for longer than 10 minutes
I think a stage is for people who don't mind showing off a bit
If me on a stage means you can look at me without having to know me
Without caring about what I want to say
