In my first few moments of conciousness,
after an amazingly unexpected 11 hours of sleep...
when I'm just beginning to realize that I'm still on the planet...
I'm aware in those first few moments,
of that momentary blissful peaceful feeling...
that at this precise moment... nothing hurts!
I know this isn't reality... but, as is human nature
I have a brief, but sincere longing...
for the days, when all my original equipment
was still in fine working order.
But in order for that to have any lasting appeal for me...
I'd want all that... WITH the knowledge, wisdom,
and contentment for life that I have now...
And my now concious mind knows that the two
just don't go hand in hand...
But, then I remember that the best cars are old cars,
the best wine, old wine...
and the best ordinary household things are
considered as prized antiques!
So now I sit at my computer..
rather than an old fashioned typewriter!
and honestly tell you...
that even though some type of pain
seems to be my constant comp
the Magic of FabricsThe Magic of Fabricsthe Magic of Fabrics3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
In witchcraft, everything has its own magic. There are entire books on, amongst others, the properties of trees, gemstones and colours. These properties help us guide our magic in the right direction. They help us focus on our goal and add their magic to our own, strengthening it.
A lot of witches craft their own talismans, pouches and tools. Using fabrics for their crafts, aligning them with the colour they need to work their spells. But what about the fabrics themselves? The way they were made, the materials they were made from, their history and myth. Why limit yourself to only the colour when working with fabrics?
This essay is made up out of three pieces. First the correspondences, an easy and fast way to see what the different fabrics mean and what their magical properties are. The correspondences were composited from history, myth, folklore, dream symbols and my own thoughts about the fabrics.
Secondly the trivia, fun facts about the different

One thing to know before reading. I hate Twilight, and this is to purely make fun of it. I didn't even try to make it sound professional, so don't really comment about the way I wrote it, just the actual story. Thanks!
Once upon a time there was a depressed guy named Roger. He had some serious mental problems, but that was probably because he was a vampire. He was too afraid to wear anything but black pants, black shoes, black shirts, and black jackets. And to top it all off he never took of his aviator sunglasses. He needed to hide his skin that had rainbows that reflected from the sunlight, because all scary monsters had rainbow auras that followed them in the sunlight.
Roger had a worst enemy too. His enemy was one of the many sons of Bigfoot, whose name was David. David was really hairy, but had a ton of muscles. He had huge chest hair, long leg hair, long arm hair, and his hair on top of his head went down to his knees. David and Roger hated each other, because their Roger, being
AnimalsOne Of These Days, on a day in Summer '68 when the Fat Old Sun was visible in the Great Gig In The Sky, in a place called San Tropez, there were some Pigs On The Wing. They were On The Run from Arnold Layne, a Fearless member of the Mudmen. Arnold had told them there was an Eclipse coming, and all the Dogs of the Crumbling Land would receive Brain Damage from it. This would cause them to Keep Talking, and as Time would wear on, their chatter would turn into a Violent Sequence, which would prevent the Pigs' future Embryo from Learning To Fly like their race did. What's more, their power for Coming Back To Life would be lost, too.Animals3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Syd's BirthdaySyd Barrett was sitting on his bed and painting in his Earls Court home, creating a new abstract picture, minding his own business and enjoying the sounds of tiny chirping birds (for the first time in quite a while) during a strangely warm January when he heard a knock on the front door and the brief shout of a man. He looked up and tilted his head, peering out from behind his dark, curly hair and wondering what it could have been.Syd's Birthday3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He put his brush and paints down on the mattress next to his bare thighs, and stood up to find out who had just been at his door. He wiped his fingers on his dark green shirt, the only article of clothing he was wearing, on his way to the door and slowly but carefully opened it and looked down.
At his feet was a box. There were several envelopes on top of it, which was how the mail was usually delivered - on the doorstep, just outside the door. But Syd had never gotten a package before. He stared at it for a minute or two, debating whether

"And thank you all very much, good night!"
David called into the microphone, fueling more screams from the audience as the Pink Floyd exited the orchestra pit. Roger put down his bass and stood up to join his friends, leaning the instrument against the wall near the amplifier.
"Pretty hyped up for an intermission, eh?" Rick said as the foursome grouped together. Nick looked out from behind the thick velvet curtain at the audience.
"Well I mean, it's us, what'd you expect?" David said, bringing chuckles from the rest. And Roger chimed in with his opinions, carrying on conversation with his friends.
Meanwhile, while the band had their back turned to the crowd behind them, a child was leaning over the railing, looking into the pit and staring with awe at the equipment. Though she was young and non-professional, she understood what most of it meant, in terms of technicalities, being a beginning bass player herself. She looked around for prying eyes, then quietly slipped off to find the ent

The strumming of Katros's guitar graced the ears of the Leijon household as the sun took its sweet time rising into the morning sky. None could hear his lyrics though, as he was sitting safely atop the roof of the hive. Needless to say, he hadn't slept well the night before. For today was the day the family would be leaving, and who knew when, or if, they would return.

The Tribe - Part 5'Mm So warm ' Karkat noted to himself as he started to wake up. He stretched underneath the blankets before curling back up in order to preserve the heat. Peeking his eyes open, he yawned and took a quick glance at the dark room around him. 'Where ? Oh, that's right, I'm on Aldaria now. My home Ugh, how long have I been out?' The young Cancer attempted to sit up, but a strong shiver ran down his spine and he immediately returned to the welcoming warmth. 'Too cold ' It was then that he heard voices coming from the bright outline of a doorway.The Tribe - Part 53 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"He really is a good boy." He recognized the voice as Lorena's. "He just needs some of the basics: sleep, food, exercise and lots and lots of love. And I'm sure as you can see, he's handling sleep extraordinarily well." Karkat noticed the door open slightly, and a figure peeked in. He closed his eyes so that the person looking in didn't notice he was awake. A light chuckle was heard.

Inside the WallInside the Wall3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Only one thing crossed my mind as I forced myself out of bed, that hot sticky July morning.
I was seeing Roger Waters today.
The day passed excruciatingly slow, and I found myself doing simple tasks to keep my mind occupied, but none of them worked. I tried practicing the guitar, but I couldn't keep focused. I could only do things related to the very concert I was about to see. I listened to the album while my sister straightened and teased my hair to unholy levels, and applied colors of makeup I never dreamed would exist on my face.
I could hardly eat at dinner, and I nearly choked on water from sheer excitement. How would I act once I actually arrived at the venue? The time came when I hopped on the trolley which would eventually take my brother and I right in front of the building where The Wall was being held. I looked around, scanning the area to see if we were the only Roger fans. We weren't. A teenage boy and his mother and father sat together, all wearing matching t-
The Tribe - Part 8As the tour progressed over the hours of the day, Karkat just couldn't believe what he saw. So many other trolls of all ages, all with the same blood color as him. And all being so lively and open too. There were markets and events all over the place; adults were relaxing while children ran around playing with one another. There was even the occasional fight, but it was all just for sport. Comparing it back to Alternia, Karkat began to wonder just why the hell he didn't know about this place sooner.The Tribe - Part 82 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
When lunch had come around, Karaba and his other sisters dragged him to Ginoli's all-you-can-eat buffet, and boy did Karkat make his mark. The food on Aldaria was much better than what he ate on Alternia, and Karkat amazed everyone with how much he could eat. And he made sure not to choke this time.
After lunch, Karkat took a good hour's nap in a public park, under a large tree that gave this strange blue fruit. The grass was warm thanks to the sun's rays, and Karkat wondered if Kanaya had
Nepeta's Legion - Part 4Once Nepeta was out of sight, Gamzee yawned and got another bottle of Faygo from the kitchen.

Opening the bottle of Faygo, he took a swig and nodded.Nepeta's Legion - Part 43 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"You should probably be a lot more careful next time, alright bro?" he asked, knowing Karkat could probably hear him. "Or else you'll never be accepted as their father." With that, Gamzee headed off to his own room, leaving Karkat to think about all that's happened.
When we arrived back at the house, things were quiet. We ate dinner, and then I sent the kids to bed. We had enough excitement for one day. After kissing Riculu goodnight, he whimpered before I had a chance to leave the room. Walking back to his little crib, I lightly pet his cheek so he knew I was there.
"Something wrong, sweetie?" I asked him. He snuggled up to my hand and yawned. I smiled. He was such a sweetheart.
I waited until Riculu fell asleep b

It was 2:00 am.
But it was hot out.
The doors were open.
Roger, Rick, Dave, Syd and Nick sat around the living room.
And they were all shit-faced drunk.
"And then, right in the middle of the ring was this wad of gum that my marble was stuck to!!" Nick was flopped over the arm of the sofa, telling stories about his childhood.
None of them made much sense.
"You fucking sucked at marbles, anyways, Nick," Dave crowed, finding this extremely amusing. He was sprawled over the couch, too, with his head on Nick's stomach and his legs over Rick's lap. Rick had Dave's pant-leg up and was pulling at his socks.
"Dave, you suck at everything," Roger spat, taking another swig of beer and another drag on his smoke. He was sitting on the couch across from Dave, Rick and Nick. Syd was lying upside-down over the side of the couch next to him singing something. Every once in a while, he decided to grab Roger's toes, which would usually earn him a swift but ineffective kick in his direction.

Mello was silent for a moment. His jaw dropped. "Really?" He slumped. "No one told me...Why is he here anyway?"

He got the call. But he wished he hadn't. The voice coming through on the other end shook his heart with a disturbed energy. It wasn't the tone, or the owner of the voice, but what the voice said. The message he was relayed he had been prepared for, yet at the same exact time nothing could have readied him for the news that reached his heart and stabbed his soul.
He dropped the phone in a stunned silence. The receiver fell from his hand and slid down his front to the floor, as if in slow motion to him. He couldn't see or feel or hear it moving, and the shatter of plastic seemed only distant to his mind.
