my mum got me these at the asian super store. they are shiny. i love them.
it feels like it has been a rough couple of weeks. but never fear, the darkness always lifts!
or, as is the case for today’s lovely, the darkness falls! my camera is back, and i am so happy.
my mum gave me chestnuts the other day that were sprouting roots. they were so sweet, reaching out of their shells for moisture and sustenance. i was supposed to plant them, but i had no soil. i spent every day since then with a nagging feeling that i was destroying something beautiful through negligence. today i finally got the earth in which to plant the seeds, but of course the little exploratory roots had all dried up.
i took the chestnuts, and some acorns i collected and put them on a bed of paper towels inside the lid of an egg carton, and covered them with a second layer. i’ve soaked the paper in water, and left them under the kitchen sink. i am not giving up on the little, half destroyed chestnuts yet. i will let you know how it goes.
the seekers are getting closer. they don’t know it, of course, but they are getting warmer.
hello internet, did you miss me? I certainly missed you.
but i have some positive things to show for my absence. it’s not all hospital bracelets and chewed up plants, there’s plenty of good. as for example, a scene from james’s upcoming animated student film, which i helped with by colouring it. i know the grammar there is probably way wrong, but it’s been a long day. it’s good to be home.
i suddenly find myself overcome with emotion at trying to describe one of the nicest things anyone has told me in a very long time. possibly ever.
i have been away, so maybe i should just stay away and not post this, because it is by no means complete. but i had such lovely today. i want to share it, i just don’t have the words.
I watched the trailer for repomen this morning. in it is featured jude law, who, if he were a readily available street drug, would have me broke and possibly incarcerated within a matter of hours. i would sell my family and friends for a dose of mister law.
i went to the movies and saw the crazies on saturday, with mauler. everything was going fine until “they” decided the main character should pick up a zippo in a store, and it would already have lighter fluid in it.
dear movie directors/producers/writers,
you LOSE when you treat your audience like they are stupid. we all do.
