can you be too heavy?

the answer is yes yes yes yes. as i struggle to pack up my room, i have too much stuff, too much junk that i kept.

some literary dude said somewhere that moving is like fire. it really is. i've burnt so much stuff with everytime i've moved. i think i've moved about 15 times now, a bit more if you count college.

all i have to say at this point is burn burn burn.

was it always this funny?

weird things happen when you're bored.

i haven't been so unemployed, so uncomitted, so unstressed in a looong loong time. highschool cramming, college, working like a rat for five . 5 years. it's odd to find myself not caring what time it is, or what day it is.

it's a lot of fun.

anyway weird things happen when you have a lot of time on your hands. yesterday my wardrobe crashed down because i leaned on it. today when i decided i would right it, it literally fell apart. my drawers fell off the hinges too, now my room is covered with *stuff*.

weirder still. i go to a coffee shop (because i have more free time than any of you put together). and i start chatting to the owners. "oh what do you do? you a student? want to come work here?" etc etc. then it turns to "are you married? do you have a boyfriend" (because england is very couple based society). and i say "no but i'm seeing someone today" with a smirk. the answer "don't get involved with him, he's short, and rude, he won't even pay for your drinks".

huh? huh? wtf? really, the dude's short but he aint rude... and fun to chat to...

what happens? the kid stands me up, calls me later telling me that his phone broke. it's all a good laugh, certainly odd.

other things psychic lady told me:
1) you're going to the us, and you'll meet a tall women there who will give you a job that you like
2) the friend you are in a fight with, in three or four months he will get back to you, and it'll all be okay.
3) you'll meet a someone from your own country and you'll really like it.

pffffffffffffft. weird-o.

July 7th

I have a new pet project. Translating Japanese folk tales into cheeky English. Here's the first one.

Once upon a time, when stars were like people and had jobs and the like. There was a young cow herder named Otohiko and a weaver named Otohime. He was the very best cow herder around and she weaved the prettiest fabric in the sky. One day they met. Sparks! Fireworks! Stars! They fell in love. They couldn't get enough. They ran around the entire sky all day and all night. It was beautiful.

But not so good for the cows and all the ladies that wanted new clothes. Without Otohiko around the cows ran wild, and without Otohime around the new summer line had tears and holes and clashing colours. Hideous, I know.

So the king of the sky said this has gotta stop, and unleashed a torrential river between their houses. Some people call this river the Milky Way. With the gushing river between them they couldn't see each other at all anymore and they cried and cried, underneath it rained and rained. So much so that every June since then became the rainy season in Japan. The queen took pity on them (also got fed up with all the pouring rain) and said they could see each other once a year. The two cheered up a little, and counted the days until the one special day.

That day is July 7, also known as "Tanabata". hurray! Unfortunately, the barrier being a river and all, if it rains on July 7th the river floods and they can't see each other. Bugger.

There's a couple things you can do to help them along though.
Take a big branch of bamboo, decorate it with paper rings and sparkly stuff. Write wishes and what not on pretty paper and also hang it on the bamboo.

Stay up late, watch the moon, and eat lots of desserts.

Be really bummed if it rains.

so what?

i am thinking today, and the topic is so what?

why would you even care that you had a computer with internet access if you didn't have the dough to see a doctor or food and stuff like that.

you probably wouldn't.

my friend says that it is a so what sort of question but access to information is an important issue for doctors and health professionals in developing countries.

and i guess the winnning story here is that with the interweb you can get a lot of information for next to no money. always seems to come back to money huh.

would you be a little more hopeful about what else if you could find out the "what else" bit at a computer? would you be a little more happier if your teacher knew a little bit more?


i'm still not completely sold though.

the computers and stuff, they're not the magic bullet. it's a slow subtle kind of thing, i imagine. it won't make anyone immediately happy. i think actually, because computers are evil they will make a lot of people unhappy in the short run.

radio and tv are a lot cheaper and more accesible. probably fax as well. but if you wanted to send a text book say, or all the data you had on a weather forecast it'd take a long time, and lots of money.

at the end of the day it's only infrastructure.

but infrastructure is a good thing.
