“The sound shivers through the walls, through the table, through the window frame, and into my finger. These distraction-oholics. These focus-ophobics. Old George Orwell got it backward. Big Brother isn't watching. He's singing and dancing. He's pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother's holding your attention every moment you're awake. He's making sure you're always distracted. He's making sure you're fully absorbed... and this being fed, it's worse than being watched. With the world always filling you, no one has to worry about what's in your mind. With everyone's imagination atrophied, no one will ever be a threat to the world.” Chuck Palahnuik

I just haven't had the words for here lately...kinda in a verbal doldrums right now.
So what has been happening in my life?
Scott and Lance fixed my car, so tomorrow I get my little green Saturn back.
Andrew and I are reading books at a rate of one a day.
I am experiencing some temptations with allergies this week.
I stumbled across a couple of people from my high school, which is always interesting.
Ben was in high vampire mode today.
I went to bed at 7pm. Now its 2:30am and I'm wide awake.
Erin cut my hair...ahhhh...fresh cut hair!
Mom and Dad invited Andrew and I up to the cabin for Memorial Day weekend.
Andrew has become a bully magnet of late...sigh.
I'm scrapbooking about once a week instead of daily now.
We had church at our house three times in five weeks.
I am rereading Hemingway and realizing that since my highschool days I've outgrown him. Ho hum.
Oprah bought me dinner.
Off to try to sleep some more!
