|08:25 am - "Got a roof over my head, someone to love me in a four poster bed. . ."|
Ooh, as if you didn't hear enough about it, huh?
You know it struck me today:
If we are reflected in the company we keep, I'm a damn lucky man. I have some of the greatest friends in the world, real, online, and imagined.
Nothing really brought that on; I just kind of started thinking about it.
My friends only make me look better. And it's nice to be good-looking.
I did find an adventure story that I had neglected to mention, and I've been devouring it with the same fervor I devoured Peter Pan: I'm reading The Little Prince.
I honestly think that this should be required before you can graduate college. If you read it too early, it could be forgotten as childish drivel, and if you read it too late, you'll regret it.
About 22-25 is a good age for it.
But if you haven't read it yet, and you're older than that, or younger, don't let that stop you.
I'll be posting the annoucnment for the Chaos Magic workshop today. I want to get it out this morning, because people need some good warning :)

Here's a funny for ya:
I was writing my fanfiction the other night, big ole long story full of angst with my character pining away for a gorgeous Elf who's not interested... (OK, it's Glorfindel from Lord of the Rings.)
It bled into my dreams, apparently. I dreamt that I was bored and depressed, and I flew out to meet you and you flirted like mad. It was wonderful because I knew you didn't mean a damn thing by it, and then I flew home. Isn't that funny? I imagine that costs a lot more than a month's worth of St. John's Wort. I really gotta quit writing such cheesy stories...
Now, seeing as you haven't met me yet, I'm curious:
What'd I look like?
And I'd be happy to flirt with you whenever you'd like.
Well, silly, you looked like your pictures. Although strangely, you seemed to have this strange computer nerd friend who wore a baseball cap with those oversized shirts and sport shirt who kept wanting me to leave...
I got The Little Prince as a gift when I graduated Kindergarten from my Philipino babysitter.
I haven't read it since I was a teenager and don't remember any of it, so perhaps it's time for a re-read.
Looking forward to the workshop. Might even get me into a skirt.
I'll be getting you some instructions for the evening soon.
Hmm, good thing you mentioned that, I totally forgot about the whole set-up thing.

That's a good book.
If you liked The Little Prince you may like The Stone and the Flute
by Hans Bemmann.
I'm re-reading it for the nth time, this time with my s/o. When he can tear himself away from his computer before midnight, that is. :)

Re: That's a good book.
Monika had "A Little Prince" waaaay back in the day (like the 1980s) and we also used to watch the anime cartoon version of it on Saturday mornings.
The only problem is...I remember all that but absolutley nothing as to what the book is about!

Re: That's a good book.
Then you should re-read it :)

Ooh, Le Petit Prince... I remember it well. Excellent book - right up there with Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Velveteen Rabbit, to name a few of my favorites.
Hmmm... I heard that sometimes airline tickets mysteriously show up in people's mailboxes at times... Think that might happen to anyone you know?
There is rumor that all is not lost with DMF.
Crossing one's fingers might help. . .
