the world is falling down, hold my hand

The other night my old retaining wall came tumbling down with a terrific crash! it happened after a day of birdwatching where i found a lucky penny in the snow followed by a rare visit from a mockingbird who let us get within 3 feet of where she perched on a bush near my driveway. The next day I was at my mother's during the big wind storm and crash! again. Her tree in the front yard had come down, luckily parallel to the street, no people got smushed and no roads blocked. Today my friend Dan jack- and sledge- hammered the bricks apart and I wheelbarrowed them over to a pile at the back of my driveway where i am to sneak a few stones into my garbage every week. At that rate, it'll take about 3.5 years to get rid of this pile and in the meantime, you just know i'm going to have to make something out of them.i think it's interesting that these things happened at the end of this mostly horrible year. Let everything fall so that in 2009 we can build anew...

the first outsider art?

The Voynich Manuscript is a 16th century 200-page document written in an untranslatable language. It consists of 170,000 characters broken up into 35,000 “words” using between twenty and thirty unique “letters.” It also has a number of drawings on various subjects including crudely drawn nude women.the Voynich Manuscript the other day, which is a 16th century 200-page document written in an untranslatable language.

Nobody knows what it says. Cryptologists and linguists are stumped by it. Some people think it’s a hoax or the word of someone with mental problems.

have fun friends!

that title can be read 2 ways...have fun my friends, or have fun friends like these two who are obviously confused and have combined halloween with christmas. hmmm, they might be onto something there...maybe i should show up at my cousin's tomorrow dressed as a candy cane, or, more likely, a fruitcake! either way, dressed up or not, i hope you all have a lovely holiday with maybe some madness and a miracle or two sprinkled in for good measure. joy to the world...

Yes, Nick Nolte was the star of one of my dreams... I was trying to decide if I wanted him to be my boyfriend (he had a huge beer belly), he had a little competition but i cant remember who it was...Nick Nolte was a fisherman, but just for himself. We were nearly homeless (or nomads), always having to make a little bed here or there at night. There was this one street filled with paintless houses, very tall and propped up by stacks and stacks of chairs. This is where the college kids lived. The freshmen had to live on the top floor in the attic and they would go up these LONG ladders from the outside to get their stuff there. They were all barely dressed, wearing bathing suits and bikinis, as it was very hot out. At one point I couldnt find Nick Nolte and me and this girl went through his little pile of stuff and found balloons (like the find they make balloon animals out of). Didn't know what that meant and then he came back. He'd been fishing.

old celebrity dream

Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords was my boyfriend in this dream and he was working on sabotaging someone's project, I was helping. Part of the plan was slathering glue on the back of these paintings and displaying them as though they were the work of the artist. Jemaine (and I) purposing did it worng and when they were displayed, all the paintings fell apart. The only problem was, it was apparent that it was Jemaine who ruined the artists work and he got in big trouble. My mom was there and yelled at Jemaine. I was mad too and he felt bad. To make up, he donned an alien head costume. I put one on too. There was a cut out for our faces and Jemaine started making alien sounds and I did the same. It was funny and we made up. I was so happy and wanted to tell him we should never fight again and I really felt like we'd be together forever.

Next we find ourselves preparing for a gala event. There are other people helping and then there's just us and this short woman with frizzy hair and an attitude. (she might have been the artist from before). Jemaine starts spending way too much time with her and I become jealous. He senses this and storms out. I am very upset, but the show must go on and does. The party is on and there are celebrities everywhere. I am looking for Jemaine but Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones (or Whats-Her-Name as I refer to her in the dream) are clowning around and dancing right in my way. Finally I say Get outta my way! and when they let me by I say: You dancing fools! with a big smile on my face so that they dont think i'm too rude. Jemaine is talking to that stupid girl again, so I go talk to Vince Vaughn to make HIM jealous. Then I wake up.

Here's an old dream I had: it was about a girl(me) and 2 guys. One rich guy, one poor guy, set back in time early 1900's maybe? maybe a little sooner, some other country. i was supposed to be with the rich guy but wanted to be with the poor one, played by benecio del toro. there was some squirmish at a party and benecio and i took off. he wanted to show me a good time but we had to walk, it was going to take days of walking to get there. on the way, we saw the rich guy at a fancy bar hotel, another squirmish then we were hiding, then we had to go back and he lost his nice suit but then got it back by diving into this water, not like a lake or anything, something industrial, the suit was all he had, he got it back. then there were these 3 rats, they had something he needed too and he was trying to get it back and then said screw it and took out his little knife and stabbed one in front of me. i then knew he had grown up in a tough world and was holding things back for my sake, to not look so rough...woke up.
