You're not one of those people who collect "friends" like I collect pocket lint, are you? You know what I do with pocket lint, I imagine.

Well, I happen to be broke, unemployed, and therefore subject to boredom and melancholia (more like self-pity), punctuated by instances of vitriolic frustration whenever a day arrives when everything is closed and the more affluent world around me is carousing my neighborhood (a bar strip near a shopping district) making merry. Just how it goes, really, and there will always be my moment under the sun moon later in life, when others' stars wax dim.

I do absolutely adore the more abstract and slightly mystical semiotics of seasons, though. Fall and winter are just the underbelly of life: Demeter and Artemis as opposed to the Apollo and Dionysus (talk about an interesting mismatch of a pair, those last two!) of spring and summer. I just prefer fall because I'm a moonlight kind of person; I like summer for gardening, but disdain the sunlight and the warmth of it, and the rather egregiously rambunctious behavior of my fellow human beings.

I didn't do much at all on Skanksgiving, actually. I ended up texting my best friend "******** this s**t! G'night." at around 4:30 PM and went to bed. I have my moods, alas. You don't work in retail, do you?

Festivus is a holiday for the rest of us! Here is the story.

I'll have to send you some of my special spiced cranberry one of these days. I really don't give a damn about holidays, really; I like fall in a sort of mystical poetic way, but Halloween doesn't do much for me. None of it does, not even May Day now that I've grown increasingly sympathetic to free-market economics. If there were holidays celebrating raptors and corvidae, orcas, and the moon ... well, there is one for the moon, but it's Chinese and I never see anything going on in town relating to it.

I wouldn't be surprised if I spend Skanksgiving polishing my boots, cleaning my walls and ceiling fan, reading Camus, and flying a sign in front of a grocery store out of boredom and a desire for cash.

It really wasn't worth it in that all I got was some ghetto Iron Chef notoriety and praise for about five hours of work and nearly two hours of baking. But, I said I'd do it, and at least I got one of the pies because not many people showed up. If I make anything for my neighbors this Festivus it'll be a cranberry sauce, though I would much prefer just make a bunch for me. Want the recipe? The star anise wedge referred to is one of the "wings" protruding from the seed pod itself, by the way.

cat_sweatdrop I was a pretty messed up kid, actually, so the insomnia isn't much of a surprise. I'm still messed up, but calmer and wiser and less tormented and flamboyantly strange. People may think it's cool to be crazy, but it is a miserable experience full of fatigue, misunderstandings, alienation, and even some peril.

It would almost be a privilege to be slapped with an orca flipper, at least if an orca did the slapping. I cat_razz could make you a special case, I suppose ... grudgingly.

I'm very similar when it comes to sleeping, though I've gotten much better as I've grown older: when I was a kid I'd stay up until midnight to two in the morning watching the old movies they used to play before the infomercials arrived, and as a teen and later I'd often stay up until four or five listening to gloomy music and being strange, often inebriated. I still stay up until midnight to one every night, though. emotion_hug So, yeah, I hear ya, and will be presumptuous enough to virtually hug you.

Yesterday's chicken pot pies I made for my building proved to be a huge hit, though I was very tired and kind of grumpy because I was tired and slightly hung over. Yeah, I was up until four the night before. I'd offer you some but you're too far for me to deliver it to you in person, which is the only proper way to offer culinary delights to friends, lovers, or even beautiful or congenial strangers, I firmly believe.

emotion_hug It's fine. I understand how it can be to be too busy to give thought to some electronic ghost lurking unseen behind a wall of ASCII character.

What's been preoccupying your time, anyway? If I may ask. I'm super tired, so I'm resorting banal communication patterns. You can forgive me, or I suppose you can beat me. Just not with an orca flipper, please.

Figured I bored you to death with that last comment of mine, since you never replied. It's comforting to know you're alive and ... intact.

You get eaten by an orca, or something?

Well, at least if you anger a turtle you probably don't have much to fear, whereas if I were to accidentally own a surly octopus I'd be effectively evicted from my own pool for fear of inky and articulate reprisals. cat_xp So, fine, you win.

That one I showed you a pic of was very pretty, though, wasn't it? Funny how I used to sail in Puget Sound with a neighbor and his dad and have seen schools of orcas, but never knew there were those guys lurking in the murky depths. never got to see any orcas spy hopping, though. Another one of my fave animals, only I'll never have a pool large enough for one of those guys.

That song was from when the Beatles got trippy, most likely dropping acid back when it was popular, widely available, and quite potent. Fun times.

Heh, I've always thought turtles to be incredibly boring and uninteresting to look at or interact with. I like my animals to be mobile and expressive. They are fascinating creatures, though: one of those animals that seems to have arrived at its evolutionary niche, perfect for its environment — like sharks. I also like otherworldy-looking things, too, excepting the more creepy insects and the even MORE creepy parasites. Octopuses fit all my criteria: intelligence, mobility and articulation, flamboyant personality and expression, and strangeness.

Not that I'm implying my preference is superior to yours. I mean, some people have spiders and snakes for pets, and I want an attic full of bats and an octopus in my swimming pool. Time to break into SONG.

Agreed. While they may be a bit stinky they're actually very intelligent and fascinating creatures, who don't do things like transform into Lestat or Dracula and suck people's blood.

I also like octupuses quite a bit, too, and want to go up to Puget Sound (Seattle) to go on a dive to meet one of these friendly critters. And, of course, now I have that Beatles song in my head.

I kind of figured you thought that's what I meant by a bat house, as in ... a Bat House. Like Pee Wee's Playhouse, only stinky and devoid of sexual innuendos.

Considering how many birds are in decline and are becoming endangered, and that they're the world's chief insect control, I'm thinking it would be a good idea to start a global campaign to befriend bats and encourage and expand their habitats. Lest we end up eyeball-deep in creepy crawlies/flitters in a couple generations.

they're quite small, actually, as bats love to squeeze into dark crevices, apparently. Take a look Here.

Well, crows are just awesome, and it's not like I can ever convince them to get close to me in real life. I adore bats, actually, and would like to have a bat house or two if I ever buy a house with some property.

You know there's a bat on your head, right? cat_razz j/k Just saying "Hi!" and couldn't come up with something cool to say.
