nevermind-the-witchcraft tagged me.
You can tell a lot about a person by what kind of music they listen to. Put your music on shuffle and write down the first 10 songs that come on. Tag 10 people you would also like to learn more about through their taste in music.
What the hell. I had shuffle on anyway. I apologize for nothing. It’s actually a pretty accurate demographic of my iPod right now.
I tag gothiccharmschool, georgie-chaos, essenceofbananafish, danirya, thelonelywitch, upthroughthecracks, and whoever else cares to do this. I’m too tired to get ten names.
Did you know there’s a whole line of officially licensed Star Trek beers called the Federation of Beer? Well there is, and the newest one, called Klingon Warnog, will be showcased at a launch party here in Seattle at Gamma Ray Games' Raygun Lounge! The party is this Friday at 7PM, it's free to enter and costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory to attend. The event is all-ages, but you must be over twenty-one to purchase the beer.
Oh Eviltwin, guess what you’re getting for your birthday…
Just wrote up a formal appeal letter to my insurance company and put it out to go out in the mail tomorrow morning.
I included everything, and I hope to hell that this works.
I’m pushing really, really, REALLY hard and I’m pretty sure that I won’t even get it done when I need it done by. I might not be able to get it until next year.
I’ve been stressed all day about this. Fucking hell, can’t I just have a day off.
"practice your worthiness of love" is probably one of the most important ideas i ever came across
it comes from this “I choose to stay present, to unlearn how to unlove, to love, and to practice my worthiness of it”
all people need love but no one is entitled to love. not even from themselves. its a complex idea, that you have to cultivate your inherent meritoriousness. you can not let it get rusty or grow weeds. everyday you must try to be gentle with soft things, you must tend to the ways you are good and brave and kind and velvet whiskey warm, and to the places where there is rot and sorrow and something you want to break.
you must be decent, actively. and a thing must be loved before it is lovable, so maybe also the first thing you have to do, the very first, it be worthy of your own love. and you get to decide what those rules for worthiness will be, because everyones rules will be different. you must decide yours and practice them before all the others.
and, i like the prayer of saint francis for all this. i dont know what i pray to every time. but
"make me an instrument of your peace"
it has to be active. an instrument is tangible, your heart is a muscle. you have to move to keep your muscles warm.
And to make my night just THAT much better, I just dropped my glasses in the toilet.
For whatever reason tonight is stressful and I want a hug and I should go to bed.
