snapshots of an idle mind

i joined facebook.

this is a problem. it’s not as bad as it could be because it only takes a few minutes here and there and there is very little required beyond some clicking. that said, i joined yet another freaking online community and have moved another little piece of my life to a screen.

i can see it now “sass loved the internet but didn’t spend nearly as much time outside as she ought.”

course i did eat two meals on patios yesterday and it was stupendous. my shoulders turned a little bit pink for a few minutes and my body rejected it’s usually craved vitamin D supplement [i started taking cod liver oil capsules (tasteless and easy to swallow, if it stinks it’s rotten) and for the first winter ever my skin didn’t itch like i wanted to rip it off and i don’t look like a lizard in the places that i shave my legs. highly recommended.]

pyrhonik was randomly stranded in toronto and we got to spend the day together and then princess valium joined us for a while in the evening. he’s a very cool cat y’all so if he shows up in your town you should go and hook up with him.

pyr can i post pics?


see how i assume he’ll read this? lordy lordy i’m rude.


it’s always interesting to put a face to a name that you’ve met on the internet. they are *never* the same as you imagine them.

almost always there is more life in them. you can’t ever imagine someone fully until you spend time with them because there are always little details that you don’t know about.

they could whistle through their teeth all the time

they could hum

they could flip their hair constantly

they could fade out of conversations and observe them instead

they could be afraid of cats

they might be conscious of every move they ever make

who knows, there’s always something you’re not imagining when you meet someone you’ve known for a long time through a flat medium. actually that’s it exactly. life is another dimension.


oh god, i joined facebook and i love it.

i’ve already got a drinks date for may 5th with an aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuulllldd girlbud out of the deal!

i love the internet you know that? i have in fact been having a love affair with the internet since nineteen ninety three or so. that may be the longest successful relationship i’ve ever had after all that.


oh god, yet another online community.



  1. Yea loving the Facebook thing, though I keep finding people on it I never wanted to speak to again and wondering if they feel the same become compelled to poke them. I’m weird that way.

  2. that just means more friends!

    i’ve also noticed that everyone i “meet” online that i later meet in person is better looking in real life.

    this gives me hope that i look better in person, too. (please don’t ruin this delusion for me).

  3. i hear facebook is more crack-like than myspace. you’ve been warned.

    i notice that people in person are totally different than their online personna…not different bad, just different. and, my jdate experiences have led me to believe that all men lie about their height and are a good three levels below their posted if they look like a 6, they’re a 3.

  4. Oh god facebook
    That thing just consumed my life when I first joined up!
    There are just too many things to poke around: people’s posted items, photos, walls, groups – you could spend a whole day just commenting on friend’s pages!

  5. And you’re living dolls :)

    Really, really. I know that often, only about 10% of the personality and the human essence manage to shine through on a blog.

    It was sweet meeting you and Princess Valium. Wish I could have stayed longer on that last evening and checked out the Toronto Night scene!

    Next time ;)

  6. I wish I was stranded in the city and got to spend the day with you. Someday, right? And I definitely think I should spend more time on doing nothing. But it’s not that easy. At least I got myself to the gym yesterday after work. Yaay!
