Dear Diary: outdone by myself

so i was going to put up a blog about how irritating it is to have awesomely great ideas when you are in the shower and can’t write these ideas down.  and i wrote a little blog, knowing full well that i’d done a similar blog to this a while back.

“well,” i said to myself, “i’ll just link to that previous blog, in case anyone wants to read the originaller version”.  (did you like that word?)

but then, after reading the FIRST blog, i’m like, “huh. that one is waaay better than this one today”.

so then, CRAP – outwitted and outwritten by my own former self!  damn, i hate showing myself up with myself!

in the land of fog and rain

   i like to merge worlds.   i dig the whole quantum physics thing,  and the possibility of multiple realities, alternate times, extra me’s out there doing something i’m not doing now, like having a boyfriend and getting laid.

i like to merge these other worlds into my now world.  clearly this started in my youth, when i was obsessed with the Twilight Zone (like now) and certain that the ideas presented in this show were not only possible but probable and actual.  this skewed my view of the world around me and caused me to look at everything in a more  un-conventional, out-of-the-box type of thinking that my peers did not have.

and so, days when i get a shot like this, just a lamppost sitting on a square of grass, that people pass every day without noticing, i see an old London style gaslight, that makes me feel i am walking the paths of Sherlock Holmes, or the frightening but fascinating Jack the Ripper.  and yes, the big glass windowed building doesn’t quite feel of cobblestone alleys and fog drenched passages, but then again, you can’t merge two worlds without bringing a bit of each.
