|02:21 am - you might surprise yourself|
fencing club nationals are at unh this weekend, in the whitt. you guys shoudl come cheer us on to glory, and stuff. but unfortunately, i won't be fencing much myself, as i have been busy/lazy/distracted a lot this year and haven't been to so many practices as i would like. so i am a sub, in case one of our starters comes down with malaria or something. but yeah.
i just sent my parents an email tonight and signed it "your baby boy". i'm not really sure why.
we had a quiz in moral phil about a socratic dialogue about some invisibility ring or something. the question was what will some ancient greek dude do if he gets this magic ring. i coudlnt remember so i wrote "destroy it in the fires of mordor". the teacher's comment was "wrong socratic dialogue"
i am reading "ishmael" now. people have been telling me to since high school. so far it is mostly goofy wishy-washy hippie stuff, but some good points snuck in late on (i'm about halfway through. it's a damn quick read, i went thru like 100 pgs in 2 or 3 hours) so i will reserve judgment until the end. it is set up JUST like a socratic dialogue, which i am not a huge fan of. there's only one real logical fallacy i've seen so far though, so he's doing better than socrates did
it's about a psychic gorilla named ishmael that teaches this dude about why humans are destroying the earth and how we shoudl live to be in harmony with nature and whatnot. it's not as cheesy as i made it sound though, it's quite interesting. ishmael is a patronizing
dude gorilla though, which is irritating
ministry has a cd named Sphinctour. that is creepy. i downloaded psalm 69 and most of it is incredibly awful. oh well. 'scarecrow' is kinda cool
i downloaded the complete nirvana discography, 700 friggin mb, and when it finally finished the fucking thing was corrupt hjavhrelkjfkehfehf lameoids. so i tried to join the forum to bitch about it and see if there were any suggestions, and my confirmation email never came. ha.
state: perverse. and not even in the fun way
np: Violent Femmes - Add It Up (1981-1993) - 14 - Old Mother Reagen

was an intriguing book... I particularly liked his interpretation of the Cain and Abel story. Also, I shall remind you of Quinn's description of how he wrote the book
that part was interesting. i will be posting my thoughts on it all sooner or later. i think i am going to steal your idea of posting interesting snippets of things i am reading, i read a whole bunch of great stories today

I find it to be a great way of avoiding writing any original journal content.
i can't think of anything witty in reply, so... LOL
