least that's what the people who make dresses seem to think.
+ movies should come with a "you may not want to watch this in
the wake of 9.11" warning.
+ some people are heroes. for many, many
+ i should really write this stuff down when i think of it, lest
i admit it. i watch dark angel. but i am concerned
about where the show is going. or amused. one of the two.
"hmmmmm. well, last year ended up with them admitting they like
each other. so the sexual tension is gone."
"we need it back! you can't have a show without sexual tension!"
"i know i know. but what can we do?"
"i've got it! we make this disease. and it'll be genetically
engineered just for him. and then, we make her the carrier. so that way,
they can't ever touch or he'll DIE!"

i had to fly. the airports were quiet and muted and strange.
things that made me jump that probably wouldn't have if they
happened before Tuesday. walking down columbus ave in boston last night, all
of the street lights suddenly went out. apartments and restaurants were
still lit, but the street lights went dark. and my heart stopped. and i
thought, "hm. this is actually kind of pretty! i wish i could focus on that
instead of thinking that i am going to get shot or that something will
certainly blow up." and then this morning, driving through the pike tunnel
[no, i don't know the real name or if it even has one] all the tunnel lights
suddenly went out. very freaky.
