hee hee hee.

weird freaking DREAMS last night. egads. i am forcing myself through the legends vol 1 or whateverthehellitis, cheesy dragonlance novel, war of the twins, time of the twins, test of the twins, sex of the twins, whatever. and i'm at the end of the first book, i wanted to finish reading it last night, because it's finally getting somewhat GOOD. the last thing i read was when Raistlin, in all his creepiness, was reminding Crysania that the Cataclysm was happening TOMORROW...... tomorrow.... and they were surrounded by all these signs that the gods were angry with them and such things.

so i went to sleep and dreamed that mom and i were trying to escape the temporary end of the world, as God was going to hurtle a mountain down upon Phoenix, which happened to be the center of all that was evil in my dream, appparantly. i remember packing what we could drag in a wagon behind us, and how we were trying to make as much room as possible, and HURRY.

i remember standing at a gas station on the outskirts of phoenix, thinking we didn't make it. i watched as zillions of little (what are the little dragons called that have only two hind legs and wings for arms? crap. i need coffee before trying to tell a story!) fly down, spitting fire at all the humans, searing them and burning them to the ground. i remember seeing them fly overhead, feeling the flames surround me and burn me alive.

but then i was walking around afterwards, seeing all the human parts and burned and torn flesh, seeing how few humans survived out of that. a hand here... a kneebone and part of the leg there, a gigantic flap of skin on the cactus off of the road... and thinking about how hard it was going to be for everyone to survive not only because of the physical damage to the planet, but also the psychological damage to the human brain for having been through such an ordeal.

damn. i'm hungry.

OOO!
You live in Phenoix??? I have to go there for some job training here sometime soon...for, like, three days. You'll have to reccomend me things to do while I'm there, and not in training.

Not lately, no, so they keep coming up with excuses to want to raise various taxes.

Re: OOO!
Voters voted to raise our tax here in Vancouver from 7.7% to 8.1%... and now that everyone voted for it (well, not EVERYONE, but obviously a majority), everyone is bitching left and right.

I keep telling myself that it was for public transit, of which I am a giant fan.

Re: OOO!
No, I was fired from the job before I ever had to go for the training.

Oh Raistlin, poor phlegmy hacking sickly Raistlin... I have such fond memories of those books. Whither Tasslehoff? He was always my favorite...

he was there, too. he snuck in the time travelling spell and ended up in the past with raistlin and caramon and the cleric. :)

and as i was saying to someone, anyone who hears the word 'kender', knows what it means, and DOESN'T smile..

.. doesn't have a SOUL.

with only two hind legs? stingers on their tail?

that's a wyvern but i'm not sure if that is what you meant.

that whole first book i thought was sloooow up till the last...quarter maybe.

YES. wyvern, that was EXACTLY what i was looking for. i knew i could count on you!

and that was exactly how it was for me, too, it was dull as... melting butter, until the last quarter.

now i'm forcing myself through the second book, and hoping that it gets at least somewhat exciting SOON.

"they wake up. they look around. they sleep. they wake up. they discuss their surroundings. they sleep. raistlin sends caramon to the market, and makes crysania sleep, while he explores his surroundings." *YAWN*

oooh melting butter is indeed dull.

"raistlin decides to take a sebatical, drinking a nip from his flask" wait...no.

at least it isn't instrunction manual borring

barbarella to the rescue!
i generally am, too, but my freaking valium i swear has burned out more brain cells than years of pot could ever do.

and there is that. i would hate to read an instruction manual as to how raistlin's mind works. can you imagine?

Re: barbarella to the rescue!
i hear that! when i had my tonsels out and when i had my wisdom teeth out was a mostly now forgotten week long blur. i swear that stuff is like, brain...eating.

egads! that would be a straaange instruction manual. i imagine half of it would be in draconic or what ever the language of magic is!
