dumb, idotic dreams last night that brought out the depths of my lack of self esteem. (sex was free and clear and no one would sleep with me because i was the fat girl.) oh, how i love my subconscious sometimes.

today begins the day of work where i have no idea how long i'm supposed to work each day or how things will work out with my schedule. meh.

had to close my window last night because rain was blowing in and landing all over my lamp and alarm clock. i was quite confused when it started to happen, as i've lived here over three years now, and this was the first time this had ever occurred. meh. i don't know how to spell occur-ed. first time this had HAPPENED. there's a way around it, oh yes.

coworkers talked me into reading some laurell k. hamilton.... :| to me, the hamilton books are to mercedes lackey's diana tregarde books, as terry goodkind is to robert jordan. pretty much the same story, but not as in depth and written very shoddily. it doesn't help that the books are written in first person (not that this is always a bad thing), and is made up of very very many tiny sentences. I went to the store. The girl saw me. She had a look in her eyes. It was evil. apparently, hamilton never rode the conjunction junction. ;)

um... nothing else to report.

Don't forget the porn. Hamilton is much pornier than Lackey

ah yes. that's the element i was missing, though i hadn't gotten to any juicy-ness yet, just some random perversion.

More like spanky, spanky, spanky. From reading rice's books you'd think every woman (and man) on earth is just melting inside at the thought of having their butt reddened.

Which tells me more about anne rice than I really wanted to know. Not the author I'd like to imagine those kind of things about.

sex was free and clear and no one would sleep with me because i was the fat girl

More or less sounds like being married. *bwah-wah-wah-waaaaaah* Not that I know personally, but, you know, so I've heard.

At least Rice more or likes women, even those with reddened butts, as opposed to John Norman's Gor books, where women are slaves and horses are pampered LOL

Heh. Have you ever read Houseplants of Gor? It's actually quite a clever parody of Gor and Gorians (there are actually men and women who try to live like...er...the "society" described in the Gor novels.

Yes, it's really funny, but if you've ever been in a gor chatroom on AOL, also kind of scary

Yah know, I tried AOL chatrooms all of once about 10 years ago. I went into a room called "puppy love" on account of I just got a new puppy at the time and thought "hey! I bet there's people there who can give my potty-training advice!"

Yeah. It was a room for people who really loved dogs. Like...physically.

Since then I've considered use of AOL to be kind of like liking the works of Ayn Rand - a sign that this person might be a touch...peculiar.

How could you not love "Atlas shrugged" or the "fountainhead" they changed my life... or rather would have if I hadn't been to busy filling my head with porn.

OK, the suggestion that any form of state intervention in society is wrong is just...gay. The suggestion that Laissez faire capitalism is the ultimate economic/socail novel even more so (a quick look at history will show you the end result of unrestrained capitalism is monopoly - and monopoly is hardly conductive to laissez faire capitalism) - what's really funny is that she undermines this argument in the fountainhead when roark does his own thing regardless of what his clients want.

Plus she has the theory that mankind and society depend on the "independent productives". Society depends on farmers, stamp collectors and clerks. They're the people who make it so that your phone works and your money doesn't dissappear from the bank. They're the ones that make it so you can freakin' eat. Creative "productives" can nudge society in a direction in real life, but only if society as a whole is ready to move in that direction. If it's not, the "creative productives" just stay in their jobs as barristas.

PLUS, on a more personal note, it's the ideology most professed to by a strange group of of artists and business people who are the least reliable people you'll ever know on a personal level - I mean, they have a rational ideology that tells them that their personal happiness is what's best for anyone and everyone else.

AND the contention that self-sacrifice for others is bad for a society...if that were true there'd be no society at all - motherhood is nothing if not self-sacrifice.

Plus she's actually kind of a bad writer. Not Dan Brown or R A Salvatore bad, but hardly anything I'd call "good".

In summary, I guess you could say those books have changed my life as well - because every time someone says "oh! Those books changed my life!" I want to put on a flannel shirt, pick up a large stick and shout "I AM A CANADIAN, AND YOU ARE A BABY SEAL CUB!" and then do what comes naturally.

Everyone says those books changed their lives, and the davinci code, hesse (Okay, I admit to Hesse)

I couldn't make it through the Davinci code, too many italics.

Ha ha. I haven't tried that book yet, but I'm all about smooth reading! I can't handle anything with too many footnotes, etc.

I get distracted too easily.

Never read Rand, though I've heard lots (in both angles) of the works.

I can honestly say that I've never touched an Ayn Rand book, unless it was on accident and I blocked it from my memory.

I used to try to find chatrooms in AOL, yeeeeeeeeears ago when the innernets were so durned new to me. I met a few people in there, but I remember so many creepy people in there and how difficult it was to find something to just.. chat about. Silly me to think that chat rooms were for just chatting, yes?

You always make me blush like a school girl, thankees.

I once had a boyfriend that tried to sneak something like that in, I was totally not expecting it and it scared the crap out of me.

Well, not LITERALLY, because that certainly would have ruined the rest of the night.

Haha, I hread some of her stuff. Funny. It was all rather simple, but at least somewhat entertaining. I can't say I'm usually into vampire and similar stories, though. I could never get into Ann Rice.

If you like vampires, check out the book, "Already Dead". It's a noir-like comedy and it's fan-fucking-tastic, and this is coming from someone who generally only reads contemporary and classic fiction.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to check it out! I tried to get into vampire novels when I was going through my gothy phase (twelve years ago) and I liked Queen of the Damned, but that was about the only one of her works that I didn't feel like I had to force myself through.

Yeah, Already Dead is COMPLETELY different. It was hysterical and a lot of fun. Then my cat ate it. LOL. Poor shredded book.

Huh. I wonder what that means. I used to be really good at doing interpretations, but I'm out of practice.

Most of my sex dreams are still quite violent, but thankfully, those have calmed down quite a bit.
