Cas challenged me to be brave and ‘blog’ some of my writing.
Here goes. This is what it is (sometimes) like to be me:
slow burn thunderstorm days
tension of the infinite possibilities
body tingles and mind twitches along
invincible self becomes black hole
swallowed and crushed at the vanishing
event horizons of the self
I’m stretched out
for one glorious moment I’m
everything/no-one/alive/awake(for the first time)/a secret
what you and the world has been waiting for
even the seagulls are portents of greatness
and the crazy guys on the corner
share in this secret knowingness
later, in the pit:
bitterness and confusion
tripped over my own fear
fallen crashing from the heights
angry at the world because…
there are no Jedi’s,
not even me

Yours truly is now the proud owner of a Samsung R40 with lots of lovely RAM and sans Vista!
Thanks to the parent units are in order and so it has duly been given the moniker my Mother wished she had been given.
Clarissa. That’s correct folks. The new laptop is called Clarissa
Problem is I don’t have a laptop bag (I have one that fits but the padding in too small)… Methinks this is a good
excuse reason (ahem) to poke Cas and get her to remind me where she found the fluffy laptop covers, ’cause then it can go in the existing bag that I’m pleased with and not get scratched and bumped!
I so promised you all an update and I will get down to writing properly today or tomorrow but right now I have soo much surfing to catch up on!
(I have already put Caesar IV on it… how addicted am i?)
Happy Neko, signing off on her very own, shiny, lovely machine!

I should have my shiny laptop tomorrow, courtesy of the parent-unit. Lengthy update will ensue, but I feel bad writing personal stuff when I’m in uni, and the home PC is still toast…
Neko (who is just a little bit excited)
