What Sarah Said

What Sarah Said
by Death Cab For Cutie

And it came to me then
That every plan
Is a tiny prayer to Father Time

As I stared at my shoes
In the ICU
That reeked of piss and 409

And I rationed my breaths
As I said to myself
That I'd already taken too much today

As each decending peak
On the LCD
Took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines
And year-old magazines
In a place where we only say goodbye

It stung like a violent wind
That our memories depend
On a faulty camera in our minds

And I knew that you were truth
I would rather lose
Than to have never lain beside at all

And I looked around
At all the eyes on the ground
As the TV entertained itself

'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous paces bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes round
And everyone lifts their head
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said

That love is watching someone die
So who's gonna watch you die?

Making excuses

I stopped making excuses for someone I loved today.

I expected anger; instead, I was met with relief, and gratitude.

Wikipedia in my pocket

Screenshots from the iPhone:

I did it... and I'm proud.

Wikipedia- the whole darned multigigabyte thing- has been downloaded, re-indexed, compressed, and transferred to the iPhone for offline reference.

Makes me all warm and tingly inside, I tell ya.

More screenshots from the webpage of Tom Haukap, the German programmer who enabled this beautiful, beautiful thing.

Now I just have to sort out brightfame and currycrab90...

Painting and Photography.

Good painting doesn't require creativity.
Art photography requires creativity.
Good painting "just" requires guts.

Whedon's Firefly

After all these years, after all the recommendations, I'm finally getting around to Firefly.

And I'm loving it. It's like a racism-and-misogyny-lite fusion of Space Opera and Western stories I adored as a child.

God bless BitTorrent.

I seem to have pulled a muscle in my thigh carrying kumchi uphill.
