But lurking somewhere in that brightness is something else, a desperate need:...– Jacob, TWoP “Water of Mars” review
I spent a good deal of my Christmas holiday cleaning out / organizing our office. I know, I know, I’m living the high-life! I did a paltry amount of work on it on Saturday but yesterday Ivan pitched in to go through his papers and electronics and, save for a small pile each that needs to be sorted and filed, we’ve gotten most of it done. We also hung up a piece of art in there that...

TUMBLR! WHY YOU BE EATING MY POSTS?!?!?
Oh, and after we finished watching “Company” I discovered that he had never seen “Singing in the Rain.” NEVER. I quickly rectified that situation.
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me...
I feel like I don’t have my Christmas Mojo this year. It just feels ordinary and, to make it worse, I keep buying presents for Ivan because I don’t like whatever it is I do get him. “Meh” gifts, everyone of em.

Brittany: If it were, Santana and I would be dating.
poem: Harvest Moon
Under the harvest moon, When the soft silver Drips shimmering Over garden nights, Death, the gray mocker, Comes and whispers to you As a beautiful friend Who remembers.
