tiny fragments of perfection


  • if i was all the colors, i would paint you pretty in gold in a picture. (jason mraz/zero percent interest).

  • as i took him in my arms he screamed i'm not insane i'm just looking for someone to understand my pain... (five for fighting/the devil in the wishing well)

  • only the curious have something to find (nickel creek/this side)

  • you dream of colors that have never been made, you imagine songs that have never been played (this side/nickel creek)

  • but there's something in the way you laugh that makes me feel like a child... aspects of life they confuse me, you and your thesis amuse me... after and afternoon with you... and your rich brown eyes your lips and your dark hair, elbows and exposed knees tossing toward the ceiling... after an afternoon... (jason mraz/ after an afternoon)

a long awaited end

Great post. Thank you.

I would suggest that anyone who would like to understand the idea that Chuck advances a little better should read "the Regiment" series by John Dalmas. It's science-fiction, but it has as a central theme "why do warriors fight?". They fight because that's what they do. And societies need them.

Also, Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" shows the same idea, but to a lesser extent. It shows why societies should NOT try to get rid of the warriors. Because, someday, they might be needed.

On a somewhat related note, I would actually suggest reading ANYTHING by John Dalmas. I don't know if he's a Christian, or not, but the central themes of his books are always "Man is not defined by his circumstances. Man is defined by his reactions to circumstances". I have NEVER had an author affect how I thought more than John Dalmas has. The phrase I remember best, and try to live by, is "Life will give you the answers you need. If you don't have the answer, you don't need it.".

  • "Beautiful, deadly with a gun, and fellow Alias fan"

  • "There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal, The dreams of a million girls Who are more than pretty May come true if they punch a hippy, Oh she may turn out to be The queen of femininity, There she is, the IMAO T-Shirt Babe, There she is, your ideal With so much ammo She'll take the town by storm, With her all-American face and form, And there she is, Firing in the air she is, Fairest of the fair she is, The IMAO T-Shirt Babe"

don't make me sissify you


  • please keep the comments "cussin'"-free, and no taking of the Lord's name in vain (including in initials form and in euphemistic form). my grama reads my blog, and i don't like those words either. if you post something i don't like, i will change your wording to make you sound like a sissy.

  • p.s. if you're a troll, i reserve the right to either wingardium leviosa your butt (which means delete and ban you), or the more fun option, to put a pretty bonnet on your head and lead you around on a lovely purple leash and make you do my bidding. yay!!
