Left: Bene (so big!), Medusa, Suda, and Nedra. The contrast between Nedra (the sprouted baby) and the pit I started at home at the same time could not be more different. The home pit’s sprout is almost 10 inches tall (I’ve cut it down twice) and is just now starting to develop leaves. Nedra seems determined to leaf from the get-go.
Right: my nasturtiums. Those are actually re-/self-seeds from last year’s nasties (I practice benevolent neglect in my garden). I’m fairly sure they have plans for world domination. I’m so proud.
To paraphrase Angela Davis, “how can six lines abolish a social structure that took years to build?” I would say that we’re still living with the social conditions that served to enable slavery, especially when you note that the 13th amendment permits slavery in the case of…

This *will* be my epitaph. On the other side of the gravestone, it will read “Hold my drink, I want to try something.”
|Eldergoth:||Hey are you coming out this weekend? I'm trying to figure out if it be worth it.|
|Postpunker:||No, you know I don't do well with Goths... except you, I mean.|
|Eldergoth:||What are talking about?!|
|Postpunker:||You know how I get stressed out. They wear a Dead Boys shirt they got at Hot Topic and tell me its a t shirt for an "old vampire movie."|
|Eldergoth:||No, no, I mean -really? for fuck's sake- what I mean is YOU are a Goth... right?|
|Eldergoth:||What?! Oh, come on! You wear a lot of black, you watch classic horror, you paint and write poetry, you're snarky-|
|Postpunker:||I guess I'm kind of an arty intellectual.|
|Cyber:||Hey, what are we talking about?|
|Eldergoth:||You are, right now, wearing a skeleton key necklace, all black clothing, and you have Talking Heads, The Fall, and Wire buttons and patches on your portfolio, we were JUST talking about Depeche Mode-|
|Postpunker:||None of those things make me a Goth, I'm sorry.|
|Eldergoth:||-but but but the eyeliner!|
|Cyber:||I'm wearing eyeliner!|
|Postpunker:||I do like a lot about the whole Goth scene and all kinds of Gothic art but I just can't squeeze into that box. I'm not saying I'm better or worse than you; I'm just me. Honestly, I don't want to give up anything about myself to fit any group's mould. Do you understand?|
|Eldergoth:||That is soooooo hardcore Goth.|
|Postpunker:||THIS IS WHY YOU CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS! /storms away/|
|Cyber:||Elder. elder. Elder. elder. Elder, I'm Goth. I'll hang out with you!|
|Eldergoth:||So that Additall doesn't help you pay attention then?|
|Cyber:||IT HELPS ME DANCE-FIGHT INVISIBLE SLOWMO NINJAS!|
|Eldergoth:||/runs after Postpunker/ Don't leave me, Ian!|

I love my livejournal.
I miss the community of LJ, but I’m very grateful that it still exists. I need a place where I can put my private thoughts and still be able to share them. Part of my problem with pen-and-paper journalling is the circular nature - no one else reads it, so the thoughts just keep in their own little groove.
