Me...I was in a big old cave, three leveled in a way. The top level was where there was the entrance, and my spiffy car (nissan z!), and then there was a waterfall that fell over that level into the second, grotto level..then there was the ground/third level and that's where I was.
Then there was a volcano/earthquake and the water turned to magma...
And then I died.

I = Case, You = Liz. We were walking down a street, urbanized. Little houses and apartments...then we went up into one, yours, and into your bedroom? Maybe living room. Your computer monitor was black, and when I touched the mouse, it came alive. At first the screen was like...breasts with an army star tattooed on the left side (the right) one...then it became like, the sides of a large chested woman (cleavage) with a hippy like sign of flowers and abstract designs drawn in chalk on a chalkboard held between. When I touched the monitor, I felt, rather than heard, 'I have to do this for his own good' or something like that. I can't remember. It was unsettling, whatever it was. Then you were trying to get me to leave, and I felt another 'character' wanting to get involved, waiting till I was leaving, and in my mind it was Cilea (weird, no). Then the clock said it was 9, and for some reason, I -had- to leave at 9...and I woke up and it was almost 9. :)
----These next are from a book called Evolution, by Stephen Baxter. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. OMG. Post will elaborate.
These particular proboscideans were omnivorous. They were scarcely fleet-footed hunters. But on the whole a meat-eating elephant was best avoided.
For their part the females were generally content with the loose satellite male communities that accreted around them. Males were occasionally useful, obviously necessary, rarely troublesome.
For the first time in 4 billion years, heat had touched the Devils Tail [a comet]. Fragile ice sculptures older than earth were quickly lost.
In a dangerous world, humility made for longetivity.
Six-ton tanks were not well equipped to deliver tender loving care.
They still contented themselves with the darkness and the corners of the empty world, nibbling on insects, eschewing any evolutionary innovations more spectacular than a new set of teeth.
So I was somewhat surprised to find that I'd been living in a year with a number and hadn't known it.
"They've got a terrific Mars-walk immersive VR. I'm told."
"I prefer RL."
"You don't get online much, do you?"

But you pay little attention to them, for they are merely shadows.
...Taking a lover was as of yet, mere theory...[but] I knew how the bouncy part worked!
I had all the normal inclinations of a healthy young woman and I was a little worried that I might be tempted. But I told myself sternly that I would never, never, let such inclinations affect my judgment.
His touch was pleasantly reassuring, for he was right -- I might just possibly have been killed. It was three against one, after all.
There are so many things I want to say, because it's been so long since I've said anything. I'll start out with, I got an interview! May 19th, which is a bit away, but it should be good. *crosses fingers*
In the quotes above, there's a book mentioned, Evolution. I recommend you get this book and read it. Seriously. It gave me much thought about well, evolution. Some of it is the allure of dinosaurs and creatures long gone that make you wonder about life past, some for the idea of nature being the force that nature is, and how evolution is not a goal, but a process, for nothing can ever be evolved. There is no end point. Except in a very fundamental way that there is always a time span. As they say: This too shall pass. Even if humans somehow don't kill themselves and kill their environment, I don't think we can alter the sun's life span....or the doom when this galaxy hits Andromeda’s, a billion years or so distant. Regardless of what creationists like to think, we were not the first here, nor I think, will we be the last.
One of the thing this author does manage to do remarkably well is take esoteric items, like a comet hitting the earth, and painting a beautiful picture with words. Not only is it horrible, but it is powerful and beautiful and awe inspiring. He can do this with the oddest things...I'm reading some of his other books, and he does it there to. Scarily, read Titan. Before any of the NASA stuff happened, or Bush, look what he predicted...
And some of his other books, the ones that aren't purely about evolution, but about humanity...he has these characters with vision. These characters with the will, the know-how...to make their dreams become true. I wish I could be like that, have a destiny that could change the planet, or mean the ever-life for humanity...
Enough of my raving. Stephen Baxter. Good Author. I'm kinda surprised I haven't heard of him till now, actually. Ah well. The beauty of being friends with the library.
Except that this is one friend who wants its stuff back!
Let's see, what other interesting things. Found out I'm going to be having a 3rd computer, so finally I can have my fileserver. What another fun thing to sink my time into! :) Got a picnic basket, because you need one if you are to go on a picnic. Recorded Iron Chef America. Found out I can't make my web cam behave as a picture taker. Very sad. Gonna get new hours at my current job. Holding my fingers for this job interview I will be having. Bri's done with school. Dachary is back on ICQ! So is Elizabeth of stripperness.
I had so much to talk about besides the sense of..wonder and joy..I get from reading these books, not to mention sadness...but...I'm tired now and this entry has already taken at least a week...
I'm looking forward to a lot of things, and most of all, that's a good thing.
