----Dream1
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.
----Dream2 (characters = RP chars)
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."
"RL?"
"You don't get online much, do you?"
(book published in 1997)

1. Go into your LJ's archives.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.

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.

Sorry y'all.

1. Annida
2. I should hope so!
3. We met online, I know that, and it was on Shadow Realms? I was playing my Avatar in vampire form.. or was it on Legacy of the Damned? bah, you tell me, I have a crap memory for these things.
4. You make me smile a lot, lift my spirits. In terms or RP, you made me think and react.
5. You're a clever, intelligent and sensitive man. You beat yourself up over details sometimes, which makes you even more endearing, but at the same time makes me want to throttle you :)
6. I guess I always enjoyed RP with you, so those are some of the fondest memories I have with you, other than the few times we've spoken on the phone together.
7. For.. ever? I hope.
8. lol, yes Jeff, I love you
9. No, I used to though
10. Yes, I'd kiss you.
11. Yes, I'd hug you.
12. I've not met you, but from pics, I like your smile...
13. Your sincerity and sensitivity.
14. You're already damned cool, shaddup.
15. 11.
16. aaargh. Cause this is a hard test.
17. Of course you're loveable.
18. *huffs* 6 years? I'm approximating.. I may be about 3 years off either way, lmao.
19. delectable.
20. I don't remember very well, since we met online, I reserve to answer this again if we meet irl.
21. same as above.
22. I could tell you but you might kill me. Eh, what the hell.. Your sensitivity.. also your comfort zone. There you go.
23. I assume you'll get married if that's what you want to do.
24. I think details make you happy.
25. I'm... not sure what makes you tick .. what makes you sad is possibly not being able to provide what you want for the people you love, but then again, I might be wrong.
26. Hah. Motorcycles remind me of you. Especially big, noisy huge ones.
27. Hmm.. What would I give you? I'd spank your bum, hahahaha. A good ole spanking. Cause you deserve it.
28. As well as you let me know you.
29. I've never met you irl, so uh.. never? Online.. about a week ago I guess.
30. A few times, but I don't remember them off the top of my head right this instant.
31. Everybody is capable of doing that. Whether you would or not depends on the circumstances.
32. Right now? I feel like our relationship has become a little stronger than it was in the past. Again. It all depends on how much time we're willing to put into learning about each other.
33. I feel I could talk to you about anything. Whether you would listen or not is another matter, lol.. I thik you're a good listener though, and I think you would in fact listen.. not that I'd want to burden you with my shite.
34. I ... might? I don't know.. it's a scary thought to put this up. I don't think I"ve minced my words at all.. but.. it's been fun, really.. sitting back and thinking about you :)

2. Are we friends? Oh, yes. I couldn't live without you being my friend.
3. When and how did we meet? Tower, because I had a quote you liked in my thingymajig.
4. How have I affected you? ...This one is so very, very hard to answer. You've helped me grow and know myself in so many different ways; you changed my life.
5. What do you think of me? Pssh! I love you, you know that.
6. What's the fondest memory you have of me? Just ONE?? Shit. Um. Well, I choose two. Me and M watching you play Quake, and getting the giggles while we said aloud everything that came on the screen...and just falling asleep next to you.
7. How long do you think we will be friends? If I have my way? Forever.
8. Do you love me? Yesh!
9. Do you have a crush on me? Crush? Hmm. I wouldn't call it a crush, a crush on you is impossible now. A crush is too insignificant!
10. Would you kiss me? Yup, I have, and I would again!
11. Would you hug me? Oh lord, yes, I miss Jefe hugs.
12. Physically, what stands out? Your physique, and your lips.

14. Do you wish I was cooler? You can't get any cooler!

16. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it. Dueno. I don't need to explain. Or Jefe!
17. Am I loveable? Mhmm, incredibly so.
18. How long have you known me? ...oh, bloody hell. Um. Like..7 years?
19. Describe me in one word. Overwhelming.
20. What was your first impression? That you were intelligent and fun to talk to.

22. What do you think my weakness is? Your inability to be completely selfish when it comes to things you need and want.
23. Do you think I'll get married? Yes, you deserve a loving, devoted wife to take care of you.
24. What makes me happy? Homemade Apple Pie ice cream, and collars.
25. What makes me sad? Losing something you love, or letting things get beyond your control.
26. What reminds you of me? OH GOOD GOD. So many things. Stabbing Westward, Papa John's pizza, martial arts and snow. Lots of snow.
27. If you could give me anything what would it be? Contentment.

29. When's the last time you saw me? *cries* January of 2001.
30. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't? No. You're one of the few people I'm utterly, completely honest with.
31. Do you think I could kill someone? If you got mad enough? Yes, but...I think you'd feel bad about it after.
32. Do you think our friendship is getting stronger/weaker/or staying the same? I think, as the time goes by, it gets stronger. I don't see you/talk to you often enough, but it never goes away.

34. Are you going to put this on your LiveJournal and see what I say about you? Already did, though it was shorter. I don't know how I missed this on your journal!

Re: I'd missed this! Been way too busy.

Much Better. =)
brightdreams From: brightdreams Date: August 7th, 2004 02:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Among the things I didn't think I'd ever do...

1. Who are you?
Liz
2. Are we friends?
I think we lost that a long time ago, sadly.
3. When and how did we meet?
Through Monarchy, or back in 2000, when I was working at the mall.
4. How have I affected you?
Well, hell. Knowing you kicked me out of a rut; I moved halfway across the country (okay, 1/4 of the way) to live with you, not knowing what the city I was to live in looked like, smelled like, tasted, and only being vaguely aware of where it was. That experience, powered by the way I felt about you, made me realise that risking everything is easier than I'd thought, and that adventure isn't just a word. Considering the places I've been since, and the things I've done, I have to thank you for that. Also, you made me wiser in the ways of relationships. I don't think I'll go into how, because some of it reflects things that were negative, and I'd rather leave old wounds uncovered on both of us.
5. What do you think of me?
*chuckles* A lot of things, but largely that you still have a lot of learning to do when it comes to life. As do I.
6. What's the fondest memory you have of me?
For a long time, most of my memories of you were tinged with bitterness, but they aren't anymore. I'd have to say...well, hell, I don't really have a favorite, but if I'm forced to pick one - "jefff ceeture"
7. How long do you think we will be friends?
I don't know if we'll be friends again, or if we'll remain as we are, to be honest.
8. Do you love me?
Not anymore, no. The last vestiges of that were wiped out shortly after I moved back here, and replaced with anger, which burned out. Now? I hope you're doing well, and I occasionally miss our old friendship, from before when we dated.
9. Do you have a crush on me?
See #8
10. Would you kiss me?
I think that era's long gone.
11. Would you hug me?
If I saw you again, I think I probably would.
12. Physically, what stands out?
You're so damn skinny!
13. Emotionally, what stands out?
(HEY! These questions aren't the same as mine, damnit!) I'm opting to leave this one out, because there are a lot of things that stand out.
14. Do you wish I was cooler?
I honestly don't care one way or the other.
15. On a scale of 1-10, how hot am I?
It depends on how you consider the scale.
16. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
I called you Jeffy, largely because it was a softening of your name, and it was bouncier/sillier too.
17. Am I loveable?
Yes
18. How long have you known me?
I knew you from 1999 until 2002. I'm not sure I do anymore.
19. Describe me in one word.
Not a possibility
20. What was your first impression?
He's so SKINNY! ;)
21. Do you still think that way about me now?
Haven't seen you since 2002, but I'm assuming so.
22. What do you think my weakness is?
The feeling that you're constantly lacking -something- indefinable, and the ways in which you seek to fill that feeling.
23. Do you think I'll get married?
Possibly.
24. What makes me happy?
When the people close to you trust you.
25. What makes me sad?
The exact opposite of that.
26. What reminds you of me?
Indiana. Pictures. Sometimes the tv...
27. If you could give me anything what would it be?
I'm honestly not sure if there's anything that I could give you that would be of use or value to you.
28. How well do you know me?
I used to know you very well, I think. Now? not at all.
29. When's the last time you saw me?
It was actually probably july 7th of 2002, because I insisted on arriving home a day before my birthday.
30. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
Absolutely. And there were times when I did, and you didn't hear me, as there were times when you did, and I didn't hear you.
31. Do you think I could kill someone?
If pushed hard enough, yes.
32. Do you think our friendship is getting stronger/weaker/or staying the same?
Good question.
33. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
I used to feel that way.
34. Are you going to put this on your LiveJournal and see what I say about you? A bit late for that, as it's why I'm here.
