I have nothing to say.

. to anyone.  No apologies to make.  And no people to take with me on my journey, whatever will come of it.  It is as simple as that in fact.  My "roots" will most likely always be in a perpetual state of flux, just like the roots of the watercress.

Go on save yourself....and take it all out on me....   

Well I been watchin'
while you been coughin
I've been drinking life
while you've been nauseous
and so I drink to health
while you kill yourself
and I got just one thing
that I can offer

Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me yeaaaah!

well I'm not a martyr
I'm not a prophet
and I won't preach to you
but here's a caution
you better understand
that I won't hold your hand
but if it helps you mend
then I won't stop it

Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me yeaaaaah!

drown if you want
and I'll see you in the bottom
where you crawl
on my skin
and put the blame on me
so you don't feel a thing

Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me
Go on and save yourself
and take it out on me yeaaaahh!!!!

Elizabeth Taylor died today.....

I will miss her

Cat On A Tin Roof or Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  Anyone should watch these movies.

Whole Lotta Love....

...this song   has got to be about as old as I am.  It reminds me of Sundays with my father and music being played loudly throughout the house.  I remember thinking it was not a "softie" love song.  This is a love song with attitude and rawness to it.  Later on, I used this song to measure my daily 5k run.....later on to let go when I was angry.....it comes in handy now too...for totally different reasons:-)

Hallelujah

this song epitomises today...

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

SnM

I'm so glad I can listen to music in the office...

I can dance on this forever.....  Oh, let's talk about transgression and taboo at the same time! :-)

Keep going Wisconsin!

Who would have thought..., but we turned this into history.  I'm so proud of all of you who took a part in these protests!  It's good to draw some attention every now and again...:-)

Fed up with Windows

 I've started using my PC again after taking a break and it has got about 2 million updates, upgrades, fixes etc, which left me paralyzed for about an hour this morning looking at the damn pop-ups....so...  Somebody.  I know.  Well enough.  To trust.....is recommending Ubuntu.  Ok.  I hope you are right.  For your own sake!  :-)

Disappointed as hell!

It sucks!

Living Las Vegas

I want to live Las Vegas, where reality does not need to be proven to anyone.  Where I can just live in my own head.  Where I can construct and re-construct myself with every dawn and every dusk.  Where the challenge is to live up to my own imagination.  I want to live the hyper-me, the simulacrum that is my own being, devoid the burden of an original.  Should be pretty easy, no?

Diversity Council presentation tomorrow...

...which means I'm going to have a very stressful day.  And the topic does not help either: Intercultural Conflict Resolution. 

What can I say?!  It's panic at the disco! ^-^

Never mind the presentation!  What am I going to wear????  Ahhhh..

I am uber-awesome! :-D

....finished the best part of my Intercultural Conflict Resolution presentation for Wednesday....  Still needs polishing, but it's pretty much there!
Now I need a snooze.  Please do not wake me up, I've earned this!  :-D

this is what gave me nightmares last night.....

....  this song did the rounds in my head for the best part of the night!  Don't you just hate when this happens?!

....and the story goes....

....that when a guy wanted to dance with me the other night in Madison, I told him to come back when he starts producing enough estrogen.  Things I come up with sometimes.  I have no idea who the poor thing was otherwise I would apologize.  Luckily I was with friends in a civilized city.

Ooops....:-)

Reading..Jonathan Franzen "Freedom"

Gulped down "Corrections" which I left back in England unfortunately.  Then quickly "How To Be Alone" essay collection and now on to this one which fails to impress me so far.  I am taking it personally!  Jonathan, darling, please keep up with your own reputation.  Or maybe I should not have expected it would blow me away again.

For the first time in my life I failed to read Philip Roth's latest two novels.  Yessss!!!  I can do it!  He's become so redundant in topic and in approach!  I remember the pleasure with which I read "The Dying Animal" quite a few years ago.  I remember Harold Pinter in one of his last interviews.  When asked why he had not published anything lately, he replied that he has no intention of repeating himself.  Maybe I should send a link of that interview to Philip Roth although I doubt he will get the hint.  Sooooooo concerned with his dying sexuality, as only a man can be.

Anyhow, back to Jonathan Frannzen.  See if he manages to clinch the deal with "Freedom".  Judging by the first 50 pages, it should have been called "Coercion" (which would have matched "Corrections" much closer.
