Overblown Reaction

Sorry about that last post. I've moved it offline for now- maybe I'll host it on my geocities site as a warning for those few gullible people that aren't afraid of things like identity theft, fraud, and the like. I don't know what posessed me to keep talking to the idiot, and my actions were nothing less than stupid.

I think I'll leave it at that.

Phantom Tomorrow.

I still can't wait.

A Strained Smile and a Headache

Funny, it seems like the only times I can post are when I have everything else in the world to do.

Two finals down two to go, not counting my play reading tonight. I can do this, I know I can do this. Hey, if I'm lucky, we may not even get to my play tonight. (Wait, should I really be wishing for that?)

I'm still counting the days until Phantom, and I'll begin counting all over when Les Mis comes to town. It's slated for one week in February- I'm going to get a job to earn the dough by then... even if it's shoveling snow during break. It's excellent. Then again, I'm deeply attatched to it. My mom had the original cast recording on tape, and I used to sing with it all the time. When my concert choir chose to do a medely for it my junior year, I was ecstatic. The following year we saw it on stage.

To see it again, if for no other reason than to stand at the bottom of the upper balcony and watch the orchestra warming up, to drink in the warm glow of The Fox, and to remember what it was like- would be heaven.

I Think I Just Got Spammed by Homsar...

After my second rock.com account was shut down for no apparent reason, I decided to send e-mails from my other account on care2.com. I sent off the e-mail, and checked my in-box, looking for anything that might have slipped through my spam filter.
I was greeted with, yes, one peice of obligatory "Mortgage your house!" e-mail, and four others: "How's yourself", "Training", "Wakey Wakey", and "Oops...:)"

How do I suspect that these are from that irresistably disjointed entity from Homestar Runner?

Let's take one as an example:


Evening, landlord :)

Joy has this in common with pain, that it robs people of reasonN
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it allN
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passionsN
There are three faithful friends, an old wife, an old dog, and ready moneyN
If you give an audience a chance they will do half your acting for youN
There are no gains without painsN
Love without attachment is lightNLanguage is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they growN The biggest lie on the planet: When I get what I want, I will be happyN

Abandon all hope, you who enter here!
He who is plenteously provided for from within, needs but little from withoutN

A man's own self is his friendN A man's own self is his foeN
Everybody in the world thought we couldn't do itN But we did, dammitN [After winning the America's Cup]
Thought is born of failureN

Objects in pictures should so be arranged as by their very position to tell their own storyN
A good novel tells us the truth about it's hero but a bad novel tells us the truth about its authorN

The war existing between the senses and reasonN
The more corrupt the state, the more lawsN

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in betweenN
Flowers are happy thingsN

What saves a man is to take a stepN Then another stepN
Life is a bridgeN Cross over it, but build no house on itN
Liberty consists in wholesome restraintN
He who forgiveth, and is reconciled unto his enemy, shall receive his reward from God for he loveth not the unjust doersN Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destinationN


Baasi


Now, I am, first of all, nobody's landlord. That's one hell of a greeting... but in Homsarland, it means "Hi, good to see ya" or "Hey, pal".

Second, the repitition of N's that continually happen throughout the letter. Now, normally, he'd actually be extending "AAAAAaaaAAAAaaaa" before or after a phrase. But he's never been completely normal about anything, just vaguely disjointed and repetitive. And then when you think of him saying "Baasi"- well, just add a few other a's in there. You'll feel it.

Third, quotes that have insightful, if used in the correct context, meaning. The way that they are set up, however, with no unifying theme or purpose make them little less than proverbs.

"Abandon all hope, you who enter here!" - Inferno, Dante. Tsch, indeed.

Now I could be completely wrong, but it does make the sender(s?) more forgiveable if not altogeather ignorable. But with monikers such as "Aquinas Q. Nielsen", "Avoided Q. Ban", "Brontosauri S. Damps", and "Artery U. Impungus", you tell me that you wouldn't want to imagine that it could be Homsar, standing in front of a computer, wildly raving about winning the powerball.

A little sidebar reorganization...

I'm apparently behind on my blogs- Shame on me. For example, T beat me to the punch about Breka (Jess' sister) starting a blog here on blogspot. But I figured it was time I put up a few others that I read frequently, too.

Then again, I noticed that my avatar also seemed to be x-ed for some reason... and apparently blogspot users get free "Hello Blogger" accounts. Definately have to look into that. Until then, I'll pray that geocities is going to be kind to my picture. *crosses fingers*
