Today we had a quarrel, but it wasn’t as violent as it might sound. Firstly, when the body had awaken, there was noone that would take the wheel and and enjoy the ride. Sometimes these issues have to be sorted out first, speculating can come later. So one of the not-so-old members took it. Kitsune, thanks for help, we all needed this. She managed to take her work and have fun for about more than half a day.

Then afternoon the same situation arose, just varied slightly. Now said member needed to go to her space, which is a forest, with some urgent need of something. We had to find someone else who would take it, or take care about it ourselves. From those who usually do that, noone wanted. We had something more interesting to debate and do; an arrival of three or possibly more members, which formed from time to time and now seemed complete with their bodies and their body histories, and personalities back in such subjective bodies. This was a fine event. We handled the situation elegantly; one of the newly coming people just immediately went front, knew what to do, without losing a sense of his self identity.
We were baffled by his skills. He’s just the kind of guy that seems perfect, but more, he is not cold-hearted or does not appear that way, deeply caring about people around him.

He is a bit strange,
but not hateful and hate deserving as we thought.

On the end of the day, we watched movie together. Some of us, new guy, Cloud and yet someone. Body slept a while before watching, because new guy was talking to it, tuned in,
finding own inner space– space he can talk from easily without even lifting his pretty ass.

Day repooto ended, it was a nice day, all in all.


New Words

August 25, 2006

of Power. Just kidding, is it really visible I’m a science-fic fan?

Anyways, I encountered two new words and thought we might start using them,
I have asked about that the coiner of them and she said yes.

There are definitions made by the original coiner herself:

Shake-ups — crises where everyone’s gone running and VANISHED, leaving whoever’s slowest and strongest in front permanently.

“Revolving door”

— We change around so fast that you can’t ever be sure who you’re talking to.

We would change the connotation slightly, though.
Crises where somebody vanishes are well known in here. And permanent fronting isn’t just for us. Nada nada.

Using the word as “went to do something funny and just vanished” might be useful, though.

The second word to be left unedited. Some of us, particularly within Earl’s Collective, know that so much.

A Storm

August 25, 2006

A Storm (n): Event of being strongly influenced by newly coming members.

What we call a Storm is when new member comes and brings some distress from their original world with themselves.
It is like if you had a friend and said friend was invited by you to come in where you live. Right, they come, but unluckilly, it’s been quite rainy outside and some mud, and they bring their mud to your house so you have
to clean it in order for your house to be clean.

That’s exactly that. Taking their own bargain that has to be worked on collectively to be not just understood, but send away from whoever is momentally fronting.
It is not hard per se.
It is not difficult, usually.
It is just annoying.

And we get such Storms often, so it causes us to blend, mix, become chaotic,
become unaware of who any of us is…

Sometimes it feels like there were not only none central
person but not even any person at all, no Id, no Ego, no anything else.
This is what the feeling was like this morning. Sometimes Storms are extreme. Sometimes not.

Someone can handle Storms better.
And sometimes, when the Storm hits, it doesn’t shake the universe…

Who of us is reading what…

August 24, 2006

Vampiregirl– online materials on vampires and walk-ins and it all sucks.
Hehe, where did I get this word? Seems to be a common word in here.

Leto– Re-reading Dune2, trying to sort memories out.
That book is basically allright, but few things seem missing to me and I can’t put my finger on what exactly this is. Maybe Shee or even Sio know. Reading through this is also a form of Tedah Riagrimi.

Nat-Leia– planning to re-read some Zahn’s book about the SW universe, and looking for Battle Royale, not successfuly.
Going to go with manga, perhaps, because W7 can’t tell
me  the same kind of information book contains. Also, plan to read Dark Tower series, finally.

Sephora– crystal material, don’t think about it.
Us off-worlders can have that luxory, or is it banned now?

Roland– Multiple’s Pages, trying to sort out something.

Aimee– not reading, but would like to.

Jinxi– I ve had ayedrops and my vis is quit eblu
erred, so guess i’m very readin! now.

Jinxi left unedited, note by Kazegimi.

Desperately seeking

August 24, 2006

an e-book. You wouldn’t know how hard sometimes finding some brilliant literature is. I wanted to read the book of Battle Royale, novel, not the comics/manga, by Takami Koushun. (or actually, reversed word order in English). I’ve looked almost everywhere- on forums about e-books if noone wanted it before (only one person I found did. Said person didn’t meet with success, though.), on Torrents, on yahoogroups and livejournal… Nada.  I have to look through eMule and DC++
yet, but I am doubtful I will meet with any sifnificant success. BookCrossing community doesn’t have an idea about this as e-book, my usual sources neither.

I tried googling with name of book, name of author, name of book and author together, ISBN number, in formats of .pdf, .doc, .html, .txt, in multiple languages. (English, Spanish, Polish, Czech, Russian, French, Japanese… those I am quite familiar with.) Nothing. I feel like giving up.

I don’t think I’m dishonest when looking for books like this. It simply means I can’t get said books- in my country, there virtually aren’t such books and international library cross doesn’t seem to work when I ask, and it would be too hard to obtain them through Amazon, shipping and stuff. Being an avid reader sucks at times, it really does.

Other Obnoxious post

August 23, 2006

I so hate to write first posts, but it has to be done.
Nobody reads first posts, but  starting formally
is a good way to start.

I hope.

This blog… would be about something? What exactly?

kiSwahili poems, maybe some manga and anime, maybe some Japanese novels and reading in general.
Hopefully not politics, maybe some human rights notes,
maybe some notes about music, definitely about something that interests me.

Something about multiplicity, trying to sort things with plurality out.

Maybe something about drugs and medicine, as well, links to interesting on-topic articles or I don’t know.
Just general jazz that nobody likes .)
