Sometimes I think you use a speech bubble when you SHOULD be using a thought...– From somewhere on here, kinda. (It was a shared post in my GReader and I can’t find the actual post!)
A and B
I had a dream last night in which the world was made up of two types of people. A people could do something to B people but I never quite figured out what it was and it is hard to conceive what it might be considering that B people instantly obliterated A people by a single touch.

I miss waking up in the mornings to email and music from him.

I’ve been reading some classics lately thanks to the Gutenberg Project. I’ve read Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice as well as several short works from Philip K. Dick and Stephen Marlowe.
