Dear Internet,

Dear Internet,

I'm thankful for you because even after coming home after a long day at a menial job, and being surly because I don't have a car to go to a fun opening in, you still make me laugh and realize how good I've actually got it.


PS, I'm sorry for saying that you're just a series of tubes.

Lying Lost.

"Brief , broken, often painful as their actual meetings had been what with his absences and interruptions [...] the effect of them on his life was immeasurable. There was a mystery about it. You were given a sharp, acute, uncomfortable grain -- the actual meeting; horribly painful as often as not; yet in absence, in the most unlikely places, it would flower out, open, shed its scent, let you touch, taste, look about you, get the whole feel of it and understanding after years of lying lost."

[said Peter in Mrs. Dalloway]
