I seem to have an odd habit of meeting people through LiveJournal. (Hi Anna, Andrew, and the throngs of people who never comment!)

Last night I came back from an entire day and most of a night of lab to dreams of Canada (of all places). A bizarre, fictionalized, subtropical Canada where palm trees grow everywhere and mosquitoes sting you everywhere you go and the humidity is so high you can feel the air. More like Thailand than Canada, really, or what Thailand would be were it much richer, much more urban, and populated by descendants of Native Americans and French fur traders, It was a one-week trip, I think, and I was going with a large group of people my age, some who I knew, some who I didn't know. I vaguely remember, with mild disinterest, watching Akshat mow down a bunch of strangers with a machinegun, then steal a car and drive away slowly. (When the police came by moments later and asked me what happened, I told them I had no idea, and somehow I wasn't lying.)

I also remember that our group could only afford one hotel room, but it had a really big bed, so all 30 or 40 of us were crowded underneath the covers, and it was strangely comfortable. Nothing sexual about it, but oddly peaceful--like being a newborn bunny snuggled among the rest of the litter, at peace with its kind.

There's something very soothing about building circuits with DLSim. It's busy work, but it's easy busy work, and once you discover and get used to certain repeating patterns you can work in a state of thoughtless Zen. Also, being able to turn out the lights at the end and watch your wires glow is immensely, immensely satisfying. Hook the circuit up to a clock, set them to a two-second cycle, turn out the lights, and you have an experience as agnostically spiritual as watching traffic lights change in New York at 3 AM. Dizzyingly complex, endlessly repeating webs of light and shadow, on and off and on and off. Gorgeous.

Once I got stuck in a queen size bed between two huge guys. Sadly, it wasn't a dream...

Read the first couple chapters of Moby-Dick if you're into that kind of thing.

Especially the 5-6 chapters where Ishmael is sleeping with Queequeg.

Oh dear lord, another girl aroused by gay men...

Just for my information, what is it about men making out (or more) that's erotic? One of my exes is also aroused by this kind of stuff, but she claims it's different than guys being turned on by lesbians, so...?

I really don't know; I can see why lesbians can be arousing, but as for gay men I'm not sure. Its for sure though that gay men usually are extremely cute and are very good dressers.

How is meeting people through Live Journal odd?

Because it is?

I dunno, I seem to meet people through LJ a lot more than other people meet each other through LJ. Or maybe other people meet each other through LJ and don't tell me about it.

I think people are just hiding it from you.

Also, the government is out to get you.

That thing with me mowing down people with a machine gun was interesting. Thanks for not telling the police about me. :)
