the day so far:

i got to see the inside of my hand!!! bones! there is nothing wrong with it. it is a cysty thing or something. i have to uh, hope it goes away.

lots and lots and lots of LJ comments and email writing and frustration and tears in many directions. all to the good, i hope.

two plans of action for ikea, one twice the cost of the other, but more attractive. i really wish someone would go with me to order everything. i promised jack he wouldn't have to.

i have packed: NOTHING. i SUCK. aigh.

Re: When ya goin'?
It has to happen, I figger, either: tomorrow, wednesday late afternoon/evening, or sometime next weekend. I hate the idea of going on a weekend but I gots no choice.

College Park indeed!

I already have a list of everything I want, and few decisions to make.

I can also help pack in exchange for food.

Yay. This would be good! I hope to be packing tomorrow (if I am not at Ikea) and then evenings this week... well basically every spare moment.

I once had a cyst in my hand, on the bone, just like yours. It was just carpal tunnel syndrome, but since it hurt to lay on my hand, and since it got in the way of practicing the clarinet - which everyone knows is, to this day, my true passion - there was surgery. It was minor, and I was actually awake during it, and asking all sorts of questions. I tried to look at the surgery, but the doctor gently pushed my head to the other side. I wore a cast for a week and a half, and you can still see the scar on the back of my hand. Haven't I ever shown it to you? I usually say the scar came from a knife fight, or from when I was playing roulette once.

Ikea. Haven't any of you watched Fight Club?

Hrm... Carpal tunnel didn't even pass the doctor's lips. I hope this does not end with someone opening up my hand... that would freak me right out.... but now that you mention it, no! I never once saw your scar.

Fight Club:
Yeah, I really didn't like that movie much.

Fight Club
Why not??

Re: Fight Club
I have never understood what there is to like about it. Oh yay, an anti-consumerist message... couched in a bunch of masculist bullshit. Maybe I'm just too stupid to get it.

As if in answer to my questions about the sincerity of whatever cracked version of a message this film/book is supposed to be putting forward, check it out, there's a video game!

Maybe it's just that I don't like people solving their "problems" with violence, or watching violence, or whatever. In some moods I'm less critical of this film but I guess I'm kind of shocked that I'm just expected to like it.

Re: Fight Club
First of all, if you start dissing video games, this is coming to blows.

Number two, I think that's a fine reason to dislike Fight Club. Most of the feminist types that I meet who don't like Fight Club just kind of dismiss it by saying, "It's misogynist," and leave it at that. Or, I think maybe some of them have explained it to me, and then I wasn't impressed and forgot about it. At any rate this Palaniuk guy is a hack writer, but Brad Pitt and Ed Norton rule.

Re: Fight Club
I wasn't dissing video games in general. I was just giggling at the idea of this particular film/book being made into a video game.

I don't necessarily think the film is misogynist. I just am uninterested in watching macho posturing, no matter the context, and I think it misses its mark a little bit, from everything I've heard in regards to its "mark".

I appreciated (can't really say "enjoyed" about this film_ Norton's performance in American History X.

I have a scar on my head which I tell people is from a falling timber that hit me in the head while I was rescuing kittens from a burning orphanage.

Re: ...
I like that story better.

Re: ...
You've reached the first level, making up stories about your scar. Now you're ready to take it to the next level. Craft a grander story, one singular enough to remain pleasing to you for some time, and take your scar to the level of personal mythology. It's good stuff.

Seeing the inside of oneself is pretty cool, huh?
Sep. 4th, 2004 01:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I wish I could have got a scan!!
