Sorts of Things That Happened to Me Today

Here’s a list of stuff that happened today:

• I mooshed cornbread in between my fingers until it turned grey.  This also works rather well with sushi rice, french bread, and the inside of bagels.  Anything doughy or really squishy works well.

• I shoved the remainder of the cornbread into a thermos of chicken soup and ate it.

• I watched a guy yelling and raising a fork.  Multiple people responded with their forks.

• I slipped and fell after running through the halls after the science teacher tricked me into believing that I was late for class after the first bell rang.

• I attempted to work with an awful computer.

• I stared at random people, making weird expressions.

• I wrote down a poem and had to re-break the lines so that it actually was a pantoum.  But then it kind of died.

• I left my thermos in the science teacher’s room and had to run back and get it.

• I tried to catch up with some people to try and tell them that telling the science teacher that it was his fault that I’d been in the hospital after falling after running to try to get to my next class wouldn’t work.

• I gave up doing the previous thing.

• I got ‘Surfing USA’ stuck in my head.

• I watched the new Steven Universe and my brain fell out of my body and rolled away.

• I watched the new Adventure Time and my brain had to roll back into my head to roll out again.

• I gesticulated forcefully, waving chopsticks, talking loudly as rice fell out of my mouth and onto my shirt.  It got stuck to it until I picked it off.

• I thought about putting together a photo story.

• I thought about all the comic book and cartoon characters I have ever falling in love with. (Want a list? Um… Johnny from Maple Town Story, Lapis Lazuli from Steven Universe, Larisa and Cloud from Sandra and Woo ( etc.)

• I began to seriously question my sanity.

Thanks you!



P.P.S. Larisa is insane.

Why Dark Is Evil

Why, in books, is dark or black the bad guys and white or light the good guys?

The answer seems simple: Humans are diurnal.  Thus, they cannot see at night.  And, seeing as they fear the unknown, they become agitated when they can’t see what’s happening.

Is there a predator in the area?  Is it going to get me?  Can I see it?

That way, fears escalated into a sort of albus/nigrum relationship, which turned into ‘black is evil, white is good.’  According to my theory, the ‘evil’ may have, in fact, been any color, only it was dark, and the human could not see him.  Something jet black may not be as menacing in daylight, but it still persists.

So why black and white?  Because, since darkness is evil, then all things evil are dark?  The real answer is also simple:

Humans are strange.

And I am strange for a human.  Does that make me ‘normal’?  But the ‘norm’ tends to apply to the majority, right?  Not necessarily.    The ‘normal’ ones are the people with more power.  Sometimes.  Sometimes it is the majority, and sometimes it is the people with the most power, and sometimes it is whoever, whichever group of people, claims to be ‘normal’ and oppresses the other group of people.  The ‘minority’.  The ‘weird’.

The ‘wrong.’

You can’t keep everyone happy at once, unless you used some sort of a drug or something to brainwash them.  But there is a difference between being unhappy and being treated poorly.

Do other people think like this?  Do most people have the urge to be constantly figuring stuff out, putting things together, moving from thought to thought at a speed much faster than talking, so fast that you confuse whoever you are talking to with your apparently random and irrelevant thoughts when it all made sense in your head?

Is your train of thought a bullet train?

I asked some of my sock monkeys about it.  Mivsie wasn’t sure, but Dr. SquiggleEyes and Sock Monkey almost agreed:

“Thoughts come and go out of this ol’ noggin so quickly that if you tried to catch them… um… um… wait a second… Oh well, I forgot.  Say, have you ever worn an underwear hat?” was Dr. SquiggleEyes’ response.

“Thoughts.  I have thoughts.  And I think them!  Is that what you mean?” asked Sock Monkey.

Maisy-Amaia said, though, “I am not human.  So I would not know.”

I suppose this only applies to humans, then?  I wonder what monkeys think about…

“How healthy eating nothing but instant ramen and frozen pizza is.” says Mivsie, opening her tiny fridge in her college dorm.

I guess so.
