a ghost.. a real ghost.. has no need to die.. what is he except a being without access to the universe that he has not yet managed to forget?

the box of bees is done.. trapdoor down right..
(i used my own captured yellow jackets! no beneficial bees were harmed in the making of this installation.. :) )

ghost

latest news is tim burton is going to redo alice in wonderland with johnny depp as the mad hatter!!!
still undecided whether to do it with actors or cg/voices? although i prefer the first choice, undoubtedly he will choose the second and thrill disney with the merchandising possibilities! think of the toys/games!!!
i may have to make a trip home when it comes out and buy another hatter tophat at disneyland for my collection?
my favorite hatter was played by peter cook in the early b&w victorian style bbc production..
he seemed quite happily insane to me.. :D
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrTfEk2P9nw
wish someone had youtubed the trial scene..
ghost

thumper

hey ghost, sorry your in migraine hell again. your bee boxes are brill. such a great idea. im still ill, just cant shake it. see you over on the board once your feeling up to it. hugs thumper X

ghost

sorry you are still sick :(
hope your son stays well? i've decided to start naming my migraines the way they do hurricanes.. this one's ariel (thanks, sylvia!) :o

i've become so ocd it's sad.. was watching a tv show recently about how howard hughes' injury in a plane crash caused damage to the frontal area of his brain that controls 'error detection' and set off his voracious ocd.. geez, although with me it just runs in my family (me, my son, sisters, etc..) it is the same thing.. error detection malfunction driving me outta my mind because i can't take my pain meds without freaking out over and over.. i can't trust anything! :(
i need help man..
god how i need help..
but not drugs.
if i'm gonna be sick anyway i figure i choose my own disease.. not some drugs to bandaid/mask/hide the problem and manage me out of existence.. hehe..
healing would be great!
but haha.. no one is selling that..
besides, i'm too broke now in every way.
one unhappy ghost

thumper

hey ghost, :(
great name for a migraine, Ariel, is one of the archangels and is the over seer of nature.
the pain of a migraine is hell, sorry you dont trust anything to make it better. sending a huge hug, wrapped in a faux fur blanket.
thumper X

ghost

thanks,
i thought ariel was going to be nice? haha..
day 10 and the worst she has been..
that's it i'm throwing all her stuff out on the front lawn..
get outta my head, beast!
:/

ghost

after tylenol and a hot cloth on my head and a wasted weekend (not the good kind.. hehe..) ariel had finally gone..
and then i had to lean way down to retrieve one of our kitties from under the china cabinet and i felt her slam right back into my left temple with a vengeance and start all over!!!!!!!!!!!

but now at last after 10 days she seems to be gone finally.. hopefully..
*looks around furtively*

sh! don't tell her you saw me..

tmj/tmd has made my teeth so sensitive to hot/cold/pressure/air.. i have bought like 5 different toothbrushes trying to get a soft one and now am having to use a child's 'hello kitty' one.. haha.. toxic picked it out..
and rather than a nightguard for when i'm sleeping i actually bought a cheap glow-in-the-dark blue pacifier/binky just like the ravers use since ecstasy causes bad tmj too..
(it'll probably just fall out and end up covered in cat hair, but i'll try anything to ease this agony.. i can barely eat/drink these days..)
:(

ghost/toxic

ghost

venturing out into the world proved too much for a shut-in like me.. despite opening doors with tissues i got infected out in the germpool.. now i'm stuck in my cumfy chair sick playing morrowind..

but not before putting up pix of our latest hike & baby raccons! see album up left..

souptime..
ghost

p.s.
our halloween store opened & toxic has already done her shopping :D

ghost

i'm still sick sick sick.

i'd fling myself off the wagon though for a bottle of this:

man.. just when i thought the plague was leaving me my lungs started closing up and i can't breathe..
:(
my son caught it too..
probably from sharing the game controller.. hehe..
now i've got migraine 'callalily' on top too.. 'bastet' was nice to me and only lasted 2 days, so i'm hoping i'll catch a break this time too? (2 days so far and kinda weak..)

so i completed the vampire quests in morrowind and took the cure since i could not trade/train or speak to others or go out in daylight at all.. so now i've sold all my plunder and i'm filthy rich.. enchanted some good weapons and named them:

splintered lament - an adamantine shortsword with lightning/shock power..

bleed for me - a very brutal little jagged metallic red daedric dagger.. one slash leaves a kind of blood cloud!

IT BURNSSS! - a very powerful daedric staff that does flame damage..

haematomania - a very sharp poison daedric tanto..

such a beautiful autumn day.. wish i could be out in it driving all day to pretty places, but being sick & with the cost of gas.. we're broke.. :/

..back to morrowind

    "oh, you can't help that," said the Cat:
    "we're all mad here.
    i'm mad. you're mad."
    "how do you know i'm mad?" said Alice.
    "you must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
    Alice didn't think that proved it at all;
    however, she went on "and how do you know that you're mad?"
    "to begin with," said the Cat, "a dog's not mad. you grant that?"
    "i suppose so," said Alice.
    "well, then," the Cat went on, "you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased.
    Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.."

ulalume

  • by Edgar Allan Poe

    The skies they were ashen and sober;
    The leaves they were crisped and sere-
    The leaves they were withering and sere;
    It was night in the lonesome October
    Of my most immemorial year;
    It was hard by the dim lake of Auber,
    In the misty mid region of Weir-
    It was down by the dank tarn of Auber,
    In the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir.

    Here once, through an alley Titanic,
    Of cypress, I roamed with my Soul-
    Of cypress, with Psyche, my Soul.
    These were days when my heart was volcanic
    As the scoriac rivers that roll-
    As the lavas that restlessly roll
    Their sulphurous currents down Yaanek
    In the ultimate climes of the pole-
    That groan as they roll down Mount Yaanek
    In the realms of the boreal pole.

    Our talk had been serious and sober,
    But our thoughts they were palsied and sere-
    Our memories were treacherous and sere-
    For we knew not the month was October,
    And we marked not the night of the year-
    (Ah, night of all nights in the year!)
    We noted not the dim lake of Auber-
    (Though once we had journeyed down here),
    Remembered not the dank tarn of Auber,
    Nor the ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir.

    And now, as the night was senescent,
    And star-dials pointed to morn-
    As the star-dials hinted of morn-
    At the end of our path a liquescent
    And nebulous lustre was born,
    Out of which a miraculous crescent
    Arose with a duplicate horn-
    Astarte's bediamonded crescent
    Distinct with its duplicate horn.

    And I said–"She is warmer than Dian:
    She rolls through an ether of sighs-
    She revels in a region of sighs:
    She has seen that the tears are not dry on
    These cheeks, where the worm never dies,
    And has come past the stars of the Lion,
    To point us the path to the skies-
    To the Lethean peace of the skies-
    Come up, in despite of the Lion,
    To shine on us with her bright eyes-
    Come up through the lair of the Lion,
    With love in her luminous eyes."

    But Psyche, uplifting her finger,
    Said–"Sadly this star I mistrust-
    Her pallor I strangely mistrust:-
    Oh, hasten!–oh, let us not linger!
    Oh, fly!–let us fly!–for we must."
    In terror she spoke, letting sink her
    Wings until they trailed in the dust-
    In agony sobbed, letting sink her
    Plumes till they trailed in the dust-
    Till they sorrowfully trailed in the dust.

    I replied–"This is nothing but dreaming:
    Let us on by this tremulous light!
    Let us bathe in this crystalline light!
    Its Sybilic splendor is beaming
    With Hope and in Beauty to-night:-
    See!–it flickers up the sky through the night!
    Ah, we safely may trust to its gleaming,
    And be sure it will lead us aright-
    We safely may trust to a gleaming
    That cannot but guide us aright,
    Since it flickers up to Heaven through the night."

    Thus I pacified Psyche and kissed her,
    And tempted her out of her gloom-
    And conquered her scruples and gloom;
    And we passed to the end of the vista,
    But were stopped by the door of a tomb-
    By the door of a legended tomb;
    And I said–"What is written, sweet sister,
    On the door of this legended tomb?"
    She replied–"Ulalume–Ulalume-
    'Tis the vault of thy lost Ulalume!"

    Then my heart it grew ashen and sober
    As the leaves that were crisped and sere-
    As the leaves that were withering and sere-
    And I cried–"It was surely October
    On this very night of last year
    That I journeyed–I journeyed down here-
    That I brought a dread burden down here-
    On this night of all nights in the year,
    Ah, what demon has tempted me here?
    Well I know, now, this dim lake of Auber-
    This misty mid region of Weir-
    Well I know, now, this dank tarn of Auber,
    This ghoul-haunted woodland of Weir."

    Said we then, the two then,
    "Ah, can it have been
    That the woodlandish ghouls,
    The pitiful, the merciful ghouls,
    To bar up our way and to ban it
    From the secret that lies in these wolds,
    From the thing that lies hidden in these wolds,
    Have drawn up the spectre of a planet
    From the limbo of lunary souls,
    This sinfully scintillant planet
    From the Hell of the planetary souls..."
