Internet Schitsophrenia

January 10th, 2005

My Generation is often refered to as the N-Gen, as in the “Network” or “Now” generation. I suppose that’s true. We are used to having things on-demand. If I’m watching a TV show and the commercials come on, I can’t even stand to put the mute on and wait through the break. I just change to another show that I’ll be watching at the same time. It’s normal for me to, in the middle of reading something or going about my day, suddenly wonder what a term means, or a question about something, and go to the nearest unused computer and google it. I used to be on and off the computer in less than five minutes, but nowadays, I’ll be online, and when I find what I’m looking for, I’ll then notice something else worth reading, and then something else, and so on, on completely random subjects. Imagine if I did that in a library, in real life. I’d go in, read to sentences from a book, drop the book, and run over to the other side of the library and repeat the sequence. I’d be regarded as a schizophrenic!

Saturday Afternoon Poetry

January 8th, 2005

If this poem is bad, it’s because it was written in about ten minutes after a sudden break in boredom.
Nothing
Our universe is made of nothing,
Where not a thing exists.
And what there is is all spread out
like drops in foggy mists.
Yet being nothing, it must be something,
Though something can’t be nothing.
The confusion caused by this must show
Our own brain’s vacuous stuffing.
So let’s crawl out of our atomic caves,
And the vacuums of space,
To be relieved we are not nothing,
With nothing in our place!

Fools on the Web

January 5th, 2005

Here are too disturbing/unsettling things I’ve found on the web about really right wing people.
First of all: Mediamatters.org
Anti-canadianism. I can’t believe that people actually think this. “If it weren’t for the US Canada would have been invaded by Norway.” We don’t have a military because we can’t afford it, and we have nothing that we need protection against. “Dog sledding”? Yeah, I wish I had a dogsled. It sure would help me cross that frozen tundra to get to school. Carolyn Parrish, the MP interviewed, is a bit crazy, but CNN shouldn’t take that as our government hates America.
Secondly: Lambuel and Friends How dare they use my favourite animal to spread fear of Atheists and discourage rational thinking! Honestly, this site is so scary I can’t tell if it’s real or not. Their alteration of the flag and the “Creation Science Fair” are funny, but if this is meant to be serious it’s pretty scary.
On another note, in a month less two days I will be sixteen.

Last day

January 3rd, 2005

Last night I dreamt that my friend Gwen and I found a baby in the student counsel’s sofa. We named it Arthur.
Today is the last day of Christmas break. It hardly seemed worthwhile.

From My Subconscious…

January 2nd, 2005

Last night I had three very interesting dreams. My dreams are quite frequent and fairly vivid, but I seldom write them down, other than bugging my mother by recounting them the next morning.
The First Dream:
I was living at the house of some relative of my friend Danielle, on Prince Edward Island. The relative refused to do any dishes, when she ran out of clean dishes she’d buy another set. She had a kitchen absolutely packed with dirty dishes, and the terms of my staying in her house was that I had to clean and get rid of all the dishes. It was the summertime, and Danielle and I decided to take a ride on a humungous tire swing in the pack yard. The swing went up and up exponentially, as if it were attached to the tree by a bungee cord. From above, we could see all the way to Nova Scotia. Then Danielle commented that we were a bit too high, so we kicked and got the swing to go back down to the tree in a graceful descent.
The Second Dream:
I found myself in a McDonald’s, and I was trying to decide what to order. The only good thing on the menu was a pasta for 50$. They also had combos based on the most important news stories of the past year, ex: The Sudan Combo, Enron Combo, Tsunami Combo, Election Combo, etc. When they told me they didn’t have such a thing as a Small Combo, I started singing and dancing in full broadway flair on the McDonald’s floor about how they were going to make everyone obese, destroy the world and steal twenty years from our lifespan.
The Third Dream:
I was kidnapped by Spanish pirates for ten years. When I was finally returned to my family, I could remember nothing of the event, but I had somehow learned how to speak Spanish. I was reciting Spanish words when I woke up.
