remember what she does when you're asleep

Today, I practiced Not Wanting things.

It worked really well — right up until lunch, when I decidedly did not want what I had brought, but equally did not want to shell out money for something else. QUANDARY. Apathy forced me to eat the lunch I had brought, albeit with much grumbling about the sub-par situation.1

In other news, Tess talks here of her and my participation in the freeze frame project, which I link you to because it's easier than telling the story again myself. The first photo of us has shown up online: here you can see me gawking at Postscripts #18 while Tess gawks at Shadow Queen. (The reading of the books was Tess's brilliant idea. She is clearly a marketing genius. Everyone who came near wanted to know what we were reading. Quite a few went beyond gawking at the covers of the book and started reading over my shoulder. In fact, close as that fellow was standing, he was perhaps the least obtrusive of the folks that hovered around us.)

I suppose the presence of me in this photo does put paid to the theory that I have the vampire-like ability of not appearing on film, however. Which is a touch sad. I was kinda hopeful I could hone that and never have to worry about being photographed again.

Oh, and yeah — I'll be watching Ponyo:

  1. Work laid on gourmet pizza for lunch yesterday. Now I am discontent with anything I can muster up and drag in for myself. []

    Fishies! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hellyes.

    (All things considered, I am rather glad you are not, in fact, a vampire.)

    (Because you fail at feeding yourself properly as a human, and humans can eat everything. If you were actually a vampire, I'm pretty sure you would have expired by now. The first vampire to succumb to malnutrition.)

    Oh, long ago. Drinking blood? Ick! It would be all warm and … glicky. I would be the dead undead by now, for sure.

  3. @Ben: it is cool, isn't it? I wasn't even aware of it happening, at the time. Someone else took a photo of Tess (and the back of my head) that I want to turn up – how else will we get the full effect of a girl sucking on a churro while reading a book?

    @Murasaki Claire: No problems! Thanks for the photo ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Melbourne is a great city in which to practice Not Wanting Things, as there are so many (delicious, gorgeous) things to want. I've definitely had the grumble filled sandwich of 'I'll have what she's having' before today. ๐Ÿ™‚
