:: Fever Dreams ::
Small claustrophobic whitewall tunnells and tubal staircases, and mothers feeding yogurt to babies with full heads of hair and full sets of teeth in their mouths.
And then later, i was dialing a car service phone number, and mixed up the last two digits, and accidentally got the home of my ex-boyfriend's family, the Tekippes, on the line. The Tekippes were now living in Normal, Illinois. And were working on a film. And i came to understand that each member of the family, including all 3 of ex-boyfriend-TimTekippe's siblings: Ted, Michelle and Cyndi, had just earned $600,000 a piece working on the sets of a film being made there. In Normal, Illinois.
Then i woke up.
Update:: I've just had my first ever-shot of Wheatgrass. In efforts towards a miraculously recovery, i ordered a shot of the densely green stuff. Served in a plastic mini-shot glass, i trepidatiously sipped, expecting horrible bitter teeth-curling astringentness. Instead, i experienced zesty, tangy, lightness, almost lime-like refreshing flavor. I like it. It's definitely green. Hearing stories of people puking when they first introduce the stuff to their system, i was wary, yet gulped it down. Delicious. And i know it's nutritous [to quote jack keroac in On The Road referring not to wheatgrass, but to apple pie] Allegedly a great soother of sore throats, i let it linger in my throat as i swallowed slowly. C'est tout. Let the healing begin.

um, I wrote a rap:
. . . . . . . . . . .
Feel bad for me now, please. Sneezing. Oh the sneezing. Throat like gravel. achy. hurty. Really. I'm serious.
So there's not much else to do but computerize [love this DSL : I made the Colorado Slide Show friday night] and watch this Wim Wenders movie Lisbon Story which seems good, so far. Mom says drink hot lemon, ginger, honey drink, Rene-Claude says rub Tiger Balm, er Le Balm du Tigre, on the bottoms of my feet. Okay. Did that. Where is the relief? Throat so very sore. Ahem, do i have your sympathy yet? That's all i want. And your respect and love and homemade soup.
I dont have much else to do but wander around the apt. taking self-portraits.

A few definitions to help you with your snowboarding lingo as you peruse The grainy, i-need-a-real-camera SNOWBOARDING SLIDE SHOW:
Get Your Soak On: [verb] : To sit in hot tub, and soak. ("After a day of boarding, I'm so ready to get my soak on.")
Jillwhacked: [adj] When a girl has fallen from her snowboard and landed on her arse so hard that her very inner constitution --from teeth to tailbone-- feels like it might be permanently rearranged. (Named after the freestyle park at Keystone: The Jackwhacker).
Now, after that slideshow of course, may i suggest you get your hardac on? He's got 10,000 photos (almost) of everything you've ever not wanted to see captured on film...
