Running Red Lights

I like to run yellow lights.
It's the high I seek in life. I get this magical feeling that I'm seeing things I wouldn't have otherwise seen if I had been stuck at the light. Those few moments right after are the best, the sky, the cars everything is new and something I would have never seen before. Not only that but it pushes your whole world forward, for the rest of my life I'm seeing things 30 seconds (maybe more or less depending on the light) before I would normally see them. My whole life is being lived in the future and it rocks!

Note: I am not under the influence of any substances.

I like to disappear for blocks of time. It makes me seem mysterious.

Hylinn bought a motorcycle way back in June and has been riding it to work ever since he tried to get his brother to teach him how to ride, hit a curb and crashed it. It wasn't anything serious, a sprained wrist and a dented fuel tank. He's since taken a class, passed the test and actually gotten his license.

Last Thursday was the first time I rode with him and it is surreal. Riding in a car, to me, is like being in a bubble. For example, I drive my roommate back and forth to work almost everyday, but I've never actually been there, to all the road in between our apartment and the mall. I've never actually set foot on that stretch of land before in my life and still haven't, but riding a motorcycle down that same stretch of road cements everything in my mind. It takes all the pieces I've seen and only just noticed and affixes them there as touchable, real objects and actual space. Definitely not what I was expecting my first time riding.

I'm not gonna lie, it's scary the first time and probably for awhile after, but I'm not experienced enough to say.

Sounds like me and sex. Badum Chhh.*

*That's supposed to be the bad joke noise, my onomatopoeia skills are rusty.

You can also smell everything, good and bad.

This is also like sex.

Apparently, wearing face paint three days in a row for a majority of the day makes my face unhappy and when my face gets unhappy it gets a weird rash....

Sorry no pictures, it would make your face unhappy and I don't want it to spread.

I've been recovering and being lazy. Just sitting around in the house, watching Law and Order SVU and making pillows.

Proof! That I've actually made something.

It doesn't help that Hylinn got to work from home on Thursday. Which is so much fun!

This is how I found him after I got home from doing something, I can't remember.

I hope this becomes more regular.

*Look at that sweet white balance!

Fun Fact!

I took pictures almost everyday in October. That's pretty sweet.

The Rally

Hylinn and I went to the rally in DC this weekend. Specifically the Rally to Restore Sanity and Keep Fear Alive. We were really far from the stage so it was basically like watching it at home with a horrible view of the television.

But you don't exactly go to a rally for the view, you go for the people.

And there were a lot of people.

Like Ben Franklin.

And druids.

The people on the porta potties.

People with signs.

Ah, taxes everywhere in this bitch!

If you ever have a chance definitely make an effort to get to a rally whatever your political affiliation, they're inspiring.
