I am so sick of Valentine's day. I get to hear about how my friends are being spoiled with candy and flowers... or spoiling with candy and flowers and it makes me feel somewhere between sad and annoyed or irked or whatever other word fits.

I suppose I have no right to complain since I don't really even celebrate Valentine's day in the first place... but I really want something sweet in my life... someone special. Which I could probably have if I were willing to make any sort of an effort, but then there's that whole piece of my personality that's really REALLY shy.

I got to read a hillarious scene in playwriting today. It was a "forbidden love" scene a la Romeo and Juliet except a bit happier. It was so sappy that it was delightful... and I could be all sighing and happy and off in la-la land. Which was great. I enjoyed it. And my scene (more or less about a guy who finds out that his girlfriend is in the business of soul-trading) went over well, so I've been given freedom to start working with it and expand on it. Although I won't touch it until Sunday at the earliest of course because my life is just insane like that. Eesh. I want this week to be over.

I really want to email someone and I should just go ahead and do it, but I've no idea whatsoever what to say and it would probably just be all weird anyway so maybe I just won't. Any ideas, D.S.?

I saw Chocolat tonight, courtesy of FAB (which I know will annoy another person because I think I was supposed to go to a spaghetti dinner/puppet thing tonight and I didn't... but oh well) and it is a lovely movie. Very cute and well done, I think... I hope it wins Best Picture. Although I haven't seen any of the other nominees. Ugh. Another year where I feel no need to watch the Academy Awards... I don't particularly care for any of the nominations... except the ones for Billy Elliot, The Grinch, Chocolat and O Borther, Where Art Thou? I don't understand how Cast Away got nominated for best Sound, but hey, whatever. Maybe it was the whale sounds or something. But anyway. Chocolat was good and I recommend it to everyone. Unless you are the sort who really dislikes movies that are kind of sappy and sweet. Because the movie was just that. It had messages but it didn't beat them into your head or anything like that and that was very comfortable for me. I liked it.

My mommy is coming over Spring Break this makes me happy.

Go for it! These three words apply to life in general.

"Sooner strangle an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires." --William Blake "Why *not* go out on a limb? That's where the fruit is." --Mark Twain The things we regret are not the things we did, but the things we didn't do. --a common maxim Be yourself. Ramble, joke, be witty, be offbeat, and thus irresistibly charming. Engage a problem of philosophy. Express opinions. Ask general questions about life that few think of asking. Mention books you've enjoyed or movies that you've liked. He is a devout Catholic and adores science; theater attracts him. Just express what's in your mind, fill it with your spirit, and have fun with it. What's life if you don't do risky crazy things from time to time? (As long as you're not risking life or health, obviously.) Love, D.S. P.S. I wrote R. a similar sort of "Me rambling" e-mail, which started out commenting on a book I'd read, but wandered into digressions on theology, quotes from good poetry, etc. He thought it was such a good letter that he's been working on "a worthy reply" for over a week now!

Okay. You win. Now my only question is what on earth you're doing up and online at 2:30 am. Probably the same thing as me, but that's okay. :-)

And I'm still scared. Why, I am not sure, but... one never knows. And I think rambling and being myself I can do... asking profound questions about life... that I'm not so sure about. ;-P

Good luck with R.
