The unexpected
Things sometimes happen that are random and completely unexpected as we move through our lives. The people I know and call "friends" are all intelligent, and like myself, they try to be aware of everything that's going on around them. Despite our best efforts, we are sometimes caught by surprise by the world around us. Events unfold that are out of our control. Sometimes the things that surprise us are unpleasant and not at all what we want. Sometimes they are incredibly pleasant and, while unexpected, are exactly what we may need (or want, at least on a subconscious level). When we encounter those moments we feel our spirits lifted by them -- with good cause. They're notable events.

These little things are far and few between. When they happen, they should be delighted in. They should be treasured.

I had one of those moments today.

This revelation brought to you by at least eight shots of Maker's Mark.

Okay. Going on about "friends", out of control events, the unexpected in a good way, and eight shots of good stuff... you got laid, didn't you?

*snickers*

Heh heh... no, actually, that is not what happened to inspire this obfuscated little entry. But I can see how it would give that impression.

It was a good guess, though. ^_^

Hee, that's a hell of a compliment. Thanks. :)

I suspect that when I'm stone sober I am too tense from my life and my job to think outside of the rigid mindset that I get locked into during my average workday. After a few drinks I begin to relax and revelations like this come more readily.

a) I'll admit I miss Maker's Mark.

b) Why the hell do you still have an icon JenWolf did? e_e;

art can be enjoyed apart from the artist.

Depends on how many mind-altering drugs one ingests before looking at it. Or, alternatively, classifying it as 'modern art' so it doesn't have to follow the rules of, say, anatomy or fluidity. It can join the ranks of Frat Boys Take A Shit On A Canvas And Call It A Memorial To The Holocaust.

Ah, well... I was speaking more on a theoretical basis than in reference to any particular piece.

I'm a bad person. :(
feren From: feren Date: June 23rd, 2005 12:51 am (UTC) (Link)
If you're bad, what does that make me?
eisenkreis From: eisenkreis Date: June 23rd, 2005 01:15 am (UTC) (Link)
An accomplice.
feren From: feren Date: June 23rd, 2005 01:19 am (UTC) (Link)
And an alibi.
eisenkreis From: eisenkreis Date: June 23rd, 2005 01:24 am (UTC) (Link)
But not the excuse!

Just partly.
feren From: feren Date: June 23rd, 2005 01:26 am (UTC) (Link)
Society is our excuse. I just happen to fill the role of "enabler," as do you.

Give me back my fake ID before I rape your face.

Aww, you say the sweetest things.

No. It's mine now.

Kittywuv?

I have to concur with the others. It sounds very much as though you got laid. However, since you said you were drinking, it brings to mind the string of Budweiser commercials that always had the general famous phrase, however worded: I love you, man. -- Dude, you're not getting my bud.

So, Feren. Did you get -her- bud? ;D Me-ow.

Re: Kittywuv?

You expect me to remember, when I've clearly been drinking? We'll have to check the videotape!

Awww, man! I left the lens cap on... now we'll never know.

It's almost 2 am. I keep re-reading your post and once again note, the afterglow affect is quite clear. What did Ra have to say about all of this?
feren From: feren Date: June 24th, 2005 04:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ra is a perfect gentleman -- he would never tell!
