I NEEEEEEEEEEEEED A CUP OF TEA!!!!!!!!! [Nov. 10th, 2003|04:22 pm]

[Mood |mellowmellow]
[Music |Rachmaninov : Isle of the Dead]

Past three o' clock,
And a cold frosty morning...evening...
Past three o' clock;
Good morrow, masters all!

Must have been tired. Slept till 4 o'clock. Theatre rehearsals were cancelled. Blame Snoopy and lack of oxygen along with dehydration...if only someone would bring me a cup of tea when I wake...my dad used to when I lived at home...mother had him well-trained...and a cup of tea or coffee is the perfect thing for waking, especially if you have it brought to you...

Me? I have to promise myself that it WILL be warmer upstairs, and brave the icy blast across my bed from my window to make it upstairs where the kitchen and the kettle awaits.


Actually was awake till about 4am last night...went to bed at 2am...but started reading 'Count Zero' by William Gibson. Found it a little confusing to start, but soon got the flow of it...felt a bit like reading 'A Clockwork Orange' for the first time many many years ago...enjoying it now. Will go back and read some before I go to work...hopefully there'll be no mail tonight. Will take it with me.

After that, put on Rachmaninov's Isle of the Dead (a symphonic poem)...and wrote something of my own. Haven't written poetry since 1996...but I liked this effort at least...it came naturally, and sounds satisfying...

Now then, need to go to the shop...have my tea and a cigarette...

Wake up to this chilly evening...it's getting dark already...and I'll be walking in at nine surrounded by exploding fireworks and noise and darkness...

Going home in the dark at 6am too...if it weren't for rehearsals I wouldn't see the sun at all these winter months...time to develop my moontan perhaps??

Pilfered from sirmankey :

Your soul is bound to the White Rose: The

"I've been waiting in the dark for a long
time, shining my beacon of hope through the
shadow. If you see me, don't you hide your
eyes from me."

The White Rose is associated with purity, honor,
and chastity. It is governed by the goddess
Artemis and its sign is The Cross, or Agape.

As a White Rose, you are a person of your word.
You may have a strong moral code, but
regardless of your virtue, you always stay true
to yourself. To you, love is the most pure of
emotional forms and it's just a matter of
waiting for it to bless you. Some people may
say you are too idealistic, but it's only
because you don't want to mess things up.

Your soul is bound to the Rose Petals: The

"'ve come undone and all hopes of mending
me are gone because the pain took my soul.
Can't you see? The only one who can put me
back together again is me."

The Rose Petals are associated with sorrow,
reflection, and wisdom. They are governed by
the goddess Persephone and their sign is The
Teardrop, or Broken Love.

As a Rose Petal, you are always self-reflective and
may be hard on yourself. You probably have
been hurt in the past by other people and can
sometimes distance yourself, as a result. You
don't usually let other get too close to you,
but you are very good at mending your spirits
back together by yourself.

Hello, DasObs, yes, that looks like a fair assessment, from what I know of you.

Count Zero is pretty good, are you reading all three of those books? Neuromancer, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive. His version of some sort of internet is much more romantic than this thing we're sat on right now, although it's probably harder for Gibson's characters to find a good recipe for veggie curry.

I pinched Count Zero from the work 'library'...roughly translates as one sorry shelf of self-awareness books, dire fantasy and mills and boon...

I did have a Joseph Conrad biography, but I lent it to sweaty dan and haven't seen it since...

Will read the rest if I enjoy this one...

You know my frustration with finding time to read novels, and William Gibson is one I wish I could curl up with. I have Neuromancer and Count Zero; I started the latter and was enjoying it immensely when work piled up, and I was forced to put it down. I want to read The Difference Engine--fascinating idea, this so-called "steampunk."

I did read most of the short stories in Burning Chrome, and it's a consistently good anthology. The best is "The Gernsback Continuum," which may not explicitly contain cyberpunk elements but may perhaps be read as a manifesto of what Gibson and company were reacting against. Highly recommended!
