    QOTD, V.30 (V's version)

    Hopefully Medusa doesn't lynch me for this, but let's get this going again!

    In the past people were buried with the items they would need in the afterlife, what would you want buried with you so you could use it in the afterlife?
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    Hot Pickle!

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    A duffel bag with:

    A change of clothes
    A charged phone with certain files on it and a portable charger
    2 to three knives
    A specific amulet or two
    Certain hardcopy books, it'd take time for me to pick which ones
    A pistol and some ammo
    Food
    2 to 3 water bottles
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Yay, I'd been thinking about starting it again too.

    Ehm. A lot of books. Endless supply of ice cream. A computer with Wi-Fi and a Netflix subscription. My camera. I don't really know what else

    A cat for guidance. LOTS of pizza, incense and flowers and music.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Trust lost,is trust never regained.

    I'm going to assume one thing: that if I'm dead, I no longer will need to eat, sleep, or drink.

    I'd want to be buried with a bag, containing:
    - two gold coins to pay the ferryman (in the off-chance this happens to occur)
    - a long knife/short sword, and my bow and quiver
    - a large notebook and an assortment of pencils and ink to record my findings
    - a bottle of good mezcal, for bribes and for remembrance
    - some incense, and other offerings to the gods
    - something to remind me, that once, I was loved.

    I once cut my hand while peeling an orange. I cut myself on the peel... I don't even know how I managed that, but I did.

    I burned my finger trying to test the brake pads/metal disk thing right after I stopped driving (I know just enough car stuff to get myself in trouble). The whole tip of my finger was a blister...

    I wanted to see what would happen if I melted a toothbrush with a lighter. The answer is: burning hot plastic will scar you for life.
