Every day I fall more and more inlove with my little princess...today she lined up all of her little toy horses in a pattern (tail to tail-muzzle to muzzle) and threw the biggest fit when I tried to alter their form... sheesh... I have a feeling she is going to be JUST like her dad...and most likely an engineer as well...what am I going to do!?

I’m craving Gustav Klimt. Particularly his painting entitled “the kiss”. I can see a little classical greek, some Byzantine… and even minoan art in his paintings. The thing that I truly love about Klimt is the way he captures raw sexuality, especially that of the female gender. Love and death, good and evil are also present in his work. His form is so eclectic but obvious in theme. I love the temptation in each painting. I could stare at his work for hours…

we’ve all read Shakespeare at some point in our life. Though this time I aspire to read Shakespeare for enjoyment. Shakespeare, being such an acclaimed ‘host for the mind’ and ‘perplexing figure’ must hold intense charisma within his works. High school was the last time I read any of Shakespeare’s work- unfortunately I failed to read the entirety and depended upon the yellow and black guide books by Cliff…

What makes Shakespeare so great? Why don’t we read him for enjoyment? Is Shakespeare reserved for the cerebral and savvy of english lit? Those who encounter him seem to divide amongst love or hate… alas, I begin my quest.

excerpt from my journal…[02.06.05]

“I was absolutely craving a cigarette. My body became a sullen cavity that yearned for a filling. I did not fall prey to my oral fixation, but rather seduced my mouth with the pleasure of Doublemint gum. I caressed my tongue with the soft stick and slid it into my mouth. The flavor teased my taste buds and danced along the curvatures of my teeth. Goosebumps ran up my arms and my palms began to sweat. It was orgasmic, borderline erotisism…”

I am smoke-free and very proud!

My current diversion is a small book entitled “The Square Egg” by “Saki” aka Hector Hugo Munro. This compilation included abstract sketches and related plays. Saki’s Square Egg was introduced into the American society in 1923. The Square Egg is basically that. A square egg. It’s a short story about a boy who uncovers a hen that lays odd shaped eggs. The boy proposes a plan to the Master of the house, illustrating how if he were to breed that hen and cross breed for generations they would eventually have “square eggs.” But much to idiotic and sometimes thin themes, the master disputes this case with the boy. Which demonstrates mans narrow-mindedness to scientific solutions.
In the novel, Saki ridiculed ideals and individuals he despised, and concealed his strong affections for those he enjoyed. His writing is kindly in nature with whimsical humor. Occasionally his loves and fears become visible through the text. I see strong commonalties between Saki’s writings and those of Mark Twain. Both authors have a common taste in deep but abstract themes. Though in Saki’s work he caters to the more extravagant tastes; much into fairytales and fables that ridicule the human race. Saki’s dry but flavorful taste in words and schemes makes him a delight to read.

One of Saki’s plays; The Watched Pot is extremely hilarious. The Watched Pot tells a story of a household of women who are all trying to marry the same man. Each woman fights over the placid character with ambiguity and guile. I took great pleasure in Saki’s witty dialogue through out this particular piece. Saki illustrates the sheer idiocy of “women chasing men” and “men’s disgust with easy women”.
