kaskarkaminski ....There was to be no thing as shop
talk, no such thing as my interest, and his interest. What one of us took seriously, both ought to be able to take seriously, and our relationship was first on the list,over any career, or ambition, or anything else. He told me that he would expect me to make the
same heavy demands on myself and on him
that he made on himself and would make
on me, and that they always had to be
the same demands."

Me, whom the plainest woman would despise...
Whom should i love?
Why--of course--it must be the woman in the world most beautiful"

misstree Across the street beyond the inching wall of traffic was a movie theater painted pink to look like flesh. It grew weightless from the incandescent white sidewalk like a fantastic attraction in a pornographic Disneyland. The rose-colored some looked organic and alive, like an obscene monument fahioned from paper-mache by an evil child into a gigantic replication of the flushed and abused buttocks of an abused infant. The pink flesh-paint had peeled back in bed-sized sheets, revealing the previous color to have been a deep leperous yellow, like a gaudy underlayer of pus working beneath bubbling, tender skin. The dome teamed a rainbow of glittering gold-pink hues that arced above it, made luminous by the heat as they mixed with the sifting brown smog. he marquee was a sideways monolith tiled with a mouthful of dull plastic teeth, ajar as if smashed by a fist. Spelled out in candy0red building-block letters were the attractions offered inside: "Triple Feature! 24 Hours!... Body To BOdy... The Autopsy Feast... Lubejobber... Purified Air! Air Conditioning!" In the lower right hand corner, scrawled on butcher paper in black ant-sized letters and stuck to the sign with duct tape was another message: "Room for Rent--See Teller".

Kaskarkaminski And now, surrounded like the saint-like
personages of olden times, with a
radiant halo, that glorified him amid
this gloomy night of sin,--as if the
departed Governor had left him an inheritance of his glory, or as if he
had caught upon himself the distant shrine of the celestial city, while looking thitherward to see the triumphal pilgrim pass within the gates,--now, in short, good Father Wilson was moving homeward, aiding his
footsteps with a lighted lantern! The
glimmer of this luminary suggested the above conceits to Mr. Dimmesdale, who
smiled, --nay, almost laughed at him,--and then wondered if he were going mad.

Kaskarkaminski Come, go with us; speak fair: you may salve so,
Not what is dangerous present, but the loss of what is past.

Vol. I prithee now, my son, Go with them with this bonnet in thy hand;
And thus far having stretch'd it--here be it with them--
Thy knee bussing the stones--for in such business
Action is eloquence, and the eyes of the ignorant
More learned than the ears--waving thy head,
Which often , thus, correcting thy stout heart,
Now humble as the ripest mulberry
That will hold the handling: or say to
them,
Thou art their soldier, and being bred in broils
Hast not the soft way which, thou dost
confess,
Were fit for thee to use as they claim,
In asking their good loves, but thou
wilt frame
Thyself, forsooth, hereafter theirs, so far
As thou hast power and person.

Kaskarkaminski A gift is a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: withersoever it turneth, it prospereth.

He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter seperateth very friends

A reproof entereth more into a wise man
than an hundred stripes a fool.

Proverbs
Ch. l7 8,9,10,11, and 12

An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

Kaskarkaminski Our desires presage the capacities within us; they are hargingers of what we shall be able to accomplish. What we can do and want to do is projected through our imaginations, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality.

Kaskarkaminski shheeees, this page is getting pretty
long don't forget the rules to stichomancy,,,all entries must be random
to give them aid, would be to rob them their power (that is why metaphysians generally have meaningfull stichomancies) the less effort you put into finding it, the less it matters to
you, the more you are free.......to be the vehicle

AzAbr "As it turned out, I'd met her before, about five or so months ago. It had actually been a little tricky. I was leering about, pretty obliterated in the arms of drink, hours of drink actually, feeling like days of drink, when this monsterous guy loomed up in front of me, grumblinginsensibly about bad behavior, something concerning too much talk with to much gesture, gestures towards her, that much of the grumble, the "her" bit, I understood."

So how does it show me the way? I'm unattached, so perhaps I should take up drinking to meet women with grumbling boyfriends.

By the way, don't try this with technical books. My first attempt was with Peter Norton's Assembly Language Book for the IBM PC.
