song of the stars

Today I did something really odd. Well, what I did specifically is not that strange, but what it meant was really quite crazy, In The Grand Scheme Of Things.
I’ve been reading, fairly regularly, a blog of someone who has been writing about a new sphere of existence (for himself), a new environment .. in detail. I had been reading about it, being able to actually enter the environment in real life, but had not until today.
So, all of a sudden, there I was, in a world that he had described in many finely crafted words over the last month or so, since he started work there. It was a place I had been to many times before, but for some reason, it felt like somewhere I’d never been before. I guess I had been looking at the place through his eyes, through his words, for the last while. If there is a word to describe this oddness, please let me know. It was almost like being John Malcovitch (sp?). Except.. not.
And so I was asked what I wanted. I managed to spit out an answer after fumbling for words for a few seconds.
I ordered a Jones Cream Soda and an Earl Grey tea.
The writer, or as many know him, Jim, rung up the order and I paid. I hung out for a few minutes and chatted as the store encountered a brief calmness. I thanked him for his service and left.
In other news.. this evening, myself and about 20 of my co-workers from the Powersmart team had dinner at Darcy’s pub. The food was great and the conversation was excellent.. enjoyable stuff. 🙂
Afterwards I went to see Red Dragon. Worth seeing. Go see it. Okay?
Music: I’ve been listening to Dead Can Dance tonight. What an awesome duo they are. Today I picked up the new Conjure One album. Conjure One is half Delerium (Rhys Fulber) and half JunkyXL. Haven’t listened to it yet, aside from the bonus remix CD which features a new Hybrid remix that I hadn’t heard yet (could have something to do with me getting the double CD.) Also, I finally found the Heat soundtrack. Some great stuff on there, including Moby’s “God Moving Over The Face Of The Waters.” Sooo good.
But that’s all for me. Good night. 🙂

  2. dav, i went to home depot today to get my lightbulbs and you weren’t there. 🙁 on a happier note i got two free lightbulbs! valued at $40-something dollars. woo hooo!

  3. yeah, they’re pretty cool actually. i have one upstairs in my bedroom and the glow is just perfect. i have the other one outside, ’cause it’s quite flourescent. if they really do last as long as they say, i’ll certainly pay the higher amount for these lightbulbs.

  4. i get my superfine poweryouth team save the world lightbulbs tomorrow. this is like xmas eve, only gooder, ’cause i don’t have to go out to the mall and pick something up for bc hydro. i don’t even know their size.
