New Atlantis ficlet

Er, hello! I know I haven't posted in many, many months. Sorry about that. Anyway, I woke up this morning and wrote a little lantis fic. My gosh, a fic. I know.

My hands are up - this it very much inspired by a wonderful short story called 'In a Tub' by the brilliant Amy Hempel.

Anyway, here it is. It's very short. And it's untitled, so if anyone has an idea for a title let me know.

i gotta go, it's been a pleasure doing business with you

"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino." ~Joe Fox, You've Got Mail.

I ADMIT IT! I am a Starbucks h0r. I'm not proud of it. *sips grande hazelnut latte* I see it as one of my main anti-capitalist/ anti-consumerism failings. Oh, and ALL OF THE SHOES.

When you see this on your flist, quote Firefly.

Zoe hands Simon Mal's ear.
Zoe: "Keep that on ice. We're going to get the captain back."
Jayne: "What are we gonna do, clone him?"

Can't wait to see Serenity next Thursday!

the natural world as my religion (from an aethiest)

For All
Ah to be alive
on a mid-September morn
fording a stream
barefoot, pants rolled up,
holding boots, pack on,
sunshine, ice in the shallows,
northern rockies.

Rustle and shimmer of icy creek waters
stones turn underfoot, small and hard as toes
cold nose dripping
singing inside
creek music, heart music,
smell of sun on gravel.

I pledge allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the soil
of Turtle Island,
and to the beings who thereon dwell
one ecosystem
in diversity
under the sun
With joyful interpenetration for all.
~ Gary Snyder

...and, er, the plug went in some Tizer.

I was just watching my beloved Black Books DVDs when I remembered I had typed out one of the extra scene thingies for the poor aussies who didn't get the shiny extras on their Series 3 DVDs. I posted it to the Black Books comm, like, a year ago, but not here. Which is a long way of saying.. er, here is the transcript of Bernard's Letter:

"...What is this? Where are the turrets? It's RUBBISH!"

If you see this on your flist, quote Shakespeare.

"And all the clouds that loured upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried."
~Richard III

or something like it

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it. (~Ellen DeGeneres)

(doesn't want normal. omg no.)
