hawkeye enterprise creed

while looking through some of my mom’s things, i found an interesting handmade “card” in two different wallets of hers, with the following typed on them:

hawkeye enterprise creed
i am a figment of the universe’s imagination. i have no excuse for being here. and whether you can smell it or not, something is rotten in the state of Existence. therefore be at peace with your bod’, and whatever lovesick heebies may be your lot.
dont’ tell Anybody i’m here!

fantastic. i love it, and am adopting it as my own creed for life.

mother's day present

May 14, 2006 at 12:12 am (Uncategorized)

i miss my mom so much. people are starting to give me the “holy crap, why won’t she just get over it already” looks, and my labmates seem to have decided my continued depression is a sign of scientific weakness. well screw them all.

i tried to go out and get a mother’s day card for my mom, but i almost broke down in the store looking at all the stupid, happy cards for people to give to their living moms while they pretended to actually mean something behind it. i thought of making a shrine, but it didn’t seem right, so instead i thought of things my mom loved- purple things, and cats. and i’m tired of always carrying the burden of all the tears i’m going to cry for her for the rest of my life, so i thought i could bring in a standin, for those moments when life might shine through my darkness with its original splendor. not that it does that very often. so, i made this little purple cat, holding flowers i should be placing on my mom’s….trees? she doesn’t have a grave, but we did plant fruit trees for her, and last year i placed flowers in the middle of them for her. a silly ritual, but it eased my soul slightly, for a moment at least.

sushi goodness

i have yet another new hobby …. hahahaha felt sushi, and a potato monster…awesome! i was inspired by the awesome crafts i saw looking at craftster.org…. if you can’t tell what the potato monster is about to partake in, it is three california roll- things, a piece of sashimi, an eggroll and some edemame… yum! i guess the eggroll is sorta out of place, but it was fun to make. next project: a monster for one of my grumpy labmates, so he’ll lighten up.
