here's an interesting site if you feel like expressing your artistic side but aren't quite sure where to start or don't really want to put yourself out there all alone.
"SwarmSketch is an ongoing online canvas that explores the possibilities of distributed design by the masses. Each week it randomly chooses a popular search term which becomes the sketch subject for the week. In this way, the collective is sketching what the collective thought was important each week. (Due to increased traffic sketches are currently being updated after about 1000 lines)
Each user can contribute a small amount of line per visit, then they are given the opportunity to vote on the opacity of lines submitted by other users. By voting, users moderate the input of other users, judging the quality of each line. The darkness of each line is the average of all its previous votes."
They all look a bit of a mess to me but kinda fun to fool around with i guess...

so what has kept me up (besides the migraine) reading all night long? Illegal Drugs: A Complete Guide to Their History, Chemistry, Use and Abuse by Paul M. Gahlinger. This is an incredibly interesting, comprehensive, and informative book.

So anyway, here we are at this WILD (even by my standards--and trust me i have an interesting history which, perhaps, might be shared at another time) party, my sis and i hanging out with these girls for a while--a few things happen...
and eventually i get separated from my sister and i am search of a phone for some unknown reason--you know how dream logic goes--and i stumble upon these somewhat STAR-TREKIE-TECHIE-GEEKIE-COOL guys (you know the type i mean) and i am suddenly very interested in flirting--with teenage boys--yes my forty-year-old-self forgets about my poor helpless teenage sister and flirts heavily with a pimply faced boy who is, at best, semi-interested.
Meanwhile, the very long ash from the cigarette that i am smoking (i have mentioned that i don't smoke--except for that maternal issue night--haven't i?) is dropping onto some kind of electrical wire thingy, and starting little electrical fires, which the boy i am so intensely flirting with keeps trying to put out. I keep dropping ashes, keep starting ever increasing fires, his semi-interest is ever-waning, i am noticing the fires but not really caring. The boy is beginning to get more and more annoyed with me and yet i continue to flirt (also, by the by, intense flirting with Anyone, is usually not one of my highest priorities).
oh and let me also add that i have a little phobia about electrical fires (not plain old pyrophobia because i actually have very Minor, Slight tendencies toward pyromania at times just electrical fires, mind you) and explosions (atomosophobia-and i actually have died by being blown up in a few dreams)...
