this library is quiet today, so I may get a little extra writing time in (?) Yes! Thanks for reminding me about "From Hell". I do like watching videos it's true -- a media brat as it were! Now, I'm not clear on this "hobby" of yours... (?) Johnny Depp in particular? *OR* gents in general? I really don't care... just curious and looking for clarification! Let's see... in that vein my favorite classical/period movie would HAVE to be: Franco Zeferrelli's "Romeo and Juliet" !!! -- it's one of the few plays whose dialogue I've got (more or less) committed to memory. Go online anywhere and take a gander at some lupus sites. I was diagnosed with it back in 1996, my bother had been diagnosed with MS about 4 years earlier. So, basically in our cases it's genetic. A genetic crapshoot! And we lost. THIS IS WHY I want to see stem-cell research hurry the fuck up! I mean, I wouldn't mind being someone's guinea pig in the name of helping others... Also, I CAN'T TAKE THE PAIN!! I would at least like to generate awareness about this disease, so I hope you will read about it. The original mortality rate was considered 10 years after diagnosis. Now, in this century lifespan can be normal, yet must also include treatment (of course). I haven't figured this part out yet, as, you know, health care is for the rich! How does health care work in the UK? Anyway... questions, questions... Nic Harcourt? Is he one of yours then? Or is he an Aussie? And how had you heard of him? ... and then... I remember one of your entries from last year talking about how you felt older (or something like that -- I don't want to misquote) than your years... is this true? In other words, do you consider yourself to be an 'old soul'? Sorry Audrey passed away... she was quite the humanitarian. I'm enjoying our writerly relationship thoroughly! There have been several famous ones published, yes? But I guess one has to be dead to get recognized in this fashion. Yes, I wanted to connect, and have, but you have made me realize that I must do that right here and where I am instead of with someone over there and far away... you see? So, I can practice with you at least. I am happy to have a cyber pen-pal! So. Many thanks to you, Kid, for your interest and time and musings... (the library is still quiet and I feel like a thief, stealing away time and writing to you!) Now I will reveal that my birthday is on Valentine's Day! (a day in which Kid, I expect, recoils horrified from the chocolatiers, [shaking his fists] and writing many letters complaining of the mass sugar marketing conspiracy against him!) INSTEAD OF approaching the "Deli girl" and having a special Valentine of his own. Go! Lad! -- find that special someone! I command you! AND as one of Love's emissaries! -- (what else would be my mission for being born on this day?) I have spoken.

The library was surely empty to get so much written! The 'hobby' I referred to is, fortunately for all those ladies out there who were worried, Jack The Ripper himself, and all the theories thereupon. From what I understand about 'From Hell' they've come up with a conspiracy involving all the leading 'suspects', but I believe it'll be a load of old baloney, and will gladly rubbish it. Don't ask me what I think, I only know what isn't the truth. Nic Harcourt, oddly enough, broadcasts from L.A., but at KCRW.com, you can listen to his shows from the past (It works well for me, as I can copy many a live set to minidisc) few months/years. I heard of him througha record label. Its a long story, and probably not worth telling.
Yes, I do feel older than my years, at least a lot of the time I do. Tonight I went out to paint the town red and, including my nose bleed (haha! No, I actually had one, just minor, like) I managed to do so. But I feel all the older for it now. Aching feet and legs - too much dancing believe it or not.
However, I feel sprightly/awake/friendship enough to write this to you - and its 3.27am, you know - I, too, am glad to have a cyber pen-pal. (That phrase sounds so clumsy. Its the 'cyber' that does it. Ruins everything. Hmmm, I don't know). I can only hope in regards to deli girl, but I'll let you know. As for Valentine's day, I tend to spend it consoling my single friends. I'm used to it now, being single, but it hurts some people more than others. Luckily, one of my best friend's girlfriend is (probably) in England for St. V's so he'll be as happy as Larry. She lives in Chicago, you know. Makes you sick, doesn't it?
