parties and slumber

things that grow less acceptable over time: 1) birthday parties and 2) sleepovers. and i dont mean the adult variety. i'm talking cake and party hats here. and sleeping next to friends after talking about all and sundry random junk. a friend came over after lunch and we did our usual falling asleep in the afternoon routine. so yum. is the best kind of sleep. a) it's in the afternoon, during the day - so decadent! b) it's nice to fall asleep next to someone you love, and watch them fall asleep...and everything. so comfy. why all my sleepy-time-friends got to live so far away? and you bet i'm going to have candles on my cake when i'm 52. yes sir, i am.

a spring bear

watching spirited away. kamaji keeps harping on the power of love... but it's true, at least in japanese fiction (both murakamis, yoshimoto) and movies and anime - things can get crazy random and still it's all love. even when it's giant frogs, love hotels, unicorn skulls or fish raining down from the sky. it's actually love. sigh. it's like this:

(video games - lana del rey)

“I really like you, Midori. A lot.”
“How much is a lot?”
“Like a spring bear,” I said.
“A spring bear?” Midori looked up again. “What’s that all about? A spring bear.”
“You’re walking through a field all by yourself one day in spring, and this sweet little bear cub with velvet fur and shiny little eyes comes walking along. And he says to you, “Hi, there, little lady. Want to tumble with me?’ So you and the bear cub spend the whole day in each other’s arms, tumbling down this clover-covered hill. Nice, huh?”
“Yeah. Really nice.”
“That’s how much I like you.”

shipping, the joys of

can feel myself becoming a more raged person. but i shall endeavour to avoid this by reading this excellent article periodically. and for that reason this will not be a rage post! and boy do i have things i could rage-post about, but for now - shipping - i dig it. it makes my heart go *squee*

fictional characters i ship*:
  • jogan (dalton)
  • rory gilmore and jess mariano (gilmore girls)
  • river and the doctor
  • the ponds (amy and rory, doctor who)
  • hannah and adam/ray and shosh (girls)
  • bunny and v'lu (jitterbug perfume - tom robbins)
  • michael and helen (an equal music - vikram seth) in my head they are so canon. *sigh* 
  • scripps and posner (the history boys) - here have a perfect fanfic.
  • jeff greene and dicey tillerman (the tillerman series - cynthia voigt)

i also ship people IRL*:
  • charlieissocoollike and bryarly
  • breredith 
  • marion cotillard and guillaume canet
  • aj holmes and ali gordon
  • kevin bacon and kyra sedgwick
  • jenson button and jessica michibata
  • kevin smith and jennifer schwalbach
  • wil and anne wheaton
  • jed and mo!

i think it's an exercise in happiness, like listening to mcfly/starkid/hanson. happy, but not too happy. and there is the devastation that comes with other people's breakups...shipping irl is painful (cameron crowe/nancy wilson, susan sarandon/tim robbins, cusack/piven *sobs*). fictional characters are easier to sort with a fanfic or two or a couple thousand.

*incomplete lists.
