I brush to start an imaginary process.
I brush to clean a slate.
I brush too hard.

I spit out a peppermint twirl.
The red and white stripes spin down the sink.
I'm violently fresh.

That fluffy bear is dead.
It's limbless and remains in the corner of my room.
It's just combusted, should I put the fire out?
Or just sit here?
This fire isn't even cold, perhaps if I blink it'll go away.
I was reminded of the dream where I was sleeping, so I brushed my teeth again.

Back to the drawing. Bored.

I slaughtered a lemon and dunked my head in honey.
It was then I remembered I was sick,
and it's actually earlier than usual,
and my metal blankets were here to help me.

Or so they tell me.

Heh, thanks :blushes: Love to screw around with language every now and then :D

That would have been awesome! I really should have seen him, think he was here in Januaryish. Yet another opportunity not grabbed by the beard.

You're awesome ^^
It doesn't matter how many times i read this after the line "This fire isn't even cold, perhaps if I blink it'll go away." i start to chuckle and i can't keep on reading without smiling.
Thanks for sharing this, i guess it's made my week (:

Lol. Do you ever feel like that? Like you're simply observing things, maybe very strange things, and it's like you're totally removed from the situation? As though what is happening isn't real, it's on tv or something and you're just watching.

You're more than welcome, I should really apologise for allowing my ramblings to leak into the DA sphere.
Sans-sommeil Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2011   Traditional Artist
Now when i think about it.. Yes, i feel like this sometimes too. It doesn't happen very often but still it's familiar to me :>

You shouldn't apologise. These ramblings are just alive (: I mean, it says much more than thousands of logical blogs or something. Really. At least, i think so :>

man, you're journals are FAR more interesting to read than mine.
i like brushing my teeth.
i like my teeth. never had braces, never had a cavity, my teeth have never let me down so i never let them down.
Simanion Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha you lie, as I just visited and posted a rather long response to one of yours.

I have a bit of an abusive relationship with my teeth. I don't appreciate them for all they've done for me. Never had braces either, had a couple of holes... Really, all I have going for me is my teeth. Of all compliments I've ever received, most have been tooth-related. If I lose my teeth it's over for me, haha. Are people going to say I have nice eyebrows or a good chin? I don't think so.
micka-angelo Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2011
what about the hair? i thought your hair was impressive.
i occasionally get compliments about my beard, i enjoy those. its funny, most girls these days dont like facial hair, then one every so often is like "ooooh.....beard...." *creepy stare as if they want to touch it* hahaha, my girlfriend likes facial hair.
p'haps hairy is making a comeback? i guess it is with hipsters.
speaking of hipsters, i went to lee and me for the first time, WOAH... I felt kinda weird, its HELLA cool in there. almost... TOO boho. but it was good.
Simanion Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist're absolutely right. I have become my hair. I can never get rid of it now. The saddest thing is it's eventually going to get rid of itself anyway. Haha. I think hairy is definitely making a comeback. Moustaches are 100% in with the hipsters already, it's only a matter of time until the full Ned Kelly beard is back in business.

Yeah man, Lee and Me is great. The upstairs boutique is overpriced hipster bullshit, lol, but otherwise the food and coffee are awesome. Staff is really nice too. I had a date there today! Basically my first legit date, not a bad place for it if you ask me.
micka-angelo Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
let me be the first to say, "woot woo"
yeah it seems nice. i had their salmon fritters and a vanilla latte, it was nice they brought out the shot of vanilla and the latte separate so i could mix it myself. hahaha, and the staff were nice, but also kinda hard to pic, they looked as though they could just as easily be patrons.
are you going to grow a moustache? i kinda have one, but it sux, the hair on my upper lip doesn't grow very well.
what do you mean your hair will get rid of itself *look of terror*
ned kelly...
Simanion Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha, you actually are the first to say that, as I've only told you and one or two people. It was supposed to happen last week on the day of dropshadow, but she cancelled - and then when people started coming - people I never, ever talk to - they all seemed to know already. It was highly infuriating, lol.

Did you get chips with the salmon fritters? Their chips are incredible (usually) and it's all about the aioli they come with. Gotta have that aioli..

Dude I could never grow a moustache, it looks sooo seedy. Like the most suspicious Mexican ever. Haha, it's just never thick enough and so just looks really bad. And with it being black, it's way more noticeable. Having said that, plenty of guys are the same and just do it anyway... I like to think I'm above them. LOL.
micka-angelo Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011
I did not get the chips, i got a salad :[ healthy and shit, i know i'm the picturesque image of under 25 australian male health and all, i mean all my folds are clean.
lol, sorry.
I hate when people know things about one's personal life even tho you've never told them. it means one of two things. or maybe three, although i doubt the third one ever happens.
oh right, i should tell you the things now, shouldn't i?
1: That someone you confined in spilled the beans and burned your trust
2: you are so obvious even though you think you are secretive and everyone can see on the surface that which you think is hidden beneath. which majorly sucks because i found out this was happening to me.
AND the final option i dont have confidence to think is true because i dont have this much confidence in peaople is:
3: Someone is very, very observant and can see things others can't see because of their abnormally grand ability to observe the truth. because they are observant.
ok, i like to type that word. its strange i know, that i like typing something, but try it. observant.
like playing piano.
cept, i cant play piano.
Sorry i'm so scatterbrained, i argued til i think i burned out a fuse today with a guy who shits me coz hes 50 and has the worst opinions about art then suggested my opinuions dont matter because he said "this is obvious you know everything and i know nothing because your 22 and im 50 and i forgot the youth of today no more than anyone else.." typical elder person who can't act like an adult and have a proper discussion.
Anyway, this is irrelevant, so
back to the topic.
right, moustache. Mine looks kinda gross right now, but i'm aiming to have one like the guy from My Name Is Earl, so im trying not to chew it. gross i know.
then again you can just carry round a sharpie and do instant stache when you are having your photo take- OH SNAP
you already did that hahahah. sorry i think im funny.
hmm good way to look at it i suppose, i hate when people grow beards/moustaches and they look terrible, the double standard is i'm one of them.
no, seriously, i looked like this before hipsters decided it was cool. back when i first sprouted my first pube looking facial hair i said "im gonna grow a beard."
I was 12.
Since then i shaved til i was 16, under the belief shaving caused the hair to grow back thicker and darker, as the reason why many women wax apposed to shave and why jerry seignfeld ruined his chest hair on his show. However, it still grew through measly and mainly in the sideburns and chin.
So i went with the abe lincoln look. and never looked back. at 17, it was in its glory, and for the past 5 years, i have seldom ever changed my beard style, except recently to include a moustache, which i semi commited to once before but shaved one day on a whim.
my lip was cold
i regretted it immediately.

I just realised I never replied to this, but I just wanted to let you know it was a magical journey for me.

It is quite interesting trying to decode this.
I like prose that comes straight from one's head to the paper.
Simanion Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha, any unexpected conclusions? I do love a nice spot of prose :) Me too, I like to get inside people's heads and feel around.
