I was on eBay looking at costumes and I saw a listing for a "rabid vampire" mask. This is a concept I have never before considered, and it begs so many questions. First of all, can a vampire *carry* rabies? My guess would be no. I would think a virus would require a live host. How would you know if a vampire had rabies? Are they really worse than a regular vampire? I mean, if they bite you, aren't they just going to drink your blood and kill you anyway? Unless they make you into a vampire, in which case the rabies would be irrelevant. If they bit you and didn't kill you then you would contract rabies and that would be awful but I don't see why they would even bother to bite you if they're not going to drink your blood. So, all things considered, if dying of rabies is worse than having your blood drained out then really a rabid vampire is better than a rabid dog.

Not that I'd particularly want to bitten by either.

...I'm finally going to start playing hockey again! I'm playing in the Richardson Women's Hockey League, and my team is the Polar Blast (whatever that is). We play Sunday nights. They put me in the upper division which is freaking me out since I haven't played in sooooooo long but hopefully I'll pick it back up quickly. There are even a couple girls playing who used to be on my team. I have to play against my old coach. Scary. But I've really missed it and I'm so happy I get to do it again.

In other news, work is going well. I like it. And the discount rocks. Also, I'm going to the state fair in a couple weeks so that should be fun. I was going to go this weekend but it's Texas-OU weekend and last time I tried that we ended up parking on the railroad tracks and walking two miles to the entrance. I can't wait to go though- I love fried things and looking at cars and the Kildares are going to be there. So it should be fun.

I created this on myplates.com, which is the site for personalized plates in Texas. The good news is that it's available. The bad news is that it's waaaaay out of my price range.

I want to finish the novel I started over ten years ago. Unfortunately, I don't know where the disks are and I doubt I can find a Mac that takes floppies. But I randomly started thinking about it and I'd really like to write it. I got the idea when I saw the movie Immortal Beloved. I was always a big Beethoven fan, and the movie was based on a letter found written by Beethoven in which he refers to a woman as his "immortal beloved". The letter really was found, but no one knows who the woman was. And so I, being who I am, immediately thought, what if this woman really was immortal? So I wanted to write a novel about Beethoven's love affair with a vampire. How she struggles with taking life when she herself is cursed with immortality, and his struggle with having a gift of music yet losing his ability to hear for himself what he creates. And he makes her feel alive and she brings "music to his heart" that inspires the ninth symphony, ya know, kinda cheesy but based in the facts of his life. Then when he gets sick (they now think he may have died of lead poisoning) she leaves without telling him because she knows if she stays she will make him a vampire and she can't stand to force him into the life she considers to be a curse. So when he realizes that she's really gone he writes the letter and leaves it for her before he dies, and she comes to his room after he dies and reads the letter and she starts to take it with her because it's the only concrete thing that links them but then she realizes that over time the writing will fade, the paper will be gone, and she doesn't want to watch the only thing she has fade away so she leaves it, and that is why they found it in his room. Then I'll end the book with my poem By Moonlight as spoken by her. I think it would be an awesome novel if I did it right. So maybe someday I'll actually write it.

Seven years ago today was the best day of my life. I would elaborate, but it's too painful. Funny how the best memories can hurt the most. So I will distract myself by watching the Cowboys game, and try to pretend that I can handle it. What else can I do? Living it was a dream. Living with its ghost feels like a cruel joke. But in the words of Syd Barrett, "What exactly is a dream? And what exactly is a joke?"

I'm tired of these fraud emails so I asked my dad what to do. He said to email the Secret Service, so I forwarded them to the Secret Service. Ha! Maybe they'll catch them. I would laugh. A lot.

The Japanese haiku poet Basho once wrote, "Old pond / a frog jumps / the sound of water." Try writing some of your own haikus about the little things in your life. A haiku generally consists of a five-syllable line, a seven-syllable line and a second five-syllable line. You can also use any combination of ten-to-fourteen syllables.

off the top of my head-


I look my demon
In the eyes but the mirror
Refuses to speak

You know I can't resist poetry questions. Here's one I wrote a long time ago:

Darkness fades away;
Ground soaks the rising sun's rays-
Cries tears of morning.
