Updates of miscellany—or—Yes, I still think about LJ sometimes.

Thanks to being a poetry editor for a literary magazine, I now know that some people use Crisco as lube.

The only problem I have with Doctor Who is its time travel rules. They seem inconsistent and arbitrary to me. For instance, when certain characters get sent back but the angels, I don’t see why they can’t be rescued or visited again. Just because dying in that past time creates a “fixed point” doesn’t mean that all of the points in between are fixed. For an otherwise awesome show, it’s maddening. Or perhaps it’s just maddening to me since I’m a time-travel aficionado.

I'm going to see Wax Tailor on Wednesday.

When I was a kid I thought that there were a sort of finite number of souls in the world. As population grew, souls kept getting split into smaller and smaller bits so that every body got a soul. And thus soul mates are the people that have the other parts of your soul. If you were lucky, there was just the one soul split in two, but it’s more likely that you’ve got dozens of soulmates all over the world and these people are your cosmic family. I was a weird kid.

My theory is similar. Each soul is a puzzle piece, and there are several souls that fit it. The whole puzzle, together, is what I think god is. A collective consciousness that we are all a part of. I think that's why we tend to seek religion, it's a pull to god because we ARE god.
Maybe I'm a weird adult.

Uggh, Angels take Manhattan made me SO MAD. It wasn't even self-consistent!

Interesting theory re. the souls.

I love that soul theory.
