:lulz:  Word.  I think I realized the "now you know, anything goes" attitude will actually keep you out of the looney bin only just long enough to enjoy yourself while you're on the ride about a year into this whole mess.

Ever go skiing, Jenne?  Sometimes you hit an icy patch.  At that point, only sheer nerve will keep you in one piece.  Go faster, always faster.  Loose your nerve, and you're done dealing.

The same concept applies here.

:lulz:  Oh if you only knew my history with skiing.  I uh gave it up.  I hate it.  Hate snow,  hate ice.  Pretty to look at, but not risk my neck on.  Hate the wetness, hate the cold.  Hate the soreness of muscles I never knew were there and the subsequent bruises.

But I have a fear of falling, too.  I think that's why I managed to live in the mountains for 7 years and only skiied twice.

The metaphor still holds.

Yes, it's Alice in Wonderland meets Alice in Chains.

that one liner just produced a massive internal visualisation of what exactly that would be like.

And, I kinda like it. 

The mad hatter's tea party being a little like "Junkhead".. actually, thats scary as fuck!

This makes me want to rewrite Alice in Wonderland as a rock musical.
Except that Layne's dead. :cry:

NOT unreality...not the lack of reality...but apart from reality, away from reality.

It's that point when, to all intents and purposes, there is a reversal of reality, you are taken from it, and placed instead in disreality.  Where the surreal is the real.  Where life is death, death is life.  The not is, and the is never really has been.


OH HAI FROM 2020, WHEN THIS IS ALLLLLL NORMAL.
