*Yawn* S t r e t c h. I get out
of bed, pad over to my fish tank
to give them their breakfast.
Oddly, half are moving left, the
other half to the right. Looking
in the kitchen I notice
yesterday's breakfast - a
croissant - but can't tell if
it's whole or half eaten.
Shrugging it off, I step
my basement apartment and onto
the roof of my highrise building.
Breathing in the fresh air, I
listen to the water splashing in
the rooftop garden and once again
wonder how the thing runs without
a pump. Birds are flying
north/south for the winter. As I
step back inside I squint at the
sun trying to figure out if it's
rising or setting...

||My apologies to [jutta] and all
.5B. I've been sleep deprived
this week and didn't notice the
catagory. [jutta] if you can't
move this idea just [mfd] it.
||[phoenix]: Can't you move it yourself? (scroll down)
||Mephista, does this mean you live with phoenix?
||go rent "Labyrinth" starring David Bowie.....his castle is much like Mephista's house.....
||NOOO! What happened to the Roller Coaster Idea? It was one of my favorites.
||[barnzenen] I may have been unoriginal at the time, but here's an example of the idea you miss (link)
||Thank god, I can start to breath normally again.
||<holds smelling salts under barnzenen's nose> the original MRC link is broken <gives barnzenen a consoling sugar lump> (po has an endless supply - shares in Tate & Lyle)
