This weekend I practiced the fine art of blowing shit off. Though I'm woefully out of practice - preferring instead to wear the thorny crown - I managed quite well. Having the stuffing kicked out of me on Friday helped a lot.
- Important event taking place across the country involving impossibly rigorous travel and emotional resources I don't seem to have: Bagged. Too tired.
- Work: Didn't go.
- Grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning: Fuck that.
- Exercise: Half-hearted attempt offset by an enormous bowl of popcorn and half a bottle of New Zealand pinot gris.
I did manage to see a wonderful play, cuddle Pudding Pop, finish my classwork, and scrape ancient duct tape off the parquet floor (with WD-40 - INSANELY effective and satisfying). There was a lot of sitting on the couch and staring into space. There was a lot of NPR.
Next time what I want to do is this:
Let's play hooky and graffiti the neighborhood.
1 can of beer (extra juvie points if you're underage)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Several clumps of moss
Plastic container (with lid)
Gather several clumps of moss and crumble them into a blender. Add the beer and sugar and blend just long enough to create a smooth, creamy consistency. Moss smoothie! Now pour the mixture into a plastic container.
Find a suitably damp and shady wall onto which you can apply your moss smoothie. Paint your chosen design onto the wall (either free-hand or using a stencil). If possible try to return to the area over the following weeks to ensure that the mixture is kept moist. Soon the bits of blended moss should begin to regenerate into a whole rooted plant following your chosen design before eventually colonizing the whole area.
