My Christmas tree is out on my balcony this year. It only has one strand of 50 mini-lights on it, which is only about $2 a month, but actually looks nice and might give some birds a little warth this winter, so i figure I'll keep it glowing for a few months this year.
Yeah, I can hear the neighbors now, "Lazy butt, still has those darn lights up."

I hat Christmas but by God, that tree does not come down until Epiphany. It's not over until I've made Three King's Cake.

Question for Thursday, January 3, 2007: what was the most interesting or startling thing you learned between 16 and 19 years of age?

trisherina 01-03-2008 08:24 PM

That I was utterly worthless.

lukkucairi 01-03-2008 09:02 PM

that there really was a santa claus

auntie aubrey 01-03-2008 09:04 PM

that i didn't need anyone.


10 years later the most startling thing i learned was that i was wrong.

hmm lets see.. 16-17 was the last year of school, 17-19 was university.

i think those are the years in which i learned i can't trust anyone, i am worthless, nobody cares about me, nobody respects my boundaries so i'd better shut up about stuff that matters to me or get my face kicked in, and i'd be better off dead. you know, stuff like that. it wasn't pretty back then.

That doctors don't know everything, hospitals can't fix just anything, and if my father has a stroke and is in the I.C. unit, then there really isn't all the time in the world to see him like I thought there was, no matter how angry I am at him.

Wow, me too.
I was kind of slow on the uptake about the second part.
And I think for me it would be more accurate to say I don't need anyone in particular, but I do need others.

i learned that "reality" is not strictly determined by external inputs to the sensory system - it also hinges on internal top-down processes...reality is just as malleable and illusory as a passing thought.

That at 16, I personally, was better off at home than to be a runaway.
