my brain has been minced meat. like this whole year practically. as evidenced by the blogs here. these days it's the forum and computer games. team fortress 2 lately, which even typing it rolls off my fingers like a cigarette I had forgotten was in my pocket. I'm talking with rachel now and I don't feel ashamed. I was just standing in the dining room, which has bay windows and an antique rug, and I felt like a doll standing there, my legs and abdomen so shapely and proportional to the room,...
