Updates are infrequent because I don't have internet in my house, and won't until I can get this whole "in-state" "out of state" tuition thing taken care of.
Until then here is a brief conversation I had with a friend contemplating the nature of people as it relates to donuts. I think Homer would be proud.
i'd say, we're two different vectors of weirdo, in two different directions, pointing away from this one collective blob of averageness
that sounds far too mathy for me
i like the idea of a donut
all the boring people are the hole
most everyone else is bursting with flavor
so you've contemplated hyperspace and hyperdonuts
and then there are the sprinkles
i like to think i'm a sprinkle
i'm above the donut
the sprinkle is donut-shaped too? deepMe
you mean what shape is the donut?
or the sprinkle
the sprinkles are a happy mix of whatever
i liked the dinosaur ones
what about you?
what type of sprinkle are you?
or are you just doughy?My friend
it's like contemplating your navel
but more homer simpsonyMy friend
the caveat is that, regardless of where i am on this hyperdonut of existence, if i start walking forward in any direction, i'll eventually find myself right in the middle - exactly where i didn't want to be!
or, i could just stay in one place, which is even more boringMe
unless you're walking around the outside ring
there is a trail that will keep you far from the centerMy friend
but to find that exact path seems so hard to do!
fuck up one parameter and i'm in the middle again!Me
but you're still outside of the dough
and unlike the empty middle
you have space
and sugarMy friend
the spice of life?
the kryptonite of diabeticsMy friend
and i always thought that salt was the ruler of spicitudeMe
it was until they discovered that it is found in abundance in the sea
suddenly the salt trade was over
but rememberMy friend
we're talking about the donut of reality here
not the bagel of beingMy friend
you know, in the world of math, it's possible to turn donuts inside-outMe
i feel like that would shred the donut-coffee continuum and bring the whole Dunkin Donuts of Reality crashing downMy friend
this is why most people aren't mathematicians!Me
but if you notice the donut still ends up as a donut
helps me to conclude
that maybe that's already happenedMy friend
maybe that's the midlife crisis?Me
and instead of the chocolate icing and sprinkles being readily available and visible for all to rejoice about their instead buried deep within the dough of normalcy
thus meaning that to really find your inner sprinkle you have to bite deep through the averagenessMy friend
which ultimately begs the conclusion: damn, it must suck to be a diabetic.
