I really don't want an answer, so.. when that happens.. I'm driven towards other activities.
In this case, an image.
Months ago it was the crisis, now disease... so...

And then I saw it, the symbol, the message, the it. It was not only establishing the kingdom of freedom and tempest. It was a message sent from the skies avobe, way avobe. The flag of the Kingdom of liberty.

So, it has to be quick, just for the sake of imagination, and so called honesty of the first thought.. so here we go:
1. Think in someone (anyone, you may know him/her well, or you may not, whatever) (QUICK!)
(You can write then the following in a paper, just to read it afterwards but it must still be quick.)
2. What's that person wearing?
3. Were is he/her?
4. Imagine him/her saying something, whatever...
5. Relate a song to him/her. (my favorite part, which as I've confessed once, I keep a creepy creepy list.)
Now.... think about the answers
2. Are the clothes real, why those clothes? Do you like them? Last clothes he/she was wearing? or wtf?
3. Nah, whatever, I have almost always a white background...
4. You can just keep a creepy list like me...

Con tantas campañas hoy en día, parece que la conciencia ecológica está en el aire, que si no fuera porque la gente sigue echando sus bolsitas de Rancheritos y la servilleta del lonche a la calle, uno hasta creería que está en primer mundo. Y sí, en definitiva, la publicidad no puede hacer milagros, y sin duda la gente también tiene que estar educada en eso de preservar el ambiente, no tirar basura, y claro, comprar productos “verdes”.
Pero todo este alboroto ¿qué es en verdad para el medio ambiente? Es más, vayamos más a fondo en lo básico, ¿qué es el ambiente? Pues empezando por ahí las respuestas varían mucho, pero a diferencia de lo que mucho se cree, el ambiente no es sólo los arboles, los ríos y las ardillitas del bosque. Nuestro ambiente también es la ciudad, el pavimento, los semáforos y los edificios. Pero a nadie vemos atándose al expiatorio porque pobrecito lo ensuciamos y se desgasta con la lluvia ácida.
Y ya que estamos preguntando, ¿qué es eso de la inversión térmica? ¿y el calentamiento global… por qué es? ¿Sólo porque somos unos holgazanes que usan mucho su carro y no van de vez en cuando en bici? Desgraciado calentamiento global, ¿por qué nos haces esto? Pues bueno, para empezar el calentamiento global es un efecto necesario para la existencia de vida en el planeta. Esto sucede cuando rayos solares que llegan a la Tierra, quiere rebotar y “regresarse”, pero la atmosfera hace que uno que otro rayo se quede y caliente a la Tierra, y que así haya vida. Esta capa pesada tiene muchas “emanaciones de carbono”. Y así tenemos una “agradable” temperatura en el planeta.
Ahora, el problema es cuando la capa es muy fuerte y logra que muchos rayos de sol se queden contenidos ahí. La solución fácil sería decir “¡Hay que dejar de usar carros y todos andemos en bici y transporte público!” Y claro, ¿por qué no? Si al fin y al cabo también estamos en la cultura del ejercicio ahorita. Y eso sumándole comprar el foco ahorrador, ¡santo remedio!
Pues sucede que no es así de fácil. No solo es cuestión de unirse a la moda verde, ir a conciertos de bandas que predican el mensaje, y comprar lo más in en tecnología verde. Sucede que uno también se tiene que informar, tiene que saber las verdaderas causas de lo que está pasando. No basta con ver un anuncio del planeta tierra con cara de sufrimiento y sudor en la frente para hacernos sentir mal, tenemos que estar educados a cerca del tema, sino solo es una moda más.
Y también sucede que la Tierra y el cambio climático no son una moda, son algo que está ahí sin planes de una siguiente temporada de tragedias. Es cuestión de saber que en los años 60s se creía que el mundo llegaría a una segunda era glacial porque la temperatura comenzó a bajar en ese tiempo. Esa cuestión de saber que desde siempre la temperatura tiende a subir, pero desde hace poco ha incrementado. Es cuestión de saber todos esos datos, saber qué es lo que sucede.
Es cuestión de saber, no solo propagar por Facebook un apagón, o una campaña de reciclaje.
La belleza del ello

The periodic table was incredibly beautiful, the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I could never adequately analyze what I meant here by beauty – simplicity? coherence? rhythm? inevitability? Or perhaps it was the symmetry, the comprehensiveness of every element firmly locked into its place, with no gaps, no exceptions, everything implying everything elseFrom Uncle Tungsten

KARLA: I feel different, apart from everyone. I can’t go to the movies, parties, I can’t be around anyone; this is a curse
PROFESSOR W: Don’t you get it? You are the next step into human evolution, I can’t stretch this enough your gift is something wonderful
KARLA: Some of the other freaks can lift things with their minds, even that would be cool, I could hide it, or do fun stuff, but I’m just a creep. There’s nothing fun about knowing everyone’s sexual fantasies
Then a beep kind of ring distracted me and I stopped typing, it was the MSN, Molly was talking to me.
Mrs. Cullen the III said: Sooo, talk you big whore, what happnd with Ooliver last nite?? Did he gave you his English sweetness?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: Molly, that’s so last…night. Nothing happened; he had a tea party or something today, so he flew off. I have this literature thing for tomorrow… so.
Mrs. Cullen the III said: tea party? I don’t think they have tea parties around here…
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: M that was sarcasm…
Mrs. Cullen the III said: I see… thn Y did u got home so late??? Was it that boi fromk your drama club?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: No, it’s not all about boys you know. Wait, how the hell do you know I arrived so late last night?
Mrs. Cullen the III said: a girl knows her ways
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: You were the one on skype with Paul last night weren’t you?...Ew you’re gross!!!… and then you go around calling me a whore
Mrs. Cullen the III said: I was just saying hi, the boy’s been gone for a whole semester!
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: right, and I’m sure that welcome committee involved him opening the door in his briefs right?
Mrs. Cullen the III said: ooo I’m sorry mother superior, well gtg I also have a paper due tomorrow, I guess I’ll Wikipedia it.XXX Bye
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: Whatever doesn’t involve my brother flexing his arms in front of the web cam is fine by me. Haha
Now that was an unnecessary interruption, Molly overall was an unnecessary interruption, I wondered a lot how come we were friends in the first place. I bet she started talking to me to get to my brother, which wouldn’t make her the first one. Anyway, she was okay, when she was not giving herself to her own webcam. And I had more important stuff to do, and to worry about, specially about the night before, but it was all blurry, it was all so damn confusing and it was all so tomorrow-I-have-to-deliver-this-script! Five thousand words for the next day, actually I only had left 16 hours, what was I thinking leaving it for a Sunday?
PROFESSOR W: There is probably not one person in the entire planet that can do that as well, you’re special
KARLA: Thanks that makes me feel better, you know, when you call me a freak! Do you think there is anyone else the universe would hate so much as to make them know their mother’s fantasy involves heights and hamsters? You have no idea how much I hate this.
(KARLA picks up her stuff and leaves running, PROFESSOR W tries to stop her, but sees it’s useless. The scene changes and KARLA is walking in the street, next to a park, where she sees common people doing ordinary things)
SIMON: (sneaks behind her back) So… what’s that hot chicks morbid desire? (He says, pointing to a girl exercising.)
KARLA: (in startled) you scared me! It’s not funny Simon Diamond…(she jingles this name)
SIMON: Hey that’s not fair! I was just messing around
KARLA: So was I
SIMON: Not with my carbon-fixed-in-hexagonal-perfect-arrangement-material obsession. You know kids wouldn’t let me alone since 6th grade because of that…
And then another beep, announcing I would never end the lamest script ever written in history. I was thinking that it would be the best option to just freaking close the MSN, but then… I was waiting for a person to log on, which was the same person who had messaged me. Only that I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to talk.
-Untrust us- CCs said: hi
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: hi… what’sup?
-Untrust us-CCs said: well it’s only fifteen days until the Crystal Castles come to our humble little Chicago.
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: Boy haven’t I heard from those lately
-Untrust us-CCs said: What can I say, I let people know what I like :D. So what are you doing?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: This lame script for literature, I should have started sooner, it’s five thousand words.
-Untrust us- CCs said: What’s it about?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: You will mock it, and then I’ll be pissed and won’t write about it.
-Untrust us-CCs said: Common Sarah, like I do that kind of crap…>_>
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: exactly my point...
-Untrust us- CCs said: c’ommon, you know you’ll end up telling me, why not now? You’ll need the time to finish it.
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: ugh…It’s about this girl who can read people’s minds. It’s kind of like an X-men parody, but it wasn’t meant to be. And the twist is that what she can see is other people’s ….sex fantasies.
-Untrust us- CCs said: well..that’s…original. But where does she live?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: is that some sort of euphemism I’m not aware of?
-Untrust us- CCs said: no, I mean it. It’s not the same to go around reading fetich and depravation around NYC than to picture saggy ranch sex with marriage in Texas.
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: I hadn’t thought that much into it, let’s just say she’s in a place where they’re all disturbing to her
-Untrust us- CCs said: Cali it is then
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: hahaha, isn’t half of your family from cali?
-Untrust us- CCs said: Then I’m talking from experience, you know how I told you second cousin Jeff was into me… and that whole summer I went by myself…
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: Margaret Susan Moore! You’re a bad bad person! hahahaha
And as always, she made me laugh; we spoke about nothing really, which nearly took two hours out of my 16-hour life span before failing at the project. It felt like always, an always that had been defined for years now, she knew I was hysteric about everything, I knew she wasn’t serious about anything. It was a system that had worked; it was something that kept me sane in a way. But then the previous night.
-Untrust us- CCs said: so has Mr.ImfromWales called? You two looked pretty dreamy last night
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: nah, he’s just a bluff, I bet he’s from a freaking borough in London.
-Untrust us- CCs said: don’t be so bad S, he’s the best European importation we have had since that Norwegian guy, do you remember him? …. *drools*
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: well, he was something. What a big damned something.
-Untrust us- CCs said: I think Molly made out with him
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: I think Molly made out with every guy we know…
-Untrust us- CCs said: Hey! That WOULD be calling her a whore, if only that wasn’t true XD
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: We’re so bad… And… speaking about yesterday…
-Untrust us- CCs said: yes? Are you going to lecture me on not challenging guys to shot competitions? Because we’ve both been down that road Mrs. Danniels
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: I was actually speaking of later yesterday… When I drove your car to my home… with you there, very drunk…
-Untrust us- CCs said: …where are you getting at?
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: well…you know, when you…
-Untrust us- CCs said: leaned and kissed you? More like sucked your nose?
Avoid THEpinkWAGON said:….
-Untrust us- CCs said: c’ommon Sarah, there comes a time in every girl’s life where she kissed her girl best firend because she’s drunk and then they repeat it to get free drinks and get into clubs
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: you also said some stuff… I am just… what’s going on?
-Untrust us- CCs said: I was drunk girl, it’s not like we did anything, a kiss and you want to marry or what? I mean Iowa would be happy to have us these days…
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: I’m serious, you said some stuff, I… Look, I can see how you don’t want to talk about this, but I’m just confused and well, Idk..
-Untrust us- CCs said: leave it, I was drunk, you were half way there, I was being stupid, you were being is-this-some-teenage-angst-series-moment? And I have to go
AvoidTHEpinkWAGON said: wait…
And then she was off. And I was put off, and it was all called off. Not was I only an angsty girl doing a lousy script, but I was an agnsty teen in a ridiculous scene, as if I was planned for the episode treating with stupid literature papers and stupid friends who kiss you and confess stupid love so then they can just make jokes about free drinks. It was like the mere purpose of her doing it was to screw my life and break the balance, like in some lack of imagination, low budget film. I was just a slapy screwed up character.
There were things she had said, there things I wish I had said, there were just so many things, so much plot. It made me wonder if this changed anything, it made me wonder if this was one of those things that break friendships for ever, it made me wonder if we would forget it and joke about it next year. It also made me think if everything would go from the girl who dated a couple of guys including a british, to the girl who fooled herself with guys and ended up being as straight as a noodle.
It also made me wonder if Karla would be any different if lesbian. And it made it wonder of what would she see in me.
KARLA: You know what the worst part of this whole thing is?
KARLA: That people don’t even get creative with their sex fantasies, unless they are my mom… or Professor W…
Just a screw up lousy character…

By I'm the penguin
and it was not a violent bang
but a thoughtful bang
A bang I thought was nice
Because it was on my mind
It made me jump out of bed
That made me want to scream
It was surprising
but it woke me up one day more
I hope we're full of bangs
and of crashs
but of those bangs crashs and booms that are found in our mind
