Today I feel like Galileo in memories, my memory body, whatever. He was nicknamed 'the wrangler' for he challenged teachers and wasn't afraid of conflict if expressing his beliefs (scientific or otherwise) meant creating such the conflict. Sure, he was far before my time. He was truly changing science, enlightening people to the ways of the world.

I just taught a history teacher that the moon DOES rotate. Debated God, stood up for my conclusions, questioned knowledge until I felt I had the truest version I could comprehend--and constantly seeking the state of mind that would allow me to comprehend further.

Galileo: "Aristotle says that a hundred-pound ball falling from a height of one hundred cubits hits the ground before a one-pound ball has fallen one cubit. I say they arrive at the same time. You find, on making the test, that the larger ball beats the smaller only by two inches. Now, behind those two inches you want to hide Aristotle's ninety-nine cubits and, speaking only of my tiny error, remain silent about his enormous mistake."

Smiles and laughter. I strive to be a Galileo, but also a bridge beyond the sciences--back to bridging science, philosophy, language, creativity... That's what I want to do with my life. Somehow. I want to keep being a Wrangler, and a number of other conceptual characteristics as well.

Today is incredibly happy, despite my useless doctor's appointment (I'm essentially not handicapped/disabled enough, but I'll continue researching). Today I sent out a Facebook message thanking some of my favourite people for, essentially, being themselves. I just had the overwhelming urge. I needed to. I got this beautiful response from Kitty.

Kiwi! You came across brilliantly!!! I can feel your love and joy and spectacularness even with all the distance between us!

I so mirror everything you said right back to you! You're this wonderful, funky, crazyrandom ridiculous rabbit, sweet, loving, open, endearing soul. I'm so glad to have met your wonderfully colorful and caring self! I can't wait to see a friendship flourish between us, for you are a truly inimitable Kiwi!

Understanding is so beautiful; it's indescribable.

I also spent an hour writing a sonnet about a peculiar subject embodied by my icon. It makes me very happy and giggly.

I also finished my statistics--four days early, too, like the diligent duck that I am! It doesn't have the same thrill as last-minute endeavours. It has the tingling of relief. I will have to accept that. I am still working on my notes.

At any point in your life, should you find statistics as thrilling as the sight of Kaylee eating a strawberry...

Call me, and I will euthanize you.

There would simply be no point in existence after that.

It really doesn't matter whether you are logged in or not Lash. You are so YOU and your comments so obviously made by you. They are simply the best. I recall your last. Got it instantly. Plus, you always sign with the L.

Plus, you always sign with the L.

Oh. Yeah. That would be a clue, wouldn't it? Well, at my age we can't call it premature senile dementia, that's a bit of comfort, anyway.

Laughts--I wrote that incorrectly! I meant I didn't get the same thrill as when I do things last minute, rather than the thrill I get watching Kaylee consume strawberries! I would be worried if statistics created the same feelings as Kaylee's strawberries. Very concerned at that.

Yes, I think euthanasia would be the only answer for me then.

Anyone, other than me, think Lash knew exactly what you meant and wrote that anyway? For shits and giggles. It was funny!

Laughter. I never really know with Lash unless I'm in a room with her. :P Inflection gives it away. Text doesn't always!
