obliterate your reality.
Today is my birthday. My sweet 22 has packed her bags and left for a new adventure. 23 is now within me, and has greeted me with prickly arms and snarled tooth a plenty.

There is something about a number that makes me frown. Can we change the rules a bit? Why not words, or phrases, to represent our stay on this earth?[rather than these cold mechanical numbers...]

It is on this day, that I Emmalee Elizabeth Tygum, have turned...

quietly enamored [of life]
beautifully insane
furiously seductive
charmingly stupid
magically delicious

"Ahh the good old days, when I was charmingly stupid, and the world existed only for me."

"Young whippersnapper, don't tell me what you know about being furiously seductive. I too, was once furiously seductive. Ah yes, I remember it well. That summer, my lover and I ran naked through a magical forest, never stopping to wonder for one moment why it was we never grew tired. We survived on love, and jelly beans. It was after all, the year of the jelly bean."

I guess if for some amazing reason, it was decided that our brands of existence were synonymous with words, there would still have to be some kind of order, since that's how things go. And you know the assholes who are in charge would make it stupid and boring. "Today Abner Abernstein has turned old and smelly. He continues to hate his life."

Not that I would ever rule out numbers completely. Numbers are of a beautiful nature. But this beauty is superficial. You can't ask a number to tell you a bedtime story, and expect to smile as you are falling asleep. Trust me, I tried. Not only are they awful story tellers, but Fingernails On a Chalkboard are green with envy of the numbers' ability to eat at human souls[and with such a lack of effort too!].

Anyway, life goes on. And for that I am happy. Each day holds a new surprise. Who doesn't like surprises? If it's you, then you better start liking them, because they are in love with you. Oh, it's true.

:o) happy birthday emma.

i hope you enjoy being twenty thr....i mean furiously seductive and of course magically delicious.

oh, i will. brains need not wonder, or worry about this. how could anyone NOT enjoy being furiously seductive and magically delicious? to sour this gift would be a crime.

p.s. about tomorrow. i don't have a ride as of yet, and have no access to a car of my own at the moment. sad news! i am still in the process of trying to figure this out though. my brain tingles. it must be done!

Your entries always make me think. I love how your sentances flow.

Happy birthday by the way.

so, you are the one known as the strange and deranged? i've heard about you in fairy tales, and in whispered conversations at the bus stop.

i'll be turning 27 on sunday. if you are like me, by that time you will no longer think about the nature of time, just wonder where it has all gone.
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
yes, i wonder about that now.
From: electricsinboy Date: March 17th, 2004 04:15 am (UTC) (Link)
numbers may rattle their bars but the quiet simplicity of math can put even the most frantic brain into a sense of peace. an american elf taught me that a good way to go to sleep is to picture increasingly complex geometric shapes. first a circle, then triangle, then square. when you reach the limit of 2d start picturing spheres, pyramids, etc. numbers are cold and very robotic. they don't hate people or the blessed chao we exist in. they just paint the walls of our mortal coil in ever changing colors.
they are not a harsh mistress, only a chilly tile floor in the morning.

and age is so funny anyway. if we were in space or moving at a great enough speed our lives would move at a different rate anyway. when i sit at a barstool time moves differently too. i count my age by scars and tattoos, lines on my face and callous' on my hands.

honestly furiously seductive kind of scares me. but in a good way.
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
oh, barstool time! that crazy bastard boggles and amazes me every time.

furiously seductive will eat your soul, and you will smile as she nibbles.

X-Posted to all of your mailboxes

Message entitled "My adoration for you is private in a public way"

I will congratulate you on surviving in such a wonderful, splendificous way for 22 complete years. I am willing to bet that modern society will restart the way they count the years, and from this day forward consider this year "23." If they do not, I am sure that I will.

If I knew your address, I would have sent you a birthdaygram, complete with a singing midget with a string quartet playing "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica. They would all be dressed to look like the Misfits. The personal message would be; "When you mumble goodmorning in my ear, with the sun glinting through the window, and my nose wrinkles because we both have morning breath, and my arm is slightly sweaty from being held between your chest and arm all night... Only then will I be completely at home."

Following your writing here for a while I would like to add, that this day you have turned "distanced sensitive". This will make you able to celebrate the dance with words in an even more amazing way than you already do. I can not wait till your next entry telling us about your new advanture.
A new advanture during a period supposed to be a logical thing but deserves to be a magical thing. You advanture in the purest form looks like this: 23
You give it a shape and whatever you do I hope you share it with us and bring back memories of my 23. Looking back I have to admit I did not treat my 23 in a good way and it does not look beautiful anymore. But I have a lot of beauty I can look back to like a 18, a 25 and my 28 is not ready yet but I already like the way it look, it smells and the way it touches me.

Another entry from the stupid german guy that makes no sense at all but - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
that "stupid german guy" makes me smile. i love that "stupid german guy"! being stupid and german never looked so good. :)

thank you for your words chris. they are always appreciated, and smiled upon.

You are brilliant and I miss you.
I want to visit you, Emma.
But, I can't seem to talk with you.
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
it's been rough lately.
my regular aim isn't working at all.
so now i'm just using the aol one. shhh don't spread the word on my aol use. round' these parts just whispering "aol" sends humans into a rage so passionate they immediately kill every living thing within a 10 mile radius. they spin their arms like wheels. it's a very disturbing sight.

I've always liked the idea of traditional wedding anniversary gifts, chinese animal years, and other such shit, where each year has a symbolic representation. it creates a connection. it makes the number actually mean something.

anyway. a most wondrous day to you.
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
i agree. i love symbolism.

thank you miss.

"Charmingly stupid"
Works from zero to thirty.
After? "Too damned old."
girlsetsfire From: girlsetsfire Date: March 18th, 2004 08:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahah. After reading that I got a distinct image of you being a bitter old man, saying that as you sway back and forth in your rocking chair[that is on the verge of falling apart], with a fat grey cat [with one eye] switching her tail and drooling.

and of course your huge penis dangling out of your pant leg. SO BIG! ;)

P.S., is it just me, or did i read it Emalee, rather then Emily? Maybe my vision is starting to go. Or maybe its one of your wonderful puzzles, you call life.

my reality absorbs and reforms all gathering shattering realities

yeah, true.
lustily transmogrified.
froggily horrified.
sublimely dame edna-ish.
spookily puckish.
adamantly capricious.
funereally fer real.

but about numbers. shame on you. what would ramanujan say? he'd give you a slap on the fingers is what...in sign language and interprative dance. he'd wag his tongue at you...peirce the tongue...run a string through it...and operate a triplicate quadriplegic one limbed puppet who would plaintively plead that you recognize the beauty and the horror that is: los numeros.

each number has a personality and history just as each word. and what sanctifies each phrase and integer? it's relation, permutation, combination with others...some not all that eager to combine. some turn their noses up. but onerous numero cinco says, "turn that frown upside down number six billion three hundred million...ah, yah windbag...no wonder you have a short attention span." and with numbers...each one represents an imploding universe of sparkling crystalline continuums and irrealities.

I breeze by livejournal only ever so often, and few people I've missed- you're one of them.


Enjoy your birthday beautiful. I believe I still owe you a pack of abnormally expensive cigarettes..

Re: remember me?
