Choose your own adventure?
Don’t try to find me. I’ve moved to Planet Madness.
As you may have guessed, the king of this planet is none other than The Madness himself.

I remember when we used to have tea (earth tea) and he would kick the old joke bucket around about how one day he would kidnap me and take me to his planet. Despite the fact that he was the almighty madness, I never believed him. I should’ve listened to the little hairs that shivered quietly on the back of my neck.

The day the madness took me away was a day like any other. The sky had not fallen, and Chicken Little was nowhere in sight. Fearful humans were running the streets trying their best to appear elegant and OK with it all. I was waiting for a bus downtown, creating magical stories inside my brain, followed by the usual bursts of quiet laughter and then the old quick glance around to make sure nobody saw me laughing to myself when I had no book or phone, or company…then scolding myself for caring.

Then an anorexically skinny man with a top hat and handlebar moustache sat beside me. He was blowing bubbles with his spit (bubbles as big as the balls so many of you wish you had. YEAH, that big.) He smelled like semen and sugar cookies. It was disgusting, but curiously delightful.

Just as I was about to compliment his fancy top hat, he said (in a most poetic presentation) “Derp-a-lop-a-doo. Shampa-skampa-loo. Who are you? Knives the size of Jupiter have kitty feet for souls.”

It was then that I understood…Every strange pleasant smile on the disheveled men who sit at street corners debating the politics of fish to invisible creatures around them. Every woman pushing a cart with all her posessions singing quietly…then loudly…then quietly yet again, and then the final angry punch to the air, before she silences herself and that smile appears.

Yes, the world finally made sense.

But, don’t miss me too much. I won’t be here long. The Madness doesn’t know this yet, but I have a brilliant escape plan. Or maybe he does know and I will be punished greatly…or fucked beautifully. We’ll see. Until then, I will enjoy my time here on Planet Madness just fine. I still have much to learn, and perhaps may vacation here in times to come.

For now I bid you farewell. Hope you are excellent. Wish you were here…and all of those things.

Love and loony bins,
Emily (aka…The Madness?)

Oh, the Madness, it's back. I've missed it, it sure has been a while since I've heard from it.

Oh how I've missed your entries and you. Nice to know you're still around, but you need to frequent these parts more often. Please!

Ahh the Madness

Curious that I should be reading your journal... err, autobiography of madness! I suspect that there are other forces at work here. Feel free to send me warp-speed grams from Planet Madness..... gods, I miss that place! hehe
Yours in space travel,

The Madness

I am still and have been circling the compound for ages. The Towers are so high and imposing. The architecture is strange and curvilinear yet not fragile looking at all. It is so calm beyond the perimeter and to pace with the 45 or so others is a lonely action. The random cries and yelps and laughter are so sporadic. the path we walk has been replaced by a sidewalk painted with ads for Freedom Towels.

I wasn't around when you posted this, I've just recently come back to LJ.

Everyone else seems to be taking your entry in jest. I fear this is your way of saying that you're going a little loony. And I mean more than the normal controlled crazy. I hope that the others perception of your post is more corrected. And if so, I hope you'll return soon.
