that dyslexia thing...

I just spent an hour or so crawling around the web looking for a bibliographical reference and not finding it because I was mis-remembering the name Tavris as Tavis or Travis. I knew it wasn't Travis, actually, but was beginning to wonder a bit desperately when I wasn't finding the book title I was looking for under Tavis-no-'r'. I finally backed into it by way of the topic, almost by accident. Sigh.

Didn't scoot fast enough - no movie for me. Of course, which film was it? The Fast Runner. I really should have known better...

Q: what's wrong with your face?

fantasy conversation A: leprosy. A particularly virulent strain that only affects people who ask annoying questions. I caught it by asking this person 'what's wrong with your face?'

real conversation A: it's a stress reaction/rash/thing. No, it's not contagious. Yes, it's cyclical. Yes, it goes away. Yes, it hurts/itches/bugs the living f**k out of me. No, your inquiry isn't exactly doing much to lower my stress levels, thank you.

If it's 3 a.m. it must be Friday....
