Today has been an interesting day, a sort of John Hughes-esqe gathering of friends, with much goofing off, letting childishness run free, and quality time with friends, tempered by the knowledge that soon some of these friends will be gone, an uncertainty about life and relationships, plus a fear of bee stings. "Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up/These are the best days of our lives/The only thing that matters is just following your heart/And eventually you'll finally get it right" -The Ataris, "In This Diary" Tunes: "In This Diary", The Ataris; "American Girl", Tom Petty; "People Like Us", Talking Heads.

The man picked up box of strike-anywhere matches from a small table, opened it slowly, and took one out. It wasnt as if the cabin would be missed. Noone had lived there for years. Anyway, there had been a lot of rain recently, so the surrounding woods wouldn't be that far burnt before the fire department arrived. He struck the match, and tossed it onto a pile of evergreen branches he'd piled in the middle of the floor. They caught almost instantly, and he stared hungrily into the flame. The mesmerizing patterns kept his attention as the fire spread slowly across the floor. Smiling, he let the light and heat wash over him as he backed toward the door. Soon the curtains and walls caught fire, too, and as a picture frame fell, it landed with a clank, shattering his concentration. His eyes shot over to the noise, and felt a rush of mixed pleasure and horror as he saw the obvious mistake he'd overlooked. The cabin had a gas stove. Torn between the thrill of the imminent explosion and a primal need for self-preservation, instinct won and he burst out the door, running as fast as his legs could carry him, looking over his shoulder to watch- and tripped and fell right into a large rock. His arm made an audible snap as it broke, but he barely felt the pain. Not even bothering to try and get up, his eyes were still fixed on the burning house. Any second now... The small wooden cabin erupted in an enormous fireball, sending splinters and chunks of wood everywhere. He was found five hours later, dead and burnt beyond recognition. Unknown, unidentified, the media had had a field day. But the story dried up quickly, and soon the only memorial of the stranger was a scorched hole in the ground.

Wow. Really good weekend. Friday's dance went exceptionally well: lots of people, good music, people having fun. Then, yesterday was Armadillo day at NWU. ^_^ 'Dillo day, for those of you who don't live around here or ust aren't familiar with the tradition, is a sort of scheduled mass Spring party, the major events of which are the concerts. I dropped in and out, and got to see local band The Capacity, Steel Train, and Idlewild in the afternoon, all of which were great fun, especially The Capacity and Idlewild. Then, in the evening, I returned and saw Blackalicious and The Crystal Method. (Mental note: Never ever ever ever eat pizza before you go to a rave.) The TCM show was definitely the high point of the day; A very intense hour and a half of loud techno, light shows, glowsticks, water bottles, and crowdsurfers, culminating in a fireworks display lighting up over a premier of one of their new tracks. And did I mention that this entire function was free? ^_^ Much fun all around.
