According to my therapist Asbergers syndrome is being removed from the next DSM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diagnostic_and_Statistical_Manual_of_Mental_Disorders)

I heard that about a month ago on some radio program I was listening to, probably the BBC.

Good Lord, I'm surrounded by the flu.  Friends, neighbors, patients.  And I didn't have my shot this year.

Not influenza certainly but influenza isn't the only group of infectious microbes that are referred to as "flu".

I assume Mrs. Dick is referring to influenza however, though there is a pretty nasty stomach flu doing the rounds in Michigan, not sure if it's prevalent outside of the state at the moment.

 Had the stomach virus once, that was the worst, I'd take a month long flu over that any time.

The last real bad stomach bug I remember having is in my early 20s.  I was on the toilet and bending over a bucket at the same time, thought I was dying.

Lost almost 15 pounds too

Listening to Paul Simon's album "Graceland" for probably the first time in twenty years. Still finding it enjoyable.

Can you imagine what Terry Gilliam's Harry Potter would've looked like?

Unfinished?
FINE

So, a friend of mine is curating an open call contest for 2d visual (and that's key, visual, not performance) artists, here's a submission he received the other day:

Quote
Repentance
A solitary white room. A repentance ceremony. The room is filled with black and white images of dead children playing from several old televisions. An endless barrage of images.

Envahi. A sound, a hollow tapping, metronomical like a drum. A silver bowl filled with salt water (3 tsps of salt, 16 oz water) placed at my bare feet. I, my hair smeared back like a Bacchic virgin, am in a simple white dress, pure and chaste.
For the first twenty-four hours before the performance, I will enter silence and will begin meditation wherein I will watch constantly the images of the dead children in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Africa. During this time, I will meditate, pray, weep, while fixing my gaze on the images of the children. I will no longer feel deadened or unsurprised by the violence of these images: I will allow them to enter me, I will feel shame, I will weep for them, I will pray for them, I will take responsibility for them, I will beg for forgiveness. I will sleep on a bed of thorns.

After 24 hours of no disturbances, meditation, and praying, I will begin the performance. For three hours, I will sit in a stoic meditative silence, praying, mourning the violence and the dead children. I will whip myself in penance. I will ask for forgiveness. I will nonverbally ask that the viewers sit with me and experience the violence with me. I will implicate them, I will ask them to be witnesses – guilt, compassion, weeping. Upon the four hour, I will slowly eat raw, bloodied meat which signifies the children. My hands and dress will be bloodied.

After the fourth hour passes, I will induce vomiting by swallowing the water and will vomit on the floor. I will vomit up the bloodied meat, and urinate on the floor. The sounds of my retching and the stench of my waste will fill the room and the viewers will be forced to watch, smell, and partake in the sight. When I am finished, I will mop up the vomit with my dress. After this is completed, the refuse now spread across my pure robe, my vomit infecting order and cleanliness, I will rise from my bed of thorns and exit and the viewers can exit at their will.

Emesis, like these images – violent, reactionary, abject.

I think we have a winner, not sure how that will all be turned into prints but, you know, art will find a way.

Fuck pads. Screw everything about them, it's like wearing a dirty diaper all day. Tampons are where it's at.

Also my uterus is a total bitch today.
