Gluten Free Ravioli   
11:56pm 11/10/2007
  I haven't been able to eat Ravioli in about 5 years. So being a fairly good cook having a pretty good knowledge of cooking with gluten free ingredients I thought I'd give it a shot. They turned out really great.

So here's what I'm eating right now, Gluten free Ravioli with Pesto Sauce.

Here's a shortest version I can come up with of how I made them.

I used one package of Chebe bread mix, made according to the directions

http://www.chebe.com

I used a rolling pin to flatten the dough out as thin as I could without making holes in it. Using a little corn starch (or any other GF flour) helped with rolling it out. I used a round cookie cutter to cut out circles from the dough. I put a spoonful of whole milk ricotta (with parsley, salt, pepper and parm added) in the middle of one circular piece of dough, put another circular piece of dough on top and pinched the outside edges together (like a pie). I brushed them with some olive oil and steamed them for about 10 minutes. I did them in batches cause I had to use a strainer in a big pot to do it. I used plastic to separate them in layers so they wouldn't stick together when they cooled off. I made them last week and kept them in the fridge for about 4 days like that and they were still really great. Even my boyfriend liked and who doesn't have Celiacs. He said they were the best Ravioli he'd ever had. haha. And he's pretty brutally honest with me so he'd tell me if they sucked. haha.
So I figure I'm going to try this at some point with some other fillings (meat, spinach, whatever) and I could use the same idea for dumplings or won tons. I was so excited with myself when I made them the first time. lol.
Hope everyone enjoys!

Like anyone really reads this   
06:56pm 09/08/2006
  Myspace is gay today. Someone pay for my livejournal account. I'm too lazy and broke to get to the bank to be able to pay for it.
I'm going to have a lot of free time this week with not much of anything to do.
I feel anxious right now and I don't know why cause I woke up in an awesome mood.
I did figure out one thing, steroids and PMS lead to me being a very bitchy person. I need to learn to think rationally sometimes and be less emotional.
Lesson of the year is, patience. Hopefully I will have some help with that one because I have never been a patient person. I have always said though that balance in life has been a goal of mine. Having people around that help to balance me is nice.
I don't really know what to write about right now. I have a headache for some reason. I slept for almost 24 hours straight. It's crazy. I feel like I could have slept forever last night.
So.... people need to get in touch with me. I know I've been kind of recluse but it doesn't mean I don't want to see or talk to people.
So I guess I'll give "shout outs" or something since I don't know much of a way to get in touch with some of you people.

Rachel- I miss you dear. I've gotten all of your messages and haven't had time to reply. Sorry. A lot has been going on. Call me when you get a chance. I am off all day on Sunday.

Jenn- Call me some time soon or I'll get in touch with you.

Misty- I doubt you even read this but I've tried to find some way to get in touch with you. I don't really know how. I miss you though.

Griff- I don't know if you read my lj but get in touch with me. I lost your number and I'd really love to talk to you. Miss you sooooooo much.

Heather- Hope everything is getting better for you. Hope the kids are doing well.

Belinda- We need to hang out again some time soon. I always look for you when I go to Necto. Hope everything's going well.

Carrie V- We should hang out some time girl. You know I'm just a hop skip and a jump away.

Bradd- Play more Velvet Acid Christ or I will kill you. hehe j/k

Coffey- Hope life is getting a little better for you. I know you have a lot of shit to deal with.

Cecilia- You and your brother need to come back up to Chili's to see me! Maybe I will convince Dan to bring his dog up to you cause boy does it need to be groomed, it looks like a mop. haha.

Erica- Where have u gone? I have not seen you in forever. Hope everything is well.

Jacob- Things will get better. Don't stress. I'm sure I will be seeing you soon

Gaypants- You're a punk. lol. I just thought I'd let you know

Greg- Hope everything works out for you with the job. I know we'll keep in touch

Logan- We'll have to get in touch soon. Eventually I will get my ass back out to Philly and see you


I'm sure I missed someone. I know, I don't always keep in touch with all of you but I'm always thinking about you.

Astrology Report for my brother   
11:11pm 18/06/2006
  The Astrology resport for my brother Ulysses born on Saturday June 17 2006 10:45 pm


Sun Sign
Originally referred to as your star sign, your Sun sign represents the sign of the Zodiac that the Sun was in at the time of your birth. The Sun rules willpower and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about.

Your Sun sign represents the main direction and focus you want your life to take and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It represents your personal honesty and integrity, your ability to command respect and authority and your capacity to impress and influence others.

The beginning and end dates for each of the signs can vary from year to year. We suggest you take a look at our cusp page for greater information if you were born on a cusp.

Gemini
May 21 - June 21
Gemini is the third Sign of the Zodiac, and those born under this Sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That's because they love to talk! It's not just idle chatter with these folks, either. The driving force behind a Gemini's conversation is their mind. The Gemini-born are intellectually inclined, forever probing people and places in search of information. The more information a Gemini collects, the better. Sharing that information later on with those they love is also a lot of fun, for Geminis are supremely interested in developing their relationships. Dalliances with these folks are always enjoyable, since Geminis are bright, quick-witted and the proverbial life of the party. Even though their intellectual minds can rationalize forever and a day, Geminis also have a surplus of imagination waiting to be tapped. Can a Gemini be boring? Never!

Since Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you're not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who's showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless.

They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. It's this characteristic which readily suggests the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign. Mutable folks are flexible and go with the flow. Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. It's a good thing, too, when you consider their myriad interests. The downside of such a curious mind, however, can be a lack of follow-through. How much can any one person do, anyway?
---------------------------------------------------------------
Rising Sign
Technically speaking, your rising sign -- or ascendant -- reflects the zodiac sign that was ascending on the Eastern horizon at the moment you took your first breath in this world. This is why an exact birth time is so vital to finding your accurate rising sign. Located on the cusp of the first house of your astrological chart -- or at the nine o'clock position -- the rising sign can exert an influence almost as powerful as your Sun and Moon signs.

If you were to think of your Sun sign as your soul -- your inner personality and potential -- and your Moon sign as your heart -- your emotional core -- then you could say that your rising sign is your physical self or the face you present to the world. For example, though your Sun sign might be Taurus, your rising sign could very well be Gemini. While you're feeling laid-back, others will tend to see you as a ball of nervous energy and cerebral wit.

At times, your rising sign may act as a mask, hiding some aspect of your inner self you don't feel like revealing. What's your mask? How do others see you? Find out with your rising sign.

Capricorn Rising:

If your Rising Sign is Capricorn, people would be shocked if you act eccentrically, as Sea Goats exude an old-fashioned, authoritative aura. Even if you feel like the life of the party, others expect you to be the picture of industriousness, the boss figure with an impeccible sense of decorum and tradition. You may intimidate others with your intense demeanor, but they'll look to you for order. Negatively, Caps can come across as pessimistic and hypercritical. If you can figure out how to use the Capricorn influence to your advantage, you could get your foot in almost any door.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moon Sign
Do your emotions send you into a spin on a daily basis or is your cycle of highs and lows slower, more even? The great reflector in the heavens may also be your best mirror into your own cyclical nature.

Since the Moon goddess looks after the garden and the home, your Moon Sign can help you see how and where you ground yourself in your domestic sphere. Are you the gypsy, always picking up and moving? Or do you resist any change in your environment and lose it when somebody wants to trim a branch in the yard?

Knowing where your Moon Sign falls will help you gauge whether howling at the moon is just your natural voice or whether you're prone to lunacy and need to have an eye kept on you.


Your Moon is in Pisces

Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, you have an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on being telepathic. You are extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - be it human or animal -suffer. Because of your kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people in pain or confusion are drawn to you for help, which you readily give. Sometimes your softheartedness is taken advantage of.

You are a gentle, poetic soul and have a great love and affinity for music. Because many of your feelings are nebulous and vague and you cannot easily verbalize how you experience life, music seems a natural language for you. You are also tremendously romantic and are often "in love with love".

Kathy Bates, actress
Sarah Michelle Gellar, actress
Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis
Cybill Shepherd, actress
Dorothy Hamill, skating

---------------------------------------------------------------
Mercury (Communication) Sign
Nothing is more important at work than communication skills -- they can make or break a business deal, a salary negotiation or a hiring interview. Find out what your Mercury -- or Communication -- Sign is and what that says about your talents and challenges.

Your Mercury is in Cancer

You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to you. You are empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for you are a sensitive listener and deeply interested in a person's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you are drawn to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are not especially confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share your thoughts in small, intimate groups. You enjoy keeping a diary or personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.

Who else has Mercury in Cancer?
Martha Stewart, television host
Diana, Princess of Wales
Kathy Bates, actress
Michelle Kwan, skating champion
Bill Cosby, comic, actor
Tim Allen, comic, actor
Tom Hanks, actor
David Duchovny, actor
Michael J. Fox, actor
---------------------------------------------------------------
Chiron (Healing) Sign

Astrologers often call Chiron, a planetoid orbiting the outer realms of our Solar System, the Wounded Healer. This celestial body takes its name from a Centaur from Greek mythology who, after being abandoned by his parents, matured into a wise and giving healer and teacher. Because Zeus, god of all of the gods, was his father, Chiron was immortal. When beset upon by great pain from a poison arrow, Chiron prayed to the gods to let him die. His wish was granted. In his life, he overcame personal issues and used the lessons learned to help and heal others. Coinciding with Chiron's discovery in 1977 was a surge of interest in New Age healing and holistic therapies; Chiron became a natural symbol for healing through pain that has been borne. A more recent example of a Chironic influence would be celebrities or athletes who use their personal tribulations to raise awareness -- like Christopher Reeve with his work toward a cure for paralysis or Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong's fundraising efforts for cancer research.

On a personal level, the greatest pain or burden one bears -- usually in childhood -- and eventually overcomes is the source of great wisdom and healing power for others. Where Chiron finds itself in your chart is an indication of lessons you must learn and the lessons you may one day be able to teach.

Chiron in Aquarius
If Chiron falls in Aquarius in your chart, you bear the pain of alienation, of isolation from those around you. No matter how you try to ingratiate yourself into a crowd -- through being yourself or acting the part of an insider -- it seems like you just can't fit in. At the heart of Aquarius is the need to belong to a group and feel part of some larger significant force. When Chiron is in Aquarius, you feel so outside of things, so eccentric and yet lost in the crowd that you may pull back completely, affecting aloofness when really you're yearning to approach people and share your energy. Rather than pulling away or pretending to be someone you're not, Chiron in Aquarius compels you to be yourself and cherish your eccentricity. Once you know that you have consequence and that you, as an individual, can make a difference, you open yourself (and your wound) up to the world and share what you have learned from your pain. Give your time to causes that encourage expression of individuality, like support groups for those dealing with their sexuality or to progressive causes that champion human rights.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Uranus (Rebellion) Sign
Uranus is a generational planet, which means that its changing impact affects people who were born during a seven-year span. Uranus is the planet of revolution. Its influences can be traced to world wars in the early part of the 20th century and to the sit-ins and protests of the 1960s. The placement of Uranus in your chart is demonstrative of what areas of your life and generation are straining to be free of the conventional. The location of Uranus during any given seven-year span adds personality, willfulness and a dash of rebellion to each generation, leading it away from taking the same path as those who came before.

Capricorn
Uranus doesn't want to spend much time in Capricorn, but it does the best it can with its seven-year span. Capricorn likes the traditional way of doing things but, with the influence of Uranus, acknowledges that perhaps modernization isn't all that bad. Your generation might have, early on, some problems associated with authority. The tension that you feel may be a result of Uranus struggling for more influence. You'll make changes to the world around you during your life, but they will lean more toward the useful and practical than the extravagant and monumental. You might feel insecure about your future, so you may find yourself making certain changes for the sole purpose of ensuring that your life will always be comfortable and secure. You understand, though, that any changes you make now will influence your whole life.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Neptune (Spiritual) Sign
Are you attracted to the mystical, given to metaphysical musings? Or do you let logic and intuition govern your sense of spirituality? Your Neptune Sign is the master of all that is gauzy and opaque in your life. The ruler of the seas is fluid, and so many things about this Planet are changeable and illusory.

Neptune rules what you cannot touch. Do you hide behind smoke and mirrors, always putting on a mask to confront the public eye? This Planet affects everything from fantasy to fashion. Do you prefer mysteries, science fiction or the paranormal? Your Neptune Sign may tell you why you search for answers in the night sky or consider yoga the best outlet for your imagination.


Your Neptune is in Aquarius

You are part of a 14 year group of people that are progressive and broad-minded in religious philosophy and spiritual attitude. You are not a mystical bunch, but you are not skeptics or cynics of mysticism either. However, you generally do not follow a religious philosophy unless it appeals to your sense of logic and reason. The more ancient and intuitively based religions are of little interest to your age group, and religions undergo much "modernizing" during your lifetime.

Your generation blurs the distinction between science and mysticism; your scientific discoveries are carried on with a spirit of awe and wonder, and the discoveries that are made only serve to increase that sense of awe and wonder. The dry, academic approach to science fades out during your generation.

Science fiction is also popular with your age group. Also popular are abstract artistic styles, which reflect your progressive imagination.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pluto (Power) Sign
Pluto is one of the Planets in our solar system that has a generational influence. It takes between twelve and twenty-eight years for Pluto to pass through a single sign, so its effects are very broad and more likely to impact the world at large than any certain individual. Pluto is a transformational Planet. It rules the inevitable changes that take place in the cycle of life -- from birth to death and all the important decisions in between. The location of Pluto during one of its extended spans is important to you as an individual only if your personal birth chart has aspects to this Planet. The real influence of Pluto has to do with how your generation uses its power and handles new developments that sprout up through their lives.

Sagittarius
The generation born under the placement of Pluto in Sagittarius may work, in a way, to get rid of many of the outdated traditions of generations past. This generation may develop a spiritual bent, but shun the organized religions of their grandparents. Instead, this generation may develop personal systems of belief far removed from anything that came before. Spirituality won't be the only thing this generation explores. Part of developing a higher viewpoint will come through travel into space and investigations under the sea. There will be a lot of educational reform during this time, as well, with a focus on developing the scope and quality of higher education. This generation may very well revolutionize the way we teach and learn. They could take everyone to a place previously unimagined.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ceres (Mothering) Sign
What's your Ceres Sign?
Not only do the planets and the stars influence your life -- four asteroids play their part, too.


How do you satisfy yourself and placate those around you? Your Ceres Sign tells you how you take care of yourself and others, whether it’s through food (Ceres is the goddess of agriculture) or in other ways. Are you tender or brisk, attentive or hands-off, protective or laissez-faire? See what your Ceres sign tells you.

Ceres was also known as Demeter, the mythological mother who worried so much about her daughter Persephone, held prisoner in the underworld by Hades that she caused winter to fall over the world during the annual months when Persephone resides in the underworld.

Your Ceres Sign helps you use your own style of caring to best help yourself and others.


Your Ceres is in Aquarius

Ceres-Aquarius retains the natural traits which makes the Aquarian Sun such a world-beater. You are not afraid to try new things, to innovate and discover, and that makes you a very powerful woman indeed. Instead of lazing around during your down time you'll want to nurture yourself and be out chasing your dreams, no matter how outrageous or unorthodox they may seem to others. You like to try new things and do things differently -- you may be the first to jump on new methods or technologies. Use your powerful brain and surging ambition in your free time and you'll be happily satisfied with your off-the-beaten-path style. Others see you as a natural leader, with the power and conviction to let you help others to realize their dreams. You support those you love and see merit in even their craziest ideas. Friends and associates will look to you for a shoring up, ensuring that you're in on the ground floor of new schemes. You don't intend to play the boss or team leader in new schemes, but may end up leading anyway as others fall behind your zeal and courage.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Juno (Soulmate) Sign
Juno
Are you soulmate material? Knowing your Juno Sign may help you understand your ability to form lasting relationships. Long-term partnerships, be they business or personal, friendly or more intimate, are a challenge and Juno provides clues.

Juno, also known as Hera, was the mythological wife of Jupiter, or Zeus. Her influence affects the emotional climate of those relationships that last over the long haul. Do you need independence? Lots of attention? Somebody who’s sensitive to your temperment?

Which kind of partner suits you best? Wise women can check with Juno to identify compatible partners and better understand their own needs in a partnership.

Your Juno is in Leo

A long-term relationship with a Juno in Leo is as exciting as an affair. You'll never retreat into boring contentment; instead you crave variety and drama. You liven things up with romantic dates, flowers, chocolates and plenty of romance. Your partner will never feel taken for granted as long as they pay Juno-Leo plenty of attention and pile on the flattery. This love of drama, however, may get you problems you never bargained for -- you may prefer arguments over peace, thinking peace boring and wishing for excitement. Better choose a partner with the same dramatic flair or you'll wear out less tempestuous types. You need your relationship to keep growing -- make sure that you share values and interests with your partner and you can grow together. You are loving and committed to your partner and will keep your relationships fresh and hot with spontaneity and plenty of sensual affection.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pallas (Warrior) Sign
Pallas
Are you feisty when your territory is threatened, or are you a woman who prefers to meet conflicts with subtlety? Your Pallas Sign tells you how you choose your battles and how you go after what you want.

Greek goddess Pallas Athena (Minerva to the Romans), the protector of Athens, fought with Zeus' shield, the head of Medusa, and a thunderbolt. She utilized her cunning and strategy to win her battles.

Pallas compels you to stand up for your rights and your Pallas Sign can help you find the strength to turn setbacks into something you can use.


Your Pallas is in Capricornxx

Leading just comes naturally to you and you excel at showing others what needs to be done and setting them on the proper path. You're a natural authority, and will find yourself taking over any group which lets you do it! Others look to you as an authority, even those who are older and more experienced than you, because your natural confidence shows through whatever you do. Pallas-Capricorn is a superb fighter to have on any team -- you rally to causes in which you believe and see them through to the end. You're the first into battle and the last to leave the battlefield. The vague ideas and plans which others have are crystallized under your lead -- you excel at turning plans into reality with your firm practicality. You are gifted with drive, determination and plenty of ambition, both in your career and personal life. Others may occasionally see your authority as intrusive, but most will be more than willing to let you take charge as is your natural inclination.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Vesta (Sexuality) Sign
Vesta
How much energy do you invest in your sexuality? Do you give your all to others or hold back energy to accomplish personal goals? Are you a workaholic? Your Vesta Sign helps you define your relationship to sex and monitor your devotion to what you invest in.

In Roman mythology, Vesta is the goddess of the hearth, worshipped by Roman families as a household deity with sacred fires kept burning by virgins whose lives were devoted to tending the flame.

Are you a teacher or a student, a gentle flame or a raging conflagration? Check your Vesta Sign for your tendencies.

Your Vesta is in Leo

In typical Vesta in Leo fashion, you'll fight like a tiger to get what you want: creative freedom, pleasure, luxury and fun. Even more than that, Vesta-Leo craves control. You don't like anyone telling you what to do, and whoever's trying is no doubt wasting their breath, as you can't be ordered around. Creativity is very important to you, and it's likely you'll end up in a line of work which speaks to this creative wellspring. If you don't, if your fire and drama are quenched, you'll be a very sad Vesta-Leo indeed. But if you allow your creativity to shine through, your brilliance and magnetism are such that you'll find all around you drawn like moths to your flame. That in itself is very important to you -- you like to be admired for the gifts you have. But it can be a danger, too, if you allow your intensity to burn out the attentions of those who are made from calmer stuff. Vesta-Leos need to have fun. You don't need a boost to your ambitions and drive, what you need instead is to relax a bit. You'll find you have almost too many admirers to count, but Vesta-Leo is choosy about whom she allows in her bed, and you won't be swayed by someone you don't admire.

Attraction Factor
Did you know that there's a point on your astrological chart that can explain why you're attracted to certain types of relationship partners? By finding out your descendant -- or the sign that lays on the cusp of the seventh house on your birth chart -- you can reveal the motivations behind your attitudes toward marriage and partnership and better understand your instinctual attractions toward a particular kind of love mate. Since the descendant lies directly opposite your rising sign -- the sign that indicates the way the world perceives you -- it, in a way, represents the sort of person you feel will complete you, fill in the gaps in your life and help you to realize your full potential. It can also be thought of as sort of your alter ego, as the you that you show only to your most intimate partner.

Cancer Descendant

If Cancer lies on your Descendant, you're looking for a love mate who will free you from the emotional chains you lock yourself up in, someone whose warm, affectionate and protective nature will melt your chilly reserve. Since you have Capricorn Rising -- a Sign that signifies a need for control, caution and accountability -- you need a partner who gives freely of their love and their attention. You don't take much time for yourself because you're so worried about keeping up with your obligations, but you instinctually seek out lovers who pamper and spoil you, but who are also somewhat emotionally needy in their own right. When you fall in love, you tend to do so slowly and cautiously, fearful of losing control of your destiny; you'd be most content with someone with whom you can start a family and share a secure home.

You want get away, but you just don't know where to go. Or you're bored, and ideas just aren't happening. Sound familiar? Stop scanning the shelves at the video store, or flipping aimlessly through television channels because you don't know what you want to watch. Did you know that though Taurus adores epic tales, Aries craves short stories and sound bites? Simply choose your Sun Sign below and explore your Sign's preferences in everything from movies and music to television and travel. Let the Stars be your guide!

Books:
Bored easily and always ready to learn, the Twins will dive into short stories, educational books, fiction or cartoons. You'll read anything from Shakespeare to Updike to Simon Singh and finish off the day by going through C.S. Lewis' complete Chronicles of Narnia.


Career:
Ad writer, Announcer, Auctioneer, Author, Auto dealer, Book seller, Broker, Bus driver, Cartoonist, Commentator, Concierge, Correspondent, Courier, Debator, Dispatcher, Distrubutor, Driver, Franchiser, Illustrator, Impersonator, Information analyst, Information clerk, Interviewer, Journalist, Librarian, Linguist, Mail, carrier, Manicurist, Media personnel, Mime, Mimic, Narrator, News commentator, Novelist, Orator, Playwright, Printer, Reporter, Speech pathologist, Spokesperson, Taxi driver, Transcriber, Truck driver, Weather forecaster


Chocolates:
Makes their chocolate choice by sticking their finger in each piece.


Food:
Gemini is always on the go, so they're looking for food that they can pick up and run with or that they don't need to spend forever preparing. The Twins are fond of ginger and parsley. As an Air Sign, they're looking for variety.


Movies:
While you’re a voracious reader and an intellectual, you enjoy a laugh, too. A comedy with endless possibilities, like Groundhog Day or Sliding Doors, might make your evening. On the other hand, you can't go wrong with something that gives you pause for thought. Try out Pi or Being John Malkovich.


Music:
The Twins download MP3s with the best of them. Your CD collection looks like a timeline of randomness from the last several decades. You listen to the Go Gos, Duran Duran, the Goo Goo Dolls, and Oingo Boingo as the world was still learning of Danny Elfman. For fun, pop in Adam Sandler or Denis Leary.


Restaurants:
The intellectual and airy Twins like to keep dinner light. While fast food will do, you’re also willing to broaden your horizons by trying different types of food.


Sports:
The versatile and flexible Twins will enjoy sports played as a pair or any sort of sport that stretches the mind, such as doubles tennis, croquet, billiards or bobsledding.


Travel:
Denmark, Egypt, Greece, Iceland, Las Vegas, Sweden, Tonga


Television:
The Twins like little bits of everything, so you probably go for the MTV style of flash images and quick soundbites. Variety is the spice of life, so the remote never leaves your hands. When you want trivia, though, you know when Jeopardy or Who Wants to be a Millionaire is on.

Looks like we should get along great.
By the way, I find it a bit ironic that my dad says that Uly's face reminds him of one of those hologram cards that shows two different pictures, seeing as how he's a gemini.

I'm not really me anymore   
04:05pm 28/05/2006
  I'm not really me anymore. I am but I'm not. I haven't even been able to find the words to explain it lately and I haven't figured out how to deal with it. Moving away from VA was like cutting the last string that was holding me up. I'm afraid to really live anymore. I'm afraid to fail. I'm afraid to dream. Perhaps I don't have the confidence to get what I really want out of life anymore. I've always seemed to me independent and self sufficient. I'm not though. I'm frail like a flower that someone pulled up from the ground. I'm all withered up and crumbling inside. On the outside I still look pretty but inside I'm all dried up. I'm afraid that I might let someone touch me and I'll fall apart and turn to dust.
