Loose Ends [Jun. 21st, 2003|01:34 pm]
rejectomorph
They've gone, and it's quiet, but I'm groggily awake now and don't know what to do with myself. They only cleaned the front yard, and will probably be back later to do the back, so there'd be no point in my trying to get to sleep again anyway. At least it's gotten a bit cooler today, and a bit breezy.

I had a weird dream in which I was making entries and comments here and after posting them realized that I'd left out apostrophes or included apostrophes where they don't belong. Furthermore, I found that I was unable to edit the entries, and had the feeling that something terrible would happen to me because of it. Grammar paranoia! Now I'm resisting the urge to go back over my old entries and comments and see if the dream had any basis in reality.

I think I'll go sit outdoors and close my eyes and pretend I'm at the beach. Longest day of the year, and now it's even longer because I'm awake too early.

It's the comma ninjas...

I'm not gay, but I suddenly have this overwhelming desire to have your babies. Bear witness to your friendification at the hands of the Mighty Nealok because you, sir, can string together a fine sentence. I found your jounral while patrolling LiveJournal for people with Henry Rollins in their interests. Friend me. Don't friend me. It makes no difference to me; I just want to read more of your prose.

PS-- Wherefore all the Caillebotte? I, too, have a penchant for the "lesser" artists of the period, but I was curious as to why you seem so specifically enamored of M. Caillebotte.

Re: It's the comma ninjas...

Greetings. Yes, Caillebotte. I had never heard of him until I ran across some scans of his work posted at Webshots, about two years ago. When I started this journal a short time later, I stole a bunch of the thumbnails from those albums to be my user icons.

I'm not sure I could explain exactly what it is about Caillebotte that I find so engaging. He seems to me more truly modern than the other impressionists. There is a certain sharpness to his style that makes his paintings seem as though they are going on right now. I guess they have presence, in every sense of the word.
