    I don’t get bored. I never have. Do you know what it feels like?


  2. liquidquick says:

    unfortunately, yes. i’m well versed in the many shades of boredom. hence the apology to the self inherent in the title. and then the little ‘fuck you’ to the self inherent in the tagline.

  3. kimtelas says:

    But, but…what does it feel like? What are the shades? I want to know.

    Fuck you inherent in the tag line? Oh…

    So, does that mean no description?


  4. liquidquick says:

    the shades of boredom (of which there are five) are monochromatically grey. if you were to line them up, one next to another, you would just barely be able to make out a subtle difference in gradation between the first and the last. the leftmost tastes of ash, when you stand too close to a fire and the wind blows in your face. next is the fleeting memory that your conciousness just can’t quite hold onto; it is the malevolent rebellion of the part of your mind that wishes you harm. in the center are three voices, so achingly close to harmony that to listen would bring madness. rightward is the dream of a path, where the scenery never changes and the destination is never reached. and the farthest shade is overwhelming disappointment; knowing that same action brings same result, but being unwilling to break the cycle.

    and then you move on. or you don’t. – world keeps spinning either way

    Wow, a present at 1:27 AM after grading literature papers that evoked visions of slitting my wrists or burning the papers. Also, an editing job which was fine and fancy free.

    Thank you!

    Now I feel like I am truly missing something…..

    The no shades or ashes here Kim.

  6. liquidquick says:

    of the two options
    burning papers is better
    then slicing the wrists

    just don’t breathe the ash
    and start upon the journey
    through shades of boredom

    I think I got high just reading the above exchange between the two of you. That is awesome.
