"Do you ever wonder what it would be like to not exist?"

"No."

"That's a shame. Not at all?"

"N - Oh wait a second, do you mean, do I ever wonder what it would be like if I were to suddenly, inexplicably, irreversably just - cease to exist? To stop, and not start again? To cease to be? To one second be part of this karmical cosmic force that we call life (for the sake of simplicity), and to take solace in the fact that, I, am instigating a reaction to every single one of my actions, and (in accordance with the laws of Physics) in turn, fortifying the very notion that I, do, on some level, exist? And the next second, just, well, not?"

"Yes! Exactly that."

"Mmmmno."

"Damn."

"Yeah."

"I do."

"What?"

"Wonder what it would be like to not exist. I think it would be nice, sometimes."

"Well that's just stupid. You can't sometimes exist and sometimes not. You either do, or you don't."

"Shame. Well I think I would like to stop. Existing I mean."

"Well it won't happen by you just wishing on it."

"Oh no?"

"No. An infinity of nos, in fact."

"Let's try it."

"Let's not."

"........"

"I said, let's not."

"........"

"Oh dear god, you're trying aren't you."

"........"

"Look I know you still exist, you ponce, I can see your full stops."

"........"

"Is it working yet?"

"........"

"It actually worked?"

"........"

"Oh god it actually worked, he's figured out how to go about ceasing one's own existence utilising naught but the power of his own mind and the untapped reserves of his brain that have as of yet been unexplored by the rest of mere humanity and I am in fact talking to myself."

"CHOOO!"


"?"

"So sorry, was waiting to sneeze."

"Jolly good."

"Where were we?"

"I dunno, it's your dialogue."

"I was not existing."

"No, you were existing, you could still see your punctuation marks."

"Bollocks."

"Quite."

"I bet I could, you know."

"What?"

"Not exist. I think it would be nice. I can remember what it was like. It was peaceful."

"No you can't. That's rubbish. No one can remember what it was like before they didn't exist. That's physically impossible."

"Well I can!"

"O rly?"

"Ya rly."

"You know, in standing here, nattering incessently to me, you are by a great and inadvertant misfortune, proving nothing but the all consuming fact that YOU DO EXIST and that all the holding your breath in the world will not change that fact. And also; NO WAI."

"What do you know, you're just one side of an internal running dialogue!"

"So are you!"

"Touche."

"I thought so."

What does this mean? Oh god PLEASE HELP ME

A while ago now recieved a gift from a good friend of mine. I am obsessed with werewolves, and always have been, and for a long time have wanted something wolf related, say a fang or a claw or something. I have never bought anything, for fear of accidentally supporting the trade in illegal animal parts first hand. But this is (kind of) different.

My friend got it from his brother, who won it on an auction, from a man who found it on a small market stall in Surin, Thailand. I am very fond of it. It is a cut of wolf bone, made into a pendant. I tend to wear it on an almost daily basis.

It has some symbols carved into it. I am would very much like to know what they mean. I did hold out for a while and not wear it because I didn't know what it meant, but I caved after a while.

I do not know what language it is in. I do not know if it is a language, or runes, or pictures, or what. They could be for protection, luck, lycanthropy, or they could be a proverb. Hell they could be a curse for all I know. I have asked many people, and have not come much closer to discovering what it means. Apparantly, it looks like it is not Thai. Though it is similar to their alphabet.


Here are some photos of it.

And because the symbols might be hard to see, I oh so skillfully (not) reproduced them in paint.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I believe that the symbols are the same on each side, and only differ slightly because of bad handwriting or something.

Now, can anyone help me? Even a little bit? Anything would be good...what language it might be, or is definately not, has anyone seen anything like this before, anything at all. Does anyone know anyone who I can email who deals in this kind of stuff? I am quite desparate to find out the meanings, as I have had it for a long time now.

I have asked everyone...I mean everyone. I have asked all my friends. All my family. I have emailed the person it was bought from. I have emailed several people who specialise in occult and individual artifacts too. I have also asked almost any random person I am introduced to. And I have also posted this all over the internet, I mean, aaalll over, asking for help.

I am still firmly at square one.

It is taunting me, that is what it is doing. It is my one way ticket to insanity. It thwarts me on a daily basis.

People tell me to go look on Thai alphabet websites, which although I appreciate them responding, this is about as useful as a cat up a tree. Please don't tell me to look at Thai sites, unless you know exactly what the symbols are. They might not even be Thai.

I now have this feeling, that it is actually gibberish. I think that it was done by some sadistic bastard, sitting there, scratching random lines into the bone, chuckling to himself; "Hah hah! Those stupid foriegners are going to run themselves ragged, like decapitated chickens, trying to figure out what my completely random and meaningless scratches mean! Ah ha ha ha haaaa!" While his fez hat wobbles on his head while he laughs himself silly....

I don't know why he is wearing a fez hat. He just is.

If anyone has any ideas, I would be extremely grateful. Actually no I wouldn't, if anyone can actually tell me what these mean, or what language it is, I will throw off my anti religion status, and pronounce you my new God. I may even give you a shrine. No no, I mean it. I will be your loyal follower.

The bastard has made me waste, well, months of my life, that I could have spent doing things other then waving a wolf bone pendant in random people's faces going "Hi! You don't know me. But do you know what this means?"

*coughs*

Pleeaase heeeelllpp meeeee!!

You know apparantly, there are tribes out there, which are made up of, like, only twenty people, and they have their very own language. A unique language and culture all of their very own, for only a few dozen people. Apparantly there are a lot of these small tribes scattered across the world. And they are dying out slowly because of outside interference.

I suspect my pendant has been inscribed by one of these small tribes made up of only twenty people, and that tribe, has since died out. Thus radically altering my chances of ever discovering it's true meaning, from insanely slim, to completely impossible.

I - I think I want to cry now.

Blogs I'd like you to see

Here are some blogs I would like for you to see. If you appreciate good writing on internet blogs, or just in general, check some of these out. As well as being well written, they are hilarious enough to make me laugh like a moron. In this modern internet based world, there are millions of internet blogs. I will admit to following several, not all of them belonging to people I actually know.

I have been neglecting my own recently, due to being busy, boring, and having a lack of anything remotely interesting to say. There's no point in talking in these things if you have nothing to say. I often see those blogs where people just..explain what they did that day. They usually go something like
'Today I went to the dentist, and he told me that my teeth were pretty good. I was, like, really happy, because I thought that I might need a filling! But I don't, so I feel better now. And then I went to H&M and found this really cool top, it was £10 marked down from £15, so, I, like, got it! And then I went home and read for a while. Pretty boring day, really.'


...no kidding. I hate blogs like those...no one wants to know every mundane thing you do, every day. Unless, that is, they are your stalking you/bored enough to terminate their own existence through ALL CONSUMING SHEER BOREDOM/both at the same time.

Mmhmm.

These ones are different. If these people tell you that they went to H&M and bought a reduced top, I will, in fact, eat my hat. I'll eat several of them, actually.

I found the list on Lebatron's blog, and added a description to each. Links are below.




Lebatron's Blog. - Genius. Lebatron is highly funny, as well as being refreshingly well spoken/written/whatever the crap the term is in reference to the typed word. I have not finished reading everything yet (there is rather a lot) but I do appreciate his dark and snide humour and well placed sarcasm. I do like and recommend this blog. He may well be pleased to read this, or instead he may feel compelled to make retching noises, but oh well.




Tucker Max's Blog. - While I in no way promote or advocate or approve of such behaviour, it is rather..funny. To quote the author himself:

"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole.

I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead.

But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way. I share my adventures with the world."

Reading some of the stories while eating is inadvisable.

Enjoy.




Tard Blog. - This blog was written by a teacher named Riti Sped. She is now retired, but Riti Sped was a special education teacher, who worked with children with varying, yet always severe, mental disabilities. She would be nothing but incredibly kind and supportive to her students while working, and I have no reason to believe that she was not an excellent teacher. However, her occupation is undeniably, rather emotionally taxing, difficult, and stressful as hell. This blog was her own harmless outlet for her pent up annoyances and stress that was brought on by her daytime job. Someone with such biting wit, excellent writing skills , and a hilarious internal running monologue, must be made known to the world. She is one of the few people in the world who realise that complaining, is in fact, an art form, a sentiment I wholly agree with and promote. I would like to point out once more that her thoughts written at the end of the day do not reflect her professionalism during working hours.





Maddox's Blog. - To quote the author:

This page is about me and why everything I like is great. If you disagree with anything you find on this page, you are wrong.

Maddox likes to write. And complain. And complain well. This combination is pleasing to me. Lookit.





There's a few more I plan to check out and possibly recommend in the near future. In the meantime though, enjoy.

I return

I return. Was not away for as long as I thought I'd be.

I was going to write a list of the things I have been up to, but it's too hot to sit here and this abominable sunshine has melted the remaining few cognitive processes that I still had functioning. Anyway, some parts of my adventures involved a spiders nest.

Some parts didn't.

It's a good job I'm not scared of spiders.

Cookies are to be awarded to the first person to notice I'm back.

Random Shoutouts

I have a few things to say. Some are to specific people who I know will read and acknowledge, some are to anyone who cares.

Firstly, to Luke. Aka The Reverse Victorian Woman, My Flatmate, The Small Creature, The Kiwi Penis. (don't ask) Have a great time in the Lake District, and take care when you spend your summer in Spain. If you don't go into at least one art museum I will kill you. Also, since you asked me to mention you in my blog, if you don't comment within a month or so, I will track you down and kill you some more. I know where to find you. I'll just follow the goddamned Lynx smell and the cookie crumbs. Like in a fairytale.

Aww.

But I will still kill you. Email me and tell me how you're doing, bitch.




To Aaron - I haven't written an entry on The Guns as of yet. I might do when inspiration hits me. Or I might just invent more girly names for them and emasculate you further. You just never know with me. But then again, you are an honourary woman/lesbian, so it's okay.




To Josh - it's a bun. It has always been a bun, and always will be. It is only a doughnut, if it has a hole in it. If it has no hole, it is a bun. This fact is now published on teh interwebz, therefore, it must be true.





To anyone who cares - Mixing tea and coffee together is good. It brings nice things to the tastebuds. My friend came up with the name 'Cofftee' which made me laugh for a shameful amount of time. Like, for more than five seconds. Alas.

Cofftee.

Mmmm.

Also, this is funny. Laugh.
