In a vivid insight, a flash of black lightning, he saw that all life was parallel: that evolution was not vertical, ascending to a perfection, but horizontal. Time was the great fallacy; existance was without history, was always now, was always this being caught in the same fiendish machine.

Did anyone know that they sell "Homies" at Tacos el Ray? I am now the proud owner of a tall, pimp-like character dressed in a gray-and-black checkered suit. Naming suggestions are welcome, his brothers' names are Juan and Mercuchio.
Despite the tragic injury that I sustained on Monday at cross country practice, I am now able to walk on my ankle with minimal pain, and the swelling has gone down a lot. Hopefully I'll be able to practice again this Monday *fingers crossed*.
