Mr. Spock

*




In the dream Spock stood at the lectern, his hands gripping hard on either side. His head was slightly bowed and he looked up through the ridges of his forehead at the classroom. His lidless eyes bulged and it seemed to me that he had Down syndrome, perhaps, although
it was hard to say for sure. His face was red and his body shook with something like suppressed rage. The tin insignia on his uniform breast trembled against a field of blue polyester.

He was saying something about Melville's use of imagery in Moby Dick, but everybody knew he wanted to teach us physics instead. It wasn't in his nature to teach the humanities, but he struggled on.

He was at war with something inside of him, that much seemed clear, but there was nothing to do but watch him fight it out. It was not something that could be helped, it was what he was made for.

Namaste.

I thought my dreams were strange.

William Shatner has a new CD, In Search of Major Tom. He's kind of an interesting fella. Odd, but compelling none the less.

The fair is in town and i feel like I'm tripping.
Peace,

Ms. Moon-

Maybe not, but I think so.

In any case, it seems that for a moment, at least, I achieved a kind of Spock-hood.

he response is Chaussures Supra Pas Cher yes. The French fashion house has confirmed the Brit model because the face of that Boy Chanel handbag collection Chaussures Puma Pas Cher. [Karl Lagerfeld] has a crush during this unique, charismatic gal, who is both a model and musician, in a photo shoot a while ago, Chanel told WWD. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident. Alice Dellal represents an ideal incarnation of the which is unique around the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] definately not conformist notions of femininity.
Yep, Dellal is not really conventional. As well as her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is a drummer in the band Thrush Metal and will turn out to be found larking around the streets based in london with Pixie Geldof Chaussures Supra. Shes far from blonde bombshell Blake Lively, whos the prevailing face of Chanels Mademoiselle range, but Lagerfeld is recognized for his eclectic taste, previously casting Lily Allen for your Cocoon bag range in '09 Chaussures Puma. Furthermore, Alice's androgyny will work brilliantly together with the 'Boy' collection. How refreshing.
