LOST: one week-end / As long as I don’t have to wear one of her shirts / Heavy dreaming

Sdtrk: ‘La réciprocité’ by The new lines

This week-end, I’m currently ill. Over the course of this past Winter, I’d dodged so many bullets as far as not catching everyone else’s specific plagues, but now that it’s Springtime, and the temperature in SE Michigan has been careering up and down like a rollercoaster, I suppose it was inevitable that I got something. So at the time of this writing (Saturday eve), instead of hanging out wi’ t’ lads at t’ Playhouse as I usually do, I’m getting up to speed with episodes of Kamen rider 555 and Kakumeiki Valvrave, while under the influence of my patented ‘lurgey cocktail’ (generic equivalent DayQuil chased with two tabs of Alka-seltzer). Writing and editing posts in this state probably isn’t entirely recommended, but if Hunter S. Thompson could get away with it, then so can I. Although I’m certain he was blowing his nose less.

Last week-end, however, those of us in SE Michigan experienced another brief but much-appreciated glimpse of Springlike weather last week-end, so Sidore persuaded me to use a photoshoot idea she’d thought of, where she’s wearing one of my shirts. Well, I say ‘wearing’.

Few things are as stimulating as seeing your lover flounce around in one of your shirts, no? Not surprisingly, Elena made me promise that I’d get a solo shoot of her in with the next bout of nice weather. DOLLS: constantly demanding!

And late last year, I’d run across a trailer for a student film entitled ‘Traumfrau‘ (Dream girl), directed by a German bloke by the name of Oliver Schwarz. I’d reached out to him to see if I could review his work, and so far, I’m awaiting a response. Looks somewhat promising, though!

As the film takes place in Germany, or at the very least, Europe, Jenny, the affictitious lass in the relationship, seems to be either a Mecadoll, or some variant thereof. Be sure to lift with your knees, and not with your back, Dirk!

Right; I’m off to follow Dirk’s example in the photo above, and collapse headlong into bed. At least if I’m unconscious, I won’t mind everything tasting like iron filings so much. I might well dream that I’m eating a car!

    She’ll appreciate your sentiment. :-) I’ll be uploading the photos to The Usual Location later this eve/whenever I wake up again, so there’s that to look forward to!…

    Meh, down with flu; well, maybe your body want just to knock a few days off, and has conveniently chosen to so to over the weekend …
    I hope the car is at least fresh and crunchy.

    Oh, and thanks for new pictures from Sidore. This causes a little trouble here as some dolls have now even on more arguments to be disappointed about me, but that is strictly my problem.

    Dear Davecat !
    We hope, youre well soon.
    The weather gone nuts. I saw scenes from the Oklahoma ( home of that great country singer Carrie Underwood – she spend $ 1 mio for the victims ? )tornado.
    Here we had so lot of rain, you need in some parts a boat on the road.
    It`s time to create artificial weather.

    Great photos – only a bit small – I need a magnifying glass !

    I`m always sceptical with european films.
    If you want to feel bad and diturbed, you can watch one – but I better like to be entertained and get a good mood and choose some hollywood stuff.

    We wrote our thoughts about fast running time down – I think 3 posts back.
    Did you read that ? – we are so slow…

    tchon –
    I think your theory about my body wanting its own holiday is correct, but only partially. Between sleeping 4/5ths of a day away, but not really sleeping, as I was drenched in sweat and sneezing so much that it was waking Sidore up; that’s not much of a holiday. That’s like going on a tour of a coal mine; that’s the kind of holiday it was, for the most part. But when I wasn’t cursing this meat body, it wasn’t bad, having some time to myself!
    The car was delicious, by the way. It was a Volvo! Very wholesome. :-)

    And if you don’t get some new pics of your lasses, they may stage an uprising. And you don’t want that!

    Herr and Frau Synthetik
    At the time of this writing, I’m actually like 98% better now! My head is still congested a wee bit, and there’s still some aches here and there, but I’m doing better than I was, so thanks. :-)

    You’re right; the weather has been mental the past… well, since this time last year, really. It’s beyond out of hand. Fron Japan’s 2011 tsunami, to the flooding in New York (last year) and Illinois (this year), to Oklahoma’s tornados, and the Elbe swelling its banks, it’s looking like the safest place these days is in a space colony somewhere between the Earth and the Moon. Maybe Gaia is finally recognising humanity as the fleas infesting her hide, and she’s trying her best to shake us off. Can’t blame her, really…

    See, I like the bleak and dour qualities of a lot of European films! Most of my DVDs are of films from Europe! Well, a third. But still! I think you and Miss July would do well in the States. Maybe you and I should swap living spaces for a year! Sidore, Elena, and I can follow the dream of being in Germany for a bit, and you and Miss July can enjoy all that SE Michigan has to offer! Which isn’t a lot, but at least it’s (geographically) closer to Hollywood than Berlin is. :-)

    I may have missed your previous post, but I will attend to it tomorrow! (It’s bedtime here.)
