Scribblings

Are any of you note takers? Always have a moleskine in your pocket? I am. Most of the time the scribblings are just that, and don't amount to anything. I post for your bemusement today's lunch time scribblings, here transposed. Please to Enjoy...

Quotes from "The Secret of Lost Things":

"Whiteness exerted a kind of sorcery."

"Acquisitiveness drove them, and envy - the ingredients of any passion."

"The books housed in one's first adult bookshelf are the geological bed of who we wish to be."

Random Words to think about/ try to use

recognition
autodidact
condign
impenitent

Musings

The perfect arms of my waitress, line of the tricep, definition, yet womanly, soft.

middle-distance gaze of the pretty 20-something waitresses in the limbo of no new customers, all drinks full; texting, texting, throwing words into the world, marking time... desultory chat, springing to life and smiles when the door chimes or a chair scrapes... my warm gaze following the small brunette who doesn't disguise her boredom, not the falsely cheerful one preceded blondley by her tits...

also a scribbler. (notebook snob, not so much, any old one will do. for a while i used agendas bought on sale 75% off in march or april).

no scribblings from today's lunchtime, however here are a few i have exhumed in your honor :

oxymoron of the week : "being dead"

nyctalopie : anomalie des yeux dans laquelle la vision, très faible pendant le jour, augmente notablement avec le déclin de la lumière.

tatou : n.m. (empr. à une langue indigène du Brésil). Mammifère d'Amérique tropicale, au corps couvert de plaques cornées et pouvant s'enrouler en boule. (Long. 30 cm, sans la queue ; ordre des édentés)

Nous sommes bien près de nous réveiller quand nous rêvons que nous rêvons.
(We are very close to waking up when we dream that we are dreaming)

i'll try to find a few in english for you now.

One would hope you develop nyctalopie to keep from stumbling over any curled up tatou.

"Being Dead"... brilliant, nominated for "would make a good band name".

Like charity, schizophrenia begins at home.
--Florence King

a spookily pertinent graffiti from la rue de Jarente :
La liberté consiste à avoir conscience de l'absurdité de la vie.
(Liberty consists of being conscious of the absurdity of life)

a graffiti i saw in Dresden :
"you know the chase is better than the catch."

words to live by.

you just let me know when you want me to stop... i've got volumes of this stuff, literally.

words of the day :
betterave (beetroot)
lapin (rabbit)
locomotive (i'll let you guess)

title which to my knowledge does not exist, but should :
"Fonctionnaire de l'inutile" (approximately "Civil Servant of the Useless")
mozzled by Jozef 27 april 2003

amflam : à se plaindre tout le temps (always complaining about something)
mozzled by Zelda probably sometime in 2003

ça craint pour la paille (approximately "watch out for the straw") : je suis énervée (i'm cranky)
also mozzled by Zelda in 2003.

No, don't stop. I'm fascinated. Surfing on your waves. I want to walk Paris with you, finding the really good graffiti.

if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate. (ar ar ar !!!)

nothing is foolproof : fools are ingenious.

i prefer to remain anomalous.

oer dier ! dis treins warboel en arend.

"Nous sommes si jeunes, nous ne pouvons pas attendre."
(we are so young, we cannot wait.)

"Regarde la réalité en farce" (Look reality in the farce)
(graffiti, rue de Thorigny)

synechdoche : her wanton curls.

Prière de ne pas marcher sur les oeuvres. (Please don't walk on the art.)

Panopticon


"Ich bin dîn
Du bist mîn
Ich dir
Du mir
Wir"
--Walther von der Vogel-Weide

Je suis folle comme un lapin ! ("i'm crazy like a rabbit !" i really wonder what *that* could have been in reference to.)

in London, on the Tube : "This train will not be calling at the next station."

in the Netherlands, in the car : raindrops pollywogging across the windows.

at Den Haag, on the beach : seashells lying in shoals and spangles across the sand.

Sneeksnits : name of a town in Holland.
