delirious: (quirky)
"Do you know someone who needs hours alone every day? Who loves quiet conversations about feelings or ideas, and can give a dynamite presentation to a big audience, but seems awkward in groups and maladroit at small talk? Who has to be dragged to parties and then needs the rest of the day to recuperate? Who growls or scowls or grunts or winces when accosted with pleasantries by people who are just trying to be nice?"

Read this.

Might have cracked a rib laughing.

I can't really pick a favourite quote, but maybe because I've just finished season 1 of Dexter in three days, have this.

"Remember, someone you know, respect, and interact with every day is an introvert, and you are probably driving this person nuts. It pays to learn the warning signs."


"We can only dream that someday, when our condition is more widely understood, when perhaps an Introverts' Rights movement has blossomed and borne fruit, it will not be impolite to say "I'm an introvert. You are a wonderful person and I like you. But now please shush.""
delirious: (delirium)
This morning I woke up and refused to get out of bed because I liked the dreams I was having too much.

I like to call these the "fake" dreams, because I'm obviously awake but allowing my brain go batshit, since it was kind of ridiculous and all sorts of stupid technicolour.

It was a crossover between real life and The Quiz Show 2, only there was magic involved and lots of Christmas tricks. Possibly set in my grandmother's three story condominium, Yoko - who had a dastardly wide smile on his face - was wooing Sho in a Santa hat. I was going down the street to get some coffee, my brothers were in the house reading Harry Potter, and the scene outside the house reminded me of Italy.

I feel like I should advise my real grandmother not to buy that house she's been eying in some Unplottable place in China... Remind me how awesome brains are again?

I am clearly cut out to be a fantasy author. Also, proud that I've got my priorities set straight. Where's my Italian cappuccino?


The coffee cup that has cooled down
a little is like a merry-go-round
It mimics our inertia

Let's kiss one more time, and
expose your secret
Beyond your tongue and mine,
there's the truth...

kiss twice, kiss me deadly,
