Trevor over shoulder double face
I'm coming down from a very strange experience. For the last ten or fifteen minutes I've been sitting at the computer, my eyes captured by the monitor's glow. I was paging through my friends page while having the distinct sensation of being something on the order of 30° from vertical with respect to the floor, which seemed to slope up to the right. The computer desk, meanwhile, sloped down to the right. "Swimming" is a word used to describe, I believe, the way my head felt. I was able to read and comprehend some posts, but on others the sentences didn't synch up. I've been aware of a sensation like hunger in like my belly. A "pet me!" visit from my cat brought me down a little, but not very far or for very long.

The horizontal surfaces have stabilized and now I'm just in a bit of "deep focus" mode; I still feel somewhat distant from reality. The only thing I've consumed since communal breakfast was a travel mug of gunpowder green tea over the course of several hours.

When people express surprise at the fact that I don't smoke marijuana, I tell them that I'm calm, spaced out, in tune with the universe, and hungry most of the time anyway, so there'd be no point getting high. Apparently I can have mild hallucinations induced by iTunes, Safari, and Mail.app too.

Those aren't hallucinations. That's how the world really is, when we aren't nailing it down to where we think it should be.

Oh, and I don't smoke marijuana, either.

When people express surprise at the fact that I don't smoke marijuana...

I'm not at all surprised to hear (read?) that.
