Excuse me while I dance a Quadrillion Quadrilles.


Seriously. Is there
any force greater than
inertia? Verses spilled.

ourselves blank
across this smooth

    “floor. B/ow” … This makes me think of how I creamed myself falling at the bottom of the stairs the other night. I hurt myself so badly, but I never stopped to think of what I might have done to the floor. 😉

    “Fluid Or” is a nice phrase, don’t you think? Which easily turns into a fluid door.

    This is very secretly sexy, De.
