William Blake
You are William Blake! Wow. I'm impressed. Not
only are you a self-made artist and poet, but
you've suddenly become a very trendy guy to
like. It's not that we doubt that you have all
your marbles, it's just that we're not quite
sure what you did with them to come up with
those terrifying theological visions. The
people of your time were nowhere near as
forgiving as that, and all your neighbors
thought you were a grade-A nut job. But we
love you, so rest happy.

Which Major Romantic Poet Would You Be (if You Were a Major Romantic Poet)?

I feel absurdly pleased with myself! Wish I'd start seeing angels, etc. again, too. Actually, the more I read about sleep disturbance, the more likely it seems that my childhood encounters with ETs and angels were some kind of 'sleep paralysis', whch is depressingly boring and common...Fiddle de Dee. Maybe I should go to the BM before it gets hot again. I slept in until after 8:30, due to not sleeping much all week, I guess, and now I'm all befuddled.

The bloke in GOSH said 'You do small press, don't you?' and gave me a discount, which I hadn't even asked for,'cos 'nobody' gives it any more. Kewl! Of course, I shouldn't have been buying anything, but I spent less than usual on groceries this week, due to being too hot to eat, so there! Then again, there's all the notebooks, etc. I grabbed in LIDL...Uhhh...
Went to the BM and saw the MUSEUM OF THE MIND and MEDICINE MAN exhibits, both quite interesting. The latter was full of way creepy stuff,including shrunken heads, glass eyes, hair-raising bonesaws, obstetric and dental instruments that make you really glad to live in this time and place, and a truly disturbing Peruvian mummy. I think the worst was the dried sheets of tattooed human skin. The many kids in attendance were, of course, loving it all; should be the hit of the summer. There's a nice little film by the Quay brothers, too. Oh, and Napoleon's toothbrush! Both exhibits are free.
I was glad I went when I did, as it was getting humid, sweaty, and scorchy by the time I came out, and I suppose will get worse by the day, again,until the next blessed relief comes along.Grumble...
