so i got this gigantic urge to sort out my motivations and aspirations, plot out life and nature so that it makes sense to me, and to make observations about more abstract concepts like god and life energy. and then i want to tie it all together. so's i says to myself, i says, "i need a really big chalkboard for this one". so i'm looking online for a really really big chalkboard, and i'm getting all disappointed because 4' x 12' s start at $250 but run closer to $500, and i would need at least two. luckily, DIY and weaseling my way out of expenses are two of my specialties. so i begin to think of my options. i could just write on the walls in my basement, but i'd have to paint them dark for the chalk to show up. and that's when i remember that the rustoleum company is GOD. because they make CHALK BOARD SPRAY PAINT. so i guess my new mission is a statement of purpose. one needs to have a plan, someone said.

the only girl i've ever loved was born with roses in her eyes but then they buried her alive one evening 1945 with just her sister at her side and only weeks before the guns all came and rained on everyone now she's a little boy in spain playing pianoes filled with flames on empty rings around the sun all sing the same my dream has come

250-500 for a chalkboard?! damn! sounds good, your plan does.

weee! i've decided while in the shower to do this on pressed fiberboard, which is $2.50 for a 2x4 sheet. the advantages are i don't have to do anything permanent and it will be somewhat portable.

portable? you need to be able to carry this statement around with you?

no, but should i move, the boards can come with me. as opposed to the walls in my basement.
