++ SO MY ENTIRE family is in town (seattle) now. mom and dad flew in on tuesday evening and jeff flew in on friday. they are all here til this coming thursday. its been fun having them here, but at the same time i now (not that i haven't before, but even more so now) realize how vastly different i am from them. maybe its because i haven't seen them at all for 5 months or maybe its that i'm in 'my' environment and they are visiting, or maybe its just me coming into my own. i'm not really sure. i know the things i am interested in. i know the things which i like to do, the places i like to go, the things i like to see, and everything i would recommend. i also know enough that i know it. so when my family comes and asks me my opinions on things i know, i give it to them. and i can do that because i am actually living here (granted its really more like visiting for an extended period of time .. 5 months) and they are just 'visiting'. so i have the right to be correct. and the right to 'know' what i'm talking about. which doesn't also make something they say correct, but i know what i'm talking about. huh? what is all this about? doesn't really matter, cause i know.

gah. frustrating day. its just one of those days i think. "maybe somebody has a case of the monday's." yeah, that would be me i guess. gah. double gah. ++

++ 20 QUESTIONS .. vs. the computer! ++

++ BRIAN SAYS, "I can philosophize myself into a meaningless, nihilistic, don't even actually exist outside of my own perception corner if I want. I can do that. At some point though, I realize that I have to live life through these tinted glasses (of myself). Though maybe it's a different shade than everyone else, I know that I have my own experiences. I also know that I can share those experiences. Sure if people are there with me, they see things differently, and even if I tell them about what I feel they still might not feel it the same. In the same way that (even though I never can) I want to know everything, I want to come as close as possible to real relationships with people. I value that they have a different perspective and experience. I value that I can learn to really care for them. Can I really explain why were different from animals? Does anything I do really have any meaning? Isn't everything really just a construct that we've made for ourselves? I don't know, but I don't think so. I think there are some absolutes..." ++
