Now We're Talkin'

create your own visited country map
or write about it on the open travel guide

Let's see that makes the tally: U.S., Mexico, Bahamas, France, Italy and Switzerland.
It seems like I've visited more countries...maybe because each trip was so wonderful and memorable...or wonderfully memorable...Mhhmm.

Let's include countries I'd like to visit as well.

Oh Snap!
You are a PHOENIX in your soul and your
wings make a statement. Huge and born of flame,
they burn with light and power and rebirth.
Ashes fall from your wingtips. You are an
amazingly strong person. You survive, even
flourish in adversity and hardship. A firm
believer in the phrase, 'Whatever doesn't kill
you only makes you stronger,' you rarely fear
failure. You know that any mistake you make
will teach you more about yourself and allow
you to 'rise from the ashes' as a still greater
being. Because of this, you rarely make the
same mistake twice, and are not among the most
forgiving people. You're extremely powerful and
wise, and are capable of fierce pride, passion,
and anger. Perhaps you're this way because you
were forced to survive a rough childhood. Or
maybe you just have a strong grasp on reality
and know that life is tough and the world is
cruel, and it takes strength and independence
to survive it. And independence is your
strongest point - you may care for others, and
even depend on them...but when it comes right
down to it, the only one you need is yourself.
Thus you trust your own intuition, and rely on
a mind almost as brilliant as the fire of your
wings to guide you.You are eternal and because
you have a strong sense of who and what you
are, no one can control your heart or mind, or
even really influence your thinking. A symbol
of rebirth and renewal, you tend to be a very
spiritual person with a serious mind - never
acting immature and harboring a superior
disgust of those who do. Likewise, humanity's
stupidity and tendency to want others to solve
their problems for them frustrates you
endlessly. Though you can be stubborn,
outspoken, and haughty, I admire you greatly.

Mais bien sur, mes cheries
You are Remy LeBeau (so I can't spell your real
name.) AKA Gambit. You can kinetically charge
things and whip em at people with amazing
force. Pretty cool. All the ladies love you,
you slick thing. But they better watch out or
you'll steal more from them than just their
hearts. It's alright, though, you'll just charm
them into thinking they wanted to give you all
their stuff.

Piercing Silences
You could know a person for a year, five years, eight always run out of things to talk about. It always happen in a place where you can't in a car...or prison cell. Today, one of my friends offers to give me a ride home after class. How nice. Anything that gets me out of the MTA is most welcome. So chit chat ensues from the classroom to the lot... a long walk. "So what've you been up to?" "Not much. I went to New York. It was lots of fun." "Oh yeah? I love it there too. I wanna go there soon." SILENCE. That must've lasted us to the lot right? Oh crap we're only at the bottom of the stairs leading out of the class. "So uuh..What classes do you have this quarter?" "I've got math, chem and spanish." "Yeah I've got math, chem, french film and varsity band." "Oh yeah? How's the French course?" "It's cool. We just watch movies and talk about them." "Ah yeah." "Yeah." "*Cough*" "*Cough*" SILENCE. Ok ok almost there. "Man I hate the parking people here. They're demons of the underworld. How'd you get a permit?" "Y'know. Just got one." "Uh huh........Sit down make yourself comfortable." "Heheh alright." "You can have that banana lying there." "No I'm good." We're just pulling out of the lot at this point. And low and behold, TRAFFIC. In LA?? Noooo. "I hate LA traffic." "Yeah it blows." "MMhhmm" SILENCE. During this extended period of silence, several coughs are exchanged as well as rummagings in backpacks and such to seem as if you have something on your mind, not just a boring louse. "So...I talked to Rayan the other day." "Ryan?" "Yeah Rayan." "Ryan Weiss??" "No no Rayan Eshaghian." "Oh oh" "Yeah" "Yeah" Oh my god this is getting bad. At this point we were at Wilshire and Santa Monica. "You can turn left here...It's faster." "Oh ok." "Wilshire's a bitch to drive on at this time." "Yeah I know." Cell phone rings. His. Thank the heavens. "Rabble rabble mumble mumble rabble rabble." "*Cough* *Rummage*" He hangs up. "My mom can be so annoying." "Ah well...It's a living." It's a living? What the hell is that supposed to mean?? Santa Monica and Rodeo. "You know I never know how to pronounce that." "What?" "Rodeo." "What do you mean?" "Like I know it's Ro-dey-o...But on some of the signs there's no accent, so it should be Rodeo." "Hm." "Yeah." Oh god. What the hell am I talking about?? Why am I initiating conversation? Why isn't he? "I like Russian Techno." Oh, that's why. "Yeah yeah me too." I do? Since when? What the hell is Russian Techno. "Here listen." Do I have a choice?...The windows are ears hurt...we're driving down Burton Way...blasting Russian did I get here? "Yeah this is getting annoying, let me change the cd." "Oh ok." Praise Heysus. My nose is itchy. Crap. The inside of my nose is itchy. I can't scratch it though. What do I do? "So do you keep in touch with anyone?" Oh shit. He decides to engage conversation now. My nose is itching so badly. "Umm y'know...*nose twitch*...Ilana, Rayan....*nose twitch nose twitch*...Jeremy, Ashley..." Oh god I can't take this. It's time for tactical maneuvers. "What's that cd in your door?" "Huh?" He looks down to the door pocket. INVASIVE NOSE SCRATCH. 1. 2. 3. 4. Success! Nose itch evaded. "This one?" "What? Yeah yeah that one." "This is another Russian Techno cd. Let me put it in." Aw for fuck's sake....SANCTUARY. Burton and La Cienega approaches. "Just pull up ahead and veer off into my street." "Okie dokey." The home stretch! I think I scratched my nose too hard. It burns now. Crap. "This building?" "Yep this one...thanks a lot for the ride man...I appreciate it." "Anytime." "See you in class Monday." "Yep see ya." He drives off....He is a good friend and a nice guy, but as in many relationships, as Dr. Phil says, you just run out of shit to talk about. Maybe we're just boring people deep down. In the silence, the ugly, desperate, side of you emerges...The side that says things like, "Did you know that the scientific name for moths is Drosophila?"
