    unsolved murders

    biblical apocyrpha and mideval beleifs (which is odd, because I'm not particularly religious)

    the underground portions of cities... especially if ossuaries are included

    my unending search to find the happiest song EVER

    the similarity of people across the ages (humanity is remarkably predictable )

    people, with all of thier odd little quirks and stories

    anything that will let me imagine being somewhere else in the world to the point where I can just FEEL it

    Well shit, I just came across the "Paris Underground" article in National Geographic the other day. REALLY excited because I've been to the Catacombs and plan on going back to France after I graduate (hence introducing myself to Speed Gavroche).

    I told my friend that I borrowed the issue and she was like, "I have a weekly subscription to that," and gave me her copy, which had clearly never even been touched. "I don't know how you find that interesting... it's like you see that stuff and you get all excited, while I have no idea wtf is going on."

    Uhm, yeah. I think my Sunday is going to be spent watching the 14-hour Ken Burns WWII documentary, then shopping, then a grad party, then fireworks. EXCITING!

    I've had my own subscription to National Geographic since I was 18 and moved out of my parents' house (my dad had a subscription that I grew up reading!)... I've always been perfectly content sitting on a park bench with a cup of tea and a National Geographic to take me somewhere else mentally

    of course catacombs always end up making me think of the Poe short story A Cask of Amontillado

    My life's pretty much been one weird fascination after another. I had one recently though, that really didn't fit my typical interests: those "baby doll" faced runway models (e.g. Lily Cole, Gemma Ward). I've always been completely indifferent to fashion, thought obsessing over trends and body types of models was stupid and never understood it, and when I first saw these models I was repulsed; they were these tall, lanky women with such exaggerated childlike facial features. I just went, "Ugh, weird". But I just couldn't stop looking up pictures of them. I went from repulsed to curious to intrigued to admiring. I especially liked pics of them in odd, surreal or fantasy-like scenery. I'm not even a particularly visual person, so this was completely out of the blue for me.

    that's one of the reasons that I absolutley love reading fairy tales and short stories from across different cultures and time frames... in the end, it seems like there's only a few basic stories that get told over and over again across the world and across time... stories being told in ancient India are now being made into movies, I've seen plots from Bocaccio in modern sitcoms

    I guess that humans find the same stories resonant no matter how much lifestyles change

    it's on the list of sites that I haunt for fun (somewhere right behind wikipedia, with all of it's tantalizing blue links )... figuring out connections is a total thrill!

    My old childhood maid chases me in my dreams, and she weighs like 380000 thousand pounds of solid lard, but when she gets real pissed off at me she can hyperrun, and all her fat doesnt jiggle when she does that, since the speed cancels it out. Its real strange.
