I use/visit livejournal much more frequently than the fact of my not updating in a year would suggest :X

Hmmm.

Superbad at meme-ing, in a shock to no one.

I know I say this a lot, but I have really never felt so validated.

I was so confused as to the point/purpose/meaning of No Man's Land. The sirs were delightful in it, I was glad to have seen them live, yes, but what was the point?!? I think Bri was less bothered by that question than me, but I just...I just like to know what things mean.

I think this probably speaks to why I'm not a huge fan of abstract/modern art ;) I love that Ian McKellen even had to be conned into doing it with the promise that he could perform Waiting for Godot as well.

I keep meaning to start that 30 Days meme, but the first entry asks for an introduction and a recent photograph, and I can do the introduction part ("Hi, I'm Myr.") but there's a reason I'm not on Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat/WhateverTheHellElse, so no, I don't have a recent photograph of myself. Not that it should be necessary, because according to everyone I haven't changed at all in the last ten years.

Going to New York this weekend! Excited about it, even though it will be cold as balls. Don't have much of anything planned. Will *try* to get rush tickets on Sunday to Waiting for Godot with the sirs - wish us luck?

words, words, words

Yesterday my daughter said to me, "My marriage is falling apart."
And all she can do is watch it falling. She lies down on a psychiatrist couch, squeezing tears out about this shame. And, I think, she will lie there until there is nothing more to fall, nothing to cry about, everything dry.
She cried, "No choice! No choice!" She doesn't know. If she doesn't speak, she is making a choice. If she doesn't try, she can lose her chance forever.

I know this, because I was raised the Chinese way: I was taught to desire nothing, to swallow other people's misery, and to eat my own bitterness.

And even though I taught my daughter the opposite, still she came out the same way! Maybe it is because she was born to me, and she was born a girl. And I was born to my mother and I was born a girl. All of us, like stairs, one step after another, going up and down, but all going the same way.
