Having my way with Ulysses

Talking about the time all the time.

The ritual extinguishing of fires is to be attributed to the same tendency to put an end to existing forms (worn away by the fact of their own existence) in order to make room for the birth of a new form, issuing from a new Creation. 8:40 pm

I must be getting my cycle again.   I’m all bloated and I can feel everything tight on me, and I was just skinny.  Must be time again because I got it the last time I cut my hair and it was a full moon then too.  Thirteen a year, I wonder what we’d call month 13 and where we put it.  Somebody will come along and name the new month after themselves I’m sure, like the romans did all the time.  June, July, Coca-Cola, August.  It’s coming.   So.  Look at him over there.  He’s watching, starting his watch again.  I’ll just swing my leg a little in and out.  Give him something to see.  See if he can keep time to me.  Wish Edy would disappear.  She’s always there like clockwork to notice everything and point it out too just to try to embarrass me.  Thanks for always pointing out the subtle over and again so it can be nice and obvious you bitch.  Reggy didn’t dump me, we weren’t together this time and what’s it to her anyway.  I can have anybody I want, obviously, I mean look at that guy.  He’s literally worshipping at my shrine!  His look is for me and just for me, and she knows it.  Scrawny ugly jealous bitch.  And Cissy too, fixing the twins’ hair so she can look good.  None of her business what happened between Reggy and me.  I could get him back any time I want to and I don’t want to.  His loss.  He’ll come back around and I’ll be long gone!  Ha!  I’m so much better than all of them and there’s the proof sitting right over there staring right up my skirt.  I hope I’m not starting my cycle.

She was a forward piece whenever she thought she had a good opportunity to show off.

What true feeling for their's hayair with what strawng voice of false jiccup!8:36 pm

Cissy thinks she’s so great. I actually called her out when this whole drama with her and Edy was going on because I thought Cissy was being mean. But then I started noticing when people were calling Cissy fake and stuff, Edy was tweeting how happy she was and it seemed to me she was teasing Cissy for being so fake and everything. I mean, Cissy tries to pretend she is so chill and everything but she’s really one of those girls that at first everyone would think is so cool and nice and then something will go down and people will see how fake she is. You can tell in her voice that she’s so fake. She acts like everyone likes her and she thinks she’s so cool. I wish she understood how weird it looks when she runs like that but whatever. And she thinks if she runs in a too tight skirt she can show off her legs as far as possible and possible too. But my guy watching me isn’t even noticing her. I’d like to trip her accidentally on purpose. She is so stupid. I feel like when I stare into her eyes I can almost see the unintelligence.  It’s like looking into the eyes of some weird animal.  She thinks if she acts dramatiker than everybody else, then she’ll be so cool but she’s really so fake. She pretending to be nice to the twins too but she really wants to give them each a smack on the head which they need, the both of them. Her hair is so fake. Not like mine. She’s colored it so much that its gone all dry and bushy and everything and looks like weird semi-curly straw. And she has these bangs that stick out everywhere that she thinks looks good. Anybody with eyes in their head can see the difference between her and me and my man sitting on the rocks is watching me and not her so ha!

And, my word, didn’t the little chap enjoy that!

My mother groaned! my father wept. Into the dangerous world I leapt: Helpless, naked, piping loud; Like a fiend hid in a cloud. Struggling in my fathers hands: Striving against my swaddling bands: Bound and weary I thought best To sulk upon my mothers breast.8:30:61 pm

Holy Mary he is such a cutie! Cissy and Edy playing peek-a-boo and he laughs like a little angel! So cute. He’ll talk soon, everybody say’s he’s smart for 11 months and big for his age too. He’ll turn out to be somebody important. Just look at him! Look at the size of him! He won’t sit up though, I suppose that’s normal. But otherwise he’s very advanced for his little age. But he can be loud! What were Edy and Cissy thinking, bringing a baby out this late? They should take that screaming little shit home and the little brats of twins too. Getting on my last nerve. Good thing we’re so far from the water here or I’d want to throw him into the ocean! See if he swims. Lucky for him he’s cute. I suppose that’s why. A baby is great and all, but not when it is wet and screaming. But I guess you can’t just box it up and send it back.

Kick it away and let them fight for it.

It is not given to you, nor to any other Being, to behold my internal parts. I am of a different order of Beings from those in Flatland. Were I a Circle, you could discern my intestines, but I am a Being, composed as I told you before, of many Circles, the Many in the One, called in this country a Sphere.8:24 pm

I wish to God those stupid kids hadn’t brought me round to the beach in the first place.  Going around and around over me day in and day out, you can’t blame me for feeling deflated.  And then that little pin head deliberately kicked me as hard as he could and I had no choice but to get right in the middle of the work going on between that pervy guy in black and Gerty.  She might have thought her eyes were masked by her hat, but you’d have to be dense as a bowling ball not to see the exchange of energy going on between those two bodies.  You didn’t see? You didn’t catch it?  Here, I’ll spell it out for you: Work = 1/2mv – 1/2 mu2.  No? Huh. You seem like a well rounded person, I didn’t mean to expose your ignorance or anything.  I always assume people speak my language too.  You’re not two dimensional, are you?  You look round enough.  Here, I’ll take it back a step: Ek = 1/2 mv and when you apply the kind of force Gerty did (I’m talking take two, you understand, how do you kick a ball and miss? Sheesh.) with her skirt hiked up to Canada, you could see her Yukon Territories!  Well these sorts of exchanges between bodies have their own momentum.   I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you for a point mass m rotating about an axis at distance r, the angular momentum, L equals (mv)r = (mar)r = mrw where w is the angular velocity of the body. You know, in radians per second. So clearly, the I = mr between Gerty and Pervy was at this point through the roof and the only way Edy and Cissy could mask their delight at the creepiness of it all was to laugh at Gerty for missing me the first time round.  But everybody knew.

But she never had a foot like Gerty MacDowell, a five, and never would ash, oak or elm

(what a pairfact crease! how amsolookly kersse!) breaking over the ankle and hugging the shoeheel, everything the best 8:12 pm

Edy Boardman thinks she’s so cute just because she’s skinny.  But have you seen her feet?  Ugly and wide.  Not like mine with my high arched instep.  Perfect.  My feet look good in shoes too and my shoes are always nicer than Edy’s.  She’s totally jealous of my blue ones too, HA!  They match my panties which are blue for luck because brides always wear blue ones with different colored ribbons.  I’m wearing them inside out for luck and lover’s meeting because Reggie is probably out somewhere, I just know it.  Except it’s Friday, so that might reverse everything.  Hm.  I wonder if I can slip them off and turn them back right side out without anybody noticing.  Don’t look.

(The girl chums had of course their little tiffs from time to time like the rest of mortals)

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to violence, the word and the act. While violence cloaks itself in a plethora of disguises, its favorite mantle still remains: sex. Violence devours all it touches, its voracious appetite rarely fulfilled. Yet violence doesn't only destroy, it creates and molds as well. Let's examine closely then this dangerously evil creation, this new breed encased and contained within the supple skin of woman.8:06 pm

Along with Cissy Caffrey, Edy Boardman is one of my best friends.  She’s the only one I told about, oh God this is embarrassing, but I want to be real so anyway, she’s the only one I told about those discharges I was having.  TMI, I know!  And she said that her mom told her sister she should take iron supplements for the same thing and that I should too so I did and I don’t feel so beat up all the time now.  Edy is my best friend and she totally has my back.  Not like Bertha Supple who was trying to trash talk me and once I went up to her and a bunch of other girls and she kept right on talking about me like I wasn’t Right There!  What a total bitch.  That was around the same time that Edy told Bertha that I had extensions in my hair which was a deliberate lie and then Edy pretended to give me a hug but smeared gum in my hair so I’d have to cut a bunch of it off.  Total bitch.  I used peanut butter to get it out and only had to cut a tiny bit and it doesn’t show, plus I covered it up with clip ins.  Well I’m not going to let that bitch mess with me, fuck that shit, so I waited for her after school and was like where’s the bad bitch at?  Where’s the bad bitch at? so she’d know I’m not scared of her bitch ass.  And she came out and said what you gonna, fucking jump me?  I said no grabbing hair, no scratching, no going for the face and then I fucking whooped that bitch’s ass.  I grabbed her right by the hair and pulled her head down so I could slam my knee right into her face and Bertha was screaming get the fuck out of here you cunt and I was like fuck that shit cause she was pissed that I stole her boyfriend so Bertha gets all into it and then so does Cissy screaming don’t fucking lay a hand on her stupid bitch get the fuck off her and Edy got out from under me and kicked me right in the mouth then said you’re fucking ugly stupid bitch and I said but I got your man bitch and she said you’ve got my man?  You’re so ugly you can’t have a man, bitch!  What a total cunt.  And all because she’s jealous I have better hair and I don’t have to try to be beautiful.  Whatever.  We’re over it.  She’s my best friend, along with Cissy.
