so last night trillian_stars and i watched the first two episodes of Millenium which I thought were fantastic. (I'll let her weigh in on her thoughts.) It's somewhat strange seeing them in the post-2000 light -- back in 1996 when they were aired there was still some awe and mystery about the coming of the year 2000, the future was approaching and what was to be done about it? what strange, evil and/or wonderous things would happen when the clock struck 12? who would be at Prince's party? and just how would Prince party, exactly.
After watching Millenium we turned out the lights and laid on the sofa and listened to Space Oddity with our eyes closed, letting the genius creep in.
I got a rejection letter this a.m. for the deserts book, but it was no thing after all this splendour. So we beat on, boats against the current, borne forward, ceaselessly, into our new hopes.
I hope y'all had a wonderful night too, even if Trillian Stars wasn't there to make your life rattle the heavens.
