Feeling Somewhat Better...

Yesterday was rough.
Today was not fun, but it has been a little bit better, knowing it puts me another day closer to Bobi's upcoming visit to SC. Welcome to the south, darlin!

I am so excited! I've got him reading The Dark Tower! My mostest favorite series of books in the WORLD! I love having discussions (especially the in-person variety) on the story, the philosophy behind it. I can't wait for heated debate with my love on parallel realities followed by groping sessions. Score!

That's it. I must reread books 2-7 now.

"Yet suppose further. Suppose that all worlds, all universes, met at a single nexus, a single pylon, a Tower. And within it, a stairway, perhaps rising to the Godhead itself. Would you dare climb to the top, gunslinger? Could it be that somewhere above all of endless reality, there exists a room?...

"You dare not."

I've had thoughts along these lines for years, although the central nexus is a new one for me.

When I was ten, the theory of multiversing was introduced in a Fantastic Four cartoon, when Reed shrank everybody down and they explored the despotic realm of a sub-subatomic warlord. It was neato.

Superverses are, of course, much easier to intuit, especially if you've seen Men In Black.

But the nexus... this should be interesting.

Bee said...

You'll find that there are a lot of other hugely concepts other than Superverses and Central Nexus involved in this story. Like the incorporation of Time, Fate, and once again that idea of 'size' into one concept, Beams of energy that hold up the Nexus, magic (both good and bad) vs. science (both good and bad), guardians, and time travel.

In other words, nerd paradise.


B.O.B.I. said...


Yeah, I got a little piece of the future when I read the Intro by King. He said something about Roland protecting the tower by defending the beams.

And I was like, "Huh? Protecting? Bluh?"

Ok, I'ma get back to reading.

so..... what exactly are you ::groping::?

also, i've never read these books. i'm intrigued. also, tired.

why do jobs suck so bad?

Bee said...

Your job? Please.

Does everyone need reminding of the fact that I work at the landfill???

Love your jobs, people. Love them!

Will have to grope at myself in Bobi's stead.

Wonder what my excuse was before. Heh.

Crystal said...

i'm totally not in my element with this post. :(

Bee said...

Read more!

How about a random cute fact?

Bobi & I finished a crossword puzzle in about 5 min.
We are brilliant!

Ms. Adventures said...

my Mom has that entire series, I need to read it too. Looks interesting. It would probably take me ages though.

B.O.B.I. said...

Yeah, today this kinda cool guy I should probably start talking to noticed the book-like bulge in myne pocket and asked what I was reading. When he found out which, he grinned huge and gave me the thumbs up and asked how many times I'd read it.

BOBI: Ummm... this is my first.
Kid: What? Where the hell have you been living?
BOBI: Bottom of a well?
Kid: Just barely excusable.

THANK YOU BETHIE! I can't put these down! I'm actually still reading as I type this; my fingers are on auto-pilot. I just hope they're not saying anything crude, like, "Beth is an animal in the sack!"

As for the crossword puzzle, YEAH we rock! Next step is trying The New York Times. They're hard but we can do it. I mean, we're us, right?

Ditto to the "What was my groping excuse before?" although some Bethie-groping would be preferable. Like, a lot.

Random cute fact: Bethie looked at me for a few seconds in Suncoast and finally asked me why I wasn't smooching her. I quickly rectified the situation.
