Sunday, Mar 27th, 2011 -- Venus, the love planet, enters your sign and your 1st House of Personality today, gracing you with an extra dose of charm. Don't accept less for yourself now; make the extra effort to look good so you feel good, too. Nevertheless, don't be frivolous with your energy; spending time with friends is healing for your soul as long as you don't overdo the fun.
I'm sure hanging out with my friends is invigorating for my soul.
I am so damn sleepy now.
Feel the buzzzzz.
Take one for the team.
I don't understand. A few minutes ago I was sitting in the bathtub soaking myself and the next thing I know, a girl with black eyes, long black hair and pearly nails had perched herself beside me on the edge of the bathtub.
"Who are you?"
"Damn sure you know it. I look exactly like you. Fuck, I'm you."
"That's not possible. I don't swear."
"Hell yeah you do. 'Cos I'm the real you."
"That's not possible either. I'm sitting right here washing my hair. So you can't be me."
"Yeah I am. Well, whatever. I've just come to tell you that I'm Madder and to be careful. The world's not all as it seems."
"I'm sure it's not all as it seems. I mean, look, I'm sitting here talking to myself. That's downright crazy."
"No it's not. Everyone talks to themselves. Their real selves just don't come out like I do. You're going a bit barmy. You're not listening to yourself nowadays."
"But why are you called Madder? I'm sure my real self has a pretty name somewhere."
"Pretty smretty. The point of true names is that they reflect the true self. Just listen to you. You're getting madder and madder as you speak. What is your real name if not Madder?"
"I'm sure you're right."
"Now, what do you think of the world?"
"Pretty complicated, now that you mention it. I see the world upside-down sometimes. That's the real world yeah?"
"No! You're wrong. You're always wrong. Look, the world is not upside-down. It's inside-out!"
"How can it be? I'm sure we're meant to be living on the outside. If we're living inside we'd be dead right?"
"No! The point of living is to live at the core of it. And how can you be dead if you've never lived?"
"I'm pretty sure I'm not dead."
"I never said you were."
"Look, it's not absolute. Not black or white, one or the other. There are perceptual differences. A hundred shades of white. Perceptual differences realises it. It makes them real."
"Makes what real?"
"Makes what real? You don't sound very bright. The things which we cannot see and therefore dismiss as non-existent. You don't know anything."
"Why do you make fun of me?"
"A true sense of humour is being able to make fun of yourself. Alright I have many things to do. I'm off."
"Can I come?"
"No! You wouldn't understand. Besides you've got other superficial things to do."
"Like finishing my bath?"
"I meant studying."
"It's called the pursuit of education."
"You don't really believe that crap do you? I'd know.
Hah, I'm off. Goodbye."
