I need inspiration fast! Help me (I need to write 15 pages worth of story and "Sunny Dare" isn't working out too well for me...)

Dumb stuff (paraphrased from Joe):

Good health is just the slowest rate at which one can die

How is it that it only takes one match to start a forest fire but it takes an entire box to start a campfire?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

And speaking of matches, give a man a match and he's warm for five seconds; light a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Damn printkeys.

First Day in Iowa

First of all, it's the "Hawkeyes", not the "Cornhuskers", as I originally thought. The Writer's Workshop here is a lot more tightly run than Kenyon Review one; it looks like I'll be doing actual work here instead of doing my stream-of-consciousness thing.

Now to the important stuff:

-The ratio is 36-24 them, which is good, not as good as Kenyon, but Still Alright
-Our teacher's name is Anjali, yet she looks nothing like what I expected
-Food = passable
-Roommate seems cool, but very very quiet.
-We have to write a major piece to "workshop" and I came this close *holds fingers very close together* to writing something that would have instantly marked me as either gay or VERY effeminate. Why is it that I can never get the Hiroshima story out of my head? Right now I'm torn between going with what I have (a one finger salute from the wingmen of the world to those who abuse them), a Locke and Hobbes story, or *possibly* the Masefield idea. But who knows.
-I saw him, didn't believe my eyes, and then saw him again as he came up to me. Matt "There's a Lion in my Stomach" is here!!! WTF!?!?!??!?!?!??! KYW continues to haunt me....

Tomorrow, Tomorrow...
Yeah I will be gone from June 18th to July 1st to try to drown out my Kiddie Angst with writing. Hopefully I will be able to continue to update from there; if not, it's going to be a very miserable Internet-less two weeks.

Please leave some messages of hope and appreciation, or maybe of sympathy for You-Know-Who, or funny inside jokes, or requests to see Love Burns. I'll probably be lonely as hell while I'm there.
