pass the parcel

you put on some music, sit in a circle and pass around a parcel. the parcel has an indeterminable number of layers of wrapping. a responsible adult is off in the corner with the stereo, and every now and then hits the stop button. whoever has the parcel when the music stops gets to take off one layer of wrapping, after which the responsible adult hits play and the parcel is passed on. this continues, excitement building as the parcel gets smaller and pointier, until lucky last unwraps the final layer and wins the prize within.

wins the prize within. wins the prize within. wins the prize within. wins the prize within.

my brain is uncomfortable in my head again. I used to think trephination would help; let ghosts fly out or something. skull needs an exorcism hole. a one-way door.

I haven’t been answering my presentation-group’s emails. haven’t prepared anything. the presentation is tomorrow. maybe i won’t go.
