tempus fugit  
And just like that, it's a nearly a week into September. I truly adore the hallucinatory trick of perception that makes it seem like time moves faster and faster the older you get. I remember my childhood summers lasting an eternity and three-minute pop songs lasting for hours. Now, everytime I blink it's time to flip the calendar to the next recipe of the month.

Maybe I've been reading too much 60s sci-fi lately, but I assume we'll figure out the quirk of brain chemistry that causes it. Then we'll have pills that drastically alter our perception of time. Going to Paris for a week? Take a blue pill and make it feel like two weeks. Serving a six-year prison sentence? Take a couple red pills and make it seem like just two.

I can't wait for those pills.

She's pretty.

Bravo on the the selections that aren't slutty-looking.

I think it's due to the universe's expansion slowing, therefore our moving clocks are moving slower, and time IS in fact ticking faster.

NAH, probably brain chemistry.

Man another great one. The things you miss when you are off the internet.
