butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (veilofstars)
I want things to be different. I start thinking about how things could be different, and then I remember the morning I drove up to Seattle. After Steve got on his airplane back to LAX, I had a few hours before going back to the Sacramento airport to meet Beth’s flight. My parents, my mother particularly, were not comfortable with me driving from Southern California to Seattle alone, so the first part of the trip was with my ex in the passenger seat, the second half with my school-days friend who lived in Portland, Oregon.

During the time between flights, I went to a local diner and had breakfast. It was going to be breakfast alone, a rare thing for me to do. I couldn’t remember ever having had a restaurant breakfast by myself. I can’t remember if I did or didn’t, the time I ran away; I might have made good with coffee and pastry. I can’t remember much about the time I ran away. Just the part about buying that black bodysuit and plaid skirt, and the driving.

Rabbit Hole Day 2009

I missed the last few of these:
A few months ago, I had a dream in which LiveJournal and everyone on it went completely nuts for a day. The entire world had turned upside-down and inside-out and nobody was their normal self anymore. And it was such a good read, that I think it should happen for real.

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carroll, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND...

Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore. I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2009 should be the fifth Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that day, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics.

Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunch meat?

Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.

For consideration: this only works if you spread the word, of course.

I'm not a huge fan of Lewis Carroll, but I kind of like this idea. We did this last year... if you missed it, maybe you thought of something after the day? Here was mine: Rabbit 2005

And here is the challenge meme:

It might be a fun way for us to flex our AU writing muscles!
