Before mercury, my blood used to fill thermometers.

I have many fake books since I'm a leprechaun farmer who's a gambler.

I moved! Onto the banks of the mighty Susquehanna - now literally. I'm a block from the river. I am just now reunited with the internet and have spent the past few days in a heap of ache on my new sprawling mattress barely looking up to see Breillat's Bluebeard.

I am skittering to catch up on my obligations and overcome with inspiration and sticking my neck out for something that makes me sick and excited and way too crazy to get anything done. So I've been hiding in Twitter and aggregating my favorite citizens thereof. Twittizens.

Natalie Dee @NatalieDee: "I asked my kid what my name is (you know, since it's not actually mom) and she said my name is DOCTOR PLAYGROUND."
Drew @DrewToothPaste: "Republicans: "Beginning tomorrow, everyone's going to get fucked by shovels." Democrats: "We're working hard to downgrade that to brooms.""
David Lynch @David_Lynch: "Dear Twitter Friends, Happy New Year, 2012. I hope it's a great year for you all. Your friend, David."
Joey Comeau @JoeyComeau: "I had a dream where I won some kind of award for prime number based sex patterns!"
Supervert @Supervert: "William Burroughs put a curse on Truman Capote."
Lesley Kinzel @52Stations: "IT HAPPENED TO ME: I GOT FAT-SHAMED BY MY XBOX."
Mary Kim Arnold @MKimArnold: "Oh, stop yr cheering, people. This is a total travesty."
Seth Morris @BobDucca: "Never underestimate the healing power of screaming at yourself in a mirror."
Litsa Dremousis @LitsaDremousis: "Prime Ministers for Greece & Italy have resigned this month due, basically, to general lunacy. Hey, guys: PennState needs a new president."
Nalini Abhiraman @_Nalini_: "Sometimes my Mexico obsession reminds me of that special ilk of creepster white person who's way too into India."
Sadie Stein @SadieStein: "Spinach gnocchi disaster last night. Green-flecked hilarity ensued! We laughed and laughed. Hahaha. Haha. Oh, and I was by myself."
Kristine Ong Muslim @KristineMuslim: "Over the last few days I learned from Twitter the ff things: "bukakke" and "Maria Ozawa." I think the world is really going to end in 2012."
Lena Dunham @LenaDunham: "I wish that new movie was called We Need To Talk Shit About Kevin."
Marie Calloway @Marie_Calloway: "Aggressive cat literary agent asking how he can claw that check from the publishing house."
Rohin Guha @OhRohin: "WHY YES, I AM LISTENING TO ALL OF SARAH MCLACHLAN'S 1997 OPUS 'SURFACING'."
Amelia Gray @GrayAmelia: "Saying "my hands are really dry" and then going into the other room to fart surreptitiously is my new seduction technique."
Kristen Stone @_KristenStone: "Running late for therapy is a net loss, anxiety-wise."
Gina Abelkop @TheMoonStop: "There is an elementary school next to my house + I can hear a bunch of children singing along to Madonna's "Like a Virgin" #yikes."
Carolee Wheeler @SuperDilettante: "Suddenly there is a lot of Ayn Rand all over Tumblr and I don't know why and I'm frightened. WHAT IS THIS REALITY."

This is not even comprehensive and does not include institutions. A room full of these people talking would be a miracle.
