justprompts Is there such a thing as truly wiping the slate clean and starting over?  
No.

There's dust when you wipe the slate clean. Even if you use water, that leaves behind residue as well. If you throw the slate out the window it doesn't disappear. If you smash it into a million pieces, those pieces still exist.

I have started over many times so I know. All the dust and all the broken pieces are always still there.

Chalk dust is beautiful. And water, when it falls in drops on the table. The cheapest glass can glitter like crystal when crushed. It's wondrous if you know how to look.

Stars start over, just like us. Everything starts over eventually. Everything… continues.

No, there is no such thing as wiping the slate clean. And there shouldn't be. Recycling is good for the environment.

Go green.

Hey you.

Guess what I found the other day? A place called 'Northstar Recycling.'
I wonder what I'd be recycled into.

You, i think, would be some urban organic community garden.

JP, that's one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me. Really.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: scuse?speed_of_snark on January 7th, 2011 09:03 pm (UTC)
I'm secretly nice. Don't tell anyone.

The downside is that hipster vegans would root around in your leafy patches.
Lorna Dane: BP: Yay!erikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:10 pm (UTC)
I have been trying for the past five minutes to come up with a proper response to that and there just isn't one, especially from San Francisco. But I sure did giggle!

So. How's you?
Jean-Paul Beaubier: live/lovespeed_of_snark on January 7th, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Giggling is good!

I have several people informing me today that I need to make a line of sex toys. I think I shall oblige them. You?
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:17 pm (UTC)
Yes. It is.

Just don't make that your recycling company, okay?
I'm me. You know. I love the new year.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: oohspeed_of_snark on January 7th, 2011 09:20 pm (UTC)

Promise. I've had requests for a Wolverine dildo. I'm a bit scared.
I do. And yeah, it's a good time. Fresh starts. I made a bunch of bullshit resolutions I know I'll break.

Like. ...Claws?
Let me guess: quit smoking.

Paige got me a green sweater for Christmas. That count?
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:33 pm (UTC)
I don't think Paige would recycle a gift to her big brother ;)
Sam Guthrie: sweet boyroughnecksam on January 7th, 2011 09:46 pm (UTC)
No, I don't suppose she would. Though I wouldn't be surprised if she bought it from an environmentally friendly sort of store.
Lorna Dane: BP: Yay!erikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:47 pm (UTC)
Then maybe it counts.
For her!
Sam Guthrie: comic sam says shucks a lotroughnecksam on January 10th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
I was planning on recycling it right back to the Salvation Army...
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 07:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, that must mean it's stylish :P
Sam Guthrieroughnecksam on January 10th, 2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
Hey now, my style's gotten better since I met you. Ma was shocked when I told her I own a tux now.
Lorna Dane: BP: Please Don't Break My Hearterikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
I hope good shocked?
Sam Guthrie: sweet boyroughnecksam on January 10th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC)
Are you kidding? Plenty good. You know my ma loves you nearly as much as I do. She kept talking about how I was finally figuring out you can't wear flannel everywhere.

Happy New Year, stranger. How've you been?

OOC: Love, love, LOVE this. And how happy am I to see Lorna back in action? (Answer: VERY.) I heart it AND you. <3333333333333!
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 06:39 pm (UTC)
I never know how to answer those how are you questions. But I'm just fine.

ooc: Gah, I was away all weekend, sorry. But thank you! I was looking at the prompts for something else but this just leapt out at me for Lorna and I thought well, why not? She's my girl ;) <3333333333!
Aryn Wakefield: smiling 3bookish_blonde on January 10th, 2011 06:50 pm (UTC)
I'm glad to hear it. And Katie and Sam? How are they? Hope 2011's off to a good start for all of you.

OOC: No worries, I've been busy with family stuff most of the week anyway. And you are welcome! This is so very Lorna, and I particularly love the last line. :)
Lorna Dane: BPB: Look Lefterikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
Katie's great, you probably wouldn't recognize her. Sam you can talk to yourself a few comments up. We're still trying to figure things out, but, we're good. How's the mansion? And the baby! You probably don't even think of her as a baby anymore.
Aryn Wakefield: mommy!Arynbookish_blonde on January 10th, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
Little lady, huh? And good is good! You guys'll get there.

The mansion is... busy -- you know, back from the holidays and all that entails. And Gabi was fifteen months on the 5th. She's walking, and talking, getting ready to be a big sister...* and I think part of me will always think of her as a baby. I drove Remy nuts when she turned a year old. Mommy was so not prepared for that.

*Remy mun's insanely busy, so we kind of handwaved the announcement.
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 07:54 pm (UTC)
Everything is busy this time of year, isn't it? You are a brave woman to have two kids under three but then they'll probably be spoiled rotten by all their aunties and uncles. Congratulations to all three of you.
Aryn Wakefield: mildly amusedbookish_blonde on January 10th, 2011 08:04 pm (UTC)
It is, it's insanity. Brave? Logan seems to think crazy is a better word. :P And thank you, I wish I could say we know what it is, but it's not quite as cooperative as Gabi was.
Lorna Daneerikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 08:21 pm (UTC)
Aws. It's still early, right? Are you hoping one way or the other or just happy?
