justprompts Is there such a thing as truly wiping the slate clean and starting over?  

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.

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.
Lorna Dane: BPB: For really?erikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)

Like. ...Claws?
Let me guess: quit smoking.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: ginchspeed_of_snark on January 7th, 2011 09:47 pm (UTC)
That's what I said. Turned out they were thinking more like, pornstar replica style. I bet I could convince him to do it. I got him nude for charity...
You still know me so well.
Lorna Daneerikscordelia on January 7th, 2011 09:51 pm (UTC)

Oh, my. If Jean were around you'd be singed right now.
Aw. Good. Also: quit smoking!
Jean-Paul Beaubier: fuck yeahspeed_of_snark on January 7th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
Quite possibly. But it was for charity! Lorna, I saw Thor's penis!
I will. One day. Not today.
Lorna Daneerikscordelia on January 10th, 2011 07:20 pm (UTC)
That is actually a scary thought. Is this calendar still available?
Jean-Paul Beaubier: amusedspeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 12:56 am (UTC)
You bet. On sale even. I'll get you one free, though.

Oh. I'm also going to be making eco friendly sex toys!
Lorna Daneerikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 01:10 am (UTC)
It's for charity, I don't mind paying. Actually, I think I prefer it just in case certain people ask why in heaven's name I have it!

Only you, Jean-Paul. But that's a compliment.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: heespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 01:15 am (UTC)
Okay then.

Me and She-Hulk to be precise. Her boobs are even bigger than yours!
Lorna Dane: BP: Yay!erikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 01:19 am (UTC)
I suppose in this discussion relative size of our breasts is relevant. I didn't realize you knew She-Hulk but then I guess you know everyone, don't know? Is it going to be an online store or one of those "host a sex toy buying party" kind of thing?
Jean-Paul Beaubier: heespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 01:25 am (UTC)
I kinda do know everyone. Yours are squishier, though.
Online, Very classy. ...as far as replica Logan dicks can be classy.
Lorna Dane: BP: Wintererikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 01:31 am (UTC)

Well, now I know where to go when I need a fun birthday gift. Let me know when it's up, there is a wealth of advertising opportunities for you out here.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: smilespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 01:32 am (UTC)
Merci, I will.

You're doing good, huh?
Lorna Dane: BP: Please Don't Break My Hearterikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 01:43 am (UTC)

Shocking, I know! But I think I am. I spent the summer traveling with Mum and Katie and I just put everything else on hold. It was really good for all three of us. I came back to San Francisco with a clear head and took the fall to settle, get back into things and, I don't know -- so far, so good.

How's your family?
Jean-Paul Beaubier: dorky smilespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 01:56 am (UTC)
You seem really like... upbeat? But not in a plastic perky way. The kidlet must be huge by now! Chrisse time flies.

Up and down. Overall good. My sister's dating again.
Lorna Dane: BP: Dental Hygieneerikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 02:03 am (UTC)

I'm optimistic. And yes, she's six, taller than you can imagine and quite the self-assured young lady.

I hope more up than down. Dating someone we like?
Jean-Paul Beaubier: dorky smilespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
Wow. I might be a little teary eyed, here.

It's... well, you know.
Yeah! Kyle Gibney, codename Wildchild. They are so cute together. They're shacking up!
Lorna Daneerikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 02:21 am (UTC)

I'm sure she'd love to see you if you want to come by sometime.

Yes, I know.
That's really great. I'm happy for you guys.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: smilespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
I would love that.

I knew you would.
Thank you.

Shit really does work out okay sometimes.
Lorna Dane: BP: Plans don't always fly.erikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)

Good. You can see our cute little apartment.

I sometimes think it does a lot more times than we are willing to admit. It's hard to trust but. Well, like I said. I'm optimistic.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: shiningspeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 02:40 am (UTC)
That sounds lovely.

I understand.
Lorna Dane: BP: Unwrittenerikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 02:50 am (UTC)

It's for inbetweentimes. I realized it's silly to look for the perfect place when I never end up staying anywhere all that long anyways. Of course now I am sorta kinda looking for the next step place. Sorta kinda.

Anyway. Figure when you can and let me know.
And I know I may as well have been in another dimension as much as I've been around but if you ever want someone to talk at... well, my cell's still the same.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: tousledspeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 02:58 am (UTC)
It's not bad to move a lot. You get to see so much of the world.

I will.
Lorna... I want to say thank you.
