Midway Upon A Time In Dark Wilderness Far, Far Away

The show ended past 1am. And for some bizarre reason, I decided that the air was fresh and it was a good time for a walk the 2.5 km home. Passed by a couple of drunks, and one guy who was holding on to this really cute girl, but at the same time with this other guy sort of enjoying biting the guy’s T-shirt… ok nevermind.

The interesting part of course, were the wild dogs. I have no idea why dogs tend to not like me, though it could be the fact that I like cats, that I (apparently) have feline photo-tendencies, or just that I sort of, you know, can’t… freaking… stand… dogs. I mean, they don’t play fair. One rascal dog barks and they’re on you like a pack of… you know, dogs. Ah, but… prepared, I was. Beware, they should. Not that I actually whacked any doggie butt as much as it was deserved (my bark is worse than their sap), but tips are: 1. Have a umbrella ready, and 2. Open your arms wide – it exaggerates the size. But for the first time, I really did enjoy my first public Darth Sidious impression, even if the audience was canine.

Midway upon the journey of our life
I found myself in a dark wilderness
For I had wandered from the straight and true.

Ten points to whoever who knows where that came from. Hmm… much of the Google I sense in you. Bah.

ehee... I can laugh now, but I'd rather dogs than evil-intentioned humans :)

That sounds familliar for some reason.

Did we read that in Inferno?

And... ten points to Sneexe. Opening lines of Inferno by Dante Alighieri, sometimes known as "Hell". The original Italian goes:

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura
che la diritta via era smarrita.
