But from here, I can pretend... I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don't last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle lke fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend."-Neil Gaiman, Sandman #48

Posted:I have actually not gotten any bruises so far... it like, oww, this hurts, then it goes away. My dad actually put my tennis balls in a drill press type thing to make perfect holes in my tennis balls, and had a special piece of metal to string them with... The only problem is thta they are white, so the moths think I'm a really, really big one, and keep fluttering around me while I spin.. : [image]http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/images/icons/rolleyes.gif">:------------------[/image]-Neil Gaiman, Sandman #48
