Coffee and Ice-TSTABLER and BENSON enter the station with big smiles on their faces. MUNCH looks up from his desk as they walk past him, and then he looks back down again with indifference.MUNCH: Where have you two been?STABLER: Oh you know, here and there.MUNCH: You're late.STABLER and BENSON ignore MUNCH. They are determined not to let criticism affect them today.BENSON: (To STABLER) I think that's the first real breakfast I've had in two months.MUNCH: (Keen) You went out to breakfast?BENSON: (Ignoring MUNCH, to STABLER) We should really do that more often. God I'm full, but a good full.STABLER: I told you that place was great. How about that French toast?MUNCH: (Interested) French toast?BENSON: (To STABLER) I swear I've never had anything like it.STABLER: (Nodding his head in agreement.) And those pancakes?BENSON: (Closing her eyes as if trying to recall the taste and save it in her memory forever.) Melt in your mouth.MUNCH: You had pancakes?!

Dropping Dead9-20-06Earlier today in Psych class, I caught myself wondering, "what would happen if I just dropped dead on the spot?" I mean, total and random system failure. Out of nowhere, I would just die. Where would my body land? Would I slump over in my seat or would I lean to the side and lay crumpled like scratch paper on the floor?What would people do? How would my peers react to my death? Immediately? Would they have the misconception that I fell asleep? Would the class try to help me, or would they assume that it's useless and just leave me there?How would the teacher react? Would he bend over and feel for a pulse? Would he poke me with a ruler? When he realizes that I am dead, would he cover his mouth in shock? Would he stay calm, or would he start shaking and cursing in his fear and anxiety? "Oh, shit. Oh my God, Oh Jesus...Fuck! She's dead!" Would he even care? Would anybody?Would there have been signs of an illness before my death, and would anybody have noticed if there had been?
CuttingWhat's one cut on your wrist,One lie being told,One promise being broken,One life being taken.Just think of who you're hurting,It's not just youIt's your friends, family and even enemies.They all love you,So why do you feel they don't?It's not helping anyone,Not even you!!So just stop what's killing everyone else but yourself!

HumphI forced my lips into a smile,And tried to make my eyes do the same.But failed, leaving them dark inside.You saw the truth hiding behind the lies,And asked me one more time."Are you sure you're OK?Is there nothing I can do?"I tried again to reignite the spark,But the flame wouldn't catch.The smile left my lips.So I simply replied'I told you, I'm fine,I just need some space'Hoping that you would get the hintWhich I placed within my words.Unfortunately you missed the signs completely,Attempting to interfere again"I just think you need some help,There could be a way to stop it..."Oh how I wish there wasBut there isnt.'Really, I'm Fine, just leave me alone,I'll work it out myself OK?'She'd never buy that,Especially with the desperation in my voice.But anything's worth a try."No not OK! It's what you always say!It's never true, I'm not sure it ever will be!"'This time it is, I promise, I'll be OK!'I noticed your eyes as you glanced at your watch,"Look, I have t
