Salutations

Pinocchio (pronounced [piˈnɔkːjo] in Italian) is a fictional character that first appeared in 1883, in The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, and has since appeared in many adaptations of that story and others. Carved from a piece of pine by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village, he was created as a wooden puppet, but dreamt of becoming a real boy. The name Pinocchio is a Tuscan word meaning "pine nut" (the standard Italian term is pinolo pronounced [piˈnɔːlo]), a compound of Italian pino meaning "pine" and occhio meaning "eye".

Was staring at the stars tonight. Watching them flicker, and trying to imagine other worlds that might exist around them. Went to pub earlier to play darts, and started to imagine the dartboard pattern as a vortex, pulling the dart toward its center. My last shot I got a double 17 and a bulls eye, the two remaining that I needed. Wasn't too sharp for most of the game though, I kept hitting 3's and 13's.
