DOSE:
6 g oral Syrian Rue (tea)

BODY WEIGHT: 160 lb


I wish I wrote this last night when I was under the influence of this insane drug.

Last night my friend Dick and I whip up a nasty tasting brew of syrian rue seeds and water. I crushed up 12 grams of the seeds in a coffee grinder and then boiled a tea pot of water. We separated the powder into two equal (eyeballed...so fairly equal) portions. We forced the awful tasting concoction down at around midnight.

About 30 minutes later I felt a really strong body high. I felt really light, yet really heavy at the same time. I was playing tony hawk underground and all of a sudden the ground in the game started to vibrate like an earthquake was going on. Then I closed my eyes and opened them but it felt like I opened them but they opened a split second after I opened them. That sounds like madness and maybe it is but thats what happened.

After 5 minutes of that I started to get a headache so I turned it off and told Dick that it was time to turn off the lights. He agreed. In this time he had just flipped out coz he saw jesus with devil horns and a satan goatee float by his head. At first I saw nothing but vibrate lights flashing and glowing, then they moved on to become like a volcano of sorts in the lower left corner of my eye. Then this giant pig's head came flying at me, taking up all of my field of vision, it opened its mouth and started breathing fire at me. I was still in pretty stable mind so I knew it wasnt real and laughed it off and told Dick about it. Then the basement wall turned into a giant crocodile/shark and it came swimming dangerously close to my face. This time I was scared, but by the 5th crocodile/shark I was accustomed to them.

Dick got up to puke and we decided it was time to go to bed. But once I lay down in bed I had a million different open eye dreams...they werent really visuals coz I knew they werent real but defnaly was dreaming without being asleep or even having my eyes closed. Like I saw clouds and fish and cartoon characters. Then the real hallucinations started. I was listening to the thirteenth step cd by a perfect circle and during one song, 'the noose' I saw this like field like a fairy field with little fairies dancing and green and purple vines stretching and growing rapidly all over the place. Then this couple appeared in a room in front of my and they started making out and touching and groping then they started to melt into the floor then they came falling out of the ceiling and then I thought about 'what if my mom comes in' and I imagined her walking in but I kept picturing this tall, skinny, blue alien. It had a large bulbous blue head and scrawny arms and legs. Its chest was adorned with a pinkish, purplish body armor type thing and it stated walking around my room. It stopped, looked at me and turned down this hallway. I got up and started to chase it calling 'come back mr alien! Come back!' (of course I didnt actually get up or say anything for that matter) and the alien started running so I did too. Then it started running really fast so fast I could barely see it. Then it jumped onto this space motorcycle thing and rocketed off on this pinking track against a blueish sky. It shot off so fast it was gone in a few seconds.

Well those are what I remember, I fell asleep soon after that I think. When I woke up at around 6:30 am I woke up and when I opened my eyes and these really bright flashing, pulsating lights were in the outer edges of both eyes. They lasted for about half an hour but the auditory hallucinations (buzzes, clicks, beeps, mumbled voices) lasted about an hour. The body high lasted until about lunch time today. This morning I also puked 3 times.

I'm still trying to decide if it was worth it.

I went to the nurse after 2nd period and told her I was feeling sick (I was very queasy) and she gave me tea and told me to lay on the bed. I slept from 3rd period thru 1st lunch and most of 4th period.

It was fun. But with some nasty hangover-type-things goin on.

Post script: I cannot remember if I wrote about the extreme sense of floating, falling, flying I had whilst lying in bed. I saw this spiraling void beneith me and I felt like I was falling down this neverending chasm.
