 “I didn’t know Mouchette was a site in which anyone who signs up can create their own page”

April 25, 2008 at 8:25 pm

I am trying to understand Mouchette. I signed up to be a member of Mouchette’s website. When I did,  one of the questions I responded to was, “Why do you want to be Mouchette?”

I really don’t want to be Mouchette though. She turns into an Ophelia.

I’m not anything like them.

But I like the structure of Mouchette’s site. Sometimes I feel my mind operates in a similar manner- uncontrollable thoughts that divert my attention to the point where I need to take a really deep breath and quiet everything. Sometimes, when navigating through Mouchette’s site, there are quiet moments, when you reach something comparable to a dead end.

This is strange. I didn’t know Mouchette was a site in which anyone who signs up can create their own page. Weird…maybe not. It’s using the internet as it should be used.

This is the e-mail I got after signing up:
