Back to Reality

Rod reports that Michael Sandy, the 29-year old Brooklyn man who was lured by three teens via an online hookup site to a cruise park, where he was then beaten into a coma, has been taken off life support.

We all need to be a little angrier about this blatant, vicious attack. And please, if you're going to hook up, think about meeting in a populated, public place like your corner coffee shop first.

And yeah, I'm gonna go there...why isn't there a little more talk about this around the gay blogosphere? I'm a little out of the loop in catching up on my reading, but the premeditated, obviously planned and targeted nature of this attack makes it as reprehensible as Mathew Shepard's. Is it just too sad to write about? Are we just too jaded these days?

Don't be.

Things To Be Happy About

1. The comforting whirr of a PowerBook fan.

2. The smile of a Boxer as he allows you to rub his belly. Oh, and the impending Rapture.

3. The tart, tangy taste of a young Mexican's shaved snizz.

4. Making all your bill payments on time so you don't have to worry about "credit" "reports".

5. A perfectly ripe person who lets me "in" on the joke.

My, but the drive to work today was stressful! The highway seemed to be full of "busy people" all in the same rush to get to their destination, whether it was work, family obligations or Check Into Cash (in order to avoid adverse "credit"). I had my first meeting at 9 a.m. I was there a full five minutes early, so I was able to enjoy a fresh, hot coffee, complete with my "treat," a MetRX bar. As the meeting began, I said a tiny prayer of thanks that I did not live in fear in some shithole like Duluth.

Have a blessed, wretched day! One of 'em, at least.

this is a ballad for the good times

Not much to say but that Blur's "Battery In Your Leg" still brings me close to tears.

you could be with me...

And that guitar...that say anything else would be masturbatory and superfluous.

Tip Your Waitresses, 'cuz They Look Funny When They Lean Like This

I was a little late for work this morning, because someone just did not want to poop.

And then I had to let the dog out!
