What Was the Name of That Book?

I remem­ber read­ing a book–no, a series–in the ear­ly 90s or so. The clear­est mem­o­ry I have is that there was some sort of drug that made any­one who took it “perfect”–healthy, beau­ti­ful, ath­let­ic, etc. It was also addic­tive after just one dose, and there was no way to get off it–to stop tak­ing it […]

TotD: Carter Heyward on Love

Carter Hey­ward:

Love, like truth and beau­ty, is con­crete. Love is not fun­da­men­tal­ly a sweet feel­ing; not, at heart, a mat­ter of sen­ti­ment, attach­ment, or being “drawn toward.” Love is active, effec­tive, a mat­ter of mak­ing rec­i­p­ro­cal and mutu­al­ly ben­e­fi­cial rela­tion with one’s friends and ene­mies. Love cre­ates right­eous­ness, or jus­tice, here on earth. To […]

Lawn Sanity!

I detest grass. I’m so aller­gic that I con­sid­er the stuff a per­son­al attack. Beyond that, I’ve always con­sid­ered all the mon­ey and ener­gy that is put into ined­i­ble crops that aren’t even pret­ty to be a dis­gust­ing form of con­spic­u­ous con­sump­tion.

I cheered out loud when I read this arti­cle: The Incred­i­ble, Edi­ble […]

What’s the Opposite of Speed? Slowth?

We’re sup­posed to have the high­­est-speed res­i­den­tial ser­vice avail­able from Com­cast, dar­nit. I will say that the ser­vice is much faster than any­thing we ever got on DSL.

Books & Cute Photo

Total­ly unre­lat­ed to any­thing else: Squee! (Thanks, AMQ!)

For some odd rea­son, I got this weird notion about track­ing down as many of the books I’ve read as pos­si­ble. No, I don’t know why.

TotD: Eating and Drinking

This pas­sage remind­ed me of Sam:

Peo­ple ask me: Why do you write about food, and eat­ing and drink­ing? Why don’t you write about the strug­gle for pow­er and secu­ri­ty, and about love, the way oth­ers do?

They ask it accus­ing­ly, as if I were some­how gross, unfaith­ful to the hon­or of my craft.

Poly? Please to take survey!

Danielle Duplassie, MA, RCC, a Doc­tor­al Stu­dent in Human Sex­u­al­i­ty at The Insti­tute for the Advanced Study of Human Sex­u­al­i­ty, sent a request to one of the lists I’m on tonight seek­ing polyamorous peo­ple to take a sur­vey that is part of her research. It won’t even take you five min­utes. Go clicky!

Edit­ed: Whoops! […]

Monday and R.I.P. George Carlin

I guess every­body has heard, by now, that we lost George Car­lin last night. I’ve seen many arti­cles about him today, but I think Susie Bright did the best job of catch­ing his spir­it.

Today was a very Mon­­day-ish Mon­day. I’m grumpy and noth­ing feels right. The girl is off spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly, […]

Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately–my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to […]

Readings & Socializing

Note: This entry went in a total­ly dif­fer­ent direc­tion than where I thought I was head­ed! It got very long, and wan­dered around a lot. I got into some­thing that’s real­ly been eat­ing at me for a long time, though, and I’d real­ly appre­ci­ate some feed­back.

I should have my micro­phone tak­en away. I record­ed […]
