Pride

I had to travel to San Francisco this weekend, and therefore I had the good fortune of participating in the 41st San Francisco Pride Parade. My lucky star shone on me for I was able to drag Brilliant Sulk to walk in the pride with me. Yes you heard that right. WE. WALKED. IN. THE. [...]

A-Ha

As I was sitting in the cafeteria during lunch hour today, I noticed that the music selection has been veering towards the 80s this week. "Did you notice the music?" I asked my one co-worker who has transferred to the new office with me. (So yes I am now surrounded by actual people every day [...]

Spitting Blood

I am sitting here trying to catch up on the million things people just piled on my desk with a pool of blood in my mouth. I don't know why but I keep on thinking of Brat Pitt from Fight Club. I don't remember whether he lost any tooth inside the Fight Club or not. [...]

I suspect that you have been seeing this picture popping up on your Facebook and/or Twitter stream this week. I did. Like you, I had a visceral response to it. FUCK YEAH! Was exactly what I said to the monitor as I responded to the plea on Facebook "This was an ad made by bodyshop. But Barbie [...]

  Sometimes, for no reason at all, I would get a severe attack of homesickness. Without any provocation, my heart would ache and I would get a sensation of emptiness and at the same time heaviness inside my stomach. I recognize that feeling well. It is an intense loneliness that comes from a herd animal [...]
