HOME YAY

And I sure did forget to post that I was going to be off the grid in rural Maine. So I'm back, and I'm never ever going to be able to catch up on the internets.

I'm so vain

Speaking of hair, I thought that the medium brown I dyed my hair would fade out into something that would blend into my natural color.

Well, I was wrong. When I pull my hair back, I have an inch-wide strip of golden blonde framing my face. It looks RIDICULOUS. But my hair is sad and I don't want to dye it again, so I'm stuck.

Let's beeeee friendssss

I've made the executive decision that I'm going to start posting daily entries about my stupid life. I like it when other people do that, so it seems reasonable that I should do the things I appreciate in others.

Also, here are some other places I use:

Flickr

Twitter

I am on Facebook in a not-really sort of way, and also sometimes Whitechapel. Warren Ellis is a little bit scary (or as another friend who shall remain nameless put it, "psychotic in the most adorable way"), though. And I'm very bad at forums, too, so the time I spend there is pretty minimal. Usually just a morning browse.

An open letter to Food

Dear Food,

I miss you.

Love,

PS. Tell Booze I said, "Hey!"
Craig Ferguson (my favorite late night host, since I broke up with Keith Olbermann) did an uncharacteristically serious and fascinating interview with Lance Morrow about his (fairly old) book, Evil: An Investigation.

This is a subject in which I'm interested and spend a lot of time thinking about. Writing as I do, the question of what is evil (and in a narrower sense, what makes a "bad guy" versus a "good guy") is a fairly natural one. I do not, myself, believe in the concepts of good and evil. I believe in science. I believe in free will. I believe in choices. Man's ability to use the rational mind and make those choices is both an incredible gift and a terrible curse. When someone makes a choice that one finds unconscionable, it's tempting to rationalize that choice as being evil, or as they mention in the interview, born of illness, rather than accepting that a human being would make a decision that does not fit one's accepted system of beliefs.

I'm going to pick up that book, I think.

United Steel Workers of Montreal, you guys. United Steel Workers of Montreal. I love them AND SO MUST YOU.

I've been listening to "Number 4" ALL DAY. Here. Download it. You'll see.

The Ongoing Saga of Ow

The left hinge of my jaw is so swollen that I can't even talk, much less chew anything. I can barely get my pills between my teeth. I think I have some grits in the cupboard (which may or may not be left over from when my Southern grandmother was still alive...in 1997), and I made a big pot of squishy lentil soup yesterday. With that plus whey protein powder and Carnation Instant Breakfasts, it's possible that I won't starve to death before my next appointment.

I have labs on Monday and a rheumatology appointment on Tuesday.

I am really, really tired of life.
