Somewhere between Bell's Palsy and death

How do you even respond?
Confession time: When BFKAS found me, there were some concerns. The first one? If the reason she was contacting me was because she or a sibling needed a body part. The other one, however, came after I found out I had a brother, and it was a two-parter: 1) Was he a retarded dork with whom I wouldn't want to be seen in public (he's not), and 2) was he someone I may have DATED or (shudders) nailed in my wilder college days? And he's neither, because he's gay as well as quite a bit younger than even my youngest coed conquest. But the reason the second point was so crucial is because I found out through the mediator handling my case that the bio-fam has lived no more than a half-hour away from me my entire life, therefore making it quite conceivable that I may have interacted with one or more of them in any fashion. Case in point? When I was in college, my sister was on campus with me (albeit on a different part of campus), and I partied with quite a few of my brother-in-law's best friends. So when I read over at Mac's that our favorite Illinois Republican nitwit Keyes is making the leap to incest from gay marriage, it took me a minute to digest the sheer stupidity of his argument.

I mean, yeah, the thought did cross my mind. That being said, it was something I entertained semi-seriously for like, a minute at the bar one night with my best friend and her brother, and did I mention they lived a HALF. HOUR. AWAY? How many adoptees are that close in proximity to their bio-roots? Anyway, what I want to know is, how do explain the adoptees who're CONCEIVED OF INCEST? Does Keyes know, or did his handlers forget to tell him, that those kids aren't conceived by gay sex or turkey basters? Seriously, I can't even wrap my head around that.

How embarrassed and horrified the Reublicans must be by that moron. Betcha Jack Ryan and his thing for public blow jobs must look awful good about now.

In the meantime, I ordered me some new specs today, and they're a definite departure from what I've had the past four years. The ones I have now are dainty. The new ones? Well, let's just say they're like nothing I've seen on anyone in NWI yet. But I'm excited.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
