Living
I've been undergoing such a transition since the beginning of this year, since my I got my medications fixed. I went from wanting to die (which is distinct from making a plan to kill myself; I never quite got there) to not wanting to die. Which was nice. La...

And then one day, Andrew Sullivan links to your Essay
I know I think this is a bigger deal than it probably is, but I'm still pretty pumped about this. I wrote an essay, "The Uncanny John Phillip Sousa," that was published last summer by the New Haven Review. So when the Dish linked to an NPR story about peopl...

Election Day!
This morning I dropped Lily off at school and then Mae and I went to the firehouse on Ellsworth St to vote.   There was a pretty good turnout. Nice line but not too long, and entirely indoors. Which was good because it was cold as shit outside.  I showed my...

Weigh-In Wednesday: Fuck it, I Fucking Give UP
So I got undressed this morning and stood on the scale and it said "294.2." That's 4 pounds since last week and 14 pounds in the last two weeks. Which doesn't make any sense because my close fit better and I look smaller and it's not like I'm lifting weight...

February 1, 2013, AKA #haterfriday
Things I've hated so far today, and it's not even 9:30 EST yet: The song "Africa" by Toto. Not for the weird colonial overtones of the its video (although that's pretty bad) but because of the following lyric: The wild dogs cry out in the night As they grow...

Stations of the Cross
