crossposted from facebutt Missionaries came to my door. They were nice, they were young, they were male, they were white. They asked me if I was having a good New Years Day and I said yes, but if this was of the nature of a religious call, I could not entertain them. They asked why [...]
Social media has turned modern friendship into a pixellated bar that serves kittens, soundbites and RPGs. – A Sloman. Tony Scott, noted director and producer and brother of Ridley, committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. He left a note. He was 68.

Last night I fed Tom, Peggy, Ben, Paul, Keith and Jeff pork roast done with garlic, bacon and bay leaves (it made the house smell REALLY GOOD) and many, many vegetables, including beans and cauliflower and broccoli and beets and potatoes. Katie and her housemates were invited, but Katie was already on tap to do [...]
