Anti-depressing news day post.

Ok, so there’s been a lot to rant about today.  Here are some pictures. This picture captures my relationship with my fiancee every morning.  I’m the cat, she’s the dog. And here’s a regretful lizard. See?  There are still reasons to smile.  Heh. [Read more...]

Happy anniversary mom and dad!

My liberal, heathen, godless parents, who clearly have no family values, celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on Wednesday.  There was never any god keeping them together, just mutual affection.  They have produced two kids who view them as their best friends.  Both my brother and I have always called mom and dad first when we’re [Read More...]

Nun was actually a hero.

Yesterday I wrote a post about an 83 year-old nun trying to steal uranium that I got pretty much entirely wrong.  The nun is actually a hero.  She’s part of a group called the Plowshares Movement which does non-violent protests against nuclear arms. 1. absolutely nonviolent to people, 2. each actor claimed personal responsibility for [Read More...]

Allie at Hyperbole and a Half returns.

Allie of Hyperbole and a Half has put up her first post in a very long time.  It’s about living with depression and the miasma that precedes not wanting to live anymore.  Just like the rest of her work, is beautiful.  Her experience pretty much mirrors my own. And every direction was bullshit for a [Read More...]

83 year-old nun caught trying to steal uranium.

Well this is just weird. A federal jury has found an 83-year-old nun and two fellow protesters guilty of breaking into the Y-12 National Security Complex and defacing a uranium processing plant. Man, good thing she wasn’t aiding and abetting child rapists, otherwise her punishment may be to be made pope. I just…what was she [Read More...]

Abercrombie and Fitch CEO gives me my long-awaited reason to hate them: they don’t want you if you’re not skinny.

I’ve never had anything against Abercrombie and Fitch, other than the fact that most of the people I’ve met in my life who wear their brand turned out to be pretentious and insufferable.  But you can’t blame a clothing company for the character of the people who buy their clothes.  But still, there was a [Read More...]

Talk among yourselves.

Whatever contagion that my roommate has been carting around the house has found it’s way into me.  I’m going to spite it by awarding myself a three day weekend and resting.  So you all can talk among yourselves. If I’m wrong, and there is a heaven to which I must go before getting to spend [Read More...]
