|joel: So here's a question. Say you sneeze really hard and a tentacle pops out of your nose. It's still connected and just wriggling around. Do you try to pull it out or cram it back in?
joel: I'm 50/50 on this one
marin: taking as read that the tentacle is unexpected...
marin: I'd give it a few experimental tugs
marin: see how that felt
joel: ...would you expect a brainsquid to come out? If so, you know something I don't
marin: I could be a Cthulhoid in disguise
marin: you don't know
joel: but I'd be afraid that if it's been up there this long, it might be better to leave it
joel: slow news day here, by the way
marin: But if it seemed to come out without any major pain, I'd probably keep pulling
marin: If there was pain, I'd most likely leave it where it is and head to the hospital
joel: that's a pretty fair assessment
marin: Cramming it back up is not an option
marin: I hate seafood
marin: especially the smell
joel:I'd check and see if anyone else saw first
joel: I'm afraid if I pulled it out I wouldn't be psychic anymoreConversations with Joel...

I thought you all would be interested in the conversation I've been having with an old high school friend on the topic of Prop 8. We disagree on some basic principals, but it's really nice to be able to have an intelligent conversation with someone who can get beyond emotion and into fact. |

|Ryan Page: so as I was walking bailey this morning
Ryan Page: we're passing somebody's drive way and he picks something up in his mouth...
Me: uh oh
Ryan Page: it takes me a moment to figure out what it is and I tell him to drop it...
Ryan Page: yeah... it was a dead rat covered in ants
Ryan Page: he seemed very confused that I would tell him to drop it
Me: DID NOT NEED TO KNOW THAT
Ryan Page: uh... I mean it was a cupcake
Me: Oh. that's ok then
Ryan Page: yeah... he's a dog
Ryan Page: and apparently rats are on the menu.
Me: Was he actively eating it or just carrying int around?
Ryan Page: just carrying it
Ryan Page: only for a couple of seconds
Ryan Page: like he wanted to take it wherever we were going
Ryan Page: ... hunting dog, remember
Ryan Page: and this was a somewhat fresh rat

Next year, for my birthday, I'd like to not have to plan every detail myself. |
Think you've got it bad? My birthday's on fucking Christmas.

Ryan's step-grandfather Charlie passed away today. He was 89. I never had a granddad, and he was the closest I came. I loved him quite a bit. |
Ryan is in Oregon and I can't hold him. His grandmother, Jean, is in Los Altos, and I can't comfort her. We'll all see each other this week, but for now, when the pain is freshest and the most raw, I'm alone.
Thank you Animal, for making me giggle. I needed that.
|May. 14th, 2010 @ 03:06 pm In the Bay Area for a bit|
|Hey gang! My mom has had some surgery, so I'll be up in the Frozen North to look after her this coming week. I won't have a lot of gettin' out time, but I hope to make an appearance or two at KoC. First one, hopefully this Sunday.|
Hope to see you there!
