Charles is schooling me on Monsanto, hence the title…
Whoa…super slow day at work. Once again, I’m not traveling down to Georgia for Easter, but that’s okay. I’ll be down in Savannah in May and then the standing family reunion this summer. Also, NOLA later this summer if I can swing it. When I go down this summer I’m going to try to find my car title — I think it’s in storage. Hazard of moving from a three bedroom house to a one-bedroom apartment. — or get a replacement so I can trade the Maxima in for something more reliable. It means having a car payment again after being free of that annoyance for many years (13 I think actually) but it’s just time. I’m starting to feel human again…Although every once in a while I feel like I’ve made a horrible mistake and I call my mom and cry for an hour or so and she reminds me that there was something providential about my move here. And I believe her. Things are smoothing out, every day a little more. So I’ll continue forward. There’s still work to be done I suppose.
And we’re going to the batting cages tomorrow which is just making my little day. I’m going to try to squeeze both the cages and dance into the one day — assuming I don’t get talked into going day drinking somewhere with the boys. They’re bad influences.
Before I head off to find some Lenten shrimp somewhere, just wanted to throw a few things at you because the links have been piling up and I need to clean my house. Speaking of, someone’s been reading my diary:
As an addendum to the pink equal sign all over Facebook in support of gay marriage (“It’s not enough that you think people should just be free to do what they want, you have to change your f*cking profile picture so you’re not some kind of monster? It’s just tedious…” ~Charles (liberties taken with that quote)), here’s a quote from another friend of ours that sums up my exact feelings on the matter:
“I have adopted a political position thoroughly in the mainstream of my demographic, have done literally nothing to support the cause, and now I demand that I be celebrated for my courage!”
And this has nothing to do with my personal feelings on the issue. But it has everything to do with my personal feelings on the issue of the townspeople ruled by the naked emperor. This is a truly fascinating look at the issue from a Christian conservative. You should read it. It may surprise you.
So that silly dream I had about that silly movie Cruel Intentions made me go back and re-watch the genius Dangerous Liaisons. Truly great performances and acerbic insight into some things that have been interesting me personally lately. I’ll say this: if you see yourself here, may God have mercy on your soul.
My grandma also used to make a version of this which, if I’m ever fortunate enough to host a proper Easter feast, I may try to make and serve with these. I’ll also have this, prepared lovingly in one of these. You should totally come over.
So, this kid is awesome. I’d have a hard time being mad at him. But I guess you’d have to be so he doesn’t become Frank Abagnale somewhere down the road…
Bahahahaha! We all know him….
Love, love, love, love. What a lucky kid.
