Strange Brew

The air outside my office window has a moist, pale green cast. I think this is what summer in the San Fernando Valley is gonna be like. People are complaining about the humidity, but come on, it's not Lufkin humid by any stretch.

Finally saw The DaVinci Code last night. It kept me tuned in, mostly to see how R. Howard would handle Brown's story. Odd changes, particularly the ending. There was so much more depth to the book; that's what bothered me most.

I'm ready for a change from the Laminate Gallery. Never have I felt so micromanaged under such poor management. Totally disempowering. Ithaca College is still wonderful, though. I'm hanging on to this place as long as I can.

Life's peculiar. Hopefully I'll be posting more regularly again, now that I'm well into therapy and feeling more confident than I have in eons.

Someone from Mesquite, Texas visited my site this week! Shout out to you!

Jay Hooks

One of my pasttimes is Googling old friends and acquaintances, like Jay Hooks. Jay Hooks was one of my early childhood friends, like when I was a toddler through 7 years old. What I remember about Jay was his Kiss posters and albums (at 7 years old? must have been later on, when we moved back to Texas), taking baths together (definitely when we were younger than 7), and his early rebellious nature.

Here's a clip of him playing in Germany. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find out where he is now.

Where are you, Jay?

Love Life Ad

The Swiss got it right. I wish this ad could air every morning during the Today Show and every afternoon during Oprah.

Gay Marriage

I just made myself watch George W. Bush give his pathetic appeal for the anti-gay marriage amendment. What a JOKE this guy is. Such an outrageous pander to the quivering-scared religious conservative homophobic bunch. Thank GOD Mary Kay Letourneau can marry her former sixth grade student in a legally recognized heterosexual union. I'm SO glad that Mary Kay and Vili Fualaau can live in priviliged, legally upheld, wedded bliss.
