10:32 pm - Hiya World
It's only been three years since my last confession.

I moved to Seattle.

I no longer work for the government.

I sometimes feel bored and depressed on days I don't go to work.  That's weird.

Is that weird?

7:45 pm - Update
Well, yes, I suppose it has been quite some time since my last post. But I work for the government now, so that gives me opportunity to update my LJ a bit more often.

Thanks for the nudge...you know who you are.

I got married last August.

I gragitated from college (with a B.S. in sociology and an emphasis in shouted-over-the-espresso-machine neo-Foucaultian miltarism).

I turned 30.

And now I work for the government. I passed a drug test and a criminal background check and everything (yeah, I know that makes me such a bore).

Such problems with authority I've been having lately. What did Freud call it, "the generalized other?" Or the "undifferentiated other?" Well whatever other has been a royal pain in the ass as of late.

The loss of both that braindead chick and the pope within the span of a few days! I'm inconsolable. I'm so broken up there's shit running down my leg and I don't even care.

The minor league baseball park where players like Jose Canseco and Miguel Tejada suited up as pimply faced single-A-level neo-pros was torn down this week to make room for a new Super Wal-Mart. So much for luring a minor league team back to Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. But, alas, there will be no shortage of made-in-China-bicycles (full suspension mountain bikes for under $60, which also happen to not work for more than a week, if at all), no shortage of made-in-Indonesia textiles (clothing and quilting that is neither well made nor fashionable), and no shortage of obese teenagers exiting the superstore, arms full of fast food and hydrogenated snack things.

Wal-Mart has, however, been sure to secure significant advertising space on the local TV stations and the nearby NPR radio affiliate (though that's innocuously called "underwriting," not advertising) -- advertising in which they tout their good public works and community involvement.

Since my dear cat Leo died, Robin and I have adopted a sock monkey named Rosco.

Considering Robin made this sock monkey, you maybe can't say we adoped Rosco.

Rosco is blue. And he doesn't smell funny because he was created from new, never-been-worn-by-people socks.

Some very important thoughts on some very important people:

1. Has anyone noticed Saddam Hussein's striking good looks during his trial in Iraq udring the past week? With that beard (instead of the hoaky moustache), he reminds me somewhat of a Mexican soap opera star or something. Stunning. (This new Iraqi president looks stupid. Where's the Pentagon fing him?)

2. Did anyone see Margaret Thatcher at Reagan's funeral? The real question here is "would you?" Or would you rather Nancy?

U.S. Denies Iran Report of Bin Laden's Capture

Of course the reports have been denied. He's not scheduled to be captured until, say, one month before the presidential election.
