Darwin Wept! -or- What a Sad State W'ere In!?!

Well, it makes me want to cry. Unfortunately, most of you out there apparently don't find it as depressing as the rest of the educated world; and that, my fellow Americans, is what makes it even worse.

So sad...

I Am A Huge Bush Fan

...Sam Bush, that is.

And what'ya know? He turns out to be my 2nd official Nashville Celeb sighting since moving here over a year and a half ago.

I noticed him while waiting in line at the Belle Meade Liquor Store on friday, after picking up my weekend standard bottle of Il Bastardo table wine.

Goddamnit! I love this town!

A Rapid Social Devolution

I’m starting to sense the negative affects on my social skills that a life of self-induced introversion has lent me. I said the most asinine thing I think I could have said today, something I haven’t said since I was yukin’ it up in a fraternity in college. I don’t know why I said it. I don’t know how it came to cross my lips. I thought I had put such offenses to pasture long ago. It’s the work, I tell you. It’s the family obligations. It’s the long-distanced seclusion a life in Fairview has brought me. I hate that I said what I said. I hate that it came out of my mouth like it was something I would use in my everyday rants. Please believe me. I’m not a bastard. I swear. I don’t talk like that. Ok, maybe I did at one time, but not now.

Maybe it is still buried in me like a sleeping retrovirus waiting to burst from my gut and consume me with bigoted boils and judgmental bruises. Maybe I’m only kidding myself – the indoctrination of my upbringing and cultural biases can never be truly overcome or bettered. Maybe my subconscious still harbors such negatives.

Surely not, though. Right? Surely, that wouldn’t happen to an enlightened, somewhat educated schmuck like me, and yet, there is no denying that the words did come from my own mouth. I can’t deny it. There was a witness. She heard me say it. She heard me say, “God that’s so gay!”; and then it was silent.

I am sorry.

One More Wako Liberal Conspiracy, Right?

"They [fireants], along with armadillos*, are spreading northward from warmer climes. "

I wonder why. Hmmm? Oh, I don't know...
Could it be...
