I think I tend to argue with the source story as I write my way into and out of its tropes… and I’d show up in front of my laptop every writing day, cheerfully ready to pit myself against that story’s rules.
No One Wants to Pay to See Your Happiness
Instead, I stay up here, cowering without hiding, collecting without pooling. I dream that she yells at me, but when I wake up there’s only her stillness there. She’s tired, too tired for yelling or anything. New life we’ve brought into the world has us on the fritz in ways we’d not thought of — when the washing machine died on us yesterday, we thought the world might end, briefly, and soon recovered.
Make Me Famous For Saying This In 25 Years
The best thing to be in an automated society is a technician. I’m honing the skills to keep the wheels and computers running. If you’re working in any kind of service, manufacturing, or delivery role, your years are numbered, barring total industrial collapse.
He doesn’t come off as much of a father. For one, his daughter is married at age 19. That says a lot. That says escape. For another, her parents are divorced. For a third, the men she was killing were hiring prostitutes. These men knew the risks in doing this. So he doesn’t come off as a father figure to me, or an influence on her, and certainly not someone who really knows her, so I don’t much care what he has to say.
But then, regarding the accused, I figure she’s doing this for the attention involved, first and foremost. And what’s it matter if she’s lying or not? The fact of the matter is she’s going to get enough punishment from one murder as from 100. That’s one of the problems I see with the justice system. A guy who kills a child essentially gets the same punishment as a guy who kills a grown thug. Where’s the sense in that? Murder needs to be redefined as the killing of the innocent. Everything else should be degrees of manslaughter. And innocence is a very important word.
Seems to me that when this happens in Russia, it’s funny; when it happens in the MIddle East, it’s worth an invasion. Repression is repression is repression.
Yep I definitely believe these dogs chewed only the faces off of those stuffed animals. That seems entirely plausible and not at all an excuse to make a cute picture. (I am fucking great at sarcasm.)
This is a very important scandal. The voice of wrongfully accused dogs has gone unheard for too long. Please call your Senator. This injustice cannot stand.
I feel very strongly about this. #Fight4Dogz
I don’t trust these dogs. My dog chews any and all slippers left unattended, despises white people dancing, and feels entitled to a portion (roughly 100%) of all food consumed in the household. Basically, his assholery has engendered within me a distrust for all dogkind. But yeah, it does seem unlikely that they chewed the faces so neatly.
I don’t like the ammunition we use against one another. Pure folly, the jacket of is made of doubt, and of bitterness. Forged in our minds, not in defense, this alloy is made of aversion. We carried each other through the mire, only to turn on each other. In my mind’s eye there is no truer a…
This is beautifully written.
I’ve been trying to clear space in my head. For you, for our child, for things other than intoxicants.
Most of the time when you think I’m angry at you, I’m not. I’m angry at our finances, I’m angry at myself, I’m angry at myself in the past, I’m angry at my lack of motivation, I’m angry about this, I’m angry about that. Most of the time when you try to help by asking me what’s wrong, you become the object of my anger by virtue of doing so.
I’m sorry for that.
You are an attentive and dutiful mother thus far, and for this I am grateful. I couldn’t imagine a better wife.
I have to get ready for work. I love you.
Another fine example of Free Open Source Software is gmusicbrowser. I am using it on Xubuntu 13.10. Here I display a feature that many music players do not have, which is a context browser that lets you display the lyrics of the currently playing song! How fucking brilliant is that? And for the low cost of NADA, plus the freedom to peek at the code and potentially develop your own version, how can you complain?
