My favorite song of 2007

Sometimes I think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to, I’m clocking that game
Everyone’s a winner, we’re making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name

Prayer in C – Lily Wood & the Prick

Yeah, you never said a word
You didn’t send me no letter
Don’t think I could forgive you

See our world is slowly dying
I’m not wasting no more time
Don’t think I could believe you

Yeah, our hands will get more wrinkled
And our hair will be grey
Don’t think I could forgive you

Boys of Life – Paul Russell

IMG_9823

A sleazily well-written gay Lolita, with an gay alcoholic 16-year from Kentucky as our protagonist. Reading it as teenager years ago, I remember being shocked and turned on, a little repulsed and a lot impressed. I just picked it up again, reading it in one marathon 4-hour jaunt. It has stood the test of time quite well, still a little creepy but like all of Russell’s books grabs your attention and keeps it. Paul Russell is one of my favorite authors, in addition to Boys of Life other great reads of his include The Salt Point, Sea of Tranquility, War Against the Animals and The Coming Storm.

Paul Russell quotes:
“Just because you pretend the universe doesn’t have teeth doesn’t mean you won’t get eaten in the end”

“I’ll put it to you simply: love is the enemy. That’s my conclusion. We should all live in our little monk cells and never venture out”

“Waiting, he thought, was the most miserable condition a man could find himself in. His whole life, he had been waiting for one thing or another”

“He wanted to toast mad idealism, forbidden desires, the dreams that drove one to criminal acts. He wanted, quite starkly, oblivion”

“When he got a story urge, there was nothing to do but grab a pen and write. Otherwise it was too much like getting a hard-on and not jerking off”

I’m a Jedi foodie, my cultured and refined palate likes some Lime Cucumber Gatorade, Cinnamon Sugar Pringles and potted meat (it’s BOTH chicken and pork meats, ya heard). Banana Goliath, hot-off-the-grill arepas, pinkberry chocolate hazelnut with strawberry and mango boba, I am a culinary master. #gordonswife John-Jernigan Ramsay

National Adoption Day was 11/21/14. We had our adoption finalizations at the Miami Children’s Museum, and all of the dependency Judges had their own museum/courtrooms. I only had one little nugget adopted this year.

I find myself desperately poor, I don’t even have enough money to get a haircut or pay my cell phone bill. But I can afford to go on three dates, with Simone de Beauvoir, Armistead Maupin and one of my great loves Edmund White.

I Won on Fanduel

I chose my NFL team and deposited $25 into my fanduel account this weekend, entering 2 $10 tournaments and one $5 tournament. I won $18 in each of the $10 tourneys, and I was ranked in the money to win $12.50 in the big $5 tournament, but got pushed out by Tom Brady’s success in the late game :( Julio Jones and Eddie Lacey helped me out, Roll Tide! But if I had simply chosen Peyton Manning and Gronk (who just scored a TD) instead of Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham I would have won around $100. Next week 1st place $7500!

An enlightening story from a man who grew up in the foster care system and aged out without being adopted. Take the five minutes to listen to his story, and you’ll be glad you did. If you don’t have the time to watch the whole video, scroll to the 5:28 mark and watch until the end. #adoptuskids
