  1. An interesting article about a gay man in Cairo and all that he goes thru to get out alive. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/01/egyptian-refugee

    Thank you for your brief comment. Sometimes only a few words are sufficient.

    I don't know, sometimes it just comes out that way.

    I suppose it matters whether you've been propositioned by a sixteen year old. You want to say yes, but you know you have to say no.

    Yes, you can never tell whether someone is nice or not.
  6. Will, thank you for your comment. Can't give out secrets, but this could have a happy ending.
  7. Will, thank you for your comment. Yes, I tend to seek the dark side. When I was reading Boy Erased today, I came across the part where Garrard Conley was orally raped by a fellow student who in turn called Garrard's mother and said her son was gay. Frankly, I couldn't believe that occurred, but it was true. And, then, Garrard's father told him if he was going to be openly gay, he could not live in the family home. He had shit happen to him, but he had the courage to tell his tale. Thankfully, he didn't pull any punches.
  8. Well, it certainly took a while to do it, but I've finally embraced one more facet of social media by adding Twitter to my Facebook account. The only difference is my presence on Twitter will be solely via my nom de plume Carl Holiday. I don't know if it matters, but my username is @CarlHoliday1. I haven't created a hashtag yet, but I'm certainly on a roll.

  9. Once again, disaster has been diverted. The VA actually did mail the refill for my mood stabilizer and I have filled the daily dosage cups with the required number of pills. Now, all I have to do is convince myself that I have a chance to reestablish some sense of sanity to my crazed mind. You see, at this moment in time I'm not all that certain I can catch the upswing when it comes along. And, worse, I'm not all that certain I want to. Life is the shits right now and I can't see it getting any better.

  10. It's surprising how being mentally ill and still being able to see out from inside your mind. You'd think if you were off a bit, you wouldn't be able to have a sane thought, but it's not true because your outer mind tries to keep everything sane and normal while your other mind, the one that's diseased, still thinks it's in control when it can't be because that isn't how the rules were written. The bad part about all of this was I could see it coming when I knew I didn't have enough pills to last me until I went totally off the deep end. I know it's not your fault and honest I don't blame you in the least for not being able to care, but you see things aren't turning out as they should and I may have to take drastic action to keep the keel in the water while the wind buffets my main sail.

  11. It's official and please don't spread it around, but I've fallen into an overpowering, blinding melancholic haze because somebody forgot to reorder his medication. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

  12. In this week’s New Yorker there is an incredible short story by upcoming gay writer Bryan Washington. It is titled “Waugh” and mostly takes place mostly in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston, Texas, through which Waugh Drive makes its way. The gritty and graphic story is about the hard life of hustlers on the streets of a big city and what they have to do to not only get something to eat, but also to keep clean. If you can’t get a copy of the zine, go to newyorker.com and click on Podcasts to hear Bryan read his story. As a sidelight, Bryan has two novels out and a collection of short stories is set to hit the shelves in March ’09.
  13. Thank you for your comment. Okay, I'll give you this synonym.
  14. Thank you for your comment. Having been married to a girl from the darkest jungles of Arkansas, though she hated chitlins and her mama toasted their peanuts in the oven.
  15. Thank you for your interesting comment. It's a shame I didn't come across that, too.
