I mean, it's good that at least in some parts of the country we don't feel like we have to huddle together for warmth and protection anymore, but is it GOOD in a larger sense? I don't know. Even someone as atomistically hermitic as myself likes the idea that there's an area of major US cities that I can go and be among my homosexual brethren and sistren. I don't want to see and gays and lesbians just become invisible again, this time by total homogenization and assimilation into the mainstream, leaving behind all that is fabulous to be just like the straights (except liking dick/pussy) so they'll like us, diluted into the rest of society like a drop of a fabulous cobalt blue dye into ten gallons of water. Yeah, the blue's still there, but if you can't detect it without advanced optical or chemical equipment, it's just lost.

Anyway, nothing but love and fuzzy best wishes to both of them, and here's to hoping they don't become strangers. Both blogs will remain linked in the sidebar indefinitely. You never know when the blogging bug will bite again!

The funniest reaction to the news, though is this:

Also, I now know where to go to cruise! I saw at least three gay couples, and one or two singletons, walking about. I was with my sister, mother, and grandmother, so I couldn't really go up to them all, "Hey, you guys want a threeway?" though. Still, good to know.

If you go you out tonight or just stay in, raise a glass of whatever you're having to me!

We're redoing my room this week, and, even though I'm not doing most of the painting and stuff, I've still had to move all my crap, and it is not fun. And all the cleaning and sanding and crap sucks, too. So unless I find a big, burly butch gay with lots of big, burly friends who will do all that kind of stuff, I'm just going to stay in my old room.
(You can start yelling and/or shaking your head in disgust at me...... now, Scott.)

I've said before that everyone's really nice, but as I've also said, they're very, very low-key and don't make for a stimulating work environment. Most of them are a lot older than me and have been there since the dawn of time (some of them have been there almost as long as my parents are old, if not longer), so we don't have a whole lot in common. And they're engineers: not exactly the most raucous bunch normally anyway.
Also, frankly, I just ain't feeling it. I don't know if I'm even cut out for the traditional workplace; I just don't feel comfortable. I really think I was born to freelance, but that's a dangerous and not terribly stable path. Could I find enough work? Live with no benefits? Would I even know how to go about actually doing it? I find it a lot to ask of my parents, who have been so incredibly supportive of me, financially and emotionally, for nearly twenty-five years now, far longer than a lot of parents support their kids, to bear with me why I try to feel my way through the thorny labyrinth of self employment and hustle up enough work to not be a total deadbeat because I don't like getting up early and wearing slacks. And there's a part of me that fears the possible massive failure of trying such a route, as well as fear that if I leave a good gig like I have now, I'll never get another chance and will be a real loser and burden to my family.
So that's where I'm at. I'm so fun!

Your Score: Pure Nerd
69 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 26% Dork
For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.
The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.
