the short description is a bette davis quote, and it is cool.

weddinged today. that was a very nice ceremony. people who spend months in the wilds of africa emerge with startling clarity as to the idea of marriage (*cough cough* - i think you know what rude remark i'm thinking of, don't you?) and it was a very un-pretentious, affectionate affair. no religious references were made. they just liked each other and quoted from an inaugeration speech (that was random, but appropriate, the quote was nice but i forget it). i wrote them an important note in their guestbook regarding the importance of kids' names.

everyone just put up with each other for a solid schoolyear. everybody take 3 months apart now. you'll get your shit in order.

everybody's so fucking tense (myself included - in fact i am worse because i have a cold that is making my brain swell up against my skull and am struggling with anger again). i'm going back to being an apolitical recluse.

"THE EQUALIZER" BY CLINIC IS A FANTASTIC SONG and can be heard in the park scene in the movie "thirteen". go see. listen. awesome.

while we're at it.

I LOVE THE FILM "THIRTEEN"

it is a little exaggerated, but an appropriately exaggerated truth. the scene where the dad drills mason (the main character's older brother) for what is "wrong", mason rolls his eyes and walks away - that's a great statement.
