Not Gay, I Tell You!

Just riffing on yesterday's post.

Not Gay

OK, I'm going to venture into politics again...put on your safety goggles and helmets.
Senator Larry Craig--he's the latest anti-gay crusader who, by the strangest of coincidences, just happens to be gay. I can't decide whether it's more sad than funny or vice versa!
I want to thank my friend Derek for noticing that in Senator Craig's recent press conference he began by saying, "Thank you all very much for coming out today." Coming out, indeed. Priceless!

Middle Age

I see these guys. I see them! Do the younger ladies find their attention flattering, or pitiful?

Funny how much televangelists look like politicians. Oh wait, they are politicians.

I was digging through my drawer of old drawings and such at work, and noticed this little gem scribbled in the corner of some piece of paper. I don't remember the context in which it was created, but who cares! It made me laugh.

Do you ever feel like you aren't fully participating in your life? Like you aren't really experiencing your surroundings? As though your senses have retracted just a little (or a lot) and you just aren't all there? Perhaps it's a result of some trauma, or maybe a slow atrophy as a result of exposure to repetitive negative stimuli. Or maybe it's just laziness--like you've put yourself on autopilot.
Lately I'm attempting to engage life more fully. I like it, when I remember to do it, but it takes effort, and I often forget and inertia takes over.

Sometimes I get mad, and I realize how infantile I'm acting, but it's still hard to stop.

Feed Me

Just thinking about that Void we all seem to have inside, and why it's never quite filled. I guess it's also further commentary on our "Tubeness."

You: Tube

Let me set the scene: At work, on the second floor, my office is the most distant point from the restroom. So, particularly after having knee surgery, it takes awhile to get there, and the mind has time to wander.

On a recent trek, I was thinking about how, essentially, we are all just tubes. Things go in one end and come out the other. Tubes.

Of course, it's not that simple. For crying out loud, we are complex beings! For example, air enters and exits the same end. So, we're also bags, I guess.

Burnt Out

When you run out of creativity, you can always draw pictures about your lack of creativity.

Considering how closely the cerebral cortex resembles the small intestine, it's no mystery why their output is often so similar.
