About this journal, redux

skull
This journal is now le morte. It is a dead branch on the intarwebs. Perhaps someday I will prune the branch entirely and delete my LJ account, but for the nonce it will linger as is.

Drop me a comment if you would like to be notified in the event I start blogging again, elsewhere.

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight.

About this journal

grinning
Late in 2005, I made this journal "Friends Only". I was not thrilled with making it so, but it solved a problem I was having.

Since that time, it's a mixed bag. Some posts are readable by anyone, some are "Friends Only".

Readers are welcome. If you would like to be added to my "Friends List" (what a poorly named feature!), leave a comment here.

The Inflatability of the Pope!

dancing devil
I was talking to one of the girls and she shared with me a joke one of her friends made, about how the Catholic church might deflect some of the current criticism if they would only reframe their stance on a significant issue; instead of focusing on the infallibility of the pope, they should focus on the infelatability of the pope.

Of course, I completely misunderstood her and thought she said "the inflatability of the pope". And frankly, I think that's a far better idea!



Think about it; wouldn't you be charmed by any church that had a giant inflatable cartoon pope set up in the yard? On maybe an inflatable Jesus? Or how about a pope made of thin ripstop mounted on a fan, making a dancing pope that waves his arms ecstatically?



I think I'm onto something here!

Or maybe I'm just on something.

The hair curtain dragging in my mouth

grinning
Since college (the first time), I've kept some combination of beard and mustache. I've also been fairly diligent about keeping it tidy. The beard is groomed short, almost stubble length, and the mustache neatly trimmed above the line of my upper lip.

Until recently.

I'm participating in a staged reading of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski. On the very first day of rehearsals, my dear directrix and stage mistress asked (insisted?) that I grow out my mustache for the role. Me, being innocent and gullible said, "Oh sure! Why not?"

What was I thinking? We're heading into the second month of working on this, and my 'stache is driving me mental! I've got this bleedin' hair curtain dragging in my mouth every time I open it to speak, drink, eat, kiss, et al.



It's getting long enough that I have to try to brush it sideways, parted at the filtrum. Yep, my mustache has flybacks. The 70's me would be so proud. It's long enough that I can pul and twist the ends of my mustache, like Snidely Whiplash. I'm "this" close to buying mustache wax.



My deepest gratitude to those few remaining lovelies who are still willing to kiss me whilst I'm in this state. Good sports, they are.
