CJ Tremlett: 1969-2015 [25 Jun 2015|09:15pm]
Yes, it's been a long time since I posted. Several years, in fact. I pretty much went over to Facebook and haven't really been back since. The only reason I'm here is to let people I'm not in contact with on facebook know that CJ Tremlett, my wife of almost 20 years, has died of brain cancer this last march. She collapsed at home in December. We had no idea what happened, but as the pieces came together it became clear that she had something growing in her brain. The operation to take it out revealed she had a glioblastoma, which is a really nasty and aggressive kind of tumor. We had hoped we'd gotten it out early enough, and were working on therapy to help her regain the use of her right side, and make her strong enough to handle chemotherapy, radiation, and a ketosis diet. But after she took a bad turn at the step-down therapy center, and went back to the hospital with sepsis, we discovered two more tumors had grown back in an inoperable location. After that, it was hospice. She spent her last birthday there. She was dead a week before mine. This saturday is her second and final funeral, in keeping with our spiritual traditions. If you're hearing of this for the first time, please keep her in your thoughts.

is too late to get passing grade?

In which Birthistan suffers a mass exodus, Gary and Orly try, try again, Joseph Farah wags Jerome Corsi's dog, and the layers prove irrelevant.

happy new year 2011! [31 Dec 2010|08:51am]
It's upon us again - that change of time that never really changes anything.

All the same, I hope your next turn through the months is better, happier, more satisfying, and less drama-tastic than 2010, or 2009 for that matter.

Gary Numan - Crofoot - Pontiac MI - 10/25 [26 Oct 2010|12:39pm]
In 1979, I was 8 years old, and my parents listened to an oldies / soft rock station whose principal selling point was having really good updates on morning traffic patterns. When I heard "cars" for the first time it was like something flipped a switch in my brain. I didn't know music could sound like THAT. I didn't understand the lyrics at the time, but it had the coolest pre-MTV video I'd ever seen (this was the age when video pioneers were folks like Poco) and that sound... THAT SOUND!

15 Writers in more than 15 minutes [24 Oct 2010|10:52pm]
I was supposed to do this in fifteen minutes, and not think about it, and tag people... but screw it. I'm a writer. I can break rules. Here's my "fifteen," in some semblance of order.

Halloween 2010 [24 Oct 2010|04:03pm]
What a great party! If that was, indeed, the last of its kind, it was a great way to end the chain. Thanks to Jason and Ari for putting them on all these years, and allowing us to meet and make new friends, and hang onto old ones we don't see as often as we'd like. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you

Cat Fart Armageddon 2010 [11 Oct 2010|11:10pm]
So last night i discovered just how terrible cat farts can smell. Not exactly the greatest start to Coming Out day, but there you have it.

I was asleep in bed when something woke me. I'm not entirely sure what, anymore, but as soon as I was awake I noticed the smell. It was the ungodly, overwhelming, "a cat just took a shit" smell that kitty litter thankfully blocks from our sensitive noses, only ramped up to ten with the horrendous scents of dead fish, rotten eggs, burned tire rubber, and wet burning cardboard mixed in for an evil bouquet of intestinal malfeasance.

And leila was walking around the bed, making no noise whatsoever, with what might have been a guilty face...

Now, Leila's had some bad turns. She has had dingleberry issues, and one time she just looked at me, squatted down, made a weird GLURF noise, and proceeded to blow out a frightening machine-gun load of cat turds right on the bedroom floor for no discernible reason. Sometimes I think this has to do with the ongoing turf war between her, her sister Fionna, and Spider, who is both invader and current top cat. And sometimes I think it's just because she's a doof.

So you can imagine, given how bad the smell was, what I was thinking. I leapt out of bed, and, panicking and cursing all gods of things feline and scatalogical, pulled back all the sheets and pillows looking for what I imagined had to be the smelly, horrid, genius of all misplaced cat turds. I feared to find it on CJ's side of the bed, in an indelicate place, preening itself in the light and saying "howdy do!" I wasn't keen on finding close to my head, either, whether it talked or not. I just prayed the mess could be cleaned up without a hazmat suit.

I looked, I looked, I looked. Nothing. I looked several damn times, and ran around the bed, looking for it there. Still nothing. Nothing in the clothes pile. Nothing in the guest bathroom. Nothing nowhere from nobody.

And there's Leila, sitting on the bed purring and going GLURF.

About now, with the panic subsiding, I realize that it was, most likely, a false alarm. The evil smell was most likely produced through gas, in a perfect example of just how foul and distressing pet farts can be. I think we are truly fortunate that, in most cases, our animal friends find discrete moments to blow their wind so as not to offend their owners (or staff, in the case of cats) but accidents do happen.

That said, if I go to bed tonight and discover there's a cat poop shoggoth underneath it, sipping an umbrella drink and listening to Steely Dan, friends nearby may need to be summoned to deal with the beast. You have been warned. Bring gas masks.
