Interrogation techniques

Talked with my eldest brother. Still an ass, still not as smart as he thinks he is. I silently called "bullshit" and let it slide.


Lots of training and intention meant I said exactly as much as I intended and not a word more.

When the long estranged father is found to be dead.

Il b√Ętard c'est mort. Two weeks ago, 9/11. Found the death notice googling around this morning. I don't mind that none of my remaining genetic family have contacted me, keeps it very clear. Mutual lack of interest.

But I do feel as if I've had a bash on the head. No pain, no anger, not happy or sad, just stunned and stupefied.

Sent an email to my cousin. Left a "condolences on your loss" with my email address on the guestbook, just to make sure everyone understands that I know, and know that if they don't contact me it's because it is clearly intentional. No excuses. Form has been observed.

When they try to drop you in the crap, but fall in themselves.

Isn't it wonderful when a liar sets themselves up, and walks right into their own shit? Even better when they do it while dumping on you in front of witnesses. Like, a supervisor, to whom this problem has been brought before.

Oh, how I laughed.

There is no glory in violence

No, I'm not going to play pirate. They were evil bastards, terrorists, thieves, murderers, rapists. They continue to this day, off Somalia, anyplace too unstable to contain them.

I don't get the joke.

Super Cute Squeal

I have heard the word Onsie way too many times today. And, is it critical that a baby have a 9 month photo portrait? Mom took snapshots of me with her brownie.

I only ever had official portraits through school, and I hated every one of them.

Ok, here are my arbitrary and ironclad rules.

Yes, I have opened comments here. But keep it down, wouldja? And no cross contamination with the other site.

This offer will be withdrawn at any whiff of anything I don't much like.

Just, why?

Why did you do that? What were you thinking? Who asked you?

Why didn't you just fucking ask me first?
