Yeah, you know, sometimes people on my flist annoy the living shit out of me, but that doesn't mean they suck. It means I'm not dealing with stress very well or I've lost my sense of humor or I'm failing at my life-long attempts to grow up. Unfortunately, we seem to have a cultural value that confrontational bitchiness is cool and edgy and honest. Well, it's not. And honesty isn't automatically valuable. In the case of all this lj nonsense lately, it's just mean-spirited and immature.

I like St Pete even better than Sarasota.

It's not that I don't want to write about Fishkill, you know. It's just that the story is dauntingly long and frightening, and I'm going to have to say lots of really mean, albeit funny, things about lots of Fishkillians. So we'll leave it for another day. Plus, I still haven't finished Descent. One must have priorities, you know.

    One time on the bus, JC had fallen asleep slumped against the window with his face pressed to the glass. Chris had been just about to jab a finger…
