I was sure that after I didn't visit for... five years... that it would have been deleted.

 

Good on Livejournal.

But with facebook, etc, does anyone LJ anymore?

[music |The Majority Report (podcast)]

Hey all.. I'm going to be starting my new little radio gig next week. I'm going to be review sex-related sites for a satellite radio show.

So help me get started with a bang! Recommend some freaky, beautiful, ugly, informative, unusual, trippy, excellent awful but somehow noteworthy website that is somehow, some way, sex-themed for me to review. I need to start out with 6-7, and I'm looking for variety. Gay, straight, in between, paid, free, everything. Not just "porn" sites per se, just anything that has a sexual slant: where 7 foot trannys go to buy clothes, en education site, amputee antics, what the freak ever, just make sure that whatever the topic is, the role of X, Y, and genitals are somehow involved.

I'm also going to have a website to go with it, but that's not up yet...

is there anyway to get more minutes in one's hours? I could use that....

A friend of mine is battling cancer and recently lost her ability to eat most foods. She's been surviving on Ensure and baby food.

I made her my special super-nutritious vege soup, which is tons of veges boiled down in chicken broth, discarded, then more tons of veges boiled down in that concentrated broth with tofu, then pureed.

SHE LIKED IT AND IS EATING IT!!!

YAY!!!!!!

My cooking-food thing has finally paid off in a really important way! YAY!!!!!!!!

So tomorrow's the big day... [Feb. 7th, 2005|03:37 pm]

[music |All the Stars-Eastmountainsouth]

when i found out if I have adult ADD. Or at least, I find out if a psychiatrist trained to diagnose it thinks I do. We'll know for sure if he says yes and I take the drugs and the drugs WORK.

And ohmygod if they do...what a revelation that will be to my life. I will be alternately thrilled and angry, I think...thrilled that the answer has come and there is a way to treat it, and angry about all the years wasted looking for "tools to help me focus".

How strange to be hoping for a diagnosis of...what? Disorder, that's right. Attention Deficit Disorder. At least it would EXPLAIN the difficulty of being me!

I watched a commercial for the new drug to treat it (that has liver side effects, no thanks, I'll take the stimulants) and almost wanted to cry, because they describe the experience of being me so accurately. "Do you feel like the channels in your brain keep changing and someone else has the remote?" Why yes, that is EXACTLY the way it feels, thankyouverymuch.

By the way: NEW BECK: ROCKETH

He put his photos up for all to see and comment upon. Please go take a look, you'll be glad you did. And comment freely, he needs to hear from people who don't know him and have no investment in him. (Special enticement: his gallery includes pictures of beautiful semi-naked people!))

Today's Burning Question: [Jan. 30th, 2005|09:51 am]

[mood |curiouscurious]

Are there really men who care passionately about the volume, and even more bizarrely, the velocity of their ejaculate? And if so...WHY?

I need to know.

Tip #1 for staying present: Stop the data stream! [Jan. 10th, 2005|02:44 pm]
Le Stoid
[mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[music |So Are You to Me-Eastmountainsouth]

For those of you who may be struggling to be more present in your lives, perhaps this will have resonance for you: a key ingredient to my being present in my life is to periodically stop the data stream, at various moments throughout the day. For just a short while. Try it. At least once today, stop everything from coming in. No:

telephone
radio
television
computer
reading
music
conversation

Nothing. No aggressive data. Of course, there is always the passive data...the air, the smells, the sights, the sounds around you. Even sitting quietly in the middle of an empty room, there's data. But all the modern life data, all the people data...just stop all of it for a few minutes. Eat your lunch, for instance, alone, in a quiet space. Just sit there and eat and be in that moment.

"Sometimes I sits and thinks...and sometimes I just sits."

BodyWorlds [Jan. 9th, 2005|03:07 pm]

[music |Woodstock-Richie Havens]

You haven't seen it, in all likelihood, I think LA was the first North American stop.

But you must, really.

What AM I on about? This:

Bodyworlds!

The Anatomican Exhibition of Real Human Bodies. It ROCKS. Absolutely fascinating, moving, beautiful, and yeah, a little disturbing. But really wonderful overall.

The most amazing thing: the man, woman and child that are made up of absolutely nothing except their blood vesseles, INCLUDING capillaries. They replaced the blood with some kind of red polymer, and once it was set, they just boiled off anything that wasn't the polymer. Truly mind-boggling.

The saddest, yet still amazing thing: the woman in the 8th month of pregnancy.

The most politically inspiring: the jar with the 5 weeks fetus in it. Also known as a sesame seed, in both size and shape.

If it comes to your neck of the woods, GO.

It's the ultimate in mummys.

I'm back [Nov. 4th, 2004|11:48 am]
Le Stoid
[mood |awakeawake]

Because I'm pissed.

Because I'm terrified.

Because I'm griefstricken.

Because I'm tired of crying my guts out.

Because I'm not constitutionally capable of burying my head in the sand and telescoping my world view down to a pinpoint that includes nothing but those things with which I interact directly and personally.

Because I am alive.

Because I'm a hardlefty liberal womens lib agnostic pro choice tree-hugging greenie hippie baby boomer that LOVES MY COUNTRY SO MUCH IT HURTS.

And I can't turn my back.
