Of all the things, this is one of the least notable things, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around "This is a tough hurricane, one of the wettest we've seen from the standpoint of water."

Don't worry, though: Sir Paul McCartney's new album has a song about climate change on it, so at least ... uh, at least we'll be able to listen to shitty music as the environment turns ever more deadly. From the standpoint of water.

I migrated over there a long time ago because I got paranoid about LJ going dark, but now that it seems to be going dark in a political sense, you can find my terrible blog on DW, with the same user name.

I apparently can't write anything under 8,000 words these days. Well, a productive use of a snowed-in Saturday, at any rate.

This, as always, is just a first draft.

I went to Salem with a bunch of good friends on Saturday, and when I got home the writing bug did bite me. Twelve hours and 17,000 words later, I have this thing that does not have a name or a purpose, but I never did write anything this long before. I don't know what it is or where it came from, but it was fun to do; for the first time ever, I sat down to write three or four times over the last two days excited about learning where this would go. If you read this thing, may God bless you and keep your name forever upon the land. There are no rewards for completion, other than virtue itself. Here 'tis:

More than anything, I don’t want to Google “Dick Blood,” but the thin, intense man sitting across from me says I need to do just that or my story will be incomplete.

No, not incomplete; my story will be so fraudulent that “inaccurate” would be high praise if I fail to learn all I can about Dick Blood, says the man sitting across from me, whose name is Zane Nino.

“I’m not even sure I can do that on a work computer,” I tell him.

We’re having coffee in a diner somewhere near Los Angeles, and Zane Nino is losing patience with me.

The problem that seems to afflict every work-bound LJ user sooner or later has hit the City of Village Charm: my journal has suddenly become popular viewing at work.
Consequently, I'm going to go off the grid for a little while. I've locked all my previous posts, and when I do start posting again, sometime in the future, it will be friends only. I know there are a number of people out there who read my journal but who don't have livejournals of their own, and that kind of sucks, but that's the way it has to be, at least for the forseeable future.

The journal still rages on, but is friends only. If you would like to be added, or if you would like to read the thing I wrote about Lance Hahn, leave a comment.
