Watching Love Grow Forever

  • Me, in a suit, photo as promised. People can vouch my head is attached above.
  • Thank you to BFF Laudru for literally putting his arms around me and tying my tie.
  • Thanks to all Beloveds, terrific evening, beautiful event.
  • View at two in morning after unloading both of our cars.

  • Tomorrow is an Egoslavian Holy Day and a High Egoslavian Holy Day!
  • Wednesday is a High Egoslavian Holy Day (and we fly to Maine for ten days of hiking).
  • Thursday is a High Egoslavian Holy Day.
  • One year ago today we landed in Bangor as the same plane as Susan Collins after she'd voted against killing Obamacare, the photo I took and tweeted went viral, most attention this shitty blog ever got and will ever get.
  • Some of the real humans who followed me on twaater as a result still do, most of the bots too.


Richard Wilbur

A striped blouse in a clearing by Bazille   
Is, you may say, a patroness of boughs   
Too queenly kind toward nature to be kin.   
But ceremony never did conceal,
Save to the silly eye, which all allows,
How much we are the woods we wander in.
Let her be some Sabrina fresh from stream,
Lucent as shallows slowed by wading sun,
Bedded on fern, the flowers’ cynosure:
Then nymph and wood must nod and strive to dream   
That she is airy earth, the trees, undone,
Must ape her languor natural and pure.
Ho-hum. I am for wit and wakefulness,   
And love this feigning lady by Bazille.   
What's lightly hid is deepest understood,   
And when with social smile and formal dress   
She teaches leaves to curtsey and quadrille,   
I think there are most tigers in the wood.


  1. The suit is truly him. Ilse noted that, like his BFF, His Caninity landed some bit of dinner on his tie two minutes into the meal. Old Caninity Senior, at age 86, kept his tie clean.

    1. Heh, I saw, drip from salad dressing. I assume ties can be dry-cleaned, cause fuck if I'm buying another one (or untying this one - hung in bag still knotted).

  2. Don't worry,I'll hug you at funerals too.

  3. 1)good looking suit

    2)best wishes to the newlyweds

    3)i'm reminded of 'smile' by will powers
