3 plugs and a post

Sometimes you meet people and you just think to yourself, "What the fuck?" Other times you meet people and you think "Wow. We need more people like [him/her] in the world." Mark is one of the latter. He tells it how he sees it. Go read it.

Why is it that if I said that I wanted to meet She-Hulk in real life, people would look at me funny? She's beautiful, funny, and insightful. I'm just saying what everyone must think when they stumble across her site; everyone wants to meet her. Go read her blog.

My apologies, Aydreeyin, both for the turtles and because I thought that you had stopped working on Graceless. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, GO READ IT. It's a story in progress that you don't want to miss. It's the top link on my side bar for good reason.

*Note: I am pretty sure that all three of you already read or know about those blogs, but in the unlikely event that someone stumbles across this site who hasn't been there, I think they deserve some recognition.

So, you may be wondering to yourself, what is it like to leave a warzone where you're under mortar fire every day, and come home to a beautiful woman who loves you where everything is safe and secure and ideal?

I don't know. That's not what wound up happening.

Instead I came home to someone that didn't want a relationship with me, but failed to tell me that until a few months AFTER I gave up my life and career to be with her.

She changed somewhere between the time she arrived at grad school and the time I got back from Iraq. Suddenly, it wasn't okay that I don't have a degree yet. It wasn't okay that I wasn't perfect, really. She wanted a trophy to flaunt to her rich, grad school friends.

I just wanted to be with her. So she ripped my heart out and stomped on it and chewed it up and so forth and so on until I realized that I had found another constant in life. India is pain.

I'll take the mortars.

Ok folks, the next few posts may bring you down. This doesn't mean that I've lost any sort of joie de vivre or that I have any idea if I spelled that right. It's just on vacation.
