Teddy Thompson (Richard and Linda’s son) with guest appearance by Rufus Wainwright:
I finally got my shredder working again, and all night I’ve been going through piles of old stuff — things like my old newspaper clips, tax stuff, old bills, just assorted crap. Far too many owner’s manuals. Old phone books with numbers from people I’ll never see again. Pages from an old diary I thought I got rid of years ago in a major purge — a very depressing trip back down memory lane. (Let’s just say I have a dependable lifelong knack for choosing exactly the wrong man.)
My shrink agrees I do it on purpose, but he puts it so nicely: “I don’t think there’s anything odd about someone with such high autonomy needs choosing relationships that can’t really go anywhere.”
“Oh,” I say. (I’m not used to people in authority who don’t berate or judge me.) He doesn’t see anything irrational about my need to be the center of my own universe, creativity-wise.
“Do you think you’re ready for something different, though?”
I shrug. “Sometimes. Maybe. I’m tired of drama. Probably. I don’t really trust people, so there’s that.”
But you know, there are a lot of big changes working in my life right now. You never know.
Things could get interesting.
I love the theme from the Craig Ferguson show:
I had this fling 20-something years ago who really was such a waste of time that all these years later, I can’t remember even one redeeming quality. I rarely think of him, for that reason. But today, when I was watching a documentary about Joe Strummer, I remembered that he turned me on to the Clash.
So I’ll give him that.
Not all of them hate sex. Some of them just hate sex with women, (I mention no names, but you’ll notice that Dems aren’t the ones with all the closet cases) and they want to punish them.
But the Democrats who go along with them? They’re even worse. If they pass this, they can kiss Democratic women goodbye.
