Okay, a couple of months ago something clicked in my head.
I’ve been trying to write it coherently since then and without much luck. The problem was that I only had figured out half of what I was trying to say.
That happens often. I can plainly see half of something, but there needs to be some… catalyst… to get it completely figured out for me. More often than not, there is one particular type of catalyst that can kick that in to high gear.
I sent Pixie a video the other day – figuring it would humor her or irritate her… preferably both. Okay, I really expected her to beat the hell out of me with a rusty pipe while admiring her new heels and happily singing something from her beloved Taylor Swift.
If you know anything about the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope, that fits rather well.

The other day I reblogged about the Swedish man who died trying to have sex with a hornet nest.
Events like that – and it being in the news – help destroy the little faith I have in humanity these days. Cynicism increases; belief that we’ll survive another century wanes a little less.
But, all is not lost.

From time to time I like to post for specific bloggers that are important to me. Some are close friends, some bring things to my world that I appreciate, some inspire me, some feel like they walk a similar path to mine and are kindred souls.
This is for one of that last - Lola, of Secret Thots for a Very Private Gentleman.
Now, I don’t know her beyond her posts and comments here and on her blog, but almost every post she writes makes me pause, turn introspective, and really think. I appreciate that on so many levels.

Horny for hornets horror. From Sweden News so a bit of a lumpy google translation.
Around noon on Monday, SOS an alarm that "Hasse" a man the age of 35, lay unconscious on his farm outside Ystad. An hour later he would be dead.
"Hasse" which was known in Ystad tavern circles, had a total of 146 wasp sting on the body including 54 on the genitals, including the scrotum.
Just... speechless. There are definitely some fucked up people out there.
Quote of the week:
"Attempting to have intercourse with a hornet’s nest is a very bad idea."Guess what is not on my bucket list?

The kids and I have a bit of a tradition when they get their report cards.
This started a couple of years ago, when Evil Genius started getting graded on his studies. After getting home from the soul-sucking government job, I looked at the report cards sitting on the kitchen table and shouted upstairs, in a very grim tone:
Get your asses down here! I want to talk to you about your grades right now!

I figured out a new nickname for me that I want someone to use…
…just not sure who, yet.

There’s something about the boy being nine years old now that makes his questions even more difficult to answer.
Evil Genius: Can you help me understand something?
me: Doubt it, but I’ll give it a shot. What’s troubling you, kid?
Evil Genius: I took a dollar off your desk last week. But I gave it to the food drive at school. Was that a good action or bad?
me: Well, both. That wasn’t your dollar to donate; taking it was wrong.
Evil Genius: But I gave it to a good cause; I didn’t spend it on myself. So was it more good or bad?
me: I see your trap, you little shit. I’m only gonna say “both” – make your own moral judgements. Why didn’t you just ask me for a dollar?
Evil Genius: I kinda did, you just couldn’t hear me because you were on the phone. And I said it really, really quietly.
me: You set this up on purpose to try and make my head explode, didn’t you?
Evil Genius: Maybe.
