Gotta kick the darkness til it bleeds daylight

I don't approve of his lifestyle, but I love his music.

That is a sentence a grown man actually said yesterday when discussing George Michael's death.

In 2016.

Because he said it to my boss and was in uniform, I bit my tongue and went on with what I was doing.

Fridays are our casual dress day. I had been wearing my Library Tech because AWESOME isn't a friggin' job title tee shirt most Fridays, but that is going to change in 2017.

Being in the Derp South is a challenge, boy.

There's a scene in The Laramie Project where Christina Ricci's character says this little lesbian is ready to walk the line with him. She says that as she is preparing angel wings to wear designed to block the Westboro Baptist Church protesting the funeral of Matthew Shepherd.

She had something resembling gumption.

Some of you will get that.

Anyway, the Ricci line popped into my head as I was telling you about the guy yesterday.

He isn't a bad guy. Just a Jesus guy. Which, frankly, I fucking cannot stand. Believe what you want. When your faith is used as an excuse to treat others as less than I have a real problem.

I guess we'll be spending the next four years re-fighting the fights I thought we'd won.

Imagine how far along we would be if we didn't have to do that.

Titty sprinkles!
