I made Adam’s dad a mix cd for father’s day. I think he liked it. He seems to really like Ani DiFranco. This amuses me.

Haven’t been online to read anything since Saturday or so. Much catching up is being done right now. Unfortunately, I can’t write a real entry here because I must go out and cut rubber mats to fit the kennels.

    HEY! Men can like Ani, too!


    And that doesn’t make them gay…

      Oh, that’s not it at all… I know lots of men who like Ani who aren’t gay. It’s just that if Adam’s dad knew her political leanings he’d probably decide to not like her on principle… he’s a tad right-wing sometimes. 😉

        I know, I know… I’m just still riffing on a PARTICULARLY stupid thing that a sorta friend said to me once… something to the effect that being an Ani DiFranco fan and an Indigo Girls fan and a Jonatha Brooke fan made me somehow less than masculine and/or heterosexual.

        And I know the feeling. Unfortunately, MY dad can be that way sometimes, god love ’em…

    Oh, and on another topic, I just thought I should tell you that both my parents taught me about goodwill; and I have done well by their names.

    It’s just this kindness I lavish on strangers that’s more than I can explain. Still, there’s many who turned out their porch-lights, just so I would think they were not home. And hid in the dark of the windows, until I passed and left them alone.
