Since I saw stray posts about OS being a goner, I've felt ...lousy...er.
Then, of course, the post about how we are all hysteric sheep who stink.
Then, the stray comments or posts expressing disgust at all that is meta and even accusing the poster of the meta of unsavory manipulation.… Read full post »
Been missing the OS community but just have had to be offline 24/7.
My life has become something for bad movies and ... that's about it for now.... ahem!
This morning I was able to log on for the first time in a straight week.
Saw that some Spam fighting insurgence… Read full post »

I sniff a new editor. Therefore, I sniff my first and only chance at an Editors Pick before my Birthday. Out of the corner of my gimlet eye, I see this on the Open Salon cover page.
Awesome stories for new OS editor
But, with different fancy formatting that I… Read full post »
Recent events in my own life have made me feel as if I’ve long left the sphere, I’m forced to call, “ Normalcy.”
The events of the last four years, in my own existence, have been so far out, so outrageous, so so so… so… Profoundly out of step with what… Read full post »
My longtime OS buddy, Matt Paust, had gone and written a book about guns, was my impression. After flipping through the book before settling in with it, I saw too that there were essays about sports. Football, to be more exact. More closer inspection made me see that there was so much… Read full post »
In the midst of a legal odyssey both odious and ominous, I found myself getting a chance to shake my head admiringly, and also to attain the sweet relief of laughter. This desperately needed respite came as a gift from Open Salon's very own, Cranky Cuss. I have spoken to Cranky… Read full post »
My mother strikes me as a miracle. Otherwordly, I guess. A survivor in the truest sense. Today is her birthday, and I feel close enough to enough people on OS to want to celebrate her here.
She has never been cruel to me or anyone. She has never not been there for… Read full post »
Do not go gentle into that good night by Dylan Thomas
Do not go gentle into that good
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Because their words had forked no lightning they

I am writing post after post about Trayvon Martin. My anger and outrage are getting the best of me . I can't post them as I must appear temperate, nowadays.
Please read this post . It is, I believe, a very important one.
Another bad pic. Damn webcam but for a cause:
A short while back I wrote this post:
Unlike most posts, I felt it needed another part. So many more sayings, stuck in my craw.

Yesterday, while a more elaborate seeming Open Salon meetup was being planned on the East Coast, I was planning for a less elaborate, but no less anticipated, meeting on the West Coast. I’m assuming that when it only involves two people it should get called a Meet-ing or maybe a mini/… Read full post »
Recently I was informed of another OSer's hobby, via her blog. The hobby struck me as how you say ... unrealistic. The hobby? Cracking murder cases alongside certain detectives.

Realized too late too many typos and not clear content. But, I want to keep the comments type situation-- for any OSer who might wonder.
Recent events have dampened any luster to leave the house . But, through osmosis, I am privy to trends of thought, clothing, social protocols, and other things. Sometimes osmosis leaves me alone . I realize years later that I’ve stayed oblivious to things that should have been… Read full post »
I just found out, via a PM by a lovely human, that a messed up draft of this is showing up as an “update”. I didn’t post it, and so now I’m fighting stray shame feelings due some unsolvable technical glitch.
