NY comedian on shit-talking mothers:
it's been on my mind recently as a good friend of mine struggles with her relationship either falling apart, or turning a corner. she keeps in touch with me - sporadically - just defeated by the hurt, the implications for the future if they can't stay together, the whole thing is kicking her ass. i found myself telling her that you don't have to forgive everything your partner does to stay together. that staying together is something independent of whether you can make peace with something that happened. and it occurs to me that this is new information even for me.
looking around for a new place to live.
all in all, as much as my landlords suck, the fact that they're not outright breaking the law really places them in the upper echelons of landlords. the fact that they lie and manipulate and are excitable... small trade off for not having to deal with the hassles of owning property.
still not ready to buy, don't know if i ever will be. it is an INCREDIBLE pain in the ass.
so part of my plan is to rent until the kid goes to college, which is in five short years.
i watched this thing play out on twitter, which reinforced my love of twitter even though i rarely make time for it. not because i love a fight, which part of me does, but because i loved watching a professional "writer" struggle so publicly with words, attempting and failing humiliatingly to delineate herself from doug stanhope - who actually is brilliant with words - in the exact opposite juxtaposition that ended up happening. a drunk can tweet in 140 characters more substance than she can fit into a 8-paragraph composition. i love that.
as i noted, the G8 and NATO summits were both to be taking place in Chicago in May. G8 was moved to the safety of camp david, but NATO will still take place there.
there are, i'm sure, tons of actions being planned.
