    She's Leaving Home, Bye Bye

    Dear blog friends, blog lovers, blog family,

    Posting will be light and easy until July 7, when I return from a much-deserved, (if I do say so myself,) trip to visit family. Nothing but regular old, plug-it-into-the-phone-line dial-up out there, and I am just too spoiled by DSL at work and school and cable at home to have enough patience to crank out my average 20 posts per week.

    I expect to be thinking substantially less about blowjobs, making fun of monogamous heterosexuals, and maybe even Michael Pollan for awhile; more time for the consideration of life's meaning and the existence of a higher power, or for watching DVDs of Arrested Development and playing cards.

    I'll be here from time to time and checking your blogs from time to time, but lower your standards for me for two weeks. I will be dredging up some old posts from the archives from before anyone read this blog, out of equal senses of duty and vanity.

    In the meantime, I hope all of you get a chance to look out at the sky away from your monitor (assuming you want that chance). If you don't know what to do without me, a quick search for "Weekend Homework" in the My Amusement Park archives may help.

    Love, EL

    Have fun! And please tell me: didn't you post a link to a video on YouTube that was a series of images edited together or men in homoerotic situations -- from hetero movies as well as gay films -- that was set to some queer song? WHERE is it?? I can't find it.
