Everybody must get stoned

I'll get back to tieblogging soon -- the wounds are too raw right now. (Just kidding! I just don't have time. I think I might wear a sweater today.) If you'd like to read about what I've been up to this weekend, you can catch up with Rose's medical saga here.

While briefly stopping in a Barnes & Noble between bedside vigils -- and, honestly, "vigils" seems like too dramatic a word for "chatting and solving nurikabe", but I got nothin' else -- I saw a game that struck me as somewhat risible: Goth: The Game of Horror Trivia.

The cata-GORIES (sic) (and Lorinne points out that just because one is making a crappy pun, that does not excuse one from having to spell "categories" correctly, so, double sic) include "Movie Mayhem, Music Macabre, Bloody Tales & Poetry, Alchemy, and Stiffs". This game strikes me as slightly sad, somehow -- I picture a bunch of grown-up goths being all, "I know that! The Cure's 'Killing an Arab' is based on The Stranger, by Camus! Wow, I remember I traded my copy of the first Flock of Seagulls album for that single. (Long pause.) Sigh. (Long pause.) Well, can we finish this game later? I need to go to bed -- early day at the accounting firm tomorrow!"

I follow your blog from the LJ syndication, and so I can skip the ties on days that my eyes aren't up for that much stimulation. (And I can defer Six Things until my kids aren't hanging around the computer :-)

Don't let the idiots get you down.

I love your wardrobe pics. They are visually refreshing!

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds- and/or Fuck the hatas!

Best wishes to Rose-

Please tell Rose people are keeping her in their thoughts, and remind her what a blessing it is to actually KNOW what is the matter and that help is coming, even when the pain is still there.

I love the ties. I sometimes wish I'd thought of your shirt-tie harmony concept myself. Except I don't like wearing ties. Still, it's quite challenging for a gent to establish a "look" that's original, fairly low-maintenance, and not too outlandish to wear everywhere. I salute you.

Another shirt/tie blogging fan chirping up here. I feel like it helps expand my color/pattern horizons. :)

Best wishes to Rose for feeling LOTS better soon!

It baffles me that people treat bloggers as though they are forcing them to read (or even check!) their sites. "How dare you post that, what a waste of my time"? Excuse me? If you don't have time to check a blog because you run the risk of seeing something that doesn't interest you, don't "quit" and leave bitchy comments. Get an RSS reader.

I think that people who feel the need to comment on people's blogs are all pathetic losers.

.....Wait a minute.....

I actually have the Goth game, which my in-laws gave me for Christmas a few years ago because I like horror movies and H.P. Lovecraft. It's so-so bordering on lame.
