7042 – blood diamonds

VS asked me today at lunch why I was so dead set against the diamond industry. (Her uncle is a jeweller.)

I told her a bit about blood diamonds (not for the especially squeamish)

and she came back to me with “well, I’m not that deep… I do know that I want a diamond engagement ring.”

I was pretty stunned… Her attitude was “sure, people suffer, but I want my rock”.

7039 – Relax. You’re quite safe here.

Passing the warning Hartz brand products can be dangerous to your kitties.

by way of blackhellcat and faerie’s entry.


Building a case against a stalker for a friend… she’s filed a complaint at the police department , building a case for a restraining order. She got bounced from Pompano Pd, to Oakland, to Broward… they kept giving her nonsense about jurisdiction. Why so many stalker-nuts in the world? Ah well, building a paper trail is half the battle.


I remember the good old days when cutting edge computer graphics were vectors, and my favorite meal was alphabetty spaghetti letters in tomato sauce, right from the can.

1985ish.


Random Scotto factoid:

I tend to attract women with at least five of the following attributes, usually seven or more –

  • Artist (usually singer)
  • depressive, or manic/depressive
  • clever
  • extremely multi-faceted
  • OCD, especially the Obsessive side.
  • likes to smoke herb
  • nice breasts
  • inked or pierced
  • younger than me, by 5 years or more
  • Married too early, and divorced within 2 years.
  • Whimsical, but a capacity for dark humor, too.

Not too bad, all told. I’ve never had a relationship with more bad than good. I’ve consistantly been a good provider of emotional support, physical security, and love in general.


Danny has been having trouble hearing what I have to say lately. I’ve been wanting to tell him what’s been happening lately, but things seem to get sidetracked. He’s got a lot on his plate, of course. I hear he’s going to the AIDS play that one of his students wrote/is participating in this weekend.


Dreams… sensuous, violent, gentle, pastoral, ethereal, it’s all something. In the subconscious while your unconscious… free falling through your imagination. Funny what your mind touches when the tethers are removed. It’s sometimes betrayed by the limits of its own potential. I’m happy that I don’t hallucinate… or if I do, that I can work with them.
