I improved on its memes.

Ask away!

Take a picture showing your room, the room you are in, just as it is at this very moment. Don't clean, don't straighten, don't do anything, simply document what your surroundings are right now.

I did turn on the light box for the photo, because I don't have a flash.

I'm from the generation of gay men immediately after the worst of the AIDS crisis. I came out in the late 1980s, and was well aware of the dangers of HIV and the necessity of safer sex by the time I became sexually active. I know in my gut that, had I been born 5 years earlier, I wouldn't have survived unscathed.

I turned 40 this year, and have so far remained HIV-negative.

The hardest part about it for me is that there's an entire generation of gay men before me who simply weren't there for me as I came into my own. Selfish, I know, but I was raised without a father, and I NEEDED all of those surrogate daddies in my life. I missed out on so much without them there to take this scared little boy under their wing. It makes me sad to think about what could have been...

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In July I bought porn for [ profile] detailbear (10 points). In September I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the I-5 near LA (-76 points). In May on a flight to Bangladesh, I stole the emergency flight information card and sold it on eBay (-40 points). Last Tuesday I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last week I gave [ profile] tianas_knife a Dutch Oven (-10 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-124 points).
For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!

(For [ profile] kennapea)

I scanned my face and everything I was carrying on my person for the Face Your Pockets project ( At the time, I was carrying a pack of cigarettes, a lighter, my high school class ring (FKHS 1986), a Cingular cell phone that doesn't work, my keys, a handkerchief, my wallet on a chain, and a little LEGO figurine of Hagrid attached to the chain.

A decade ago, while on Semester at Sea, I wrote a piece (I guess you could call it a poem) about Globalization, titled "The United States of Borg."

Today, I received an email from the copyright coordinator at the Ministry of Education in Alberta, asking to reprint it in some courseware they are producing. I gladly told them yes, under a Creative Commons license, if they would send me a copy of the courseware when completed.

It seems I have made a mark on the world. The United States of Borg has turned out to be the most successful meme I have ever created, having been reprinted or quoted several times: here, here, here, and here.

You know, I always wanted to be a footnote!
