Time to Time to Say Goodbye Again
The call came in early this morning. I've been moaning about Sebastien being so faraway and in such a dangerous place. Well now it's my turn. I was hoping to spend Christmas at home. With my friends and my dog.
But what can you do? The great armies of this world have their mighty air forces, and their killing machines. But their victims and the poor, sick, and hungry people of the world they just got us.
But hey...why would I want to stay in this freezing frigid country, and make snow angels? When I can feel like a real one for a while. Or paint them in the sky....
As for this blog it's taking off too. And I don't know if it will be back. But if it does it will be different.
You see I only started blogging because I was so angry about the Harper government's decision to revisit the gay marriage debate. But I'm not so angry anymore. So I'm going to have to learn to blog instead of just rant. Or maybe just quit while I'm ahead.
I've said just about everything I wanted to say. There have been too many stupid posts...too many cheap and crude photoshops, too many really bad videos. And of course they're all way too long. Like the one I did last night.
When Farm Boy glanced at it today he said "Simon if you want people to spend an hour reading or watching your crazy blog....you're going to have to pay them...."
Yikes! He may be a sweet gay rube. But in this case he's right....what the fuck am I doing?
So I'm going to have to reinvent myself. But even if I can't and decide to do something else. I'll always keep fighting against bigotry, and for gay rights, and for the rights of all oppressed people. Just like I'll never give up the battle to stop gay kids from being bullied.
But there are so many other gay bloggers out there who can do a much better job of defending our cause. Instead of hurting it like I do sometimes. By being too aggressive and angry. And.....er....long....
Bloggers like this one and this one and this one and this one and this one. and this one.And so many other good straight bloggers too. Including my Australian friend Beep Read them and you can't go wrong.
The good news is .....I might get to ask Sebastien what HE thinks I should do......
Woohoo!!!That's my little surprise!!! It looks as if on my way back I might be able to take a teeny detour and see him. At least for a few hours. I can't even describe what kind of Christmas present that would be. If you really want to know... ask the military families in this country who have loved ones in Afghanistan. And while your at it don't forget to support them as much as you can.
As for me I think I'll just use one more bad Japanese video to give you an idea of what it's going to be like.
Of course I'll be hoping for more than that...like two hours in an air conditioned motel....
But you know if it's only a hug it will be good enough. One of those hugs that goes on for ten minutes. And nobody says a word, because you don't have to.
But really folks aren't you going to miss me? Who else could bring you those kind of classic videos? Which reminds me...did I ever show you the incredibly popular European video? Where two young French rugby players act like gay boys even tho they aren't....
Wow! now that's gay...even though they're not!!. Can you believe it ? Straight boys who aren't afraid to act like gay boys. And everybody loves them....what's this world coming to?
Oh my god. Another reason to quit while I'm ahead!!! Before I become a fucking optimist....still it would be nice...it is the season...
But that's it ..... Bye for now folks....it's been a blast.
And if I don't get back in time....
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone!!!!!
