I had a great dinner with Gill, Adam, and Matt tonight. It makes me happy as a clam to get to spend time with them. There was a point in my life where I thought we had gone our separate ways forever. I am glad to have access to them, even if I don't take advantage of it as often as I would like.

Speaking of people I hadn't gotten to hang out with in a while, I have one thing to say tonight.

Evan Buscemi, you're a f^@king moron. So help me, if there is an afterlife, they had better allow ass kickings. After everything we talked about, with all the support you had, was that really the best you could do? It wasn't supposed to be an option. I expected better from you, you jerk.

The recent death of a friend of my friends, coupled with finally watching the season finale of House (Season 4), has brought thoughts of death and missing folks to the forefront of my brain. In the episode I just watched, Wilson asks for "just a little longer" with the person who is dying (left unnamed, for those of you who have not caught up). She tells him plainly, "We're always gonna want just a little bit longer." True. To the core of my soul, that rings true.

In honor of those people with whom I will always wish I had just a little bit longer:

Waddhana "Nana" Prom (1969-1992)
Hugh Phillip Osborne (1977-1996)
"Coffee Jon" Langston (1978-2000)
Sharon "Mom" Bosch (d.2006)

And in honor of all of you folks out there in LJ-Land that make me happy to be part of your life (no matter how peripherally), I appreciate who you are. I hope we all have a lot longer to go.

(I know a lot of other people have already mentioned this, but dammit it's my LJ and I'm not going to censor myself)

George Carlin has always been a prolific comedian in our circle. At any point, on any day, we could pull a Carlin reference out of thin air, and at least half of the room would get it. The other half would be borrowing the album (or book) from the first half by the end of the day. We all knew this day would come (and acknowledged that it would be a sad one). I just didn't think it would come quite yet.

Thank you, George Carlin, for teaching us sarcasm, how to properly tell a fart joke, and most importantly, how to stop taking ourselves so damn seriously. I hope you go on to your afterlife knowing that you impacted so many people.

15 years ago today, I got a phone call that changed my life. I didn't have time to post a memoriam on the actual anniversary of his death (Thursday), so I'm posting one today, on the anniversary of the day I found out.

Rest in peace, Waddhana C. Prom. We still miss you.



Yeah, I know it's not the best picture, but it's the only one I ever scanned. Anyone have any better ones?
