I haven’t been writing much here in the last couple of months. It’s partially because my focus has been on grinding through work, and the spare time I’ve got has been either being with family o throwing myself at the truck for mental heath reasons.
I’m really good at organizing information, structuring it visually, and making it presentable to the audience—thirty years of experience have taught me how to do it in my sleep. Currently, I spend all of my available time at work writing email to move things from point A to point B and meeting with people to follow up on the emails moving things. It’s been rare that I get to make or design anything. I knew that taking this temporary role on, and I’ve accepted it, but it’s very hard for me to leave work feeling like I did anything useful or worthwhile. I think I’ve mentioned previously on these pages that I’m a task-oriented guy, so open-ended threads stretching out for weeks or months with no resolution short-circuits my brain.
So I push away from my desk at 6PM, spend some time with the girls over dinner, and then head out to the driveway to put wrenches on the truck in the hope that I can continue making forward progress. I’ll drag stuff out of the garage and work until it gets too dark to see anything, and then come inside to put Finn to bed. By the time I sit down to relax I don’t have a whole lot to say or any desire to write. Most of what I am writing is a recap of work to the truck (mostly to keep track of what I’m doing and the progress I’ve made) so I can keep my thoughts organized.
I’ll be stepping back to my regular role at the end of June, which will help my mental health immensely, and hopefully then I’ll have some brainspace to post here more frequently.
It’s so considerate of Tom Cruise to regularly remind us what a fucking tool he is.
I’d like to thank you for saying what I have been too stunned to say.
He’s such an asshole, and I think your prediction that he is going to go further and further Mel Gibson on the general public.
Keep your freaky, made up religious opinions to yourself, dillhole. That’s what I would like to say to his face.
ITA. Nothing but good can come from Gibson, Cruise et al regularly discrediting themselves.
Somewhere in all this is a good response to the Ann Coulter-ites who think celebrities should keep their mouths shut … unless the celebrity happens to be Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ted Nugent, Tom Selleck or Charlton Heston.
Oh – or that ethically bankrupt Dennis Miller.
Dennis Miller: What a disappointment.
Four out of five Scientologists recommend publicly gushing over a hot twenty-something starlet for their closeted homosexual members who chew gum.
I’m too skeered to Google scientology homophobia from work, but I wonder if maybe Scientology has some homophobic tenet that has thusly compelled Cruise to live in utter denial. Like maybe the same part of that effed-up system that says you can overcome any mental illness if you concentrate hard enough also says you can deny your sexual self if you’re an action star married to a six-foot Australian bombshell.
Oh, but Linda, “Nicole knows what she did”, and that put an end to her being able to help him deny his sexual self.
My guess is that she probably called him an idiot for believing all that Battleship Earth crap.

It’s on between Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise. Cruise recently said that Shields was “irresponsible” for using medication to help her cope with postpartum depression. Shields tells People, “Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them.”
Son of a *&*$%!!!
You know, I truly believe that I had post-partum and I wish I hadn’t been such an idiot and gotten treatment for it instead of suffering through it. I actually called once and my ob’s office told me the wait for an appt. was 3 weeks. I figured if I could get through 3 weeks that I could make it on my own, as I’m sobbing right after I hung up the phone. I should have pushed the issue and said, “Look here SOB, you will give me an appt. earlier than that or else!” It’s scary that as a woman I was not aware of that 3xs hormones during pg’y thing, that explains a lot!
Dillhole is right!
