Crystal and Cleaning

Okay--This story makes me laugh. Scroll down to "Just say no...of the dead. Not for the faint of heart, or who don't have a sense of humor about drugs, idiocy, and gay men, but this is great. From Sean's live journal blog, which manages to be well-written, entertaining, and also personal--which is a feat, to write entertaining stories about one's own life. Anyhow, he seems like a great guy, and one of the more interesting people I've met in a while, so here's a plug for his blog. It's always nice to be able to plug friends. And by plug, I mean....y'know...say nice things about them. :)

This rivals the Julie Halston reading of the Ann Landers "Please warn your readers about the dangers of mixing drugs and tanning." Oh, how I wish I had a copy of that. If you haven't seen it, it's Julie Halston reading an Ann Landers' column about someone "scared straight" by the experience of doing drugs (cocaine, I think) for 48 hours, and then having an anxiety attack in a tanning booth and barely "escaping with his life." He mentions that he would write more, but it's taken him 4 hours to write as much as he has, and then asks Ann to warn her readers about the daner of mixing drugs and tanning. Priceless. Sad, but priceless. Half a brain is a terrible thing to waste.
