Preparing for War

My coming-out letter is tentatively scheduled to be written and snail-mailed on Saturday, to arrive at my parents' house on Monday or Tuesday. There are reasons for the timing - the tricky questions have already arrived in my email box so I can't put off answering them too long, but the rest of my family is having an extended family gathering on Sunday so I'm aiming to let them say comfortably rude things about my absence while together there, but to also let them focus primarily on the other family issues there before becoming aware of mine.

I've heard two songs on the radio today which I identified with. Just for the record, I'm definitely not very fond of Whitney Houston's voice, and for that matter her lyrics aren't entirely brilliant works of literature either (nor Madonna's lyrics either - though of the two, I certainly prefer Madonna); but I'm in a sappy mood today and I just identified with the sentiment.

Whitney Houston: "The Greatest Love of All"
Madonna: "Live to Tell"

Also, to all of you people who are attempting to carry on discussions, debates, or any other form of communication with me at the moment: I'm extremely BUSY at the moment and I really can't spare the time or energy to debate you right now. I'll answer you later. Brenna is first in line, Wynn is second, and anybody else wishing to debate me comes later. People wishing simply to agree with and/or express affection for me, however, are always welcome, anytime.

    I have no idea who sings this. It's not very good either.

And the Paranoia Sets In . . .

As soon as I got home from work, my phone rang. That's the time my mother usually calls, when she calls at all, because she says if she calls then it's easier to get through before I dial into the internet and tie up the phone line. So I thought it was her and I was terrified so I just turned the ringer off and let the answering machine pick it up. But it was only a machine conducting a pre-recorded survey about "what should be shown on TV."
