Arrested development

“My theory is that in the incidence of young fame, a person ceases to mature at the age they earn their first million dollars.”

I think this theory is awesome and I am going to go around quoting Agent Bedhead on it starting here. I have sometimes thought along similar lines; ok, every time I buy a lottery ticket. For me, part of the lottery ticket fantasy includes an anxiety that with my hypothetical riches I will not have to work so hard for everything and will basically fossilize into my current self but with a large house and bitchin’ car. While this would be ok in itself, the line of thought then takes me to wondering what I would be like now if I had won the same riches a year ago or five years ago or, God help me, fifteen years ago.

PS to God: Please let win millions of dollars in the lottery. They’d only be Canadian dollars so it’s not like I am asking for much.

Long weekend coming up. Yep.

Sooo... this seems like a good spot to announce I may or may not be posting on Monday. I will probably have an F-22 Raptor themed update over the weekend, however, following its appearance at the airshow tomorrow.

Sigh. Another gay boyfriend taking time away again. I know how that usually goes...
