Good: Mrs. Nator has sprung another surprise birthday gift on me! Since we most likely won’t be able to afford or fit in a trip to Maine to visit our family friend, she has booked a place in exotic Long Beach, NY for us to stay after the big snorkel. We haven’t made it to the beach nearly enough this summer, and we cold both use a romantic getaway, so this is just wonderful. Ain’t she somethin’?
Good: My friends made it home from World Pride in Israel safe! And there were no attacks by orthodox Jews or Muslims!
Bad: A bunch of queer idiots started their own scuffle with the police, causing one of the organizers to get injured and arrested. Nice, people.
Good: Manatees! Cute, gentle, amazing manatees!
Bad: Manatees in New York! Evil harbingers of increasing global warming! Manatees, go home!
Okay, not really. You're just too darn cute.
