Wicked Games


You're nowhere near cougar-age territory, so rock that 90s style with pride. How did your scarf turn out? I know it's getting to be even gloomier and clammier than usual in your neck of the woods, and it will fill me with pride to see you wrapped in a scarf that I was peripherally involved in the creation of.

Don't feel bad for not giving me the History of Belle's Love Life compendium. It is funny making up silly nicknames for previous paramours, but you appear to have gone through the mental process of gleaning self-knowledge from romantic experience without the creation of such a document. I used to play a game with myself: Which three romantic decisions would I take back? Since small things can make a big difference, the possibilities are almost endless. It took several years before I was comfortable enough with myself and the person I've become as a result of those choices to refuse to play.

More later. I am going to bed early so I can be at the polls when they open. In the meantime, I thought I would provide links to a couple of interesting posts by Hugo Schwyzer about porn. (I'm most interested in the 18 U.S.C. 2257 discussion; I find the breadth of that statute fairly alarming and am happy to see that it has come under some fire from the federal courts.)
