More About My Childhood

One putrid Tuesday, two young children who lived next door, Bullion and Egg Cream Pulpit, 5 and 7 respectively, began throwing small, dense, greenish spheres at us as we thrashed out our new song, "Spools of Thread." What were these strange painful spheres, we wondered. They turned out to be mutant limes growing on the thorny stunted lime tree on the far side of the Pulpit's house. Ouch!

In response, the following morning, we tried to light their house on fire with damp matches, to no avail.

I want to tell you that I am too uplifted to feel depressed. That is my new way of living for now. I have reached a point of self-actualization combined with acute awareness of reality. It is somewhat sunny. The sun is streaming in the grubby, pee-stained windows of the men's room in a peculiar way.

You are weird. Did that really happen?

Why don't they clean the windows in the men's room where you work? That's unsanitary. Gross out.

I wish that I could sing you a song, mm. I think you need nurturing. Your childhood sounds stinky. What about primal scream therapy? I've tried it and it was effective. Now I don't lick people when I meet them.

I also doent like Easter. in my case, I was raised a Christian, recommitted myself to Christ. Got into the Bible. My life changed in many ways. An outward manifestation is I quit drinking. I was a more dedicated, more focused person. Not to say I wasn't a dedicated person beforehand, but it was a life-changing moment.

I also recognize that a walk is a walk, I mean, it's a never-ending journey. And I've got a lot of imperfections like anybody else. And the more I got into the Bible, the more that admonition "Don't try to take a speck out of your neighbor's eye when you've got a log in your own" becomes more and more true, particularly for those of us in public life. And so my style, my focus, and many of the issues that I talk about, you know, are reinforced by my religion.

You see, if you believe that we're all sinners, as opposed to you're a sinner and I'm not, then I think it helps you, at least for me.

Hey Vivien, I like your style, but I didn't realize you were a Christian. That's a bummer. I am more into magic and the devil's business.

I am sorry for a long statement I think I should have written a book instead of here but I think you may like my words typed here anyway. These words are mainly from my own expression. It is not from somewhere else. I think some of my writings may be difficult to understand and too long because the English is not my first language and the America Sign Language is my first language. I can tell you a little about myself. I have been alone for so long time which I don't have any friends because since I was from kid to adult I have been always a quiet guy and also love to be very independence person. It does not mean I don't know how to communicate. I can communicate very well and even can be very funny most of the times.

I am very happy to find someone who is in love with me. Believe me!I am looking for a man to use and abuse me in any way he sees fit. I want someone who will suck the life energy out of me so completely that I'll have to be put in a nursing home by sixty. I would prefer someone with a lot of issues who is completely unavailable emotionally, sexually selfish, a wretched conversationalist, and who can stare blankly at a television for hours making me feel as if I'm not even in the room. I want a relationship that will break me down in mind and body to the point that I lose all sense of myself, completely detach from my soul, and wither into a lifeless husk that doesn't even resemble the hopeful, giving, loving person I once was. I want my physical health to be sucked from my body leaving my organs swollen and limping, and my bladder and bowels releasing themselves of their own volition!
