I’ve found a new bio one-liner 2011 May 9 18:41Posted by diamond in : Random , add a comment
A friend of mine, Tobias, when asked to describe me in one line came out up with this gem:
“He’s the reason babies cry when they’re born.”
This is hands-down the best thing that’s ever been said about me.

Yesterday myself and noirin got divorced. It took 8 months of separation before we finally saw a divorce lawyer, but only 3 weeks to actually get a court date and all the paperwork in order. As for the court hearing itself, it went as well as it could. By the end i was monosyllabic.
During the last hour as my wife, noirin made me look at pictures of shoes, and promise to never be in charge of a power plant. It was a glimpse into what we’d shared.
The marriage is over. This is not a cause for celebration, nor is it a cause for regret. It is simply necessary, it is what it is.
It is what it is.

The high point of my weekend 2011 March 16 22:53Posted by diamond in : Random , add a comment
There are 4 of us, in a bar. We played DnD earlier, and the drinking had started rather early in the afternoon. Gergely is trying to explain something, and decides to go with an analogy. He turns to me:
Gergely: Imagine this. You sign up to do some gay porn because you need the money. But then you find yourself south of the border, in mexico. You’ve been kidnapped to take part in a snuff movie. You’re tied up, fully naked, and a full biker gang with blades is about to start on you. What do you do? Go.
Me: … Eep?

Read this. It’s incredibly moving, depressing, and beautiful.
