Dan Riehl, quite bravely announced his heterosexuality to the world. Perhaps he was motivated by Anderson Cooper. I would just like the world to know that I, too, am every bit the heterosexual monogamist one would expect by default. What can I say? I’m to lazy to tomcat about. Also, form follows function. There is a certain obvious, cause/effect nature to it all. It tickles the engineer in me that things work about as you would expect. Call it common sense.
I suppose I can understand perversion; the need to turn something on its head. I once coded some Visual Basic modules inside of an MS Access application to think that they were the Server, Request, and Response objects for Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). That’s pre .Net code, for you whipper snappers. Then there was this really tortured, nested VBA.Replace() call through which all of the code modules passed while being pushed out to .vbs files, so that the VBA could execute as VBScript on the web server. Think of it as a sex change.
But that’s source code. Silly putty. Can I translate wild software hijinks into the 120 Days of Sodom? Nah. I’m too boring.
Relationships are about relaxation. Lowering stress. My marriage is a refuge, a retreat from a broken, wacky world. The little boy who turns 1 year old this month is a refreshment and renewal.
That’s about it. Just wanted to come out and say, to those who insist on trying it every way under the sun: judge the tree by the fruit. And if your approach lacks even the potential for fruit, it is possible that you’re going about it incorrectly. At little self-judgement is a key ingredient to improvement.
Update: no, I’m not, Daily Pundit.
