Michael Thorton Free

Just a struggling and depressed writer of 28 and a major fan of Kafka, Kojima, and Kubrick, with a portion of my heart remaining forever lost to Japan...and eleven years and counting to live before I die of complications due to Asperger's syndrome.

    Too bad my family insists on cremations, or else I’d do this.

    I hope this one explains to them why I find burials romantic.

    Okay, either the Hubbs is oblivious to the obvious (not unlikely given his gridiron goals – though I wonder how he maintains an accounting job after so many knocks) or he’s remarkably sensitive, intentionally or not.

    Place your bets, folks. Five will get you two he’s dumb, four will get you three he cares.

    Winners get slotted to the pre-order list for my upcoming graphic novels.

    I do this with fish and it works better. (I achieved great success with a seven-pound pomfret only last night)

    I take it the show isn’t going to be renewed?

    I expected a lot more outrage.

    I somehow doubt the efficacy of self-made glycerin soap.

    Lucky my seventh-grade science textbook had a recipe on how to make soap the traditional way, from sodium hydroxide and vegetable oil. (My father the chemist states that coconut oil is the best option, and he invented vancomycin, so there’s credence to his statements. Been trying to get similar results with bacon grease and olive oil as the base fat, like the Italians and Corsicans did historically, but I think mi viejo is right.)

    This is the sort of thing every teacher wants some kid to say…but does it make a difference coming from the parent?

    I know this because I was on such good terms with just about all of my teachers, from school to college to grad school. (Bought my advisor a complete Dr Seuss starter set when her son was born.)

    There’s always India. College is WAY cheaper over there, and in fact even a scientific or financial or business education is affordable and worth something if you know the right places to look.

    Delhi’s got a lot of the good places.

    That’s odd. I pan-fry and pan-grill rather than bake these. Indian-style. (Somehow it works)

    I’d nominate Taylor Swift, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Ellen Pompeo, Zoe Perry, Janel Moloney or Laura Bell Bundy, depending on what age Dana is.

    Maybe this will get my mother back to her old self…
