It gave me humor, it gave me a certain what-a-fuck-up-I-am shtick to play with when the worst was over..the side effects, the by products of depression, seems to keep me going.

I was always able to reduce whatever craziness I'd experienced into the perfect antidote, the ideal cocktail party monologue...I thought this ability, to tell away my personal life as if it didn't belong to me, to be queerly chatty and energetic at moments that most people found inappropriate, was what my friends liked about me."

(I can only think of one thing I do with another person that really has no room to add any sort of knitting to, but let's not discuss it here.)"

Are we capable of entertaining the possibility that there may have been a holy entity in the cross as well as on it?"
