Blogrolling in Our Time -or- 6 Reasons to Read "Jaded Heaven"

First, because you get to ponder this mysterious banner graphic, which never seems to get old, on a daily basis.

Second, you are very likely to see honest and unfiltered reporting on subjects such as what's really going on in the suburbs:My Neighborhood. My friends aren’t the only ones moving and I hear the same reasons for relocating every single time. I can sum it up in two words: White Flight. Only your closest friends say it that bluntly, others couch it in more palatable, politically correct terms.

Third, you'll find blistering reflections on how women screw over men: We Know Your Secret Places. Her new job certainly required a lot of overnight travel and late nights. She started going to happy hour with the ladies, a few margaritas. Come to think of it, she lost the weight, cut her hair, bought new clothes and slapped some make up on before that awful night. You didn't notice, should have noticed.

Fourth, you'll find chilling tales about how men screw over women: Suburban Pastoral. The husband was a ghost. He worked long hours, showed up at functions, waved to the neighbors on weekends. Sometimes he shared a beer with the guys in the street on summer evenings while they watched the kids play. People thought he was a nice guy, a good provider and family man.

Fifth, you can get a peek at real adventures in the skin trade: Skin. Bought myself a black merry widow, a dozen pair of silk stockings to match and a pair of sassy black, patent leather fuck me pumps. Decided to strip sexy. Honey, the entire club made money off my sixteen year old ass.

Sixth, because Daphne flatters me and I'm a sucker for it.

Take a tour of Jaded Heaven. After all, everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to clean up their act.

I wrote a lot of witty, self effacing shit and erased it.

Thank you, Gerard.

Thanks so much, darlin' man. I'm honored.
