    *throws cookies at* No moping!

    I’ll try to be there for the chats but I’m sich as a dog, so no promises.

    Check out the interview with Cecilia on Gay Book Reviews, too, people.

    I’ll try to be at the chat too, but it is the middle of homework and get dinner on the table crazy times at my house.

    “At this point if BNC’s going to fuss over us playing songs we fucking wrote we should just fuck it and bomb the place.” -And this is why we miss Bart when he’s not around!

    “Like we’d just played at our own funeral.” -Oh, Daron. *hugs*

    As Lena said, the chat is during family time. I hope it will be posted after like last time. They are a lot of fun to read, even if I don’t get to participate.

  • Amy says:

    Oh, Daron. I hope you find your way forward soon, instead of constantly being mired in the things you’ve had to give up. At least you and Ziggy seem to be making progress.

  • Jude says:

    Duuude. I wish you had a therapist you liked who you could call for an appointment, even just on the phone. The Ziggy tour thing is throwing you all out of kilter.

    • daron says:

      I think maybe I would’ve felt that way even without the Ziggy tour thing hanging over me. The end of the band feeling more like a death than a breakup, it’s like I’m still not done grieving or something.

      • marktreble says:

        The five stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. You skipped bargaining and you’re between anger and depression. Even acceptance is a stage of grief. It doesn’t mean that you’ve stopped grieving.

        I’m more than a year into grief over the realization that the majority of my adulthood was spent in needless misery. Every time I think I’ve reached acceptance I bounce right back to anger. You just accepted that it was a death and not a break-up. You’ve been grieving for the breakup, and now you have to start grieving for the death.

        • daron says:

          What’s the expression these days “stay woke”? After you take the pill and drop out of the Matrix and see life as it is, you can’t go back. We’re glad you’re woke.

          And you got it right: realizing it was a death and that I was grieving over it was a big thing. Not that I had that many breakups to compare it to (one?) but yeah.

  • chris says:

    If the interview foreshadows the end of the story I can’t read it…just can’t. Sorry CTan, but you can never stop helping Daron tell his story, even if that story is him angsting over selecting his Medicare plan!

    • s says:

      YES! I would read Daron and Ziggy using walkers to get around and complaining about how music was so much better back in their day. Of course, they couldn’t hear each other unless they turned up their hearing aids, but sometimes that makes the fighting even better. Lol. Oh, jeez, I’m picturing this now…perhaps a FF for one of the monthly challenges…*giggling way too much to type*

    • ctan says:

      I wouldn’t say it foreshadows the end of the story. I say, as usual, that we’ll know the end when we get there. We’ll all know when it’s time. It’s clearly not time yet. 🙂

    “Like we’d just played at our own funeral.”

    This line kills me. I’m still not over the break up of the band either.
