The continuity of Brian

Naturally one expects.
Naturally.
One expects further.
Obviously, naturally.
I feel as if I can give forever.
Naturally one expects reaching.
It is a short distance to my point.
I have naturally given, and you have obviously received.
You have received a given naturally.
And I thank you for that.

That is a bit of my writing called "Really?" I felt it appropriate to start off with that to thank those who responded so graciously to my introduction. I suppose I can now tell you my big deep dark secret. I work for Old Navy. In truth it is a great place to work. And as a side note, I am now 21. I went to Vegas, naturally, and took home about $900. Not bad considering I left with nothing. When in Vegas you must see "O" at The Bellagio. It is Le Cirque's darkest, yet most visually striking, stunning, and inspiring show. I would also not hesitate to suggest to those with the same type of humor as myself to see the musical Chicago. I can honestly say that no matter how bad my day was, this musical always puts me in a good mood.

I am also working on my great American novel, you know, the one we're all supposed to have lurking about. My first draft ended at just over 100 pages, but I hope to expand on ideas, and stop trying to explain everything that is going on. I am also working on a short somewhat autobiographical story called "The Life of Nothing Ness." I wanted a story like my favorite poem, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." I am now rewriting that as well, and if I feel it is good enough, I will post it.

As for social and love life, that is still six feet under. Naturally, I am the only one that can do something about that, but when the time comes. I still haven't joined any social clubs. No LGBA whatever they are. No activity groups, nothing. But it's not like I have time. When I am not in school, I am at work for nine hours helping stock the new flagship at 4th and Market. And any time off, I need to sleep. Which reminds me. It is now 3:30 AM, I have to wake up at 6 AM, and work 2:50 to 11:50. So I will leave you with something that I thought of that makes me smile every time I read it.

Mary The Bunny hopped from the sun. Well Done!

Good night.
