Huh?

From a flyer that showed up in my office, advertising some conference:

"we’ll explore the unique emotional development of boys and men, the different ways men and women respond to psychotherapy, and the special psychological challenges men face, including their preoccupation with money, power, and competition, as well as their use of work, anger, isolation, substance abuse, and sexuality to mask troubling symptoms like depression."

Yeah, I don't have a clue what working excessively long hours has to do with depression. I might have time to think about this if I wasn't so damned busy all the time. Believe me, I am not working all these extra hours because I am hiding, I am working all these extra hours because of deadlines. If I don't work like mad, how likely am I to get a decent raise this year? How likely am I to remain employed if I miss deadlines, despite the fact that a 3 day project was dropped in my lap with a 2 day deadline?

Besides, the only thing waiting for me at home is laundry and mess of an apartment. And the World of Warcraft. And a big goddam spider. Ok, so now I'm a little depressed.

Sounds kind of like a snore fest conference. Anyone who paid attention during psych rounds already knows all of that stuff.

If they bring out the drums, be very afraid.

Well then it's a good thing you have work to mask your troubling symptoms.

Sounds good to me. I'm thinking AG's place? 7:30? Bring energy snacks. AG can hit up all the Craigslisters and I'll bring some of the DC Madam's employees for massages.

Why do we always have to meet up at AG's house? Geesh. Fulsome's would be more cozy. Those CL freaks can forget it. FORGET IT. They are too tragic for AG. Even the Jewish doctors with bad posts.

We could meet at that restroom.. the one at the Jefferson Memorial was it?

I heard that there is a sex sting operation going on in the monument bathrooms, so that should be a good spot to meet some peeps.

Oh good golly.

Meet at AG's and bring your own vaseline and ball gags.
