Ghetto superstar

My apartment reeks of fries, as though someone was frying in my kitchen. I only have a few minutes between a jog and carpet yoga and a shower and running to P's to make some burritos to write what I want to say. Even though hardly anyone, as far as I know, reads this blog (is it because I don't push it or is it because it's boring, or just due to the huge saliency of blogs and the fact that it doesn't have an attractive interface?), I still have hope that someone somewhere will read it and think it valuable, that I will help someone, or that one day everything that I have been writing here and on various web forums and in emails will converge into a more serious piece of writing.

I have been banned, or banned myself, from the Ynet HIV forum, which is probabaly the most widely seen forum on the Israeli net. The guy who runs it is a complete tightass and I don't know or care to know what the fuck his problem is. I didn't however censure myself on other forums, and I am glad for that. I heard that the Isreali AIDS Task Force will open a forum restricted to HIV+ people, but I don't want to be squeezes into any kind of ghetto. I am glad that I am able to be accepted and understood, to a degree, on other forums, even populist ones, and despite the fact that I write in English. I think this sends a strong message across - I am just like everyone else, or rather, just because I am not like everyone else on the HIV level, it doesn't mean that I have to leave myself at the whims and caprices of a positive drama queen who thinks he can erase me just because he feels like it, whenever he feels like it. I am not angry, I am just pissed, but there will always be a-holes on this planet, and unfortunately, some of them will even have HIV. I mean, just because someone has the bug, as I assume he does, doesn't mean than he is a "good" person, au contraire.

Anyway, who cares? The frying smell is making me hungry...

Hey Dragonette,

I want to wish you a happy holiday. Your blog means a lot to folks out there, and reaches a whole new group every day through I honestly believe that the time we take to communicate our lives is having a big effect on people around the world. You are making a difference.

All the best (however we need to define that) today and every day.
