My scriptlets are finished, I’m sending them out on Monday. The time I spent worrying about writing them vs the time I spent writing them: 100 : 1. Now, feedback and someone decides whether to pull the trigger and shoot them.
A cloud of malaise still hovers overhead, but I am working through it. Sort of. I should probably be in therapy. If I still feel like this after KilBaby’s first birthday, I’ll make time for it. Something about a life spent trying to get spots has made me dread being alive. Many years ago, I saw Dana Carvey perform and I thought if I could be that comfortable speaking in front of people, I could die happy. Well, I’ve been a comic for almost twenty years and if my JetBlue flight explodes tomorrow night, I’ll die dissatisfied and annoyed.
I am deep in the rabbit hole of vaccination debates. Do I vaccinate KilBaby? The current vaccination schedule for infants is extremely aggressive. Some of the vacs contain aluminum. Many of them used to contain mercury. Right now, hospitals try to vaccinate newborns for Hep-B at birth. What baby, besides baby Tommy Lee, needs a Hep-B vaccine when he is just days old? How about my son gets cold sores first and then we’ll talk the Hep-B vaccine.
Polio was eradicated from the Western Hemisphere in 1994. Why does KilBaby need a polio vaccine at 2 months, plus boosters? Can’t the polio vac wait until mom gets casino work in Nigeria? The CDC and FDA are ass-covering federal bureaucracies and vaccines are huge business for Merck, et al.
I wish that most of the anti-vac websites didn’t look like this. Oh well, I guess we all have a copy of Pagemaker lying around.
