No, I'm not dead. I've just been trying to stay focused on non-LJ things, like starting my own business. I'll try to check in more often though.
In the mean time, here's something that happened at a party last weekend:
The party was an April Fool's joke party to, ahem, "celebrate" our president, who is surely some kind of joke (though probably a bad one). A lot of people were satirically dressed as Republicans, but there was one guy there who everyone was gossiping about being a real Log Cabin Republican. At one point in the evening he tried to chat me up.
I had just gone to grab a cookie to nosh on. There was only one cookie left on the plate, so I broke it in half, took one half and left the other. LC guy steps up and takes the other half, saying, "If you're only going to take part, I'll take the rest." I replied, "That's such a Republican thing to say." He really didn't know what to say after that.
