For my own benefit as well as for the lurid curiosity of anyone who still reads this, I like to document how I look as I get older, just so there's a record of the march of time. So here's Sparky at the ripe old age of 35:

Also, a number of people have reminded me that this site serves a valuable need for a heart monitor, so note that I am alive and well, and occasionally neither working nor stressing out. Phone and e-mails responses are as sporadic as ever, but hopefully by now you've all learned to love me despite that chronic problem.

And in accordance with the International Treaty on Gay Blogger Clichés, I felt the need to include the standard blurry, badly lit, shirtless-in-the-bathroom-mirror shot:

Sparky nekkid

Please note the following:

  1. This is a notable accomplishment, since it indicates that I think I’m no longer morbidly obese, and perhaps no longer a total eyesore.

  2. Yes, this also indicates that I am not only deeply insecure, but also terribly vain. Gay, remember?

  3. That appendectomy scar is much less nasty than it once was, thankfully.

  4. You can't touch it, though, because that creeps me out.
