my kingdom for a comment
I would lllllllove it if someone posted a comment to one of these things, besides the Ignominious Redhead, who is an ignorant slut.
Also, stay tuned about my date with the Anonymous Guy. I don't particularly dig anonymous guys, but I figured I'd give him a shot. I'll bring my handy quarterstaff.

I wonder what color hair the Anonymous Guy has. Also, will you seduce him?
I wonder, too. I don't know. I might seduce him, if he's attractive, or if he offers me really good hooch.
despite advertising, I find no news whatsoever concerning the antics, amusing or otherwise, of Lisbeth the hamster. Dissapointed, I post a poingnant comment and leave, but not without stealing a link (and I'm not telling which one)
Yes, I'm sorry about that. Lisbeth the hamster is just a lie. I once knew a couple of teens who called each other "little hamster" with great tenderness & thus the phrase was in the front of my brain when I scribbled the introduction to my journal. Which is not a blog.
You can read, however, about my kittens Lotus & Second Best.
May I ask, Mr Billiejoewhatsit, what you mean when you say you "stole a link"? To what use are you going to put it? I promise that I'm not being artificially ingenuous; I'm just not much of a "web-surfer", if you will, & didn't know that links COULD be stolen.
Also, I appreciate your use of the word "poignant" and forgive you for spelling it wrong. I'm willing to believe that your misspellings, since they all seem to involve extra letters, are just typing errors. Thus we can be friends.
a) the link to the site itself, which amuses me.
b) you are absolutely correct. One is a writer by trade, and thusly requires at least a moderate grasp of the intricacies of the English language. One could, however, claim geographic 'sanctuary' and pretend that such spellings are merely the Antipodean version of said words. One would, however, be lying.
One imagines that one would have figured that out.
What kinds of things do you write, Billy Joe? I myself was once an advice columnist, and thus can also call myself a "writer by trade", though right now all I do is smoke and watch Paul leaf through magazines with my binoculars.
nothing interesting, i'm afraid - the current document in question is entitled "expression of interest for eco-tourism marketing resource development".
i think leafing through magazines with binoculars would be awfully difficult.
Is it just me, or does it gross you out when people lick their fingers when they leaf through magazines?
sure - sexy if THEY'RE sexy - but what if they're people whose tongues you really don't want to see? overweight middle aged and all round unattractive? this is not good - i think it depends on reading matter too - catching mass transit into the office every day i am forced to endure people reading the most abominable things...
I think overweight people are rawther sexy, too.
As for abominable things: what do you mean? Muscle magazines? Those are repellent but fascinating.
repellent reading matter: tabloid press of any description - particularly that marketed as "news you can read easily" or some such - mckinsey readability statistics performed on one of the major daily newspapers here shows that the writing style is targeted at those with a reading level equivalent to the third grade. Also journalism purported to contain objective reporting on current affairs, but with an obvious, right wing, killemallletgodsortemout agenda contained in the aforementioned rag.
I saw this special on plastic surgery yesterday where these really great looking girls with fantastic bodies were getting unnecessary liposuction and tummy tucks and nose jobs. It was horrific! This one girl was really pretty but I guess she wanted to have a much-to-small plastic nose rather than her proportional attractive nose. It was really depressing. There was also a guy who got calf implants so that it looked like his calves were really muscular.
Every issue of Men's Health is the same. There's a guy with big impressive abs on the cover, some article about 6 ways to jazz up your sex life, a 12 step program to better abs, etc. Why anyone buys more than one issue is beyond me.
Why do people who get plastic surgery all want to have those pointy little Michael Jackson style noses?
also - how long are we expected to wait for news of the anonymous date? (i wonder about the possibilities here - how does one have an anonymous date - "hi - would you like to go out to dinner and then not exchange phone numbers?" sounds like the plot of a quirky romantic comedy no doubt starring john cusack (whose work has been sadly lacking since his halcyon days in grosse pointe blank and being john malkovich)) ((oh, and high fidelity - although that too tread dangerously close to "quirky"))
where was i? oh yes - slack posters...
Yeah, well, now you see how the date went. it was pretty fucking anonymous.
I guess it would be kind of like Serendipity, which was a pretty terrible movie. Grosse Pointe Blank was all right, I suppose, and I loved High Fidelity because of the nerdy music guys and I love nerdy music guys though I feel vastly inferior to them, because I know they feel about me exactly the same way the guys in that movie felt about the dad who wanted to buy "I just called to say I love you" but that kind of also titillates me, but who knows. But of course a woman like myself cannot escape "Say Anything" because of the boombox, and because I was too young when I saw it to resist. If I were to see it know I would doubtless be less in love with the poor bastard.
I read the lists of books you read, trying to scare up some literary piety toward the virtues of good reading. Well, but I rarely read books. I watch videos, addictively. For my fictional needs, I have to write my own. There just isn't anything out there that is twisted enough, or in the right way. This is why I sustain an enormous loyalty and deep appreciation for your site, AB. You are twisted enough, and in just the right way.
Well, I can't think of a better compliment than that I'm twisted enough, though I marvel that you can't find enough twisted fiction in this vale of tears and twistedness that we call the planet Earth. What kind of videos do you watch, anyway? Also, I certainly wouldn't mind having a look at your fiction --
