|05:46 pm - MJD: Asshole|
I've decided that I should just write a regular column for Oak Leaves.
We'll call it:
"Wisdom from the Asshole in the Back of the Room"
Because, you know, that's really all I got. Disjointed comments and crazy rants.
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "In the Shelter", -JB
Well, not saying I object to being only disjointed comments and crazy rants. Just saying that I might as well make it regular in a printed column, instead of just LJ :)
We call that being the Peanut Gallery. I do it in Econ sometimes, but I stop half-way through so that when I slink out of the door later on no one misses my absence. ;)
Today a very disturbing young man joined our peanut gallery. He first just sat there in the corner intensely reading a Bible and frantically writing on a notebook as he looked at it (which was an amusing contrast to me, who happily doodled pagan symbols on her notes as she looked out the window pondering what time to leave.) He then leapt unexpectedly into our desperate attempt to convince our teacher that we didn't want to live right after the American Revolution (long story, it was a GDP example) to say that HE would rather live richly then than middle-class now, because then he could hang out with sophisticated educated people and NOT the morons and mass-media-controlled zombies he's subjected to in daily life. Wow, talk about bitter... we all looked at him, and then I suggested to my neighbor instead that maybe a better reason to live there would be superior hats. Naturally, my Econ teacher feels the need to listen to everything I bother to murmur, and so "better hats" went up on the board under list of pros.
A later suggestion of classier piracy also almost wound up there, but then we somehow got into a brief debate about modern piracy versus old piracy. It was a marvelous tangent slot... haha, when I am not quenching them at PSA, I am generating them and watching them dance elsewhere. THAT'S what talking out will getyou!
So, it'd be you talking shit?
Doing what I already do, yaknow?
I think it's a novel idea!
I don't think 'asshole' fits you. Whether you fit an asshole, I don't want to know. But go for the column!
Aha! I see your mind. You get people addicted to your LJ, and then move on to the subscription-based newsletter format! Next it will be "you must have cookies enabled to view this disjointed commentary" and unsolicited advertisements for Chronarchy Cash Rewards Credit Cards.
Redeem your purchases for witty sayings and annoying calls for sex magic!
A column is just a blog that has the blessings of an editor. A columnist is just a blogger who gets paid. ;)
It would be interesting to charge for access to my LJ :)
Really, there's no response for that.
Sure there is. Think hard.
That's why I find you so entertaining, though. ;-)
I'm not entertaining. I just look funny.

Nope, you need a new title
wait, I've been in four rooms (give or take a couple, my criteria isn't really defined) with you and you were neither an asshole nor in the back (and I'm going to resist typing that you weren't wise, because, well, I'm not sure I can use "neither" with a list of three things)
