so whenever the backpatting gets too much, i have to remind you i can be quite the bitch too. here’s a for-instance:
you know those meme thingys, the [insert day here] [insert number or theme here]? i don’t like them. i think sullivan was going to say something about this, and i’d have been happy to vent in his comments, but no. so i had to say something myself. it’s time.
i hold nothing against these memes — no wait i do, otherwise what’s my point? i hold nothing against the people who participate in them. the idea itself, well, it’s probably quite cool. however, it’s entirely possible an entire blog’s content could be generated just coming up with answers to these questions. and, this is not my vision of blogging.
and i’ll confess here that no matter how much i dig your blog, if i see one of these as an entry, i skim quickly or not at all and surf on. no offense. i’d rather read what you are thinking about, the spontaneous contents of your own mind, and how you answer your own questions. a great example of this is ‘one hundred things about me’ – 100 independent thoughts. i love those. (still working on thinking about doing that myself)
i only ever answered one of these things — it was the asian bastard‘s, and it had a question about have you ever pooped your pants as an adult, and for some reason i felt the need to share that. i answered in his comments, and that was that.
so you see i’m not all that nice. i’m a picky bitch, infact. and now you know.
