There are two criticisms I sometimes get.

One is that I'm a loner.

The other is that I care too much about what other people think of me.

I've thought long and hard about those two criticisms, and, I've decided, the critics are right. So, I'm turning over a new leaf. No more being a loner, and no more caring what other people think of me.

Starting today, I'm joining every club, organisation, society, institution, federation, association, affiliation, team, league, lodge, order, fellowship, charity, cause, movement, party, group, gang, pack, clique, and tribe I can find.

Also starting today, I'm going to be as informative, pontifical, iconoclastic, challenging, critical, opinionated, judgemental, contrary, non-conformist, expressive, romantic, extroverted, dramatic, emotional, excitable, confessional, uninhibited, horny, discomfiting, disturbing, boring, eccentric, weird, strange, odd, goofy, neurotic, psychotic and certifiably insane as I damn well please.

But first, I'm going to stop off at the Army-Navy store and get myself some body armor.


  1. Man, they love to hate me. I try to just let it roll off my back.

    But I might need to borrow that body armor one day ...

  2. I think there's a sale going on at Whitey's in Berea.


In order to keep the hucksters, humbugs, scoundrels, psychos, morons, and last but not least, artificial intelligentsia at bay, I have decided to turn on comment moderation. On the plus side, I've gotten rid of the word verification.
