Were-ing Out Your Welcome...


Preppy Girl and I got into a discussion this morning about being cynical. I have always been a firm beliver in the power of cynicism. A healthy cynic uses quick wit sprinkled with poisonous crank-ocity to deal with many daily dissappointments. It's a little like sour grapes in reverse...

BUT, there is a point where you go over to the dark side. I have been there. Its a miserable place to visit and I don't ever want to live there. Ask Princess SLea. She knew me then. I was a miserable SOB 24-7.

So anyway... the key, as in may things, is to strike a balance. Preppy Girl made an analogy about a certain type of cynicism. "Jekyl/Hyde" cynicism is pretty common. You know 'em... the people who are inspirationally up-beat until something goes pop, and there before your eyes a transformation occurs! And then... before you know it, they are back to pleasant.

Personally, I think I have a different type. I think that if I were to compare to anything, I'd say my case study is more like a "Werewolf" cynicism. Mine is usually triggered by the same thing, again and again. Honestly, there really a cure for this type; STAY AWAY FROM THE MOONLIGHT. Think I will try it.

Is that a real cure? I don't really know. I mean, I picture Lon Chaney chained to a dungeon wall, fighting the urge to even think about the moon. But as much as you deny it exists, you know somewhere in the back of your mind, your brain is telling you the moon is still there. AAAAAAARRRRRROOOOOOOO!

There's gotta be some kind of silver bullet, and I don't mean a Coors Light.

And by the way... big thanks to Galoot for reminding me of one of my favorite movies lines...
"There wolf."
"There castle."

I wish I could take credit for that, but I only started the "Young Frankenstein" discussion. Kip, I'm pretty certain, brought up werewolf.

Some call me cynical, I think I'm more realistic - I think it's all about perception.

CYNICAL: For me, I associate it to the synonyms, sarcastic and satirical. Both in a good humored or witty way, not the negative connotation.

Someone used to say, when referring to your snarkiness, that Aquarian men were moody. I just thought somedays you liked me and some days I was annoying. I think I was right :).

Hump? What, hump?

Ummm....I'm sorry. You said Princess Slea knew you when you were a miserable SOB (stress the were)....

Anyway, I have been asking you for a picture of me for, oh, I don't know, 16 freakin' years now and I see that PreppyGirl and Princess Slea have one.

Who the hell do you have to sleep with to get a freakin' picture!?
