Been re-reading the blog looking for inspiration. How much of a narcissist do you have to be to look to yourself for inspiration, a misanthrope? Nevertheless, I decided to come clean and reveal that the quote below, a January 8, 2008 entry, originally attributed to Jonathan Swift, is nothing more than one of my own rantings…. speaking of misanthropic narcissist, just stop what you are doing and wallow in what feels like prophecy…..
Been busy with a Samsung job and then a “common cold” of uncommon ferocity. Sniffling around the blog….
“…………… those affected foragers, manipulating other, less disingenuous characters, elephantine rogues and agitators who rise to pomp and circumstance by playing to that imminent and gullible mind, of a market of believers.
Perpetrators, thinly disguised speculators, obstructionist and talented frocks, biding the acrimonious bile of some authority or power: The backslapper, apple polisher, flatterer and glad hander; within whose easy compliance lies the carbonized core of a hateful, bullying and fearful deceiver; a coddling messenger who seeks compliant listeners, like so many fools before them in respectful demeanor…. you shall forgive me, should you derive any pleasure from thy efforts, but ….. ambition often puts men upon doing the meanest offices; so climbing is performed in the same posture as crawlers.” Jonathan Swift.
Interesting day today:
A- Casting on “Nailin’ Palin”, the porn version of Sarah Palin’s life begins in Los Angeles.
B- My first cousin, Anne Laude, is awarded the “Legion D’ Honneur” for outstanding civilian service to “La Patrie” (that ‘s France to you and me), and the highest honor a french citizen can receive.
C. It’s my birthday. No special honors are awarded on this date but I think I have a pretty good shot at being the male co-star in “Nailin’ Palin*. Crossing my fingers and knocking on wood (no pun intended).
*Other titles we are currently considering are: ” In Palin, Sarah”, “Drill Baby Drill” and “Country Fist”.
