note to self re/ my FRICKIN' colleagues...*

[To self] know that fortissimo audibly-narcissistic excessively-frequent use of the various permutations of the first-person pronoun ("I," "ME," "MINE," and far less frequently "we") that makes those words leap out of otherwise-ignorable faculty conversations in university coffeeshops and that makes a given faculty peer's conversation sound like "[mumble mumble mumble] I [mumble mumble] MY [mumble mumble ] inappropriate [mumble mumble mumble] MY OPINION "? That tone, inflection, focus, and general aura of unexamined self-love that makes entirely too large a percentage of the general population think we're spoiled out-of-touch pompous asses....? That one?

Don't ever do that.

[time to put in the earplugs]

*NB: thank God, with the exception of my music colleagues, most of whom have far more healthy senses of self-deprecation.

You are a terrorist-loving, Bush-bashing, "blame America first"-crowd traitor. You are in league with evil-doers who hate our freedoms. By all counts you are a liberal, and as such cleary desire the terrorists to succeed and impose their harsh theocratic restrictions on us all. You are fit to be hung for treason! Luckily George Bush is tapping your internet connection and is now aware of your thought-crime. Have a nice day.... in Guantanamo!
