Because sometimes it is better to addendum than edit:

and, I *do* understand your point but, really, I'm all about the cooking and making out. And writing tankas for the love of all the gods. I need be knocked upon the head by something sensible, soon. I also need get to sleep!

Re: Because sometimes it is better to addendum than edit:

I'm ambivalent about list-making of this sort, as my subject header suggests. At the same time, though, I don't see, in light of your comment, how making lists about oneself is all that different than participating in memes that generate a profile of oneself. Perhaps the latter are more easily revealed to produce non-unique results?

Cooking and making out are definitely more "Zen", given the degree to which they involve focusing on the now. But there is fun to be had in list-making, too, particularly when practiced with a healthy dose of irony. One of the reasons I'm going to be making a list or two about myself is that I feel the need to find more matches, with more overlap, in the realm of "friends" and, with luck, friends. Although I hardly regard myself as unique, I seem to have a hard time finding folks who share many of my interests. And, yes, I recognize that the phrase "my interests," despite its practical utility, is not at all "Zen."

Memes results usually come with pictures, that's how it's different!

I was so drunk and cheery last night, that I don't actually even remember what I wrote in my comments exactly and I'm sure it would scald my eyes right out of my head to re-read them now that I'm sober, so! I won't!

We are, by the way, going out for more beers and dancing tonight if you want to join us.

I'm supposed to go out tonight to see a friend, so I could well be free for a bit. What time? Where?

And, while I often find your prose scalding, I thought your comments in this case were apt. Lists are interesting at times, but way overdone.

We'll be going to Asylum, probably around 9, until around whenever; babysitter is scheduled until 2ish, but we've not been staying out so late lately (except for at the salty dawg, where somehow one always ends up shutting it down, no matter what one initially intends).

Ahh, the Salty Dawg. . .

I'll try to swing by Asylum between 10pm and 12n.

Great! I might be wearing an Epic 70's wig tonight!

12m, I meant. Wigs are good!

Wigs are full of awesome! Or, they can be, depending on the head they are filled with! ;)
