"I had rather be a canker in his hedge than a rose in his grace, and it better fits my blood to be disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob love from any: In this, though I cannot be said to be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied that I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and seek not to alter me."
- William Shakespeare, _Much Ado About Nothing_

"Make no friends with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul."
Proverbs 22:24-25 (KJV)

"The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are."
- HL Mencken

"Too many people in this gutless world have come under the impression that writers are a race of finks, queers and candy asses to be bilked, cheated and mocked as a form of commercial sport. It should be noted, therefore, in the public interest, that some writers possess .44 Magnums and can puncture beer cans with 240-grain slugs from that weapon at a distance of 150 yards."
-Dr. Hunter S Thompson

"You are a sick, twisted, sadistic, monsterous fuck. But you know, these are your finer qualities."

"I was told when I grew up I could be anything I wanted: a fireman, a policeman, a doctor-- even President, it seemed. And for the first time in the history of mankind, something new, called an astronaut. But like so many kids brought up on a steady diet of Westerns, I always wanted to be the avenging cowboy hero-- that lone voice in the wilderness, fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth and justice. And in my heart of hearts I still track the remnants of that dream wherever I go, in my endless ride into the setting sun."
-Bill Hicks, _Revelations_

Start your engine, Elf.

And you might want to fasten your seatbelt. This is going to be epic.

Okay, seventy hellos back to everyone, as rioting children dance around me. I'd bring the bedlam to order, but some mornings I enjoy revelling in the chaos, knowing that I am the Lord of Discord.

Get the popcorn and the big, comfy chairs. Relax. Enjoy. Anyone who's been keeping up with current events can attest to the fact that the Elf and I should sell tickets to our dueling comments.

(For the record, she and my cat have much in common. They'll both decide to prove how fierce they are, and I'll let them bite and claw for a while so they feel like they're winning. But in the end neither truly stands a chance.)*

Spike, it's a Scottish dirk the length of my forearm (it's an impressively long forearm).

Gael, Geo, talk of work will only bring me down. Try to keep the comments civilized.

Alfie- "the legend"? What on Earth has she been telling people about me? Dear Lord, I'm almost afraid to know.

Right. Back to pretending to be a teacher again.

*This is the part where the Elf starts with the sabre rattling. It's personally my favorite part.**

**Well, not my favorite part. Definitely the most amusing. My *favorite* part is what that blade is waiting for.

You make it too easy. You forget I've *seen* you interact with Gatsby.

Who OWNS you.


Perfect analogy, really.
It is ever so cute when you leave yourself open like that. Proves you were never a fencer.

Spike says:

nice choice!

Euphro says:

A belated hello to you to too, and good to talk to you on Saturday night :) *sits back to watch the show*

Xochizlan says:

Never a fencer. But I do work in subterfuge and misdirection as some artists work in oils. The more you think you win, the more you're wrapped around my finger.

Hello there!

I'm sorry we got cut off at the party, and I'm also sorry for sounding like a blithering idiot at the party; there was lots of background noise and I had trouble focusing.

In any way - welcome to moblog!

23rd May 2006, 16:17

Geodyne says:

OK, I do apologise.

In return, I demand catblogging!

23rd May 2006, 16:20

Xochizlan says:

Coincidentally enough, Geo, that was my plan.

bronxelf says:

Gatsby is very cute. Sort of like a very small Hydrox, but mostly bald. Strange cat. A cute little boy though. He apparently thinks Im okay.

23rd May 2006, 16:24

Xochizlan says:

He said I could keep you.
