READ ME ... yeah, right. Right?

I'm sick of everyone else having on-line diaries. I want one too.

What is this all about? Maybe you should read the READ ME READ ME.

november 29, 1996: quickies

It really is amazing how words that seem so profound and therapeutic when scribbled on receipts on the way home from the gym ring tinnily when typed into the text document.

A. Haves and have-nots.

There are two types of people -- people who have nothing, and people who have a search for something.

B. Futurism.

The tarot is not a useful means of making decisions when there appear to be few options from which to decide.

C. Consistency.

It is not really possible to "quit" when you are self-employed.

D. Luck.

Why do people believe that if they buy enough lottery tickets, they are eventually going to win some day?

E. Variety.

My career is like my sex life: short-lived passionate moments of intense clarity and acute success, separated by long hours of desperation and quest.

F. Education.

Is it ever possible to learn a lesson before making a mistake first?

G. Role-Playing.

"Be careful of what you pretend to be, because, in the end, you are what you pretend to be." (Vonnegut).

Thus, if we pretend to be something, do we always become it?

H. Communication.

Lying is a very political action.

I. Objectivity.

There is no lack of bias.

J. Polling data.

Surveys show: the most common response is lack of response.

K. Success.

"It took me 40 years to become comfortable with this song; I am now allowed to sing it the way I feel." (Lena Horne)

L. Dreams.

I live for the thought of the day when I can look back and say, "Remember how hard things were then?"

You may hide undercover or go in disguise,
But at Safeway a Person is That Which She Buys.
