cod liver oil

I swear to Bejus that I would rather drink an entire bottle of cod liver oil than read shit like this:

Someone whose thoughts matter a great deal to me asked me recently if I was reliving or only remembering the events of last year. I understand the difference, but am not sure I know the answer, neither perhaps, knowing that I am more than remembering, not sure if I have the opportunity yet to re-live. In so many ways, it is as if I am living last year for the first time. I lived it then in the moment, these last few weeks before she left us, almost completely in the moment, unencumbered by any sense of balance, any regard for the ordinary world around me. Impassioned and unobjective, I was the least of what I could be for her, even as I struggled to make sense of the path upon which she had been set. And so, my memory is poor, rejuvenated only now in the vise of lifeís details, succumbed to the drug that is grief, a numbing narcotic, it highlights, focuses, and paints with graphic lurid color upon some of the smallest things, creating connections where there might actually be none, missing the obvious, the everyday, weaving a world where there should be none. So, I do not re-live, I live instead for the first time, watching as a witness, in some ways for a chaste time, the path untrammeled through the course of what I have lived before. I have lived so long anesthetized, the peeling away of numbness is new, the feelings felt anachronistic, the familiar reacquaintance with reality overcome with disappointment.

Some people simply should not be allowed to play with words. They make a mess with them or grow up to be Ward Churchills. And I am not giving that dripping piece of pap a link, either.

Guess what? It comes from California.

Imagine my surprise.

Anyone who hasn't mastered the use of paragraph breaks is per se a bore.

I think I need a nap after that one.

I'm afraid I don't speak Californian, just Southern.
Someone here wanna translate that, it doesn't make a bit of sense to me.

My head just succumbed to the drug that is blather. Surprisingly, it exploded. Oh well.

I'm with you. After reading that profound passage, all I could say was, "huh?" It sounds like something a politician might say after being asked, "Senator, was that you I saw coming out of that motel room with a hooker?"

Translation: Someone I know has some problems. It makes me sad.

While I lived in California until I was 31, I never did succumb to blathering like this.

Wait, wait, I think I can translate...

"I just got a thesaurus for my birthday, and I can now articulate the grief I've felt living for years as a pansy trapped in a liberal's body. Help me."

Those are not the words of a PHD - those are the words of an an agst-ridden moron.

Oh. My. God. I should have trusted your judgment, Acidman. But no. Like a smartass, I had to google on a phrase in that turgid mess, and was directed to the mother lode. It goes on and on, post after post, written in "touchy-feely" dialect. The horror. The horror. I need something to restore my mental equilibrium. Ah, yes, a nice shot of Maker's Mark. Right now.

All better now.

Huh?

Why no link?

I'm thinking that the lack of paragraphs is due to your copy and paste. You also provide the quote without context.

C'mon, be fair. If your going slag someones writing, at least have the courtesy to let people read it for themselves. If you don't want to give them the Google juice, use: rel="nofollow". It's all about learning to use your tools, Mr. Acid Factory Management .

Linky-love... kiss my Cracker ass. I make the rules around here. I you want to link that piece if shit YOU DO IT.

Otherwise, shut the fuck up. I am NOT in a good mood today,

Posted by: Acidman on February 11, 2005 07:20 PM

Ok, so, to be generous, this made absolutely no sense. But go easy on the California references. Not all folks from there write like that.

Do you all feel better now that you've totally poked fun at what is the obvious ramblings of someone who is experiencing deep, emotional, gutrenching pain? It's so typical to make fun of something or someone you cannot understand, is it not?
