He says it all.

I think these pretty much cover it. This is awesome, because now you can just say "Crazy Talk Right", and I can answer "Crazy Talk Left" and we can get back to chatting about boys and working out.

So, how's the working out? And when do we get more posts about pie?

out of curiosity, what is pie season for you'se? Since you just made some a while back, maybe it's all the time... When I was a kid we never turned on the oven during spring/summer, so fall/winter was pie season...

What about those of us who want to say "Crazy Talk Libertarian"?!!

And are there any boys to talk about these days? I enjoy picking apart your love life more than picking apart your politics.

Working out is fine. She upped the weight considerably last night, and it wasn't close to my limits. But she doesn't want me to injure myself, so it'll be a while before we figure out where I should be working.


'pends on whether you want strawberry pie or stonefruit pie or apple pie.


Crazy Talk Right covers you guys pretty well.

No particular boys recently, but even if there were, boys get privacy until they go back to their exes.

JMPP: "Crazy Talk Libertarian"?!!"

Megan: "Crazy Talk Right covers you guys pretty well."

I'm not sympathetic anymore. You just ask for trouble.

Maybe you could update us on your romantic life in a general way. That recent post on two fellas groping you and remarking on your remarkable strength made we think: "Hey...she's getting more than she lets on."

A4, mark and remark

Did you read Crazy Talk Right? It sounds just like you guys. Seriously. I'm not confusing right wing conservatism with libertarianism. I understand the difference. But his essay sounds exactly like the comments I get here, at least as close as Crazy Talk Left sounds like me.

Also, that was two instances over the past year and a half. I'm not getting none, but I'm not getting much.

"Did you read Crazy Talk Right?"

Well, not really. I'm diligent, so I read the beginning and the end. Just long enough to get the feel for it. Honestly, I have a physical reaction to reading stuff written in that style...I get very uncomfortable. Even though it is satire, I react to the general snotty attitude.

This is why I read comments here but almost nowhere else.

Oh man. I thought they were great.

You know, his satire is not even as extreme as some of the comments I get here. Since he was funny, and hit most the cliches evenly, I liked the snark.

Only if you drop the PS part.

Yeah, let's talk about working out!!!

I just gave a taxi driver career advice for his son who has just finished high school and is interested in computers but doesn't know what to study. How much do you think "do what you're interested in" (subtext: and don't be one of my students if you aren't interested) is worth? I think I should have got at least 50p off the fare.

Furthermore, I suggested studying maths as a viable alternative (baited with the line "he'll be able to just walk into the City [of London] and earn a shedload" (this understandably being a concern for a taxi driver who is on the midnight shift on a Wednesday night). I think y'all owe me 50p for that one.

But people LOVE to give advice. Maybe he should have charged you extra for the opportunity to drop some wisdom.

Blogger Noel said...

Hah! Well put, Megan. To be honest it was a bit uncomfortable. The guy was obviously sincere and worried about his kid, and I really wasn't in a position to say anything useful not knowing his kid at all (other than he got a "B" in A-level Computing, whatever that means). We'd just had a confusing conversation about my studies which made me think the taxi driver wasn't totally aware of the intricacies of our fine University educational system (there is no reason he should be), and I'm not totally aware of the intricacies of our fine high school system so, erm?

Blogger Megan said...

Well, you can't go wrong suggesting that someone study math. Math loves everybody.

5:36 PM  
Blogger Noel said...

That's so true. I can sleep easily now. ZZzzzzzzzz......

[The stream of z's obviously indicates I'm having complex dreams. See how Maths loves us!]

"do what you're interested in"

And don't forget to join the Facebook group "I Picked a Major I Like, and One Day I Will Probably Be Living In a Box" while you're at it.

When I was single, I'd have regarded that as a dream run.

But things are easier for women I suppose.

Would Michelangelo ever have impressed his masterwork upon the ceiling of the Sistene Chapel if he’d been on some kind of a government contract?

This is going to be, sorry now is, my quote of the month.

Oh Jacqueline, so pessimistic. It's a great big wide world with jobs for all sorts of people.

Anyway, I should probably join that group, or are you not allowed if your major is also employable?

Maybe we should start a Facebook group for Megan.
