Sabah el khan. Ana esmi Tom. Ana moš fī madrasa. Akteb ketāb.
Good morning. My name [is] Tom. I [am] not in school. I write a book.
- - - something that still deeply perplexes me is the concept of 'nice'. what the fuck IS it? receptive to others' personality? allowing space? accepting differences? resilience to violence? but this can be drawn from pure passivity, a 'default' setting. a scared person could be considered nice. obviously, there's much more dialogue behind communication than just verbal exchange. so passivity is only on a sliding scale... being polite is active (even acting) and 'nice', but could be considered deceptive. i've sometimes been accused of being 'nice', and i don't react well to it. for some reason it makes me angry... perhaps i associate a certain amount of supplication or indetermination with the word, because i don't out-and-out dislike the overall concept of 'nice', i just don't understand it. i also find it very alarming when someone i know and care for is not 'nice'. in fact, it pains me, especially when the not-nice is directed towards me. so i propose to exile 'nice' from my vocabulary to avoid the piranhas lurking beneath its surface and use the word 'kind' instead - - -
only six days left for the joke challenge... so far, jordan's won and he didn't even include a punchline! does this not infuriate anyone? (ps. the jokes do not have to be exclusively lewd... personally lame ones impress me the most... eg. Q: What's brown and sticky? A: A stick. OR How does it change many dyslexics to take a lighbulb?)
If anyone was curious as to L's and my joke (v0.3)... it's this (adulterated from original to assist those not from New York) Q: What do you call two dweebs fucking? A: A pairadorks.
