your world must have very dry literature

I so very much want to go back to the carefree and happy-go-lucky days of Bad Samaritan. Back when I posted nothing more serious than hangnail. It seems this site has become nothing more than me bitching about this and that, and frankly, Iím sick of it. Iím sure you all are too.

Iím ready to go back to being frivolous, but Iím not sure how.

Itís hard to seem like I donít have any worries in the world when all I do on this world is worry. If I were in love, I could joke about sex without it seeming bitter and resentful. Iíd be back to making cracks about J Loís ass, if only I had one of my own to grab onto at night.

And if I had a job, I could go back to, well, eating for one, but also go back to railing against corporate America like the younger, skinner, much handsomer Michael Moore I used to be. Now, I look upon my days in corporate America with colored glasses thicker than Rosie OíDonnell. Sure, if I had a job, itíd probably back in corporate America and Iíd have to sign some sort of anti-defamation clause that would force to stifle my radical actions, but Iíd still be thinking my radical thoughts, and could finally afford the subscription to Ad Busters.

Iím not even feeling creatively satisfied. Sure, this site is doing well, hits are consistent, comments are consistent, even people beside myself have been posting recently. But I feel like Iím not doing enough with it. The site isnít what I meant it to be. It isnít what it has been when I loved writing here most. It isnít a disappointment, either.

It just is.

And if it wasnít I wouldnít have a place to exercise these demons, and I suppose that is a good thing. But, Iíve still got an itch somewhere deep inside that I havenít been able to scratch. As mentioned previously, there are big changes in the works, changes bigger than simply a new design (though there is a new design). This change should have been made weeks ago, and will be done soon, whether I like it or not.

Nothing like making external changes when whatís really bothering you is inside here (this is the point where you have to imagine me pounding my chest with my fist).

Anyway, the whole point is, if you, my devoted readers, would all get together and help me find a job, a girlfriend, and a creative muse, then we can get back the Bad Samaritan that brought everyone here in the first place. Youíve been loyal through these down times, now show your love by hooking me up with some love, and I guarantee things will get back to normal. I promise, really, you just have to hold up your end of the bargain.

This was the only kind i could make for so long.

If you want to move to Minnesota, I might be able to find a job around here.

well, of course you could stay with us but you wouldn't want to, really.

I used my site to troll for an Official Muse a while back. Much to my surprise, somebody actually signed up. So hey, stranger things have happened....

you could be a sugar daddy. that way you'd have a girlfriend and a muse, and they probably wouldn't be one in the same. you'd still have to find a job, though. to buy all your pimpwear.

I'll be your girlfriend--you don't mind lesbians for girlfriends, do you?

by jadedju at March 21, 2002 5:14 PM

You know, I wouldn't mind a lesbian girlfriend at all. As long as you could occasionally bring over some of your bi-girlfriends for some night-long yahtzee sessions.

by mg at March 21, 2002 5:54 PM

Yahtzee, hmmn. Well, okay, if me and my posse can play some poker too.

by jadedju at March 21, 2002 6:09 PM

Dude, I told you: I'm working on the job. Sit tight, fool.
