Just a selfish Bastard
by doyce at 02:08 AM on October 30, 2002
Heya. Just joined Bad Sam. Thought I'd say hi. I don't have much to say at the moment since it's still snowing outside and I've got a long drive tomorrow, but I thought I should wave my hand in the air and make a few things clear.
Point the First-and-Only: I'm a selfish bastard, just like the title says. I love BadSam and I hope that whatever I contribute here helps MG achieve whatever digital godhood is forthcoming but I'm not doing it for him -- it's all about me finding a place to bitch even more vehemently about my job, my souless jackass coworkers, my septegenarian bosses, and whatever else tickles my fancy.
Yes, I have a website. Generally, I write whatever I feel like writing.
But not always. You probably have a website too, so you know why.
For instance, if I'm talking about my sister-in-law whose son has been living with us for three years (at his request), the best I can normally do for You-the-Reader is state the facts and let you draw your own conclusions.
But it's so much faster for me to just tell you "she ruined the first nine years of her kid's life, and he's going to spend the next nine-plus years overcoming that, and I don't know if I can help him half the time, even though I keep trying."
I need that. In between the polite-but-personal blogging and lawn-care anecdotes and NaNoWriMo and the job and the family, I need me some BadSam -- always have. Just like you.
I don't have much to say right at the moment.
I imagine that will change.
I'll see you then.
Dude, you too?

Crap! I think this goes against mg's theory that this is a family website.

I forgot another fringe benefit: seeing that lil' picture of myself next to everything I post. That's dead sexy. :|
Family website: don't think that will happen til MG posts Bette Midler naked. That's really where the 11 to 15 female demographic is at these days.

You notice how on most other group weblogs they don't post pictures? That's because none could compare with the pure sexitude of the bad sam staff. If we all got together and made a baby, it'd rule the world.

So, Ive been told about this website from a friend of mine- says it a liberating blog from lots of amusing people. So I thought I'd add my share.
Doesnt it just piss you off when you know how rotten some people are yet they just run around with a dumb ass I'm-better-than-you grin all the time? The people that never even did anything to you, but just by knowing them, you feel like a worse person already??? Yes, they did do something to us. They are making the world worse jsut by being in it, and its so much more frustrating than it need be because its not usually bad people- just potentially good people tooting their own horns and living for themselves without using that potential. What if everyone had that kind of attitude?? imagine how much better the world would be without.
For instance, these are the most selfish people I know (and no, they dont know they are making the blog - they are too busy sitting around thinking about how perfect they are): Jon McDermott(chicago), Chip Keller (sandusky) Stacey Kaswalski (columbus).
The most maddening part is you cant get through to these people. its only the ones that dont really need to listen that do. So, I look at them and it reminds me not to be like them and I guess thats why they are here. That and to marry trophy wives and rich old men and go on to do nothing good for the world (then again, in their minds, they are all the good that the world needs!)
