You're my hero as long as I keep my standards low

Sometimes I tell people Twinkies and tampons are chemically the same and only the mixture is different, then I pretend to pull a string out of my mouth. Sometimes I "explain" where the strawberry Zingers come from ...

I guess I'll be a tourist dressed for the desert (with a good hat, a camera and a Camelbak!), especially while I'm volunteering.

I'm kooky enough and don't need some superficial costume (and fucking heat stroke) to be myself. Then again, I found the people who cared the most about this shit, or "enforcing" some petty rules generally were the most boring and useless.

Speaking of rules, I'm all for the rules and guidelines that keep us alive and happy (like ride your bike the right way down the street with lights at night or bring an ocean of water to the desert or treat people well) but the arbitrary ones I can do without.

How does one "properly" burn? I imagine there are about 50,000 answers to that and they're all wrong and right.

IMHO, the proper burn, is the one that makes you happy.
no outside dialog necessary.

ME:
is this fun?
Myself:
yes, super fun!
I:
good, we're doing it right.


*random chatter from others, indicating dissatisfaction with what we're doing, how we're doing it, or with whom*

huh? sorry, can't hear you with sunglasses on.

*pours kook aid, offers to malcontents*

here, drink this, it'll make me happier, and, you won't care.

"Savannah" I like it . . . it makes us sound forward-thinking, and not at all like trailblazing, professional-level procrastinors.

Maybe "doing it wrong" is TRYING to "do it right"...

Just a thought...

It reminds me of the term, "SPHINCTER POLICE" which is used toward those self-appointed hall monitors, door stop user prevention teams and the infamous scrub nurse insisting on an abdominal xray of a surgical patient because the Bookwalter Post was not present in the final instrument count.

The camps of death barbie are hardy and bold
And quite unaccustomed to fear,
But the bravest of all was a man I am told
Named viking, and hero ygmir.


'nuff said
