I fully intend to wear it around my neck, on a gold chain.
I am a weird recluse only here for sex.

8. This is not a chat room, your blog or an AIM window. Either participate and further the discussion in a meaningful way or stay out. If all you can provide is a constant stream of meaningless short replies of sexual innuendos and other crap then you simply do not need to be here. This rule is not absolute as there is a time for such replies every now and then, however if this is all you do you are going to have problems.

GTFOH - The MayorofRockNRoll is funnier and often more incisive than a lot of people on this board. I'll admit that the post you quote isn't one of his better efforts, though.

Edit: fer grammer.

In my rolodex, I'll file all my dozen or so friends and associates, and use the rest of it to file pictures of boats or other things I might like to purchase.

other purchases may include a cat, whom I have no intention of speaking to.

It makes total and complete sense to me that No Trend were from Ashton, Maryland.

I think you almost have to have grown up near an uber-waspy place like DC to understand the Rolex gesture. I've said this a zillion times before, but there was a huge correlation between parental income and education level and participation in the scene.

When you sit across the dinner table for 18 years from some varietal of humanities PhD and absorb his discourse it's easy to astonish the Maryland parochials. At first. At some point it all regresses towards the mean, but back then we felt duped and angry. Up close, punk seemed like a costly, feckless lifestyle brand unsuited to all but the most well-insured Miss Porter's brats. Maybe you don't need to finish college or acquire some practical, marketable skill.

Maybe brandishing a Rolex is kind of an asshole move, but no more so than spouting politics so imperious and extreme the only actions it points to are further curating your punk identity and political disengagement via vaudevillian pseudo-engagement. At least the Rolex is honest in its intentions.

I don't know how she feels about him.
But it would be nice if she'd show a little enthusiasm for a change.

Enthusiasm for him? But you don't even know that she's into him!

Sorry, tocharian, I just always admired your tenacity around here, and your intelligence, even when I don't agree with you. I also know you are a decent person. But you don't need me to defend you with my piggish comments. I just love smart women with attitudes and say it loud sometimes. I didn't mean to embarrass you, or insult you.

For the record she does not have a crush on me.
