Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

The open e-mail project

gmail overload

I had an epiphany while under the influence, but instead of thinking twice before including it here, I figured what the hell.

Ever had a great e-mail conversation and thought it was a crying shame that no one else would get the benefit of the astonishing insights, clever bon mots, and various and sundry flashes of unbridled brilliance contained therein?

I welcome anyone who's interested to start an e-mail dialogue with me, on any subject we can both agree on. I'm easy. Here are some of my faves:

Pop/rock: In college, I got an A in rock music. "Nuff said.

Arts and Letters: I'm in favor of them.

Religion and Politics: I have problems with them, but like to blab about them anyway.

Mental health issues: psychology, psychiatry, shrinks, your diagnosis, mine, and everyone else's.

Assholes. Fill in the blanks.

These are just a few of the many topics I'd love to explore mano a mano. Here's some options:

A. Just do the vanilla private rambling e-mail thing.

B. If anything of blinding brilliance develops, I could take our precious pearls of wisdom, edit them, and post them here as a scintillating, titillating dialogue--with your permission, of course.

C. Use this as a jumping off point for future posts (giving credit where credit--and links--are due, natch).

D. Or something.

Shades of the Algonquin Roundtable!

If anyone is interested, etc. me etc etc....

Thank you and goodnight.

Whether you're interested or not, please feel free to post miscellaneous comments here. I'm a comment whore.

And another thing:

Lest anyone think I am an obsessive e-mail psycho-stalker:

I have several cool blogging/e-mail pals already. But esp since the people who generally comment here are intelligent, insightful, etc. etc., I thought it might be nice to connect with them (you) as well.

As you are probably aware, I am extremely terrifyingly brilliant. Because of this, I would like to participate. Interestingly enough, I am working on a report for school on veganism. How is that as a subject?

What you say is certainly true--which is why we are already e-mail pals from way back. I'll write and we can talk topics.

And thanks for inspiring the latest stalking post above. Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
