Cool Stuff

I was looking for Craig's List, Barcelona (no dice) and I found this little hideaway for earnestly fevered writing:

5) Very oddly, six DIFFERENT individuals thought that I was a middle-aged black man, and based upon that assumption, chastised me harsh harsh harshly for openly and casually setting such a bad example for black young men who as it is "only have violent black males as role models." (Yes, Don P., hang your head in shame, you actually wrote that.) And five other quotes to that effect. I am a bad black male role model. I need to take a good long look in the mirror and ask myself how funny my little antics really are. Young men read that kind of ad and think that knife fighting is this fun and silly thing that can be traded for muffins. Bad dog. No biscuit.

* To this I respond: I am a white 22-year-old female. I do not understand how the exact characteristics of middle-aged, black and male where communicated through my ad, and after reading over it again, I will go out on that there limb and postulate that there were NO indications of any of these characteristics AT ALL and there are six individuals out there with some pretty serious projection problems. That?s right ? after deliberation I have come to the conclusion that IT?S NOT ME, IT?S YOU.

Wierd, personal, interesting writing here. I don't know what's going on at all. Investigating. A labyrinth.

(It might seem racy to the timid and young souls out there, so don't click on unless you're mature.)
