Antisocial January

We have reached the point in the winter where I don’t want to deal with anyone. Going to work is just about all the socializing I can handle. After work all I want to do is come home, slide into something flannel, and read a book. Occasionally, I will shake things up by playing WordTwist while listening to rock and roll music.

Random aside that is not germane to the topic at hand — sometimes I wish that I Will Dare had a style guide and some sort of copy editing Nazi to make sure that I followed that style. For instance, is Rock and Roll upper or lower case? It’s probably just a question of style. However, I Will Dare doesn’t have any style and it’s so inconsistent that any style would be pointless. So if you’re wondering what to get me for my birthday I want a style guide and a copy editor to go with it. Okay? Also that one gravy boat.

I am perfectly content with this antisocial behavior and have decided that unlike every other year of my life I will not feel guilty about that. 2009 is the year of hermits declaring their rights and proclaiming a guilt-free existence. You heard it here first.

    The need to socialize is probably indicative of an insecurity with being alone. The want to socialize occasionally is, well, normal.

    And you’ve reminded me of my mission for 2009: To get everyone to stop using the term “Nazi” in regards to focusing on grammatical details and replace it with the term “terrorist” just to fuck with people. Then we’ll all fall back on “curmudgeon” and be done with it.
