Name:Too cute for evil
Birthdate:Oct 15
Location:Toronto, Canada
Miss Ginny Tea is a silver-lining kind of girl, who looks for wonder in a mundane world and often manages to find it.

I type like a mad typing thing. I transcribe politicians for a living. I rant with a burning fiery passion. I often sound silly and inconsequential. Don't be fooled.

The Sweater Thing is not sexual. It is not a fetish. It is a charming quirk. *nods*

rule #1: Already occupied men are Off Limits.
rule #2: No alcohol-influenced communications.
rule #3 (no snickering!): What La Ysabête wants, La Ysabête gets.
rule #3a: Girlsnuggles for the win!
rule #4: Never neglect the couch.

My five-year mission is to seek out new worlds and make them cuter.

Does the sun ask itself, “Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?” No, it burns and it shines. Does the sun ask itself, “What does the moon think of me? How does Mars feel about me today?” No it burns, it shines. Does the sun ask itself, “Am I as big as other suns in other galaxies?” No, it burns, it shines.

From Our Blood

You know, just between you and me, I sometimes worry that there is a naïve view loose out there — most students come to linguistics believing it, and there appear to be some professional linguists who regard it as central and explanatory — that language has something to do with purposes of efficiently conveying information from a speaker to a hearer. What a load of nonsense. I'm sorry, I don't want to sound cynical and jaded, but language is not for informing. Language is for accusing, adumbrating, attacking, attracting, blustering, bossing, bullying, burbling, challenging, concealing, confusing, deceiving, defending, defocusing, deluding, denying, detracting, discomfiting, discouraging, dissembling, distracting, embarassing, embellishing, encouraging, enticing, evading, flattering, hinting, humiliating, insulting, interrogating, intimidating, inveigling, muddling, musing, needling, obfuscating, obscuring, persuading, protecting, rebutting, retorting, ridiculing, scaring, seducing, stroking, wondering, … Oh, you fools who think languages are vehicles for permitting a person who is aware of some fact to convey it clearly and accurately to some other person. You simply have no idea.

Proposal for a Realistic Existentialism

It all comes in the package
Unlike a commodity
I'm me… unique
And you don't have to like me

I'm serious, everything I do
Is an assertion of what I am
And if I bewilder you
It's because I vary

Nevertheless, I'm a gift
Offered with no conditions
To you. Since I damn well exist
You do too

-- Milton Acorn
