Name one Iowa grad I've sucked up to!
Read your own posts: "can you prove
that Jorie threw out those manuscripts? etc" You are so obviously playing defense attorney for her. You are revelling in knowing these people. And what about Josh Clover, Iowa student picked by Jorie, weren't you going on about how 'hot' he is, trying to divert with your junior high 'crush' talk. You defend and name-drop like a self-appointed star defense attorney in a manner supercilious, sychophantic and...sticky. You don't suck up? You are saying you don't suck up? When don't
you suck up?
You see, Jim, this board is not about "I'm friends with these people and they're really cool, so leave them alone!" You think the fact that you are friends with these foets somehow excuses them because you are such a cool, interesting person. But you are only interesting in the context of Foetry. Otherwise, we would tell you to get lost. The sucking up is so very apparent. I can't believe you don't see it.
Now, I'm sure Jorie and her friends are saying, "Why doesn't Jimmy just shut up, he's making it worse for us. Stop giving them fuel, Jimmy. Shut up! We want Foetry.com to dry up and go away! Oh please let it go away." But you can't help yourself, Jimmy, because deep in your heart you know this place is where it's at.
You have a secret crush on Mallie. I know you do. Confess! And David Callan is a close second. I'm talking a real
crush, so real it would never make any public crush list.
As I took my 3 year old daughter home from school yesterday evening, walking through harvard yard, she was yelling, "I AM A PRINCESS!" at the top of her lungs. This, I imagine, is the mental place Jimmy and the Foets dwell. That might make a good band name. Jimmy and the Foets.
And the college girls go, "Doo doo doo doo doo" Janet and Jorie as back up singers. Put that in your musical. That number can come right after "I've Got A Crush On You" and "I Don't Care That You're Bad Because You're Beautiful."
