Aliases, Libel, Speaking Ill of the Living

Mr. Devil made a good point the other night when he said that he never writes negatively of people on his blog, though he definitely goes into more personal details than I do. So I told him that I only speak ill of people who have done wrong by me or my friends. And if that's the case, they have it coming in my opinion. I'm a huge believer in karma, hence The Asshole entries and the obituaries. Yes, dating, living, working is hard; but that is no excuse to treat people poorly. Or to be just plain crazy. So if you're a raving lunatic, a pseudo-sociopath, or just an old-fashioned asshole who shits on people, and one of those people happens to be me, then, yeah, chances are you'll end up on my PC, whether on this site or in my book. As long as you treat me right though, you have nothing to worry about. I can assure you of that. Shit on me, however, and you'll get diarrheaed upon. That's all but guaranteed. I love that word; it's so descriptive.

And I'm definitely using aliases from now on, which I think I've been doing well with, but I can't be too sure. And, for the record, I'm not speaking of mere dating rituals, e.g. not calling, breaking up etc. That's all par for the course and doesn't even merit writing about or register high on my radar. You have to do something really grievous to inspire my wrath, if that's any consolation to anyone. And The Asshole is the only person in recent years who qualifies for such characterization. And he didn't even know what a blog was until his grandfather told him. Cool he would not be described as, so the chances of him reading this dribble are pretty slim. I suspect that had he read this, I would've been served with papers in yet another lawsuit already, so I think I'm out of the woods on that front. Though I don't remember signing a confidentialty agreement with him, so there. I'm going to quit wasting space on him. Make that another resolution.

Oh, yes, I thought of another resolution. I must go to bed earlier than 4 a.m. Someone in the medical profession told me today that the best way to do that is to shave off a half hour each night so that in one week you will have shaved off I guess 3 1/2 hours? Sounds a lot like the formula for weaning yourself off of pills without suffering from withdrawl. Not that I'd have firsthand knowledge of that or anything.
