Revivalism

Summary of last few...er...months:


Things I have done:

- I got into a nasty-ass debate (or nasty ass-debate) with Simon over this guy's book, The Skeptical Environmentalist. He is pro-alarmist attitudes, I am anti.
- I attempted to start a paper journal where I name all my friends after historical or fictional characters they remind me of. Simon is Trotsky, Adam is Catullus, Erin is Lesbia.
- I have achieved a certain amount of peace of mind for the first time in a while, it's a pity it has to end in September.
- I told Adam about my story idea, and he said he liked it. I think I'm going to type out all my notes on the computer now so I can start writing during the school year (I didn't study ahead for nothing, you know).
- I met my furture roommate. She is cool, but she looks a tad like Meaghan, this chick who resides in the buried wastelands of Simon's memory. I think it would be really ironic if they started dating, if they should meet.


Things I have NOT done:

- I have officially not been in hopeless love in approximately 5 months. This is something of a record, and I am still thinking of appropriate ways to celebrate.
- I have not dressed like a goth and sat in coffee shops writing depressing poetry. I know I'm procrastinating, but I think I will wait until the weather cools down.
- I have not yet avenged the cold-blooded theft of my bike. I am so upset.
- I have not yet saved the world from it's manifold problems. Another year wasted.

I borrowed the Skeptical Environmentalist from the library but never finished it, but I mean to give a second try soon.

I am pro muck-raking facts but pretty much anti muck-raking attitude. And the way he went on about the Litany induced much teeth grinding. It's interesting that he hasn't been in the media recently with The Inconvenient Truth as the summer blockbuster and everything. Or better yet, why talk radio hasn't managed to get him on to refute the pinko femninazi hippies.

First retrospect, then you and Meaghan! The wastelands of Simon's memory is proving to be quite the pot-boiler.

Me? I do not reside in Simon's wasteland. In a way, you could say that he resides in mine. But yes, it is quite the pot-boiler. It's a wonder he hasn't been reduced to a charred husk of flesh yet. Maybe next time.

And yes, I noticed that he has not emerged in the face of An Inconvenient Truth (Lomborg, not Simon). I'm digging into this bit further for the sake of arguing with Simon, so I shall eventually find out why. If all else fails, I may even write to his publisher, who knows.

I probably ought to see it too.
