i totally just spelled “smart” as “smark” the first time around. I’m going to pretend that that is a new way to say “snarky smart!” And no one can stop me. Come on, all together now – SMARK!
Anyhow. So remember when we used to be smart? I’m reading (okay, so wordpress doesn’t recognize key-strokes. lame.) The Elegance of the Hedgehog (linked, but not to Amazon*). It contains a lot of psycho-literary theory and philosophy, and I’ve found myself taking notes in a book… something I haven’t done in like… well, since I took my last English class in undergrad.
It has also allowed me to see that I can’t think as critically as I used to – which is depressing. Or maybe not. A lot of the book concerns intellectualism, and what qualifies you as a worthwhile intellectual versus a not-worthwhile intellectual. (my answer: elegantly disheveled hair). It got me thinking, I’m going to see if I still understand some of the old papers I wrote for classes in college. Oh, God. What have I started?
… I was going to post some key quotes here. But I’ve changed my mind. This post is now going to be about this cat catching a bat:
HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THIS CAT:
You have been sufficiently distracted. I SAY GOOD DAY.
