Lost Time

I just spent about two hours on a post that I wound up deleting because it was just too inflammatory and politically insensitive. I tried to tone it down, but it just didn't work.
What a pain in the neck.

So you go read the story.
And remain calm.
It really can't be that stupid at university.
Can it?

I am crushed mr rdr.

I doubt it would have been too inflammatory, but I bow to your superior judgment. Nothing coming out of Harvard surprises me anymore.

spd rdr said...

Me neither. But I went overboard.
Discretion is advised.

I'm crushed, and now wildly curious. I suggest you post a draft of it with the legend "For Discussion Purposes Only," and we'll promise not to make copies of it, link to it or discuss it outside this "room."

Care to "privately" distribute that post? Off the record of course.

Cassandra said...

Even better spd - post a copy with strikeouts through the whole thing and LOTS of exclamation points!!!!!!!! I've been laughing at myself lately with all the bolding and italics - I need to get a life.

Yes, I'm teasing you a bit :) It always makes me laugh when someone goes ballistic and does that - someday I will lose my temper and do it. Maybe the day my head finally explodes and I finally quit.

Alas, it's gone forever! But you can pretty much figure it out. It wasn't flattering.

portia said...

There are names for people like you. We'll start with your basic "tease."

Cassandra said...

He really is, isn't he Portia?

Shameful, really. I think he enjoys it.

portia said...

But he's met his match or two hasn't he, Cass?

spd rdr said...

Christ.
What did I ever do to deserve you two?

portia said...

Blame it on a beguiling conflux of luck and karma. The gods are smiling, spd, don't blow it this go 'round or you'll come back as an insect. I know...you can think of worse things:)

Christ.What did I ever do to deserve you two?

Believe me, I haven't the slightest idea. Yes... that *is* every Leo's worst nightmare, isn't it?. To be surrounded by women who adore him.

Oooh. And they get along, too :)

My heart just *bleeds* for you, mr rdr.

Heh...

spd rdr said...

One of these days, Alices....

portia said...

And one of these nights, Ralphie "...to the moon."

Sh*t, spd, I think we're dating ourselves now with quotes from The Honeymooners...on top of that, KJ doesn't even know who Lauren "you know how to whistle, don't you " Bacall is. How is that possible?

Do over.

Cassandra said...

Zoom, boom...

Or to quote another of my favorites, "My God, the pleasure I still get from tormenting you..."

portia said...

Oh, and yes they do, Cass:)
