Yeah sorry, I've been up dealing with a work crisis for the past 48 hours or so - so I'm probably suffering from sleep deprivation by now...

This thread is too much for me....

but Sinny, do you use instagram? If so, look up BrandonWoelfel; he's my soothing picture therapy. Sometimes there is glitter but always amazing colors. I think you'd be into it.

Yeah I am a strange and bizarre little man who between bouts on insanity and drunkenness (both of which occur frequently) often veers radically into directions most people probably do not and should not wish to follow.

But on the bright side - I've gotten exceedingly good at apologies, why I bet I am at least in the top 10 apologizers world wide - don't mistake me, I'm not boasting, I've just had a lot more practice than most people :P

Indeed, fortunately I've found a way to parlay that into a career (granted with a slight embellishment of the term) - you see I took my Grandfather's advice when he said "If you are good at something, never do it for free" (unfortunately, I shan't be earning much money from my endeavors here any time soon).

:P

raworahi,

I believe your career problem is that you veered slightly off course. There is little or no money to be found in making even the best apologies. But a lucrative career can be found in being an apologist. In business, government/politics and in working for religious organizations being a convincing or even just a brazen and shameless apologist can earn respect, status and most importantly riches. Your "sincerity" will be a real asset.

Well, I make enough to get by, but you are correct of course - the problem with that is that I prefer my privacy and if an apologist isn't getting the message out and being "out in front" of an issue, he is similarly not likely to progress far.

So instead, I chose a path of service - it may not pay much but it takes me to interesting places, introduces me to interesting people and provides ample opportunities and variety in the sorts of apologies I must make.

It may be less glamorous, less well paid, and less respectable than a streetwalker, but at least I get to lie awake in the middle of the night and envy their integrity.

It sounds as though you made a wise and admirable career choice but I hope that you are not implying that street-walking and more upscale forms of the oldest profession are not also careers of service.

As Thucydides wrote in the Melian Dialogues:

"The strong do what they can, and the weak suffer what they must."

Not in the least - I was merely speaking that within the scope of service careers...

Those careers tend to be more glamorous, better paid, more respected and permit them a greater amount of personal integrity, than my own.

Sorry you had to deal with a work crisis and with little sleep, raworahi. Oh, and pretty horrible day(s) too, awww, sorry.
I knew you intended to be silly, but it was starting to get pretty weird, even for me, which is hard to do lol. I was mostly just giving you a hard time though.
Always glad to help out with glitter, you're welcome :).
