probobly the best description of the monks insult contests i have ever heard:
Devon: what the hell is going on? It's like two vagrants vomited on a coffee shop poet
As anyone who has dealt with me can tell you, i have a terrible memory. That fact coupled with the fact that i spend most of my time on E2 between the hours of 10pm-4am means that i may have no idea what your messaging me about. Please give context, because i'll be damned if i know what i said to you at 3am this morning...
i'm by all my associates account a bear, i sleep a lot, i eat a lot, and i don't move fast or get angry unless i have to...

i hate computers, lets make that clear, i hate these magic grey toasters.. i grew up primarily in rural virginia, we had a tv with 2 channels. We turned the knob with a pair of pliers, and until about age 10 that was the extent of my high technology interaction. i am not a computer person.
Anything else i'm forgetting probably has to do more with personality which you should just glean from my writing, think blunt, that's the way i operate.

the drunkmonks are an association of gentleman (open to ladies but none particularly seem to want to join). Who like to mouth off lots of lofty and fancy ideas. But in truth, the organization is merely an umbrella to cover our behavior with some sort of illusion of moving forward and accomplishing something. That and a branch of the cayenne addicts international support group; "staying clean and cool together" repeat after me "not everything needs to be spicy and delicious, i will not put cayenne on everything"......God i'm a dirty liar....there isn't a food product in creation that wouldn't benefit from a little cayenne.
This is harder than it looks.
Things that may or may not be of interest to you:
Since this list seems to be growing i thought it would be funny to point out that i am in one way or another directly responsible for the following people being here. Be that for good or ill....consider this also my list of noders i've met.

imhran who is to busy finding himself to write anything on here
intravenousants gave this, my favorite little corner of the internet, a chance and then forgot all about it because that's what she does, she ignores my advice as a matter of habit and despite being a writer refuses to use this site as a resource

"I know this from my own experience. In my years of communicating concepts and conducting training, I have run into them again and again. All I can do is attempt to show them that the only thing to seek is the true self within. Their personal answers are to be found there and there alone. I communicate that the basics of spirituality are self-responsibility and self-actualization. But most of the true believers just tell me that i'm not spiritual and go looking for someone who will give them the dogma and structure they desire.
Never underestimate the potential danger of these people. They can easily be molded into fanatics who will gladly work and die for their holy cause. It is a substitute for their lost faith in themselves and offers them as a substitute for individual hope. The moral majority is made up of true believers. All cults are composed of true believers. You'll find them in politics, churches, businesses, and social cause groups. they are the fanatics in these organizations. " -the battle for your mind
