Wow, and all this time I've been reading Nietzsche, Descarte, Plato, Hume when all I really needed was to be studying this man.

No Hall Pass Required

After watching Mean Girls (I can't believe I did, but, yes, I did) with E tonight, and talking about it (we found the opening depiction of non-homeschooler's presumptions about home-educated kids accurately hysterical)-- discussing how gossip can be so painful and cause so much misunderstanding and hate, not to mention how one must be as shrewd as a viper and as gentle as a lamb-- I shared how R and I weren't relegated to any one single group in high school. We hung out a little bit with everyone. Now, confessedly, some of that was self-preservation in my case. I mean, I didn't really like Dee Dee's eyeliner, but I really did have to pee, so, I might have tweaked my opinion in favor of a bathroom stall and making it out alive. But, I did like Dee Dee, and I think she knew I didn't like her eyeliner, but she knew I liked her and that's why my arse was allowed back out of the girl's room in the same shape it went in.

E and I also talked about cliques and how they get formed and how it's o.k. to have a group of friends, but how it can also be limiting in knowing and understanding people who are different than yourself. The blogosphere is no different. Really. When I went to Wizbang's blog awards, I mostly saw blogs with which I am at least familiar. But, when I was reading Greg tonight, I followed the link to a different blog awards, and saw only a handful of blogs that I recognized (and even promoted in a previous post), and found a whole lot of new faces.

So, now that I no longer have to hand out lying compliments in order to get back to chemisty class with Mr. White, I politely ask you to visit these sites in order to broaden the horizon in your corner of the 'sphere. Now, will you please let me past?
