Get, Got, Gotten.


I hear desperate cries for help
But you know I couldn’t care any less
When our allies came to us for help
We left them stranded with the rest
And when our foes presented a challenge
We put them all to the test
They slaughtered two hundred and sixty men
And carelessly forgot about the rest
The enemy summoned his courage
But courage just simply wasn’t there
Courage was a pathetic coward
Sobbing in his rocking chair
He had made himself a shadow
And inside it he dug little a hole
And when the sun and stars had given up
That is where they all would go
The survivors rose up out of grave
Covered in mud and grime
They came at us by the seven’s
We threw out thirty at a time
All of they went down at once
Biting off the forks of their defeat
And until next year comes around
This is the song that Winter sings.

Apparently we are [sighs dramatically].  What was the purpose of the question "Are you a nerd?"  And if that was to get an answer, what kind of answer were you anticipating?  Because when one asks a question, in this atmosphere, it is because they want to find out something, but do not want to ask directly, and so ask a sideways question with which to confirm or convey or uncomfirm what they were wondering in the first place.  I am wanting to know what that wondering was?

HAHA!  Well, I'm serious, if your definition of a nerd is glasses and straight clothes and matching pigtail ribbons and shiny black shoes, that's not me.  If your definition is someone who wears skirts and flip-flops and has a large family and who gets straight A's and who hangs out with all the other valedictorian-to-bees at the lunch table, then, yeah, that's me.  If your definition is someone who doesn't do squat with their homework, goes home and plays computer games all day, but is a virtual Halo genius, then, no, that's my brother.

"jill, are you hungry?" "Well that depends on your definition of hungry." "well did you eat?" "That depends on your definition of eating." "So are you going to answer my question or not?" "Hmmm... now what do you mean by answering your question?" "Now I'm getting angry!" "Hmm.. define angry...."
