Exaggeration is Worse Than Murder.

Borges once wrote about Joyce's work that, "In Ulysses there are sentences, that are not inferior to Shakespeare or Sir Thomas Browne."

It has occured to me that what I most want out of life is for someone to say something like that about my work. And I believe that this is my best shot at it:

"In the Concept of Irony there are a sentence, that are not inferior to Borges."

Go on, say it.

Please.

Understatement is cooler than drool.

Jake--beyond a doubt that is the greatest statement ever made by any human being.

Justin, I would say that begging is beneath you. But I've been reading your blog. So I'll say this... This is by far the best blog I have ever read in my entire life, which is beginning to be quite a long life. And although blogs have not been around that long, this is going to go down in history as one of the finest. I mean, forget the fourth quadrant of Cleveland Heights, you might just take over the other three-fourths! Damn, Justin, you're good. Not only is your blog conceptually superior to other blogs, but I find the graphics to be nearly eye-candy. Also, I hear you are one HOT blogger. It's all good... eh, great... ah, Borgesastic!

... and now I must go do something to calm myself.

Sir Justin sounds a tad formal. Why not we all give you different terms of endearment?

Like sweetie. Or cupcake. Or darl.
