Reichmarshall Muse

"Nature abhors a vacuum," the Muse said. "You abhor flat surfaces without shit piled on them."

"It's not shit," I said, adding another envelope to the stack on the small table beside my chair. "It's clutter. There's a difference. "

"Clutter won't crush you to death if it falls over on top of you. You're going to end up in News of the Weird, I swear you are."

"My filing system may not quite be up to Third Reich standards, but I can find everything I'm looking for, thank you very much. I went to college, I know how to keep track of paperwork."

She put her arms above her head and stretched. "Well, you know what Hermann Goering said about education. 'Education is dangerous--every educated person is a future enemy.'"

I shook my head. "How do you know this stuff off the top of your head? You're a walking book of factoids."

She shrugged. "It's either know things like that or know who won the last American Idol. I personally think this is probably a little more interesting and important, and maybe the world wouldn't be quite so fucked up if more people thought that way."

"It's a mystery to me why people find you so insufferable."

She crinkled her nose. "I know. What's with them, anyway?"

So is it a bad thing to know who won the lat American Idol and be a plethora of bookish knowledge?

Actually, my apartment was quite clean while you were here, other than my bookshelf, which is mostly hopeless (I really need another for the overspill, but what's a boy to do?).

And yes, 4:00. I did get some restful sleep for a change, although I remember dreaming about World War II and cattle cars, so obviously I shouldn't make references to Nazis right before I'm going to bed.

Well, I haven't seen your clutter, but you've seen mine. Hopefully you're not much worse than I am!

Just wanted to pop by and say how much I love your Muse entries.

They tend to stick out on my flist.

I feel a bit of a bastard for not posting any for a while. I didn't really think that maybe folks were looking forward to them.

That'll teach me.

Nice to see you, by the way.

Don't believe I've ever been called "duck" before.

I rather like it ;)

Think On It
