While I drink my spiced chai tea latte  
A juggernaut, yeah, that's a great big machine
from Star Wars -- or maybe a truck
Avatars are who you are in a game
and karma, we all know, is luck.

Kali's a demon; Dan Simmons should know
He went to Calcutta one year
and Soma's a drug out of Huxley. It's so
very great how inventive they were!


Sparked by some of the conversation on the What is Cultural Appropriation thread. And oddly not entirely consistent with what I've said about it. Apparently my writing brain doesn't entirely agree with my analyst brain.

ETA: I'm very sorry to do this but I'm disabling comments for now. turning off email notification on this thread and won't be checking  back on it for several days.   I  meant to disable comments, but then realized that would hide the comments that were already made, which isn't my intent at all.

This is all me and my silly head -- I need to work on a paper and won't if I keep wondering if people have said anything here.  So I  need to forbid myself lj till the paper's done.

I've also talked to several linguist/writers who say that the increasd sensitivity to language really helps with writing, so that's not just me either...

I'd be delighted if you add me! Only, do be patient with me because I am currently intimidated by my friends list and thus haven't been adding people back unless I already know them or their work -- and I think I have missed some of those. Sometime in the next month or so I'll be going through it and getting up to date. I hope.

Hooray! I'm not hugely concerned about whether or not anyone has time or inclination to read my Deathless Internet Prose, so please don't worry about adding me back or not. I will be cheerfully unoffended either way.
