Resilient mother fucker

Category: Life

So, according to The Salty Droid, apparently I’m “one resilient mother fucker.” I don’t know if “resilient” is necessarily how I see myself. I can’t think of any one word that describes me, I’m too many contradictions.

I see myself as a dark, good spirited, depressed, melancholy, optimistic, charismatic, persistent, rarely content fellow.  I’m all of that at once, but I wouldn’t say I’m resilient. Resilience implies a lack of change, but after every success or disaster, I’m always a slightly different version of me.

Still, I love the press coverage and droid affection.

    The Droid has a deficiency when it comes to thinking up non-derogatory adjectives. 🙂 Not my specialty …

    Glad you read my post :: Thanks for the Link!

    Salty Droid: It’s okay, you’re programmed for the derogatory!

    Hmmm…I believe I concur.

    You are indeed one resilient motherfucker.

    On the one hand, I feel honored to be one of your first 100 followers. On the other hand, I feel as though you will now be forgetting the little people.

    And for all your other adjectives, I do think that “resilient mother fucker” probably fits in there somewhere.

    If you could be summed up in one word, it would be TOTALLY BORING, because that sums up anybody who can be summed up in one word. And, also, that’s two words, proving my case.

    I see you aren’t taking exception to “motherfucker”.

    Karen: How could I forget you? You’re the first!

    jadelennox: Should I?

    Well… I dunno. I take “resilient” to mean “flexible and adaptable” and in that regard, I’d say you’re the most resilient motherfucker I’ve ever met.

    Or resilient motherfuckin’ cyborg. You know, whichever. *smirk*

    Oh, hey and since you’re pretty much my only TAL link, I was wondering if you were familiar with the “This American Life Live” event that they’re doing? I think I’ll be watching it at my local theater. http://fathomevents.com/upcoming/details/This_American_Life.html

    And Will, you never post a link to a blog, website, etc. Will we ever see the man behind the mystery? I’m curious.

    Resilience is but one factor I think used because, I think we all feel, that things you’ve been thru would have kicked us in the proverbial nuts one too many times to come out with the tude and prose, you do.
    Resilience is an upmost compliment in my mind.

    “And Will, you never post a link to a blog, website, etc. Will we ever see the man behind the mystery? I’m curious.”

    As an International Man of Mystery, I have to state the obvious; if your life is in danger (from evildoers bent on world domination) and you are being held prisoner and/or about to be split in half on a table by a giant laser beam, Ormolu, you will get to meet me in person as I come to your rescue (please don’t ask why all the guards fire hundreds of machine gun rounds at us but always seem to miss).

    PS: Having your friends tie you up on a kitchen table and pointing a laser pointer at you, does not count.

    I’m really really Shy and never speak my mind. I don’t have a www/blog.
    😉
    (Actually “they” won’t let me have one. kindof smart if you think about it. Have you seen the trash I talk?)
