Allow Me to Introduce… (pt.2)

Giving Orlando an introduction would be easier if s/he weren’t so socially awkward. “It can’t be that difficult,” you might be saying. Well, think again. The last time we went to a party together, it went down something like this…* This is my friend Orla– Hi, I’m very interested in heteroglossia and the dialogization ofContinue reading “Allow Me to Introduce… (pt.2)”

Orlando and I Reconcile Over Procrastination

Otherwise known as… A Quasi Logic-Based Attempt to Regain Nominal Appreciation for Orlando, the Thesis That Would Neither Vanish Nor Transmogrify into Something Slightly More Fantastic Than a Million Dollars, Through Misguided Appropriation of Flawed Logic, Outmoded Analogies, Barely Applicable Similes, and Wholly Metaphysical Conceits.

How do I feel about thee, thesis mine?(To speak my truest feelings were not meet.)Oh let me see that Times New RomanContinue reading “How do I feel about thee, thesis mine?”
