The next week and a bit, I am on vacation. Well, vacation a la Gayle, which means I will be working on various journal related matters, editing a paper to be submitted for publication, and reading about Foucault and the law for my professor. Also, I need to GET ON IT, because I have a half marathon in two months. And the running books are saying I should be running 6 days a week, but I run to enrich my life, not take over my life, so, no. But still, I would like to feel prepared, it is in fact my first race.
There is a running/body issues post that has started rattling around in my brain, but you know? In honor of my vacation, I don't want to come up with blog posts. And I intend to try to NOT get so stabby-mad that I have to write a blog post lest I hurt a person. So! Here is where you, my wonderful readers, come in!
What would you like me to write about the next nine-ish days? Books? Movies? Do you want me to tell stories? Do you want politics or law or theory? What do you want to see here at Unnatural Forces? I hand this over to you, Readers. Symbolically! Because I may not be able to hand it over to you, actually - I haven't the faintest how many people will leave suggestions, or whether I can write on your suggestion competently, or whether I feel I have anything to add to a topic. Like, I can tell you right off I am not going to write about the "mosque" (it's a fucking community center, people)-near-Ground-Zero issue. Why? Well, because lots of better, smarter people have written on this, and also, three words: The First Amendment. Here's another three words: FUCK OFF, BIGOTS. And Gayle is done.
I'll pick three topics suggested to me here or in the Twitterverse, and I will write about them over the next week and a half (insh'allah). And then we'll be back to regularly scheduled programming, which means this again becomes a tyrannical despotism where I will subject people to long-winded stories that have no relevance to anything at all (and also to Nicholas Sparks; I am an especially tyrannical tyrant, I tell you).
IN ADDITION, I realized today that this blog has been in existence for over 6 months now! Yes! Happy half-birthday to us! Seems a fitting time to celebrate by being a lazy motherfucker and have other people come up with topics for me, no?
Alright, so, here we go: what am I writing about? I await with baited breath.
