katie and i, during a discussion on stereotypes and ethnicity:

kt: so, obviously, it's the reason you're an accountant.

m: well, yes. of course. wait. doesn't that mean i should only be half an accountant?

kt: actually, i think you are half an accountant. the other half is a punk.

After I read that quote, I could not let go of the image of a tiny Sid Vicious living inside your head.

r - so is that a three letter abbreviation of a five letter word?

tb - that sounds like a new banner in the making.

it's just something kids write on their xanga pages, along with spelling things like "kewl" and w00t.

No no no no no! Sid Vicious was not a punk. Him and the rest of those no-talent hacks were too inebriated.to make punk music or realize that punk rock wasn't about wearing leather and writing 30 second songs about how pissed off you are.

Now, a little Joe Strummer living inside her head, that would be a mighty fine compliment.
