Gas Guy Mafia

3:30 this morning I wrote a beautiful post about how I didn't particularly care for the Gas Guy. When I went to fix a typo, I accidentally deleted the whole thing. I was tired and not thinking clearly. Now I have reached the obvious conclusion that Jeremy Swizzlestick controls the blogosphere.

One of my posts just got lost as well. Some service must have gone down.

Maybe, I'll attempt to post it again later, once I'm able to finally dislodge my mouse out of the sheet rock wall in my office.

Until then, I'm bound and determined to piss and moan about it. Don't anyone try to stop me.

Katherine - Was your post based on the fact that the G. Guy has come out from behind his blanket and made a confessional, or have you not been filled up with delight all along?

I just never really cared for his stuff. Most what I read seemed to heavy-handed and really judgmental. It all had the air of "Grad Student pursuing Master of Fine Arts In Creative Writing" about it. You know...the stuff that crops up in campus Literary Magazines. Some people groove on that style of writing. I'm more for stepping away from the Thesauras.

sorry...'too heavy-handed'.

My brain is outthinking my typing.

It is too bad this is gone. I'd have loved to have linked it.

Tell me about it. It was good 3:30 in the morning reactionary drivel! I can't believe I lost it, and have not the ability to recreate its pre-dawn perfection.

I liked reading him, but he always seemed a little too academic.

True story: UNC Wilmington was the only grad school I applied to in 1998 when I graduated from MTSU and briefly toyed with the idea of a MFA in Creative Writing.

That's where they filmed "Dawson's Creek".

Anyway, I was rejected.

Katherine, I share your "eh" feelings for Gas Guy. I only started reading him recently (say, a month ago) and it felt too heavy-handed to be real. I always suspected he was a guy writing character exercises, but I never suspected that he wasn't even in Tennessee.
