Currently reading: "Who's Been Sleeping in Your Head? The Secret World of Sexual Fantasies"
This book is a lot less prurient than advertisement in The Atlantic might lead one to believe... half-prude/half-Freud if you'll pardon the slant rhyme and none of it all that interesting. I'm not sure if I'll bother to finish.
I'm thinking about adding a "currently reading / just watched" sidebar for any regular to write about stuff they're reading or a movie or video they've seen. Any thoughts?
Convo of the Moment
So I enlisted Sarah in my self-defeating introspection about how self-absorbed I can be:
sarah: Well... I don't know if I can offer you any helpful advice... my own interpersonal relationships are all in the crapper these days. I am inclined to think we are ALL self-centered.
kirk: I have noted that w/ almost every story I hear, I formulate a counter story, and I've started to make a better internal-censor for that, that is a little harsher in judging relevance/general interest
sarah: I think that's a very reasonable approach
kirk: SELF CENTERED RIGHTS BABY
sarah: Hell yeah!
kirk: EGOCENTRIC POWER TO THE PEOPLE
sarah: You can't spell I without I!
And like I said right after this, digging your own story does not mean you don't dig other people's stories! It's a communication style mismatch as much as anything I think...
