What I was thinking, is like a New Year’s Resolution

“is to stop getting caught up in my own thoughts, cause I’m like way too introspective, I think … but what if not thinking turns me into this really shallow person?  I better rethink this becoming less introspective thing.”  (via Bennett)

  • Hmmm…thinking about thinking. Doesn’t get much more meta than that.

    But just in case anyone’s paying attention, no amount of thinking or not thinking or thinking about thinking or even thinking about thinking about something (even thinking!) makes one more or less shallow.

    Only actions count. Shallow is as shallow does.

    I was watching a re-run of Fraiser the other night, and a scene that took place in a Middle America diner had Kelsey Gramer’s character walk up to a local patron suggesting that they have a cup of coffee together and chat. Fraiser said, “I’m taking a cross-country expedition, you see, and I want to get a feel for what is on the average American’s mind.” The man replied by saying: “Oh, I see. You’re some rich city slicker. You come to this country diner, you see me sitting here, you see that I’m wearing shabby clothes, and you automatically think that I’m some sort of farmer or something. Well, fyi, I do happen to be a farmer, but I’m also a deeply complicated, nuanced, passionate individual, and it will take a lot more than a cup of coffee to get inside here (points to his heart).”

    I guess what I’m trying to say is…you can never be shallow.

  • By the way, it has been brought to my attention that some people took my post a little too seriously. So even though the rule is “never ’splain,” here it is:

    Bennet (whoever he is–some FoE who appears in this blog from time to time) is far too intelligent to actually make as shallow a remark such as the one credited to him herewith (I mean, make it un-ironically that is).

    Yes, I get it. Me too. When I play the finger-wagging moral scold, I’m just having fun, too.


    Commenting on my own comment: NOW who’s a little bit meta? (And a little bit rock and roll).
