Marcel, be sure you want what you ask for...
My friend Marcel is giving me a hard time because I haven’t mentioned a Brazilian jiu jitsu/grappling message board that he and I both post on. It honestly hasn’t been a deliberate oversight, so before I forget, it is at http://www.mmaportal.com/idealbb. Marcel posts there as Letmbleed (from a Tori Amos song, I think). I post as Valhalla (Viking heaven; also a brand of BJJ gi).
The thing is, everybody on that message board is very un-PC. The Jews make fun of the Cubans, the Cubans make fun of the women, the women make fun of the Asians, the Asians make fun of the Irish Americans. There’s also lots of bad language and so on and so forth. So enter at your own risk.
I’m glad I remembered to write about this, because it gives me a chance to talk about Marcel. He is one of those people who derives pleasure out of being unhappy. And I am certain he would agree with that assessment. For instance, when he fell in love with a great woman and they decided to get married, it pissed him off because that was a good thing that made him happy. On the other hand, when people in his daily life do stupid things like misuse the English language, he gets to be angry about it and crush them with invective and righteous indignation. Not even perpetuating stereotypes about Jews on mmaportal.com gives him more satisfaction.
So anyway, Marcel, here’s the shout out. Unfortunately for you, I can use the English language as well as you can, which means you’ll have to find some other way to retaliate.
PS: I’m glad we’re friends!
BTW, I'll be posting more about my trip through Kansas and eastern Colorado and will be backdating it, just to be completely confusing. So when you check back, look for a post that's dated July 12, which will be below this one on the screen.
