"I actually find it too boring to talk about! I said that to Jack Craver some years back, and what I got for it was an article about how egotistical I am for refusing to do an interview. But... whatever... I genuinely find the topic dull. I answered the same questions over and over again many years ago, and I'm not good at doing things that bore me."
Written just now, in email —without the link — to a journalist who wanted to interview and "profile" me. I read it out loud to Meade.
MEADE: "I'd drop that last sentence."
ME: "Why? Do you think it's asshole-ian?"
MEADE: "I just don't think it's necessary. You've already made the point that you think it's boring."
ME: "So you think it's asshole-ian?"
MEADE: "It's a little asshole-ian."
But of course, that's the thing about me not doing things that bore me. I write things and post/send them quickly. That email was already sent. But that's not to say the conversation with Meade was useless. It was intrinsically good, and then — a plus — bloggable. But I never blog conversations with Meade without submitting it for his approval.
So let's see if this sees the light of day.
