Nov 14, 2001: What the Bloody Hell?

WARNING: narcissism ahead

You know, just about every blog author links to his Amazon wish list, as if people really cared enough to purchase them a gift.

What the bloody hell, why not me? After all, I certainly have had plenty of reasons to receive gifts, both celebratory and sympathetic. I had a tough year. I almost died a few times. I've incurred all sorts of good will lately. I got married. Don't any of those make me deserving of generosity from strangers?

But no siree, you don't see me pulling this self-centered crap. Nope, I'm just too decent and anti-narcissistic to expect you to care about what I want. That's good old Lou, always worrying about other people, never considering his own needs...
