Ten Foolish Things

Ten foolish things anyone can do:
10 Vote Republican hoping this will precipitate the inevitable next stage in the collapse of Capitalism
9 Lose your virginity to a sex columnist
8 Write a pisser of a dissertation on Henry ("Scoop")Jackson Mac Low & expect to get it published by Calvin Coolidge Archibald Mac Leish
7 Lose your job after blogging about blow job given to ungrateful boss
6 Convert to Catholicism and lie at your first confession
5 Pretend you like Joan Didion's books
4 Join a woman's only pyramid scheme and lose $3,000
3 Tell boyfriend your e-mail password
2 Watch reruns of "Project Runway" instead of doing your homework
1 Drive to Mexico in a rented car and park it in the street overnight.

Your own top ten lists are welcome!

I enjoy your writings but sometimes I do not follow your cultural references for example Jackson Mac Low and Marjorie Morningstar. Any help you can offer in this regard will be appreciated.

Marjorie Morningstar is an awesome movie! How could anyone not know it. . .
The list is amazing. I actually know people who did a few of those things. I won't mention any names but I shared an office with one of them. Here's one: Try to receive your dropped cell phone from the subway track before the train pulls in!
