The Fake Babysitter

I’m not one to write about drunken hookup stories. It’s clichéd, cheap, exploitative, clichéd, bad form, douchey, lazy, the worst form of “humble brag,” and also clichéd. HOWEVER, writing about drunken hookup stories involving people that aren’t you? That’s just people-watching. And now matter how many times you think you’ve seen it all, people can surprise you. So why don’t you sit right back, and I, I may tell you a tale. A tale of drunken douchebaggery and thespianism set in the backdrop of fair Washington, DC. Across the street from the MCI Verizon Center after a Penguins-Capitals game that I wasn’t at.

Public Parody And Mockery: My Peter King Moment

The Internet is a varied landscape that approaches dystopian hell far more than utopian bliss. For every person online that likes what you do there’s many more that hate you or that don’t or won’t acknowledge your existence. If you create content on the Internet, you will receive some praise, but you will also receive angry emails and hatred in the comment sections. Peter King, the senior NFL writer for Sports Illustrated, is a prime example of this. He does a column every Monday called Monday Morning Quarterback, or MMQB. It’s his take on the NFL, rules, upcoming games, news and has some personal anecdotes sprinkled in. Every Monday KSK does a Fun With Peter King column, where he gets torn a new asshole. He takes it in stride and even retweets some of the venom that is directed his way. Some think that’s a douche move on his part, but I for one, find it interesting to see some of the bile that is directed his way. I suppose it’s part of the cost of his level of fame. He’ll never make everyone happy, and will always have detractors.

Recently, I’ve had some what you could call struggles in my personal life. My job situation has become tenuous to say the least and my future position and stability is balanced, shakily, on the edge of a deck of cards. [Edit:Redacted] Needless to say, I’ve not been in the best attitude as of late. It happens to us all though, but unfortunately my life is quasi-public. Now I get to feel the little stabs of “humor” that is mockery. New to the world is the Twitter account @EmoGally.

Well, Bravo good sir/s. I don’t know who is running the account, though I have my suspicions. The account is funny, or at least would be to those that don’t know me, though has crossed a line once or twice. I’m now sorry I didn’t just drink my face off and shut the fuck up, bottling everything inside. I was never mopey enough to warrant this, though I suppose I did start it. In a couple of moments of self parody I labeled a few tweets as #emogally. So I suppose it is my fault after all. I guess that you haven’t “made it” on the Internet until there’s something solely set up to mock you. So this is Internet infamy? Not as much hookers and blow as I would have expected.
