A quick short post, this one.
Got my goat:
You see the pattern?
Someone who’s pretty new to MUA and shows a certain yawn-worthy repetitiousness in posting (um, and what was with that first banned / removed post?). Methinks somewhere between shilling and trolling. And so: On My Very Own Official Watch-list (in response to all these foolish pampered princess Wish-lists). For whatever that’s worth, or not, as the case may be. You heard it here first: new troll-about-town to watch! It’s like celeb-spotting.
On the other hand (for there is always at least one of them stuck ungraciously in a pocket): from the form of the name, Perfect Foundation must be a deity; from the name’s content, this is a Goddess of aesthetics come down to grace us humble mortals with Her presence, for we should be duly grateful and dutifully worshipful. Just putting Pascal’s wager out there, just in case, you never know, better safe than sorry and all that.
Hang on: doesn’t work. For the above to work, we would need “The” at the beginning of the name, rather than “A.” Does that imply it’s a False God? In which case one should definitely worship? Or is it one of a pantheon? How many Perfect Foundations are there out there? *quakes in very human terror* (and lo! we have a new definition of The Abject).
Anyway. My goat was got. Hence irritated response to the latest one of five—yes FIVE—lists of desirable items of crap posted up today:
UPDATES (2013-07-21): grounds for hope, and (((hugs))) to fellow-greenies who got the point. Also, I think the idea of a Bastard-Child-of-GreenMUA-and-Pinterest is a good one. But seeing as how I don’t want to make money out of that sort of thing (and indeed can’t, for work conflict of interest reasons): I throw the idea out there. If you think it’s good, go forth and do stuff with it, and good luck to you!
Next bit of that conversation:
And then the whole post goes in a different (and hence (((hugs))) to other greenboarders) direction:
Here’s some more optimism: most of the next few MUA Green Board posts continued in a greener (and less consumerist, for some at times actively anti-consumerist) direction:
Compare and contrast two of these responses in detail, with the last word going to the wit and wisdom of Perfect Foundation:
