Befriend, v.t. To make an ingrate.
2005 Update: To add to one's jurisdiction.
SPECIAL COMING ATTRACTIONS: "Egotist, n. A person of low taste, more interested in himself than in me." Thank you to Weirsdo of The Pansi Files for not being an egotist and writing your reviews of this site, Synchronicity of Indeterminacy and Tom & Icy. I think those authors would agree with me as to your generosity.
"Critic, n. A person who boasts himself hard to please because nobody tries to please him." Weirsdo, you are far too generous, incisive and articulate to be called a critic, but I'll plagiarize you if anyone asks me what this site is about. Enjoy your vacation, and I hope this site continues to please you.
P.S. Sorry about the gender confusion, it's Bierce not me.
SPECIAL MINI-REVIEW: I would like to share my experience reading The Pansi Files. I tracked back from one of the first comments left on this site. The Profile showed a garishly made-up plastic doll and contained a bio that Pansi had worked as a cheerleader, mom and exotic dancer and was 17, I had seen enough blogs to know that some people use dolls, cartoons, or celebrities in lieu of their picture and I read what I thought was a personal journal. When I read Pansi's files I let out a sincere "that's f***ed up." I continued reading and the posts included offhand comments about children run over by cars, husbands dying and the like. There were also references to Alabama and Florida. As a recovering Georgian, that allowed me to continue suspending my disbelief and to read on, mortified and thinking sanctimonious thoughts about how some people should not breed. When I finally got the context I threw my head back in a laughter that finally tapered off into "that's so brilliant...so brilliant."
