Fun with the sitcom meme

I frequently fill out memes but rarely post them. But frankly, I liked this one because it says scarcrest is played by Joan Collins.

My LiveJournal Sitcom
Visiting kellinator (TNN, 9:00): kellinator (Bridget Fonda) thinks whiskey_man (James Earl Jones) has a Brooklyn accent. That night, squiddna (Jason Behr) uses missbiscuit (Gene Kelly)'s armchair. Then, dhappy (RuPaul) and tropiquena (Ana Gasteyer) build a shed at the cinema. Later, dorktowerfeed (Priscilla Presley) gets mad at isis (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and decides to join the Peace Corps. On the other side of town, scarcrest (Joan Collins) burns pinkeffigy (Sally Field)'s notepad. (Closed captioned.)

But then I got to thinking... actually, my life is already a sitcom, and it's even zanier!! So with a little judicious copying and pasting, I came up with my own, much more accurate, sitcom:

My LiveJournal Sitcom
Kellinator's So-Called Nervous Breakdown (Comedy Central, 3 AM): kellinator gets in trouble for smoking all of 10dimensions' cloves. That night, alanator pisses off sirinek by building a shrine to Donald Rumsfeld. Then atomicnumber51 and gamgee get thrown out of the DNA Lounge for kung-fu fighting. Later metaphorge decides to start a cult and ariedana and kellinator get in a fistfight over who's more neurotic before deciding they'd really just rather drink all of reannon's alcohol instead. Meanwhile spazzkitty barfs on the rug. After reading edie22's RPS "Heated 18: Has Anyone Seen My Kryptonite Buttplug?", scarcrest sees the light and starts writing Homicide slash and stalking Andre Braugher. Hilarity ensues.

Weirdness at work

Necessary background information: There's a new art display at the library, photos of the weirdness that is the South. I think it's weird and wonderful. I've been meaning to LJ about some of the pieces I really like. But that will come later.

One of the photos is of a cemetery in rural South Georgia. Most prominent are two monuments which are facing away from us, two statues of a man and a woman sitting in chairs. The photograph is titled "Keeping Watch." To me, it speaks powerfully of the Southern tension over the past.

About an hour ago I found the framed photograph face-down on a table.

I assumed it had fallen off and someone had just picked it up. I called it to the attention of Will (my boss, for those of you joining us in progress) and wondered if the nail was loose, etc. Will called my attention to the Confederate flag visible on one of the graves.

...Now, I am a bleeding-heart liberal and am by no means a fan of the Stars and Bars. I don't think the Confederate flag has any place over state capitols. But I also don't think acknowledging the fact that it exists, and is important to people, is a declaration of support for it.

If you don't like the art, if it offends you, raise a dialogue over it. Don't just try and take it away because you don't agree with it. That's not going to win any people to your point of view.

We hung it back up for the time being. I'm anxious to see what happens next. If anyone calls me a racist, I WILL go through the roof.

...It just feels really weird to me to be in a spot where I'm not the one screaming against the flag.
