Default Hello all, happy approaching Christmas and Bollox


Hi all,

I saw a thread on here, which asked an approximation of the following: " hi all, I am really happy to see you, because I have been away this weekend, and all I could think about is your responses to my writing. Even the kids went without because I am a narcissistic father. Now I am back, and I can't wait to read about me, me, me, me because I am hideous human being feigning good.

What an arsehole. Anyway, it was some approximation of that. It was perhaps better disguised under some pretence of "good", but it was clearly, self obsessed, narcissistic bollox.

Maybe they had to buy Christmas presents. Oh my God, I have to be seen to give better presents than the other people with me... this is so hard...

Dunno, what my point is, but that's all...

Nah, Iím another one. Though Iím still not sure how Cityboy got that whole messiah relationship so backwards. Didnít we agree that I was to be your messiah? Gawd, Iím going to have to go through my notes on the subject.

You can have the job. Things usually don't turn out all that well for the typical messiah.

("...well one has to be real selfish here lest it all becomes selfless, where selflessness can make one so invisible to others by all that compromiset therein, that's just a repetition of your dailylife I imagine..." confided the goblin, continuing "...and of course part of my selfishness is to advance others around me too as they feed me my thoughts, and besides that, alone I couldn't possibly reach that massive readership across forumland there, doesn't stop me trying though, just I like the odds...", at which point the goblin wondered if any of this had related to what chinspinner had first posted, probably not then, yet either way though it was just an approximation within an approximation)

This is a very odd writing challenge.
