"More so!" The first full sentence I spoke while in my highchair, according to my family, was "I want some more!" ... The second sentence I spoke when in the back of the car was "I can't see much!" ... But part of the demon that drives me requires, i.e., gives me no quarter, my Being competitive. I've thought more about "it" more and more this weekend and will get back to you sometime this week. You have reinfected me with this question! ... i can tell you about my demon in so-called discursive language, but describing it is something else. I will just have to give you some representative, or misrepresentative ... anecdotes, or antidotes.... Have sent out more calls for the rcid-engl position. ... Our house has sprung yet another leak, this time, the commode on one floor, that was reinstalled by a plumber, has begun to leak, as they say, "black water"! so the Servpro people, who are still working on the house, are coming with their chemicals to kill the stuff before it does whatever it does. ... there are demons and then there are demons. ... i just tell you that i believe this house is haunted! i kid you now. only the gods know what happened here. infectuous images throughout the above. most of my writings use this imagery. bacteria and viruses and immune systems. when i read avital ronell, i found more of the same. in fact, it was a former grad student who found the two of us using the same imagery to drive what wanted to be said. ... have you read Pearson's (sp) -viroid life-? good book on nietzsche and deleuze.” -- Victor
