A Seinfeld Posting

I think I watched maybe…two episodes of Seinfeld during its run on TV. It never appealed to me. After all, it was really a show about nothing.

And so is this post.

So, here’s hoping your day is full of sunshine and kittens.

Unlike mine, which is full of laundry and nausea πŸ˜‰

    I am doing laundry today too… what a coinky-dink!
    As for Seinfeld…. I love it! Whenever Seinfeld jokes come up, we get the dvd from Netflix and show them to Buttercup so she can keep up!

    I discovered the definitive “nothing” commentary thirty-*mumble* years ago and was unable to keep a straight face for days and would even break into guffaws at the most inappropriate moments… It’s online now (of course):


    A sample, from about halfway through the article, might be illustrative:

    The friends of nothing may be divided into two distinct though not exclusive classes: the know-nothings, who claim a phenomenological acquaintance with nothing in particular, and the fear-nothings, who, believing, with Macbeth, that “nothing is but what is not,” are thereby launched into dialectical encounter with nullity in general. For the first, nothing, so far from being a mere grammatical illusion, is a genuine, even positive, feature of experience. We are all familiar with, and have a vocabulary for, holes and gaps, lacks and losses, absenses, silences, impalpabilities, insipidities, and the like. Voids and vacancies of one sort or another are sought after, dealt in and advertised in the newspapers. And what are these, it is asked, but perceived fragments of nothingness, experiential blanks, which command, nonetheless, their share of attention and therefore deserve recognition?

    My children learned quite early nt to answer a query from Dad with, “Nothing,” since it would invariably result in,

    “Nothing is an awe-inspiring yet essentially undigested concept, highly esteemed by writers of an existentialist tendency, but by most others regarded with axiety, nausea, or panic. Nobody seems to know how to deal with it (he would, of course), and plain persons generally are reported to have little difficulty in saying, seeing, hearing, and doing nothing. Philosophers, however… ” etc., until the pained expressions on their faces told me they had gotten the message that “Nothing” was not an appropriate response to my question.

    To this day, they avoid a nonsensical and unresponsive “Nothing” in response to queries where it is inappropriate.

    Yes, I am evil. πŸ™‚

    Hmmm. Think I will have to try that out on Rat Boy! He answers lately with the proverbial teenaged ‘nothing’ far too often for my liking. πŸ˜€

    Plus, it’s always fun to find a way to annoy him. After all, that’s my job as a parent, right?

    Laundry here too, Aggie. πŸ™‚ It’s a never ending cycle it seems. (Hehe..i said cycle…) Obviously, I’m up way too early! πŸ˜›

    No kittens for me, thanks, I’m allergic. But I’ll take some sunshine.
