I wanted to call the AO in Norton Commons, “The Village of the Damned”, but we settled on Pleasantville.
I guess because nothing inspires you to work harder and push yourself to your limits when things are tough than something that’s pleasant.
Maybe we’re using it ironically? I doubt it since no one really knows how to be ironic, or what ironic means. Alanis Morissette wrote an entire song about the concept and never quite got there. Her song was more like a series of unfortunate events. I wonder if that makes the entire song ironic? Probably not. But I do think Pleasantville is intended to be ironic.
Whatever it is, I’m glad to be the Q tomorrow. Not sure if the workout will be pleasant, pleasant in the ironic sense, or damned.
Anyhoo, see you there. 0530 near the amphitheater. There are many of you I haven’t seen in a while. You know who you are.
