Say Anything

Say Anything. Quite the appropriate title for my first blog, which also just happens to be my favorite film of all time.

But can one really say anything? Diane Court says to her father during the climatic scene,"no, I don't want to leave anything out because I know I can say anything to you." Can a person really say anything?

Can I tell self-inflicting martyrs to suck it up and quit complaining? Can I tell the snide commenter that he/she needs to get some self confidence? Can I tell the stupid woman/man to quit saying things like "Ghiradelli" in a weird, French accent in an attempt to sound sophisticated? You sound even more stupid than you really [hopefully] are, considering that Gear-ar-deli is Italian. I suppose I could say all these things, but I don't.

Roger Elbert said that Say Anything is about honesty, and there is such a thing as being too honest. I don't want to hurt people's feelings.

But here, in the world we live in, there exists such a wondrous thing as the Internet, and here I can say anything. Welcome to my blog.
