Are you more than a microcelebrity if you and your cult were international news for a few months in the 80s?

By commenting on this blog, you are already famous.

Jordan said...

But by what degree?

Van Choojitarom said...

Genius is immortal

Whose genius are you referring to, yours or mine? Actually, knowing the approximate size of your ego, I think I know the answer ;)

Van Choojitarom said...

The ego is just for show.

Jordan said...

Oh, I know that. Don't forget, I've actually met you in person. That's why I think you're so adorable ;)
