First let me direct you to DJ Cheese Zombie's blog Are you going to finish that?. A far better writer with a more f'd up view of reality than I could ever muster to blog about.
Many a meal with DJ CZ ends with that Starving Kids in China rationale behind that question, so the title is quite fitting.
I'll say this again and again
I lie sometimes, but if you know me and ask me point blank questions about what I wrote, I will answer honestly.
Either I don't care enough about you or what you think, so I'm not going to lie or I do care about you and I'm not going to lie because I generally believe it is better to be honest and open in a relationship/friendship.
Waiting to tell is not the same as lying.
Starving Kids in China would make a great band name don't you think?
