Miss Diogenes Kuhr addresses one of my favorite topics:
There is no difference between so-called “first life” and the unfortunately named Second Life.
If you are doing something…whatever you are doing and whatever context you do it in: it is life.
Do you enjoy it? Does it help you pass the time when you are not doing shit that someone else is making you do? Then it is valid. No one, and that means NO ONE has the right to tell you that you need to “get a life” or that you “have no life.”
That is the heart of her argument, but it is placed within a truly first-class rant (with exceptional cursing). Do go read the whole thing.
