Am now collapsing far too much. And too violently. And food seems to make me ill. This is not fair.
"The West Wing" faces me with the age old dilemma of "Oh, god, I am actually right wing in terms of ideals". Damn them for having a plausible articulate republican.

I am trying to read a book by a physicist, and officially ill. Very annoying.

Oh, and if someone could explain to my sister that "you might have to shoot someone" is not a valid argument against joining the argument, it would be nice.

Thank you.

You should not be ill. Stop being ill. It worries me and I am not a natural at this worrying lark. Much sympathy. Get better.

Yes, it is a difficulty, isn't it? Because I swing between being monarchial and anarchist, and really preservation is a nice thing, and... yeah. Right-wing ideals are shiny, but on the other hand- no. Just no.

Which book?

Which argument? And having to shoot people is a thing which Ought to be Avoided.

Oh, army not argument. Damn. Collapsed last night, then woke up and was violently ill.

Having to kill people sounds like a reasonable enough reason against joining the army to me.

Illness is bad. Cease and desist, you mad fool. Certainly you must be better by Tuesday. Please?

Am now afraid that i have made you ill again, because you were getting better before you saw me, and gah. Guilt.

How is it not a valid argument? You might have to shoot someone, you might be forced into contributing to the deaths of numerous people.

More to the point, you'd probably have to wear combats again some time, and nobody wants that.

Combats weren't that bad...
I do not actually have a huge problem with shooting people. I would do logistics anyway (the part which involves making sure as few people as possible are shot)

My mother's argument against it is that I am now officially underweight and therefore too frail to join.

Are you planning to join the army?

I really don't consider there to be room for discussion.

You may NOT join the army, or you may well be disowned.

Even the Irish Army? They do peace keeping

PBL, DON'T join the army. Really.
Also, don't be ill! Am v. worried about you collapsing all over the place!
And finally, which Republican do you mean? Ainsley Hayes, or...?
Confusion. It IS a Democratic White House, you know, there is bit of a dearth of Republicans.

Even the Irish army. You would have to fight people for stupid reasons at some point and then you would be upset. Just because you have Xenophonic tendencies is no reason to act upon them, dammit.

I was not watching the early series. There is a Republican Presidential candidate later, and he is jolly good. As is the Democrat.

Ainsley Hayes, however, has a very good argument against the equal rights Act, with which I do agree.

I am puzzled by how fervently you are against this army lark.

O, and Belle and Sebastian avoid hanging prepositions. Which is nice.

Belle and Sebastian are generally nice.

Given that anyone who actively wants to join the army will probably have no qualms about shooting people, that's not really a convincing argument.

The "You're too ill/frail to join" is much more convincing.

Now, bearing in mind the answer may be "so I can shoot people", I feel I must ask why you wish to embark upon military service?

Hope you're feeling less frail/ill btw.
