Invisibility

Having determined by empirical research that I am, for the most part, invisible to others, I have decided to plan a bank robbery or some other dastardly deed to make myself slightly more opaque.

There are a few discerning people in the world (you are one if you're reading this) to whom I'm not invisible.

In order to gather my gang, would all of you to whom I'm not invisible leave a comment and a list of your skills in cat burglary, larceny, mayhem, or other criminal behavior.

I'll be getting back to you via this invisible blog to make our evil plans to take over the universe.

  1. I'm afraid I'm not very skilled in any criminal activity, except perhaps rabble-rousing. It's amazing: many people only pay attention to me when I'm stirring up trouble (especially when I question some of the current thoughts regarding writing, or speak my mind regarding the latest teapot tempest).

    I get what you're saying regarding being invisible. A visual artist hanging out in the world of writers can be quite invisible at times. Yeah, I'm supposedly a writer, too. However, I don't always feel like a genuine member of that rather dysfunctional tribe. Poets seem to be on the fringe of that extended family.

  2. Richard: Haven't seen you around since I quit LiveJournal in frustration. I'll follow your Azure Lion Productions in my Google reader.

    Okay, my fine first minion is a brilliant artist who can cleverly hide the plans to the bank (or whatever we're going to rob) within a beautifully executed medieval dragon or shield.

    Mwuhahaha! The team is gathering!

  3. I'm a pacifist, and I can't recommend robbing anyone: Right Livelihood is to abandon trades that harm humans or other living beings.

    However I'm quiet and watchful and I think I can see people quite well. And I can cook. The gang will definitely need a cook.

  4. The Invisible Gang welcomes Bamika. Having a good meal to come back to the hideout after pulling a job is priceless. A gang can't operate without fuel.

  5. I may be a cat, but I was never a burgler. :-(

  6. Hey, Tom: You can be our counselor to talk us out of committing any real crimes.

    Obviously, this is just for fun.

    So far, we have someone to draw plans, a buckboard getaway driver, a cook, a safe cracker, and me. I guess I'm the "brains" of the outfit. Quit laughing!

  7. "...Haven't seen you around since I quit LiveJournal in frustration."

    Did you say you quit LJ in frustration? So did i! I ended up in one too many internet snit fits with authors, and decided I couldn't deal with the negativity any longer. I got sick of being belittled and berated any time I spoke my mind. LJ presented too much of a temptation to get into arguments over stupid things, and a lot of what others said simply became "blah, blah, blah".

  8. Marva, I'm afraid I work primarily with those who already have. I'm sure that some of my friends inside would love you to be their cellie. ;-)

  9. Richard: I do recall some wars of words. I saw lots of advice to writers to keep your controversial opinions on other people's sites and use an alias so it won't be associated back to you.

    For example, I comment on TomCat's excellent blog, but under a different name. TC will keep my identity secret I hope.

    Tom: I'm not sure how to take that. I've evaded prison so far and all my criminal activities are imaginary. ;)

  10. Since I'm in a secret gang, can I have an invisible tattoo? *doe eyes*

  11. Bamika! Excellent idea. Richard might design our invisible tattoo.

  12. Then I guess you're stick in an imaginary prison. ;-)

  13. Stone walls do not a prison make, or iron bars a cage. Although, if you ask me, they're like a pretty good start at least? I mean, iron bars? They're gonna be tough to break out of, right?
