A Note about Irony

A lot of people listen to "Ironic" by Alanis and say, "No, that is not ironic! It's coincidental!" Irony can be and oftertimes is mired in coincidence. I do thing that she needs to clarify in some parts, like when she sings "It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife." Not so ironic by itself, but if the previous day she'd been looking for a spoon and found only 10,000 knives and then complained about it, which caused the knife-drawer-keeper to replace all the knives with spoons so that the next day she was expecting to have plenty of knives there are only spoons, that would be ironic.

Irony is defined as an incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs. Remember this definition, because if you want to experience irony, bitch about people not understanding the concept until someone dares you to define it. They aren't expecting a good answer. ;) Like in that one movie, y'know, with the guy...

I'm listening to a group whose name is ironic. Dead Can Dance. I don't expecte dead to dance. BwaaaaAH?

So it's late and — holy crap! 2am?!

G'night! Oh, yeah, new icon, me as a vampire, ironic since I just inferred how I need to get to bed, when a vampire would be in the middle of her waking cycle.

Ok, shutting up now...
