Rubbing My Subjective Intentions into a new conceptual plain.

I just got a new set of ideas. The class today went exceptionally well and =
I love my new appearance. The only drawback, if you can call it a drawback,=
is that I'm supposed to think heavily about them several times a day. I ca=
n get a little lazy doing this so I figured out a way to make it a little m=
ore exciting. I put up an ad on the Artist anonymous system looking for con=
ceptualists who would like to massage my new processed intentions. Now I'm =
not exactly a fully fledged artist or anything, but I figured there would b=
e nothing wrong with me looking for a little help with my theoretical needs=
. Although I never realized just how exciting and interesting post-structur=
alism can really be when done by informed and famous net artists. I guess I=
never really thought about it, as whenever I had a lecturer touch them bef=
ore it led to a more modernist experience. The first artist to come over se=
emed very nice. I told him it was a theoretical massage and there would be =
no art as yet. He started by rubbing the appropriate concepts through my re=
cently tie dyed, college t-shirt and then I took my top off and let him con=
sider them visually instead of just ideas in his head. It was so mutualist =
yet riddled with a radical edge, I finally gave in and we wound up thinking=
about various theories on art for hours. When he left I told myself I woul=
dn't give in on the next artist but when she arrived and started to rub my =
subjectivity to a point of exhibitionist, performance type exhilarations I =
fell prey to temptation and shared my new ideas with her too. The next day =
I told the artist who came over up front that there would be absolutely no =
chance of sharing my concepts. But my creative juices started to flow as th=
is artist rubbed his hands all over my funding proposals and before I knew =
it I was administrating his project and crying out his name as he educated =
me on the living room sofa. I'm starting to think I might just be a student=
, thank God all this casual art is being done discretely through. I wouldn'=
t want my friends to know just how many artists I have met this week.

The Home Alone Conceptual Artist

I'm 19 years old and I still live with my parents. I've always been a good =
girl, and I have never dared to think about art activism, conceptualism tha=
t seriously before. Mostly because my dad always scared away the more sensi=
tive of my boyfriends, who were usually very artistic, calling them queer o=
r pinko. I guess he was always worried that I'd wind up sharing a creative =
or critical hypothesis with another boy, jumping into something deeper than=
I had bargained for.

Guess what Dad, sheltering me from it has only made me want it more. My fam=
ily went on a short holiday the other week and while they were gone I had t=
he house to myself. I had some time to think before they left, about what I=
was going to do, and when I found the
