corrective pencil marks

"Like a letter covered with corrective pencil marks, I have my defects. After all, I am not strong to begin with, and I believe even Hercules fainted once." -Lydia Davis, "Kafka Cooks Dinner"

Despite its morose namesake, mostly this blog is about how funny and charming I think I am, and whatever other word vomit I want to throw up on you.

If you're dying for it, click above to see more about me or to see a list of tags.

Basically, though: Amanda. 24. Montreal-born, New York-livin'. BA Psych from McGill. Graduate Diploma in Public Relations & Communications Management, also from McGill. I feel the need to bring up my schooling because people need to know for as long as I'm still paying the debt. (So: for the next 10 years, give or take.)

Also, I used to work as a comedy publicist but am currently working in celebrity news. Yikes, sorry about that.

Yahoo! News asks me bout that #botlife

Q: Do you have a cost estimate?

If I’m basing it on the $300 figure it would be about $12,000 [to get to 45 million]. But I think it would be much more than that. That’s where the hacker comes in, though! I reached out to Reddit because I was hoping that some hacker could just do this for me — some kind of like-minded Twitter rascal could just make them. Because that’s another thing: I don’t know who these guys are, I’m just paying money, like, to Pakistan. I don’t know where this money is going…I could be funding a jihad of some sort.

Personally, it’s worth it for me. But maybe in the long run, I’ll feel bad. I don’t know.

Q: Have you found any American companies that are doing this, or is it all former Soviet republics and Eastern European nations?

The way that I’m going about it is much more cost-effective. There are legit websites that people have pointed me towards where you pay a couple thousand dollars, and I’m just not going to do that. This is much more exciting.

I realized that I don’t care when athletes use steroids, and I’ve never cared. So it’s the same thing: Who cares if I had a million bots? It doesn’t mean anything. The athletes who use steroids are just psychos who are super-driven and they are willing to destroy themselves for a goal. And I guess I’m the same way.”
