After writing "This Is Not A List" I had this feeling that somehow I was copying something I'd heard before. Tonight I remembered this essay by David Moser, titled "This Is the Title of This Story, Which Is Also Found Several Times in the Story Itself." To me, that work is a masterpiece. It's a long exercise in self-reference and self-referential humor, apparently written as a tribute to Douglas Hofstadter. Way cool.
My self-referencing self enjoys my self-referencing self referencing myself.
