I like British movies…kind of a lot….also it is 7 a.m. and I am trying to stay awake so I can go to work.
Anyways I took this quiz and apparently I’m Juliet, which is frankly a better result than I expected.
"You Got: Juliet
You like pie, you can’t take a hint, and you’re a hot commodity in the love department.”
All of which is, like, so true. Well the first two are anyways.
I’m going to eat pastry now. Bye.
somewhere on social media today someone wrote that they used a particular analogy to “explain bullying to an addict”
this bothered me, so i tried to figure out why
i think it’s because
a) i’m not sure why the explainee’s status as addict is relevant
b) (i’m going to ignore for the moment any issues about whether the explainee should be referred to as an “addict” or a “person with an addiction”)
c) unless said addict is a very small child (possible, but improbable) why would they need someone to explain the concept of bullying to them
d) both gestures seem like the have more to do with bolstering a certain image of the explainer than they have anything to do with the explainee
e) i assume that image is supposed to be “i am a tough, gritty, but wise person who explains life to people who are familiar with its harshest realities”
f) although i now perceive the explainer as kind of a douche
g) like, addicts have problems with addiction, not with understanding what things are or how life works

Ahaha this is definitely my first instinct. (Which is not necessarily to be trusted but…whatever.)

Hmmm, yes probably the reasonable thing to do.

i was kind of considering joining a writer’s group that meets to edit each other’s stuff and runs through the local library
but then i read, like, 500 words by the coordinator of the group [it had that “i am too savvy for everyone” tone] and it kind of made me want to bang my head against the wall
which seems like a not ideal state of mind in which to spend one’s free time
so now i don’t know what to do
