orange_prose: Angry violets from The Sims Social (violent)
Sf_drama makes me sad. I desperately want to read it, because I love drama, but it's mostly social justice stuff now. Which is fine, but I want a nice simple stupid that won't raise my blood-pressure, not misogyny.

But I end up reading it anyway, and then I'm mad or triggered. All I want is for people to get mad about waffles or yarn or something.

Whining on facebook about your ex's only makes you look immature. And I'm so fucking sick of hearing about it.

Dear Past Self,

Why do you suck so much? Honestly, I feel like all I do lately is clean up your messes. Why didn’t you write that paper? You knew about it for a month. An entire month. And what did you do? You waited until the last minute and made me do it. You always do that. You leave your clothes on the floor, knowing I’ll have to clean it up. It’s the same with dirty dishes. Seriously, you’re only a little bit younger than I am. There is no need for you to behave so childishly. Also, can you stop it with the popcorn? You know it makes me sick. And perfume, too. We’re allergic. We will still be allergic, no matter how much you buy. You’re wasting your life—our life. You should be doing something productive, but instead all you do is play video games and write pointless letters to yourself.

~Present Self

There needs to be an option to have your facebook language be valley girl. "Like, OMG, So-and-so is engaged!!!" "Random thinks they're, like, your friend. As if." "Ricky Bobby likes your post!!! BFF's!"

In other words, The Drama is still going on. We shall not speak of it.

There is no such thing as sexy sweatpants.
orange_prose: She-devil from Echo Bazaar (Default) owns me now, FYI. I wish I could echo (basically re-posting in game language) here, though. I'm probably annoying my Facebook friends list. But I usually annoy them.

Also, I has a dreamwidth. Obviously.

I don't need 500 condoms, even if they are free. Thanks for looking out, though.

Your Handwriting Says You Are Not Traditional

You are highly energetic. You are a passionate, intense, vigorous person.

You are somewhat outgoing, but you're not a natural extrovert. You think first before you act. You tend to be independent, rational, and logical.

You are extravagant, over the top, and indulgent. You set trends and influence people.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are a free thinker. You are unique, open minded, and artistic. You don't care what other people think.

You are a decent communicator. You eventually get your point across, but sometimes you leave things a bit ambiguous.

"It’s a feature of our age that if you write a work of fiction, everyone assumes that the people and events in it are disguised biography — but if you write your biography, it’s equally assumed you’re lying your head off."

— Margaret Atwood

I hesitate to write parents who are abusive or absent because I worry that people will think that its based upon my own parents, when in fact the opposite is true. My parents are amazing. I don't mind much if readers decide that all the characters are me or Jesus in Purgatory,* but I worry when it comes to deciding they are based on other people.

*And another thing, why is Jesus even in Purgatory? If He can't get right into heaven, there's no hope for me, is there? I mean, His dad freakin' owns the place!

Do not give you contact information out online. Ever. Not your phone number, your hometown, your full name, your street number, any of that. Because it is insanely easy to find out more from it, and I don't want you to get hurt or killed, okay?

"I hate blogs. Blogs are for angry people who are sitting at their computer with a glass of wine at midnight with nothing better to do. No companies use blogs anymore."

I'm going to put this on here and facebook, because facebook eats my notes. So, 25 things about me.

This is a facebook note from forever ago:

I just spent about five minutes of my life reporting links to websites about how much a bunch of high school kids hate their ex-girlfriends. Each and every one promised nude pictures of the girls. There's no way these girls are eighteen, which makes this child pornography. I know they don't realize that, and I know it's silly, but they could get put away for the rest of their lives.

Man, my ex just told all his friends I was ugly.

I feel so bad for these girls. Not only do they probably have to go to school with boys this nasty and immature, that crap can now never be deleted.

And yes, I am enough of a goody-two-shoes to report them. Bunch a jerks. I don't feel guilty at all.

9 things people might not know about you:

1. I think it would be cool to get a snakebite piecing, like this:

2. But I would chew on it and it would get infected and gross. I chew on everything.

3. I'm really bad at these things. I don't think I'm really interesting.

4. I used to be really snobby about the books I read, but I'm trying to stop.

5. I eat napkins every chance I get.

6. I love comics, and desperately wish I could draw so that I could do some.

7. I take anti-depressants.

8. I have more friends this year then I have ever before. :)

9. I'm quite good at painting.

I thought I'd give you guys a copy of my short write for A.E. Houseman's "To an Athlete Dying Young" because I like it, but I don't know if the teacher will.

This is the story I wrote for ontd_creepy:

Almost every neighborhood has a hoarder. They may have trash in their house, piled high, or, in a much sadder case, they may hoard animals. We call these people crazy cat ladies, and are generally horrible to them.

Before I was married the first time, I lived in a town with the worst animal hoarder I had ever heard about. This woman was extremely elderly, and she had not aged well. You could see every bone in her hands and the skin was peeled so tightly on her face (and almost all you could see of her was her hands and her face). I was cashier at a Wal-Mart during this time, and she would come in periodically. She was not a pleasant woman, she would snap at us with strange orders to pack only certain things together, and the orders changed each time.

I Was Born A Ramblin' Man )

On an entirely different note, light a candle for the victims of child pornography.

My dad was forced to get a new phone number (this isn't as good a story as it sounds) recently. And there was the typical wrong numbers that come with that. I swear our whole family gets more wrong number then is normal. He would get calls for John*. Apparently John was kind of a jerk, and my dad gets angry calls/texts occasionally from John's exes. Turns out it was a John Tucker Must Die kinda situation, where all these women found out John was dating the lot of them. John quickly changed phone numbers, leaving my poor happily married dad with all these women demanding to know why John cheated on them. Luckily, my dad's name is not John.

*I considered changing his name, as I will with most people I eventually talk about, but I figured it's common enough, and I don't actually know the guy, so meh.
