Quantcast

By planforamiracle on Wednesday Open Thread

@CheddarBiscuit THIS. When I hear "fireworks all the time" all I can think of is my last relationship, which was seriously dysfunctional and beautiful and passionate. I was miserable. It's a cliché that passion burning bright burns itself out, but it was true for me.
ETA- so don't blame "We're not a romantic family" –romance in the Hollywood sense is highly overrated and is, by and large, creepy, stalkerish, non-consensual and non-boundary-respecting behaviour.

Yesssss blissful alone time. 4 days in which everyone assumes I'm having thanksgiving with someone else and I just get to do whatever I want.

I might get it together enough to make pancakes at some point.

I've never knowingly heard any of their songs (though I probably have, like, in a store) and lean more towards the 'doom metal' end of the musical spectrum but your excitement is WAY CONTAGIOUS and I am SO going to check out this album.

This is a masterpiece.

TRUE One Direction fans know that Liam was the Brian Jones of 1D, the one originally picked for stardom, then thrust aside when it became clear that other members had more spark. (Harry is Mick Jagger in this analogy, for obvious reasons, which makes Zayn Keith Richards. I'll allow it.) Watch the X Factor performances, he gets loads more screentime and solos than anyone else.

Anybody else out there that cannot stop hate-reading blogs and ragging on their authors? Yeah. You know what site I'm talking about. I've never been into celebrity gossip or politics really...but man...I love hate-reading blogs and it makes me feel so guilty! I have other, more constructive hobbies and consider myself a fairly positive person except for this one guilty pleasure.

The bad thing is that it's starting to seep into other parts of my life. I hate-read people's Facebook pages and rag on them for being lazy and whiny. I should stop! I need to stop. But it feels so goooood.

First off, "She believed them to be monogamous, but for Geoffrey it was a different story" is a bullshit way to say "Geoffrey, a dirtbag, was cheating on his girlfriend." Second, the worst time I forgot to hide something was when I had a motivational screen saver of people I was jealous of or had crushes on, etc., and my mom came over to visit, and I left it on, and she was like "isn't that that [smart, attractive] guy from your high school [five years ago][who you barely knew but I know his mom]?" and I was like "NO!" and dove towards my computer, and now (four years later) she still mentions him to me all the time in this fake off-hand way even though we're pretending like she never saw the screen saver.

“One can't let their cheating condoms sit at the very top of the pile!”

I can't pretend that wasn't said.
