I found the Carrie rejection note particularly funny since dystopian novels are so popular now.
Take another test. But, I really think the first test was accurate and it's just late from the EC.

You know you're old at heart when browsing through thoe Lakeland catalogue is exciting.
omg. I have decided I hate 90% of women under 25. You are all stupid. the fact that I used to think like you disgusts me. My only goal in life is to rais a daughter with self respect and critical thinking skills
Worst run ever I should have just walked for 40 minutes. I walk faster than the speed i just ran on a normal day. UGH. I'm so angry. I will blame it on having to work 13 hours straight yesterday and my job doesn't allow people to sit down. So I was standing for at least 12 of the 13. BC at one point my knees were so achey I was like adgaf I'm vegetating my fat sass
Aw, this is so sweet! Thank you!
When I posted it I hoped it would remind others, like you, kayb, and CIBC that as much as we sometimes feel like our lives are wasted, we do matter. It's a really hard thing for me, so it's nice to see the words. And I always miss your posts when you're not around. When I wake up early (which is most days), I look forward to checking this thread to catch your late night/early morning, insomnia-fueled thoughts/ramblings.

And yes, thankfully he's looking to date, so he's obviously not hung up on me or something.
Your acquaintance sounds incredibly gross and presumptuous. Ick!

As for books, I love classic literature. I've disliked some of course (cough, Wuthering Heights, cough), but I generally love it.
I've read newer stuff like Life of Pi, The Kite Runner, The Hunger Games, and others that I've enjoyed.
I tend to like dialogue, but beautiful prose can win me over (I'm looking at Charlotte Bronte's Villette, not you, Henry James).
One Hundred Years if Solitude, Jane Eyre, and Lolita are some of my favorites. And I love me some Agatha Christie, too! Flannery O'Connor and other southern authors do well with me, as do Russians (Chekov, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, though oy, The Brothers Karamazov was dull).
I love folk tales and mythology, but fantasy like Lord of the Rings is really dull to me, as is a lot of sci-fi.
I've thought of reading more Italo Calvino, Allende, and Coelho. Maybe some Greek tragedies, too.
Oh, and East of Eden, but I hear such mixed reactions to it that I can't ever commit to getting it.

For instance: who has two thumbs and just did a quick (likely too quick, but whatever) warm-up and stretch routine at nearly 5 am? This girl. Because I'm a BOSS. Or I'm loopy. OR. I'm both. It's nice having options.

I think I'm disproving the no physical exertion before bed thing, because my brain is all wooooooooooo everything's fuzzy you guys!!! after a very brief surge of energy from the warming up and stretching. This is unfair because fuzzy brains are not limber brains and I want to dredge up books from my memory to make a nice, orderly list, but instead I'm just like buh. I like books they have pages.

Heh, I adored Wuthering Heights when I read it in high school - well, except for whenever Lockwood narrated anything or the entire part with the second generation. I loved how the main characters who you'd expect to have this great romance for the ages actually had an intensely destructive monomaniac obsession with each other instead, and I reveled in watching two such fascinatingly selfish and volatile characters self-destruct and implode their world around them. The other characters were bland enough that I didn't have to feel for them and I just got to watch the main couple subvert the hell out of the whole idea of ~*passion*~ being the bestest thing ever. The second generation was just more bland people going about their business as if I cared, so I mentally edited it out, except when writing my big optional Senior AP English research paper, which I actually wrote to advocate for my reading of the book (under the flimsy guise of showing that it subverted various Romantic tropes or whatever), which I was not aware until I mentioned it to others was not the only one. Apparently, people thought that Heathcliff and Cathy actually DID have some sort of romance for the ages. I...I can't and I couldn't. What? No. The author even wrote all those boring new people to try to show you that wasn't the way! ...Thereby making it look like the only choices are boredom or death-by-toxic-obsession. Whoopsies!

I gave East of Eden a mixed reception inside my own head. There were parts I really liked, especially pertaining to a specific character, but especially as regards that character toward the end, there were some things that I really, really didn't. Also, the author liked a certain character far more than I did. I thought this person was dull and a bit of a dick. I should have known that a book so into Cain and Abel brother dichotomies would make me uneasy, though. Sibling rivalry issues, ahoy! I want to say more things about it but I do not trust my fuzzy brain at ALL so that will have to wait.

Have you ever read any Jane Austen? I love how snarky the narrator of Pride and Prejudice is. Also, the story and characters and such, but - snark. It does a body good.

OMG why can't I remember the other books I want to recommend and why must I also feel that all the best ones are on the tip of my tongue? I had better be able to dredge them up once I've gotten some sleep. BTW, I approve highly of your taste in books. Your post has reminded me that I really want to read Lolita and re-read Villette. Yes, I know, brain, you want to go do all the things while simultaneously collapsing on the computer.

Is this face asleep or dead? It says it's sleepy but I called it dead before but now that I'm this sleepy, I get it. Sleepy sleepy sleepy. No longer looks like a word.

I swear I did not deliberately descend into madness in response to you saying you enjoy my ramblings, this is just what my brain is doing! And I maybe shouldn't admit that! Okay, going.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I'm back because I have something very important to say:

****. You. Greg. Evans. You did NOT just victim blame and slutshame all up in your comic strip about teenaged girls. IDK what I'd expect from you since I recall that you've done some immensely stupid strips when it comes to gender roles in your comic, but I want to punch you in the gut for this. You do not just spout off about clothes somehow saying yes and that women are oh-so-hypocritical for wanting to flirt with cute guys and also not wanting to be harrassed **** YOU. Also, all you asshats agreeing in the comments can just go follow Evans into the fire.

Hello ladies!! I've missed you! Thank you for all the kind words, and sorry its taken me awhile to check in. The introvert took over with a vengeance and I've wanted to live in a cave. Not really, but you get the point. I've not been able to find my words, any words, but I'm getting there. Even though my dads health wasn't the best, this was a huge shock. He went to bed one night, and didn't wake up the next morning. I wish he was still here but if you have to go, that's a peaceful and painless way to do it. I am thankful for that.

Good news! I still have not managed to get a new phone but I discovered major problems with my wireless connection, got that taken care of, updated my phone, and now I have a fully functional iPhone/curl talk app!! Yippee! It's about damn time.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Animated GIFs are like the old internet came back for some reason. These GIFs are ancient, y'all. When many of you were still in diapers or a twinkle in your papa's eye, animated GIFs were so freaking cool, 'cause they moved and let me tell you nothing moved on the internet — that is, until there were GIFs.

Then we moved on as society and animated GIFs became tacky and passé and relegated to atrocious Geocities pages. Animated GIFs was the punchline to most jokes about bad web design. And then they took Geocities down (well, except for Japan) and we were finally free.

But before you could utter the words "Graphics Interchange Format," they were back and now they're everywhere, and not just stupid little smiley icons, but big azz graphics that take up most of your web page.

They put me in a freaking trance, first tempting me to try to determine where the loop resets and then tricking me into staring at them with my mouth slightly open, watching the unnatural movements with a horror I cannot adequately describe. If there is superimposed text I try, and usually fail, to read the lips so as to match them up with it. It's only once I realize that I've been staring at the damn thing for a frighteningly long time that I finally do manage to tear myself away and get on with my life.

These large animated GIFs basically render me a complete dumb**** staring at my computer screen like a drooling idiot. I hate that.

The next time that someone offers up that little “secret” to my daughter, I am going to slap the person across the face and yell, “I LOVE YOU”.
Look, if you want to tell your child that being verbally and/or physically abused is an acceptable sign of affection, i urge you to rethink your parenting strategy. If you try and feed MY daughter that crap, you better bring protective gear because I am going to shower you with the brand of “affection” you are endorsing.
I can’t teach my daughter to respect herself if I am teaching her that no one else has to respect her. I can’t raise sons that respect women, if I teach them that bullying is a valid expression of affection.
And this:

Gah! I don't know what to do with myself. I need to go shopping for fall clothes..I quite literally have none. But it's soooo rainy and raw today. Part of me thinks it's a perfect shopping day, not many people will be out and about. The other part thinks it's a perfect crochet/football/electric blanket day.

What to do...what to do...

Two women who I get on well with at work were discussing Megan Stammers and Jeremy Forest. They take on it was that she's 15, they should just be 'left to get on with it'.

I said she's underage, it's illegal, and that's no matter how grown up she thinks she is, or how in love she believes herself to be, or how aware 15 year of girls can be of their own sexual attractiveness, she is a child. He is an adult, a teacher and in a position of trust and authority and he should go to prison for it. I'm not interested in hearing his friends say how nice a guy he is, how kind and generous in the papers and I don't care if it wouldn't be illegal in France. It is here.

I pointed out to them that you say your comfortable with a 30 year old man focusing his attentions of a 15 year old girl, the papers said others had suspected a relationship for months. When did she turn 15? Are you ok with grown man paying that sort of attention to a 14 year old?

They went quiet then and one said, well when you look at it that way....

What do you know, today the papers are reporting she was 14 when it all started. Something these two, 40 year old women hadn't even considered.
