Haha yes I don't like getting forwards, mostly because many of them require Windows or take too long to get to the funny part and I don't like the feeling of just being part of a "select all" action - I'm a beautiful snowflake, dangit!!
... (I chose to listen
Or listen a little anyway
Okay so I am a bit annoyed with certain social patterns, like schmoozy salesmanishness and yes I'm making up words! I have a part-time employment opportunity coming up but the person who is connecting me with it created a sense of immediacy about it and I think this was salesmanishness so meanwhile I am just waiting but annoyed because she presented it like it was happening very soon when realistic expressions about timing would have been really much nicer!!
Oh and that also relates to how silly I think it is that our culture leads to asking questions for the ritual act. Like when someone asks how are you doing. We don't ask to actually get the honest answer, and I think this doesn't encourage authenticity! It encourages masks... while many are totally fine with that, I think our realness is beautiful! And I'll admit, if someone asks me that question right after I had an experience that pulls me off my center, I find myself with a strong desire to answer honestly. I often switch to give the socially appropriate answer, but I don't like tapping into that self-control, and would prefer it if the culture did not use questions for this stuff where there's the implication to not be honest unless you happen to genuinely feel wonderful/blessed/fine in that moment.
Oh, and I don't like living in an area that has such a crappy reputation. My state was used in a bump on Adult Swim last night as the fattest state for the fifth year in a row or something. That's lame. And they need to change the pricing for HFCS so people aren't getting fatter because they can only afford that cheaply made, highly-processed food.
Oh... speaking of that state.... I find it annoying when I come across people, such as a couple I'm quite close to, who are pro-Reagan and pro-bootstrap mentality BUT they ALSO draw social assistance from the government. Um... that's ridiculous.
