assholes are like opinions, everyone has one

It's not that I have any issue with people who have different opinions than I do. Differing opinions and view points are what makes talking to people so interesting. I love talking to different people and learning what makes them tick and how they view the world.

What bugs me is when people take quotes out of context or use falsified information in order to prove that their opinion is valid. I really loathe mis-information and people who never bother to check their facts.

Have your opinions, state them, be passionate but don't mis-represent the facts and do some research.

Let's chat, shall we?

Giving thanks and stuff

I have a lot to be thankful for and I sometimes forget that. It is so easy to get caught up in the daily grind and in the minor annoyances and petty grievances that you lose sight of the things in your life that are good and even wonderful.

I had a fantastic 4 day weekend filled with sleeping in, drinks, clubbing with friends, dinner with my family including my friend who just moved to CO, seeing Mr. S's family, laying in bed watching TV with Mr. S, hanging out with a friend who has precious little free time, seeing friends from out of town, having noms delivered to me so I don't even have to put clothes on and just being able to relax and not feeling like I am spread too thin...

I had probably the best Thanksgiving weekend evar and so thank you. Thanks to everyone I shared it with, you are awesome.

epiphanies

Had a couple of  epiphanies in the last couple of weeks.
None of the comfortable.
None of them easy to deal with.
I miss the days when I never tried to figure out the WHY, just dealt with the annoyance and moved on.
Ignorance truly is bliss.
This has been why my psyche is all messed up.
This has been why I have been unusually grumpy lately.

How do I fix this?
Can I fix this?
Does saying Just Stop It in these circumstances work?

More to follow later but rest assured all is good and mostly happy in my world. There is no major traumas or changes or anything remotely bad.

Just some work that's gotta get done.

Hostess vs Gaza

The big news on Facebook this morning has either been about Hostess closing down or the attacks on the Gaza strip. Several people of my acquaintance have started to rant about how dumb people are for talking about Hostess and not Gaza. How they don't want to live in a world where people are more concerned about the loss of Twinkies rather than the loss of life.

I do have this to say though, talking about Hostess closing isn't likely to get people attacking you about how you are against Israel. One thing I have noticed is that whenever people tend to say anything disparaging about Israel or their attacks on Palestine, people tend to make the claim that you are an anti-Semite and that Israel is just protecting themselves. I get that I don't understand a lot of the politics, I get that I don't know a enough about the background and history of the formation of Israel. I don't really want to debate the finer points of politics or law or belief. I am not trying to offend anyone with my ignorance, I don't want to discuss my own personal beliefs.

I just wanted to take a second to point out that discussing the dissolution of a company that makes snack cakes is way easier and causes a lot less tension and grief than discussing the very real issues and problems that are happening elsewhere in the world. And that sort of sums up the way of the world doesn't it? We don't talk about real issues, we don't try to solve real problems and we certainly don't communicate with each other.

Politics

J- "So who did you vote for?"
Me - "I'm not going to tell you that"
J - "Why not? It's not like I will be offended or anything."
Me - "I don't care how you would feel about it but its none of your business. I don't even tell Mr. S who I vote for. I don't talk about it. Period"

I don't talk about politics.
It's not that I don't vote because I do.
It's not that I don't care because I do.
It's not that I don't have my own beliefs because I do.
I just keep them to myself.
I've always been private about my voting record and I always will be.
So don't assume because I don't say anything that it means I don't care because I do.

icky


I will let you in on a little secret –
 You know how when people tell me I look pretty  and I say “of course I do”? 
Well I don’t always buy it or rather, I don’t always feel it on a daily basis. It is totally normal for all of us to have days where we don’t feel attractive or we feel down about ourselves. It happens. But I have been having a week or so of it and it’s getting old. 

I even tried getting all dressed up and making myself pretty which usually works but no, still not feeling it.

Thing is, I don’t honestly think I am ugly or gross or any of these things but I*feel* like it right now. I just feel icky and I’m not sure what to do to make myself feel better as usually this feeling doesn’t linger for quite so long.

So here is my question to you – When you are feeling down about yourself what do you do to make yourself feel better?
