Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
And I have no clue what it sounds like. Maybe I can find a download or something.
And I should get around to writing that "what do you not like that is the cat's pussy or somethign like that for everyone else in the world" meme. I apologize for being so slow. Dang!
OK, off to see if I can find out what that song sounds like, if it is going to be my summer anthem and all. tah!
OK, here is that song. I dunno. I guess it is sort of relaxed and pop-y. I wrote I like "adult alternative" though who knows what that really means eh!!
OK here I go, this cuz I was tagged by im2evil4u:
List five things that society in general apparently enjoys or tolerates but that you just don't get:
Alcohol Yes, I don't get alcohol. I will drink it if I am with someone and want to be sociable as they are drinking and I don't mind getting tipsy. I don't enjoy how it tastes for the most part. I think it is unnecessary, expensive, and makes you act like a dolt. I have had a real hangover only once, and a slight hangover another once. But some people drink enough to have a hangover regularly. I don't get it. Maybe you should like, um, eat til you puke nearly every time you have a nice dinner too huh? So, um, yeah, I will drink a wee bit now, and it can be amusing to be tipsy a bit with the right person. But mostly it is annoying, and I hate that most adult socialising revolves around it.
Adult women's clothing This includes most all of the clothing, AND the shoes. The clothing is mostly in uncomfortable fabric that is high maintenance, totally impractical for doing anything other than sitting down or standing where there is no mess, no dog hair, no twigs to catch on it etc. It doesn't have practical pockets, or strong knees, is not practical to ride a bike or climb a ladder. Most is tightly cut, or floofy and frilly, or gapes if you move at all. Most inhibits about 90% of movement, is really expensive, fragile and hard to clean. And looks dumb. Hate the adult women's clothing.
Adult pastimes I dunno. Most things adults are supposed to do is boring. Boring. Their jokes are either stupid and juvenile like 11 yr olds, or just lame. Sitting around in bars drinking and smoking and flirting is boring. Esp cuz most guys act like such "guys", not humans that they are if you sit in a coffeeshop with them. And most girls act like grade 6 girls flirting with guys, like they can't do anything and don't have a brain in their heads and dont mind the guys acting like idiots. Most adults seem to have a very narrow range of acceptable behaviour, both for themselves and for others. And I don't understand it. Most of what they think is fun, I think is boring or stupid. I don't want to golf, or play bridge, or poker. Most of what I think is fun, they think either juvenile or off the wall. Esp cuz I'm not usually drunk. Juvenile as in actually dancing to music instead of dancing like you are your grandmother, or someone will beat you if you let go a bit. I don't know. I don't understand most adults. I really don't. It seems that there is some codebook somewhere that indicates exactly how uptight one needs to be, unless one is drunk and making a total ass out of oneself. How about having fun without the drunken ass part? oooo!!! how not adult!!
Adult Men What is up with men over the age of 30? Some who are artists or in cinema or whatever actually manage to be groovy and fun and interesting. But look at the singles ads of men over 40 (put in woman looking for man 40-50 yrs), or the business pages, and they are frightening. They look like they could be my father and they are younger than me. How do they get that way? Why the paunches and the bad business suits? I don't know. Why do most men age so badly?
"Adult Interiors" And what is up with the incredibly boring houses most adults have? They have paintings and posters that are there to fill up space, like wallpaper. They have furniture that isn't made to live on. There is nothing lying around. They look like bars, or magazines. They don' t look like people with hobbies and interests, busy lives and emotions live there. Why must a house look like a doctor's office? I guess they go with the women's clothes, and the uptight men, the straightlaced "fun" and the needing to drink to "let go".
OK, I suppose that is a very weird set of answers. I could have answered more specifically, like I don't understand asphalting your front yard. I don't understand buying a car, making monthly payments and then getting totally out of shape by driving everywhere in it to justify the monthly payments. I don't understand huge tv sets or video games. I don't understand wanting to passively use your time like that instead of learning something or creating something. I don't understand buying water in little bottles to drink in your own house. I don't understand why anyone would START smoking (we all know how hard it is to stop, and it stinks... we understand why they CONTINUE smoking but why start in the first place?). I don't understand people who dress like they are going to the office in a heated van, who are outside on the street in winter. Why walk your dog in heels and a light jacket with no hat or mitts at minus 30? I don't understand why people don't play with their dogs, but bring them to the park and then stand there. I certainly don't understand religious people. It seems sort of like, we see a beautiful painting. We could agree that it must have been painted by someone. But one person with no proof says "it was painted by Bob" another says "I believe it was painted by a fairy godmother" another says "no it was Rembrandt, even though it isn't signed, but I believe it was... someone wrote in a blog that it was, and I believe that Rembrant was speaking through them" and another says "It was painted by Margarite". But no one has any proof whatsoever outside what they believe, and there is no agreement whatsoever, but people will kill and fight and argue that what they believe is right. I mean, hello!! So, if there is a situation or a crime or something, we can agree it is an unsolved crime if there is no proof eh! And the fact that the crime exists is NOT proof that YOUR particular hypothesis of whodunnit is correct. And what I wrote isn't even a good example, cuz we have seen people paint paintings, so we can relatively well assume it was a person and not a fairy, but who has ever seen God or Allah or whatever create a universe, so that we can argue over WHICH deity created it? Dang. Silliness. Yes the universe is there and it is amazing, but we have NO idea who made it, or how or why.
So maybe it is like them magic rocks you put in water. The person who puts them in water watches them evolve once they are sprinkled, and if you put your fingers in and start mucking around they are NOT as beautiful and amazing. So maybe there WAS evolution AND a God who started it all, and he sprinkled something into the primordial morass and it evolved then, like magic rocks go from little rocks to majestic towering complex formations eh! Maybe evolution AND God are both right. But who the effin fuck knows. So, yeah, I don't understand religion or faith or belief in one answer.
I also don' t understand why vegans wear non-natural items which are just as bad or worse for the environment and the animals who live in it (ie vinyl shoes). The shoes are icky for the most part, and fake leather. I don't get car racing. I guess I should stop now. I gotta get to work. Anyways, there ya go. I make a bad adult. tah!
