I just don't like people anymore. It's gotten worse over the last few months, really. I just don't see the point most of the time. And when I do, I've invariably seen this routine before so I just sit back, wait for the axe to fall, and then can't even be bothered to take pleasure in the "I told ya."

I've been pretty damned cranky more often than not lately. Part of that is just work, which is always its own brand of annoying, and part is that I'm getting married before the end of the year. There are a lot of loose threads, things I avoid thinking about, things I want to have a clean slate for. I want to get certain bills paid up and at the same time I want to stop waiting for the other shoe to drop for the rest of my life.

Mika is downstairs either barking at the half dead, still floating around balloon, or the very nice backyard neighbor who is very very good at ignoring her. I'm always really embarassed when she starts barking at him when he's out there doing something. A few weeks ago he spent a few hours in the morning building a bamboo trellis/ cage for the tomato plants to keep them upright and never so much as looked at Mika the whole time she was barking.

Explain to me why someone like gigglecam has over 700 friends on their list. Is this because we read what we can handle, not what we like? Or do people dig it?

My favourite new kind of person to dislike is the ex-schoolfriend.

The type that for some reason or another you were friends with and enjoyed talking to a few years ago, but now that period is all they talk about. Nothing has happened to them, in their mind it's some sort of limbo. They end up recyling "do you remember x 80s tv show?" or "hey what was the name of x song?" conversation topics, that drive you insane. The problem being it's the easiest type of conversation to have with people sometimes.

"Yeah I errr moved to Japan and am nearing the end of my degree, looking at another year teaching here and then deciding where to go from there. How about you?"
"Hey do you remember that time we told Mr Milner to sod off? hahaha I thought he was gonna die!"

cutting all ties after high school served me well in that respect. Now the most painful conversations are with people who I've had a single shared experience with and now we rehash that one experience until there is nothing to point out about it anymore and then begin the uncomfortable silence portion.

The ones I'm hating the most at the moment are the slut-with-a-good-heart-who-could-be-great-if-she'd-just-stop-being-such-a-whore and the chick-who-just-can't-stop-shit-talking-her-husband-to-anyone-and-everyone.

gigglecam posts like, two word entries, so i think the appeal has to the a fracas in the comments section, almost like a chat room? who knows.

Dude... I read through some... she actually says "*giggle*" in a bunch of the responses.

I'd die from the sugar.

She's had a webcam presence on the Internet for years, often featuring nudity?

Just a stab.

herm... I don't think she's a nudie one. I do know that she spent a chunk of time posting very white bread food items at extreme closeup to picturing food every day... and apparently does the same thing in her journal by the looks of it.

I mean ... that's EXCITEMENT.

Well more of a "lifecam" than a "lookit mah tittehs" thing but it's been around forever and there's definitely been some skin here and there.

So, you're planning to get married, go up in SpaceShip One, and turn the black hole generator on the lot of us? SCHLORP, all your troubles, just... gone.
