I hate Facebook.
I want off but I know damned well if I do I'm going to miss out on parties/hangouts because people have become way too reliant on 'creating events' and can't be bothered to email or call anymore.
But it's so useless. And junky. And it makes me so uncomfortable the way that people from your past can just track you down and creep on your life, even when you're not 'friends' or have set permissions, etc.
a little less conversation, a little more action please

i hate people on facebook that put the most menial and mundane of statuses and responses. I don't care if you ran out of milk and I don't want to read you tell your husband to pick some up after work. Why can't you fucking call or text him that to tell him personally? No, your friends do not enjoy hearing about your boring life.
That's what they say now. They don't even bother with the pretense of asking "Paper or plastic?"
"Do you have a cart?"
"These paper bags don't have handles anymore, you know."
"Yeah, I know. You people were tired of paying for paper bags, so a few months ago you stopped putting handles on them in the devious hope that we'll start using those damn flimsy plastic bags that hold one item each and beg for a reason to exist! No dice, my underhanded friend! I'd rather struggle with the bulk of five handle-free paper bags than accept 26 cheap-ass plastic bags and give in to your corporate penny-pinchery! And don't think I don't see the irony in stating that you're eliminating handles for paper-saving "green" reasons while you're really just driving people to use non-biodegradable plastic!" *
"Very good, sir. Have a nice evening!"
I fumed out to the parking lot with my five precariously balanced paper bags and drove home while working up an impressively irritated mood. I arrived home, and as the elevator door opened, so did a tear in the ill-positioned bag containing milk and a six-pack of beer.
* May or may not have been thought but not said.
Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
i'm reading some enneagram descriptions on the enneagram institute's website and i keep coming across this fucking word "unselfconscious." Wtf, who uses that word? I've never heard of it...sounds made up.
I looked it up on dictionary.com and this is what it means: adj. Not self-conscious; natural and genuine. why not just say "genuine" or "not self conscious"? anyway, ugh lol
