Obnoxiously Confident Ex
Should the right reaction to this be agitated or amused?

Last summer I obtained and lost my first (technically) boyfriend. The only thing that had led me to even approach a relationship with said ex was the pleading of my best friend who - "Wants one of my[her] ships to actually work this time..please make it work!" That, and also the vanity in me that starved for the attention of one from the opposite sex. So with that driving me to him, I gave it a shot and like all the ships my friend had tried to make work, this ended up sinking as well. Barely one month in the relationship I told my ex; lets call him Noz, I told Noz that I did not think 'we' were working out. Well to be honest I didn't bluntly exclaim this, this was my first break up, it was quite a daunting task so I might have let it drag on too long of hinting that I needed to tell him something important. He had guessed between A) me breaking up with him, or B) That I was a secret transvestite. After I answered that I was in fact breaking up with him, we awkwardly walked home and before we had separated to cross different streets he whisper to me "I guess I won't be your gigolo anymore..."

People are stupid.
I've felt the need to rant about this for a while, then I found this community.

It's about my friend and her boyfriend. So the thing is, we live in Sask. and he lives in Edmonton, then she thinks she can complain about the distance all she wants, and expects people won't get annoyed, since she was the one he chose to be with him in the first place. What makes it weirder is that they decided to get together the first day they met...

I try to stay out of it, I try to be happy for her, but that kinda gets hard when she only talks about him 24/7. I can't help but feel bitter and annoyed, and it almost feels like she's rubbing the fact she has a boyfriend in our faces. Like there has got to be other things to talk about right? Not just complaining and bragging about your relationship...

I almost blew up the other night when she was texting me when she said "He's part of my family now" when they've only even known each other for five fucking months, and only met in person like twice. I worry about her as much as it pisses me off.

She was also completely shocked when I told her this was annoying me, it's like even though she's one of my closest friends, she doesn't even have a sense of when to stop and change the topic.

May be a stupid topic...but I wanted to rant anyway.

Is there anything the shitmunchers WON'T buy?
Maybe I should have been a con-man, politician or a bankster. 'Cos looking at the internet and the news, it seems you're all fucking morons who will buy any bucket of shit with a hole in it that the government and its propagandists want to sell you.

* Right wing "new" Labour - morons bought it.
* War in Iraq - morons bought it.
* Hassling immigrants and gypsies - morons bought it.

and the big one:

* Beating the living shit out of poor people while handing BILLIONS to the super-rich... MORONS BOUGHT IT lock, stock and barrel. Seems they don't mind being impoverished as long as some poor family gets made homeless. If nothing else this proves my thesis that BRITISH PEOPLE ARE CUNTS.

And whenever anyone came along to offer you an alternative - like the old school Lib Dems under Kennedy - well, you didn't like that, did you? Occupy protesters want to blame "capitalism", conspiracies and the banking lizards, but it seems they're just taking advantage. You lot really seem to go around with your trousers down and the words FUCK ME tattooed on your buttocks.

Why don't you just wire Cameron all your money directly and cut out the middle man!

unhappy new years
CANNOT believe my boyfriend would seriously want to spend new years eve at his moms house where there is going to be NOTHING happening. I knew that he was going to want to go over there today but I assumed that it would be earlier in the day so that we could just go say hi and get it over with. but no, of course he wants to wait until 11 so we'll be there when it turns midnight. i'm just like seriously dude??? we talked about this before and said that we wanted to hang out and have a good time with his friends. all we're going to do at his moms is eat...like oooh wow that's so awesome! not. i want to drink and just be able to relax and party. we didn't really get to party for Christmas so now i'm all anxious to do it. even last night one of his friends asked what we were planning on doing today and my boyfriend made it seem like we were going to be hanging out. UGH!!!!! OMG!!! so annoyed!!!

Is it not okay for families to go out and enjoy themselves alone without friends and lovers of family members tagging along?

My grandma thinks that just because my boyfriend didn't invite me to ice skating with his family tonight, that they may be prejudice. Which is totally excluding the fact that they've invited me over to dinner and to enjoy the recent holidays with them anyway.

And while having a friend/lover/spouse whoever of a different ethnicity than one's self is never an indication of one being racist or not, his mom seems to be perfectly fine having to nieces that are mixed and is apparently someone who has instilled some form of gender and ethnic/racial equality in my boyfriend (and certainly more than other people our age generally show).

I'm sorry, but why do I need to be at his side 24/7? Especially when they're already distant as a family and probably need more time together alone, anyway. And it's not like any of their friends were invited, or his brother's girlfriend.

Ugh. I wish she'd stop saying these inane things, and I wish they'd stop irritating me every time. 
(Why don't I have an annoyed icon? I need those now, apparently.)

A bedtime story
The worst plague, worse than just about anything, is stupid people who think they're smart.

Such people have all but destroyed our world. Everything they touch turns to shit - we had one of these people as Chancellor of the Exchequer and he doomed another generation to low paid poverty with his clever-stupid little schemes that didn't work. Then he became prime minister and saved the world for himself, however this failed when it transpired that all that nasty stuff that was hitherto off the books very suddenly went on the books, and we were all fucked.

Before they fucked the economy though, the stupid people who think they're clever fucked the environment. One thing they did was to invent clever machines that, they promised, would generate infinite amounts of cheap, clean energy. They knew it was completely safe because they said it was, and, hey, they were really clever so if they said that nothing could go wrong, then obviously nothing CAN go wrong.

The result is that every 20 years or so a nuclear power station goes BANG near a populated area and several million people get their DNA rearranged free and gratis courtesy of the Friendly Atom. Plus, every ten years or so, some tin pot dictator gets himself a nice little pile of atom bombs to play with. Fun!

Having fucked over the economy AND the environment, the stupid people who think they're clever turned their eyes to everyday life. The problem with computers, which until then had been made by people who really WERE clever and not just narcissistic assholes who thought they were, was that they were too simple, too easy to use. Why, any person with sufficient training, could run a large and powerful server of their very own.

Oh dear, they said to themselves. We can't have that. So they invented their own operating system, one that didn't work properly and whose innards made no sense, and named themselves masters of their own domain. Everyone who knew what they were talking about told the stupid people who thought they were clever that they were just really fucking stupid, that nobody in their right mind would want to use an operating system that had barely changed since the '60s, and that people were better off with computers that were easy to use.

"Ah-ha", said the stupid people (who thought they were clever). "That's where you're wrong. You see, if we make it really hard for people to use computers again, then eventually the only people who can get jobs in the industry will be borderline autists like us. Incapable of relating to other people's needs, we'll just arrogantly tell the public that they're too stupid to use computers and that the problem here is simply that machines are always right and people are always wrong. We'll dress this up in clever language and as a result our closed shop will be protected forever."

And so they did. Computing became an obscurantist subject once more, impossible for anyone else to break into as the information on how to work them was spread across a billion web pages and thousands of doorstop-thick computer manuals that went out of date almost as soon as they rolled off the presses. People everywhere tried to learn how to use the new operating systems, which didn't work properly and could only be maintained by experts, but found that they couldn't because, far from being logical, their setup made no sense at all.

And so, stupid people who thought they were clever consolidated their grip on Earth. The economy was fucked forever - whoever was in charge, clever idiots would come out of the woodwork and force their moronic, expensive little schemes on the country with the result that the only people with money were a few oligarchs, politicians, and of course the clever idiots themselves. The environment was screwed, as the clever idiots conned people into accepting clever-stupid schemes for "capturing" and "offsetting" pollution rather than just making less of it, schemes which only ever worked on paper - and we were kind of running out of trees anyway.

And of course technology was constantly breaking down, because the operating systems they were based on were all designed by clever idiots who were so clever they could do really stupid things like write programs with no real operating manual, but at least the clever idiots had a job - fixing the stuff they'd fucked up in the first fucking place!

Yesterday I ran into a girl at a yoga class, who I used to know from some place personal... all she said pretty much was "Hi" to me, then walked away (yes, I know it could've been worse...) But we had somewhat a history together and I found it to be kind of rude.

I'm also aware that I didn't reach out to her more either.  Maybe we were both just anxious.  But if not-

Why are so many people mean and aloof?  I know, some people just are, and we as people often trigger each other's insecurities...  I don't believe that anyone who is mean is not insecure.

I know I most likely made this girl uncomfortable by saying something very honest in front of her once.. but I don't regret it.  The environment in which I did was appropriate and it's important to me to live my life with honesty.  If that made this interaction yesterday more awkward, oh well.  But that doesn't make it any less annoying.

Such is life.

too much brotherly love
i live with my boyfriend of 3 years and his family, we are finally moving into our own place this next week but ever since i've lived with him we've never been able to just be by ourselves! EVERYDAY his brothers come into our room and 9 times out of 10 they don't even ask they just walk in and sit down. we have a make-shift lock on our door but don't leave it locked all the time cuz we'll go in and out to do w/e but we shouldn't have to have it locked in order for them to knock! i constantly tell my boyfriend that there's no reason they need to be in there all the time and he just doesn't do anything about it. i can't even change when i want to w/o having to tell them to get out and then they come right back in. when we have friends over they walk in right after them. it shouldn't have to take us moving out in order for us to just be able to relax and not always have 2 or 3 other people in our room with us. i get so annoyed and have headaches all the time having to deal with there loudness and talking. sometimes they aren't even doing what we are like if we're watching a movie they'll come in there and be playing on their psp or watching youtube videos on their phone. what's the point?? you can be out in the living room or in your own room doing that. then of course as soon as they leave at night my boyfriend tells me to get undressed and i tell him well why the hell should i now??? i couldn't 5 minutes ago when i wanted to. so frustrating!

My Three-Dimensional Rant
It is time:




*ahem*




What the flying fuck is with this era and the thecnology??


Why must people think its ok for EVERYTHING to be in 3D???



First, we had the movies in theaters.
Ok, some were good in 3D... Most didn't even NEED to be in 3D. It was the same when it wasn't in 3D.



Then, we have the 3D television...
Why? Is it necessary? No... No it is not...
Plus you had to pay a lot more for the glasses FOR the TV then the TV itself.
Money hungry bastards.



Then up came some portable video games....
Why was this needed? Are the kids not having enough eye problems?
It even says that it MAY cause seizures... Oh yes, PLEASE let kids play with this.



NOW, they will have a 3D phone!!
Why??? Why why why??? Smartphones, flip phones even brick phones are fine they way they are.
I'm sure there will be problems with this damn new 3D phone.

I'm very tired of everything being in 3D.
It's getting very annoying and very old.
Enough is enough.

Just. Stop.

Can't we just have life and nature in 3D and leave it at that?
I don't think its too much to ask for.

Dear world,

I want kids. I want to save sex for marriage. I want to stay away from drugs and alcohol, and I want to marry my high school sweetheart.

I want my dad to walk me down the aisle, and I want to live in a little yellow house with a front porch. I want my kids to have a dog. I want to go to college, and I want my kids to go to college. I want to write for a living. I want to show my kids Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, and I want to see their faces on Christmas Day when they see the presents from Santa.

I want to teach my kids to make their own choices, like I'm doing.

Call me a prude, or a loser, or whatever. I don't care. I'm done caring whether it matters to you or your brother or your cousin. I want to live my own life without your opinion. It's my life, and I'll do what I want with it.

Love,
Me

I Hate Dorm Life

I am woken up at 3;00 AM by people banging and screaming right outside my door.
My window looks out to a basketball court where guys play loudly until dawn.
The girls on the floor know nothing but how to party and drink.
The community bathrooms have nasty stalls and showers that are too small.

Get me out of this hellhole!!

Several things, mostly unpopular opinions, rapid fire:
I'm trying to get into the HP fandom, but I don't love teenage angst Snape. So sue me. When so many fics go on and on about how misunderstood and sad he was as a child, I want to rip my hair out a little. Can't we get more of evil spy Snape?
Yes, I prefer my porn with one character on bottom. I know that gives certain people squids of anger. Guess what? I prefer “being on bottom” in my own sex life- or the straight woman’s equivalent of. Some people actually do prefer it one way or another. My preference of top and bottom in slash pairings in fanfiction is really none of your concern.
Assange. Great, he put some secret documents on the internet. Awesome. I'm sick of people acting like he's some brilliant, new age martyr for freedom of speech on the internet. Read up on the details, check out the Pentagon Papers and the New York Times case from 1971. He isn't the first and he won't be the last. The adulation people have for him leading them to doubt the accusations against him of rape make me make angry faces.
Being a libertarian =/= being a small town racist. As someone who has danced around libertarian ideals for a while, I would say that the core ideology is mostly that race is clearly an issue in our culture, but the government has tentative control, at best, over large pattern socio-economic trends. I don't believe this 100%, but it rankles me to here things over simplified.
Most unions have lobbyists. Not all lobbyists are evil. Not all lobbyists are paid by big corporations. We are never, ever going to be able to get rid of them all together so just give. It. A rest.
I am stupidly in love with a man I talk to almost daily about how much he is infatuated with another woman. I can’t even be angry with her, because she is brilliant, funny, sharp, kind, morally sound, and much prettier than me. I have to face up to the fact that I am no competition.
Website that says feminists are trying to “claim” transgender people as part of the movement because they are either biologic women or identify as women: screw you. That just… what? No. This assumes a few things that are very untrue, such as 1) all feminists are women 2) all feminists are embroiled in some sort of scheme to appear tragic, 3) the goal of feminism is to make men look like criminals. Ah! Kill it with fire!
Fanficrant community- please stop critiquing one another’s rants. People just want to vent most of the time. The fact that something can be argued possible that someone is complaining about becoming the norm doesn’t make them feel better.
Sorry, that was a lot. I have been saving up for a while.

I hate it when I am trying to help out around the house and trying to change and become more of an adult like getting my GED which I started classes to get ready for my test on Tuesday and maybe try to look for a job even if it is a part time job and some people around my age sit around playing videos games instead of helping out more. I am glad I can only control my actions and not others.

Dear Boyfriend
FUCK YOU. Alright, I was a bit insensitive before when I was annoyed because I can't see you tomorrow. But there is no need to fucking ignore me because of that when I try to say sorry. I'm SOOOO fucking sorry I want to see you, and it's SO insensitive of me to want to get out this fucking house because, y'know, I don't have a job AND college like some uber special people. You'll have time to sleep over at your BFF's house though won't you? The one who has a thing for you? Heaven forbid something got in the way of that, even stopping yourself from running straight over there after college to spend a few hours in the cinema with me. Yeah, remember those 6 months when YOU were unemployed and YOU were falling to bits over it?! Fuck off to your fucking BFFs house, hope he fucking comes in your hair, you stupid, selfish, emotionally ignorant twat.

And BTW, "Stop being so negative"?! From YOU?! The most fucking moody, negative, sarcastic person I've ever met?! From the guy who will not change his fucking sleeping habits, and then sulks because he's woken up at 11.30am?! Jesus, 98% of the time I love you so much, but on that 2% I just want to fucking slap you.

Dear Entitled Authors: Fuck You
So I decided to try my luck over on FFN because it's been awhile since I actually got off of LJ - oh fandom fic communities, how you've spoiled me so - to read something that wasn't a published book or, worse, classwork. I got there, read a few pretty awesome fics, some that were pretty alright, not the best but definitely worth a look, and some that were pretty awful. I hit up the White Collar section because it's the newest addition to my addictions and then I found one fic that was, in my opinion, mediocre. It wasn't horrible but it definitely wasn't the best.

Here's the run down: (please note these are my opinoins)
  • Writer wrote White Collar 'Spanking' fiction.
  • Writer disregarded characterization to further her own plot.
  • Writer wrote Peter as a sadistic and abusive bastard to further plot.
  • Writer wrote Neal as a whiny brat that apparently didn't appreciate anything Moz did to help him.
  • Writer continued to disregard characterization to continue the plot down its narrow and winding road.
  • Story went on for 13 chapters.
  • People reviewed it; most enjoyed it. One notable person did not.
  • Writer read their review then decided to debase the reviewer for not giving them candy and Twilight sparkles in their review.
  • I decided to leave a review.
I don't care who you are, what you've accomplished in fandom, or how many people 'wub' your stories, you do not get to demand good reviews just because you wrote something. Furthermore, you're not entitled to get good reviews. You're just a fanfiction writer that wrote something you're proud of and decided to share it with the world. That doesn't automatically mean that the rest of the world is going to be just as proud of what you wrote and instantly fawn all over it and you. I'm sorry, that's not how the real world works.

If you wrote something you're proud of then kudos and I'm very happy for you. If you decided to share it with the rest of the world, drop your expectations at the door and prepare yourself for the universal fact as follows: Not everyone is going to like it. There might even be flames involved. However, please know the difference between 'Flaming', 'Neutral dislike', and 'Constructive Criticism'. Just because someone doesn't like what you've written doesn't automatically make them a 'Flamer' nor does it EVER mean they're wrongwrongwrong for disliking your story. It just means that you've suddenly found yourself confronted with the fact that there's someone out there that didn't like your work.

This is not the end of the world. Don't treat it like it is. Also, don't treat the reviewer like an idiot and degrade their opinion just because they didn't like your story. They have a right to their opinion just as you've the right not to disregard their opinion. You do not, however, have the right to tell them they are wrong for disliking your story. You are not them and therefore have no say in how they think, act, or feel about something, especially your story. You are not entitled to ANYTHING from other people. If they want to leave a glowing review then that's their right just as it's their right to leave a not so glowing review. 

Remember: Fandom does not need you to exist. It will continue whether or not you contribute to it. It's better for it if you contribute but it won't be less if you do not.

Sparkly vampire WHAT?
So, today premieres yet another movie in that cash cow of a franchise that makes rich fucks wank themselves to death because they know that they can milk the shit out of stupid obsessed teens who have no taste but become obsessed with the most utter garbage.

And once again we prove that, while women complain that all men care about is hot chicks under 120lbs who have wide hips, narrow waists, and giant boobs, that women can be just as superficial as men. If not more so. Especially teenage and tween girls.

The popularity of shit like the Jonas Brothers, Justin Beiber, and a while ago, boy bands like iNsink, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees, show that a guy doesn't have to have talent, he doesn't have to have a fucking personality, even, all he has to do is be gay, suck cock, sing romantic shit, and look fucking hot in order for a lot of shallow women to sit there and cream their panties.

Why else to explain the popularity of a certain cash cow movie coming out today that stars a certain sparkly twink of a vampire that sucks more cock than he sucks blood? What's the appeal of this movie? It certainly isn't the acting or the plot. It's because you have big muscular sexy werewolf guys with their shirts off 99% of the fucking time, and a gay vampire who's hot and sexy and mutters romantic shit and cares about FEELINGS and EMOTIONS. That's the only thing the shallow girls care about is if the guys are HOT or not.

So don't give me shit that men are shallow pigs while a bunch of women scream over hot guys at Eclipse tonight and argue over which lead male is hotter. Women are just as shallow and petty, if not more so.

You have to make THIS MUCH in order to get unemployment
My job still has me employed, but I'm not getting any hours and I'm not working.

The good thing is, Unemployment would be able to give me money even though I'm not technically unemployed.

The bad thing is, you have to have a minimum quarterly income in order to get unemployment. In my case, I would have to have been working 35+ hours in order to qualify. I was just working 20-25 hours a week and barely squeezing by.

I can understand a maximum amount of income, but a minimum? It makes no sense that you'd have to make a certain amount of money in order to get unemployment. You mean welfare has a lower limit? Blasphemy!

This sounds like a bunch of government bureaucratic bullshit. No, the government is not fucking over the poor and the lower class, not at all. No, the government isn't sucking the fucking cocks of the middle class, and especially the rich. Naw, the government isn't bending over and taking it up the ass from the richest Americans. In this honest, non-corrupt nation? Never!

So I guess what Unemployment and the government of Michigan is saying is they'd rather me NOT pay my rent, they'd rather me BECOME homeless, and they'd rather pay money up the fucking wazzoo in homeless shelters and programs WHEN I'M HOMELESS than give me unemployment so I can try to pay rent.

You know what. The US and state governments are fucked. They're full of bullshit and corruption and cocksucking and they're the only ones to blame for their massive deficits and broken government. As long as we have corrupt and greedy and STUPID people in government doing selfish stupid things we'll have people who are poor and unemployed and homeless.

Appetizers as much as meals
So I'm reading the menu for the resturant chain I work at (but rarely eat at), and I'm looking at the appetizers. And I notice that most of the appetizers are $7-9, and none are less than $5.

DID ANYONE REMEMBER THE TIME WHEN APPETIZERS WERE ALL FUCKING UNDER FIVE FUCKING DOLLARS????

Maybe if these resturants are running out of money in these tough economic times, they should reduce the paychecks of those rich fucks at the top of the management chain.
