only words can help me find you  
1. Flatmate Dave, YOU SUCK. Your girlfriend does not live here (I mean, technically; literally, she does) and you do not have unique rights to the sofa. What if I wanted to sit there, bitch? One day I will. On your lameass cuddling LAPS.

2. I started trolling bandflesh because I didn't Get It for approximately an aeon and a half. Here are my thinky thoughts:
- not enough Vin Diesel. Remember HP anon memes? Vin Diesel ALWAYS showed up.
- what was HP anon wank even about? I can't remember. There was always Aja, I know. Bandom seems to have a lot of wanksters - i.e. people who get wanked about, correctly or incorrectly - for its size.
- after six hours and no study, I keep wanting to use LOL GENIUS and have figured out only half of the acronyms. iawt or whatever it is has been around for yonks, I just fail at figuring stuff out.
- reading anon memes always makes me lose faith in humanity even while I find them funny and engrossing.
- oh yeah, Keltie. I saw a picture of her jumping out of a cake for Rossy's birthday? Sorry to all Keltiewives, but that is the most hideous thing I could imagine countenancing as a SO. If she was actually a stripper by profession that'd be sort of cool, but I gathered from, um, the two posts I read of her blog that she's a dancer. Plus, Ryan buying a house with another dude? He was so never invested in THAT relationship, Jesus H Christ.

3. I was crossing the road at a busy intersection and two cars stopped at a green light. To let me and some others cross. We didn't, we just stared at them. LOL NO, FAIL DRIVER.

4. Soft drink does not make you thirstier. My mom used this trick on me for years and because it actually makes sense, I believed it. Protip for any parents out there.

5. There is a guitar sale in two shops in town. One of them has a pink acoustic for one seventy and one has a royal blue acoustic with an electric pickup for one eighty (down from two hundred plus). I AM TORN. And my parents keep trying to kill my buzz by saying 'what's the colour got to do with it?' (HINT: A LOT) and 'why can't you just play the piano?' (HINT: SLIGHTLY TOO BIG TO CARRY.)

6. When I doss off study I always feel I should do something useful for fandom, like write a bb!Ryan/Spencer story where they play doctors. Snh, snh, snh. HOWEVER. There was some SGA wank about someone flouncing because they didn't get enough comments? You know, man, I feel like that. I wish I could say 'If people don't give me 60+ decent length comments of three long sentences or more detailing my fic's many virtues followed by gleeful flailing, I will not post more.' Because I always feel short-changed and ignored. This is le fact. You know what else is le fact? If I did that, no one would give a flying fuck. So I don't. I sit and stew and maybe have a little weep. It's a bit like when I see some really fugly, boring, ugly bitch with a boyfriend and think 'I'm at least 2% better than this chick, why does no one want me?' There's no answer that actually HELPS with this.

7. Facebook telling me 'relationship status: in a relationship' still stabs me brightly and suddenly everytime I see it, four years later. SELF, WHEN WILL YOU GET OVER THIS.

I so would, only it's not even that nice. I mean yes, it's pink, but whoever made it clearly hated pink and decided to uglify it as much as poss. Plus it's in the snooty shop, whereas in the other there was one dude working and he took down a bunch of geetars and played them so I could hear what they sounded like. *cannot play*

BLUE BLUE BLUE. Pink guitars dude, unless they are electric, they tend to be both tacky and deficient. And often made of actual DIRT, because sometimes little girls are suckers for pink. *is made vicious by horrifying memories of a crappy pink daisy*

I do have very fond memories of a certain blue acoustic. Mine alas, is dark wood, but it is excellent and beautiful, and I love it more than anything except my bass so it is not so much an alas after all. Omnomnom, guitars...

On your lameass cuddling LAPS.

DO IT. *___*

Bigger girls also. Um.

Yeah, I'm just such a sucker for colours! I know it should be about the way it SOUNDS, but I'd also like a white baby grand, you know?

and that was the beginning of fairiesnyx_nox on April 23rd, 2009 11:21 pm (UTC)
I know, this is true. I STILL want a pink bass (a la Mark Hoppus though, I am a little faulty in the girliness department).

Colours are excellent things *nods* They allow you to match shoes to instruments if the whim should take you :D :D

EW, I'm very, very sorry!?

I vote for pink guitar! And also re: point 6: I know how you feel. I wish I knew what to tell you to make it not so painful (both the commenting thing and the ugly girls with boyfriends thing) but. Well I don't really, except that you are super amazing and kick-ass and SO SMART oh my god, and you are going to find someone a lot better than those stupid guys who are too blind to see that their girlfriends suck a lot. And that guy is going to be hopefully sort of nearing the amazingness that you possess and it will be awesome.

Maybe that guy will be Jason Segal? (What? A girl can dream. :D)

I still have to talk my mom around. SIGH.

That would be alright! He is pretty awesome.

Good luck!

Ryan bought a house with a dude? Which one? That one above?

Above ... where? No, I mean Eric, Panic's keyboardist. He also has a band called Black Gold. He is the new Shane! Did you not KNOW? :D

sorry, by above I meant my icon (Jon). That's so random that he's living with Eric! Awesome, but random!

OH RIGHT. I'm so smrt.

It is totally random! To us, I mean, it clearly makes sense to Ryan - and we've been blithely forgetting Eric existed. Clearly Ryan wanted a slashy BFF like Brendon.

well I should have clued in when I saw Eric at the bonfire but I didn't. slashy BFFs FTW!!

I JUST wrote you a letter dealing with like, three of these points WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT. Or maybe it was two, um. Whatever, I am totally psychic.

Re: 5. Is that a serious question? ... on what planet does pink not win every prize ever and then some?

You are! You can set up a helpline and make a killing.

Warl ... it's actually a kind of shitty pink compared to how shiny and sleek the blue is. Besides, it's an academic question if the parentship does not consent. Are you warm yet? ;D

And my parents keep trying to kill my buzz by saying 'what's the colour got to do with it?' (HINT: A LOT) and 'why can't you just play the piano?' (HINT: SLIGHTLY TOO BIG TO CARRY.)

ahahhahaha so, so true. How often do you see random dudes sitting around playing a piano? NOT OFTEN. With guitars, a lot, yes. BUT PIANOS? (Also, BLUE.)

and think 'I'm at least 2% better than this chick, why does no one want me?'

COrrrect that to AT LEAST 20%. PWNEEED.

(But yeah, seriously, I never understand that. I know aaaall these mean boring ugly people in serious relationships and it always makes me go "???" a lot. But also the ones I know in person are crazy sluts, so maybe that has something to do with it?)

And re: comments, I think most people feel that way. With icons at least I can track and see how many people click through from the teasers and let me say that less than 10% of the people who look at them comment, and I see my icons used quite a bit (especially in Doctor Who fandom, which is so full of crap icons that everyone always puts these amazed "wow, good DW icons, surprising!" comments on all good DW icon posts I've seen) by people who've never commented. But with fic you can't do that! Laaame. Obviously we should mind-track so you can know how many people read and enjoyed your fic but DIDN'T comment. I know I read fic a lot but don't comment, often because I don't have the time. Or don't say anything constructive because I don't have the time. I DO try to leave "GREATLY ENJOYED, AWESOME WORK" or something on ones I like but. Such lame comments. lol. BUT I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL, IS THE POINT.

Facebook telling me 'relationship status: in a relationship' still stabs me brightly and suddenly everytime I see it, four years later. SELF, WHEN WILL YOU GET OVER THIS.

Ugggh if you are like me, NEVER. Whenever I go to the facebook page of my first crush (from when I was 12 years old, lollll) and see that he's IN A RELATIONSHIP and his about me is something like "I've been blessed by God with a wonderful and god-fearing girlfriend" I'm like NOOOOOOOO WHYYYYYYY (and also a little bit of "eww" because, umm, GOD-FEARING, really, is that a quality one looks for?). And I even HAVE a boyfriend who I'm really into. So I wish I could tell you it would solve itself but my experience unfortunately suggests we just have to live with it. IT TOTALLY SUCKS, RIGHT?

Pianos may fall on heads (HI REM!) but I doubt much carrying of them is done in general.

I guess I should turn my 'crazy slut' knob up to twenty. But I have so many other things to do with my life! *pout*

I even went so far as to draft a post outlining my ideal comment for textual rendering purposes, but I realised that was nooby and besides, would not work. Someone made a point that it's all about the frequency of posting, which makes sense on some visceral level. I've written three fics for bandom in a whole YEAR. Lame.

I wish mine was all about the god fearing! I could easily move on then. Sadly he is still Mister Perfecto - in my eyes at least. D:
