Mom comes home, says she'll make chicken fries for herself and fish sticks for me, I reply, while busy drawing something, "Okay."

It was an absent-minded okay. Thought nothing of it or how I said it. But she says, "Say it with enthusiasm, or I won't cook anything for you." (She does this every now and again when she believes I'm not enthusiastic enough about something)

Being a particularly shitty mood, I said, "okay" again but with a little sarcasm. She retorts, "You should really take a step outside of yourself and see how rude you are sometimes."

Fuck, I can't even brood by myself whenever I feel the need to anymore without it being wrong. I'm not an intentionally rude person and she knows this. I don't understand why "okay" absolutely must be said with enthusiasm anyway. Or why whenever she's in a ridiculously fantastic mood I have to mirror it. Or what the hell was wrong with my first "okay."

And she's one to point the finger, with the way she treats my grandfather all the time. She is frequently rude when she confronts him.

Needed to vent, things have been bottling up and I didn't feel like bringing this into the negativity thread because this was closer (i.e. I was lazy) than the negativity thread.

Yeah, that kind of thing is always uncomfortable for both parties. My mother tells it to me on occassion, and I actually demand that enthusiasm of people sometimes (in very specific circumstances). Example. In certain situations, ARM can be kind of shy. You know what shy people do? Avoid eye contact and speak low and softly. It always happens at the worst of times. Like with people he needs to establish a good first impression with (like teachers or family friends).

As for your mom though, I don't see that justified. It really does feel like "I'm radiant today, and you're not going to mess up my mood!". I don't understand it when people are hypersensitive about precisely the way you say something.

Apologies for my late reply Dinny D:

Yeah agree with you there. I got her to talk about it later on that day, turned out it was a more of 'she could tell something was wrong with me but didn't want to ask' ordeal. Evidently she doesn't like asking people if they're okay because she's afraid they might bark back at her. Understandable enough. I told her she can ask me anytime if she wants.

It's all good.

Example. In certain situations, ARM can be kind of shy. You know what shy people do? Avoid eye contact and speak low and softly. It always happens at the worst of times. Like with people he needs to establish a good first impression with (like teachers or family friends).

Aw. I know how that goes, I'm pretty shy myself. My boyfriend probably feels similar sentiments to yours. Whenever he introduces me to people (maybe this is because he'll yak your brains off without hardly ever pausing) he does most of the talking. Even if I want to get a word in, he already beat me to it. He's never complained about my nature, but at his friend's wedding he said several times, "She's not outgoing like me/us. She's mousy. etc." he especially likes using that last label. Which doesn't apply 100% of the time.

In truth, we're both about the same amount of shy as we are outgoing, but... he's the one that draws lines. He admits he's also shy, but covers it up with talking. He has most people convinced too.

Problem is, shy people don't become socially confident over night, especially if it has been their nature for a long time. Trying to impose expectations on them... don't think that does much. Or using "you should be this/that;" no one wants to be told what to do. Same thing for when people tell you to "be happier" or "smile!" it probably just makes them angrier/more withdrawn. Going back on the main point.

Fitting, because we have a cricket infestation here at the moment. I was walking around the CBD of my city, y'know, where all the cars and skyscrapers are and stuff, and I had to get ARM to pluck crickets out of my cleavage four times. I seriously don't know how they ended up landing in there without fail.

What's everyone been up to?

I don't know if you guys remember about the short film I was cast in, but here is a photo of everyone, including the crew:


They're still editing it... no idea when it will be done.

I'm not sure if you can see the photo because you might have to be logged in on Facebook... I tried to get the external link though.

By the way, dinny, the guy all the way to the right had a really long ponytail and I thought of you.

Bye.

You were right to! Dini <3 ponitale.

That picture is awesome, it's a nice and variable cast. No issues viewing it without a FB. I'd love to see the final product if it gets up on the internets.

What have I been doing? Hm.. Not that much. The most exciting thing I can think of is getting pet rats. They're adorable, I have to take photos later: one's a grey hooded rat, the other is a brown hooded rat. Both boys. Both have very big personalities.

My cat's deathly afraid of them.

And trying to keep ARM entertained if that counts as something. He's never too far from me. He just walked in.

Maybe caught in a funny moment. Don't be so critical. She's really cool. And she has her dream job (producer of a very popular TV show in Canada).

Dinny, are you in school? How's law school going for you?

Read this intriguing question & wanted to pick all y'all's brains:

When you read a book that doesn't indicate the color of a character's skin, do you automatically assume they're white? Or is the race not a consideration for you? Should writers include a description of skin color, or should it be left up to the readers to fill in as part of their mental image of that character?

What do you think?


Question brought to you by a woman who wrote in to a writing newspaper complaining that writers assume their characters are white.

Yea, I AZZume the character is a white girl or white boy. It's because whites are the majority in America.

Update: The film I was in is getting shown in the Atlantic Canada film festival (the short film part)! I feel like I was too nervous during filming to do a good job, but it's in there anyway!!

Silly, that's not me. That's the assistant producer (and she's awesome). I'm all the way to the left.

Completely random, but I'm still trying to figure out whether the mermaid in Dinny's avatar has really big nipples, or really small breast cup... things. Which look like they'd fall off in real life unless you had some glue on them or your boobs were magnetic and so was the bra-thing.

That would feel so weird.

Mermaids must cast magic spells on their bras. I'm convinced.

I don't even know, myself. @_@

I usually depict mermaids braless, though. Never understood why mermaids would require clothing at all.

Wags, you slay me. I was LOLing for half an hour straight when I read your post.

Dinny: Wouldn't bras serve a useful purpose considering water's rather...buoyant nature when it comes to these parts?



OT: Why aren't the whatchamacallits not showing up on the main forum page? (The ones that let you know whether there's a new post in a particular forum.) Also, why aren't the buttons that appear in every person's posts showing either? & now that I notice it, some of the emoticons aren't showing up.

Does anybody still check this? What's everybody up to? I moved to another part of Canada to study space science in grad school. Just got here a couple of days ago so I can't say much more on that. That's it for now. Razz
