5 June – Ignoring Comments

Are there any comment sections online that you refuse to read?

Generally speaking I usually avoid comments sections because past experience has shown me that a) there are too many basic bitches out there who don’t understand what comment sections are actually for; and b) there are some ranty bitches out there who feel compelled to go out of their way to write a mini thesis on something completely unrelated.

Daily Prompt: Born to Be With You

Got a soul-mate and/or a best friend? What is it about that person that you love best? Describe them in great detail — leave no important quality out.

I know that when you’re in a relationship with somebody, there’s an expectation for you to write about them and explain how they are your soul mate and your best friend… but I don’t really want to do that… Don’t get me wrong, I could easily write about him, but I choose not too simply of of sheer defiance.

Instead, I’ll talk about my other soul mate – Crazy Cat Lady.

We have been working together for a few years now, and developed a great relationship / friendship. She’s one of those people who just gets me. If I turn up to work and she’s not there, then I feel rather depressed. Without her there, I have nobody to really talk to, or interact with. She’s the one that allows me to be neurotic and random. And I know that I do the same with her. I guess you could call it separation anxiety.

I’ve been away from work for the past week, and when I returned the other day, some of the other staff had commented how unhappy she had been feeling, and how much she had missed me. She is also just as random as I am, and when you’re so used to having that particular type of daily interaction with somebody, it’s something that helps get you through the day; it helps to subdue the rage; it’s something that we both look forward to, and also miss terribly when the other is not at work.

I found out today that Crazy Cat Lady has a few weeks of annual leave coming up, and it only really hit home this evening that she’s not going to be around. It’s undoubtedly going to be quite a hard few weeks to get through because I’ll have nobody to be random with. I’ll have nobody to talk gibberish too. I’ll have nobody to be neurotic with. I guess I can find solace in  knowing that although she’ll be away, she’ll still be checking her email, and she’ll continue to forward me links from her newsreader – usually videos about cats or something.

She really is one of my best friends, and I can’t imagine not having her in my life.

 

And if you’re reading this, Magoo, well golly, you’re the bees knees, and I think that you’re pretty swell. Now, how bout we have a giant cup of tea and three-hundred biscuits and talk about cats… and the salmon… in the Yemen… or you can just geeeeettttt oooouuutttt

Feb 5: Alien Blogger

You meet an alien and need to explain to it blogging. Explain what blogging is (and what blogging means to you) without ever using the word “blog.”

Well, obviously this alien being isn’t a threat, and is actually nice and civil and doesn’t want to destroy humanity or steal me away for a fun filled night probing… which, let’s face it, shouldn’t really be much of a threat to any gay man, considering that generally we would call the same thing with another guy ‘Friday night’.

So I will also assume that this alien can both speak and understand english so that I don’t have to deal with over-the-top hand gestures, or resort to playing some kind of weird version of charades…

is it a book, or a fil’um

So this is a phenomenon that was created kind of a way to express one’s thoughts and opinions online to a much wider audience, rather than just a persons immediate social circle. Many people have different types of these sites. Some use it as a person diary; some use it to write reviews of movies, restaurants, clothing etc; some use it to display their cooking skills, or some simply want to share cat videos with the world.

Not every site is the same as the next, as everybody is different, and each person has something different that they want to share with the rest of the world, or at least, whoever is actually taking the time to read what they’ve posted.

For me, I use it as a platform to get into a habit of writing regularly, as I have aspirations of writing something much bigger, and more in depth, but I find that even just the basic task of writing daily to be quite a challenge a lot of the time, so I don’t know how I’m going to manage to write something with more substance to it. I actually have two of these sites that I use, one is for my daily writing challenges, and the other is for documenting all the stupid interactions that I have with people. It’s like a  play-by-play of the stupid things that people say and do either to me, or around me, that make me want to bang my head against a wall in utter frustration.
