Things that I think are FUCKING LAME

Things that I think are FUCKING LAME


  • unclever "comment on this" replacements.

  • when people don't put in a decent bio. Or worse, when they say "if you want to know more about me, read my journal." No shit, dumbass. I'm looking at your bio because I don't want to waste my time reading your whole freaking journal, I want a synopsis.

  • when people post song quotes. Bo-ring. I won't say I haven't done it, because I have, but never more than a few lines, and I was probably drunk or some shit.

  • when I make a list like this, and then do something I said was lame, and somebody's like, "hey!" First of all, I didn't say "don't ever do this," that's fucking retarded. Who am I to tell you what to do? I didn't say no one should ever do it ever, I just said that, in my opinion, it's fucking lame. Second of all, I can do whatever the fuck I want to do! It's not annoying to me when I do it.

  • when I make a list like this, and people try to talk me out of my opinions. Dude, I think that what you're doing is fucking lame! So what? What the hell do you care what I think? You really think you're going to JUSTIFY me into thinking "oh wait, that IS cool, I was wrong!"?

  • when people make the title of a movie a link, and it's linked to the page at imdb. Like I can't do that shit myself. If the link points to a site specifically for the movie, though, then that's okay in my book.

  • when people link something, and they don't make it open in a new window.

  • when people say something like "This has really got me thinking lately" and we are forced to CLICK the link in order to know what they're talking about. I think that's rude.

  • when people leave a comment that fucking sucks. I think that crappy, boring comments take away from good, well-written, interesting posts.
    • when people say some shit like "me too lol!" If I tell a story about ripping a hole in the butt of my pants, and then you tell a funny story about when you ripped a hole in the butt of your pants and you were wearing your Care Bears underwear and all the kids made fun of you and you ran crying from school and weren't watching where you were going and fell down a well, then fucking A man, that's great. But if I tell a story about ripping a hole in the butt of my pants and you said "yeah, that happened to me once too! It sucked, I know, right?" then that's fucking lame and a week later, when you're not paying attention, I'm going to DELETE it.

    • when people hit the wrong link to leave a comment, and they end up replying to the original post when their intent was to reply to a specific comment, or vice versa.

  • when people ask questions they could have easily found the answers to, and it's obvious they didn't even make an attempt.

  • when people sign their comments.

  • when people sign their comments AND leave a link to their website.

  • when people use attractive famous people as their icons. WTF? I use smart and/or witty famous people, because I wish I were smart and/or witty, and want my comments to sneakily seem that way without you realizing why. What does "Gwen Stefani" say, though, really? I just don't get it.

  • when people use the lj-user tag, but they don't use the person's username, they screw with the code to put in some other name. I think that the bold and that icon are ugly, and I only use them when I'm speaking very LiveJournal-y.

  • when people are QUITE OBVIOUSLY intentionally putting obscure songs as their "current music". I generally think "current music" is a useless factoid anyway, but for Christ's sake, be fucking honest. Don't type in the fucking B-side to the import single released only on Alpha Centauri just because you think that gives you street cred. It doesn't. It just makes you look pretentious.

  • when people say shit like "I'll be busy all day, I won't be able to post! I'm sorry!" or "I'm sorry I wasn't able to post yesterday, I'll do better today." What? First of all, no one's going to miss you for one fucking DAY, no apology necessary, big guy. Secondly, even if people DID miss you, you'll look MUCH cooler if you act all humble and pretend that you didn't think anyone'd notice. I'm like the least humble person in the universe and even I know that.

  • when people feel like they have to respond to every single comment anyone leaves on their journal. If you have something more to add, or a conversation to continue, or a question to answer, then fine. But you can tell when some people go down the list, answering every fucking thing. I have to read all that now! Don't waste my time!

  • when people don't tell stories often enough.

  • when people put actions in asterisks. *thinks that's fucking lame*. I think that's cheating. Use the language to get your point across, that's what it's here for.

  • fucking anime emoticons, with the fucking whiskers and carrot-eyes. I must admit to using emoticons on occasion; it's tough to get tone across sometimes, in text, particularly when you're saying something short, like a comment. Emoticons in posts usually aren't necessary, though. They shouldn't be, anyhow. Use the language to get your point across, that's what it's here for.

  • icons that have letters that blink in succession. Doesn't it bother you that your icon looks like everybody else's?

  • icons that are blurry, because they've been resized sloppily. I don't know anything about graphics editors either, asswipe. Ask questions and click a lot of buttons and LEARN. Also, here's a tip: the Sharpen tool. Or filter, or whatever the fuck it is. See? I don't fucking know. But I know how to USE it.

  • when people talk about their fucking DAY. What the hell do I care? Tell a fucking story, dammit.

  • I'm TOTALLY not done, but it's time to go home.

      Today is Thursday. Settlement on the sale of our house is Tuesday. I took the dog for a walk today, and I started to get a little emotional.

    • The Word for World is Forest

      So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
