|01:22 am - i swear by the moon and the stars in the sky|
i realized today that i swear a lot. the kid i was working with swore exactly once all day, when he referred to the especially well buried tires as "those shits." he wasn't captain purity or anything, either; talking about drinking and girls and drugs and what have you. he just didn't swear. this made me more aware of what i was saying, and ya know, i swear a lot. i don't think there's anything particular wrong with that, morally or socially or anything, but on the other hand if i'm offending people that'd kinda suck. any thoughts?
np: live - ghost
Who fucking cares if you offend people. Those fucking people can kiss your ass.
hahahaah i love you lyzi.
have no fear, you never offend me. except when you refuse my advances. cash advances.
well maybe if you lowered your fees
I don't find it offensive. However, I do think it makes poeple sound unintelligent because they choose a weak vocabulary to express emotions.
sometimes swear words are the most powerful vocab tools you have.
I don't think that's necessarily true. I still manage to sound intelligent while BEATING PEOPLE DOWN verbally.
but swearing is fun. sometimes i swear like a sailor (i go through phases) my sister has this way sheltered friend (seriously, shes 17 and i had to explain to her what a dildo is) and well i think i offend her a bit.
i also have a tendency to swear a lot in front of people's lil bros and sisters, i don't mean to it just happens.
oh and dan - if you get his before you leave for placebo - PLEASE bring welcome to the dollhouse back. its due tomorrow (friday). thanks. do it, or --
and where the cost=lobotomy
i brought it in last night. i never even got a chance to watch it :/ damn my busy life

my first live journal response ever! wahoo.
I just wanted to say that I fucking swear all the time, but never directly AT people. I am way too much of a pansy for real confrontation. I think the vast majority of people would be offended if you directly called them a cocksucker, but way less people care if you called someone ELSE a cocksucker in the middle of a tangent. Granted, some people do care, but those people are fucking uptight. I saw a censored of Good Will Hunting on TV the other day, and it just wasn't the same.

censored versions of movies can be really hilarious sometimes, when they try to dub them and screw it all up
you should get a journal. then you can have snazzy photos like all us cool kids
