|07:21 pm - perhaps pershmaps|
last night, for the first time in quite a while, i listened to music (devin townsend - terria). really listened- eyes closed, lean back, headphones. it was lovely, and very calming. except when the cats jumped on me.
tomorrow at 4pm i have an appointment to donate plasma. well, not donate so much as sell. they pay $45/wk for 2 donations. almost 200 bucks a month to sit and bleed! i'll bring some books and such, it will be good vampiric fun
words can infect me. if i read something with a strong voice, i will find myself thinking/speaking like it. it barely even matters what they're saying- a sad story told by a happy person will be understanding and optimistic; a happy story told by a sad person will be cynical and miserable. this is why i try to curtail my wallowing in (artistic) misery. this is also part of why i like reading some of your journals so much. phairbear and theashifaction come to mind.
this thought brought to you by the catcher in the rye, which i poked my nose into a few days ago, and it made me mopey. holden jerkface caulfield.
okcupid just asked me if a girl who's slept with 100 guys is a bad person. my first response: how the hell did she do that?! and what were her standards? (and don't worry, mine progressive friends, it asked the same question about a guy soon after. nothing in between though. i don't think dating sites believe in such conditions)
no definites yet, but current planning is that next month i will put in my 30 days for my paper route (2 weeks isn't good enough for this place), and me and lauri will split her route. i'll be making the same money and putting in the same hours (on average), but only working half as often. like, i'm on for a week and then she is. or whatever length of time we're looking for. so expect visits! who wants a dan?
i have so much i want to do, and i don't do any of it. that NEEDS to end. END. i will do many wonderful things.

If I had sex with Jon Stewart, I'd like to think that you icon would accurately depict the event. Amazing.

BOY AND HIS BLOB ICON YAY!!
I tried playing a rom of that game a while ago and it was SO lame, but when I was a kid it was my favorite.
that seems to be everyone's reaction to that icon. i should probably re-play the game sometime and see if i hate it now. IT WAS GOOD 15 YEARS AGO. you could trick him into eating the ketchup jellybean and he turned into a brick wall.
this is also part of why i like reading some of your journals so much.
Aw, that's sweet. Especially because I always worry about being dull or masturbatory. Not literally masturbatory, of course -- there's really no point in worrying about that, is there?
If one lost one's virginity at 16 and was single (or at least non-monogamous) most of the time until age 28 or 29, one could rack up 100 sex partners by sleeping with ten or fewer people a year. Considering I've gone on dates with probably 25 to 30 people in the past twelve months, I could have hit ten even while maintaining pretty selective standards.
My friends and I have often observed, however, that staying single most of the time and dating frequently until one's late twenties or early thirties definitely seems to be a sociological phenomenon unique to big cities, or maybe even unique to New York. People in other parts of the country seem to pair off younger and with more frequency than they do here, which means that you'd have to be whole lot sluttier to do it with 100 people, just to fit all those people into your more compressed life-schedule.
dull is the last thing you have to worry about. the only way you could get more interesting is if people mysteriously died everywhere you went, Murder She Wrote style. i would say you're only masturbatory to the extent that other people aren't interested, so that doesn't apply either. and you haven't posted scandalous photos in way too long to be literally masturbatory.
i think you are definitely right in your observation. also, things like okcupid make it a whole lot easier to find those 30 dates per year. there was always personals ads, i suppose, but in my head only dirty old men use those. and the one i read once that was specifically looking for someone with extensive toenail fungus.
if every girl i've pursued in my life had instantly stripped and gone to town, i still wouldn't be near 100 i don't think

in college, this guy would come along and post flyers on the wall basically offering to be someone's sugar daddy if they'd sleep with him. we ripped them down because they were creepy, but he'd put them in the paper too. toenail fungus takes the cake though.

OMG I REMEMBER HIM! he was on craig's list too! and ljdrama!
and a dan you shall have!
I shall have to find you on okcupid. It's a fun site, but has been rather pathetic for connecting with local folk (internet date searchers tend to be... more boring than the kind of person who's already out with friends... don't know what that says about me.) And I have a lack of "real friends" on there.
