I'm tired and it's making me feel like an idiot because I'm cranky about it.
I'm awake early, and I need more sleep to do the things I need to do today, but thinking about the things is keeping me awake.
Dear particular writer; please stop putting in your porn stories' summary "You have to read this story to find out what happens next!" We KNOW what's going to happen next, because we are not idiots and the answer is the same thing every time.
When I come up with a catty remark which I know is highly offensive and entirely inappropriate to use but it's going to keep going round in my head until I say it somewhere. Is there a thread for getting comments like that out where no one who doesn't want to see them doesn't have to? Memory Hole, maybe?
So this is an incredibly minor thing but it grates on me; someone on Tumblr mistook Lanque's bullet point about "still has a livechurnal" for a female genitalia euphemism. Apart from the fact that I doubt even Hussie would talk about a teenager's genitals in literally the first sentence introducing them, and the fact that that would be the most disgusting euphemism I've heard since "panty tarantula", am I really so old that the current fan generation hasn't even heard of Livejournal now?
It was on the decline since at least Strikethrough and the Russia purchase, and a lot of younger fandom seems to have started with Tumblr and Instagram and wherever. A lot of the old fandom comms have disappeared by now, so it doesn't have the archival power, either.
I still don’t understand how fandom exists on instagram. how??? I don’t use it but that platform seems even worse than twitter for fandom activities
I don’t wanna go to work I want to go to sleep
I know LJ's been declining for years, but it makes me feel really old to know there are people in fandom now who apparently haven't even heard its name.
Everything else about your comment aside, I need to know in what context someone’s genitals were called something so atrocious.
I don't remember most of it, it was just a thing from Livejournal's "weepingcock" community (collecting terrible sex descriptions).
Annoyed by myself because I just discovered wish and while I'll be getting a lot of neat/helpful stuff eventually, I wasn't paying attention to shipping and I accidentally spent like 30 dollars. I am frustrate
I keep having stress nightmares and waking up after three hours asleep, staying awake for about an hour at 3-4 am, then going back to sleep and sleeping until 2 pm
Been up all night with pain from scratched gum OW OW OW
We've only been in this apartment a few months, and my father's already talking about how he wants to move out of state to Kentucky.
Right-wing edgelord blogs. Bluh.
I don't like the Troll Call ancestors/dancestors Poinko drew. They're not canon, but I'm really hoping they won't be because they're not how I was picturing some of them and I'm attached to my own ideas. On a less pouty note, I'm not entirely happy with how the fat one is the ancestor of the troll who's supposed to be creepy and laughable, but maybe I'm just oversensitive. I mean, objectively the art's good and everything but I already had ideas and these threw me off and I'm grumpy.
It's putting my teeth on edge that the entire first page of posts when I search for a certain Harper Lee book are tagged with "how to kill a mockingbird".
A customer pulled his mask down to lick his fingers so he could count the money he was about to hand to my coworker. Why????
