Random statement of purpose, etc.

I did something that you shouldn't do unless you're a glutton for punishment: I googled my user name. I had no idea how far-reaching that ridiculous Twilight/LDS comparison spread. I kinda knew, but... it's over 3 million hits as of this posting. O_O As a result, I have a lot of new traffic here, and I know that people can be lazy and not want to hunt around for stuff, so I'll re-state some things:

  • I do not pretend to be an essayist, a member of the literati, or that this blog is anything but a source of personal amusement and camaraderie. (Nutshell: I ain't a genius, and I ain't claiming to be one.)

  • I like to be ridiculous and laugh. I also like to cuss. A lot.

  • I don't have an ax to grind, this is just my journal, where I like to talk about things what crop up in my think box. And I'm fairly certain that's what journals are for, yes?

  • I have a great rack and pretty ankles. Contrary to how I may come across here, I'm fairly nice and likeable with occasional moments of bitchery just like everyone else, I suppose.

  • I don't automatically friend people back, and I think it's a little weird when complete strangers demand that I do. Jeez, buy me dinner before you expect to get a little, you know? (lol) It's a reading list. Just like how you don't read every section of a newspaper, I don't read every journal/blog on the intertubenets. If that's upsetting to you, you might need to breathe more deeply. Or not read me, whatever keeps your blood pressure level. Or you know, start talking with me so we can get to know each other online. That's really easy; I like talking.

  • I try to answer every comment I receive, but it's not always possible. It's not meant as a slight, I just have lots going on in my actual life, and some things slip through the cracks. Just ask that one child I think I gave birth to... I feed it, so I guess I birthed it. Where did that kid go? We were on a pier - wide spaces - loud splash - and something happened. Huh.

  • I'm attempting to publish a book. It may never happen. It's specific, and it's meant to be funny (and teach you some things all sneaky like.) You can read first draft excerpts here, which is also where I keep the majority of my religious-discussion posts.

  • I go back and forth on whether or not to mark this LJ as "adult concepts." For one, I don't like that I have to define my LJ as that, since it's not always "adult." But then, I don't want to get in trouble for dropping F bombs and laughing about bad pr0n, either. Subject to change, I guess I should say.

  • I listened to two Australian guys talk about Twilight last night on a podcast, and not only are they funny, they state that everything they needed to know about Twilight, they learned from me. How freaking cool (and crazy!) is that?

  • I like tequila. And nachos. Both of which sound delicious right about now. Lunch?

I did that and found out there's another fiveandfour out there. She seems to be completely different from me and lives on the other side of the world, so I don't suppose the two of us will get confused too often. Still and all, I found it weird. I had a certain logic in choosing the name, so I couldn't help but wonder how she came up with the same one. (I haven't googled the name in awhile...now I'm tempted to do it again, dammit!)

If you wanna really trip out, use www.searchme.com and you can SEE the pages where you're linked, which is really cool. (edited to add that I just put their widget on my user info page.)

There are two other Stoney321s out in the ether but they're not actively online much. I'd love to just be "stoney" but the name has a squatter on it.

I think I 'met' you when someone pointed out something you'd posted about some bit of prejudice concerning a tv program, someone who had a 'garden' business, and an objection to the gay relationship portrayed on said program.

I admire you because you say what you think, and you say it well.

Make that podcast. I think "C".

Have a shot of tequila for me - I may be snowed in at work tonight!

Ah, the Outside Pride hate mail, yes, I remember that. Yeesh, I was innundated with comments on that one - I was completley unprepared for that!

Shot of tequila for you, check. Better make it two. ;)

I may have said this before
but it's been a while and it bears repeating: I think I love you. You are made of The Most Awesomest Awesome of All. It is good that I am vindicated in my opinion of you.

C: All of the above. DO IT.

Tequila and nachos are always a valid lunch, and I don't even drink tequila anymore. Stupid spending formative years living on the border of Mexico. UGH.

Random: I've been painting my cousin's new house and thinking of you. ♥

*takes note* I need my voice back to normal (had a cough and I'm very Kathleen Turner Overdrive right now.)

Aw, painting = me! Funny, I first read that as "partying" and was equally as touched, LOL.

It's EXTREMELY cool. But not surprising, since your posts on topics like that are always so awesome. You are famous on da interwebs!

OMG, do the letters thing. OMG.

Also, I do not like when the people insisting that you friend them whine. A-like so:

Friender: Pleeeeeeeese? Pleeeeeeeese? Pleeeeeeeese friend meeeeee?

Me: No. ::stab::

Have purchased everything to copy your pork roast recipe. I drooled all over my grocery list. Luckily, I was alone at the time.

I cannot WAIT to go read OhMyHeck, so, forthwith, I shall not wait. ::squishes you::

Oooh, hope the pork turns out great for you, too. And really: the longer you roast it, the better it gets!

I like your journal(s) just the way they are, I wouldn't change a thing. I did discover, upon web searching my screen name, a whole bunch of entries into places that I had forgotten existed...but no other person who is just like me.

Jan. 8th, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
Of course there's no other person just like you! We're all special snowflakes. :D

Did you hear about what's going up here in Canada?

:) Saw it on the front page of the local newspaper and thought of you, haha.

I did! I need to add an ETA to spare y'all from coding on my behalf. ;)

Thank you for thinking of me, though.

There isn't that many kseenaa's out there. Gladly. Sadly though my nick that I wanted to have, KSena. And that people call me is taken. By a russian. :-P

Bah, it's frustrating when you want a handle, but it's already taken. I wish I could nab the "stoney" journal, but there's a guy that's sat on it for years without updating.

I feel privileged to be on the fringes of being friends with you. *nods*

Ahahaha, I'm SEW AWESUM. You can kiss your screen when it's on my user info page. I shall allow it this time.

I stumbled upon your LJ through various arcane means. Your Twlight reviews made me waste a bunch of time at work, mostly trying to keep myself from breaking out in hysterical cackling. I most certainly will be adding you to my flist!

Welcome aboard! I'm really relaxed here, lurk, comment, whatever, it's all good.

OMG PLEZ FRIEND ME! I will die without your friending touch, I will be invalidated, drifting about the internet alone and unloved. Only you by hitting a button on LJ which means you may or may not be reading my posts give me the acceptance that I've always craved for. Having your name on my userinfo post will instantly lift me up into the A List and I'll be invited out to all the cool Internet Parties that nobody tells me about.

It's not that I just want you as my friend, because god knows friendship is instantly born by putting a complete stranger on your reading list, but you could make or break me on LJ. Using you I can be introduced to all the IT Girls and become one myself, popular, beautiful, mainlining thousands of grams of comments every day.

And the way to win your heart, to make you realise that friending me is the smart thing to do: whining caps in broken english and passive aggressive guilt trips. \o/ FOR THE WIN!
stoney321
Jan. 8th, 2009 08:51 pm (UTC)
IF I DON'T KNOW YOU'RE READING ME, HOW WILL I KNOW I'M ACCEPTED???

Your whole comment is made of puppies rolled in glitter, ran through a sausage maker, and fashioned into a bunny-shaped cake. (They grind up better than bunnies, who knew?)

YOU, my friend, are for the win.

You did? Which one? [/narcissist]

Hahaha, how sad is it that I practiced different voices last night? SO SAD.

Oooh, way to go, lady! Melted carrots on lettuce is no substitute, though. :(

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
