had a pleasant enough evening today. finished the hellish tasks by 9pm and spent the rest of the evening perusing the internet. as i've told claree/lalapot earlier, the internet is bad, very very bad. it's almost midnight and i must turn in soon but i can't log off until i've updated my blurty. i've made a resolve to record more of my thoughts-- be them boring, depressing or shallow (as you can see, i always veer towards the negative).
visited my lj, tried to drop a word or two in but didn't feel comfortable about it anymore. funny, i never thought i'd appreciate my blurty more than my lj but i guess in some way, i wouldn't have made a blurty at all if i were very happy with my original journal. one nice thing about lj though, is the larger variety of people over there. i stumbled upon an interesting entry that's been circulating for days, maybe even weeks now. it's the best damn rant i've read in a long time. i probably like it because the topic is close to home but it could also be because her angst is just so amazingly well-written. wish i could've expressed myself that way when i was surrounded by the long-haired Rosas and Isabels of this world...sigh, teenage angst..it never really disappears, does it..?
anyway, here's a quotation from that entry, it's by jelly_donut it won't do any good to click here though, she's on LJ not blurty.
maybe i'll have four pieces of toast instead of two. maybe i'll have real butter instead of margarine. fuck you!
and guess what? if i can be confident with my three digits of a-s-s and my cellulite thighs, then damnit, so can you!
there is nothing special about me. i repeat, not a goddamn thing.
wait, maybe there is something special about me.
i'm supple, you assholes. and i like it that way.
check her out, i think she made LJ history by scoring the most comments on a post ever. she's some fatgirl advocate...im not really inclined to agree with all her points because, honestly, she may be comfortable being obese, but, umm..i think i'll pass. i do enjoy her writing style though, and the way she drives her point across.
here's her site : http://www.livejournal.com/users/jelly_donut/112991.html?page=1
