This is for ambrmerlinus because he is genuinely nice to me all the time and while I can't for the life of me divine what masochistic force constantly drives him to come into contact with me and thus punish his intellect and good sense, I can't say I don't appreciate it.

Which makes me a sight sorry I've been such a churlish bastard pretty much all the time.

I am full of appreciation. My cup runneth over with appreciation, man.

I never really got why people always get so up in arms about using "big words".
Everyone puts so much emphasis on NOT using them so you don't look like some kind of over-pretentious douche. Or that you can't use "big words" because you'll probably use them wrong.
I have like, an ordered list of things I find wrong with this approach:

- Writing already exceeds your daily allotment for being pretentious. You can't help it, it's the act itself. I'm doing it right now. Right goddamn now I am worse than every art school student combined- it's the unrestrained force of 4,000 dudes with gelled hair typing noisily at Starbucks.
- You're probably never going to learn to use a word (or anything really) right until you fuck up and use it wrong first.
I'm sure everyone thinks that, oh no, if you just try hard you can circumvent the "fucking up" part. But really, isn't the best learning the kind you do when you balls it all up?

It's in order 'cause there are only two that I can put into words that aren't "hnngggghrr" which is a predicament I find myself in daily. Whatever. Two is easier to read.

It's a damn shame 'cause I think too many people are being scared off of using words and seriously, some of those words out there are really fucking awesome. I've always been a rabid supporter of trying on words like underwear at a thrift store- having fun and not worrying about the bacteria that may or may be burrowing into your genetic information this very instant. Words are super cool and super awesome and the more words you know, the better you're going to be able to express yourself.

I never saw the harm in finding new words- especially since it can lead to the discovery of The Perfect Goddamn Word. When you find it, you will abuse it. It will sound right on your tongue, have the EXACT PERFECT inflection and subtext and it will mean exactly what you fucking want it to mean. This is a wonderful discovery and will do unspeakable things to your writing. Dirty, nasty, unspeakable things.

But no, every day someone has to be out there working hard to make sure you feel bad about using a word more arduous than "arduous".
Like you should be ashamed at making someone use a damned dictionary for once.

I'm not sure why I'm being quite so vocal about this little quandary.
I just can't stop thinking about words. Man, I love words.

Which one food would you choose to ban from existence, and why?


Veal.

There's something terrifying about the fact that it's still food.

What is your opinion of relationships where there is a significant age difference between partners?

It worries me how few people exclude the whole "Adults of consenting age" thing with their "Fuck age, age isn't nothing but a number" diatribe.
Turns out, no! There is nothing okay with a relationship between a 16 year old and a 26 year old.

If you could replace any actor/actress in a film with someone else, who would you replace, and why?

Keanu Reeves in any film with anybody else.
Ditto Nicholas Cage.

It was "When was the last time you cried?"
Ten minutes ago, when I read the answer "Marley and Me" or "Anime" more than once.

Man, I almost forgot how much I hate summer.

I still have to give up the rats but I can't think about that too much or I'll start being a Debbie Downer again.
I also still can't wake up/function/think/emote for hours everyday. Thanks, modern medicine! You my bro.

I need to remember to actually use my LiveJournal, ever since I had that weird little spaz attack and burned my last two paper ones. Were they really that bad? I guess I'll never know. I forgot to read them first, I guess.

My room is clean and that is nothing short of miraculous.

I can't find my scanner. How did I lose a whole scanner? Sweet Odin. Now I can't upload any of my art.

P.S. I am freaking out a little right now. I should never be allowed to google medications. It's been well over 6 months since I've been able to coax my uterus into behaving and I almost forgot about that whole "endometrial hyperplasia" bit that is going to threaten my every waking moment if I don't get it checked out and fixed.
This is accompanied by the fact that "getting this shit checked out" is part of a series of common procedures that I've grown to be nothing less than weeping-in-a-corner terrified of.
This is ALSO accompanied by the usual, "WTF doctors why do I feel like I'm always doing the bleedin' work for you?"
