Website update

I know, it’s shocking, but I’ve actually added a Random Meandering Thought to my site, the first this year.

I guess I’ve not felt the need to add too much to that portion of my site, with LJ embedded in my homepage. 🙂

Theory of maturity

So, here’s my thoughts on maturity and sexuality. Anyone who has let their children grow up to be teenagers, let me know if I’m in the right ballpark here.

When kids are little, they don’t understand sex and it is a non-issue to them.
As pre-teens, they know it’s something icky and don’t want to get involved, hiding their eyes during kissing scenes on TV and such.
As pubescents and throughout high school, sex is something they know is supposed to be the biggest deal in the world, but it’s all supposed to be secret knowledge. Anyone trying to be less than 100% reverent of all things regarding nudity and sexuality is automatically icky. Reverting back to being eight years old.
Between (varies by person) 17 and 24, sex is a great toy and one yearns for quantity and variety over quality. Relationships are secondary to physicality.
Around 25 or 30 (some of my friends ain’t there yet), human behavior is realized to be much greater than one particular facet, and then truly adult attitudes form about things in life, to include but not limited to sex and nudity etc.

So, how’s that? Seems to match my observations of people through life, and just a little inspired by the children populating the adult sections of LJ this week…

Kids today

OK, I try to have a little fun (on a dare from my SO) on the NP community, and some jackass has to spend the greater part of her day harassing me for what she perceives as my physical defects. Why join a group that you think is (in her creative words) lame? Further, why bother engaging in a battle of wits when you are obviously unarmed? I just checked her LJ page, and it’s friends-only. Probably tired of the people she harangues jumping back on her. True cowardice…

This is just my first entree into the constantly waging battle between mean-spirited losers and the (thankfully much more numerous) loving free spirits seen on LJ way too frequently. Apparently there are a large number of people, all of them about 15 years old it seems, who don’t feel as if their day is complete unless they can abuse a random human that crosses their path. I’m astounded at the level of immaturity that people have, and yet they are just barely smart enough to run a computer. Amazing.

Anyway, I’m not gonna play over there anymore. I don’t want to stop getting email notifications of post responses in my journal and others, but I’m not going to subject myself to some little kid’s hyperactive attacks against me either. Maybe this little girl will find something else to amuse herself with soon, like illegal drugs or something. Ah, the idea of some snotnosed brat getting arrested and hauled off to prison sure does brighten up one’s day, doesn’t it?

Just found out about the Naked Parts community. I guess Lianna doesn’t need to coordinate an XXXMas 2001 celebration, eh?

Random sleep-deprived thoughts

What’s the good of having a significant other if they’re 800 miles away? Grrr…

I really do plan to update my website someday soon, as soon as I can get my brand-new, not-even-paid-for, computer to WORK reliably for more than 10 minutes at a time. (At that point, I will get around to re-installing my programs for web wonderment. I actually have a RIAA piece I’ve been planning, composed primarily of old LJ posts rearranged in a coherent narrative.) Gee, wonder why Micron is getting out of the computer business? Windows ME blows chunks.

Speaking of unreliable, I really miss my broadband internet connection. Dialup blows almost as much as WinME.

New job is interesting, but could we cut down on the acronyms, please? Hell, there are acronyms composed of other acronyms, some of which are in turn acronym-laden. WTF?

Tomorrow morning, chai at work. Only way to make it through those regulations and powerpoint presentations. Powerpoint is evil.

Why do so many people have webcams to show off their home life, including copious nekkidness, to thousands of strangers? MAJOR exhibitionist tendencies. Calling Dr. Jung, calling Dr. Freud…

I really need to stop drinking Mountain Dew at 10 pm.

I like horizontal rules.

You go boy

So, on the way home today, going about 10 mph over the speed limit, some moron Marine roars up behind me in his ricey Acura, and before I can change lanes (duh wonder what that blinker means), he speeds around me, passing on the right. Second guy (soldier type) does the same thing right on his tail.

Twenty seconds later, I’m right behind them at a stoplight. Yeah, the extra wear and tear sure is helping you get home faster, putz boy.

Just found a cool site, that apparently has been around for years. Anyone who has been to Asia has undoubtedly seen examples of nonsensical English phrases plastered on buildings, packages, and advertisements. Someone has built a website to hold examples: Engrish. Here’s one to enrishes everyone and take the everyday time to thirst level!!! (or something)
