Post Whatever You Are Thinking At This Very Moment

do you think they're an odd pairing too?! so much odder in real life, because you have to remember that she's looking her most impossibly best whereas he's not looking his best because in real life he didnt go around in awkward fitting suits (my guess is it was a hand-me-down). she was soooo homely in real life.
i dont think they were overly religious, but they were from a small town where there arent a lot of possible pairings, and she just had homely friends and he had no friends i think, due to his being shy and having to be like a sort of dad to his brothers and sisters. im actually related to him somehow, i forget how, something to do with my tacky mustachioed aunt.
They didn't strike me as especially odd, just a bit sad, in that way of dull bridal couples starting out with limited horizons and low expectations. But who am I to judge, having been there twice...

i dont know, pep, i hate the way the world is, and it's not just this covid thing, i hate what it's becoming. a customer said something today about "have you heard what elon musk is doing?" and i was just like "no, and i dont want to know", and then that reminded me of how technology is advancing all the time, and who knows what the world will even be like in a year from now, and i was very lachrymose all day over it, i can tell you. i hate the idea of downloading books in your brain or whatever, and google glasses and all that shit. even the idea of ordering things at starbucks through an app where you just go and pick it up irks me. i like waiting for things. i like reading books. i like doing work and getting credit for it. i dont want everything to be instant. everything is so awful. i wish i were 20 again. i wish the world was the way it was when i was 20. :(
Yeah, I get that. And actually, part of my book is on that theme. I argue about this with my kids, who say, 'Why do I want to wait till next week for the next episode when I can stream them all now?' And I tell them, whatever happened to the value of delayed gratification? Everything has to be right now, and we've lost something as a result, I feel. But you can only go forward, we can't choose the direction of travel.

@Light Housework have you ever had these? they're so good! i dont even cook them, i just eat them cold.

They look good - even though I can't eat them! (I am a fan of food porn). Would no doubt be improved by a little pork, though...

It's sad in the eyes of spinsters/divorcees who don't want to acknowledge happiness in others because it causes them to think back ruefully over their own disappointments and failures. Your horizons were obviously limited, and still are which will be reflected in your book if your posts here are anything to go by; only a handful of people who you know personally will read it anyway. Nobody unless they're resentful and bitter (like Morrissey) would look at a picture of the wedding day of a normal couple and think it's "a bit sad", especially when they know nothing else about them and are using a reliable source like RIFKE for bits and pieces of information about their lives. Only people allowing their past experiences to colour their judgement would find a wedding day picture sad; you and rifke don't want other people to be happy in relationships because neither of you are, so you come up with imaginary flaws and 'oddness' in the relationship of another couple based on one picture to cope with it. That's what's sad.

Even in places like Italy, Switzerland, Austria and good old France people are starting to live again. If there's going to more restrictions there will be civil disobedience. A friend, our local pharmacist, said to me yesterday that a life without social interaction, without human touch, a life where every other person is seen as a potential threat is a life not worth living, and people aren't having it anymore. I think if we want our old normal back we will just have to take it back.
You are the most pathetic, worthless, self-absorbed human being I have ever encountered. F*ck your "old normal". I hope you're forced to wear a mask and stay under some form of lockdown conditions for the rest of your life.

These 'girls' are actually deluded, thinking they can write a book about anything...it's just sheer procrastination & saying you're writing a book justifies them not doing anything else...like working...one's on the dole, the other is a part time check-out operative in Loonsville somewhere in Canadiana. Who the f*** wants to read about the daily turmoil, or fantasies of ex-Mrs. or Ms. Mopp? No-one at all. Deluded.

Another paragraph from my manuscript:

She looks completely normal. I believe she was born indigenous, but I don’t know what happened to her up until the age of two, when she was adopted by our parents. I think she was in an orphanage until 2. Maybe the orphanage was a residential school. That may explain why the psychopathy. She has kept a steady job, has a husband and two daughters. Not me. I was diagnosed with all kinds of mental illnesses. I used to steal from big chain stores when I was a kid. Then I grew up and became a stripper for 7 years, but she’s the real psychopath between us. She was always portrayed as the good child, while I was the black sheep. In reality, it’s a different story, but she could be your coworker, sister in law, etcetera and you probably wouldn’t know how dangerous she is, until wham.

There was nothing dull about dreamy Jason. That's the thing: why did they have to get married at all? If your options are limited don't get married! Don't just marry the first person available (which is I'm sure entirely what he did). It's not the old days anymore, you don't HAVE to get married. THAT'S WHAT'S SAD ABOUT IT.
Jason wasn't sad. I would've married Jason. But we would NOT have had a wedding and he would NOT have worn that suit. On the other hand, if I had married him I probably wouldn't have been able to go to london and walk past dreamyneil's house and when I write my book it might be a bit hard explaining to him why I live alone on neil's street now so probably for the best that I didn't.
I just wish I could see a picture of him NOW. He's like 40 now. It makes me sad to think he might have aged like Skylarker (no offense Skylarker! ): bald and beer bellied. I'm gonna message that girl and tell her to update her profile with a picture of her and Jason. She'll think I'm a weirdo but I couldn't care less what she or any other white trash thinks, as it turns out.

Don't know that it's anything to do with you either way... I do know that trying to discourage people in artistic endeavors is philistine work.

How about you leave them alone you 36 year old spinster weirdo with a forehead wrinkle? I doubt that woman skips out on paying her rent and credit card bills like you do so who's the trash really? (It's you!)
That woman has a few things you'll never have: a husband, probably children, probably a house, and if she wanted to write a book I bet she'd just do it instead of writing for years on a forum about her desire to do it. She's made more of a success of her life than you ever will of yours and you can't stand that can you, hater!
