Hello everyone. I am back and no longer super sick (that is, I’m not totally well but heck, I’m not dying sick anymore either). It is pretty nice to not feel like crap, being sick really does suck a lot of rod. Anyway, I think it is time to get into a real subject.
Random acts of stupidity. We have all seen them, and surely we have all acted parts in quite a few of them. I think the ones that are craziest are the drivers you see doing random acts of stupidity. I know that I have almost gotten in some accidents because of my own stupidity, but others’ stupidity is kind of entertaining to watch. I know that it sounds mean, but it is funny as long as no one gets hurt ya know? It is like earlier this week, we saw something pretty damn entertaining when it was icy.
It was pretty obvious that there was no freaking way you were not going to slide around out there that morning, so uncommon sense (yes, I said uncommon sense, because “common sense” is not all that freaking common) would dictate that you drive a little slower, you plan your route to not have to go down a lot of hills, you brake sooner and you watch out for trouble. Unfortunately, people are not that bright when it comes to driving in the snow.
We did a little sliding of our own, but knew it may be coming, so we we made sure to drive nice and slow and when we started to slide, we were able to regain control and park the car and avoid any accidents. Right after we parked it and were getting ready to drive off again, we watched one car (a Subaru) slide up on the sidewalk and try to ram into the Co-op. As we were discussing the stupidity of someone driving so fast and sliding around here comes another one (a Subaru) sliding across the street just like the one before, and sliding right into the first car. It only really funny because no one was hurt.
There are a lot more things that are stupid and hilarious, I am kind of at a loss of which to mention though. In fact, I have loss all though of what to write. I had pulled the random acts of stupidity thing from TLRB too, so it is kind of sad that I have nothing to write about. Pretty embarrassing right? I’m getting used to it though, I have been sucking at thinking of things to write for quite a while now. But I don’t think I will ever get used to other types of embarrassment. I really don’t like being embarrassed. I don’t really even like watching others get embarrassed.
I love romantic comedies (yes, I love them, it doesn’t make me a girly-man, and it doesn’t make me a big puss), I think there are some out there that are quite genius. But there are others that I just can’t stand to watch (mostly because the plot is utterly fucking stupid), they’re just full of embarrassing moments and I just can’t take it. It is much to stressful for me, kind of sad ehh? That’s why I don’t really like watching a good number of Ben Stiller’s movies. There is that standard character he plays all the time, the one that is extremely awkward, always making super embarrassing mistakes, getting into dumb situations that end in major misunderstandings. It is just really frustrating to watch. Mostly because people don’t freaking act like that, or at least not that often.
And, I’ve lost my flow again.
I have been sitting here staring at the screen waiting for words to come out for about twenty minutes now. Then I remembered the whole free-write thing for getting juices flowing again. By the way, I don’t really like that phrase. It is kind of dirty. “Get the juices flowing” just invokes some sexual ideas for me, but maybe that is because I’m just a dirty person. I guess I could start thinking about orange juice or maybe wine presses whenever I hear/think that phrase. I guess that would work.
I am really craving fiction writing right now. Not so much this kind of posting. I want to tell a story, make some stuff up, invoke visions in people’s minds. I love doing that kind of writing, even if I’m not really that awesome at it. I tend to want to write those kinds of stories in a very wordy way. What is funny about that is I really hate reading stories that are too wordy, it annoys me. I love the stories that Stephen King writes, but I can’t stand to read them because of his wordiness. I find that too many details distract me when I’m reading a story. But then when I go to write one, I want to give people every little bit of detail so they can see the world I am trying to create. Little weird, but I think I’m okay with it. I have gotten used to being weird.
I think I have been weird my whole life. I can’t remember if I was weird when I was little, but I can surely remember being weird as fuck from teenager till now. I am not sure what it is exactly that makes me weird, it is more of a mix of pretty much everything. Luckily I make weird work bitches, I own it. It’s mine.
I think I’m done with this post now. I have struggled to get it all out and it has rambled on into pure unadulterated bullshit for long enough. Hope you readers “enjoyed” it. If you didn’t, I’m sorry, hopefully by tomorrow I will be able to focus and get some words down that will actually be good to read.
