Things that are pissing you off. - Page 793

You know what I hate? Train. Seriously, they're like the worst band ever. If Train were here right now, I would hit them in their smug little faces with a flashlight. Or a hammer. God, I hate those guys.

That's too sneaky for a sock. If it wasn't for the post count I wouldn't have even been able to tell. You're doin' it wrong noob.

Look at it this way, though: perhaps I'll be starting a new trend? Who else is real enough to get wiped and rebuilt? Better, stronger, faster, and all that. I await your reply.

I'm really, really conflicted here, but here we go.

I think I cockblocked my son at his birthday party. I exaggerate of course, I doubt he and the little filly he was with were seriously about to go to town, but I dragged them out of the closet all the same. On the upside, it was a hetero moment in a largely flamboyant existence on his part.

And there's the rub. I tell myself I'd support my son if he liked boys more than girls, but then again why did I find it a relief that he's taking a shine to a girl? I feel like a damned hypocrite for feeling this way, and the only excuse I can lend myself (because gays are persecuted) just isn't ringing true.

I understand your conflict - MrsG and I have had similar conversations about LowerCaseG - but I don't think it's a huge deal that you feel this way. If nothing else, you want your son to be like you. If you played football, and he was considering football and basketball, wouldn't you be happier if he chose football than if he chose basketball? Wouldn't you feel like you could help him more with football than basketball?

I think these types of conflicts are natural, and it doesn't make you a bad person because you have them. What's important is whether you really would support him. Doing the right thing isn't always a result of your internal tendencies; sometimes it's a result of learning about your internal tendencies and doing right despite them.

Well, the bigger struggle in all that is teaching him to win the acceptance of his peers and learning to hold his head high, despite all that's gone before him. He's a born jokerster (family tradition?) but hasn't learned when to end the joke so he develops a nasty reputation...which kills the acceptance part. So we're trying to pound a square peg into a round hole and get him to conform...which goes against my own nature and some of the things I try to teach him - as kind of a lesser of two evils.

....

other things that are pissing me off: I'm current in my accounting class. With other people this would mean that they are proactive and managing their time properly. With me this means the professor is behind in assigning quizzes and homework. I know my nature and can call a spade a spade.

dammit, I'm tired - have been tired all damn day, too tired to focus, to tired to want to work. Just want to go to bed and sleep. No coffee available and I forgot to bring a damn coke today.

Had the first day of my masters, and found out I really do have nine to five or even six lectures almost every day, plus reading and work, which is going to be horrific.

Saw my ex for the first time in a year and a half, met her for dinner. It started out nice, but ended up with me missing her more, which was the opposite of what I had hoped would happen. When I told her she talked about how she is still with her boyfriend yadda yadda yadda. He lives in Buenos Aires, and she only seems to be dating him out of some sense of obligation, she says can't break up with him till she sees him next. Fuck this, why can't I just turn these damn feelings off and go bang some hussies.

hey, I'd love my son if he were gay (or my daughers) but that doesn't mean I'm nuetral about it. perfectly normal.

An enormous tree fell in my yard.

I guess I'm fortunate in a way - this is a BIG tree, and if it had fallen in pretty much any other direction it would have done major damage. As it stands it fell in the only open area in that part of the yard and on some fence. I can fix the fence myself, though the timing sucks given I have my first baby due in two weeks. I'm just hoping it won't cost too much to get the tree removed. It's already on the ground, so it just needs to be chopped up.

It could have been worse, and I'm thankful it wasn't, but it's still really inconvenient.

Yeah, that has to be tough. You don't want to stifle his personality, but I can see where acceptance among his peers could be really important, particularly in his case.
