So yesterday my aunt turned to me and said, "You know, [name redacted], I've been thinking a lot about you lately." I said, quite eloquently, "Oh."

DOESN'T THAT SOUND ALARMING TO YOU, FLIST? I found it quite alarming. She is the gossipiest aunt ever, and I have the sneaking suspicion that when she says "thinking about you" she actually means "talking about you with my sister/mother/other relative." Of course all my other relatives are in Canada, and they already think I'm the weird girl who wears cartoon hats*, so I'm not really that bothered.

Speaking of dubious fashion choices! I made a leather bracelet thing today, it's awesome. And I know leather cuffs are at, like, entire toolbox levels of toolishness, BUT I JUST REALLY LOVE THEM. don't judge me ;___;



YOU ARE IMPRESSED, Y/Y/MFY? Once you look closely you realize the ~craftswomanship is at kindergarten level, because the leather strips are all fucked up because they were cut with scissors and I never learned how to cut straight. Alas.

*I didn't actually upload this pic, jsyk. But I totally own that hat.

pet peeves

What are your pet peeves, flist?

For me it's when I hold the door open for a guy and they freak out and insist I go through first. Before anyone calls me a ~humorless feminist~, I am so cool with dudes holding the door open for me. In fact, I think holding the door for someone (regardless of gender~) is the polite thing to do.

But I don't appreciate a guy being all 'OH HOLY SHIT IS THAT A FAIR MAIDEN HOLDING THE DOOR FOR ME? I AM FAILING IN MY MANLY DUTIES, AND SHE MIGHT FAINT FROM THE EFFORT. OH NO, DON'T TAX YOUR ARM LIKE THAT, LET ME HELP.'

SIGH. Look dude, if I reach the door first I'm going to hold it for you. The only other two options would be (1) to slam it in your face, or (2) to stop and wait for you to open it for me. Both of these options are distinctly unappealing. :|

My dad told me that most guys didn't find women with short hair attractive.

I was like, 'omg, thank you! When I make decisions concerning my physical appearance, my main concern is getting the approval of (straight) dudes, how did you know? BRB, GETTING EXTENSIONS.'

wtf people, wtf

When you have friends that turn out to be somewhat sexist/homophobic/ist, what do you do?

There's this one guy I'm rather close with, but he's turned to be completely fail-y when it comes to women. Dude is totally sexist.

I've chosen to continue being friends with him in spite of it. I don't necessarily feel bad about this decision, because I don't think I should be obligated to be the perfect feminist who only surrounds herself with fellow perfect people (lol, that's not even possible).

But at the same time, it's like - can this friendship even last? I never let his sexism pass; if he says something misogynistic, I'll call him out on it. I can't help but think at some point he'll just get tired of arguing and cut off contact. I'm not going to stop being the Annoying Bitchy Feminist for anyone, but... I'd actually miss talking to him. :/

And knowing his ~tendencies... I judge him, ngl. That's probably not conductive to much of anything.

Sigh. idk, livejournal, I'm feeling a little melancholy and lonely today.

I don't understand why these boots aren't in my life. Or these. I mean, shit. LOOK AT THEM, THEY'RE AMAZING.

When I'm feeling bored and masochistic, I troll the internet for boots I want but will never be able to buy. ;_; Lately I've been looking at clothing, too. SIGH WHY WASN'T I BORN A MILLIONAIRE.

I got a haircut! It's just above chin level and kind of ~boyish in an unfashionable way, but I like it. I can't stand long hair, it's so annoying.

I need an icon of boots or something, you guys. IT WOULD NEVER NOT BE APPROPRIATE.

Once when I was 12 I dressed up as a Native American for Halloween.

D: D: D:

I totally forgot about it for the longest time, but looking back... holy shit. I'm kind of ashamed of my 12-year-old self, because that racist shit just isn't cool, for a multitude of reasons. I mentioned this to my sister today, and she's like BUT WHY? I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

I D:'d, and then we got into an argument that ended nowhere good. Somehow the concept of blackface was brought up and both of my sisters AND my mom said they didn't know what blackface was and they didn't see the problem with (a white person) dressing up as a black political figure for halloween (for example, Obama). They asked if it was okay to dress up as other presidents (like George Bush), and when I said it was fine they said I was the racist one. RIGHT. Because it's not like blackface is SERIOUS BUSINESS or everything, people are so OVERSENSITIVE these days.

Then they said if it was okay to dress up as a police officer for Halloween, it was okay to dress up as a Native American. BECAUSE THEY'RE THE SAME THING, OBVS.

I'm so angry right, now idekjskla; jagdsfefdjkdf dsa RAGE RAGE RAGE

Fuuuuuuck.

Wow, I haven't posted in what feels like aaaaaaaages.

So I (attempted) to dye my hair purple. IT WAS A DISASTUH. Like, I was trying to dye streaks, not the whole thing, but the purple didn't take and now I have streaks of grayish-blonde in my hair. ;_; It's kind of lulzy, I must admit. I'm going to try again, which is possibly a really bad idea but I will prevail~~

veganism

So remember when I was vegan for, like, 5 months? Needless to say it didn't take. What can I say, cheese is my kryptonite.

I think I'm going to try again. I know, I know, but veganism makes sense (for me) on several levels. It's just the next step after vegetarianism, kinda. The next, immensely more difficult step, devoid of cheese and milk chocolate and ice cream without soybeans. ;_;

In any case, I figure if I post about this decision ~in writing~ I'll be more likely to stick with it. What do you mean, it didn't work last time? GO AWAY AND TAKE YOUR LOGIC WITH YOU >:(
