fine, fine... lemming mode it is.

A Random Number Of Random Things About Me
  • I watch way, way too much Cartoon Network. Actually I don't. But I watch enough of it that most people would say that.
  • I'm actually pretty reconciled with and happy with the fact that I'm in my thirties now. (w00t!)
  • I used to be a fairly significant Intarweb Presence, but not anymore. Partly because I've lost interest, and partly because the internet has gotten pretty heavily commoditized, and mostly because the latter REALLY reinforces the former.
  • I used to be a serial monogamist, but I think I've pretty much recovered. I feel weird about not being one anymore sometimes, but I try to squelch it when I do.
  • I actually used to defend Microsoft from its detractors. Sigh.
  • It took me about 30 total years of living in Alabama and South Carolina to do it, but I've finally inadvertently developed an unmistakeable Southern accent. That DOESN'T just appear when I'm pissed off enough to be close to throwing a punch at somebody.
  • I used to stress really hard about the possibility that I might never Find Someone and Settle Down And Have Kids.
  • I don't really worry about that anymore. If it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen - and it very well might not.
  • I've discovered that life's a lot more enjoyable when you just live it the way it is instead of living it in anticipation of something you hope it will become.
  • I am a card-carrying ACLU member in a state that has a GIGANTIC STATUE OF AN UNBORN FETUS ON THE GROUNDS OF THE STATE HOUSE. Sigh.
  • I'm totally out of clever shit to say.

i totally don't understand this:

I used to be a serial monogamist, but I think I've pretty much recovered. I feel weird about not being one anymore sometimes, but I try to squelch it when I do.
Serial monogamy is when you enter into one monogamous relationship, break it off, and then enter into another monogamous relationship - lather, rinse, repeat. It's basically the default dating style of the western hemisphere. Most people are so heavily immersed in it that they don't actually think about it, anymore than they think about which side of the road they drive on. It just gets filed under The Way Things Are Done, and that's all there is to it.
