"Never judge a person until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes" seems to be an apt phrase here. Relationships are seldom the same for any two people and I, for one, try not to judge even my best friends relationships, it seldom turns out good for any of us, even if I am trying to be helpful. Honestly is sometimes about the persons perception. Hope that makes sense. On a happier note for me after putting in 72 hours this week I am off ALL weekend, yeah me!

I don't think there's any doubt about Ashton's "bumpy" (for lack of better words) love-life, the dispute is against "women having an easier time getting men".  Which I say is false unless we're talking about sexual gratification -- not actual "relationships", and constantly bringing "woman's advantages".  Also, Ashton, Canadian law is somewhat more critical in regards to uttering threats against someone (not regards to making an arrest, but getting cops to at least mediate the situation or what have you -- and in which case, I see nothing wrong with leaving someone who makes a threat).

Anyways.  Women are she-devils.  I'm moving on.

Lots of work to do today, but I began the morning with sunlight shining into the bathroom as I shower and washed my hair with a lovely peppermint shampoo-poo. :D
It was perfect.

Ever have someone threaten to accuse you of rape and/or abuse if you want to break up with them? Yeah.

That's inexcusable.  If anything, I'm blaming you for (I assume) *not* leaving that kind of situation or calling the police if that kind of stuff escalated... no one should behave that way, and if she tried anything, you should get police involved if she did anything so severe.  If I'm rolling my eyes it's because I wouldn't put up with that.

There's a very good reason most of the time I don't talk about this stuff, because people go judgmental on me, with the eye rollings and the boo hoos and the be a mans. It sure sounds easy when you have the benefit of third party objectivity and not being in a shitty relationship, but then, if I were a woman, would I be getting the same eye rollings, boo hoos, and be a (wo)mans? I doubt it. This inequity has bothered me for some time now, especially when people have told me to 'get real problems,' and 'check my privilege' (??!?).

I'd be saying the same thing to either sex.  I think a man and woman would be stupid to stay in a one-sided relationship.  You keep talking about "woman advantages" usually in terms of "men's privileges", and it's annoying and way too vague.  What advantages?  I ackowledge a middle-road in there somewhere, but socially men are doing terribly well compared to women (physical upkeep is more extensive for women, men are the bigger sports stars world-wide, men usually procure better and better paying jobs, women are still seen as promiscuous if she tries sleeping around, men are considered just players, women are still bogged down with more household responsibilities usually only levied if she can meet a man's social/job standing).  Unless you're talking about how easy it is for a woman to "hook up" sexually, I don't know what you mean (I agree, she probably just has to announce she wants sex).  But if you're just talking about them being able to like someone, then believe me, I've talked to enough love-torn women asking if he "loves me/love's me not)".

I'm not saying one gender or race or whatevs is all this or all that, I'm well aware of the fact that there exist perfectly normal, decent women who would treat others like human beings. However, I've never had a relationship with one of these women and I am not going to chance another abusive relationship just because people keep telling me there are better things out there when I just keep getting the short end of the stick. Seriously, it's been 15 years.

I'm taking on some of Yoda's vague and somewhat bad advice here, but you've gotta man up a bit if women or even people are taking advantage of you; if this keeps happening (for 15 years?!) you gotta make sure they don't see you as a chump.  

My advice to all men: Be a man.
Nah, I just hate that statement of "Be a man", so I made a bad joke. But seriously, it's an unfair statement. Your approach works for you, but I can't walk into a bar or club and use your technique, it wouldn't work for me. It's not because you're more of a man, but because we're different men.  

Just putting that out there.

Still not listening.

Who said I did any of that anyway?

To Agent's defence, I didn't really get where you were going with that either.

Y'know what's funny about that is I had a Michael Jackson song playing at that time ("Smooth Criminal")

Actually, it does help to be a bit "androgynous" in how you generally behave and compose yourself.  Being 100% man and 100% woman is a sort-of ideal that no one should fall into completely.

dropping out of life for one year and getting the fuck out.

I think I worked a grand total of 35 hours this week because my test lead kept telling me to quit testing and it's like, fuck it, you don't want me working, I'm going home.

I could really go with dropping off the face of the earth for a year.

Also I used to think that fybromyalgia wasn't real but now I wonder if it's like a subset of benign fasciculation syndrome.

Also back when I was in college I remember writing a pro-men's right movement essay, 'cause I thought the men's rights movement was /against/ traditional male gender roles. WHOOPS.

I think fybromyalgia is fake in so far my mum overplays hers, or rather, doesn't really try to make any efforts besides "sleeping it off"...all...day...long.

I'm surprised you thought that with regards to male gender roles.  It's kinda funny, one of those fun things to look back it.

My level of eye-rolling is getting too intense. I'm going to bed.

I can only imagine what part (I'm even throwing in my responses here -- but man I hate railing on any sex/race/whatever without knowing people come in all colours -- bright and wonderful and shitty and puke-y).

Ashton:  Stop getting into shitty relationships, if ladies do that kind of shit to you, you W-A-L-K.

She has decided to go back to her ex. Once more I find myself alone. Good times.

This is why I no longer try to have relationships anymore.

Oh BOOO HOOOO (to Ashton more; sorry to hear Dagger).  Just wait for it and pursue when it happens.  Waiting for one good thing is better than 20 half-assed things (unless you're going into that....for "one night").
It's easier for a girl to get back in the dating scene, honestly. Sounds sexist, but it's true. :P

Besides, the long-term relationships I've been in have all been abusive and negative for me (with the added fun of being told I "deserved it" after the fact by various other women), so I really am not eager to go into another one just for the opportunity to let another woman abuse and mistreat me because they want to lord their power over me.

By comparison short term stuff have worked out for me much better; no demands, no abuse, nobody telling me I'm a horrible person for leaving an "obviously stressed out girl," just enjoyable, no strings attached fun times.

2 Best Pieces of Dating Advice Ever:  Be confident. Play hard to get.
I don't care if everyone's heard it before. 

Sure -- all a girl has to do is "put-out", but I hate that excuse that it's easier for them -- it's only easier in that regard for sexual biz-nass.  Women want more than that (most of the time), and the majority of the time it's not as easy to get.  Furthermore, while it may be a "womanly fault", men sometimes make it too easy to get with them, they're too eager or whatever.  If you don't act confident, then at the very least, play hard to get.  If you feel rewarded by a challenge in videogames or tests or whatever, so too do girls love a bit of a trial to make their (i guess) deep feeling and efforts worth it.  Worst is the fuckers who flirt with you in a club -- you know what they're thinking, and you can be on that in a New York minute, but when it's that damned transparent, what's the point?  Sex is great, and if it is easier for a girl to get, then make it worth it in other ways in how you compose yourself, how you get along, and how you communicate.

You make it sound too often like we're not torn by whether a fella likes us or not (there's highschool in a nut shell right there), and quite often, they don't like you or are completely oblivious to it (or fucking Jacqueline already got there before you...GRR).  You make it sound like we're monsters ready to put our hands in your pocket than in your hand.

Not that I have any REAL know-how about what's going on with you or whats happened, but if I had to guess I think you've has some bad relationships (or the few that really got at you) and extrapolate that into a generality about women; but men can be just as shitty sometimes too.  I think you're doing a good thing now by just "little dates".  And I agree, short-term works, it did for me for a while, till I realized I used and could use the same lines and moves every damn date and decided to settle down and stop pursuing people I "liked" but one who "drove me nuts" (and, coincidentally, made it a pain in the ass to flirt with -- the sad story of me trying to get with my current boyfriend was me buying movie passes and writing my phone number on it when all else failed... ).

I'd probably like to chat IRL with anyone here that isn't some sort of shut in. Meeting new people is my jam, as long as they're friendly

Doomed from the start, we are.  I'm a bitchy shut-in who just complains about being hungry all the time. D:

Life's too short to pine on one bimbo (try to lead by my example: the longest I've been saddest about an ex is a few days; afterwards it's replaced healthily with a "wtf was I thinking? I"M SINGLE AGAIN BABY!!!!")

Oddly enough, I'm more apprehensive for friendships, I feel like good versions of those are a harder find and I'm terrible with them.  I feel like even IF I met Yodes and Mongoosey and Kevadu, and Agent, and ANYONE, they'd start to hate me shortly after....like many others have.
One of by old best buddies was recently making plans with someone else...in front of me... o_o  Yaaaay.

I wish Dice or Akanbe would come over and help me out with this 30pack of beer and stupid collection of ps1/n64 games

Honestly, I'm "this close" ( |---| ) to just dropping out of life for one year and getting the fuck out.  Maybe Chicago, but maybe Scotland and fulfill my lifelong desire to meet some mythological creatures.
I feel like all I have right now are the few people in my life who make it good, money, freetime, health, happiness are all sauntering downwards.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy soundtracks available on iTunes -- Source: Nova Crystallis

"Several Theatrhythm Final Fantasy soundtracks have made their way onto iTunes – four of them to be exact."

Aww.  I wanted to pay munny for the version of Rose of May they have when you're looking at collector cards...

Appearing in Space Jam isn't nearly as shameful as say, appearing in Space Jam during the height of your ill-advised career move to a sport you're not all that great at.

Bo Jackson you were not, Mike Jordan.

It's also not as shameful as the highs and lows as Dwayne Jackson (the Rock)'s career. 
Quite frankly, I admire Space Jam for making his baseballing days a plot point to some extent.

As I am so often, I'm a couple of years late to the party in finding out about this guy, but I'm not sure how to feel about how good he sounds in such a wide range.  Well, OK, I'm a bass, so I feel smug that he struggles with the lower notes.


I love those assemblies and accapella or whatever sing songs.  THey're usually quite well done and amusing

I know this has been posted before, but hey, it's fun to be scared all over again. :)

Check out the latest photo craze in Japan.  At least with high school girls, it seems.


("Oh, what a blatant attempt to get people to click your link," you're thinking.  But it's simultaneously true and not why the photos are cool/funny.)

Quoting becuase it's cool.  And because Yoda loves commenting on shit the moment it gets paged (making it potentially unseen by folks too lazy to click).

The Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki

= Done by the fella who did "Girl who Lept Through Time" and "Summer Wars".  Thematically somewhat similar; emphasis on family and choosing your life path and doing what makes you happy.  Overall, Summer Wars took more liberties in storytelling with Wolf Children being slightly more pedestrian (though I can't pass the former for being a "remake" of sorts of a certain Digimon movie), and less of a deep plot than GWLTT... but the story is sincere, funny, heart-warming, and very sweet.
= Leave it to Japan to tell the tale of a single parent and her ....wolf children.
= on that note... Furries will probably love the fuck out of this flick.  One scene in particular, it's not sexual, but I'm 90% certain it leads to it. 
= The film is very cute.  The kids Ame and Yuki are sweet and believable as children (they're rambunctious yet shy, curious yet reserved), and become somewhat moodier as they grow up and learn about their "social lives" and the complexities of dealing with it as half-human, half-wolf beings.
= I loved how the children go in-and-out from being wolves and the issues poor mum has to deal with in keeping their secret.  There is a bit of awkwardness with regards to making them into "anime-wolves", especially when you see a "real wolf" animated with real-wolf eyes.
= Minor beef.  Yuki's hair changes colour for no apparent reason (or I missed it?) from auburn to black.  ...I guess she dyed it.  The third act drags during a forest scene that goes on a bit longer than necessary, and the villagers kind of get dropped off from the plot altogether.  But also the ending kinda ended on a " =/ oh" note.
I think it's great Ame and Yuki decided their own lives and decided in very different ways how they would do it: Yuki decides to live as a more-human girl and Ame as a wolf of the wild; but they both leave home as mum [u]lives alone[/u].  For a movie about family (especially with how Summer Wars took the point to an 11), I would have loved just a small epilogue of them coming back home or something just a bit more for all that was put into showing them grow up...Daresay, I was sad they left the nest, even if that was part of the point of the film.... they were so young to do so.  Ame decided to piss off by the age of 10, and Yuki went to middle-school dorms by 13 I guess.  Also, I wish there was one last scene about a brother/sister bond.  Their last major scene was them fighting. 
Bonus Round!!!!
= Major points to the Old Man in this film sounding like a Japanese version of Super Dave Osborne
= Also big points to our leading lady for dressing nicer to a class lecture when she was trying to impress a boy in class.  NOIHAVENTDONETHAT.... but actually...
