Insults with a smile Why I oughta...: Insults with a smile

By Rhiannon on Wednesday, March 22, 2000 - 08:16 pm:

    Today a girl I work with told me I was the most airheaded person she had ever met. But she meant that in a nice way.

    I didn't take it in a nice way, though I pretended to. People like that usually get upset with you when you get upset with them for not taking their insults as jokes, I've noticed. Even though they really meant them as insults and only disguise them as jokes, you're not supposed to know that.

    Moreover, why do people persist in mistaking optimism for stupidity? If I think things are going to turn out well, it's not because I'm not smart enough to think of the unfortunate possibilities, it's because I have enough faith in myself and in experience to believe that things will end up positively.

    I just don't like to be called stupid, even in a nice, friendly, euphemistic way. Oh, wait, I'm not stupid, I'm just an airhead. Aw, bite me.

    next time, tell her "bite me". in fact, i suggest you practice saying "fuck you" to somebody at least once a week. it'll do you a world of good.

    you can start with "bite me" and then work up to "fuck you", if you'd rather.

By Rhiannon on Wednesday, March 22, 2000 - 11:55 pm:

    I'll do just that (say "bite me"...."fuck you" is hard for me to say) next time the opportunity arises.

    Cynics think that they are inherantly superior to optimists because they "see reality as it really is."

    Optimists think that they are inherantly superior to cynics because they can live life and be happy at the same time.

    realists inherently believe that every so often shit is gonna happen and assholes are going to wander in and out of your life and that all you can really do is look at it all and say "fuck you."

    and i don't mean that in a bad way. i mean a very positive, defiant, joyful "fuck you." from the heart.

    may the fuck you be with you.

    "may the fuck be with you."

    sounds like a blessing and a curse all at the same time.

    I find it much easier to say "fuck you" than "bite me." Bite me is so extreme.

    judo CHOP!!!!!

    What are you supposed to bite? I had always thought penii, so that wouldn't work for girls. I don't think 'bite me' is much of a swear.

    Not like 'Suck my pus-infected piss-slit you dickless fuck.'

    No, not like that.

    I also hear spitting works.

    What kind of fool calls Rhiannon an airhead?

By patrick on Thursday, March 23, 2000 - 07:17 pm:

    perhaps somebody dickless or with a pus-infected the way, Dinner Lady, the pus-infected ....comment.....well you see that falls into my girls don't poop catagory and well, can you hold off on those comments, they just tend pee on my mental parade

By Rhiannon on Thursday, March 23, 2000 - 07:22 pm:

    You're too kind. I admit I can be kind of spacy sometimes. But that's because I'm thinking of things other than the task at hand, not because I'm not thinking at all.

By Rhiannon on Thursday, March 23, 2000 - 07:27 pm:

    Err...I was responding to Semillama there.

    How I missed Patrick's comment is a mystery. Maybe I was thinking of other things?

By patrick on Thursday, March 23, 2000 - 07:55 pm:


    you knew that was coming

By Rhiannon on Thursday, March 23, 2000 - 08:32 pm:

    Bite me.

    You knew that was coming, too :

    A gay male friend of mine who used to tour manage girl band the Aquanettas originated that 'pus-infected' schnasty comment as a retort to one of the ladies in the band who had gotten on his nerves for the last time. Ah sleep deprivation can yield some gruesome things. He is far louder and gayer than Stephin Merrit.

    If you want me to pee on your parade that'll cost you extra.
