Owning My Lame

May 14, 2012

Recently, someone I know mistook a 'tongue and cheek' comment on my twitter as a personal attack. I don't know what's more upsetting - the fact that someone I know and love took any of my hyper-dramatized rantics (yeah, I just made a new word) in place of reality, or the fact that I now know that people parooze my timeline without following me. DUDE! If I wanted cyber stalkers, I'd much prefer ones that want to have sex with me.

Just sayin'!

Oh, and one more thing...

If any of you follow me on The Twitter, you know I spew out a lot of shit - and yes, much is directed at family members - but that's the place to vent and have some fun. Take a couple steps back from our stressed out, often ridiculous lives and type out some shots... and then 10 seconds later, it's buried and gone into the Twittersphere's abyss of endless words and emoticons.

If people truly follow my tweets, you would know that out of my almost 30,000 tweets, I'd say that about 25,000 are self-deprecating. And I'm OK with that. I find it rather entertaining and I don't take any of my personal insults... well... personally.

And I don't do it because I am cool with self loathing, because I'm not. Au contraire; I think I'm awesome, but I am able to laugh at all the lame things I do and say and watch and feel.

I think people would be A LOT less susceptible to hurt feelings, and even bullying, if we could all be more self aware about our qualities and actions that are perhaps a little bit quirky. Instead of curling into millions fetal positions all across the world while we get metaphorically kicked in the nuts with words, we should laugh along with them and say, "Yeah, OK. Ya got me. I know it's lame but I love it. So. Fucking. What."

Then, what would or could they do?


 So, here are a few things of mine that I totally realize range from mildly lame to completely ridonk!

1. I watch Days of Our Lives AND Young & the Restless every gawd damn day.
Ask me something - whatch'you wanna know? I got your updates or back stories for the last 20 years, like an over achieving drug dealer... except with far fetched plot lines.

2. I own two pairs of Crocs and they are so fucking comfortable.

3. I also own two pairs of polyester pants - like the kind from Walmart. When I worked there and had to fold them, I laughed my ass off, thinking, "Who the fuck wears these? Some old grannies?" Yup. Now this fat granny ass fills them, and I LOVE that they have an elastic waist and they are wash n' wear.

4. I collect figurine turtles. Like... a lot of turtles. From all over the world. Or given to me by family (or even some from ex-boyfriends) Meh. They all have a story - which I've cataloged and colour coded with stickers underneath each turtle. Seriously.

5. And for the past 20 minutes, I've been balling my eyes out over the series finale of Desperate Housewives.

Yeah, OK. Ya got me. I know it's lame but I love it. 
So. Fucking. What.

Bring it on - I can take it. Yay!


  1. Holy shit...you have two pairs of crocks? Shit. Your cool level hasn't changed but I need some time to wrap my head around this one.

    If I become a cyber stalker,....what else do I GET along with the sex?!

  1. Sub Radar (Mike) said...:

    Soap operas, crocs, AND desperate housewives... oh dear. Only joking... kinda.


  1. Now, I understand how you are able to send all those tweets where each one deserves to be carved in gold.

  1. Bitch said...:

    I couldn't live u any more than I do right now, crocs and all. Rock on, sista!!!

  1. vinobaby said...:

    OMG, I collect turtles, too. Much cooler than the current owl fetish going around. Shocked about the crocs though. Shocked. Twitter is fickle place, no longer a safe haven for snarky comments. {And I just found out yesterday that MY MOTHER now has a twitter account! If my MIL gets on there I'm tossing my laptop out the window.}

    Keep spewing the shit.

    Meh, I am a Star Wars geek so I could never judge someone else for being lame . . . err I mean super dee duper cool! :)

  1. Random Girl said...:

    To all of that I say "Who cares!?!" You are still awesome. Crocs and all. Haters be hatin....because the don't have anything better to do.

  1. Lady Estrogen said...:


    I like to poke fun at the ridiculous... because... IT'S RIDICULOUS, so it's only fair that I should expect some back. I'm OK with that ;)

  1. Rebecca said...:


    I look at you entirely different now.

    I hope that fall off the pedestal didn't hurt. : (

  1. Thank, Q said...:

    I just can't figure how you and Brandon from Idaho aren't married. You're soul mates. It's like the same blog rants, but from a different gender perspective. Lol!

    I agree with you that people shouldn't take things so personally. This country is filled with wimps and it's a shame. I guess I'll assume the problem exists in Canada as well.

    By the way, I absolutely hate Crocs.

  1. Lady Estrogen said...:


    Na. I've got a lot of cushioning for that fall!


    I know - it's a mystery to me too.

    And I'm not saying that Crocs are attractive - I know they're ugly, but sometimes in this life, function wins out over fashion.

    This is one of those times.

  1. Um, Q? This is really me and my blog. You remember the dude from Rocky Horror that was a man but acted like a woman? When I feel like a transvestite, I just come over here and bitch.


    ...and now that you're thinking about it, it makes total sense, doesn't it?

    Mind? Yeah, it's blown.

  1. I love my Crocs too! They ARE comfortable!! Not much to look at, I admit but for comfort, they're the best! I will say that I draw the line at those Walmart granny pants.. :)

  1. Zombie said...:

    Makes me laugh when people take their twitter seriously. lol.

  1. I'm disturbed by that list but mostly that someone would take offence at anything you'd say. Like wtf lighted up people. Cunt Dragon even acknowledges you exist it's a damn good day. No suck up you're just cool and according to that list a dork.

  1. Lady Estrogen said...:


    Here's the thing though - with some nice shoes (not Crocs) and a blouse, they're no different than any other black slacks - and no one would be the wiser. Shhhhh :)

  1. Carri said...:

    This is why I love you. Why anyone would take anything you say seriously is beyond me.

    BTW, Crocs are fucking horrific.

  1. Lady Estrogen said...:


    Have you tried them? They're like walking on heaven and they don't get stanky in 5 days like Birks.
    So easy to keep clean.

    But yeah, they're ugly as fuck.

  1. SO. FUCKING. COMFORTABLE. end of story.

  1. Karen said...:

    I wear crocs ALL THE TIME and they are so fucking comfortable I don't care if they are ugly. Got my mary jane crocs on right fucking now....yeah, start with me bitches! LOL!!
    I love the turtle thing, that is so cool. I collect shot glasses and thimbles. Oh and matchbooks from silly places and snow globes. Yeah I collect a lot of shit. Get over it

  1. Leighannn said...:

    I love this!
    Tells me more about you, although the pants make me question your sanity.
    Go for yoga pants.
    I like crocks too but I could only afford the fake ones lol
