Okay, it's late, and I don't have much time before I have to go to sleep. I realized today that I'm a lot more mature. I'm going to be an leader figure to new students (particularly new Pagan students), I'm doing quite a lot of work to give support to the student organization I'll be a member of, I'm going to start earning more as of next month, hell, I'm at the point where I even iron my shirts and slacks.

So, anyways, I read this comment today, written by an utter moron on K5, and while I would typically love an chance to correct someone who obviously has no idea what they're talking about (and therefor boost my own debating image) instead I had what can be said to be a moment of claity:

I didn't want to respond. I didn't care what anyone thought. I didn't want to attempt to correct this person, or any of the ignorant individuals who might be influenced bi his argument. In short: I think I've matured past the point of K5.

The term you're looking for is "jaded."
Are you adequate?

Wow. I would say you have achieved some kind of zen-like enlightenment. Perhaps you are at one with K5....

i believe the next step is to just flame people and groups of people that you disagree with and ignore all responses.

doesn't the odd capitalization make you a little suspicious? i think a 12 year old girl who never capitalizes the first letter of a sentence, yet has no trouble capitalizing Important Words, nor hitting caps lock for MAXIMUM EMPHASIS, would be rather cute. but any non-nypmhette who wrote that way is either slightly mentally ill, or is affecting a Highly Weird Style for the sole purpose of messing with YOUR HEAD!

could you acquire a typing style like that BY ACCIDENT? no way. they think it is desirable to do it. conclusion: SOME kind of Creep. best to stay away.

in other nyphette news, I saw "The Others" today and found the child actors quite convincing and watchable. usually Child Actors make me cringe and turn away from the screen in empathic embarrasment. but not in this movie. it also had some pretty harsh digs at Xtianity for a mainstream movie, and conlcuded with some rather New Age metaphysics. or should I say Scientologist metaphysics? perhaps, but I'm not exactly sure WHAT those people believe. but if Cruise produced it and Kidman starred, it MUST be pushing some kind of crypto-Scientology, right.

I too may be a rather jaded person, if jadedness is what is at issue here. Yet "The Others" made me jump in my seat several time. Which for classic-style Gothic Horror is kind of the whole point, right?

also, does anyone know WHY movies are So Loud these days? what do they accomplish by deafening you? i'm seriously beinging Ear Plugs to the next movie I see.

I do, I do, I do
