The me show... hehehe. seven factoids. okay, I'll play.

I was recently tagged by "mommy dearest" and so I have to do seven factoids about myself. It's kind of hard, considering I usually don't divulge personal details that easily, and therefore don't blog that much.


Rules:

* Link back to the person who tagged you. Check.
* Write your seven quirky things. Soon to be checked
* Terrorize 7 other people whose blogs you visit. Scary. Link to them in your meme post.
* Tell them what you have done in their comments section.
* Beg their forgiveness.(Yeah, like THAT is gonna happen)

Fact number one: I am Greek Orthodox, and am attending Greek school (I want to learn the language so I can be fluent in speaking it).
Fact number two: I am a Cancer, and my moon is Aries. This means that despite the fact that I generally prefer my own company, I am loud and tend to have NO VERBAL FILTER, and sarcastic humor that goes unappreciated by a lot of people.
Fact number three: I like science fiction and the TV show scrubs. It's funny.
Fact number four: I am so anti-lying that sometimes when i tell the truth I offend people, so as a result if I don't like someone I glare at them/ refuse to speak to them until they go away.
Fact number five: I once got into a verbal cursing match with someone in the altar at church (during service) and my priest had to break it up all because I thought I was right (I apologized for being harsh to the other person five minutes later, as yes I had made my point, but maybe unintentionally hurt his feelings in the process).
Fact number six: I am somewhat attracted to Paris Hilton. Shut up! I am, okay? I think she's smart, but is too damned lazy to use her God-given brains.
Fact number seven: I used to write horror movie scripts in high school.
I have tagged the following people

Joe Pennant Because he's cool.


hotfessionalBecause she's a super lady.


Unclebob Another funny guy.


Boneblower.She's cool


Old Knudsen Because he's crazy and I happen to like crazy.


Bloggernoob Can anyone say "curiosity"?


Mommy dearest First of all, nobody said I couldn't do ROUND TWO. Second of all, I wanna see what she comes up with next!


no apologies, I'm sticking by my story here.

meeting women...

Hmm, you're no doubt intrigued by this title, and I can tell why. You're wondering to yourself at this point; what's this guy gonna say now? Well, here it is. If you all don't know, but in the city I live in; there isn't much out there. Three ways to meet women for the guys here. One is the bar scene, the greasy as hell bars/clubs which everyone goes as a "meet market", Generally I happen to steer clear of those train wrecks since I can't seem to convince myself that shallow one night stands will actually amount to a meaningful relationship, but that's me. Second of all, there's the dating sites, and I can afford the free ones (But seriously, even the paid ones [I've done the free trials] are crap on a stick). Those don't work because this city seems to offer the rest of the options for me. Women whose signs are not compatible with me in any shape, way or form, whose personalities are shallower than a kiddie pool, or they're still too immature to do anything other than "play around" and not commit to anything other than contributing to me getting a bloody migraine headache. The third one is church... Well, the women there are taken, and I am Greek Orthodox. Here's what would happen. There would be rumors and people gossiping because GREEK PEOPLE GOSSIP. enough said. If I want to go either route, I might want to wait until I got to another city.
Unless anyone has I dunno, any suggestions on where I can meet women?
I mean that would be super freaking good. Too bad this city doesn't have many venues/ I am totally clueless about meeting new people in an environment where there isn't places where you can meet new people in a nice, non loud relaxing environment.

Paris Hilton

Usually, I stay away from celebrities, and for good reason. It just makes me wonder what the hell people see in them. But seriously; someone needs to give Paris Hilton a wake up call that acting is NOT FOR HER. Of course, they have to dumb the script down considerably just to accommodate her. This may not be a problem to some, but to me?
Well, the movies these days are just "smart"(I'm being sarcastic here, people. I think movies need more thought put into them)enough without having to make them so coma patients who are almost dead can enjoy them. I mean, look at where we are going in this regard. Hell in a handbasket is where I say we are going. Of course, its MY BLOG; so I can afford to say things like this.Seriously, look at the interview on letterman.
You can see the man is watering down the questions to accommodate miss Hilton.

On the plus side, that interview made me laugh more than my favorite standup comics combined. I am laughing now even as I type this blog entry up. I think I acutally hurt my self laughing. reminds me of the duct tape car story. But that one is a story for later.
I was inspired to blog about her by a post on
Old Bitter Balls and his latest pic (a warped version of Paris Hilton that made me laugh, but not as hard as the interview).
I mean, if you saw her in the movie "house of wax", you won't be surprised when I say there were actual theaters that the people cheered when her character DIED.
However, since I am not a TOTAL ASS, and should say something nice to balance all of this negativity out, I will say the following: something nice.
Just kidding, obviously we watch celebrities like this so we can fulfill our deepest desires to feel superior to others by pointing out their flaws, rather than thinking about how well we can do as people. So what she's dumb as a post? If you're comparing yourself to her mentally, then sure you might win, but where do we get by comparison?
Its akin to competing against a four year old in an arm wrestling competition. Sure you win, but don't expect many if any high fives. Here's an idea people; If you want to see something of higher caliber out there, then do it yourself.
Deep down, I do wish that people such as Paris Hilton could finally "get it" and make society better with new ideas and notions. Hell, if she ever got off her ass and did something that required more thought and challenged herself, I would be the first to say "cool, she's not a dumbass after all".
So, when it all comes down to it though, I wonder the following. (A quote I stole from the simpsons. the episode where lisa tries to educate some yokel kids)
"how's this gonna put dog meat on my plate?"
Which means, how is this going to help me succeed in life? Answer: It's not.
So, why are we so obsessed with this thing called celebrity?
Because we can breathe easier knowing its not us being judged by everyone in the world.
I like to think that will never happen to me, but everytime I blog or post a youtube video, I am leaving myself out there for people to judge. We all have something that we are trying to say, and sometimes, we act like idiots.
I think in the end, I'm making this point; Sure, its fun to laugh at paris hilton, but damn. How will we grow if we're too busy laughing our asses off?

show your colors?! more like show your sheep wool!

Baa!!!!!!!I mean, can you people not watch this and wonder where the hell our society went if we've got this damned annoying joke of a jingle stuck in our heads?!
Go ahead and click! I'll be right here waiting...

Seriously, did you not see that?
It really kills me a little inside to think how gullible we are to buy this crap hook, line and sinker! So, I guess my one question for this is:
What drugs are the writers(idiots)/geniuses that sat on the toilet and came up with this crap taking, and where can I get some so that I may find this commercial entertaining as well?
I mean, even a comatose idiot with an IQ of 60 could come up with better. Thank God the writer's strike is over, so the real writers can come back and these idiotic, talentless lackeys can maybe be fired once and for all for making me sit through 30 seconds of this crap when something I want to watch on tv is on. Hence, another argument for downloading shows, because at least then I won't have to sit through retarded commercials. GAH!
Guess it's just PROOF POSITIVE of the idiots in Toronto willing to pay for this atrocity which makes me almost vomit a little in my own mouth. SHOOT ME NOW AND PUT ME OUT OF MY COMMERCIAL MISERY, or better yet, someone SLAP THE CRAP out of these marketing people and make them feel the pain I feel EACH AND EVERY TIME I AM FORCED TO WATCH THIS FESTERING PILE OF CRAP.
Regards,
assburgerboy
Ps: I love you all(unless you had a part in making this comercial)!

Life

My life is one where I have been saying crap like "that's okay", and whenever I used to play games with my step brother, we had to make due with certain realities. There was always this game called "let's pretend", which later in my life evolved into "that's ok" and "life isn't what I wanted it to be so let's play this new game" and I called it the "settle for" game. People don't accept me for who I am whether I behave or not? Well I'll "settle for" talking to myself in private, and I will keep myself company. My best friend stabs me in the back, and tries to make me look like a complete and total douchebag? Well, I will settle for being my own best friend, who needs that person in my life? Members of the opposite gender don't want to even freaking talk to me because I'm a weirdo in their eyes and I can't do anything right?! Well, "settle for" a life of unhappiness, and move on. What a damned crock that I realized that I can neither afford nor did I want to buy in the first place! I have goals, and they don't involve asking some idiots "would you like fries with that" while contemplating ways I could put an end to a life that inevitably becomes a miserable existence because I was too busy bitching and complaining about it to do anything to change it.
I make NO APOLOGIES whatsoever for who I am and who I want to be in life.
Just because I am a cancer doesn't mean I am a pessimist all the time. I hate pessimists, and I am not people's therapist. I frankly, don't get paid enough.
I am not the parish priest either, and no it isn't okay to call me at three in the morning, because chances are, I will hang up on your ass.
I want to help people out who need it, and I will fight like a bastard for the underdog, but for now, the underdog is ME. So, I have to fight for myself before I can make anybody else's life any better. I am not wanting people to feel sorry for me or be their charity case either. I want to be able to say I DID IT. I want to be able to look back on my life and have more times where I said "I don't care what others think" and did something anyway, and less times where I passed up a good opportunity because I was afraid to fail or fall flat on my ass.
I am an optimist, and the way I see things makes me sick and irritable.
I have a lot of things that I NEED TO DO TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT AGAIN, and I won't rest until its all done.
I have A MOON IN ARIES, so I am all about the chase. People just don't seem to get that about me. I have a lot to say, and I have a lot that I WILL do. My thoughts on this are, (to society in general) either help me accomplish my goals or stay the hell out of my way. I will not be treated like I don't exist, and if I seem egocentric or self centered, well I always was, I just didn't let those around me see it because it hurt people's feelings to think that someone was actually happier trying to improve themselves or love themselves.
I think anyone whether they are an honest to God Aries, or just happen to be influenced by traits of that personality, tend to see things in a different light than that of the people who are always settling for something safe and cushy.
What the hell happened to taking chances and doing what you want to do, and getting the most out of your lives?
Don't tell me that we just feel that settling for making somebody else rich or happy while we work our stupid mundane jobs at Walmart or a call center or even some office is gratifying. If it was, would people be on anti-depressants or would school be so God awful that we wish we didn't have to go to improve ourselves?
We see that the so called "biggest sin" is laziness and un-productiveness, but I see the biggest sin isn't in not doing something for work as far as a nine to five job, but being lazy in terms of not realizing your full potential. By going to law school because acting may not pay more in terms of your finances, even though you hate being a lawyer and wish you could be making films instead. That, my friends who believe in a higher power, a "God" if you will, is where you tend to pull off being lazy. That, is the part of sloth and faithlessness that then ensues as a result of thinking that playing it safe is always the option.
I like to try to challenge myself in new and exciting ways, intellectually, and whenever a thought comes into my head I develop it to see where it goes.
I was lucky to have a mom that didn't feed me crap phrases such as "stop your daydreaming, idiot" and "that's ridiculous".
I want to end my life (not suicide, but live my life to it's natural end) having done something to contribute to this society, but if by contribute to society you think I mean be some lackey at an office, you are sorely mistaken. I could be a doctor or a lawyer if I wanted to, and I could do a hell of a lot better in law school than anybody there. I am competitive, its IN MY NATURE. Just look at how I excel in things I give a crap about. But, law school is a boring waste of time, so I can't be bothered; same with medical school. Not my cup of tea, if you will. I am tired of looking at other people and thinking "wow, I wish I was them, because I'm so unhappy with my life". I will one day be making my own films, and doing creative ventures, because I have the tools to succeed, I just haven't figured out how to use them fully. I am not a "victim" I am a "victor", I will not cry "woe is me" I will triumphantly shout "I will persevere". Why? Because, defeat is simply not an option nor will it ever be. If I believed in accepting defeat, I would have ended it all when I was 14. But, obviously, I am still alive.
I believe in forgiveness, but only if someone has demonstrated that they are truly sorry. That's why I am mad at my brother because of how he treated my mother in the past after when I was a kid, he emphasized that I must ALWAYS RESPECT MY MOTHER.
He's a hypocrite, and if he ever reads this I DEMAND HE APOLOGIZE to my mother for acting like a hypocrite. That is why I am ashamed to associate with him; not because of what he did growing up (that kind of stuff I am past now).
Growing up, he was like a mentor to me, teaching me things such as respect, and to a degree, honor. So, when I saw him act with such dishonor, I got very angry and disillusioned with him. Sure, he has been and always be a pain in the ass control freak (he's a Leo). But, if he realized why I was mad, and could see that one doesn't just do something like that, then I could forgive.
You see, I hold grudges because I see a valid reason to. I'm a person that sees what is wrong with people and is all about trying to move on, but if someone doesn't realize their mistake, then they're cut off from speaking to me.
I know, some people are of the opinion that you should forgive someone just because "God told you to", but the same code that makes me hate myself when I have done something dishonorable and doesn't let me let it go until I have made it right makes it so that when someone has been dishonorable to someone I care about that I cannot forgive them until they not only realize their mistake, but try to do better. To show that they are sorry, rather than just no longer mad. What I see is he acts like he's doing her a favor by talking to her. Maybe I am wrong. But, until he feels guilty for that terrible stunt he pulled with mom, then I am inclined not to forgive and forget.
I will be successful and I will keep an open mind about the possibility of not giving him the "you don't exist" treatment. Until then, let's hope he realizes his mistake and my life will go on regardless.
Thanks to those people reading, its cheaper than therapy. (although, shrinks here are covered by MSI).
have a good day.
