I am confused by how much it bothers me that I cant get into Game of Thrones. It's one of these things were I think either Im too dumb to get it, or all the other people are watching a really bad show and comparing it to the bestest of shows out there? I understand that tv show and music and everything is subjective. But I'm still so so confused by it. I watched the whole first season, I gave the show three tries and I just couldn't get into it. And now whenever I hear people gushing about it I actually get angry because I feel left out. It's so ridiculous of me that a tv show is causing me so much distress. I've had this happen with other things everyone seemed to love, too. I once read a good critique of the show that made me feel less alone. Maybe I just need to get to know more people who dislike the show, too, and/or stop being so insecure about my own opinion so I wont need other people to validate it. Until then I'll probably end up watching the whole show and hating every second of it.


I haven't seen it yet because I'm pretty sure I won't like it. There's no law that says you have to like the same things as everyone else!

Yeah, what cq said. I haven't seen it but based on the discussions other people were having it sounded like something that would make me annoyed so I didn't even try watching it.

Simply_love - I hope you managed to get some peace at the library. Good luck with your final!

I have now gone from slightly annoyed to seriously pissed off. They finally went into her room, but then proceeded to play her instruments and sing. This is a common occurrence, generally I don't care. But she knows I have a final tomorrow, which is why when she told me he was coming over she said they'd hang out in her room. After over an hour of trying various things to be able to concentrate(ear plugs, white noise, legitimately plugging my ears with my fingers) and them just continuing to get louder/me more annoyed, I finally said something. And it hasn't even been ten minutes, and they're doing it again. OMFG. Yeah, this is her apartment too, but I feel like I should be able to have it reasonably quiet when I need to study. The only time I have ever asked her to turn it down/be quieter is when I have a test, and generally I try to study in the library to avoid this, because I know she is loud. I give up. I'm just going to the library. Staying here is just going to get me more pissed off, and I really need to be able to concentrate on studying.


(Sorry for complaining ppk, I just needed to vent.)


That is horribly inconsiderate of her! Good luck on your final!

OH HELL NO. And he took all the leftovers? He is definitely mooching. I like your idea about sending him a list of all the ingredients and telling him that this needs to be done at his place. I would refuse to do it otherwise. You can just say that you don't have most of those ingredients or enough of each. He is most definitely trying to get free food out of you for his party... which I'm hoping you're invited to. If not, then definitely don't feel bad turning him down.

this sounds like how my nights usually go...Mr. Fizz does not like garlic as much as I do, let alone secondhand garlic. Too bad for him!

The only reason that I stayed with my ex for so long was that he too loved garlic so I could happily chow down on a garlic mayo topped chip butty and he be happy to be smooching with me after it.

Back to work after 10 days off tomorrow. I do not know how I am going to face getting up at 6.30am to walk the pooch.

Hahahha, I'm not going to lie, my ex was a serious asparagus hat. But one of his (few) redeeming qualities was he had no problem with garlic (or any other smelly food) breath. Which was a good thing, cause I eat a lot of garlic.

It isn't. And right now the kid is in with unemployment working it all out.

If it happened in Oregon it's completely legal, unless it was actually a disability matter, because you can be fired for anything (or nothing at all) that doesn't count as discrimination.

But it sure is shitty.

Well, unemployment is already looking into it due to other complaints about this guy. And the fact that it happened the day after the jerk found out the kid was on meds... probably not legal. According to the unemployment office.

Regardless, he is getting unemployment.

I made the pizza bowl from IDI for dinner, then went out to run some errands. Walking back in the door, I noticed that my house smells almost exactly how I remember ground beef smelling (which is part gross, part nostalgic - I associate that smell with my parents browning ground beef for spaghetti sauce all through my childhood). I cannot for the life of me figure out what in that recipe is combining to smell like beef. I did use TJ's Italian sausages, but those neither taste nor smell beefy.

Some time ago I was in the middle of cooking when suddenly I started smelling beef. This was very confusing. I was not cooking with any fake meat or beef style broth. I was mystified. Then I discovered that my plastic cutting board was too close to the flame and was melting! It seems that melting plastic, at least that plastic, smells like beef, at least to my nose. Was there any melting plastic in your house zelavie?

VeganinBerlin, I hate Game of Thrones, and I looove fantasy and television and books, but I cannot stand the show or the books.

Weird! No melting plastic here. When I washed out the blender later, I smelled it again - so apparently it's the sauce. Baffling.

I just wanted to add: besides being bored out of my mind by Game of Thrones and the "i just dont understand it!!" thing, the whole porn-y/rape-y mixture gives me so much anxiety. And I guess I also feel alienated that other people don't notice or don't care.
