The five-letter F word

Tags awkward, weird

I know it's been forever since I've posted here, but I figure this is something I really need to get off my chest:
  • It's an English word.
  • You type it by striking three keys once and one key twice.
  • As an adjective, it's harmless. As a noun, it has rather…odd connotations amongst the majority. O_o
  • There are entire websites dedicated to the "fad"/"meme"/"subculture"/"whatever-you-want-to-call-it".*

Tags awkward, rant, weird

Blargh. Yet another rant. I swear, the "rant" tag in my tag cloud is gonna get so big as to totally obscure the other ones eventually…

Please tell me I'm not weird...

I don't know why I'm posting this...

I seriously feel like a creep. No, really.



Go ahead, laugh. ...or do whatever it is you do when you see someone post something so amazingly immature (e.g. eyebrow raise, head shake, sigh, any combination of the three, etc.).

I'm @#$%ing 19 years old and still have a soft spot for cartoons, particularly anthropomorphized animals...tell me that...

I've decided that I'm going to either a) take a break from LQ for a while (and I really mean it this time), or b) try to actually contribute more useful content to the forums (I've been spending way too much time in /General lately ).

I figure that if I'm going to be posting anything about religion/faith, existentialism, philosophy, or whatever other topics that I find "sensitive", it'll be either here (in this blog) or just not at all.
