Sorry I didn't write today previous to this.
I just had a really crappy day. I was swamped and overwhelmed at work and stressed out over my money stuff, so much to the point where I basically broke down crying at work for a few minutes. It was just continuous phone calls--most of which were weird--and running around. After that, I felt like crap, so I pretty much went straight home after I had a meeting with my counselor and my brother about the money stuff. I still sort of feel like crap, so I might not be online long after this.
I have one more day at work this week, and I hope that tomorrow will be better than today.
Aside from that, I slept most of today and tonight. I did get most of the stuff for Thanksgiving dinner, though, when I went out later to get it at Walmart.
I trust that most of you enjoyed BD2. I'll check the spoilers thread if I get time or, rather, feel like it. I'm still a bit wiped out from today.
I'll give some comments, though.Songbird
: I know that most people are at least seemingly decent, but I look at the media and such as representative of the darker impulses of people. I mean, what sells in the media? Violence, sex, and scare stories. But then again, there has to be a demand for that crap, and demand comes from people. You know, garbage in, garbage out, and it's a vicious cycle. That, and for a world that nowadays preaches tolerance and respect, you don't see that from people all the time. With Kristen and Rob, I see a lot of intolerance and disrespect, the polar opposite. And this is based usually on wrong impressions and misinformation kept up by the entertainment media.
And as far as the sex and violence goes, I admit to playing violent video games and Bio-Booster Armor Guyver
is pretty damn violent at times for something aimed at teenagers, but the violence is fantasy (Guyver is Sci-fi stuff, after all) to me, and it's not real. I have a much more, no pun intended, violent reaction to things like rape and murder being portrayed, because that crap happens every day to people, which is why I refuse to watch the news anymore or read newspapers.
And as for sex, I don't mind looking at women who are attractive, because, well, I'm a single guy. I can't refute that. And I don't mind watching sex scenes in movies as long as it's of a romantic nature--so the Twifilms are safe to me LOL--or at least of a consentual nature.
I guess that I'm more pissed off at how the media portray R&K and how many people buy it without thinking, because that does go back to how I was treated in the past.Susie
: At least I have 9 months to figure out what to do with the money that I can't keep in my bank account. I can only keep $1500 in it. I can't really put in my brother's account, but as I said, I should be able, in theory at least, to spend the amount I'm over.Sarah
: I liked your hoodie. I hope that you'll post more photos once you get it finished and ready for your BD2 viewing.Austin
I hope that you'll be able to be back with us soon. Sort of getting lonely manning the fort as far as the man factor here Mel
: I don't think we've ever met, so
I'm Sean and I'm the main male here, though Austin has joined us, he just hasn't been able to post often recently because of him being busy. I hope that you'll be able to post here more often soon too BD2 Madrid
: I think that most of you will like the choices that Kristen made for today. Her outfits were a lot simpler and less complex than the London pantsuit. She wore a black and white mini dress for the press conference, with black and white peep toes, a Yellow Doir for the premiere and back and white pumps, and a T-shirt and shorts with pumps for her appearance on that TV show she was on with Rob and Taylor. So it seems that maybe Kristen realized something that I've said about her before--keep it simple and she'll shine. That works for Rob, and It's always worked for her. I liked the fact that she does take risks with fashion, but a lot of the time, simpler is better. She's just naturally beautiful, and what plays to that works best, and sometimes, simpler is better.
As for Rob, he too kept it simple, and like with Kristen, it was to his advantage. A grey suit with a dark blue shirt and tie for the premier, and a grey suit with a plaid shirt for the TV show and press conference. And Rob in a plaid shirt
The simple things work totally fine on Rob, but at the same time, I'd love to see him some day make some of the less formal choices like Taylor made, just to see if it would work. However, Rob is older than Tay by a few years, and there's just something about Rob in a suit that I just can't get out of my head as far as saying "that's awesome--keep it up Rob!"
Maybe he's simply that dashing in a semi-formal suit
One thing I did notice about Kristen was that she seemed to make sure her nail polish matched her dresses, at least until today to an extent. She had her nails done gold to match her dress on Monday, then black to match the pantsuit in London and for the press conference today, and they matched her shorts today. Of course, Kristen did wear mis-matched polish in that her toes were still painted gold, but that did match sort of with her Doir, though with closed toed pumps, you couldn't see it. I do have to say that I like the mis-matched nail polish look on women, though, especially on Kristen (duh!
) and when punk rock girls do it--the latter usually on both their fingernails and toenails. But then again, what's what I like about nail art--women can get really creative and have fun with it, and that's why I like it and would love to have a GF who's into that stuff.Everyone
: I'll be headed back to bed soon, because I'm just wiped out and drained still. Maybe a few hours of sleep will do wonders for me. Aside from that, Thanksgiving is ready aside from the turkey, which my mom will buy. I do have work tomorrow, and I have a few things to finish up, so I'll be going back to sleep soon to rest up for work.
I'll be back later
