My Sincerest Apologies
I think that'll show up. It's just a picture of my yard. I would like to tell you about what a wonderful day it is, because you guys are clearly inside your houses reading a blog. If you can't smell what it smells like out there, you should. So open a window. I'll wait.
If you would like to see more of these pictures, check my flickr account here.
I feel really terrible about my little spat yesterday. I wanted to apologize. I've decided that I appreciate your candid opinions, and it helps me to better myself. So once again, I apologize.
Nextly, I feel it necessary to answer a comment on yesterday's post. I'll copy it so you guys can appreciate it.
"i realize now isn't the best time to risk offending you, but
you have accused every single person in the world except for Carissa and Jeff of trying to impress people out of sheer selfishness...
maybe some people do well for themselves, not to impress others...maybe some people study to get in college, not boast about grades; seriously, it's pretty impudent and presumptuous of you to wish a plague upon others and demand that everyone shut up because they are, as you are implying, obsessed with "impressing others"
since I am neither Carissa nor jeff, I assume you consider me one of the people in the world that do everything out of the want to impress others, and thus a target of your "JUST SHUT UP", I would like to inform you, since you don't seem to realize, that yes, humans are self-obsessed but not to the point where they should be told to "so just SHUT UP!" for being human
seriously, consider reading your most...considering your target is "ALL THE REST OF YOU", that is quite possibly much much more offensive that whatever the "anonymous coward" said
and one could argue cursing is cowardly too."
Well I will answer this rather [my mom read my blog and decided I had to remove this word. America isn't that much unlike Russia. Stupid censorship. It wasn't even a bad word] comment in sections.
When this person says the part about doing well for yourself, I don't even know what he's (I don't know whether it's a girl or boy, so I'll just call the person 'he') talking about. Not once in my post did I repremand people for studying. I am quite aware that people study and do well for themselves, and I have nothing against it. Bragging about their success, however, is self-centered.
Next paragraph: Why, yes! Humans are self-obsessed. It's so simple now! I was telling people to shut up for insulting me, not being self-obsessed. In fact, you're proving my point. You are telling me to do what I told them to do. I told them not to yell at me for being self-obsessed. You were a moron and have trouble comprehending things so you decided I was telling people to shut up because they were self-obsessed. And you told me to not to yell at them (and you) for being self-obsessed.
Next paragraph: I disagree. Since I was insulting many people, the insult has less meaning. Pointing out one person, say like how you decided to criticize me, has more meaning. Also, shut up isn't an insult. It's a command. However if this did hurt someone's feelings (other than whoever posted this comment), I apologize. For a second time.
And lastly: cursing is not cowardly. It's a way to make people understand that you are serious. As yesterday I was feeling serious, I decided to curse. Criticizing someone anonymously, however, is cowardly.
Okay I'm done with that.
God that movie today was horrible.
