Something bothers me about comparing people's appearances to famous… - Speak Friend and Enter
Grammar and Lord of the Rings
Something bothers me about comparing people's appearances to famous people (yes, this idea sprung from reading Lizzle's survey. Its like, so what? Are famous people by default the most beautiful, and by comparing someone to them, you are saying it makes them even more attractive? Its like, hello, I don't want you to think of a famous person when you look at me - LOOK AT ME ONLY!! Way too much attention paid to famous people. Um, yeah.

There was a story in the Sac News & Review yesterday that is furthering my opinion that all newspapers suck, even the ones that are trying to be "alternative". It was about this guy who hung himself in a jail cell after being arrested for like attempted robbery or something. He was a heroin addict and blah blah and the sister wants answers to why the guards weren't checking on him and such since he goes through withdrawal. They were practically trying to hold this guy up as an example of decency, and villifying the jail. Um, hello, he killed himself. That's really the bottom line. I probably won't make any friends here, but I just don't have any sympathy for people who do that. If someone is really serious about offing themself, they're going to do it. All this "why weren't they looking in on him? they could have prevented it!!!" is such bullshit. I say good riddance.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled Friday.

I compare my friends to what famous people look like too... or whoever I see somewhere around here, even I don't exactly know them.
