See You In Hell!

bracelets, schmacelets...

I am SO sick of all those damn little rubbery plastic bracelets everybody is wearing. I guess Lance Armstrong started it all off with the "Livestrong" thing, and that was fine, but now they have bracelets for every fucking thing under the sun. I've actually seen people wearing so damn many of these multi-colored bands that their arm resembles those african tribes where the women extend their necks with, like, 327 metal hoops.

I would like to design my OWN bracelet, preferably black in color, that says simply, "Look! I have a plastic fucking bracelet!! So suck on that, bitches!!!"

I am currently wearing a burnt-sienna colored bracelet to support the end of the use of the word "fuck", and a taupe colored bracelet supporting the end of the use of the word "bitches".

This blog is not about lame attacks. It's about clever wittiness. 'take that' ? Who talks/posts like that?

Lein girls probably did that at one point, but I do believe it was when Amycita was known to wear Duran Duran buttons on her jean jacket... hmmm

Ms. Larson, sign me up for a paisley one!

Okay. Since this blog is read weekly by our parents, and is primarily a way for our relatives, (who are scattered all across the U.S.) to check in with the Leingirlz3, I think that we should keep the non-kidding hostility to an absolute minimum. Like maybe zero.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have beer to drink, and "Family Guy" to watch...

Okay, when put into perspective, I have to apologize for the "take that". As it was formerly used for the grievous fashion crime of wearing a Duran Duran button, my use of it regarding rubber bracelets was clearly overstepping.

My apologies. Tell your fucking family I said hello.

I am looking for a burnt-umber plastic bracelet to fight against us becoming overly self congratulatory and isolationist. I truly enjoyed the hysterical addition of random guy's comments to our blog. Afterall, this shit is on the internet. Now watch he's a fucking stalker or worse, like a Catholic priest...

Actually, the 'take that' wasn't used for the crime of sporting a button promoting duran duran, the statement was more often said during an era when we wore those buttons--when we were in junior high and slightly less clever.

Although, i do agree with Amycita and find the f'ing family statement quite fun :)

Ditto that on the say hello to your fucking family thing. That was some funny shit. But he should have added "bitches" to the end....more in keeping with the general tone of the post.

I don't know if you've noticed this, but here is Jege's Argument Strategy, in 4 easy steps:

1. Instigate, needle, and antagonize...

2. Argue vehemently for a while, until I get bored...then nod and say "right" or "good point" while I think about cats, or beer, or Jude Law shirtless....

3. Try to back out gracefully, with a "hey, why can't we all just get along" type of bullshit peace-and-love, let's all sing cumbaya approach...

4. And failing that, fake a seizure.

Men have to be very careful about tossing out the word "bitches" when directed toward women. It's kind of like a white guy using the n-word to describe a black guy. Dangerous territory.

So, be honest. Am I wrecking your blog here? I really enjoy reading it, but I don't want to mess up any family mojo you've got going on.

Boot me if you must. I'll just go back to posting ten comments everytime Thomas posts.

I don't think you are wrecking the blog, and I don't want to boot you.

Amy's note about the leingirlz blog not being so self-congratulatory and isolationist is a good point (See, here I am using Jege Argument Strategy points #2 & #3).

What think ye, sisters Lein? Are you two cool with this? Who needs a fucking hug?

And back to the bracelet thing, here is a link that says that these ubiquitous things are responsible for teenage promiscuity:

oh, i'm happy to have other people posting. i admit that i always have that initial moment of 'is this person a moron who's messing with us in a mean way? or are they just rather sarcastic and fun and have the potential for coming off a bit odd because it's the web and damn, can things come across weird w/ only text.'

But I think it is more the latter and having different voices and perspectives is always good.

I think that's 2 'no boots' and Amycita pretty much had a 'no boot-esque' post earlier. so it's a boot-free day....bitches ;)

I would like a bracelet that says "Support Thomas so he can pay off his student loans."
