Today I got my nails done, then went to Target and bought pajamas (set with boxers and a top) with a cherry pattern on them and new barrettes. I think I have an addiction to buying clothes now, but when you can walk into multiple stores and just BUY stuff... well! What's a girl to do?
Which brings me to another thing. I've been getting 'ma'am'ed a lot lately. This is highly disturbing. I am constantly told that I look much younger than I am (I think it goes nearly without saying that I act way younger, HA), and yet... the dreaded ma'am keeps being used. Those of you in retail, when do you ma'am? Should I be insulted? Am I looking older now? Do I have to accept this horrifying truth and begin acting my age? That might be impossible, though.
Along the road I take to work every day are a number of churches - at least six I can think of off the top of my head - and most are some denomination of christian. Right now, nearly EVERY one of them has something about The Da Vinci Code on their signs out front. For example: "De-Coding Da Vinci: Discovering the Truth" is on one of them. Every time I've driven past this (so ten times in the past week alone, I'm really not sure how long it's been up), it just pisses me right the fuck off.
Okay, first of all - FICTION. Say it with me - it's JUST a story. Sure, there may some things in it that are historically accurate, but that's true of a LOT of fiction, people. Often authors use a historical base for a story so that it's easier for the reader to 'buy in,' for lack of a better way to put it. In any case, this is hardly news and certainly not a cause for uproar.
Next, there are people who are saying that The Da Vinci Code is making them question their faith, to which I say GOOD. Is that mean of me? Probably. But let me get on with the offending-some-people portion of this rant and point out the definition of faith:
faith n. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.
So basically, these people are saying that a work of fiction is making them suddenly more logical and desirous of actual evidence, rather than just blind loyalty to an ideal? I'm sorry, but all I can say is that I hope it continues. In and of itself, I have no problem with people who believe in any sort of god or religion. The problems I do have are a) people who insist on pushing their religion on me or believe that I am a bad person/am going to hell/will corrupt their children/etc because I don't believe; and b) the fact that so many people who do hold these beliefs seem to be incredibly closeminded and judgmental (note that I said MANY and not ALL, kthx). The unfortunate thing is that I suspect that these people are not the ones who are finding themselves suddenly questioning their faith because of this book/movie. Still, I can dream, right?
Random Gentle Sex Master (RGSMf)
You're a nice girl, and you have lots of sex. It's therefore highly likely that you're attractive, and you're certainly outgoing & friendly. Plus, this healthy physical attitude of yours indicates deeper emotional well-being and stability. Unheard of. When guys dare to dream, they dream of you.
You don't get attached too easily, and, to wit, you're not necessarily looking for something long-term right now. That's a bigger asset than you know. Though, physically speaking, you're open to anything, you're keeping your emotional side well-protected. This means there won't be a lot of wreckage to clean up whenever you decide to settle down.
