Happy New Year I hope 2012 will be a great year for you. My comment came more from Twitter than Tumblr. I think its just hard to be left out when I want so badly to fit in & then my tweets & tumblr posts are ignored (this is not just directed at you but everyone.) I guess I'm not all that interesting (LOL!) but I had wanted to make friends & be a part of the "Leverage" fandom group.
hehe I feel that way sometimes with people too, so I kinda get where you’re coming from. I mostly use twitter for friends I know in real life now that I’m barely on there anymore, so I might have missed a tweet or two altogether. But I certainly am not currently intentionally ignoring anyone, not even the one dude I’m in a fight with LOL So my apologies that I made ya feel that way, but I will be honest, I hardly check the twitter these days so that could be why they are ignored. :)
You seem to be a very confident & opinionated person whose not afraid to speak her mind. I think also though, you seem sort of self-absorbed & "clickish." I don't want to hurt your feelings, but you did ask!
lol no hurt feelings… I’m not sure what about my tumblr gives the impression of self-absorbed or clique-ish (I am soooooooooo anti-clique in reality!!) but that’s interesting to hear that somethings I do or say give off that vibe. But I am actually nothing like that in the real world, but thanks for the heads up, I’ll have to watch out for that.
I am DEFINITELY opininated! Got that from my Dad… but confident… eh, I suppose that depends on the situation. Sometimes I am, sometimes I’m so not.
Thanks for the message though Anon and Happy New Year!
Honest opinion: I love your blog (especially anything related to Leverage or American Horror Story). I love that you're so honest but still so kind. When I first started watching Leverage yours was one of the first blogs I found on tumblr. I thought, "wow, these people are so nice. I'm going to love this fandom" and really I do. So thanks for being such a great "queen" to this awesome fandom. Happy New Year! :)
Well, it is my pleasure to be the Queen. And from the moment John Rogers blessed me with the name, I have tried to be the best Queen to the fandom I can.. which is to be kind, but honest, like you said. I have been very fortunate and I never wanted anyone to think that I had let this attention go to my head…. and more importantly, I didn’t want the attention to ACTUALLY go to my head lol. But I adore all of my little Leverage children hahaha and I am glad to hear you are enjoying all my posts!
with the exception of a few who HAVE at least responded with a simple, I can’t I’m sorry… I’m pretty much pissed at EVERY local friend who has a car right now.
And frankly, I am sick to fucking death of dropping everything to help friends and getting NO ANSWER when I ask for help. Or being called a beggar or whiner when I ask for help. Every ride, every drop off, pick up, house sitting, baby sitting, pet sitting, plant sitting I have EVER done is getting tallyed up in my mind. And yea, I know people miss facebook posts. But after THREE posts… and even one with a photo cos facebook prioritizes photo posts… NO ONE LOCAL FRIEND WITH A CAR HAS STEPPED UP? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? I get that picking her up from the airport is a BIG thing to ask. But from Beaverton TC to home? that’s less than TWO DAMN MILES. but if she takes a cab, thats $20 I have to cover for rent for her. If I have to pick her up from the airport after work, thats a good $20+ of my gas gone.
Now sure, it is frustrating that before she even touched down in PDX, her problems are causing ME grief. But it’s not totally her fault. Most of her friends don’t have cars either and the ONE other one that does flaked out. So while I wish i could say I was shocked, I’m honestly kinda not.
But I AM SHOCKED at how NONE of MY friends are willing to help. and like… now im getting the, i dont have a car but…. or the my car is dead but… and im like, omg i love you but if you dont have a working car, obviously you cant help and thats fine. but i know there are people just sitting there going, ugh, i dont wanna. id have to put shoes on. >.<
Every muscle in my body tensed up when I first saw it. When I replayed it for my roommate, I couldn’t watch it again. It’s the only part of the whole show I’ve never been able to watch again. I can’t. Too much. Lost all ability to can. Too many unpleasant memories come back with that.
