What is this Featured Question malarkey? What is the point of it? Is it something to do with The Great Global Public having no imagination and a need for inspiration? Or is it just a phase that will run its course in due time?
*pats Xanga on the head in patronising manner*
I don’t buy into all the extra crap that Xanga spews forth. I love Xanga muchly, but it’s the simple and basic Xanga of old that is my lover. Sod the themes, the friends, the dashboard, the pulse and the locks. I like simplicity and uncluttered-ness [despite what my house might tell you … ]. Why [oh-why] do the folk here feel the need to try to convince me to modernise my Xanga every time I visit my Look & Feel page [which obviously I do muchly because I’m a Xanga Whore], when they can’t even make sure that the spell-check is set to English-English not American-English, despite the number of times I reset it?
However, I am a bit hypocritical by nature and therefore feel a sudden
desire need to answer this most recent Featured Question. This is mainly due to the fact that I was reading some of the entries and was absolutely appalled by the lack of thought and imagination that goes into some responses. My most favourite include …
Definitely [how does that answer the question?]; Oh, certainly not! [wtf?]; I don’t know; I’ll edit this later; Everyone’s family has.Duh.Kids don’t raise themselves [I note a lack of spaces in that one].
So, now you’re probably gagging for my response, yes? Oh, I shan’t disappoint you. Well, I might …
By rights I should be a man-hating, God-loving, Tory-bashing, teetotal, argumentative, f.ucked up self-harmer, with a need to find affection and love through sex with strangers. I should have trust issues [mainly with men] and should be aware of how vulnerable it makes me look by turning on the waterworks. I should never have the fear of losing an argument and should know that making it slightly physical can work to my advantage. The use of the word Fine! along with a look of pure contempt is a woman’s best line of attack.
However, I am none of the above. Except I am argumentative. And I do all the womanly emotional bits.
[Oh my God, you’ve started your period haven’t you?]
In reality I understand why a single mother shouldn’t be made to work. I know the value of money. I recognise the need for sibling rivalry. I know that love and nurture can make all the bad things in the life of a child seem far away and that true love is unconditional. I understand that it’s sometimes best not to talk about things that don’t matter because hurt is more painful than love and happiness more important than tears. I know that arguments must always be followed by hugs and that the people who love you are never more than a phone call or email away. I accept that everybody is a unique individual and that nobody can judge others when they don’t know the full facts.
I know right from wrong, up from down and how to tie my shoelaces.
I also know that I should wear clean knickers everyday because it’s hygienic. And that I should eat all the food on my plate because if I don’t some poor child somewhere over there *randomly waves hand about in direction of another country* will starve.
