Hershlog

"Never date a viola player." -- Rachel Dratch, "Saturday Night Live"

I hope you're not going to take this lying down, leftyviolist! *shakes fist at TV*  The funniest thing about that particular sketch was a bit of an inside joke, the scene was a bar mitzvah party and Dratch referred to Natalie Portman's character as Hershlog -- her real last name!  "Portman" is her grandmother's maiden name, she adopted it while she was still a child actor to try to maintain her privacy.  And I never thought I would have reason to say this in a million years, but NP is actually a damned good rapper.  The successor to Eminem?

And now, to assuage leftyviolist's feelings, I shall participate in the meme she tagged me for ever so long ago...

Five Guilty Pleasures

1.) Sleep -- Even when I am not dead tired, I still like the warm, comfy mattress and being buried in blankets.  Sometimes, I don't get up and going as early as I should.  I wish I could be a bed tester.
2.) Age of Kings -- I keep playing this game!  I just like building worlds, then kicking the crap out of the computer.  I'm sure I would get my butt handed to me if I faced other people online.
3.) Schadenfreude -- "Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others."  I'm working on this, but I've found I sometimes revel in the downfall of certain individuals (or wish fervently that doom would catch up to them).  It's not nice, I know.
4.) LiveJournal -- I sometimes check it at work just as a quick distraction.  Usually when I'm on break, but also once in a while when I need to mix things up a little.
5.) Girls -- I know it's wrong to think of girls as objects, but mass media tends to shove that in people's faces.  I occasionally allow myself to indulge in the lust, but it's important to try to not give into those mental impulses.  Damn those hormones!

Everybody makes jokes about the violas. ;) For example: Why did the entire viola section stand outside the door? Because they didn't know when to come in.

Why do violas look like they're bigger than violins? Because violists have shrunken heads.

etc. etc. etc.

Actually, I'm quite fond of Garrison Keillor's Young Lutheran's Guide to the Orchestra and his characterization of violists.

*giggle*

Schadenfreude


You should try wishing them well or wishing they would become a better person instead, and see how that works for you. If that person was a better person, they wouldn't irritate you as much. I couldn't imagine harboring these negative feelings does anything to make you feel better (ultimately), and it's really all about what's better for you in the long run. ;)

Re: Schadenfreude

Yeah, it's definitely not a good thing. We talked about that in counseling, reverting away from negative tendancies to positive thought processes. It's just sometimes easier said than done! Like I said, I know it's not nice. :(

Guilty Pleasures

Mass media? What a load of crap! Where's your will power? Dignity? *shocked expression* How dare you?! Where are you're Christian morals and background? Quick, quick! Think thoughts of library work! Reflect back on your upbringing! Don't go down the tubes! Look for the path of light! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH:)
