AI aftermath

It's funny when people don't quite read things the way you intended online.  Especially since there are a number of people on my flist that I've "known" for a while, I tend to forget that we have never met in person and you may not exactly get my sense of humor!  A couple people mentioned that I sounded "bitter" about "American Idol" -- I certainly was not overjoyed, but I do somehow manage to keep perspective.  A glorified talent show, albeit one I enjoy, is not something to get massively upset about.  Even if it did, I now know enough about me, my emotions, my reactions, and my values to better recognize when something is being overblown in my mind.  Such things are not worth getting riled up over, plus my tendency is to rant about something for 10 minutes and then get over it.  Something has to affect me on a deep level to really stick around and venture over the line into "bitterness."  I'm a pretty easygoing guy, overall.  Hopefully, most people who know me for real recognized the posting as being mostly facetious.  I mean, c'mon -- asking Katharine McPhee to run for president should have been a dead giveaway! :P

I was highly amused by your McPhee posting. You convinced me to vote for her. ;)

I didn't take you seriously but I don't watch American Idol either :-)

Surely you knew I wasn't all that serious when I said you jumped the shark?

Don't call me Shirley

I kinda figured. *said dryly* I think I know you well enough from real life to recognize that we were mock fighting. If you had called me a "stupid f---ing moron" or something, there might be trouble. Saying I jumped the shark is not all that offensive, IMHO. :P

"mock fighting"

Yep, that's what I thought, too. Glad we're on the same page.

Shocker...

I understand completely SPK. Still funny to see people misinterpreting your wording. It's not like you over emotional in the first 10 minutes when something strikes you. (memories of Goldeneye64) :)

I kinda guessed that you were being sarcastic about the whole thing- as was I about you being bitter... just to letcha know ;-)

Well, another person left an anonymous comment saying "bitter much?" that I deleted. Still, I figured I'd go ahead and address the issue. Glad you didn't take it all too seriously. :P
