I think it's hilarious how nearly everytime someone defreinds Bibble they defriend me too. Even if I haven't said anything. Because I'm his girlfriend, I'd assume. I don't recall ever seeing anyone drop Brandon after they dropped me, though.

This is where I got that assumption that I must not be interesting, if they only keep me around because I'm his girlfriend then drop me when they drop him.

Funny, ne?

No it's not that you're less interesting, just less offensive (standoffish). I'll defriend you if you want. Wait, no I won't. I'd be lonely.

It's funny, because that's one of the few things Brandon and I drastically differ on. Even in simple phrasing, we choose very differently. Here's an amusing example--once, I read a book that no one had given me possitive feedback on (via LJ), but I was enjoying anyway. When I finished it, I understood WHY people may not have liked it, but I still thought it was great. Brandon was at the computer at the time, and I asked him to write a quick post for me, saying "I don't care what anybody says, I still liked it". What he wrote for me was, "Nobody knows what they're talking about, I liked it". I think you can understand the difference.

I used to scold him for coming on a little too strong, but I figured it would be worse to go around trying to soften his comments, then I'd just seem like a jerk. He expresses himself his way, I express myself my way, and in the end, it doesn't hurt us at all.

You can always defriend me, and then friend me again a week later. That's cool too.

that's one of the things that i love about you two. sometimes when two people are involved in one of these "relationships," they become too much like each other... to the point where they may as well be the same person. and that's just annoying.

you two, on the other hand, remain yourselves. you each retain your own distinct ways of dealing with things, talking, and acting. and i love you each individually for who you are. :)

"I feel special, on accounta I added you and Brandon and Patrick all at the same time, as a result of your contributions in this argument with Stephen (antithesisdim)."

i remember that! we were talking about love, if i recall.

it's so weird that he said that. I guess it does come off that way online...he's more direct then you or something. I don't really know. But it's hard for me to perceive it that way. In person, I see it almost opposite. You as more opinionated, and him as more ummm...flexible or questioning. or something. That sounds bad, I don't really mean it like that. But the tones you each take when you talk... I feel like you're more direct, especially with your enunciation, and his thoughts and speech are more explorations than conclusions. Does that make sense?
Mellenabsentmammoth on June 1st, 2004 04:24 am (UTC)
It does make sense. You're right, totally. We discussed one time how it seemed that he and I flip-flop when it comes to how we portray ourselves online and in life. Also, in real life I'm very spontaneous, but never in writing, while he's just the opposite.

Either way, it's still all good. Thanks for noticing ^_~

well what the hell is that supposed to mean?!

jesus christ.

hey, I'll see you tomorrow! Is that ok?? Will I get to meet Alex now? It's all so....sooooo exciting.
S0n of N00nbibble on June 3rd, 2004 10:01 pm (UTC)

sounds great to me :)
Mellenabsentmammoth on May 30th, 2004 07:51 pm (UTC)
Though, I don't think he's standoffish exactly, just very direct. I take the Japanese-style vagueness approach whenever I want to say anything I think might be interpreted as offensive. I also tend to write and re-write those kinds of things to the point where my original emotion is watered-down enough to keep tempers from flaring.

Basically, I'm a wuss, hehe.
phenyx on May 30th, 2004 07:19 pm (UTC)
I'll defriend him and keep you! I shall make a grand example of it.

... no, wait. he's not on my watchlist anyway.

... too bad.
Mellenabsentmammoth on May 30th, 2004 07:24 pm (UTC)
He's an interesting guy, actually, you should check him out, add him, then defriend him to make me feel important.

Or, alternately, you shouldn't do any of that.

Thanks for being on my friends list regardless.
ex_ilk on May 30th, 2004 08:06 pm (UTC)
Noone ever seems to drop me anymore. I guess I need to speak my mind a little more.

By the way, do you ever sing "crazicreek" instead of "crazy beat" while you sing along with that song? I just put it on right now and I couldn't resist.
Mellenabsentmammoth on May 30th, 2004 08:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, all the time. In fact, everytime I sign into LJ I do it. Or my email. It's too much fun.

I'm such a dork, hehe.
S0n of N00nbibble on June 3rd, 2004 07:14 pm (UTC)
i also do this dorky thing.
ex_randalgra425 on May 30th, 2004 10:31 pm (UTC)
so how do you determine if you've been defriended?

Re: defriended?
Use Joule.
Mellenabsentmammoth on June 1st, 2004 04:16 am (UTC)
I usually notice when checking into my profile or something. Often it will be a while before I notice, but I look at my profile whenever I sign into LJ at work, so that's usually when I see it. Like, "Oh, yesterday 10 people were friends with me, today there are only 9. I wonder who dropped me?" kind of a thing.
Torin/Darren WhoEverwolfieboy on May 31st, 2004 07:10 am (UTC)
Re: you and youness
Well, originally, I friended you because you were important to the Bibbleness. But anymore, you are an entity in your own right and it wouldn't even occur to me to defriend you in relation to defriending Bibble.

But then, I couldn't defriend him. I'd still have to read him and it would just be extra work...
S0n of N00n: isn't that nice??bibble on May 31st, 2004 10:13 pm (UTC)
Re: you and youness
aw even though everyone hates me?? :hugs!: when fox defriended me like ten people followed.
Torin/Darren WhoEverwolfieboy on May 31st, 2004 11:04 pm (UTC)
Re: you and youness
I don't understand that. Much too much like follow the leader.

Somehow, I don't think everyone hates you; many think you're just froopy!
S0n of N00nbibble on May 31st, 2004 11:15 pm (UTC)
Re: you and youness
i'm not too worried. confused, perhaps at times, though. froopy is good! i think everyone is froopy! and no-one!
S0n of N00n: isn't that nice??bibble on May 31st, 2004 11:16 pm (UTC)
Re: you and youness
i'm just glad that you're still around, is all i mean.
Torin/Darren WhoEverwolfieboy on June 1st, 2004 03:44 pm (UTC)
Re: you and youness
Like I said; you'll have difficulty getting rid of me.

I saw a bumper sticker on a car today that said 'protest slave labor at your local mall' and thought of you and absentmammoth.
