My reaction during and after the Funday Pawpet Show "reviewed" the new Fursonas documentary:

I liked the documentary myself. As the FPS cast stated, I don't agree with the director's recording at AC without permission. However, the presentation was more balanced than some of the media portrayals of the fandom. Some of the FPS cast members said they didn't watch Fursonas or intend to, but they seemed to jump on the bandwagon of hating anything not showing Saint Kage as perfect. I got tired of all the salt being thrown on FPS and in the chat room, so I'm chilling listening to JaSonic's stream until RadioLawn begins.

I just remembered today is my parents' 53rd wedding anniversary.

2. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before?
Attended furry conventions.

One confession

You know the movie "The 40-Year-Old Virgin"? In about a month from now, that title will describe me.


I've signed up for employment at a few more companies. I took an online telephone simulation test for a position at Deluxe Checks. I had taken this before because I remember the three "callers," including an uber-stereotypical New Jersey caller. I cannot pay my bills when my current weekday job only schedules me for 5-10 hours a week.

Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.

1. :o

2. -_- zzzzz

I checked my e-mail account this morning. I saw a message from my boss regarding the weekend shift where I originally asked someone to sub for me, but I ended up being able to work that weekend. I know I didn't handle it perfectly, but I honestly didn't know the sub didn't get my phone message until a few hours before the shift or that he rearranged his schedule to do the shift. My boss made it sound like I deliberately lied about needing a sub by calling me "the boy who cried wolf." I sent a reply explaining what had happened since my boss only heard one side of the story.

Just three more of these...

Day Eight: Three turn-ons

1. Self-confidence. I know this is something I lack, but I am working on it.

2. Patience. It takes a while to really get to know someone. If you're going to reject me after only seeing me for one hour, it's not my loss.

3. Sense of humor

My feet were actually warm last night when I went to bed. I re-made the bed and folded one of the thicker blankets in half to provide an extra layer of warmth.
jcollie719: (tiger jump)
Day Seven: Four turn offs

1. Dishonesty
2. Continuing to do something I’ve asked someone to stop doing
3. Pretending to be dumb and thinking it’s sexy
4. Put-downs (whether it’s serious or kidding around)
jcollie719: (Lipton Lolly)
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot.

1. My dad
2. My mom
3. My current therapist
4. Tino, my co-worker
5. [livejournal.com profile] bucktowntiger
jcollie719: (Default)
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
1. Allowed so-called “friends” (real life and online) to take advantage of my good nature.
2. Signed up for business opportunities which turned out to be pyramid scams.
3. Tried to be like other people instead of just being myself.
4. Given up on my dreams in my 20s and early-30s.
5. Gone to Adams State College.
6. Disrespected so many people when I was a teenager.
jcollie719: (Craig Ferguson Ooooo)
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.

1. What else is on T.V.?
2. I hope I get a large tax refund like I did last year.
3. I really want a collie fursuit.
4. Why can’t I live *there*?
5. Will I ever become completely independent?
6. What other jobs do I qualify for?
7. I wish I wasn’t allergic to dogs or cats so I could have one.

I hope I can get some decent hours at Luce this week, including this coming weekend. My therapist had a good idea for my upcoming Toastmasters speech in January. Since I was having trouble writing a speech about my new job, the therapist suggested writing about my success in Overeaters Anonymous.
jcollie719: (I Ruff You)
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

1. Look beyond my outer flaws and get to know the inner me.
3. Don’t constantly bring up sex. It makes me uncomfortable.
4. Same with religion.
5. Same with politics.
6. Hugs are always welcome.
7. Having a sense of humor is a plus. Having a twisted sense of humor is a BIG plus!
8. You don’t have to like EVERYTHING I do, but having some common interests is nice.
jcollie719: (Default)
Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

1. Thank you for all you continue to do for me.
2. Your words of wisdom have gotten me through some tough times.
3. I still haven’t forgiven you for humiliating me, and I probably never will.
4. Your advice has helped me discover new things, meet new people and take more chances.
5. When you tell me you’re going to call me next week, I’m actually expecting you to call.
6. Yeah, I get it: you’re horny. What other emotions can you express?
7. Some people need to work more than one job to make ends meet. I’m not giving up the weekend job I love for you or anybody.
8. When I create a nickname for someone, that means the person is either really horrible or really great. You’re one of the great ones.
9. It’s really pathetic that you feel the need to constantly call and spew hate.
10. Although I never met you in person, thanks for the years of entertainment.

Day Two: Nine things about yourself.

1. I played the cello in grades 4-12 and was a member of the local youth symphony.
2. My lucky number is 12.
3. I hate when people sneak up on me.
4. I often fantasize about doing something illegal to make money.
5. I’ve lost almost 40 pounds in the last 5 months since joining Overeaters Anonymous.
6. I occasionally have major panic attacks over the most minor details.
7. I took courses in improv comedy and performed a show with the class in 2004. Some of us reunited this year for a reunion show.
8. I’m single but still looking.
9. I’ve been on a few cruises in the past and would love to resume taking them.

* Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper.
* Explain in no more than five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
* Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

I've always used unusual pictures for my wallpaper, so I figured "Asphyxiate Me Elmo" would fit nicely. This was one of the "new stamps" featured during a bit on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" years ago.
