Print Story Stupidity is easy to catch

This could be me. It's not me but I would......I might do something stupid for the same damn reason.

So I have a stalker magnet attached to me. I don't know where it is on me or how to get it off, but the proof of it's existance is every where. I mean who else has ex-boyfriends/girlfriends from 20+ years ago still contacting them? Obiviously it is me though I don't know why it is me.  Enough said

So who comes up with these new shows on TV. Hot Shots is a show about gun enthuses. Dance Moms is a show about a crazed dance teacher and obsessive moms.  Picker Sisters is a show about 2 designers that vist junk yards and homes looking for rusted junk. It's all weird.

So a couple of political hopefuls are concerned that this country (US) is on its way to a (not sure this is the correct word but ...) revelution. Of course this a scary possibility. I am even more worried that our country is in its weakest position with too many enemies that are practicly knocking on our door. Paranoid, totally.

Damn those Geckos! by purr (2.00 / 0) #7 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 01:17:33 PM EST
I don't know about me being too nice, but thanks for the thought.

They really need to stay out of the entertainment industry.

Well several political figures are suggesting that history shows that right before great empires fall the economy starts to tank first including government money. Then second is the division in the armed forces. So far the economy has tanked and tanked again. Government is in sessions now trying to find money to keep paying the armed forces which are currently active in many areas all over the world. Sooner or later this is going to cause a stir of revolt in the ranks.
Life is good when you are young. Then it sucks when you are old. And then you die. Live it while you got it.

the high poverty rate by tierrasimbolica (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 02:13:00 PM EST
is definite food for rioting, i think.  according to the most recent census, 1 in 7 is living below the poverty line in the U.S.  but i also think that any significant riots here would eventually be contained and would probably stave off an actual revolution for a while.

Probably it is wrong of me to say by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 04:18:55 AM EST
that you said about exes contacting you from the distant past and my first thought was to wonder what my first boyfriend is up to now.

He isn't on Facebook, in case you were wondering, so I gave up looking. Maybe that's your problem.

my mother tracks mine by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #6 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 11:51:51 AM EST
And keeps me informed of progress.
I find this disturbing.

I checked up on another early boyfriend. by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #10 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 03:46:33 PM EST
He works offshore for a shipping company and his girlfriend is pregnant. His Facebook wall is also entirely open.

My mother keeps track of all my old schoolfriends - and all the kids I didn't like, come to think of it. I find this disturbing too. Maybe they grow attached to the people we are attached to and find it hard to let go.

kids I didn't like by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #12 Tue Sep 20, 2011 at 03:45:59 AM EST
Yes, mine does that too. Example conversation:

"X was asking where you were and how you are doing"
"X...x....ah yes, that's the cow who used to mash my head onto pebbledash. I am so flattered by this interest"

It is like when I left there, reality disconnected and they all ran along in a totally different universe.

It is so bizarre to me. by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #13 Tue Sep 20, 2011 at 01:13:58 PM EST
I ran into XXX's mum yesterday, says my mum. She suggested you stop by the next time you and he are in $city at the same time.

XXX, you say? That'll be the guy who went to prison having been convicted of over a thousand counts of possessing and distributing child pornography and who admitted to assaulting a seven year old boy? Yeah, I think I'm busy that day.

I have many psychobabble-informed theories as to why she does this.

My ex from 20 years back is hounding me on FB. by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #4 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 08:52:39 AM EST
I don't have the heart to block her though. I think it's therapeutic for her.

i would love it by tierrasimbolica (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 10:36:49 AM EST
if i could be friends with all my exes.  not necessarily the "let's all go skiing together this weekend" kind of friends, but friends at least to where there's no awkwardness between us.  of course, it's not always possible, but it would be nice. 

Skiing weekends by ucblockhead (4.00 / 1) #9 Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 03:24:03 PM EST
Once I met my stepmother skiing.  On the slopes was her ex-husband (my father) and two ex-boyfriends.
