hello Space-Pals!
just sitting here listening to The Matt & Pat Show episode 10
and laughing my ASS off!
I'd love a shirt that says Throat-drops! lol
ok if you want to listen go to

anyway....i guess i'm on a lameness of people kick right now
cause something happened to me last week that was just really lame
and it's making me wonder about society... i worked at 4am on Wednesday 02/13/13 and was pretty tired
and really running on fumes but i needed to get my prescriptions.
so i went to the drug store and i was waiting in line
and the guy in front of me, at the counter getting his meds, turns around and yells
'if you're gonna stand that close kiss me at least but really give me some space!'
so i backed up without saying anything to him.
now i had no idea that i was standing too close to him! I was just standing
and zoning out and waiting!
now if this guy had turned around and had said 'can you back up you're standing too close'
i would have said sorry i had no idea and would have backed up.
this guy had created a scene and gone to an extreme or was dramatic instead of being civil.

(ARIEL WAS the name of the sorcerer chick on Thundarr the Barbarian!)

so i posted this on my facebook page and asked a question -  is society becoming more
dramatic and extreme? or was I just being too sensitive?
Most of the responses from my friends said what They would have done in that situation
but, with the exception of 3 people, they didn't answer the question.
Now the fact that my friends supported me and basically told me what a Chump this guy was
made me feel really good, supported and I thank all of them for doing that. You guys ROCK!
My brother was the first one to reply and answer the question and i thought that was Awesome too!
However, in telling me What they would have done they answered the question.
Most of them would have been just as if not more dramatic or extreme as this guy at the drugstore.
So that tells me that Yes society IS dramatic and extreme.
this is not the only situation i have been in or have seen that makes me think this recently.
The shooting in CT recently, how people respond to each other at my job, how they deal
or not deal with each other at the mall, how people (including me) would rather get tickets for
a movie at a computer terminal instead of going to an actual person, and even how people drive
(this last one not so much cause people change A LOT when they get behind the wheel of a car).
It just makes me think that I don't belong in 'civilized society' and maybe that DOES make me
too sensitive! I don't know!
All I know is that if I had been at the counter getting my meds and someone was standing too close
to me I would have turned around and said "MOTHERFUCKER! BACK THE FUCK UP!"
i would have said  'you are standing to close please back up or take a step back? thank you.'
although I would love to go all extreme on someone
and there ya go....

That's all for Now, Space-Pals!
Remember: Life and 'Society' is Insane. You're Not.
