Sounds link you might have torn a ligament in a freak misalignment (kind of like the guys who sprain/tear a knee/ankle when they jump), at worst, anyway.

No, I have shortened ulnas, meaning there's a gap in my wrists and I can't use my hands in certain ways for lack of leverage. Most of the time I barely notice it, but every now and then it seems like small bones in my hand shift a little (because they have too much room) and then it pops a lot and kind of hurts. It happens now and then -this isn't in the Average thread by accident- but I thought doing it while changing bed sheets was particularly pathetic.

Aaaaaaand the Hunger Games Rue Wank continues.

-> White person makes comment about how they didn't imagine Rue as black. Some are incredibly racist about it, some simply skipped the description or imagined her their own way.

-> POC friends leap to calling said white people racists and tout the clear and undeniable description of her being black in the book

Except... she wasn't really described as black. We were told that she "had velvety brown skin and dark eyes." Her hair colour is not mentioned. It is implied that she is black, but quite honestly, there is a lot of room there using only two adjectives to describe a person's looks, and rather unspecific ones at that.

Moreso, it's a Frame Of Reference Fail on the parts of both parties. It's odd that this becomes an issue now after that short story quiz I posted a while back about the character who said "my dark skin". "Dark" is relative. Even "brown" can be relative. What's pale to one person is dark to another.

As much as I hate whitewashing of characters (ugh... Avatar the Last Airbender...) this is such a ridiculous argument to be having about the race of a made-up, non-descript character. That said, the actress who plays Rue is cute as a button and I would not trade her for the world.

I found some video footage of the 1995 Israeli musical version of The Sound of Music that I saw as a child. I was amazed to find that my celebrity crush was there in the role of Friedrich Von Trapp.

So this means I must now find more footage, which is going to be hard since Israelis are shit at uploading old things I actually want to see. I do own the taped version of the musical, but it's currently in a giant cardboard box in my grandma's attic and the only way to get up there is with a shitty ladder.

Mom said I can get it when my grandparents die. Welp.

I'm -ing at the French presidential campaign before going to class. Watching videos of candidates milking the giant cow (my avatar), saying nonsense (we have one of them who want us to become Star Trek in the next five minutes), laughing at each other (or themselves) or all of the above (our Prez) has a certain entertainment value.

So I think this is average because, in my mind, it balances out to zero...

The bad news: my bosses and co-workers at my off-campus job have forgotten I've just started a quarter (they're in the middle of a semester) and think I'm on break. So I've just gotten about two days worth of work (at the bare minimum) dropped in my lap in only the last day or so.

The good news is that all that chaotic writing and editing will get paid at the slightly higher rate, since I got a raise back in February/March.

To be fair, Sakurelf, if the text you quoted is true, then she was indeed described as being black.

I get on tumblr to read some social justice bullshit on my dash and get genuinely riled up goddamn
I need my fucking enculturation or whatever fucking word that is

Here I go sounding like a privileged asshole:

I wish I had the money to commission the awesome artists I see for cosplay. So many talented people out there, and I want to be able to support them, but I'm an artist as well, so i can really only be all "Wow, yeah, I know EXACTLY how much work you put into that" and am unable to buy it.

Of course you are welcome to ream at me for not having medical bills, and being able to afford living space and food an internet and wanting to buy cosplay shit. But I want to support fellow artists out there, and I feel like going "I'd love to wear your stuff, but I'm broke as fuck" is kind of a Fuck You to them making a living as well.

You know, it's okay to acknowledge having little discretionary income after your basic living needs are met. It's not like you're saying "I'd like to buy your fantastic work but I spent all my 'fun money' for the week shitting on manatees with Exxon and Shell executives. Now off to my McMansion!"

You don't sound privileged, your sound neurotic. Colbert

I HATE BEING A GROWN-UP, DOOBIE. I HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR MYSELF AND THEY ACTUALLY MATTER. THIS SUCKS. AND FUCK, I HAVE HALF A YEAR LEFT OF SCHOOL AND THEN I HAVE TO GET A "REAL JOB" AND ALL THAT SUPPORTING MYSELF SUCKS TOO.

I just wanna be a teenager forever and have a small amount of disposable income to spend on aneemays and pocky and not have to do stuff like income tax. :<

If God would've meant our money to be plastic he would have wrote about it in the Constitution.

What I don't get is how all of the hippy tree hugging countries (which is to say, every country except Glorious Americaland) has gone to plastic money while we still use biodegradable paper. scratch
