Okay, so I was eating some M&M's today, from the small, miniature packets. Do you realize this size of M&M packets is called the "fun size"? Fun size. I wouldn't call eating fewer M&M's as being FUN. In my book, the more the merrier with M&Ms but hey, that's just me.

You know what would be fun? Not having to interact with those annoying people who like to tell you to smile. "Jeez, smile for a change why don't ya?" Who the hell are you to tell me to smile? I spend a long fucking day of talking to classmates, instructors, clients, students, family, friends, blah, blah blah, blah blah, and I will have you know that like 90% of the time, I'm a pretty fun, cheerful and pleasant person to be around who usually has a smile on my face, despite the dimwits I have to talk to all the time. So if one day I'm not quite feeling 100% CHIPPER, give me some slack, ok? Hell, I work like an 80-hour week, so if I want to not smile for 1 out of 60 days, that's my perogative.

What would be a good comeback for the annoying, "Why don't you smile?" Probably, "Because I'm looking at your sorry ass."

Heheh. That was bloody funny. Good rant.

Being such a cheerful, charming and delightful person myself, I too feel the pressure to remain unflappable in the face of seriously flap-inducing events or people. At such times, the family motto comes in handy - insere in fundus impedimenti tui, translating roughly as "stick your problems up your arse". It's a great comfort in times of need.

yes, you are cheerful, that's true. Charming, well, that's another matter. ha ha, totally kidding! ;)

I like that motto, perhaps remembering it will cheer me up the next time I have to deal with such a situation. :)
