What the fuck
does "let's agree to disagree" mean, anyway? It doesn't resolve anything
. All you end up doing is walking away from the conflict. It's just a pointless platitude - and what if you don't want to
"agree to disagree"?? I don't want to disagree, I want you to realize you're wrong
, because you are
So there. Venting session over. Not that this has anything to do with any personal interaction with anyone, or even me interacting with random people online... I was just reading a "heated" discussion in a newsgroup, and one of the posters used that line. I totally got irked after reading it. Maybe because I'm tired and sweaty and I'm SO FED UP WITH THE HEAT! GAH!!
Summer can be over any old time now.
In other news, I've hit a plateau on the weight loss. I'm pretty sure I'm losing waistline and trimming up okay, but not moving on the scale is quite frustrating. I'm not being as strict with the calorie counting as I should be, and that's the result. I've been slacking on the exercise too, but mostly because of the thrice-damned ninety degree weather. Fuck all. I will eagerly dive into the pool at my parent's house when I head down there for birthday vacay this week.
High points since the last journal entry: got my Cowgirl Chocolates
in the mail (mm, Belgian chocolate and cayenne pepper); went to an awesome wedding - great company, food, music, and dancing fun; went to FuGaKyu
for a great sushi dinner; and got to see the "new and improved" He-Man cartoon.
Damn that cartoon was amusing. Revamped versions of all the 20 year old toys, horrible cheesy dialogue (worse in some ways than the original cartoon), total ripoffs of Star Wars in backgrounds, music, and action scenes, and a totally anime look and feel to the whole thing that just made it seem goofy.
Best line ever: He-Man lets Skeletor go, but Skeletor is a jerk and shoots the ledge the king is sitting on. King falls down a bottomless crevasse, and He-Man DIVES AFTER HIM. Using his immense power to accelerate gravity, he catches up with the king, and they fall... the king says:
"He-Man! You can... fly!?!"
to which He-Man replies:
"Uh... well... no."
and then he loses his grip on the king, and they continue to fall.
That was just plain quality entertainment right there, I gotta tell ya.
