Would my flist buy a used car on my recommendation? Apparently not. Apparently my powers of persuasion really suck, based on the dead silence that greeted my last post. (And yes, I also went over and checked dominiquelechic's lj and found the same three comments to her picture post that were there before I tried sending you guys over to take a look. So I guess it's a really good thing I don't have a job involving sales, isn't it?

In other news, I'm typing this entry at 7:15 a.m. on a holiday Monday (Columbus Day for you non-U.S. types). I went to bed at 2:00 a.m., telling myself I could sleep in because of said holiday (and also because it's the start of a week of vacation for me), and I didn't set the alarm. So what happens? I wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, as the saying goes, at 6:30 a.m. *headdesk*

*tries to look on the bright side* I've been saying I wanted to roll up my sleeves and tackle some housework (the newspapers and magazines have been at it again and are threatening to take over the entire living room), so I guess today is the day to do it. And then perhaps I'll treat myself to movie this afternoon. Okay. See you all later after a shower and some coffee. *blows kisses*

Note to Tavi: Jen was apparently in Paris partying Saturday night, which is why there was no answer when I tried calling her at 11:30 p.m. her time.

Seriously, your first comment was fine, lol. I'm not going to like you less because there was maybe one typo in it. ;-p

And yes, I get that that's what you think but it's not how most people see what you and your friends do. She posted under a RPG character, she uses first person narrative, etc. It's RPS. If say... Aline was doing the same thing in her own personal lj, using third person narrative, it would be viewed as something entirely different. I know you think it's unfair, and maybe it is, but when she writes other posts with the same character having personal issues with suicide or sex or what not, then she can't expect people to take the picture posts any differently, unfortunately.

So basically, if you ever did the same thing with Bush as a character, posting in first person narrative? I know I wouldn't read it. If you were to do the same kind of post as yourself, in your own lj, in third person narrative? It'd be entirely different and I might even really enjoy it. Fair or unfair, it's a lot about perception. But like I said, it doesn't meant she didn't do an awesome job. Plus I'm only talking for myself, I'm sure there are a few other people out there who don't see it the same way. Me? I'm just really squicked, I can't help it, lol.

Fair enough, hon, and your second paragraph is a really good explanation. :-)
