Get out of my face, PLEASE.

One much wiser chump than me once said "what you resist, persists"...Something to ponder perhaps, me thinks...

This week so far has been testament to some pretty impressive demonstration of mind over matter in that I believe I've done a really good job not to whack anyone in the face...or scream and hurl obscenities and pepper spray.

However, in the cartoon videoscreen of my fanciful imagination I am hurling a big tall tree log in whopping 360s clearing a nice comfy "personal bubble space" wherever I walk cos it's a concept that city people don't friggin seem to understand. If an entire room is empty, why must some chump always have to sit next to me....are we really living in a society that is so lonely and fearful of being alone that people don't realise I appreciate some damn friggin SPACE?

You know those cartoons where some animal gets hunted and has to keep running from room to room and closing the door and leaning on it...that is literally how I felt yesterday. And today wasn't that much better. I have a new found appreciation for being able to come home and know that when I close that door nobody will bug me for another 8 hours or so.

It's been interesting anyway talking to my cousin who also suffers "social issues" - she observed that if anything her issues manifest in reverse ie. she is SO weird it makes people STAY AWAY rather than an object of intrigue to be bugged!

If anything what I am craving most lately, is a nice comfy 3m diameter space to move (I take a lot of space). Or at least a minimal 50cm buffer zone so I don't have to smell people's personal odours or have them step on my feet lean on my arm or strike up spitty conversations in my ear since they were too socially idiotic to properly interpret my blatant lurches away.

I came up with a conspiracy theory that maybe I am radiating lots of good energy and that is why it seems like loads of people are drawn to come so close to me lately...they're coming to steal and sap my good energy!!! :P Well whatever the case, all this "social interaction" is leaving me feeling somewhat drained...

Not sure what is up recently but obviously some part of my "misanthropic vibe" ain't broadcasting strong enough cos people keep impinging on my sacred personal bubble...

Which is making for one very *CraNkY* Z!

I can't wait to get out of the city...

oh my


You know what I did the other day? was at the laundry mat and I saw a nice-looking couple (Mexican) and so I went and bought a sandwich next door and then came back and specifically and on purpose (and with their permission) sat right with them ('cause I like company). There were hardly any people there. Plenty of empty tables, too =D
=D

It took a while, but we did end up talking (never sit next to people with cell phones if you want to hold a conversation) ;(
kinda interesting, and entertaining.

(me <--- used to be shy. Shy no more.)

You have a funny way with words :)

Maybe its because you have been wearing those short shorts lately?

I'm off to Bali tommorow. Just me and my surfboard for 10 days. So I will be having some nice alone time. Can't wait!

HO, you're lucky I got used to you through the online medium...I'm sure if you had tried to talk to me in real life I would have found you incredibly creepy...

I need to get over that tho- that is probably the only way one meets interesting people when you are open to everybody creepy and all...lol

FG Have fun with the waves in Bali- I am sure, sure envious...

p.s I am not crazy enough to wear short shorts outside of my house and the gym...besides, it's really cold these days...
