Yesterday's fun sight of the day: a sex toy shop in Laurel. Name? Love Craft. Uhm. Who would buy a dildo at a place called Love Craft? I'm scared.

There have been some great reviews of the Gibson Jesus flick. Not the least of which I found here and here. I'll go see it if Jack wants to but otherwise I doubt it.

Apparently, I want one of these for whatever the next gift-giving holiday is.

I have a homework assignment from my therapist. We talked alot about jealousy, foundations of such, and how I react to it in an unhealthy way. Good stuff. She said I'm very self-aware. Well, duh, what's more fun than being self-aware? I have many fond memories of the early years of my self-awareness and hanging out and chatting with keryx and being totally superior to everyone due to our massive self-awareness. Or maybe we were just making up for the fact that we were nerds. :)

Self-Awareness Is Fun, Kids!
oh dear ghod. i might just have to stop in at love craft, for sheer novelty value if nothing else. not to mention keeping an eye out for tentacle-sprouting dildos.

it's always nice to get positive feedback about things like self-awareness. (hee, at the risk of sounding condescending, i'll add my vote to the "you're very self-aware" statement! >;)

Oooooo...I love the Leo Icon. :)

I've got to call shenanigans on the implication that I was self-aware at 13. I think I was living in some sort of social holodeck where everything was about me (er, but maybe that's just 13, not a commentary on my persistent self-obsession). Nerdy, yes. :D

I think what I meant is, we spent alot of time tossing around words like self-aware, not realizing just how pre-teen pretentious and not actually self-aware we were being. :) The sentiment was meant with a little twinge of sarcasm because man, if I met my 12 year old self today, I'm pretty sure I'd slap her upside the head.

I'd just buy her clothes (if I met my 12 yr old self, that is).

I don't know what street, its in a scary little shopping center between the split in rt1 north of main street. I am guessing it is more a porn rental place than anything else.

Re: Cthulu Ftaghn!
I'm sure their dildos are innocent... just like Innsmouth was a quiet little seaside town. ;)

That post-coital Innsmouth look.

At the very least, it should be a point of pride for them to stock the area's largest collection of tentacle porn. *g*

what's more fun than being self-aware?

Or more basic? And yet apparently there really are people who reflect less on their own lives than your average gerbil.

So what are the healthy ways to react to jealousy? I'm guessing none of mine qualify. :P

I hope to all things holy that no one anywhere considers that a point of pride.

Healthy ways to react to jealousy: as a motivator, apparently. With a desire to better yourself. As opposed to with a wish for the objects of said jealousy to shrivel up and die. Huh! Who knew!

as a motivator, apparently. With a desire to better yourself.

But what if you think you're fine, rather superior in fact, and it's just someone's poor judgement in not recognizing the fact that's driving you up the wall?

That's not jealousy then... that's something else?
Mar. 2nd, 2004 09:56 am (UTC)
Narcissism? *g* But I think you can be jealous of the attention A is giving B without actually evaluating yourself as inferior to B. If you were at a party and your SO spent the entire time flirting intensively with somebody who you honestly thought was unattractive, not especially pleasant, and kind of dumb, wouldn't you still say you were jealous despite the fact that you in no way thought she was better than you? I mean, I'd be annoyed and rather disgusted too, but I'd say definitely jealous as well.

I'm not sure I could actually own something called 'Nostromo.' I blame Ridley Scott. ^_^

There's an alleged skincare/manicure place near me called Skin Skedaddle. Explain that!
Mar. 2nd, 2004 09:54 am (UTC)
I want my skin to stay on thank you very much! Eeek!

That is SO cute. I'd want an octopus vibrator and perhaps a collasal squid one.
Mar. 2nd, 2004 10:44 am (UTC)
That shop has been there under different names for a bit. The new name actually scares me more in a "craft" sort of way - like you would find a kit to make your own vibrator with popsicle sticks and a science fair motor.

Mr. Wizard never made one of them things!

I do know people who crochet lingerie, but that's actually kind of cool... probably alot cooler than anything you'd find in the Love Craft.

Eww, Pickman's Model. Ugh.

I'm blind!

Carla's dad (who despite being a minister is of some Jewish heritage) actually thought the Passion was OK. He's had some previous negative experiences with the Catholic Church and the whole "who killed Christ thing," so I assume the whole anti-semetic thing about the movie must be way overhyped.

Personally, I didn't like the book, so I'm not going to go see the movie.

On a totally different subject, I used to be very jealous. But one girlfriend I went out was really into SciFi/Fantasy cons and Markland, where I learned to "share and share alike." After that, jealousy was pretty much gone!

Jealousy: Oh I went through a poly phase. It's sooooo not for me. Unless I want to wind up in the looney bin. :)

I would buy a dildo at a place called Love Craft. Where is it?
Mar. 6th, 2004 09:28 am (UTC)
