i'm a thief.

i stole this off someone else's blog (http://farmers-thoughts.blogspot.com, i think). i thought that jordan and ivan would be very interested in it, and since the guy who typed it volunteered that he stole it from someone's ICQ or IRC convo, i figured it was fair game.
A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired.
very funny. and so true.
so here's a rant.
when the heck did people get such and such years young?
the pitcher was 40-years young, and blah blah blah ...
when i'm 40 years old, i'll be 40 years closer to death.
right now i'm 24 years closer to death.
that's 24 years old. i don't need my ego my be stroked to tell me that i'm not old. i know i'm not old. when i'm 86, i'll be old. 86 years old, to be precise. not 86 frigging years young. bullshit.

Funny, sad and oh so true.

I shall quote a song in response to this and it gies "sad but true."
