i KNOWWW, huh? it's my own personal demon, really.
but hey... i've been working with my therapist on my lil overseriousness problem. i realized i needed therapy when i was readin cosmo
one day and i took one of their questionnaires... **how to tell if you suffer from seriosity on BCB
**. maybe everybody else should give it a try. it's all in good
seriousness. check every symptom that applies to you
___ i am a strong believer in freedom of speech... mine
. however, when asswads say mean things to ME, i respond in properly indignant fashion, cuz they need to be shuttin the hell up.
___ i deserve automatic respect. it's all these other fucquers that need to be earnin it.
___ i'm always going off on bile-laced, nasty rants against people who've cut me to the bone. since i take myself so seriously, i wouldn't dream of being tongue-in-cheek. no warm disclaimers, jokes or related silliness. no winkwinking allowed. no chummy PMs off camera. my targets must recognize my dread righteous fury.
___ if someone takes offense at one of my rants, i cover my ass by saying i was just being silly ("oh dear, did i forget to put smileys after 'you fatherfucquin fucquefaggot'
___ i matter too much to use myself as the butt of a joke. i never admit fault. i never apologize. face it: life is so much fairer
when ya never hafta say yer wrong or yer sorry.
___ i am constantly asking for people to be banned... people who bug me. this is for the board's well-being.
___ i start threads announcing to everyone just how offended i am at something. i am that important. in such a thread, i explain how person x has crossed the line of ALL lines (meaning my line).
___ whenever i feel beset, i campaign for others to take my side, on the board or in PMs to my lil frents, maybe even at other places. i call for others to defend me against the awful insults unfairly thrown at me. i insist others take a stand against an odious presence that threatens board integrity. i use many exclamation points.
___ if i don't get what i deem to be adequate, outraged support from others who take the situation just as seriously as i do within 24 hours, i throw a fit. this shows how extra
serious it all is.
___ i make a habit of throwing fits. i enjoy playing the drama queen/king. at some point, i will bitch about no one really luvvin me, understanding me or taking me seriously, i might even mourn the loss of BCB morals, right before i flounce.
___ i flounce here, i flounce there, i flounce up, i flounce down.
___ before i flounce, i announce the fact that i'm about to flounce, just so everybody knows how deathly serious (and important) i really am. this gives em one more chance to jump to my defense or bubble over how much my groovy self will be missed.
___ i expect my friends to try to talk me outta flouncing, just to show they really care about me.
___ i expect my real
friends to flounce with me, just to show they really, really care about me.
___ i'm always carping on how the board has gone to pot and fallen from its once golden, exalted heights. i lament in somber tones the loss of all the right people... those grand (and important) few who made the place great and not some dive for riff raff. o, the standards of yore.
___ i am so sensitive and insecure that others feel the need to walk on eggshells around my fragile ego. everyone would rather indulge me than hafta mop up the mess afterwards if i lose it.
___ if anyone does
make fun of me or have a joke at my expense, i take it as a direct personal attack, worthy of total meltdowns, lawsuits and police protection.
___ i hold serious grudges. i single out the people i think have abused me unfairly in the past. i never let it go. i jump on em every chance i get, especially if others are giving em flak for non-me reasons. i call my crap justified, cuz i'm just giving what i got in the first place. i don't see a shred of hypocrisy in this.
___ when folk attack my musical taste, i get defensive. if i say someone else's music is crap, i'm just being honest.
___ if i crash a group activity (say, a cup or a synch listen) cuz i think crashing is funny, then anyone in that group who objects just needs to lighten up.
if i'm part of a group activity (say, a cup or a synch listen) and someone crashes, then that person's a fucquin jerk.
___ when i interact with other BCBers, it most often takes the form of (a) they're pickin me, or (b) they're askin for it.
___ i don't hafta worry about anything i do or say, cuz cmonnnn... it's just a board. none of it matters. who cares? all's fair in love and BCB. mind ya, i will demand apologies from others when they've gone too far. i will take it upon myself to tell people when they're outta line (my line). i will let loose whenever i want, but i will selflessly serve as the moral compass for others when they need a lil talkin to. after all, *i* know when folk should be taking things seriously; namely, whenever i do.
___ i take things too seriously cuz i'm just a humorless asshole in general.
___ the mere possibility that this quiz might be referring to me anywhere along the way offends me. some of these symptoms were obviously meant as attacks on me personally. how DARE she? how COULD she? i thought she was my friend
, the hurtful bitch. something must be done about her.
___ this quiz clearly only applies to those fucquin jerks i fucquin hate. they fucquin deserve it.
___ i wanna run away with footy. seriously.results:if you checked
yer a pretty normal freak. maybe you had a sucky day. it happens. you'll get over it.... 4-7:
okayyy, ya may wanna think about gettin over yerself.... 8-11:
um, get over yerself already....12 or more:
christ. get THE fucque OVER yerself. how does anyone fit in the same room with yer head?
i don't mind admitting i had to check every single symptom. sniff. i tell ya.. i need to learn to relax, take things lightly. i need to see the humor in things and the value of staying upbeat. frankly, i need to enjoy life before i give myself an ulcer or a coronary or sumthin.
... how'd you do? ... anyone? p.s. when i use the phrase drama queen, i am not actually talking about that poster known as drama queen, who isn't really much of a drama queen at all.
