Okay so I made this challenge and I don't know if anyone will do it, but it seems like these are touchy things for a lot of people, I see fights on tumblr about most of these constantly. But I like knowing peoples opinions on these kinds of things. So if you're doing it, tell me or reblog it so other people can or whatever. Thanks.

Anyone who spends an hour Photoshopping their iPhone inbox for internet lulz is (in the wise words of 4chan) trying too hard. It wasn’t even a particularly clever shoop, or a funny shoop - it’s on par with lolcats, dude- and furthermore, Jordan Rubin was not the first person to even shoop his inbox badly! I bet there’s some goon on SA who’s lamenting the decision not to watermark his iPhone inbox shoop right now. They say there’s nothing new under the sun, and this is also true of internet comedy. Most of it has been done before, and better, and it didn’t even take the original creator an hour.
You should have probably let Rainn steal this one. Now your friend is just going to be known as the dude who got John Mayer to baaaw on his behalf.
Also we're listening to a mix I made from '06. It's got LCD Soundsystem, Legowelt, Gorillaz, Mu, random Bollywood stuff, Scissor Sisters, and a mix from Attitude City on it. What the fuck I was such a hipster.
My whole life I’ve hated going to bed. I like falling asleep instead. Falling asleep is so much better than going to bed because you don’t get tangled up in the logistics. Falling asleep happens for you, even if it means waking up at eight to the sun assaulting your eyes while a block of metal…
Clearly, following John Mayer was the best decision I made the week before last.
Jesus fucking Christ. That little girl is fucking 11 years old. I don’t give two shits if she’s annoying. You have to find the irony in posting pics of her with a dick in her mouth while constantly talking about her parents deserving to go to jail. Re-blogging child porn is just as wrong. Its nasty and I don’t want to fucking see it. I am SEETHING right now about this garbage. Its so fucking disgusting.
They’re really doing that? Okay it was like, amusing for .3 seconds and then that kid started crying and really, internet? Are you so badass that you can only feel good about yourself if you’re making a little girl cry? I don’t know what this kid was doing on the internet unsupervised and making videos like that at 11, but it’s time to let this one go, you guys.
What is or has been your favorite gift you've received? What's the story behind it?
How can you pick just one gift someone has given you? This means it’s a good question, V. Very good. Hm. Someone gave me a giant whole salmon for Boss’ Day once. I was completely horrified, but it’s a gift I’ll always remember - mostly because it weighed like 40 pounds and was a giant dead fish.
I think that the best gift anyone has ever given me has been friendship, though. Maybe that’s corny, but it’s the one thing that really means the most. Rings get misplaced, postcards (from Alex) habitually get lost in the mail, Beejah and Ween give me too many gifts to ever pick a favorite, and my internet BFFs live too far away for small-time gift giving. But everyone has given me friendship, or has listened to me when I needed an ear. That’s priceless to me. I know I’m not always the easiest person to get along with, and that I tend to open my mouth before thinking things through sometimes, so that makes it even more valuable. So yes, there you go. It’s 3am, so my eloquence is in the garbage can at the moment.
I've spent all night worrying and feeling bad. When I grow up, I want a job where I do not have to ever stress out like this. I don't know how much longer I can do this because right now the acid bubbling up in my throat makes me think it's killing me. Fuck.
Though some would argue that it’s my BlackBerry or laptop, my favorite inanimate object is actually my stuffed tiger, Dely. I’ve slept with him every night since I got him at 8 or 9. His whiskers are gone and his once-white fur is now gray, but I’ll never get rid of him ever. I’m going to be 85 and sleeping with a stuffed tiger. Deal with it.

This is an awesome article explaining why people are getting burned out on Facebook. I think it’s really interesting, because most of these reasons play a part in why I won’t use it. I don’t want some ho I beat up in high school to know about my life, I have different social groups that don’t like the same things, as well as subgroups by trust level (bffs, people I talk to on a regular basis, people I just know). Then if you status WAT DO? and only your internet friends respond with ‘KILL IT WITH FIRE’ or ‘SHIT BRI/X/’, your RL friends (if you have any, what with all the chanspeak) will feel alienated. And OH MY GOD what if you hated Inception and ranted about it on someone’s wall and then their friends read it and called them out for being friends with someone who did not love WHAT WAS OBVIOUSLY THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE BECAUSE OF ALL THE FLOATING AND THE SRS DIALOGUE? What then, people of Facebook? What. Then.
I don’t even Myspace, and I probably won’t Google Me when that shit rolls out, either. My social networking consists of AIM, email, texting, and RL adventures with my friends. Not everyone I’ve ever laid eyes on needs to know what I’m thinking or eating at any given second. In return, I don’t care about your drunk pictures or your hilarious statuses. If they’re any good, you’ll do the right thing and copypaste it into the AIM window or screencap that shit for me - or you’ll just tell me about it next time we have lunch. You know, like how people in the olden days used to gossip.
Everyone swore I’d oh my fuck love it, right? Wrong. Mostly I just wanted them all to die and for Leonardo DiCaprio to wake up on the Titanic and for Ellen Page to wake up knocked up. It does hold a record for the most eyerolls I’ve ever delivered in one movie, though. I don’t understand how people were so entertained. I mean really. And how was the ending shocking?
I should have just slept through it. Note to self: next time your eyes threaten to close 5 minutes into a movie, trust your gut and choose unconsciousness.
I got Twizzlers in the mail from Megs. Still waiting on Alex love but I have faith that the post office gods didn’t eat it. I have things to send out that will be sent this week, as the post office is unavoidable for much longer. Expect something awesome soon, all of you.
