No real directions, but this isn't a place for debate. It's a place for RANTIN' AND RAVIN'.

There is a rule: There is to be no calling out anyone by name in Rants, Chatter, or on the Meme itself. This only produces an atmosphere of animosity and it is no longer tolerated. If you see any names being ranted about, please link us at Page-A-Mod. Thanks! :)

Please do not use this post or any other posts in the meme for sharing of download or streaming of links that aren't the official source of the content.

Anon posting is most definitely allowed, but not required.

MY WOMB HURTS.

(Anonymous)
AND SO DOES YOURS, PROBABLY. AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH.

HERE'S WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT: TAKE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS, TAKE GENERAL PAINKILLERS, DO SPECIFIC YOGA POSES, DO SOME EXERCISE, DRINK TEA, MAKE A HOT WATER BOTTLE, GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR.

SORTED.

IT'S ONLY A WOMB IF IT'S GOT A FETUS IN IT. NONE OF MY OTHER BODY PARTS CHANGE NAME WHEN THEY HOST A FOREIGN INVADER, SO MY UTERUS DOESN'T EITHER.

ALSO, WHY DON'T MORE WOMEN WITH CRAPPY PERIODS JUST SKIP THEM? IF YOU'RE ON BIRTH CONTROL THAT PERIOD IS FAKE ALREADY.

I hate you Mall Kiosk people. I just want to buy one thing, why must you bust my personal bubble and get in my face and follow me like a stalker. Even Moriarty would say you're taking things too far.

I used to work at a mall. They were awful. In particular one set of brothers who had recently immigrated from parts unknown to me to start their business in the US. They sold these huge Mylar balloon/frisbee things that were actually kind of cool but OH MY GOD I could not walk through the mall to get to my store or go do the deposits at the bank in the mall because they were constantly in the face of anyone who was walking by. About once a week I'd fill out a comment card at the mall customer service desk to complain and one time I wrote "this mall now feels less like a shopping center and more like a gaudy bazaar." And then later I found out that one of my classmates was dating one of the guys, and she told me that he was from Turkey, and I thought, oh dear lord, now my customer complaint card seems so racist.

I know, I know. Cool story bro.

Ugh, I kind of hate myself for this.

Wait to go, self. You go on Omegle and pretend to be a guy (Yeah, okay, it's a guy day. But you probably aren't even bigender so just stop) and then you actually start talking.

Dammit, don't let the conversations bleed out past Omegle when you're... Doing whatever this is. Because it's just going to piss people off.

Sigh. Finally getting up the guts to go to the gym again, and my work hours are getting slashed. So I have the time, but the money is dwindling.
Still, I want to start working out. I think I'll chill at the cheapest gym I can find until I can get a second job--and/or a third, if anyone will just give me hours.
So, sarcastic yay for the stress of finding another job. At least now I have more experience. That counts for something, right?

Work out dvds and hand-weights are a good replacement for the gym until you get your job back.

An intellectual exercise

(Anonymous)
What would happen if there was a full rant post, no new rant post and a prompt freeze simultaneously? Would my socks get folded?

Re: An intellectual exercise

(Anonymous)
THE INTERNET WOULD EXPLODE

AND MYCROFT WOULD STOP LIKING CAKE

It's my first time filing my tax return!

It's also my first time lying on my tax return. Fuck everything.



(Yes you all can make the same argument about how the tax code is inherently stupid and unjust, but fuck it, I still like not putting false information on my federal documents. *sulk*)

Don't do that. That's always how they get you. You can be a mob kingpin and control all the moonshine from Joisey to Chicago, but the federal tax fraud is what will get you sent to Alcatraz.

I actually am quite introverted. However, I have a reputation of being very extroverted. When in a social situation I tend to talk a LOT.

At a party today I saw some friends I haven't seen since high school. They're still friends with the host and this is the first time that all of us have been together. I just. Ugh. I didn't say anything horrible but I'm just like, oh, man, what, why do I talk so much. I try to say "and what about you" and let people talk but even so, I just get motormouthed, and the thing is, people find me really funny and entertaining (I KNOW that's what someone who is the OPPOSITE of that would say, so you're just going to have to trust my self-awareness) so their laughter kind of spurs me on and then I talk MORE and UGH.

::facepalm::

So now I'm sitting here in my little office room, happily alone, and I'm just like, self, look at your life. And I really want a glass of wine (and I have some wine downstairs) but I almost never drink and I've never drunk specifically to erase a specific unpleasant emotion.

And that's so DRAMATIC because I drink like a bottle of wine every 3 months or so, I'm surely not an alcoholic, but really, it seems an unfortunate precedent.

Maybe you're ambiverted? It's the best/worst of both worlds.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO RANT ABOUT BUT I JUST WANTED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE POST BY ADDING A COMMENT IN ALL CAPS AND SCREAMING. HERE IS THE SCREAMING: AAAAGGGHHHHH!!!

ME TOO RAARGH!! WHY WAS THE NEW POST SO FAST? I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO THINK OF ANYTHING TO RANT ABOUT YET!!

I don't know what annoys me more... USAnons who keep forgetting about the NHS, or BritAnons who assume everyone everywhere has access to health care.

This post makes me sad. Everyone everywhere should have access to health care.

HOW DO YOU WANKERS WANK?

(Anonymous)
So lately I've been more interested in penetrative stimulation rather than just clitoral. The problem is, I can't climax without a good fantasy, and concentrating on getting my fingers in just the right place to get me off distracts me from the fantasy. So I start trying to get back into the fantasy, but then I realize a few minutes later that I'm just laying there with my fingers unmoving inside myself because I can't focus on touching myself and thinking dirty thoughts at the same time. So I end up giving it up for a lost cause, rubbing myself off, and then sulking about my botched fingering.

DAMMIT I JUST WANT TO COME WITH SOMETHING INSIDE ME.

Re: HOW DO YOU WANKERS WANK?

(Anonymous)
A double-ended dildo, just because it's long enough to comfortably control without having to arch my back. It's made of cyberskin and it's meant to be bent in half for vaginal/anal penetration at the same time but i've just always used one end as the handle. A double-sided dildo shaped kind of like a feeldoe has a similar benefit, that I can use the short end like a handle, but it's not as convenient. I still rub myself off for the big finish but it's nice to have something inside me sometimes and you can get the angle right with the dildo, it just takes practice.

You spilled your stupid all over my prompt. If something sounds familiar to you, fucking Google it.

FELLOW BOOK HOARDERS: How do you store your books? I have about three times as many books as my bookcases can hold, and the best solution I've been able to come up with is stacking them on the floor against the wall, which isn't the most stable arrangement I've been buried under bookavalanches more times than I care to count.

I know the rational solution would be to weed out the uninteresting ones, but I've already done that and I'm still overloaded. It also doesn't help that I work at a thrift shop managing the book section, and my boss lets me take a few home free every week.

I'm a book hoarder. Usually they're just stacked up on any flat surface, TBH.


Boxes, maybe?

A fine line

(Anonymous)
I've seen people rant about people posting their fic too much/too soon after previous updates, and I've seen people rant about people not posting their fic right away, or after a long period of time. It's confusing. I have a chapter finished but I just posted the other day. Do I post now, or should I wait? Should I give people time to read the last chapter, or will I risk people losing interest?

I wish there was some rule or something to make things easier, like only post once every three days or something.

Re: A fine line

(Anonymous)
I'd say post it. There's a lot of disillusioned readers out there who don't read WIPs because they get abandoned a lot. If you establish a steady pattern of updating, people will read it. There's no hard or fast rule and honestly, if you posted the whole thing finished tonight, no one is going to protest. In fact, they would be quite glad.

I think the sticking point is when people post WIPs and never finish. If people rant about people who shouldn't post their fics right away, they're probably aruging "don't post at all unless you're finished."

Religion and Freemasonary Rant

(Anonymous)
I was ambushed by a man (let's call him HG) leaving church today (yes, I write kink and go to church, sue me) asking me why my husband wasn't there. I told him that he wasn't there because the last time he was there, HG ambushed him and told him that being a Freemason was anti-christian. I told HG that he was entitled to his opinion even if it was wrong and stupid, but that we didn't want to hear it and he should keep it to himself. I pointed that people use the Bible to justify all sorts of things like slavery and homophobia but that doesn't make them right. That seemed to shut him up. He would probably burst a blood vessel if he read some of the stuff I've written.

ACD had his moments of going on and on about religion and freemasonry. (Study in Scarlet and Musgrave Ritual and Valley of Fear being a few of them) I tend to ignore them and go on to enjoy the rest of the stories. It's harder to do that when someone gets up in your face about it.

Re: Religion and Freemasonary Rant

(Anonymous)
I agree with your rant, but mainly just wanted to say: I too write kink and go to church! *hi-fives you* I have never actually written kink in church, but I've plotted it out when the sermon went on for too long.

DAMN YOU WINTER

(Anonymous)
I fell on the ice the other day when going to feed my horses and landed on my back and hit my head and elbows. My neck hurts like a bastard, to the point where I can't even tip my head back to finish my Coke. Advil, hot shower, massage, muscle relaxants, NOTHING IS HELPING.

I just want the snow to GO AWAY NOW.

Re: DAMN YOU WINTER

(Anonymous)
I live in a part of Massachusetts that hasn't seen more than three inches of snow the entire season. Seriously, it's felt like March since November.

I'll take ALL OF YOUR SNOW. I just want to go snowshoeing ;_;

It's really, really stupid, but I'm kind of afraid my girlfriend doesn't love me as much as I her. It's stupid but it's been bothering me. Argh.

This is one of those things you just have to talk to her about. That's really your ownly option if you want it taken care of.

I love my friends. They don't realise that any or all of them could have me any way they want if they say the word. Probably for the best, but it's frustrating sometimes.

Re: HEY BITCHES

I could have sworn this came up just a couple of days ago.

The Cambridge online dictionary lists it and I've seen it used in the Daily Mail (YEAH, I'M CLASSY), so I think you probably wouldn't have issues with recognition. Whether or not anyone in Sherlock would actually use it, though, is another matter.

John, I can see. Sherlock... LOL.
