I have said it before and I am now saying it again and I bloody well mean it this time: I AM NOT GOING BACK TO HELPLINE EVER AGAIN. I don't care how the other Listeners try to guilt me, it is not worth it. I don't care about trying to help people. Really.
Okay, done with the angst 'n woe now.
In a totally unrelated topic, is it okay for me, an admitted American (*sigh*), to use British slang? Like, in the above paragraph 'o doom, I used "bloody." I have, on occasion, even used it IRL. Am I being a total poser to use it? I don't think I use it because it is "cool" (*rolls eyes at trendy Britphiles*), I use it because it's really appropriate to my mood sometimes. So, I want the honest opinion of people on my Friends list, Americans and non-Americans alike -- especially the Brits out there. Please? I mean, if you, a British person, heard me, an American, using British slang, would you, like, totally dismiss me as a complete wannabe?
I worry about these things. Also, I have been looking at my Slang Dictionary for the past hour instead of sleeping. There are some really cool words in there that I would like to include in my vocabulary.
Last thought: This icon is particularly appropriate because earlier today (okay, well, yesterday, now), I found a fairly sizeable repository of Band of Brothers slash, something which I had come to believe, after an extensive search, was nonexistent. Coolness.
