You're cute when you're drunk.

Is it wrong to say that? Eh, I don't care. You are.
It is not wrong, I am doomed to eternal cuteness. It's okay usually, but it sucks when you're trying to be threatening.

I've always secretly wanted to be cute. Cute girls get to wear the cute polka dot clothes and summer stuff! I envy your cuteness!

I think I can see how it could get annoying though. People tend to think I'm very innocent. This is great in some ways. You don't get guys trying to paw you very often and people are more "polite" around you. If they decide they have to flirt, they do it in a less annoying way. The downside of it is that people don't dare tell dirty jokes around you, they treat you like a kid (even if i'm 25..) and if you do something "out of character" everybody freaks out.

Do cute people get the innocence stigma automatically? I've noticed that I automatically think people with dimples are innocent because dimples are cute.

I USED TO BE CUTE! I look a bit like a drunk brawler.. Baring my teeth.. Trying to escape my restraints and climb on top the table to attack the photographer..
Yeah, innocence is a common misconception as a result of cuteness, innocence and stupidity. For some reason a lot of people seem to be surprised the first time they hear me talk about anything to do with...well anything interesting: physics, brains, history, sci-fi. One guy straight up said to me, "I wouldn't have expected someone like you to know anything about physics." What did you expect me to know about, fuckwad, reality TV and facials?

I didn't say that, but I should have.

It's like the mere act of wearing pink automatically means one is an idiot.

And you were an ADORABLE baby!

I always wanted to be tall, dark, and broody, but I lack the tall, the dark, and especially the broody. So I settled for short, grizzled and snarky.

Well, I am kinda cute, I have dimples, but nobody ever though I was innocent.

^On the other hand you look like an Italian Alan Rickman, if I recall correctly, so you win anyways.

Preconceptions in regards to ones personality and interests are also frighteningly prevalent when it comes to ones profession. I work as a sort of combined handyman/painter/carpenter and people are fucking baffled when I know things about science, mythology and culture. I mean jeez, just because someone works as something it doesn't mean that person is only that thing.


Also, if we're doing cute babies now, it's about time I dug up this one of me again:

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Iguana: I would. If the devil had dimples i would think he was just misunderstood and innocent. It's a bit annoying because it makes it very easy for bedimpled people to trick me.

Also! Yes! Baby picture! So cute!

Me and my niese. She's a bit older now. She's learned how to call for my dog. ^^

It's a Swedish thing. They're a bit weird. ;P
Is there some huge "friendly" rivalry between Norway and Sweden? I've always wondered this.

I grew up in Minnesota. The whole north-central part of the state is dominated by Norwegian and Swedish immigrants. And they were always hugely competitive. The rivalries between the schools during the hockey tournament are legendary.

And a lot of the towns/cites in that area have either a Norwegian or Swedish flag on their "Welcome to" signs--the only place I've ever seen anything like that.

The irony, of course, that we Finns just lump them all together and call them "dumb Swedes." (It's the lutefisk.) And tell Sven, Ole, and Lena jokes.

Yes. You should have.

Sometimes I wonder if people realize they're being total douchebags when they say crap like that. I suppose that since the [popular] media continues to promote this myth that intelligence and beauty are somehow contradictory, that it's okay to think the same.

Funny thing though, like all the women here on the TBBS, every woman I know who is really intelligent, and interesting as you say, is also really beautiful. Given the sheer number, I can't be the only person who knows others (because the stereotype does extend to men too) like this. So why haven't more people figured out the two are mutually exclusive?

It's like the mere act of wearing pink automatically means one is an idiot.
That one might be true. I wear pink often.

That brings up another point about silly preconceptions and assumptions. I like to wear pink and purple. So, of course, people often just assume I'm gay. Because the color of a person's cloths says so much about him...

That's probably a good thing. The, tall, dark, broody thing is so overdone. Besides, snarky is awesome.

Hah! Fantastic! The feud caries on!
And yes. There is rivalry. Mostly friendly. I would advise you to never call a Norwegian a Swede to their face though. You might get punched. Not sure if it works that way the other way round. Some british guy visiting my friend in Norway asumed I was Swedish once. It made no sense. I'm not blond, don't use botox and I was not half naked.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I spent most of yesterday at Nationals Park with about 500 other handbell ringers. We rang the national anthem before the game! Here's the video first:

I'm somewhere under the GEICO sign.

Some photos:
Just a screen grab of the performance from youtube:


Rehearsal:






They made a slight error in the T-Shirt...it's the Miami Marlins now.


It was a good time, and the Nats won!

not technically Menaul I think, there's this little branch road that bridges Menaul and Eubank, but yes, the one on Menaul
