irony

. that a post i write about having nothing to say gets more comments than any other except spark (which was clearly the best thing i've written since i got readers...)

. that some guy stares at me for 20 minutes and circles me like i'm prey and then asks me if i know him and says 'i was wondering because you were looking at me.'
- um what?

. that if i like someone they will like someone else who will probably like me.

. that if someone likes me i'm probably digging on that guy 'over there'.

. that my kitten prefers the house of my neighbour to my own.

. that the better my body gets the lower my body confidence gets (well sort of... that one is hard to explain)

. that i can see the truth in others lives but not my own.

. that the hottest girl at the first aid recert was also the most competent one there.

. that climber guy wants to go climbing tomorrow.

. that i LOVE my new tires and my car loves the new shoes.

. that finding a fuck is easy but finding a date is hard.

. that i SENT a 5.10- on only the second try at it and i climbed it the first time with minor falling. (need new shoes!)
- okay that isn't irony...

irony is:

. that hubris was climbing on 5.9s and I was climbing on 5.10-s ... that's fucking weird.

. that i caught hot climber guy watching me.

. that i caught him because i had just FALLEN off the fucking wall.

. that i don't know how to let a guy know i'm interested without scaring him away... and that i can't tell the difference between shy and indifferent.

. that my back is so sore i can hardly take a deep breath and i still want to climb tomorrow.
- i won't.. monday maybe.

. that i dreaded the first aid recert so much and i had a really good time.

. that my partner for the day (yes, the hottest girl there) has a favourite vital.
and
. that i have a favourite first aid supply.

. that i am lost and yet lead.

. that my blog gets more comments when i'm not around than when i am.

. that all of my local friends are in relationships of some sort.
- except one... and it won't be long for him.

. that i can't tell the difference between 'putting it out there' and implying i'm something i'm not.

. that i used to paint on my jeans and now ones that are snug feel funny and too tight.

. that i enjoy tv so much more now that i watch it so much less.

. that this list has been really fun to make.

. that just when i'm ready to pass out i'm running out of irony.

. that i meant to talk about hockey tonight.
sundin scored!
lindros, that bastard, is fucking hot.
i'm glad andreychuck is still playing.

.
*snerk*

. that sometimes it's more fun to have a crush to think about than it is to be heart whole and fancy free.

. that that sort of sucks.

. that i like difficult people and yet i want life to be easy.

. that i'm still adding to this list and i have to teach in the morning! THREE times.
- and go to a kid's birthday party.
- and have dinner, maybe, with my friend who needs a name other than 'hot doctor' because a) that's too descriptive considering other things i've said and b) he's so much more than just that in my life.

. that i'm going to bed just when this list is getting interesting.

. that i had fun at my recert.
- i know, i can't get over it either!

that was a fun, enjoyable and rather insightful list. Poignant too! (mostly just cuz I wanted to use the word "poignant.")

I have a hard time writing like that — I always want to get on a roll and expand on something, as noticed by by 10-9-8 list LOL

also, sounds like a much more productive day than I had ... and I had so many good PLANS for getting things accomplished, only to give almost all of them up for sleep. Lazy bastard that I am.

Please send a bit of your 'insightfulness' down my way, please!
Btw, ADORABLE baby pic, you were comtemplative even then..!

dz: i had a really good time writing that and i didn't know it was coming out until it was a third done :)

but yeah, i want to expand on a lot of that but i don't think it needs it....

um yeah, it was my day off... trust me, sleep was what i WANTED!

gem: there's only one way i know to get insight... read thousands of books and observe humans for years... :)

hee you lie... that face is cranky not contemplative! *grin*

It's like rain on your wedding day... It's a free ride when you already paid... It's good advice that you just didn't take.

And who woulda thought? It figures.

Sorry, I had to let that slip. Interesting Ironies and uh, comments from you lady. I want to hear more about hot climber guy. Not because he's hot, but because he pays attention to ya.

good job on the 5.10! Loveums.

ooh ... I hate that song ... why is rain on the wedding day ironic? why is a free ride that you paid for ironic? That's not irony ... that's just weird circumstances!!

irony is when it rains on weatherman's wedding (when he predicted clear skies)

irony is when you a taxi cab driver has to pay for a ride ... or a tow truck has to be toed.

silly Alanis Morissette ....

okay quoting alanis at a canadian... there has to be a rule about that somewhere doesn't there?

i think he pays attention to a lot of people... least that's the way to bet at the moment.

the thing with a climbing gym is that you don't get to serially date everyone there... over the course of a membership you date one, maybe two, MAX three people out of the entire membership...

with that in mind? no rush :)

yeah i'm all proud!

Thank you for an acurate display of irony. Now go tell Alanis that a 'black fly in your chardonnay' is not irony just shi**y bad luck!

Leave Alanis out of this. :)

I sort of considered it ironic when I went to San Francisco to work for 3 months and while I'm there I meet someone who offers to show me around - and she wa from Virginia Beach, too. I'm 3k away from home and I meet someone who some people I did. Odd.

Rain on your wedding day? Shit happens. Fly in your chardonay? Good, you should be drinking chianti anyway. :) Meet someone hot then meet their hot spouse? Look at the left hand. *shrug*

Enjoy Sunday, Sass, good on you for pulling that 5.10.

well i sort of like alanis but i did always wonder where she found teh definition of ironic :)

okay cast that is funny as hell... i recently met a guy who went to school with people i've known for years... just random funnyness.

mmmm chardonnay rocks :P

not all marrieds wear rings is the thing... and not all rings mean marriage...

and yeah dude, me adn that 5.10- are like *this* now :)

no ring for me, i have a nice matching set of calluses on my hands, the thing went off a while ago.

i need a 'rita but my blender took a crap. :(

Irony is what happens discussing that song.

I feel you on the list. I want to steal it and do my own version but I just realized that I'm all irony all the time so it's kinda not so much fun. I don't know what you else you might want to call hot doctor, but I like the name.

I'm glad you like the pic, it's really just for the blog name. Eventually I can get a pic of myself up there, eventually I'll have a pretty blog and perhaps a hot doctor of my own, and have the ability to climb a 5.10. I can dream.

Happy Sunday.

Blogger sassinak said...

cast: my point exactly

so have a lime one on the rocks

amber: *lmao* you nailed it! irony *is* what happens when discussing that song!

so steal it... i think any idea like this is just a variation on another list (for example i did one called happy thoughts once)... so turn it into something that works for you :)

i like the name hot doctor too but it a) totally identifies him if you know me and b) makes him a the instead of a he.

hey my blog is pretty cause of blogrolling and bloggerhacks... thas it... i just follow directions :) [and as for the 5.10- try climbing... you may be surprised at hoe enjoyable it is... ]

mmm happy sunday to you and anyone else stopping by!
