Or, if you’d prefer, why it is I’ve developed an alergy to drama. Someone who used to be on this here friends page decided earlier this evening she’d like to relapse into her teenage years, and go on a wining spree over how she traumatized herself over writing an entry for LJ Idol, and how clearly the majority of the friends on her list are uncaring and have no loyalty to her whatsoever because she hardly received any votes for it over the weekend and is now on the verge of being eliminated. Now, firstly and foremost, if it’s going to be traumatizing/upsetting/distressing to you, why in the hell would you write it for, of all things, a silly internet competition on a blogging site that really only comes down to how large your friends list is and how many of them you can beg for votes? And secondly, why in the hell would you go on a ranting rampage over said friends list when they heaven forbid don’t actually vote for your entry? Well, she did so. And, when I posted this comment explaining my position on this year’s LJ Idol, I thought that would be the end of it.
Don’t feel bad. I haven’t been following idol this year, so no one’s got my vote. And since only two of Idol’s contestants right at the moment are on my flist, I figured it wasn’t entirely fair.
Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I thought that was a fairly empartial response, not really slanted in any particular direction save to pretty much say I haven’t been voting in LJ Idol all year and didn’t plan to start now. Apparently, she decided she didn’t see it that way.
Sorry to say that doesn’t make me feel any better. What that says to me is that you don’t care about something that is important to me. Don’t care to read my entries or vote for them. So no, it doesn’t make me feel any better.
So now, this person who has never and probably won’t ever be voting/participating in LJ Idol is expected to vote for this girl’s entry because… why, exactly? It’s what caring people do? Well, if my refusal to join in something I don’t see the point in means I’m among the uncaring and cold hearted masses, well then I guess that’d be who I am. Of course, it’s probably slightly more likely she could use to get over herself like nobody’s business. And, shortly after reading her comment in response to me, I get the LJ email saying in conclusion of her bout of immaturity, she has gone on to remove me from her friends list. I probably should have a response to that, but apparently, I don’t care. dear drama chicky, please to be getting over yourself. Kthxbye.
