(I'm pretty sure that I've stolen the subject of this entry from somewhere, but I cannot be bothered to research it. Also, I'm not picking on anyone in particular here.)
I just don't see what the big deal is with all this Unconscious Mutterings crap that keeps cropping up everywhere.
That's right. I said it. I don't get it.
Is this supposed to be fun or something? Are you supposed to do it and learn something about yourself? Maybe you're supposed to post them in your 'blog and people will just understand you better.
I don't get the purpose of these things.
For those of you that don't know what I'm talking about, first of all you're lucky. Second of all, what you're supposed to do is this word-association thingy like they've had every shrink that's ever been on television or in the movies in history do at one point or another. For example, here's this week's list from the site. I'll read each word and then write the first thing that pops into my head:
- Crave:: Beer
- Whole package:: Cereal
- Roommates:: Lesbians
- 5:30:: 4:57
- Lesbian:: Roommates
- Poignant:: Sad
- Hurtful:: Mean
- You and I:: Unlikely
- Grateful:: Whatever
- Giggle:: Tickle
I don't get it.
There's one journal that I read frequently- the guy seems to have become obsessed with these things. All that I've learned from reading them is that he likes to do boring things and post them on the Internet.
Hell, I already knew that. We all do that or we wouldn't be here.
I dunno. Maybe I'm too stupid to understand the appeal of these things. Maybe I'm too smart. Maybe it's all just some big joke where the inventor of the things is getting a big kick out of the fact that people are actually doing this shit!
Hey! I've got an idea! I'll start a new sensation. I'll write a word and you send me money. The amount that you send will reveal hidden things about your personality. I promise! Right off the bat, for example, it will reveal two things:
- Whether or not you have too much money laying around.
- Whether or not you like to read random words.
The first word I'll use is *drumroll* perambulate.
Feel free to PM me for where to send your money.
