So remember that post about Joel?
Yeah, well, apparently the excitement continues. Continue reading
I like to crochet.
I know wrist stretches but have yet to find shoulder ones.
I suspect the solution might actually be improving my posture.
A certain writer by the name of James Beamon is going down the self publishing route.
Part of this involves getting the name out there. I’ve enjoyed his stuff (and I plan to enjoy even more of it this summer), so I’m putting his name up here in the hopes of more people taking a look!
This is the first story of his I stumbled across. I quite liked it, so I want others to get a chance to enjoy it too!
Good luck, Mr. Beamon! I hope you get that story finished and I look forward to seeing it.
(I think this the first time I’ve ever done a post like this…)
So there’s actually not a whole lot to say here about Joel.
He made a post that finally, finally did it. It was about how it’s OK to punch Nazis.
I have problems with this:
Anyway, I call him out on it. He doesn’t say anything. A friend of his does and is totally okay with this punching people thing and won’t budge. Fine. Joel likes everything he says and doesn’t say a word to me.
(This of course both amuses and upsets me a bit because the last time I challenged him, he utterly failed to back his points, let somebody else do it and did the condescending thing of “Well if you can’t understand it, then maybe you aren’t meant to.”)
So I unfriend him. I’ve had enough of seeing his complete and utterly moronic bullshit on my feed (my favorite was one about how, apparently, because people like me who went to college for a degree in history, we’re brainwashed and don’t know the truth).
But here’s the best part.
He completely removed my boyfriend from all his contacts. FB, chat clients, etc. All of it by the sounds of it.
When I went to Joel’s page to unfriend him I saw some bitter posts about his ex who broke up with him. That was a few years ago, but it around this time of year. So maybe he resents me and the bf for still being together. Or maybe he had removed my bf before this happened.
Could ask a friend and find out but that feels awkward*, vain, and kinda petty.
Then again, so was slicing out my boyfriend despite not even being involved. … And I’ve never said I’m above being petty (I’m making a blog bitching about this, folks).
And I kind of can’t help but wonder if he’s said shit about me. He’s done vaguebooking/passive aggressive posts before multiple times.
TL;DR–I unfriend person for having his head so far up his ass he punishes my boyfriend for my actions.
*I asked. It was awkward.
I feel weird asking these things since it always feels so pompous, but whatever.
Anybody who reads Reality2 stuff–any of the characters who’ve come up that people are curious about?
