Would You Be Friends With You?

I have a subscription to Glamour magazine. I collected enough orange juice caps to parlay into a years subscription to Glamour. It's pretty funny. This article I found interesting though. Would You Be Friends With You?

It has some questions. You can share your answers with me if you're so inclined!
Would you pick up your own call?
I would because I would be thinking "Why didn't she (me) text? It must be very important. It's probably about vaginas."

Would you meet you for lunch in the rain?
Now why wouldn't you meet someone for lunch in the rain? If I had lunch plans with someone I am making them rain or shine. Do people really skip out on lunch because of precipitation? I would not be friends with such a person. They seem like an asshole.

Would you shop for a swimsuit with you?
I would. I am a bad shopper for myself, but I think I'm okay as a shopping guest. I can't even remember going shopping with anyone. I just don't think that's something my friends do. Go try on clothes together? Maybe I'm the bad friend that no one wants to shop with and that's why I don't think people do this. That's a definite possibility.

Would you be happy if you got a new boyfriend?
"You've heard of fair-weather friends, but bad-weather friends are just as common—women who want to hang out with you only when the chips are down. I know that in my own friendships, I worry the most about sharing good news, not bad news. What if a friend is jealous?"

Yeah. I know this type of person. Someone once told me, upon me getting a job, "I will never get one. I don't think I'm great like you think you're great, Kasey." No congratulations. Just tears. I will never forget that. I never went around feeling so great. I may talk a lot of shit, but I don't find myself to be the greatest. I just don't see the point of letting the world see my insecurities all the time. I don't need to talk myself down, that's for my head to do, not my mouth.

I am not this type of person. If you're happy and good stuff is going on for you, I'm ecstatic. Let's be happy about it together! According to this article this could possibly make me annoying "...but hopefully not so happy that no one wants to be friends with you."

So, yeah. I guess I would be friends with me. I'd probably even date me. My god. I do think I'm great!

I thought I loved you dearly Reverend Awesome, now I know I lol lol...:) My feelings exactly about everything stated in this blog. I don't have any girlfriends, except for those on fb. I am not complaining, I have absolutely nothing in common with any woman around here. They think I am weird, and I think they are lol lol...:) When ever I talk to anyone of them for five minutes (which is way too long for me) I walk away and go ??????????? lol lol lol...:) They outwardly say to me, "We think your weird Maureen", my reply, "Ditto" and I laugh walking away! :)

The problem with me meeting me is that we are both shy and awkward and have prickly tempers, so we probably wouldn't give ourselves a chance to get to know each other! I like teh weirdos and wackos like Maureen and kasey, and the warm hearted friendly types like Stevo :)

I always wondered what it would be like if my childhood self met me now. Would I be pleased with how I turned out? Would I be disappointed? Would old me know how to talk to young me so I got past being shy and opened up? Would I think I was fun?

what about sex?

Reverend Awesome said...

In the words of Rilo Kiley, I'd fuck me.

I wonder what tiny me would think of grown up me too. I think she would be shocked that I talked to much and wasn't afraid anymore. I don't think I could talk tiny me out of being shy. I wonder if I'd be different now if I wasn't shy as a kid.

We're wonderful weirdos, Maureen.

I would love me! After all I am my own best friend. Me and myself have a blast together and well frankly we think we are just swell. ;)

Reverend Awesome said...

You are swell, Leigh! You'd be a fool not to be your friend.

What great answers!! And, I will answer your question about if you're not invited to go shopping. Not the case. I hate shopping for clothes. In fact, I only go when I have to go. I go alone because I don't care that much how something looks on me. If I feel normal in it, it's a keeper. If I ever did need a shopping assistant, I wouldn't hesitate to ask you. You're quick, honest, and positive. You'd be a perfect bring along.
