Conversation Between Baloth and Starsprite

September 8th, 2012 03:20 PMStarspriteWait, and what class was this for again? Please tell me it was a speech class, because otherwise that makes no sense whatsoever.
Okay, so I was referring more to the less processed meat, like free range. That's a little more hard to come by, but it's generally less cruel too. Not my cup of tea, but it probably wouldn't kill your stomach. As for people outside of here, I'm not all too certain that they would think I'm crazy, since the majority of people don't seem to think that not eating meat is a sign of pure evil or whatever.
I get strep throat mostly. Or an abundance of random infections. Oh, and sorry for ditching you and the rest of PC for like three days straight. I was suuuuper busy.
September 6th, 2012 05:59 PMBalothBasically, all the project was for us to say "This band, I like dem." And that's pretty much all I did.
Chock full of chemicals and grease and stuff--yeah, the stuff kills my stomach. Hell, how many REGULAR people in a non farming community think you're crazy for not eating meat. --Yeah, I know. I like helping strangers too
Uh oh! I'm tired too, but not that tired, and I don't get sick this time of year (I don't *NOT* get sick this time of year, either. You know what I mean.) How do you get sick, exactly? Cold, flu? All of the above, more? As I already said, a couple sentences ago, I'm tired. Aaaand that's about it!
September 6th, 2012 04:45 PMStarspriteHuh. That just comes as such a surprise to me. I don't guess it should, all things considered, but you'd think that there would at least be someone. Ah well. So did you enlighten them? Or at least try to? Actually, what did you say in your project?
Huh. Makes you feel bad physically? That's kind of odd, isn't it? Meat does have its benefit in the way of protein, you know. Then again, the not so picky among us tend to be able to replace it rather easily. You wouldn't imagine how many people in a small, farming community would treat you like you're crazy for not eating meat. Right, but social work usually doesn't entail helping out friends. That sounds very kind of you to want to help your friends, but unless your friends are paying you to help out then it isn't really social work. And that too sounds like a wonderful idea to me, to be helping animals. I think, of all the proposed jobs, that one is by far the most impressive.
Well, I'm not doing too bad right now, but I am beyond exhausted. Plus it's about the time of year where I always get sick. Oh well. What about you?
September 6th, 2012 03:00 PMBalothNope, not a single one. That class--that entire school, really--was full of closed-minded dolts. I was, and still am, the awkward kid in the back
Gah. Meat is the enemy. My ancestors, on both sides of my enemy, have eaten meat of moose and deer and cow for generations. ...................Buuuuuuuuuuut it makes me feel like crap, frankly. Physically. --Yeah, maybe. I do get a nice sense of accomplishment and such, helping out FRIENDS with THEIR issues, small or large. ...Though really, I'd rather be working with/for (the advancement of) animals. Or perhaps cooped up in a nice library.
How's it goin'?
September 6th, 2012 12:42 PMStarspriteWait, so there wasn't a single kid who shared your appreciation for Rammstein? Like, not even the awkward kid in the back? There's always an awkward kid in the back. I kind of imagined the teacher would be the one to freak out though, not everyone as a whole.
Well then it probably won't be hard for you if you feel that way. Some people try to go into vegetarianism for a good reason, but then they treat vegetables like the enemy. Oh, social work? You know, it seems like those kinds of jobs would get old really fast, especially the more irritated people you have to work with. Maybe your voice would be soothing enough, but mad people are no fun. So I take my suggestion back. We should all just do rocket science. That job is the best job.
Well, I'd say it's more chaotic than neat, but it's the thought that counts.
September 5th, 2012 06:58 PMBalothYes, I like de Jazz. --Oh, everyone. There were stares and raised eyebrows that implied "oh man, he listens to that music, he must be some kind of horrifying goth emo murderer psycho type". Jaws hit the floor. My teacher even seemed a little phased.
I am...Picky, and I'm not picky. I dunno. There are tons of ways you can prepare veggies to make em delicious. --Maybe. Social work, stuff like that, I've considered, yeah. Oh, some people love my voice. "Read for us, Brandon!" My voice seems to like vary between monotonous depressed sounding, smooth calm and relaxing, confident and loud...Or effeminate. Woo, rocket scientist! Yeah, forget talking to people! Being social is overrated (For the most part, really, it is)
September 5th, 2012 06:12 PMStarspriteOkay. On that point we most definitely agree. Because pizza is clearly a starch All of it? My oh my aren't you quite the cultured one? Or maybe you're just the one who likes jazz. I don't guess that's significant of how 'cultured' you are. I could repeat the cultured thing for your use of Rammstein, but that would just be beating a dead horse. So who was it that thought that you killed small animals then? The teachers or your classmates? Or both? (But what about the mystical internet police? and Big Brother)
Ooh, I definitely recommend vegetarianism to you, but I'm a little biased. Hopefully you have a much less picky diet than me though. Picky and vegetarian is a recipe for disaster. Hm...not doctor material? Maybe you should go into therapy. Can you talk in a calm, therapeutic voice? People that do that are kind of frightening to me, but it helps for some people, I understand. Pssh. That's why I'm going to be a rocket scientist. You don't have to talk to people in that vocation. xD
In a way, I guess. Geographically and culturally it's a bit less southern than say, Alabama or Mississippi. But yeah, it's got all the cons and some of the pros of a southern state.
EDIT: Oh, and I offered for my character to interact with yours. Not sure if you were okay with that though, so I'm waiting on your input.
September 5th, 2012 05:48 PMBalothMeh. Point being; the whole pizza=vegetable thing is idiotic. --ALL jazz. All of it. --Oh, no. We had to like do a presentation about a band we like. I terrified everybody with Rammstein. Like, they probably thought I kill small animals and worship the devil or something. (I could probably c-block the police with my random knowledge of the law, if they kicked in my door as I was downloading music. --WHICH IS SUPER UNLIKELY 99% of police activity in that department is cracking down on people who SELL other peoples music. Like if I was selling bootleg CDs.)
...Yeah, it kind of does. --Yes it does! --No I'm not! I'm trying to become one, actually. Both for moral and health reasons. Eating less meat, more veggies and fruits. My shirts seem looser than normal. --Cool! -I don't have the head for science. I'm not a numbers guy. But I like speeches too. I'm a FEELER, I feel peoples thoughts and emotions and I can nourish and inspire. I could be a motivational speaker. Or a doctor. -But I'm bad with numbers. And with veins. Yeah, not good doctor material. But anyway.
Wow, that's pretty...Southern!
September 5th, 2012 02:35 PMStarspriteAlright, well I was trying to argue more for the lack of consistency, rather than what type of plant it is. Besides, how is cheese a vegetable? It isn't, that's how. Ooh, jazz? What style of jazz, might I ask? For some reason, some types of jazz and blues appeal to me where some types do not. I have to say, I enjoy the more upbeat melodies in this case. Eighth Grade project? I'm assuming this has to do with jazz and you killing small animals? xD (I agree with you about piracy. I still try not to do it too much, however. Maybe I'm paranoid.)
Well it already sounds nice in comparison to here. Crime may be small and the environment may be in good shape, but the weather and the intolerance are a real deal-killer. Not that the weather's that bad, but most of the year is one temperature extreme or another. That sounds like an awesome line of work, by the way. Question. You seem to care about animals a lot; are you a vegetarian? I am, and it's mostly for moral reasons. I'm not really decided on a job, though. I'll probably go into some sort of scientific field since it's what I'm best at, but I'd love to make some sort of difference in the world. Strange as it may seem, I love giving speeches.
All according to plan... No, really, I live in the US, or, more specifically, the state of Tennessee.
September 5th, 2012 02:01 PMBaloth--But in cooking/culinary uses, tis considered a vegetable. Tomato paste=vegetable, I guess. I like all da music. Especially classical and jazz and some genres of music/bands that have the unfortunate effect of making people think that killing small animals is a hobby of mine. Grade 8 music project thing...Lots of people looked SCARED. "WHAT IS THIS MUSIC?! THIS IS SCARY!" (Piracy...Meh. People should PURCHASE things from lowly artists, just starting out, but I couldn't care less about "stealing" from multi-million dollar artists. I don't think Katy Perry is going to suffer any if I "illegally" download a copy of Hot 'n' Cold, or something. Justin Bieber [ugh] isn't going to go hungry tomorrow if you burn a few of his songs onto a CD.)
I do and I don't. It's an alright place, there aren't a billion murders every day or anything, the weather is decent...There isn't an insane level of intolerance or racism or anything. --Yeah, I'm sure you'd have your reasons. You needn't go into detail, I've lived more than long enough to imagine things that would make people want to leave home. ----What kind of job...I'm not 100% sure, but I believe I want to work with, or for the betterment of (better care, rights, whatever) animals. I understand animals so much better than I do people, I get along with them so much better, they are so much simpler and pleasant and awesome and such...And I don't know of any decent opportunities to do anything like that here. I'd be fine with like a desk job or something. But even that...Would probably not be around here. YOU?
And let's just let it all hang out, here. Not like you're going to come over and murder me or something. I'm from Canada! Et vous?
September 5th, 2012 12:56 PMStarspriteSo wait, if tomatoes are a fruit then wouldn't pizza "technically" also be a fruit? I mean, it shouldn't be considered an anything, but if people are going to waste their time on such a silly thing then they should at least be consistent.
Oh, so what kind of music do you like? Or is there a particular way to describe it all? (Piracy, to me, is kind of a bad habit, but I never did take it as seriously as I should have. I try not to do it outright, at least, but so descriptions of piracy are just pushing it.)
I'm going to make a guess that you like the place where you live then. See, I actually want to leave home for both reasons. Not only do I need to to get a good job, but I also want to leave for personal reasons. Speaking of which, what kind of job do you want that would require you to branch out? Do you have any clue at this point?
That's good~ Glad you're still among the living.
September 5th, 2012 12:45 PMBalothSo do I. --Vegetables and fruits...God. The world is decaying, and the US Congress pushes papers to declare that PIZZA is a VEGETABLE because it has a couple spoonfuls of tomato paste. --Well, and I've heard debate and confusion over tomatoes being a fruit or veggie too many times in my classrooms. ...Botanically, it is a fruit. In cooking, it's considered a vegetable. Short answer; fruit.
...Yeah, the guy who denounced Pluto as a planet is a jerk. --Both. I rant about how some artists suck and others rock, all of the "piracy" stuff...
Ahhh. That sucks! --I don't know. I don't have a burning desire to leave the nest or anything. If I have to leave to get a good job, sure. Wouldn't leave *for the sake of leaving*.
September 5th, 2012 12:28 PMStarspriteHuh. Me too. I have a lot of very strong opinions about those types of things with the exception of the vegetable and fruit argument. But I will defend Pluto's planethood to the death Oh, and how do you rant about music, just out of curiosity? Like, in a positive way or a negative way (like bad artists or issues like piracy) I mean.
Well, it's a small town with terrible job opportunities and an abundance of very closed minded people. Southern small towns tend to be that way, and that's why I want out. So do you intend to leave town, even if you don't have to? I know that some people will move just to get away from their parents and the like.
I certainly hope so. I guess I'll take your reply or lack thereof as an indicator of whether or not you've had a horrible, school-related incident. Though that does sound incredibly pessimistic.
September 5th, 2012 04:44 AMBalothSocial injustice, war, poverty, politics, capitalism, Pokemon, music, what constitutes a vegetable and what constitutes a fruit, ...Lots of things.
Both. Why so eager to leave town, if you don't mind my asking? --Me, I wouldn't have to leave town for college (unless I wanted to study something uber specialized), but I might very well have to leave town for work.
Well, I wasn't killed in my sleep, so unless I'm going to be run down on the way to school, everything should be fine.
September 4th, 2012 07:27 PMStarspriteWhoops. I misread that. Still, if my ranting could make things explode I would probably go into public speaking just out of spite. Like, imagine giving an all-important political speech with random explosions in the foreground. Actually, that's kind of terrifying to think about, so nevermind. So what kinds of things do you like to rant about/cause to explode, anyways, if you don't mind me asking.
Actually, I can sympathize with that. Well, to a degree. College is just a little farther off for me. Are you excited of it, or nervous maybe? Both? I want college because I want to get out of the town where I live, mostly.
Well it's smart of you to think ahead like that, definitely. People do crazy, unexpected things. It's just a good thing that you're almost sure nothing is likely to happen.
