Anonymous asked: In what ways would you say you are uptight?
Uuuuhhmmmmmmm…. I am pretty uptight about bodily functions. Not as bad as I used to be, since I had an instestinal emergency/surgery a few years back (prior to that I would steadfastly argue with people that I did not/had not/would not ever defecate :p), but I am still not somebody that wants anyone else to know that I am going/just went, which is sort of an issue when you live in a house with 6 other people :p I am totally grossed out in a tmi way when other people tell me they’ve got diarrhea, or just farted, or whatever, and get kind of snotty about it (to myself), like wondering how they’re not embarrassed. But I don’t actually tell them about it, because I really think the whole concept of “tmi” is bs and that we should all be honest about what we feel like talking about…and I find nothing offensive or private about burping or periods or popping zits or a million other things most people disagree with, so. Whatevs.
I suppose I am also uptight about the whole concept of smoking anything. I still have leftover negative associations from childhood, I guess, but I’ve never smoked anything and am still pretty grossed out when other people do, even if it’s harmless (hooka), legal (cigarettes), or whatever. I don’t even stigmatize pot anymore but I’d wanna eat it if I were doing it. *shrug*
Oh, and I hate almost all condiments and salad dressings. Like, LOATHE. I won’t eat any kind of “x salad” where x+mayo=salad, and I am not interested in anybody’s homemade “real,” “superior,” recipes either. I eat sandwiches and salads all the time but moisture comes from like, tomatoes and pickles or olives or whatever.
For the most part I am really, REALLY not uptight, and I think a person could probably be around me a lot without even knowing the things I’ve listed here.
