i just found her tumblr, it’s the source for that post. honestly some of the other content in there left me feeling a little disappointed. the original post is still funny, but now i also get the feeling that she’s sheltered and assumes her life experience is the average experience? idek i’m just…. eeeh
The Homestuck Fandom is literally the worst fandom and has absolutely no redeeming qualities.
If you think otherwise that just means that you are a part of the Homestuck fandom and therefore your opinion doesn’t matter because you are, in fact, shit. Just like your fandom.
been thinking about strideer mcgametroll lately
my new work computer runs windows 8, and now i’m dealing with this unfortunate thing here:
It’s basically telling me to swipe from the left, starting from outside the display. Except for the fact that, you know, this is a desktop, with a display that doesn’t give a shit about fingers. How do I make it so this stops showing up, or, if it must show up, that it shows tips relevant to desktops rather than tablets?
Something like that. My problem is that when I’m overloaded, sometimes I function like people who can hold conversations in their sleep. I can carry on conversations, the things I say sound like they’re related to the things other people say, and a minute later I have no idea what happened. Like, I can be surprised when a waitress brings food because I don’t realize I ordered any.
And sometimes I’ll just get a sea of words and they’re all perfectly valid words but there’s no sentences.
And one time, that happened during a conference call, and I was about to mention it in IRC (since I can still usually read/write fine), when one of the other participants said, in IRC, “(guy’s name) is being a dingbat again”. And I realized. I wasn’t having trouble processing speech. I was listening to a middle manager use buzzwords incorrectly. I was failing to parse sentences because none of the words were being used coherently enough for me to extract meaning from them.
Like, to put it in a context that’ll be more familiar to the fandom audiences… Imagine that you’re having a conversation about Homestuck, and then someone starts talking:
"Well, the question is whether Hussie’s lusus even has the update to flash an animation with a pesterlog of the appropriate chat color. Was the chapter even a typing quirk? John is a troll. In any event, alchemizing the strife specibus is a kind of fetch modus in fanfic, because those characters are AUs apart and quadrants didn’t even have build grist until after the gigapause."
Basically, it was like that, only it was to do with computer stuff. And seriously, it was exactly like “what the hell just happened to my speech processing!?!?”
haha that word salad example is what normal speech sounds like to me when i lose processing
also it gets louder and louder until i feel like they’re shouting directly into my ear, even if their volume hadn’t changed, because my processing has already redlined. every input past max capacity is like a firehose of screaming bees shoved up my nose.
screaming, strobing bees that taste like pine sol.
