100 Facebook Friends!

Wow, I never thought I would reach this point. I now have 100 Facebook friends! It's a milestone so I wanted to write about it. I don't even know some of them. But one of my friends has been actively referring me to other people, and if they seem OK, I invite them to become my friend. I figure what the hell. Maybe they'll turn out to be a good friend. I've had some that I started out not knowing at all turn out to be wonderful friends. I like to give everyone a chance, so I ask. That's just me.

Well, as part of my nightly rant, I've gotta say some people I get suggestions about that I wouldn't give the time of day to. Normally, I can take people or leave them. I don't care. I stopped caring about that a long time ago! I'm too busy nowadays anyway to worry about what others are saying or thinking about me behind my back. Besides, observe the golden rule: What others think of me is none of my business! :) That makes life happier. I've actually been practicing that, and it feels good. Just take everything in stride.

I was watching some videos last night about that site called beautifulpeople.com, and I remember back when this blog was still new, I wrote about my feelings about this website. I heard that you have to submit a picture of yourself every month to this site, and the members there decide if you are still pretty enough to stay on that site. I heard last Christmas season, they chucked about 5000 members, simply because those members put on a few pounds over the holidays and the people on the site thought they were "too fat". Those 5000 people should have known better than to join a site like that!! I went back to that site last night to see if they are still functioning. I hadn't been there since I first read that article about them on another person's blogger. Sure enough they are still there! But now, you cannot view any of the members unless you become a member yourself. And you have to be voted in to become a member. Apparently, the members are allowed to make mixed comments about you. Some will say you are ugly and some may not. I would probably be voted out unanimously!! LOL! But all my ego mumbo-jumbo aside, in reality, I ask again, who defines what beauty is? Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder. But I heard in an interview, the owner of that site actually said things like "people in the US and UK are usually too ugly to allow in the site" and "Russian people are not allowed" and then also called all overweight people "fatties" and said "fatties are not allowed". Honestly, screw him! Just the fact that he says things like that (and get this, he's from the UK himself), I wouldn't waste my time even trying to apply to become a member of his site! I think anyone moronic enough to try deserves the pelting they're going to get from the "voting comittee". Because what is beautiful to some may be ugly to others. This is the rule I live by, beauty is only in the eye of the beholder. Just because a person is fat doesn't always mean they are ugly. Look at Queen Latifah. She's overweight, but I think she is a beautiful person. Look at Marilyn Monroe, by today's standards, she would have been considered fat. But she was one of the most beautiful women that ever lived. In contrast, just because a person is thin does not mean they are attractive. I've seen plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of women with good figures, but with a face that would scare Frankenstein! One good example was Tracy, the woman I worked for when I worked at the Puyallup Fair, the rides and concession division. Bodywise she looked fairly OK, though she had no breasts. But then you get to her face, which by any standards was so ugly, it'd make a rattlesnake cringe!

Real beauty comes from within. Now I know there are people out there that are reading that last sentence and thinking "You only say that because you're ugly!" Well, no. I'm not saying that just because I am ugly. I'm saying that because through personal experience, I've seen people who only look at what a person looks like on the outside, and I've gotten to know the overall attitudes of people like that very well. Let me tell you, they are crappy people! They are people I would never want as a friend anyway, so I don't care what they think! A person should only be judged by what is on the inside. I may be ugly by anyone's standards, but it doesn't mean I am a bad person. I can be a person's very best friend if I like them a lot. I'm the kind of friend that would do anything I can for someone. I know reading my blogs makes it hard to believe, but I tend to stand by people I like unconditionally. I can never give anyone much more than friendship. Some people are more demanding in a friendship, like you have to agree with everything they say, or they only like you because you give them things. I'm not like that! The only thing I can promise anyone is that I will give them unconditional friendship. As long as they don't kill puppies, or rape children, or shit talk me or my family, I'll always be loyal. There's a fine-line in the phrase "shit-talk". It depends on if a person is being brutally honest or just being an asshole. Like that guy calling fat people "fatties". While I would agree I am fat, maybe even a "fattie", and I don't care what someone says about me, the fact is that the word "fattie" it's self is rather immature, vulgar, and is a word catering only to people of the lowest intelligence and no moral character. Call me fat all you want, heck! Even call me a "fatty"! I don't care! But if you refer to all fat people in general by the word "fatty", I feel sorry for you! Because you need to grow up!
