Reading zen's journal

zen *** mindlessly drivels...

What's going on?

Fighting over modem time.
That's the only thing happening. Actually, I'll do a quick check-in for mom. She's depressed, and doesn't want to talk to me, or anyone. It's like sh doesn't want to come out of her shell. She isn't working, and has no money for presents for the grrandkids. More to the point, she got in a argument with my younger sister, so now they're not speaking. And H-, my sister, is still mad that mom didn't at least call for her son's birthday.

All of that mess I wholly place on the back of H-'s boyfriend, Michael. He's a punk, and just a plain fucker. I'd gladly throw him down her stairs and not even think about it.

So I got into a slight argument with her the other day over using the car. She said I don't let her use the car except for 5 minutes then she has to bring it back. The thing is that I told her I need to get the video back by 10pm. Here's the thing: she leaves to go to church early, to be there by 6 pm. I say I need to return the video before 10 pm. That's 4 hours!! And if the stupid video didn't need to be back, I wouldn't care how long she was out toolin around. In fact, I'm GLAD when she leaves the house. Frankly, she has no life. Church is the only life she has, now that she's not talking to my sister. And in addition, now she' cast this pall over the house, like a wet dishrag.

I'd tell her that I love her, but she doesn't want to talk; certainly not me. So then she sits in front of her computer, on line (which means I can't do the auction stuff when I need to), playing slingo, or poppit, or pong, or pogo, or whatever the hell it is. For 9 hours straight! But when I need to use the phone line, it's like getting a government grant. At one point she was complaining that she doesn't get enough modem time, even though she knows I'm selling on it. I'm like, "but this is my job." A friend of schweeties used a phrase. Originally I didn't like it. But the more I hear it, the more fitting it is. He said "it's just pathetic." He's right. It's just pathetic.

Once Fred Neitszche declared God is Dead, f*ck became the most important word in the English languag

Re: Sidenote

I assume "schweetie" is actually "sweetie". not entirely sure how you would pronounce this, but i think making the"w" more a "v" sound helps to actually get the word out of you mouth.

Re: Sidenote

I think that, too - but why does she use it, anyway? It aint an english word, is it?

Re: Sidenote

Just a pet name i think, i greet alot of my freinds with "sweetie" or "beautiful"...and quite often i pronounce the "s" as "sh"...i dont know why though.

thats propably caused by me not reading other persons NAO profiles - another thing might be that there's a feeling that zen is writing kind of woman-like, dont know ..

null has a suggestion...

Probably just because it sounds schweet. :-)

I'm not exactly sure why...but somehow that humour made me want to cringe. ;)

(shwa-eat-ees)

sch is shwa sounding. I have not seen the movie so I don't know in what context he is saying this word. I couldn't tell you what it means. Maybe he is talking about some girls or something. Thats all I can think of.

Ummm, from what I've read, i think Zen is talking about his partner (Rich i think the name is??). as i said earlier, i think its just a pet name.
