how_long_have_you_been_at_blather

...
sabbie is this about asserting your blatherauthority?
standing on a plinth swathed in your blatherstartingdate looking down at others saying "bow down and worship me, for i can proove i am blatheroldskool?"
tottering in with a cane and boring shitless all the younger blather generations as to how it was better in the blatherheyday when people wernt ruining blather by posting stuff?

its not how long youve been here.
its what you have to say.
disrobe yourself of these ageist pretentions and run free in the nakedness of the literary beauty that is blather.
020801
...
squint no....
i've never said anyone was ruinning blather...

i hate when people do that...
like its possible to 'waste space'

i don't know if you were talking to me or not...
i was just curious when I posed the question
mostly about people who were before me, honestly. because some people could have begun around the same time, and i was thinking they were here for years...you know?

I'm sorry...

by the way, it turns out it was like a year and one month or something, not 4.

birdmad just over two years (march 2000) 020801
...
birdmad easy sabbitha, i'm sure it's all just curiosity anyway. where's the harm? 020801
...
sabbie squnity, its not an attack, its an opinion. its my opinion and i chose to slap it down here.

birdmad - its like the gother_than_thou attitude all over again.

where do i come on the blather ladder? well, [whoever] has been here longer than me, so they deserve more respect, cos blather is more theirs than mine, but ive been here longer than [someone else] so i can feel taller and better than them.

i went to a goth nightclub the other day, back for the first time in years and sab is dressed in big pinstripe pants, ripped velvet skirt held together with safteypins, a red singlet and one of those things i never know the name of a bra-but-covers-your-belly-too-and-goes-down-and-ends-in-garters and there was this couple both completly covered in pvc and perfectly whitefaced and made up excitely talking to our theatre producer and the girl sized me up and down and decided i was beneath her highnesses gothic notice and stood in front of me, effectivly closing me out of the circle. and i nearly fell over laughing then wandered off. a few days later they came to the play and she was all over me, suddenly realising that i have a funkarsed job and im very good at it.

thats the attitude im talking about here. the im-gother-than-you-i-wear-more-pvc/ im-a-better-blather-than-you,-ive-been-here-longer.

dont tell me each and every one of you dont get a little thrill when you find out that you have been blathering longer than someone you admire.

it doesnt matter how long youve been here. everyone had to start sometime.
its what you have to say thats important.
not how long you have been saying it for.

sabbies_soapbox is now open for discussion.
020801
...
sabbie oh. easy as in 'take it easy' sabbitha not easy as in 'its easy to answer your question' sabbitha.

callcentremonkeywork makes me grumpy.

i'll back off, but only cos you have asked me too birdmad, and youve been here longer than me.
i bow to your blatherauthority :)
020801
...
Aimee Sabbie dear, I love you dearly but I think you kinda over reacted, but then again I can see your view... but I think perhaps this was started out of a curiousity to see how long everyone's been here... it's kinda interesting. 020801
...
birdmad actually, i've come to realize, a least as it relates to me that the more i blathe, the less i'm worth 020801
...
freakizh i started on july 2001. you do the math.

i wish i could blather more though.
020801
...
sabbie what does you thinking that you love me dearly have to do with whether you think i over-reacted or not?

i have many and varied soapboxes all trailing behind me like cans on a wedding car and i am happy to leap upon as many as i can as the mood takes me.

i see this particular attitude around me everywhere and it shits me and even if squint didnt start it off for that reason thats where it is for me at least.

this is not an excuse, i dont feel the need to excuse myself. this is me and i dont care if you like it. however, i am blathing from work, and i always feel more shouty at work.

silentbob since early june of 2000

and no. i don't get a thrill, not even a little one to find that someone i admire hasnt been here as long as me.

sabbie was in fact the first person to even ask "WHY" anyone would ask this question. or Accuse, rather.

also, when aimee was saying "i love you dearly but you over-reacted"

the "but" part wasn't about you over-reacting. it was about her coming out, and TELLING you you overreacted.


i mean... i honestly don't care whose been here before me and who came here after me. and there's nothing wrong with a poll about it. so... why be hostile?

sabbie = only one who was grumpy about this

and maybe i came late and you don't actually care anymore... but...

i guess there's just better things to direct energy towards and accusing people of wanting to feel superior is just... SILLY

silentbob its silly to accuse things of people if it isn't true.

if jamie had started the blathe with something like

"I bet i've been here longer"

then it wouldn't have been silly.

pobodys nerfect My first entry was on 030501, but I was here as a reader before that. I know I was here at least two weeks before birdmad's "blurring the edges" story began, and he started that on 030405(I just checked), so it was sometime in March 2003. Geez, I'm pretty chatty today, aren't I? (rhetorical!) 030510
...
drew i was one of those early blatherers, drawn in sporadically during periods of boredom or high workload. makes me think of the people who 'acted' in edison's films, you know when it was a novelty. they probably thought it was mind blowing shit, but we look back at it now more as bland experiments.

and so it goes.

realistic optimist 3 months, thought that post was under a different name. and i kind of liked sabbie's blather-than-thou preemptive strike. it had chutzpah. (am i spelling that right?) and it nipped in the bud a potential thought in the back of people's heads as they read this. but more than that, it exercised something she had been harboring about social ladders, which is, of course, the most important of all. 031008

misstree i never realized you could read blather without blathing in return. and i also liked sabbie's rant, because i believe in siezing the opportunity to rant whenever it boils up enough.
