PromoGuy’s Monday Mission 2.22

1. Who or where do you go to when you need help for web-related problems?
It depends on the type of the problem really… though I usually just go to google and do a search instead of asking someone… I’m not really good at contacting people and ask for their help for something… It’s more like if I happen to be chatting to someone and a problem comes up I ask that person for help and either she or he can help or they can’t….

2. There is a big mess of gossip going on in Blogland due to revelations about a very popular Blogger. I got very caught up in reading all the links to links about it until I stopped myself realizing it was none of my buisiness. Do you ever get caught up in gossip, either speading it or listening to it? How does it make you feel? Or have you ever been the subject of gossip?
I’m usually the last one to find out about any gossip that is going around… I’ve been a subject of gossip myself offline…about 11 or 10 years ago…and everybody in the community had heard about it before I did… also about 5 years ago I met someone who actually thought I had died a few years before…

I’ve never understood the “fun” of gossip and how people seem to get caught up in it… and how people can make up stories about someone which in most cases they’ve never met… I hear gossip about someone famous… like someone is having a drug problem or someone kissing some one else…this one is having an affair… or what else… famous or not what on earth is it to us??!!
People may remember the recent writings about my site… where it is said to have “a couple of potential inconsistencies” and in other sites I’ve been described as “another Kaycee”… yes that hurt me deeply and it almost made me stop blogging.. But you know what? Gossip will always be there no matter what… There are people out there that feed on it… and everybody wants to be the first in line to spread the “news” and don’t ever consider to come forward and just ask… Well if they would…would they have a story to tell??
Sunna has this site in her reads… a pretty normal journal to me… a person who happens to be someone that many people know and therefore someone whos name is often caught in the gossip world… Make sure you read “For the Record“… Especially the part about their children… It might make you think.

3. In a relationship, when your other takes a dig at you (read: a fight), do you go for the jugular and get “in their face” or try to peacefully smooth things out and have a calm discussion?

hmmm Usually when that happens it’s because I deserve it… I don’t “get in her face”… more like I think up some things to say in return but keep quiet… and when I’ve listened to the whole bit we are both quiet for a while…and then we can usually “talk” about it in a calm discussion… or I write my thoughts on the subject for her to read…

4. A friend once told me “You can tell when someone is bored with what you are saying to them when they reply with ‘That’s interesting.'” And I have found this to be pretty dang true. How do you know when someone has lost interest in what you are saying?
I’m really too paranoid and I usually have the feeling that no one is interesting in what I’m saying… However many people think that I’m never interested in what their saying because I don’t speak much…which is not really true…I just have a problem with letting people know that I am interested…

5. Ever get jealous of the popularity other Blogs?
Sometimes I write entries that I want people to comment on and I wish to myself that people would comment more or even stop e-mailing me about my entries and actually post a comment on the website instead… but really most of the time I’m terrified of popularity… I don’t think I’ve been jealous of any particular blog though…

6. What is your favorite dirty word? (those who don’t curse can pick your favorite happy word)
That has to be the f word…

7. (the continuing story…) OK, we are definitely doing that again. But seeing as it is nearly 6am now, how about breakfast? Anywhere you’d like to go or should we fix our own? What do you like? Or is there something else we need to do first?
I’m afraid I’m not much of a fun to be with… and as fro breakfast…hmmm I usually try to avoid having it…

BONUS: What have I done to deserve this?
Nothing my friend… you haven’t done anything… but life just sucks sometime…
