Question:

Was I the only one who, when in the first, second, maybe third grades when we'd read a story where something unfortunate happened to a character in the story and were asked as a class how we thought that character would feel, thought it was ridiculous that the only words we had in our very limited children's vocabularies were "sad," "bad," and "mad," not just because those words didn't do the emotion justice but also because of the very apparent rhyming of the words that seemed to make a mockery of what they were trying to describe in the first place?

While browsing the internet to do a little casual research for my non-fiction essay, I typed “virginity” into my Google toolbar, hoping to find some relevant articles to the importance of female virginity in some cultures around the world. All-knowing Google popped up a list of popular searches, which I browsed until one literally made my mouth fall open in shock.

“Virginity soap.”

Surely, I thought to myself, this must be a joke. Like the “wash away your sins” brand of soap that, tongue firmly in cheek, displays a grinning Jesus on its wrappings and boasts that it will cleanse you of all of your sins. So, curious one that I am, I scroll past the search results commenting on virginity soap, looking to find the real deal before reading anyone else’s judgments on it, and follow the search to www.virginitysoap.com.

"Like a virgin.

That's how VICTORIA Virginity Soap will make you feel once used on your most private parts. As an all-natural, mild and gentle feminine soap, VICTORIA Virginity Soap cleans your sensitive regions from bacteria and unpleasant odors while temporarily stretches the surrounding skin giving it a "tightening effect".

Used and enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of women in the Middle East and Asia, it has brought back youthful passions, rekindled sensual yearnings, and completely intensified sexual experience.

VICTORIA Virginity Soap. Discover your deepest sexual pleasures once again - - - just like a virgin."

Oh, but you’ll be comforted to know that the soap is all-natural and hypoallergenic, and a steal at only $5.99 per bar. And, “its powerful and natural ingredients effectively gets rid of odour and disease-causing microbes, fungi and bacteria,” because, you know, the vagina doesn’t do that by itself already.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! *is ded of rage*

From now on, this journal will be almost entirely friends only. I'm just not that comfortable with my life being publicly on the internet. If you want to read my LJ, just friend me and I'll friend you back (even if I don't know you, I'll most likely friend you anyway, though it would be nice if you'd comment saying where you found my journal).

:)

Every time people look at me now and gasp, "Your hair! It's blonde!" I'm tempted to grab my head and yell frantically, "What the hell?! How did that happen??"

My room kinda smells like feet.

My ipod crapped out on me, so I took it to the apple store. After doing exactly what I'd already done on my computer to try and fix it, the "genius" there looked up my warranty and told me that it expired. He said he could give me 10% off a new one, which is bogus.

It's impossible to find anyplace that sells the non-color click wheel ipods anymore. That makes me so goddamn angry. I do not have $300 to spend on a new ipod with a color screen I don't need and features I won't use.

ARG!

ugh  
I'm ill. Fuck. So here's a general warning to not come too close for a bit, unless of course it's to bring me soup or other comforting foodstuffs.

I finally finished Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. I started it this past summer and never got to finish it. Woot. The first half or so was a little tedious, but then it gets really good.

So now I need something to read on the airplane/train back to campus tomorrow.
