    I have a friend who won't stop going back to her girlfriend despite the fact the relationship is totally fucked up. She has so many issues with her girlfriend breaking up, withdrawing, being too close to her exes, etc., and every time they have a conflict, she ends up becoming suicidal or wanting to hurt herself. I keep telling her it's fucked and she needs to let go, but no...Now they're broken up again and she says, "I fully intend to win her back, I did last time, and I'll do it again. I'll keep going after her until she says she doesn't love me". I feel like 90% of the time she only talks to me when she needs emotional help or she's horny anyway. I don't think we have a true friendship

    Also it occurred to me that two of my posts today are me just complaining. I'm just adjusting to a normal sleep schedule and I'm venting lol

    @Catwalk : While I find your writing abhorrent to attempt to read through myself, it occurred to me the other day that your style of writing would be incredibly useful as a shorthand system of note-taking. Do you use it for taking notes?

  6. #17976

    It's not natural, that style of writing. You're not writing your thoughts, you're organizing them, structuring them, it's almost robotic. It rips the art out of text.

    Yes, but...surely I should be sick or something? Guess I just feel sort of guilty for eating so poorly.



    Latest random thought: is having a childish sense of humor bad? 'Cause I'm starting to think that's one area where it isn't worth growing up or trying to be more refined and intelligent. Stupid humor all the way.

    Great for note-taking! Party organization! Organization of events - planning, and ''mess'' reduction! Great for computer slang'age / coding! Great for finger exercising! Great for paper / assignment organization of points!

    Bad for forums! :D

    Their fights always seem like all my fights with Fe people.
    Ross annoyed me also because he was so obsessive, emotional and high strung. Ultimately I'd marry Chandler....he was kind of an asshole though. Wait no I withdraw my choice. I go with Richard. Richard, I liked Richard. Can I go with Mike if things don't work out with Richard? Ultimately Mike was the best/normal guy out the lot.

    I'm not sure about Ross's MBTI though, I am inclined to go with ISFJ too purely because me and SJs don't like each other.

    I read this awesome post thingy about Monica's "soul mate" I agreed with it. FRIENDS Analysis: Monica Geller’s Soulmate is Richard Burke – Post Script Productions

    they did one on Ross too. FRIENDS Analysis: Ross Geller’s Soulmate is Julie – Post Script Productions

    Let’s get something straight, Ross Geller is the worst character on this show, but David Schwimmer is the best actor.

    One of the beauteous aspects of Friends is that the cast act as a unit. When one character has a problem, the rest of the group react unanimously. They are a collective unconscious except when differing views are needed. While this is establishing the motif of friendship… it’s also the show’s biggest weakness.

    You don’t need to be watching very closely to see one character say a line that was clearly written for someone else.

    (Ex. In The One with 5 Steaks and an Eggplant, Ross, Chandler, and Monica pay for the whole gang to see Hootie and the Blowfish, when Phoebe, Joey, and Rachel react disappointed, Ross gives the line:

    “Could you guys be less enthused?“

    While I added the emphasis on “be,” that line was clearly written for Chandler, but they needed to divvy it up between the characters more — equality in lines.)

    Despite this, Schwimmer stands out among the rest because even when a line needs to be altered, he never feels out of character.


    This isn’t meant to put any of the others down, but given David Schwimmer’s acting career (Shakespearean theatre) parallels how Friends was filmed (in front of a live-studio audience) and the fact that he was chosen for the role before they even had casting… it’s clear that he was a shoe-in to steal the spotlight – even if most of the time he plays the happy medium to keep us grounded in reality.

    However, some may be unconvinced that Ross is central to the show’s success. I say this because I have met many people that have said

    “Ross adds nothing to the show,”

    but seldom provide more than that. This is one of those situations where you can see who is a talented actor vs. what is written well.

    To vaguely quote Modest Mouse, people often give actors the credit that belongs to the writers, but it can be hard to determine who is more responsible – especially since the writers were known to pitch ideas to the actors to see what they come up with (ex. Episode 601, Chandler says, “I don’t think they’re as married as they are two bottles of vodka walking around in human form” – that’s all Matthew Perry, the direction he was given was, “… as married as they are totally drunk.”).

    Despite this, it is Schwimmer’s career as Ross that is a perfect example of how an actor can elevate the written material.

    The best way to showcase this is to take the character out of context.

    Ross is a cheater.
    Ross cheats on just about all of his girlfriends: Julie, Rachel, Bonnie, the woman from upstate concurrently with the woman from Poughkeepsie, Mona (-ish) — even on Carol with Phoebe — and Ross even makes Carol cheat on her life partner (later wife), Susan, with a kiss.
    Ross is abusive.
    Not in the physical sense, but he is the poster child of an abusive boyfriend. Being a notorious cheater, he is also supremely jealous, making him suspicious and controlling.
    Ross has two illegitimate children.
    From two (of three) failed marriages.
    Ross is condescending.
    Ross is egotistical and often belittles peoples’ intelligence. He toots his own horn whenever opportune and showcases his achievements, rock collections, dissertations, and slideshows like trophies.
    In short, on paper, Ross is an asshole.

    However, Schwimmer plays him as easily one of the most sympathetic characters and he doesn’t need Chandler’s self-deprecating humor (and history) to do so; it’s Schwimmer’s charisma that makes you gravitate to Ross. That is pure talent.
    I guess this all really irrelevant. I just liked this analysis and agreed with it. Just food for though I guess.

    @Clyme and @Catwalk I've told Catwalk before it's Te as fuck.

    It is Te as fuck.

    Contrast that with any Fi user on the forum. Do it. T-fucking-e.

    I personally don't know how she does it, I also kind of hate it but I respect and admire how she takes the time to organise it. You know how often I say fuck it and forget basic grammar and organisation because I'm lazy and I hate details? All the time.
