I don't feel like giving you any sort of ease-in intro, so I'll just dive into this journal.
I've been feeling much more male than usual today... about 85%, which is much farther than my gaajindiak-scale usually tips in either direction. So... I'm extra-annoyed at all the anti-gaj's out there. Meaning my mother, mostly. A sample conversation:
'She's right here!'
'GAJ's right here.'
'IT's right here!'
Basically whenever I corrected gaj, 'she' either stayed there or was replaced with 'it'. >:( I'm not happy.
I'm so eternally grateful for Jayjay right now... gaj's the only one who will consistantly say 'gaj'. And I appreciate that ever so much...
What I want for Christmas is for my family to call me 'gaj' and 'gajindiak'. I don't need this DS software, or these iTunes gift cards, all I want is a pronoun. Please?
My stupid mother: 'You'll never train me to use this word for you. I don't like it. I'm uncomfortable with it.'
Also to my annoyance, Jayjay seems to have caught the cell phone obsession-bug. Sigh. But I guess I can't deny gaj the happiness it seems to bring gaj...
As opposed to all these electronics, my top 3 favorite presents are:
A beta fish, from 'Santa' aka Mom. (named Eli, it seemed... perfect. Aren't you honored, Centerfielder?)
The Ultimate Mythology Encyclopedia, from my uncle, who rocks at present-picking.
A Thneed. (Actually, it's a super-fuzzy robe thing, but as I pulled it out of the box my brother yellled, 'It's a THNEED!' So... it shall now be forever referred to as a Thneed.)
I'm so darn maaad... I never want to hear 'she' or 'her' again. Stupid world. )':< Stupid gajindiak. RRRrrr... Can't gajindiaks exist in our own right? Noooo... of course not...
