I find myself in all sorts of interesting conversations, one of the more interesting parts of insomnia, time for late night chats.

Snippet: Honi soit qui mal y pense

Categories: Snippets

Question: “Why do you think cosplaying women have gone so scandalous? Why is such shocking behaviour mainstream? What possible defence is there for prancing about in such tiny kit?”

Answer: In honour of your Anglicized spelling habits (natural or affected unknown) I will begin my answer with a line from one of my favourite BBC programmes: “Queen Victoria is dead, you know!” (Are You Being Served, Series 7, Episode 8, The Punch And Judy Affair) The only place you’re going to find anything resembling Victorian fashion in fact, is Goth, Dreadpunk and Steampunk, and even there I doubt Queen Vic would approve of all of the fashion choices. Kindly set your calendar to the 21st century, people dress how they dress, in life and cosplay, how they want to because they are free to do so; and, to quote the motto of the Order of the Garter “Honi soit qui mal y pense” (Shame on him who thinks evil of it).

Her: “why do you take pics of people w/weapons and cigarrettes and stuff?”
Me: “Because they are depicting the character they’re portraying as accurately as they can. Deadpool has guns and swords, as do a lot of other characters, some characters smoke and drink and have bad habits and they choose to be in character. Kind of the point of cosplay.”
Her: “Well why do they pick such loser chaeracters then?”
Me: “For the same reason you’re asking me dumbassed questions, it’s fun for them and apparently you.”
Her: “why be rude dude?”
Me: “I wondered the same thing when you started taking about loser stuff, figured if that’s how you treat people it’s how you think you deserve to be treated. Golden rule and all that.”
Her: “dick!”
Me: No. Tim, says so right next to the stuff I type, handy, huh?”
Her: ” 凸(`д´)凸 ”
Me: “Oh wow, I’m number 1 with you twice! I’m blushing!”
Her: “you prick!”
Me: “If you prick me, do I not bleed? If you tickle me, do I not laugh? And if you annoy me, shall I not repay in kind?”

Her next sentiment isn’t suitable for all ages, so we’ll just call it a table flip.

Her1: “BDSM is just something for men to hide behind, it is textbook rape culture.”
Her2: “So since I’m a practicing submissive, I’m just enabling rape culture is what you’re saying?”
Her1: “Every man you’ve been with should just go to jail and you too as an accessory.”
Her2: “What men? I’m a lesbian.”
Her1: “Oh, well that’s different.”
Me: “@__@ ????”
Her2: “Bullshit!”
Me: “How the hell did I get dragged into this mess?”
Her2: “You know how you’re always saying labels and buzzwords are being used to replace actual thinking?”
Me: “Yes…”
Her2: “Meet [Her1] your poster child candidate for that argument.”
Me: “Okay, I award the mic drop to [Her2] and now I need to figure out how to get back to my side of the looking glass…”

Snippet: Opinionated

Her: “You’re fat, ugly, opinionated and friendless,, so get over yourself.”
Me: “You forgot can’t dance, can’t sing, snores, flatulent, irreverent, arthritic, drives the speed limit even when people tailgate him in the slow lane, is very aware of his faults and doesn’t hide from them and doesn’t care what random people on the internet thinks of him. wink emoticon 

Background: She was the photographer at a wedding and ranted because a rather pregnant bride wore white. My opinion was that she was paid to be a wedding photographer and not a fashion critic and that someone paying for an event can wear anything that they like to that event. Things went downhill from there, and apparently that made me part of what is wrong with this country.

I thought that people not minding their own business was a bigger problem, but, what do I know?

Me: “I’ll rephrase the question, what kind of modeling are you hoping to do?”
Her: “like i said, boobs!”
Me: “Who’s on first?”
Her: “what?”
Me: “… <.< Sorry, disregard that, being random.”
Her: “k”
Me: “Alrighty then, I understand that you want your boobs to feature prominently in pictures taken of you, but what sort of modeling are you going to try and work into? Fashion, pin-up, lingerie, something else?”
Her: “something else?”
Me: Well, I asked for that, didn’t I? smile emoticon Okay, describe a shot that you’d like someone to take of you?”
Her: “face down to under my boobs.”
Me: “So, head shots and portraits?”
Her: “i geuss”
Me: Okay. Well, I guess the next obvious question is how do you want to display your boobs?”
Her: “bras langeray and bare i geuss”
Me: Well, I can’t help you with bare, I don’t work with bare models. I’m sure you can find another photographer that meets your needs.”
Her: “don’t you want to see a pix befor you say no?”
Me: “No, I’m good. Where are you at?”
Her: “boston”
Me: “Boston like in Mass?”
Her “theres only 1 boston! wink emoticon 
Me: “No, there are several actually. I thought when you checked my portfolio you said you didn’t live that far from us and that’s why you were interested. Boston is about 2,700 miles from me. Tell you what, I’m clicking off now, I suggest you start with the phone book for the greater Boston area, and have a wicked nice day.”

[bails from conversation]

Okay, since Allen Funt is dead, I’m going to assume that this wasn’t candid camera. But, if I find out that somebody I know decided to make my head explode… that’s a paddlin’!
