If you must, take this as my solemn vow that I will never blog about anything serious again.

Before we begin, a note: I totally did not know if I spelled solemn right in the title, and I did not believe blogger when it told me I did so I went to Word and when it also said it was spelled right I still didn't believe it so I totally checked the Thesaurus to make sure it was the right word after all. However, I am not at all concerned with that horrible run on sentence.

So, this may sound slightly selfish but I would totally be willing to give up Will Smith's existence if they would just stop showing re-runs of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

One thing that annoys me more than The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is that lately every person that I run into that I haven't seen for a few years keeps telling me I haven't changed AT ALL. Don't get me wrong, I don't care that I haven't changed, but what they really mean is that I am still blunt and sarcastic. Which, again, I don't care, but WHY are they saying this. What do I do that prompts people to go, "Oops, still a bitch."

Sometimes I say something that prompts my nearest friend's eyes to pop wide open in disbelief and I'm like, "WHAT DID I SAY?" I mean, what kind of world do we live in that people are so blatantly shocked at a little damn honesty? Here's a recent example:

Setting: a friend of a friend's party for a friend's fiance. (heh)
Amenities: a pony keg, cheese ball and some brownies.
Status: not nearly drunk enough to be having fun.

Friend: So, what is [your brother] doing tonight?

Me: Probably something more fun than this.

Everyone in the room: *crickets*

I mean really. The host and hostess weren't in the room. I don't think I'm destined to be understood in my time.
