jona: a failing panda (panda - fail)
So I woke up and my desktop PC couldn't connect to the internet. I'd been having wifi issues for a while even before I went to Japan, timeouts and weird interruptions. When I got back from Japan the wifi didn't work either on my PC or my laptop anymore at all; the O2 guy I talked to the day after I came back from Japan reassured me that nothing was wrong with the router, and told me to do a reset. Stuff was sometimes working after that but still wonky, and at some point I went for the idiot solution and just plugged my long emergency LAN cable. But this morning not even the LAN cable wanted to work anymore. (My mobile phone, weirdly enough, can still connect to the wifi, but after trying a LAN cable and two different wifi adapters on the PC, and resetting everything there, I really don't think the problem is the PC.)

So I called O2. (A riveting start to any story.) )

So as I mentioned before, I'm on Tumblr now. It's been a bit of a weird experience because even after I figured out how to reblog and stuff, I still feel like I have NO CLUE how the whole thing works. But as a ten minute brain cleanser, it can be pretty fun. (But I can still see how I'm just not Tumblr's target audience, because the mute reblogging of pics really is only fun for about ten minutes, and my overwhelming urge is sometimes to comment on pics I find ridiculous, and so far I figure that's a bit of an etiquette no-no. I mostly restrain myself.)

But what I actually wanted to post about was lesbians.


First, my NEVERENDING complaint that the 'girls kissing' tag brings up all this fake-lesbian porn. WHY. If I want porn, I'll search for that! You don't need to SNEAK me porn, I CAN FIND THE PORN I WANT ON MY OWN. *SADFACE* *GRUMPYFACE*

I did follow a few Tumblrs that post pretty girls kissing pictures, and that's nice to have pop up in between all the JE pictures... but when it comes to reblogging, I get terribly self-conscious. Because a lot of what's getting reblogged seems to be not artsy photography type stuff, but snapshots of girls with their girlfriends. Overwhelmingly, late-teen-early-twenties girls with their girlfriends. And every time I go, 'This is a really cute picture...' and go for the reblog button, I feel like... I am a dirty old woman or something. >.<

And it's not entirely logical because I do know on the rational level that these are pics these chicks took because they wanted to put pictures of themselves making out with their girlfriends on Tumblr, and it's not like they're TWELVE or anything. But I have this WEIRDEST FEELING of 'I am too old to reblog pictures of nineteen-year-olds kissing.'

It doesn't make a lot of sense, I guess.

Twitter, Tumblr and Everything Else That Moves Fast, And Stuff That Doesn't Make Sense

(Disclaimer: if this post makes you think "omg she's talking about me", rest assured that I am not, because I really don't have anyone specific in mind. This is a thing I've had brewing for a while, and I'm not judging, I'm just puzzled.)
