10:46 pm - It has come to my attention...

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

That someone made up a reason out of thin air why I was having a hard time finding an apartment and subsequently has been telling people this reason as if it is fact. The supposed reason is that I do a lot of pot, which is an idea that would cause most people who know me at all to give you a really strange look and fall down laughing. It's really interesting to me that someone is willing to make up a reason out of thin air and spread it around as truth.

So, yeah, if you don't know the reason for something in my life, please don't tell people random garbage you just sort of randomly find in some deep dark stinky place in your own soul. You can just report what you do know and let me tell my own story if I so choose. That will be just fine, thanks.

I'm sorry that that happened to you. I've had my own experiences with people hearing only a rumor and taking it to be the truth and the whole truth, and I know how detrimental that can be.

The combination of telephone game+imperfect english language sometimes causes great misunderstandings.

That's truly impressive. At least when someone came up with something, it's laughable what they came up with. :)

Yes, yes it is. I could think of many things along this line that have much less humor value. :-)

You are such a party animal

Oh Omni, it's okay. Don't deny it. You love the pot. Love it! It's good for what ails ya'. I hear you're dying of glaucoma too. Isn't that right?

I'm sorry, it's just too funny. I can't even properly imagine you stoned. (Maybe then I would finally get to hear you use a curse word?) I remember the time Rainonthewind and I got you drunk. We had to beg, plead, and sneakily freshen your glass several times before it happened - and then you just went to sleep. You are such a party animal.

That is so... junior high.

But at least they picked something with humor value :)

It is. Though that never, to my knowledge, happened to me in Junior High. I think I was unpopular enough that any rumors of that nature that circulated never made it to my ear.

And yes, while it's irritating to have ascribed to me, it's also pretty funny.

The funniest rumor that ever got passed around about me in school was that I was dating some guy who I'd never even heard of, much less met. Apparently we'd both heard the same rumor, because we sought each other out to at least say hello.

That's pretty amusing. :-) Did you like him when you met him?

I can tell what a user you are by your wording: do pot. to me that sounds like you chop it up and snort it, or maybe solublize it and inject it?

how can a social circle affect your housing situation? I mean, it sounds like you must have a cohesive group of friends. I would still rent to you if I knew you did pot.

Eye drops

(Link)

I have a sophisticated lab at home in which I distill the pot down to the active ingredients. These are dissolved at extremely high concentrations in a fluid which I then drop into my eye. My favorite aspect of pot is the bleary red-eye effect and so I made up my own delivery mechanism in an attempt to enhance this.

Bizarre.

I can't imagine what anyone would achieve in spreading false information about your habits.

I think it's more "There's a confusing bunch of information I know. I'm going to make something up that ties it all together, then tell people my speculation because I think I managed to figure it out!". I don't think anybody had any malicious intent. For the most part being a big pothead wouldn't be a much of an issue in the social circles I'm in. So, I just think it's someone letting their rampant speculation over a curious situation run away with them.
