should probably be in the kids thread but whatever it's doing my head in:

tonight i made chinese style spring rolls with fried thinly sliced potatos (took me an hour to cut the fuckers) with garlic spicy pork, sliced cucumbers, served with raw scalion and hoisin sauce on onion flavored Roti baked to a perfect golden brown.

she gets the bread, cheese, and salami out the fridge.

"what you're not going to even try this?"
"no."
"but how do you know it's not good if you don't try it?"
"i don't. it might be good."
"so why don't you try it?"
"because i don't want to."

i left it at that and didn't say another thing more...

Kids eh. 'Because I dont want to' I mean what can you say in response. I would of left the room and fumed. All that effort for nowt.

it's alright. i'm so used to it by now. TBH i didn't make it with her in mind, because i know what she is like when it comes to food: only 3 things allowed on the menu: pizza, lasagna, and pasta. thus the meal was really for the GF and myself, even though i was hoping... but really it was no surprise and not too much of a let down.

she's a really sweet kid in many other ways, and really adorable so it's easy to forgive and be patient. plus there is nothing anyone can do really, getting mad only makes things worse. her mom tells a story of the only time forcing her to eat something when she was small, like 4 or 5, just one spoon full, and she threw up all over the place. :eek:

however it was pretty difficult for about 5 minutes there to not

GET BARE EMOTIONAL... THROW EVERYTHING ON THE FLOOR AND THAT, HAVE A TEMPER TANTRUM
i remember the first time i had butter when i was about 9 or 10 years old. it was pretty fucking weird (what did you say this is? ... congealed... fat??? what and you want me to eat it???), but i put some on my warm chinese style buns and sprinkled some sugar on it, and i ate it didn't i? and got over the weirdness pretty quickly and kinda liked it didn't i?

wonder why it is that some kids are so damned picky while others aren't...

LAST FM.

THE MOST UN-USEABLE PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT WEBSITE EVER.

when you try to enter a festival date, it asks for VENUE. well THERE ISN'T A FUCKING VENUE IT'S TAKING PLACE IN THE FUCKING FOREST SOMEWHERE NEAR POZNAN POLAND INNIT. so you click "create new venue" and it puts you in a fucking INFINITE LOOP. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

and then all of a sudden it works, after about 300 tries, so you have 2 options: add to calender, or create another event. YOU THINK THAT IF YOU CLICK CREATE ANOTHER EVENT IT WILL SAVE THE ONE YOU JUST CREATED WOULDN'T YOU?!?!?!?!

WELL YOU'D BE WRONG.

MOTHER FUCKING INCOMPETENT LAST FM SHIT FOR BRAINS.

"because i don't want to."

i left it at that and didn't say another thing more...

At that point, there's the "you can't have any salami unless you try this" and you get into the battle of wills thing, which is pointless but sometimes works.

I actually never tried the tantrum thing but I think Luka's right on it. Making them realise how upset you are about how selfish they're being is a really good way of getting through to kids, they ultimately want to please you, or certainly want to please their parent, it's a little different if you're the 'significant other', the power dynamics are different.

I really do think you should just starve the selfish little brat though until it eats what you want ;)

the tantrum thing

this would be the easiest thing to do, i have to consciously stop myself from doing it. will never lose my temper with this kid if i can help it. god the only thing in my house when i was growing up were temper tantrums... i refuse to repeat those patterns...

(News) Websites that have a button to "View as one page" at the bottom of the article I'm reading.
Pressing this then re-load's the page, but you have to manually scroll though and find where you're up to.
Surely it'd be better to place the button at the top of the page.

having loads of great films in mind that you want to see when you get to the vid shop and then, when you get there, forgetting what they all are.

Just forgetting things in general I find a massive ball-ache. I have a terrible, terrible memory. It's one of the things that I most dislike about myself.

calling someone 'reductive' on the internet

it's the internet equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and going lalalalalalalala

it's the internet equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and going lalalalalalalala

but aren't you being a little reductive? this statement is completely at odds with the complex and variable ways in which the term is used.

Darned cockwombles.
when you specifically ask for clarification of instructions (in this case in an academic sense), and you get criticised for following said clarification. Twunts.

The double dose of eyerape meted out by the magazine adverts every time I walk past the kiosk next to the tube station. On one side there's greasy smugfaced twat Ronaldo, shirt off and pecs oiled for good measured, and on the other there's SJP's equine rictus. Eesh.

@people sitting exams... How did everyone do? Just finished my last one there, thank fuck. Spent the last 2 months doing fuck all except from studying and having a curry on a saturday. Still feel like I've missed x or y marks here and there, which bugs me but fuck it. Now I only have 3 months to wait for marks...

People who just put up a bare list of albums/tracks they are listening to in 'listening threads'. I kind of like the idea of giving a bit of a shpield about why you like it or what it sounds like. I usually take a bit of time to listen to something if that's been done.
