Incredibly Ace Moments

Recommended Posts

One of the big bosses brought his toddler daughter for a bit and was playing with her.  A co-worker asked him if he wanted to have more kids.  (I think that he has three already.)  He just answered with that it's a big question and that kids are expensive.  The co-worker said that she loved kids and wanted seven of them.  My internal ace reaction was o_o.  She said that she plans to choose her man wisely.  Seven is a lot.  Usually I only hear people say five at the most.  I would've said something scientific like need all the right traits for passing on, but I think that would sound weird.

I was talking to one of my housemate's friends a couple of days ago, we weren't talking about anything in particularly, but the subject of "attractive people" came up. They were talking about some celebrity they've got a crush on, they showed me a picture of the person, I kind of shrugged; the celeb was aesthetically pleasing, however they were hinting more of a sexual thing. The shrug really confused them, I had to explain I don't feel the whole "I'd totally have sex with him/her" feeling they do. To be honest, I don't think they totally understood, as they thought the celeb "wasn't my type", so they found another "attractive" person, I shrugged again. 

After trying to explain again. I kind of gave up and said "I don't have a type of person I find attractive. I don't have those sexual feelings towards them, hell, I hardly  ever have romantic feelings towards them. It's purely aesthetic, nothing sexual at all."

Sometimes explaining I don't feel sexual attraction is hard. Maybe I should just get a badge saying "this person doesn't feel sexual attraction". 😩

Well, Rey reacted the same way as you, so.

Wait... is Rey ace???

Anyhoo. I don't get 'thats what she said' jokes. I'm kinda glad- if what I think they're implying is correct. whoever created that, in that case, is a big-time pervert.

There is a family that had eleven plus adopted two. The father is self-employed and is pastor at the local 'fundamentalist' church. Some of us figure he's skimming off the collection plate to afford a family that big.

At the Christmas party of our martial arts club. ("R" was someone from my school I brought along because he wanted to try martial arts. He stopped after a few weeks though.)

 

Guy: "What happend to >R< anyways? You know what he's doing these days?
Me: "Yeah, he's working at a medical office."

Guy: "Ahh, ok. You know, we always thought that >R< was your boyfriend."
Me: *looking irritated*
Guy: "Eh I didn't mean it in a negative way.
Me: "No, I know. But WHY?!"
Guy: "Umm, well you see you are you*²) and then ony day you bring this guy along..."
Me: "Yeah so what? He was someone from school who wanted to try out martial arts."
Guy: "So he wasn't your boyfriend?"
Me: "No." *laughing*

 

I mean seriously WHY? O_o I still don't get it. We didn't even talk much with each other^^"

Turning "ooooh this is good" food noises into "sexy" noises really annoys the heck out of me. Why do you need to turn food noises into porn? Why.

After watching The Last Jedi

Me: But why did Kylo Ren have to be shirtless?

Brother's girlfriend: Yeah I guess he did look kind of weird. I think it was because you couldn't see his bellybutton. 

Me: yeah, but WHY? I never wanted to see him shirtless and I really wish I hadn't. 

BGF: Just because he's not tanned...

Me (inwardly): why would I care if he was tanned I just want him to keep his clothes on why is that so hard to understand?

Me (outwardly): *awkwardly laughs*

A friend, my niece, and I went to see this last weekend and both my friend and I decided it was nothing but pure "fanservice" - the act of having a character half-naked, or fully naked, for no other purpose than to thrill a certain portion of the audience. Personally, I think it led to the best line in the movie "Do-do you have a towel or something you can put on?" I was cheering for Rey at that moment. LOL

It's just a way to make an innuendo out of everything, as usual.  People say it when a girl says something that could be taken the wrong way.  Usual ones I hear is about something not being big enough or long enough, and whoever says it wants you to think she's talking about penises.

I think about some conservative family with 20+ biological kids in pop culture.  They really show off the gender inequality by putting the restrictions on the daughters.  The father preaches how natural having children is.  It's kind of freaky that they have their oldest kid who's in their 20s and the youngest is a toddler.  Then I think there was a scandal where the oldest son was committing infidelity by assaulting his sisters, even though the dad preached how they wouldn't do that.

This may sound cold, but to me it's as if the woman is being treated solely as a baby making machine.

To be honest, as a person who usually aesthetically appreciates that kind of fanservice... I don't know if it was because of the clothing or the camera angle, but he looked so weird xD I don't understand how people could find him sexy, I agreed with Rey on him putting a shirt on xD

My mother has literally mentioned science aptitude and good teeth as reasons she liked my father and thought they'd make a "good mix" of genes. Yeeeeah she's probably on the spectrum.

Also she was initially interested in him because he helped so many elderly ladies on his street. Now that one's a lot cuter.

Those women are brought up to be precisely that. Look at a picture of Michelle and her daughters sometime, there's nothing in their faces, esp. their eyes. Blank, all of them.

Why? Because of the fanservice? I like fanservice more when people are all dressed. I love innocent, fully dressed and fluffy fanservice. If someone appears too undressed... I don't want to look at it, It's like I'm invading someones privacy and I feel uncomfortable. If it's small parts of skin exposed it's okay, though and way more interesting than half naked or fully naked. :D I don't want to know how these people are without the clothes, thank you very much!!

Yes, I felt so old when you mentioned it and I didn't have a clue what you were talking about. I had to ask you to explain.

In It's A Wonderful Life, the scene where George gives up all of his goals and aspirations to be with Mary, I never understood it. It seemed so out of nowhere! (and totally opposite to what he wanted) It took me a while to realize that it was a matter of attraction lol

I was surfing Youtube looking for the Vapours version of Turning Japanese. I spotted this:

 

https://youtu.be/oVjMF_TfY6M

 

Of course I had to watch it (like a car accident). Afterwards I figure I'm going to Hell for this. What with watching an adult actress dressed up like Sailor Moon dancing around...

Reminded me of a running joke friends and I'd had in the past. "Any particularly favourite porn sites?" "Yeah, www.catholicschoolgirls.com" That video to my eyes looked like it would appeal to a 'certain' portion of the audience. Then I had fanservice explained to me.

A couple of years ago my circus group did a big production and one of my friends came to one of the shows.He was the only one of my friends who was there that evening so I spent pretty much all of the intermission talking to him. Later on one of the other girls from my circus group asked me if he was my boyfriend and I was so confused why she would think that, both because apart from talking and laughing together we didn't do anything couple-ish, we didn't even hug hello and because he's gay and it kind of shows (even I suspected before he came out to me and my gaydar is rubbish). When I told him about that conversation afterwards he found it quite funny and jokingly asked what else he could do so people wouldn't mistake him as straight and if he had to break out his rainbow bow tie.

I first thought my dad must be, but my mom is showing some quirky tendencies too.  I visited my friend the other day and her brother was telling me the stuff that happened to our club (we all went/are going to the same university).  He said that I win the award for the most character development.  Mom took this literally and thought that I won this award last year because that's when I graduated.  No mom, it's just a figurative award, not a physical one.

 

I probably mentioned this somewhere earlier, but my cousin once asked my mom what she liked in my dad.  They're merely legally married since they show no affection for each other, well it's mostly mom and dad wishing he had some.  My cousin said that my mom's reply was that my dad was a handyman.  He often goes out of his way to help people (probably because he wouldn't get praised for what he does at home).  One day, my dad helped some woman out with moving her junk for the junk collection day when he saw her do it all herself (and ditching me, who was left with the car in a long line to the collection site).  She didn't have to wait in line because she lived next to the junk site.  After dad helped her, she was very grateful.  My dad told her that he lives 5 minutes away, near the big square, and that we have a dog sign in our window.  She actually came by looking for him.  Sometimes she came over to our neighborhood dressed nicely too.  She would give him some food in return for his help.  (Dad's good deeds in the neighborhood have somehow gotten us two jars of peanut butter.)  I do wonder if this lady has a thing for my dad.  I then joked back to my cousin and mom, "dang, those handyman charms are working."  And I think mom could be jealous, not because she wants his affection, but more like if he spends all this time with other people, he can't do the stuff she wants him to do, because that's usually what she spends her time thinking about.  Mom sometimes talks about this woman to me in a defensive tone.  I asked, "do you care?"  She replies no, but I think she still has something in mind, like who's going to do stuff for her.

I have a friend who introduced me to martial arts and now we both are really into it.  Since I was this socially awkward person who barely knows anyone, people would make jokes about us always in the same place as each other at the same time.  One guy even asked where was my other half.  The romance-repulsed person in me had to keep denying it.  We're both ace but my friend is allo-romantic, although demi, so I guess we can fit in like that as aces.

 

Also a fun conversation with two friends.

[after a few messages exchanged]

Person #1: *posts sticker of Pusheen sleeping with three z's in pink, yellow, and teal-ish blue*

Person #2: What?  Are you going to sleep?

Me: in pansexual colors

Person #2: You're right.

Me: [Person #1] is going to sleep pansexually? :lol:

(Person #1 really is pansexual.)

Person #2: How else would she do it?  I can sleep for 8 hours straight and then 4 hours gay.

Me: :lol:

Conversation with one of my sisters who doesn’t know I’m ace:

 

me: Well, he needs to move on. I have.

sister: Some people, you never get over. You just love them for your whole life even if they don’t love you. I think he is just going to love you forever. You’ll understand someday when you fall in love like that.

I bought it during the Memorial Day weekend sale.  I asked my friend to teach me but we haven't gotten to it.

 

I got an ace moment after karaoke.  This one girl asked me about how I knew the organizer and then school things, because some people are still in school.  I mentioned about how I started in engineering and when I was switching majors, Asian family friends and relatives keep saying to go into computer science, which was what she was studying, because good pay, but I hate programming.  She then joked, "no money, no honey."  I replied, "I don't need one."  Probably only the organizer and the other mutual friend knew what I meant.

A work colleague (Who doesn't know I'm ace) tagged me in a FB post with the following meme:

No automatic alt text available.

I responded like:

Quote

7+3x=9x+1
3x+7=9x+1
-6x+7=1 when you take away the 9x

-6x=-6 when you take away the 7

-1x=-1 So
x=1
GF=3X

GF=3

 

No idea why you are sending me algebra questions...

Of course I actually understood what the joke actually is.
