boredom brings all the boys to my blog

I was going to post this last night but was far toooo busy baking baking. Yaaawn. Still, Sunday's are quiet too. I love this song. I only know it and Milkshake, but I like 'em both. I think it's a great expression of the temporary frustration you feel at your partner from time to time. Or every day, whatever. It's a childish explosion, scrabbling to try qand put words on what you're actually feeling. When I was pregnant and my daughter was having a tough time, she told me she hated me about ten times a day. It was a bit exhausting, but I knew what she meant. I find my mental responses going to that impotent child place sometimes too. 'I hate you!' I don't, but I do right at that split second. She said it to her granny. Her granny said it back... :(

I read a worried post on Rollercoaster by a woman who's partner had shouted it at her, 'I hate you, I hate you!' - but she was having a row with him over how her inlaws were treating her, her husband was caught in the middle, and she had just thumped him and called him a shit. It was a sad little story, and I can imagine exactly how he was feeling. Chances are he didn't hate her, but he didn't have much of anywhere else to go right then.

Imagine my delight when I went to find the song on youtube, to find another of my favourite things illustrating it - Buuuuffffyyyyyyy!

Yay! Buuuuffffyyyyyy!

I don't think I have ever said that to anyone, bar my parents when I was young. But I have thought it in that intense moment of rage.

Ach tis not boredom that brings me here, jo, but the sheer random nature of what your post could be about. I'm rarely disappointed.

Re I hate you - I never say it about people any more. I find it too harsh and hurtful. Not saying there's not people I hate (or at least pity intensely) but I wouldn't bother even saying it to them at all!

Hee, cheers, Darren. I'm just amused when stray manly men from Twenty's wander into my pink blog. You're in a more metrosexual, at ease with pinkness category ;)

I can't imagine actually saying I hate you to anyone now, as an adult - other than a partner or a family member, and only then for the frustrated and regressive reasons mentioned above. But so far, I've recognised them as that, and restrict myself to shouting it in my head :)

Darragh said...

Darren? DarREN? DARREN??



As for the pink - nah, doesn't bother me at all. :)

jothemama said...

Whoops, sorry Darragh, I just looked more closely and realised I was talking to the wrong person :)

I hope that doesn't happen too often.

jothemama said...

Ach, I thought I'd got there before you noticed! We're stalking eac other round the blog :)

Darragh said...

Ah don't worry about it. Not even a little.

(just don't EVER do it again)


(yes it happens. I'm honoured every time it does ;-))

oh yeah.

Definitely have to restrain blurting out "you're such a bitch" sometimes.

Very temporary and ten minutes later all is well but for that moment.... AAARRRRGGGHHH!
