listening to: matt caplan & joshua kobak, walk on the ocean (live)

mmmmm joshua kobak.

anyway. my rant. well. not exactly a rant. something. um. coffee. thing.

... so yes. as most of you may or not know (actually, i suppose.. as all of you may or may not know.. because it's really either one or the other, in'it now?) my friends and i have developed this intensely offensive sense of humor. it's all in good fun.. none of us are really racist/sexist/anti-semitic/etc. at least. i'm pretty sure we're not. um. but i mean, nobody really takes it seriously, i make decidedly sexist (anti-women) jokes all the time, even though 1.) i'm a chick and 2.) a feminist chick... right. so anyway. last night at monopoly, i made some sort of joke about ashvin, regarding him looking like a terrorist. which obviously i didn't mean at all, and meant it as more of a joke against stupid people who think that everyone of, or appearing to be of, middle-eastern descent (ashvin is indian, and hindu, and um, not a terrorist) is a terrorist. right. but everyone was really, really shocked. (after laughing for about 5 minutes.) which i, given the amount of jokes that we make without raising an eyebrow, wouldn't have expected. which actually kind of upset me, because i think there's a double standard. i mean, people make the most offensive gay jokes, or sexist jokes, and if miriam or i react... "just kidding!" so i think, and said, that i don't see why it's okay to make fun of one group of people, but not another. to me, that's more prejudiced than making the jokes.

yeah. just wanted to vent. anyway. must get ready for samantha's bridal shower! (i'm not sure if i've already blogged about this-- samantha, who i used to be bestest friends with in grade school, who went to green bay on my first rent-trip with me, is getting married. in may. she's 17. i'm freaked out. and.. gah. i haven't even seen her in like 3 or 4 yearsish! do you have an idea how awkward this is going to be?! *flails a lot* gah.)
