I have a crush on you. - The Life and Thoughts of Zach

Jan. 27th, 2004

05:43 pm - I have a crush on you.

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Earlier today I thought about playing this game (by registering crushes in the first place, I never originally did the first crush meme). But then I was overwhelmed by how much silliness such a game would cause.

If I used to date someone, and still like em plenty enough, are they an ex-crush? Or is ex-crush only for people I now dislike? If I would have a crush on someone if they weren't currently dating someone, is it rude to state a crush on them via a website? If I had a crush on them until I found out they were dating someone, does that make them an ex-crush? If I have a crush on someone but don't have ANY intention of following up on it because I know it just wouldn't work, what would I do if they found out? Is the expectation one of a wide net, and hence anyone I vaguely think is cool should be listed or they'll feel dissed or a narrow net so that anyone who finds out I have a crush on them will think it's serious?

So I currently resist this meme because it makes me neurotic just thinking about it. It helps that NO ONE has listed me as a crush so clearly all my friends suck. :)

So let's just say that I've got a crush on most of you and if you pay me $4 I'll tell you if you're in or out, with a detailed account of just exactly what the nature of my crush for you is. :)

first i've heard of that game. it does pose some interesting questions about the nature of crushes. :P

i have to pay $4 to find out if i'm in or out? how about i ship you some avocados instead? aren't they insanely priced in the midwest? (they're insanely priced here, where they grow on trees, so it seems logical to assume they're even more expensive there.) and, i'm trying to barter as much as i can, seeing as how cash is tight. :)

I'm certainly not going to stop anyone from sending me $4 worth of avocados. :)

I was just reading last night that avacado oil is a good herbal treatment for the skin.

Oh, great. Thanks to that, I've now discovered that someone, somewhere, has a crush on me. Why won't they tell me? I need to be loved, dammit!

BWA!

Is it better to be crushed and not know who than never to be crushed at all?

Well it's 2-4 bucks to find out the same thing from crushmeme and they won't even give you all the details. :)

dude I think you should just do the meme informally + explanations and then post all the results here. That would allow you all the explanatory power you need. and we'll all give ya somethin next time we see you. jasunshine and I have some awesome bottles of rum! :)

Grr. I tried to be all clever with a paypal button but it won't display right.

So you'll have to click on an old fashioned link.

It's weird how a word can become unrecognizable if you read it a billion times in one sitting. It's kinda got a life of it's own. Crush. Crush. Crush. I just hear the hard consonant beginning and the air-running-out-of-the-tire 'ssssssssssshhhhhhhh'. Weird.

Anyway, I got a crush on you and you don't have to pay me 4 bones to find out. I even told bolo the other day... Just ask him.
