I Enjoy the Different and Strange and the Shiny

    I Like Shiny objects

    In high school my friends used to laugh and tell me I had the attention span of a retarded amoeba. Then to prove their point, when I was talking, they would swing a shiny thing in front of my face, and watch the thoughts go away.

    Low Attention Spans, Anyone? :p

    I enjoy the unique, but my attention span is getting to be extremely low for anything that's NOT. I am judging things too quickly... If I hear a new song that sounds like something else, I lose interest. A book labelled a genre I will quickly judge. Uhh... yeah.
