    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.

    I Like

    Different, strange and shiny things. And the people who enjoy strange, different and shiny things. I think its more of an instinct. We like different and strange and shiny from the time we begin to see the world around us. Heck we've all put things like these in our mouths...

    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.
