one day i passed a bakery store in a mall (which i visit frequently so i passed that bakery so many times) and i noticed that they've changed the name from 'bread story' to 'bread tales'. so when i met up with some friends and i told them (rather enthusiastically) that the bakery had changed its name. and they all looked at me like 'why are you telling us that?' or 'is that important?'

is it not something you usually tell people? because it's insignificant? i have problems figuring out what to say sometimes so i figured i might say something that i saw earlier that day but it seemed like people don't like it.

I"m guessing they were surprised by your enthusiasm, not by the content of your message.

That happens to me /all/ the time. I get so enthusiastic over things people are just all 'so?' to.
I usually either try to make them care of just keep telling people until I find someone else who cares. x)

Eh, happens to me a lot too. It's not coincidental that I have the world "Alone" tattooed on the inside of my left wrist. It's a reference to this Edgar Allen Poe poem:

Alone

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were I have not seen
As others saw I could not bring
My passions from a common spring
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone
And all I lov'd I lov'd alone


I am no longer surprised when people are not enthusiastic about the things that interest me. Smile

My mom usually tells me not what to say.
