17. Insulting you while getting you out of tight spots in games you actually play

49. Frustrating you by being accorded different treatment by your parents on the grounds that:

(a) you are different people ( * very frustrating when this is text/sms-messaging at the dinner table/going out/having long phone calls )
(b) your parents now realising that what you did at his age was normal ( * very frustrating when this is wearing black
(c) Because they are boys ( * utterly infuriating when this is cursing [although once we did a very interesting experiment in which my brother proved that he could recite what we would deem to be NC-17 first-person slash fiction at the dining table and our parents wouldn’t notice {They didn’t.} ])

50. Being themselves.

I desire more information, please. :3
31st-Jan-2005 11:15 am (UTC)
Yes! I wanna know too!
31st-Jan-2005 10:03 am (UTC)
Almost, *almost* makes me wish I wasn`t an only child :D
31st-Jan-2005 11:22 am (UTC)
*tempts you further*

Sisters are even more fun XDDDD

*runs*
31st-Jan-2005 11:16 am (UTC)
Ahahah yes, I think it's in the brother's clause or something that they have to behave that way, sheesh. Sometimes nice though!
17th-Feb-2005 03:25 am (UTC)
THAT IS SO TRUE. When I talk to my friends with brothers, I'm always so shocked at how similar sibling behavior is. IT MUST BE A CLAUSE.

And sometimes their being nice makes up for all the evil. XD

You have nice brothers who'd beta your slash fictions (albeit laughing the whole way through?) Looks like they pwnz you, though - you look so powerless against them...*laughs*

Siblings are very good for pulling one's self esteem to the ground and rub it in dirt since they're always so amazingly frank. XDDD Which is why I never have any confidence in anything that I have some skill at. Probably.

YOU NEED TO REMIND ME, TOO? : ( I KNOW... *SAD* *CRIES*

*IS ALSO LAUGHING*

I so should not have been the oldest. But then if I weren't, I'd be stepped on even more than I actually am. *laughter*

Siblings are very good for pulling one's self esteem to the ground and rub it in dirt since they're always so amazingly frank.
MY GOD, I COULD NOT HAVE SAID THIS BETTER?! THIS IS SO TRUE?

Which is why I never have any confidence in anything that I have some skill at. Probably.
OH MY GOD, YOU SHOULD? *HUGS YOU* BECAUSE YOU'RE REALLY GOOD!
31st-Jan-2005 11:25 am (UTC)
I've always wanted a brother, but have to contend with having a brotherly dad. >.>;;;;; Which is not good, because you won't know when to treat your father like a father.
31st-Jan-2005 07:32 pm (UTC)
omg I have the same problem. *hugs you*
31st-Jan-2005 12:53 pm (UTC)
Sisters are like that too! + we can steal each other's clothes!

::glomps::
17th-Feb-2005 03:30 am (UTC)
*HUGE GRIN*

My clothes sometimes get put in my brothers' clothes cupboard! And they wander around saying, "I'm sure I didn't own this..."

*GLOMPS YOU*
31st-Jan-2005 02:08 pm (UTC)
Haha yeah I can agree with *most* of that, minus the slashy bits. Sisters are good for most of those things too you know! As are Jedi Padawan!
17th-Feb-2005 03:32 am (UTC)
SOBS I HAVE NO SISTERS FOR COMPARISON! *is sad!* Apparently when I was young I cried because I figured out that my brothers each had a sister (me) and a brother, and I ONLY had TWO brothers. Kid logic. XD

Jedi Padawan are good for these things AND other things, too! *huge grin* *HUGS MY PADAWAN*

I <3 YOU. *HUGS YOU TIGHT*

Brothers are PURE EVIL only mitigated occasionally by SHOCKING EPISODIC MOMENTS OF PURE NICENESS.
31st-Jan-2005 03:06 pm (UTC)
I can relate to most of this XD
17th-Feb-2005 03:34 am (UTC)
HEHEHEHEHEH XD A great number of brotherly traits are highly universal. I don't know why. *HUGS YOU*
31st-Jan-2005 03:22 pm (UTC)
46 - The Small One (he shall ever be named thus!) does this ALL the time to me! And 47 - we went to a 15 rated movie (I was 20 and he 13) and *I* was asked for ID while he wasn't. He will never let me live this down. Ever. *le sighage*

Brothers are great.
17th-Feb-2005 03:35 am (UTC)
*hugs you* I feel your pain. And yes, He Must ALWAYS be named The Small One. We cannot let their size get to their heads.

And yes, they're great. *grin* Amazing, isn't it?

*hugs you* Hope you're feeling better soon... *hugs*
31st-Jan-2005 03:53 pm (UTC)
So true. Most of it, anyhow. :)
31st-Jan-2005 07:31 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't know? >
31st-Jan-2005 10:06 pm (UTC)
Too bad I have no brother to compare it all to. :P
17th-Feb-2005 03:36 am (UTC)
*HUGS YOU* Sometimes it is a better thing! *hugs*
1st-Feb-2005 11:43 am (UTC)
hiya me dear had a question, i know your as big a movie slash fan as i am so i was wondering if you've seen Alexander yet as well the slash is too obviouse with the main character telling each other they love each other and theres an actually male/male kiss, shocking since this is a big holloywood movie!
17th-Feb-2005 03:37 am (UTC)
*HUGE GRIN* ALEXANDER WAS GREAT. AND SO MUCH SLASH! AND BAGOAS! *BEAMS* FANTASTIC MOVIE!
6th-Feb-2005 07:10 am (UTC)
awwwww... so sweet... *grin* though i'm not sure i identify with most of them.. *laugh* i don't think my sibs even *know* i write slash or am a slash fan... or at least i hope not... *blink blink* but yeah... we have fun in different ways... ^^
17th-Feb-2005 03:38 am (UTC)
*grin* Depends very much on your siblings. Mine and I had a violent relationship in our early years, until we grew too old for fighting. *laughter* I had fun with them, still. We used to play a great deal. *HUGS*

Hope work's getting better... *hugs you again*
