Shock Value

Ok, so this post actually isn't about Timbaland's album (or even his upcoming collaboration with Justin Timberlake and Madonna), but when I was looking for a picture I kept coming across this. Oh well.

I am shocked by how little anything shocks me anymore. Does that make sense? On any given day in the past few months I've found myself having dinner or drinks with friends/acquaintances while one talks about the new porn he just filmed, or the other one talks about his crystal meth addicted boyfriend, or one discusses his need for Viagra, or one talks about his recent HIV diagnosis, or one talks about the nude stripping gigs he has lined up. I listen to all of this without blinking twice. I don't know how I've becomed so desensitized to such taboo topics but apparently my ability to listen without prejudice shows, as I imagine this is the only reason why I am so priviledged to be a part of these controversial conversations.

So I have to wonder, is it normal that not much causes me to raise an eyebrow anymore? Does this mean I have finally become so corrupt that my value system is so backwards I wouldn't know "normal" if it hit me in the face. Or maybe the world isn't as "normal" as we want to believe and choosing to accept this notion leaves us in a vulnerable state of "abnormalness".

Eh, whatever.

Anyhoo, I will be posting pics from my 24th Birthday Bash tomorrow. Stay tuned!
