Reality check  

And this is different how?



Thought so

Try not to be stupid *every time* redhead...

That is the question. I ask the hard questions. I have no choice but to.

Perhaps that is different.

*gentle hugs*

And once again someone *completely* misses the point. Or that it was a question that *I* was *asking*.

But no big surprise that it gets turned around to the I/me viewpoint. 'cause it's all about the other people in the end, hmmm?

Notes to self:

- remember the rules
- words are easy for people (see previous entry)
- remember that from their POV it's all about them so you have to think about what you say in that light (and protect your ideas). Be more careful with words and phrasing.
- never make all the effort and spend all the $$ again - remember that only the BritBoys of the world are willing to let you do so for the pleasure of their company. If people suggest or imply such then they aren't worth any effort. Don't let yourself stumble into... the trap that it might somehow be different. Don't fall prey to irrational desires. Just because you want something doesn't make that aspect just go away. It takes two to tango, as it were. Don't dance by yourself. Or solely for another's pleasure.
- answering a question with the rephrased question is avoidance - don't get sucked into that situation either, even if it would be an intriguing conversation. There is more to life than debate and interesting discourse.
- always keep in mind that most people cannot keep up - don't delude yourself.
- you have a hellacious amount of brain power and the right to be arrogant, USE THIS.

hmmm, sounds stressful.

the yarn is comfort is yarn. please knit or spin. the end
of a skein simple means a new project.

my motto lately seems to be something like

the allure of NRE should be always be balanced with staying on the rope

the slope is slippery, don't stop but don't run,
slowly move, surely forward, ever forward

I agree with perspicuity, it sounds stressful...

*smiles and hugs the silly redhead*

Then again, she's always been good at giving herself stress, it's almost like she holds herself at a point of stress so complete, that as soon as anyone around her fucks up, it's the straw that breaks the camel's back, ya know?

It doesn't seem like that all the time, only every so often... and I do think you've gotten a bit better about this...

/me also offers *hugs*, were i local, the offer would not be
so virtual. i might even read terrible elephant jokes out
loud until she fell over and laughed, unless chased off with
a pointy bird or three.

i wonder about stress. i know people who define themselves with
and by it.

not for me. a motivating tool perhaps, sometimes, but not

No, and you know better.

I put up with a lot of 'people around me fucking up' on a regular basis and ignore most of it. Or at best grumble a bit.

Tell ya what - I'll trade my last 7 months for your last 7 months - deal?
