Re: ugh

Spook- I don't know you, and maybe I shouldn't say anything, but I've been following along (I just know what discussions to stay out of) and I think it's fair to say that you most likely became an adult when you went out on your own, at least when you had your first kid. May have been well before then. I know some 16 year olds who are more adult than some 60 year olds. Don't worry about the age thing. It's the opinions that are to be respected, whether agreed with or not. There are those of us who look beyond age (had no idea what your age was until stated) and respect what someone has to say, and there are those who can't see anything past their own long lived experience, you know, the whole I'm older than you so I know more.

Don't know if this was out of line, but you sounded like you needed a pep talk. Intellegence has nothing to do with age. And neither does maturity. Hang in there. You speak quite eloquently and those who count will respect your opinion, whether agreed or not.

Re: ugh

Thank you so much. I did not find it out of line at all. I appreciate the pep talk. It's nice to know there are people out there that can see beyond a silly number. Wisdom is from life experience, not a birthday.

Re: ugh

Spook, I know exactly how old you are (several years younger than what my oldest daughter would be right now), and find you mature beyond your years (or at least beyond what is commonly thought of as the wisdom you have by then). Aging is mandatory. Gaining wisdom is optional. You seem to be right where you belong. And you've earned the right to have - and express - whatever opinions you want!

:hug

Of course, I still don't know why anyone trusts you with sharp objects, but that's another issue.

Don't know what's wrong, but remember your blood pressure, dude!

Here...

Now, take a deep breath, tap your heels together three times, and repeat after me: There's no place like home, there's no place like home...


Better??

A private scream

I need to let off a little private scream here. Certain "people" keep misspelling a certain word that's going into one of my books even after I corrected the spelling and now I'm all paranoid that's how it'll be spelled in the final draft.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The Screaming Thread

Because God/Mother Nature/Fate/The Cosmic Muffin has a very puckish sense of humour.

I like the old Arab (I think) saying: Man plans. God laughs.

I'm sorry for ya tho spook. But now it's a good thing's turn to happen right?

We can hope. (Just don't plan.)

Send your muse over this way. I'm beginning to think a bad muse beats no muse.

Stupid People

Parked car, been parking it there for two years--AM today, sticker on it that says it will be towed. Somebody complained it was parked there--can't be parked in the same spot more than three days!

Only two new neighbors--across the street and next door across other street--both jerks--tell me:

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE MIND THEIR OWN BIZ?????:teeth

Damn people and their mini power trips--now I remember why I hate living in town.
