It's cyclical madness, IS. I've seen it over and over and over since my first baby days on local BBSs. Everything will smooth out again just before the next cycle. ;>

we occasionally go through group mood swings. Ride the wave, lay low, take what you need, give what you can, smile a lot, and if you have to, just nod and smile as you back up really slowly instead of making a run for it.
It'll pass. One thing about a writers' board. No matter the turmoil or trouble, we all just keep on writing and posting.
Hang of for the ride, Shrug. And bring some extra smokes. :)

See, this just proves the theory that perception is reality. Since Jenna created the political forum, I don't see near as much anger or flaming. Things seem relatively civil to me lately, even pleasant.

But I'd love a valium, if you're offering :D

Oh. . . AW seems just about the same as usual, more or less. Though, the more members we add who share their views and what not, the more we degenerate to ordered chaos. More views, more chances of disagreements, more. . .well everything if you catch what I'm getting at.

On a side note, I think the whole world is in a strange state of flux right now. . . no, this is not some strange Wiccan thing. It just seemed like last night everything was just a little. . . off. The blind lady couldn't find her apartment and the cops came, some guys dog broke its paw walking down the sidewalk and then a couple got into a shoving and shouting match right outside my apartment. All of this with like. . . ten minutes of each other in a 50 foot radius.

I went to the bar to escape. . . and lets just say that turned out to be a bad idea.

After Halloween I think everything will go back to a semblance of normal. . . if normal does indeed exist.

It's all about making good choices:
1. Eat chocolate
2. Fly off the handle
3. Hit the roof
4. Blow a fuse
5. Flip your lid
6. Have kittens

I choose "1" http://www.smileyarena.com/emoticons/Main/Large_Mix/chocolate.gif

although I might try the Stress Relief Aquarium.

You must be talking about other folks and not me. I'm never mean and confrontational. I'm sweet and nice just like candied cherry pie on top of a honeyed pecan danish. You know the other day, as I was petting and cuddling my kitten, I said to myself..I said "Jaycinth, as soon as you finish that short story about May Apple Puffy Tail, The Happy Sunshine Bunny that went to Nice Town and cheered everyone up and made them even happier and more blissful than the day before May Apple Puffy Tail arrived, you should go to AW and hug and kiss everyone and make their lives happier, too."

It's like a train wreck, I wanna look, but I'm on my work computer and quite frankly don't trust Spooky further than I can throw him-- and I've got a good arm. :D Kidding, Spook, ya know I love ya.

I'll just wait until I get home.

But to get things back on track with my post at least (chinese fajitas??? Y'all are weird, but in a good way) it's change. Some people are going back to school, kids are going back to school, world's going to hell in the proverbial handbasket in some places, and people just ... well, people.

I noticed something similar back before summer started, and commented to a friend of mine who is also on AW that I didn't want to post anywhere because people were taking things so dang personally. So, just give it time, people will get over the small stuff. If not, we'll just send Jenna's wrath in their direction. :Hug2: It's a friendly kind of wrath, though.

It does seem to me that I'm seeing offense taken more in the last two weeks or so. I'm also seeing offense given, messages which have no other interpretation. I just now alerted a mod to a problem message for, I think, the second or maybe third time ever. (I looked over this person's other messages here, and s/he clearly enjoys taking digs at people.)

Is this nature's way of telling me I'm not done writing for the day?

Maryn, who'd have said something obscene to the person in question if s/he'd spoken to her that way face to face

Thanks for clarifying that, Teddy, dear. Now if you don't mind I'm going to drink some water, eat some dill pickles and contemplate a story involving neon striped flying minature llamas, and candy canes.

Should there be multi-colored bows on the candycanes, I wonder?

I Shrugged, you're so right. Now, I'll be the first to admit I will jab good-naturedly around here (sarcasm is so hard to pull off in posts without someone misunderstanding), and if the topic is controversial to start with, I will certainly give my own oft-controversial opinion. But I just came over from a thread about Halloween that is supposed to be fun, and while it's no bloodbath, it's not a pretty sight to have a person who joined just for the fun get lambasted personally.
Please pass me the choco-valium.

I guess what Iím asking is: Is everyone okay out there? Do we all need a valium? Should we have one big collective group hug? How about some chocolate? Iíve become a little more agitated. I blame it on the violence around me. During my 9-years at my job, we have had FOUR murder related incidents involving employees. The fourth one occurred this past week. ScaryÖ makes you wonder about colleagues personal lives and people in general. I can use a valium and a sabbatical. You asked.

Here's where it is:

You have to drive to Canada, home of the "Whaddya Need?" pharmacy, and just past immigration, pull into the Duty Free Shop.

The choco-valium is in the same aisle as the moose-antler baseball caps and maple syrup bottles, on the shelf under the T-shirts imprinted "My grandparents went to Canada to get cheap prescriptions, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt, eh?"

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be on hand to assist you.

Itís the Internet for crying out loud. Itís a writers forum, a message board, people misconstrue what theyíre reading and take something wrong and make it personal. People get mad all the time on Internet forums. They even get mad at downtown meetings, even at town meetings and throw punches at each other.

LOL

Most of us do it at times, even as writers, we misconstrue what someone has posted, or we write something that is not quite clear to someone. Consider it practice in reading and writing.

LOL

Itís too bad we canít face off with each other and explain, or clarify ourselves Ė apologize.

If I don't have my one piece of chocolate, my one (yes, only one) shot of schnapps on ice, the skies turn stormy. But not too often.

I have a thought: Maybe we get grumpy from sitting in front of a screen that does nothing until we make it do something. Like play videos on YouTube or post here at AW or open our email. Or write.

And then we have to deal with rejections. I mean, yeah, there are acceptances that make us do the snoopy dance, and with time rejection letters do get easier to throw in the garbage (or delete), but still....
