    Ordinary Guy - Another Place & Time

    Post  HigherLove on Sun Nov 27, 2011 2:37 pm


    This is my new journalscrap book.

    I will speak as if writing to Donna, simply because I do not wish for anybody to personalize my experience.


    Oh: I am getting really tired of straight people defining my experience for me.
    ***I am going to do that every time I flag my own errors.

    If I had spoke from my heart and not my emotions, I would have said that at times it can get a bit tedious when Straight people, even with the best of intentions to empathize, attempt to define my experience for me.

    To that end, if anybody seeks information, or has INTELLIGENT AND AWARE QUESTIONS to ask, I would invite any/all to take part, provided their intention is in the interest of the highest good of all.

    And so a new life begins.


    ASCENSION

    Ignoring my own guideline and stepping out of "Donna" mode for a moment.

    For HORUS:

    My brother things did not come down the way they should. Again.

    My own behavior in the world in general has been appalling. I cannot point out the speck in the eye of another when there is a plank in my own, right? I cannot mandate that I am forgiven by simply choosing to withdraw my energy. As such, I ask for it, even if it is too heavy a burden for you to carry.

    When I talk about Donna, it is not the same as it is for you and Natalie. I'm sorry if me even speaking her name causes you any pain, but you can find your comfort with her in a way that others simply do not have. I get to hope Donna remembers seeing me at one of her performances, but you can communicate. As such, she is your Twin Flame. As I have noted previously, prior to coming here I had no experience with such matters.

    So I ask for your forgiveness. I ask for you to release me from the energy I created.

    This is from who you call "Christ-Michael", I believe:

    FORGIVE ME - DONNA SUMMER - LP - CATS WITHOUT CLAWS
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzClvtK8fBo


    Every day I give you a reason to cry

    I see the hurt in your eyes

    But stronger yet

    I see the love that shines

    Help me learn to take on the nature of you

    And love more than I accuse

    And pardon others like you taught me to

    'Cause something happens inside my heart

    Lord, when I obey

    Something happens inside my heart

    Every time I pray

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    The ones who broke my heart

    The way I've broken yours

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    And reach out through the pain

    And touch with hands of grace

    As you prayed for those who crucified you

    "Forgive, they don't know what they do"

    Compassion reched out to a world confused

    Help me learn to bless those who persecute me

    And pray for my enemies

    And show them mercy like you've shown to me

    'Cause something happens inside my heart

    Lord, when I obey

    Something happens inside my heart

    Every time I pray

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    The ones who broke my heart

    The way I've broken yours

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    And reach out through the pain

    And touch with hands of grace

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    The ones who broke my heart

    The way I've broken yours

    Forgive me

    As I learn how to forgive

    And reach out through the pain

    And touch with hands of grace

    Forgive me

    I miss my Gregg, Donna. But, he is back on the road today, heading for home. Depending on travel matters, he will be home tonight or tomorrow. You have always understood my romantic heart, and how easy it is to get sentimental.

    From "Bad Girls", your best album ever. I am sorry for all of the pain you were feeling at the height of your fame. Thanks to Jesus...you are still here. Me too.

    Thanks for this blast of electronica nirvana. I know you helped launch the careers of Madonna, Mariah, and Lady Gaga, but I know you keep your boundaries. Thank you Donna for just never having a bad thing to say about anybody. "Help me learn".

    OUR LOVE

    Dropping you this line to give you peace,
    And to set your weary mind at ease
    I know that it's rough when you're so far away
    Listen to the words I have to say

    Sometimes when you're gone, I don't know why
    I find the simple need to sit and cry
    It's not that I'm lonely or, that I'm blue
    It's just that I need to be with you

    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever

    When I know our love is going strong
    And I have all I need to carry on
    And my mind and body seem to understand
    That for me you are the perfect man

    Our love, our love, our love
    Will last forever
    Our love will last forever

    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever
    Our love will last forever

    One of my favorite cards in the deck is the Revelation Card XVI (traditionally The Tower). The image depicts a young man coming out to his parents. The parents appear anguished, distressed if not disgusted. Lightening flashes downward through the open window. I find this a heart-wrenching card that many of us can relate to only too well.

    I had awaited Lee Bursten’s Gay Tarot for quite some time so was quite excited the day it appeared in my mailbox. Now this was several years ago, mind you, but I still recall it like it was yesterday. The deck was everything that I had hoped it would be and was not at all disappointed. Over the years, this has been one of my go-to decks to offer for my gay clientele or for open-minded clients preferring a more modern-themed deck

    The Gay Tarot is a deck of modern imagery focusing on the experience, identity, and sensibility of the gay lifestyle in contemporary society. The deck is devoted to the lives and sensibilities of gay men and depicts societal acceptance, self-reliance, inclusiveness, self-esteem and a positive self-image. What is interesting, is that it displays men from a wide spectrum of everyday life – there are young men, older men, firemen, hockey players, father, scientists, actors, politicians, construction workers, retired men, gardeners, athletes, judges, chefs and more. This is one of the few gay-themed decks that I have seen which I can actually relate to in my everyday life and feel that it is representative of our times.

    http://tarotdude.com/category/decks/gay-tarot/

    Several of the Major have been renamed, many (such as the Empress) incorporating the male equivalent. The following Majors have been renamed:

    The Intuitive (High Priestess)
    The Protector (The Empress)
    The Priest (The Hierophant)
    The Wheel of Life (The Wheel of Fortune)
    Self-Hatred (The Devil)
    Revelation (The Tower)
    Beyond Judgement (Judgement)


    One of my favorite cards in the deck is the Revelation Card XVI (traditionally The Tower). The image depicts a young man coming out to his parents. The parents appear anguished, distressed if not disgusted. Lightening flashes downward through the open window. I find this a heart-wrenching card that many of us can relate to only too well.

    _______________________________

    http://tarotdude.com/category/decks/gay-tarot/



    The image is so simple: A beautiful young man, bathed in moonlight. The moon itself is seen reflected in a deep pool. His eyes are closed and you get a real feeling of his connectedness to something - but what ? His facial expression could mean many things - pain, serenety, concentration, peace. In many ways, the card is as ambiguous as the Intuitive himself and that's what works for me. You never quite know what he's picking up on - which makes him both alluring and dangerous.

    "PORTAL/TIMESTORM"


    Donnie Darko doesn't get along too well with his family, his teachers and his classmates; but he does manage to find a sympathetic friend in Gretchen, who agrees to date him. He has a compassionate psychiatrist, who discovers hypnosis is the means to unlock hidden secrets. His other companion may not be a true ally. Donnie has a friend named Frank - a large bunny which only Donnie can see. When an engine falls off a plane and destroys his bedroom, Donnie is not there. Both the event, and Donnie's escape, seem to have been caused by supernatural events. Donnie's mental illness, if such it is, may never allow him to find out for sure. Written by J. Spurlin

    As a friend once said to another: "Why are you worried about dead people? It is the living that you need to worry about".

    Odd thing to see part of a contract in a Hollywood script -- or is it?

    These are the pages from the fictional book "The Philosophy of Time Travel" by Roberta Sparrow . The text in these pages are crucial to understanding the movie and the rules within the Tangent Universe.

    Foreword

    I would like to thank the sisters of the Saint John Chapel in Alexandria, Virginia for their support in my decision. By the grace of God, they are:

    Sister Eleanor Lewis
    Sister Francesca Godiani
    Sister Helen Davis
    Sister Catherine Arnold
    Sister Mary Lee Pond
    Sister Virginia Wessex

    This intent of this short book is for it to be used as a simple and direct guide in a time of great danger.

    I pray that this is merely a work of fiction.

    If it is not, then I pray for you, the reader of this book.

    If I am still alive when the events foretold in these pages occur, then I hope that you will find me before it is too late.

    Roberta Ann Sparrow
    October, 1944


    Chapter One:
    The Tangent Universe


    The Primary Universe is fraught with great peril. War, plague, famine and natural disaster are common.

    Death comes to us all. The Fourth Dimension of Time is a stable construct, though it is not impenetrable.

    Incidents when the fabric of the fourth dimension becomes corrupted are incredibly rare.

    If a Tangent Universe occurs, it will be highly unstable, sustaining itself for no longer than several weeks.

    Eventually it will collapse upon itself, forming a black hole within the Primary Universe capable of destroying all existence.

    Chapter Two:
    Water And Metal


    Water and Metal are the key elements of Time Travel.

    Water is the barrier element for the construction of Time Portals used as gateways between Universes as the Tangent Vortex.

    Metal is the transitional element for the construction of Artifact Vessels.

    Chapter Four:
    The Artifact And The Living


    When a Tangent Universe occurs, those living nearest to the Vortex, will find themselves at the epicenter of a dangerous new world.

    Artifacts provide the first sign that a Tangent Universe has occurred.

    If an Artifact occurs, the Living will retrieve it with great interest and curiosity.

    Artifacts are formed from metal, such as an Arrowhead from an ancient Mayan civilization, or a Metal Sword from Medieval Europe.

    Artifacts returned to the Primary Universe are often linked to religious Iconography, as their appearance on Earth seems to defy logical explanation.

    Divine intervention is deemed the only logical conclusion for the appearance of the Artifact.

    Chapter Six:
    The Living Receiver


    The Living Receiver is chosen to guide the Artifact into position for its journey back to the Primary Universe.

    No one knows how or why a Receiver will be chosen.

    The Living Receiver is often blessed with a Fourth Dimensional Powers.

    These include increased strength, telekinesis, mind control, and the ability to conjure fire and water.

    The Living Receiver is often tormented by terrifying dreams, visions and auditory hallucinations during his time within the Tangent Universe.

    These surrounding the Living Receiver, known as the Manipulated, will fear him and try to destroy him.

    Chapter Seven:
    The Manipulated Living


    The Manipulated Living are often the close friends and neighbors of the Living Receiver.

    They are prone to irrational, bizarre, and often violent behavior.

    This is the unfortunate result of their task, which is to assist the Living Receiver in returning the Artifact to the Primary Universe.

    The Manipulated Living will do anything to save themselves from Oblivion.

    Chapter Ten:
    The Manipulated Dead


    The Manipulated Dead are more powerful than the Living Receiver. If a person dies within the Tangent Dimension, they are able to contact the Living Receiver through the Fourth Dimensional Construct.

    The Fourth Dimensional Construct is made of Water.

    The Manipulated Dead will manipulate the Living Receiver using the Fourth Dimensional Construct (see Appendix A and B).

    The Manipulated Dead will often set an Ensurance Trap for the Living Receiver to ensure that the Artifact is returned safely to the Primary Universe.

    If the Ensurance Trap is successful, the Living Receiver is left with no choice but to use his Fourth Dimensional Power to send the Artifact back in time into the Primary Universe before the Black hole collapses upon itself.

    Chapter Twelve:
    Dreams


    When the Manipulated awaken from their Journey into the Tangent Universe, they are often haunted by the experience in their dreams.

    Many of them will not remember.

    Those who do remember the Journey are often overcome with profound remorse for the regretful actions buried within their Dreams, the only physical evidence buried within the Artifact itself, all that remains from the lost world.

    Ancient myth tells us of the Mayan Warrior killed by an Arrowhead that had fallen from a cliff, where there was no Army, no enemy to be found.

    We are told of the Medieval Knight mysteriously impaled by sword he had not yet built.

    We are told that these things occur for a reason.

    Alternative Explanations


    There is little doubt that this movie is very much open to interpretation. There are several possible explanations and in most cases plenty of viewers will love it even though they have no idea what happened. To be honest there can't be many people who completely understood the movie the first time they watched it unless they had some inside knowledge.

    The real explanation follows "The Philosophy of Time Travel" and you can read it here. When you follow this explanation there doesn't seem to be any holes in the plot. Every scene makes sense, the story is consistent and the whole movie comes together.

    Here are some of the alternative theories.

    Schizophrenia

    Dr ThurmanIt is implied in the film that Donnie is a schizophrenic and therefore the film is him going through an episode of his illness. This theory is plausible because every single event could be put down to this. Hallucinations and hearing voices is a schizophrenic trait and could easily explain Frank’s appearance. There is a scene with Donnie’s therapist at the end of the film where she admits to giving Donnie placebo’s as medication for his illness. This would suggest that he in fact never was a schizophrenic. For me Richard Kelly put the idea of Donnie being schizophrenic into the movie deliberately as a red herring. It's an easier alternative theory that allows first time viewers to still enjoy the movie.

    Dream


    The whole movie was a dream theory is of course possible but ultimately pointless. When he goes to sleep on October 2nd at the beginning of the movie he dreams this mystical adventure just before he gets smooshed by jet engine.

    The obvious hole in this theory is why do the first few minutes of October 2nd happen twice? An easy theory to enjoy maybe for the first watch but why would the director create this amazing magical alternative Universe theory and then just make it all out to be a dream?

    Donnie Is Shown the Future

    The Ghost Of Christmas FutureThis is quite a popular theory. It portrays Frank as a kind of Ghost of Christmas Future character who saves Donnie and then either shows him or allows him to live the next 28 days of his life. At the end Donnie returns back to October 2nd and now has the opportunity to choose his own fate.

    So many bad things happened in those 28 days including his girlfriend getting killed and Donnie becoming a killer himself that he decides to stay in bed at the end of the film to sacrifice himself for the good of others. By dying he saves Frank, Gretchen and his mother and sister from a plane crash.

    Unfortunately this theory asks more questions than it answers:

    Why is Frank giving Donnie this choice?
    Why does he tell Donnie to Flood the school and burn down Jim Cunningham’s house?
    Why does Frank appear as a dead version and an alive version?
    Why does “The Philosophy Of Time Travel” appear in the story?
    How does the unexplained jet engine figure in the story?

    The biggest weakness in this theory is the fact that Donnie is shown or lives out a completely different future from what would normally have happened. Most of the events only happen because we are within a Tangent Universe.

    Frank gets Donnie to flood the school which means Donnie walks Gretchen home.
    Frank gets Donnie to burn down Cunningham's house which leads to the party
    Donnie rips the engine off the plane his mother and sister are on

    None of these things would happen in the real world. What's the point in Donnie being shown an alternate future and then given the choice to live or die based on events that wont happen?

    There are just too many plot flaws with this theory. It just doesn't work and there are virtually no scenes in the movie to back it up.


    The Looping Tangent Universe

    Carpathian Ridgehere is a theory out there that follows The Philosophy of Time Travel but with one major change. The idea is that every 28 days the Tangent Universe collapses, then loops back round to October 2nd and starts over again. Basically the Tangent Universe is a repeating time-loop that will continue until Donnie is successful in returning the jet engine into the Primary Universe. The film is Donnie's first successful attempt at returning the jet engine and there have been several failed attempts before.

    This explanation can be read at www.themoviegoer.com/donnie_darko. One of the reasons this theory is so popular is it usually comes up on the first page of google if search for a Donnie Darko explanation.

    I don't think this idea follows The Philosophy Of Time Travel accurately enough. The Tangent Universe only lasts for several weeks before it collapses and destroys the whole Universe. If it looped back round every time then the Universe wouldn't be in danger.

    This theory seems to hinge on only a few pieces of the movie. The main basis of this theory is that Donnie wakes up on the mountain laughing at the beginning of the film. He's laughing as if he remembers something from the previous Tangent Universe loop. Now the major flaw there is Donnie wakes up on the mountain on October 1st yet the Tangent Universe doesn't start until midnight on October 2nd. Why would time loop round to before the start of the Tangent Universe? Another thing is wouldn't you find it a little amusing if you woke up half way up a mountain. Surely that is a better explanation for him laughing.

    Another point in this theory is the characters like Mrs Pomeroy, Grandma Death, Dr. Thurman all seem to have some kind of inside knowledge and a sense of what's going, like they have done this before. Well yes they do but not because they have done this several times before, it's because they are the Manipulated Living. There behaviour may be irrational or bizarre as they are trying to guide the Living Receiver to return the Artifact. They subconsciously behave in the necessary way in order for Donnie to succeed.

    Is the truth stranger than fiction?

    But his family can't save Donnie from the strange, menacing forces massing around him. Nor can his teachers, neither Pomeroy nor science professor Kenneth Monnitoff (skillfully underplayed by Noah Wyle), to whom Donnie goes for information on time travel. Monnitoff talks about Einstein-Rosen bridges, wormholes, and transversing same in "anything made of metal," then hands him a book called The Philosophy of Time Travel, by a woman who used to be a nun before becoming a science teacher at that very school. Her name? Roberta Sparrow. Soon Donnie is seeing strange liquid spheres issuing out of people's chests, displaying their future path of motion, including his own.

    http://www.locusmag.com/2003/Reviews/Person04_Darko.html


    Quantum mechanics poses some serious philosophical difficulties, because in its common interpretation (the Copenhagen school), it implies a couple strange things. First, it implies that the atomic world is governed by chance, which Einstein famously objected to by saying, "God does not play dice." Second, if two particles have entangled waveforms, measuring the state of one will allow one to determine the state of the other, even if they are separated by a large distance. There is debate as to whether this represents a signal propagating faster than the speed of light, which would violate causality. As a result, other interpretations of quantum mechanics been developed, including the suggestion that there are hidden variables that we have not yet identified (the Bohm interpretation, which was largely rejected after the work of John Bell in the 1960s), and the notion that the universe we live in is one of many concurrently-existing universesthe latter idea inspired the movie Donnie Darko, and Neal Stephenson's recent book Anathema).

    It flies, it drags and sometimes it crawls. We keep it, waste it and wish we had more of it. Time feels so natural to us that it is easy to forget just how stunningly peculiar it is.

    The more we learn about time, the more unsettling it becomes. Why does it only flow in one direction? Is it real, or just a figment of our imagination? Is time travel possible? How did it start? Will it ever end? And can it provide that frustratingly elusive theory of everything?

    Teleportation and Wormholes: The Science of 'Jumper'

    The movie "Jumper," opening today, has a hero with the extraordinary power to teleport anywhere on Earth by imagining the place he wants to go.

    As fantastic as teleportation seems, it can actually happen in the real world.

    "The fact is that physicists have teleported things over miles," said Edward Farhi, the director of MIT's Center for Theoretical Physics. "It doesn't violate the laws of physics."

    There's a huge — or rather, very tiny — caveat, however. For now, it only works with a single photon.

    The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better. Read More

    What is the It Gets Better Project?

    In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better.

    What is The Trevor Project?

    The Trevor Project, a benefactor of the It Gets Better Project, is determined to end suicide among LGBT youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including a nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.

    Read More

    What is GLSEN?

    GLSEN (The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network), a benefactor of the It Gets Better Project, is a national education organization working to ensure safe schools for ALL students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

    Read More

    What is the ACLU LGBT Project?

    The It Gets Better Project supports the ACLU LGBT Project, an organization that works to create an America free from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender expression, or HIV status through impact litigation, public education, and advocacy.

    Timeline

    Statistics

    Since our launch, calls to the Trevor Project suicide hotline have increased over 50%.
    9 out of 10 LGBT students have experienced harassment at school.
    LGBT teens are bullied 2 to 3 times as much as straight teens.
    More than 1/3 of LGBT kids have attempted suicide.
    LGBT kids are 4 times as likely to attempt suicide then our straight peers.
    LGBT youth with “highly rejecting” families are 8 times more likely to attempt suicide than those whose families accept them.
    By the end of 2010, the It Gets Better Project raised over $100,000 from 2,500+ grassroots contributors to help LGBT youth.

    Double Thumbs Up

    Thanks. I will have to edit that in some other places. I need all of the help I can get.

    I am half way through NOVA/PBS Vids on string theory....

    11 Dimensions, they say.

    I am still thinking of the 12 of your avatar.

    scratch

    And Nassim's Unified Field Theory.

    study

    Speaking of time and space, I wonder just how many threads I have woven this into.

    Have you ever just poured your heart into something, and only been told, "Actually you are entirely wrong, and here is why". LOL

    I barely understand this stuff.

    Even so, I shall still follow the albino

    Its semantics HL...

    When They say 11 Dimensions - What They mean is "Experiencable" Dimensions by Individuality...

    Of course They won't tell Us this yet but Its where the Info will eventually go believe You Me. By this It is meant that at that Dimensional Level - The 11th that is - We still have a remembrance of the Individual Path back to Source relative to the Incarnation that We Embarked out into the Creation as ATM.

    At the 12th Dimensional Level - Its Alpha and Omega | + & - | The Polar Dualities as Archetypes and at the 13 Dimensional Level - Its the Singularity | the Oneness | the First Source and Center of All Things | Awareness | Prime Creator - And at these Two Primary Dimensional Levels - The 12th and 13th that is - Our Individuality as having been a specific Avatar, is shed - And Unity of Oness through Trinity or Triune action is once again remembered and recognized as Our only Beingness.

    In the Beginning was the Void ( 0 - Immeasureable Frequency ).

    From the Void was begat the Singularity ( 1 - the 13th Dimension - The Father in Outer / Inner Doctrine - The Framework of the Creation / House penetrating into the Void so to be the Is-ness ).

    The Singularity begat Duality ( 2 - the 12th Dimension - The Son in Outer Doctrine / The Mother in Inner Doctrine - The Color, Action and Depth of the Creation / House in Its figurative Walls - Paint and Decoration ).

    The Duality then begat Trinity ( 3 - the 11th Dimension - The Spirit in Outer Doctrine / The Only Begotten Son and Daughter in Inner Doctrine - Those of Polarity Who would experience It ).

    The Trinity begat Quadratic Expression and Expansion ( 4 - the 10th Dimension - The Multi / Omniverse and the perfect template of Creation at the first level down from Divinity in Matter before venturing out into the Non-perfect various Superuniverses within that Multi / Oniverse ).

    Through this process - Singularity experiences amd comes to know Itself as - Itself. From there - All else has been moving along ever since...

    Anyhow, would it be a true statement then that your avatar follows string theory?

    Oh, Donna -- girlfriend, you just may not want to read this. It's a bit "adult" and more risque than the song that launched your career.

    Now, Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...................

    Do not read if you are looking for reasons to be offended.


    The Secrets Gay Men Don’t Want Straight People to Know

    As gay men and lesbians get closer and closer to the mainstream they've often traded in their image as the queer radicals who started the Stonewall Riots for the milquetoast assimilationists who want to get married and have kids and put HRC bumper stickers on their cars. That doesn't mean we're still not queer radicals. It just means we're hiding it from you.

    That's right, there are all sorts of secrets that Ted and Ned, the nice gay couple next door to you with the matching BMWs and the prim sweater sets aren't telling you...

    I have all of her stuff, too... of course. lol (studio versions; she cannot sing well, live).

    Part of this album was a tribute to Donna's producer (Giorgio Moroder). Does she give Donna ANY credit? NO! lol

    Beyonce does, however. :op


    There is a great parody of this with a guy in awful drag, with a bad case of gas. It is hysterical.

    I was going to write a book called, "MaDonna Summer...", but I have seen that used for other things.

    Perhaps your are some freaked out reptoid living in the body of a half remembered shell of nothingness

    Well Donna...I do not know if that was a joke or not, but it was addressed to me when I joked that I think I finally realized I am a Black Woman trapped in a gay man's body.

    IT HURT.

    IT STILL HURTS.

    Why?

    Ego and arrogance? Theirs? Mine? Both?

    Does it hurt because it was just a cruel thing to say, or because it may be true?

    Can never be careful enough...even in my spiritual home.

    But I must remember...ignorant American and reptoid shell that I am (not):

    And Sanicle - if you should see this -

    I get the point you were trying to make in another thread.

    I sort of crashed the dynamic of another family when I pointed out that after nearly 25 years of marriage, someone had become quite good at saying the many ways they hated people, then laughed, like it was a joke.

    They were quickly escorted outside for "correction" (they had more wine than I did, so I had to be the big boy; however, I made up for it the next day, but that's another story). :op

    Anyhow, I pointed out this dynamic, and was surprised by the "You are right" response that was so quickly in forthcoming.

    Ever gear up for battle and then someone just ruins your bad time by being nice about things?

    LOL


    Oh well. I am too sensitive and hypervigilant. I need to stop looking for reasons to be offended and full of myself: THAT is reptilian.
