I'm not ambivalent about the cellar at all, right now. But then I have a life, summer is the peak, and summer is now, so I'm hardly here. Some of you clearly failed to notice that, as you named me in bitchery I was nowhere near.... nice to feel like furniture, though....

But right now I'm avoiding paperwork, so here's some home truths for you whingeing whatnots (not that you'll read them because you're so ambivalent....)

To the posters who share every fucking moment of their life in great detail... that's cool, we tolerate it, why can't you tolerate others need to share their irritations? Are you that special it needs to be all about you?

To the posters who never share anything personal, but chime in to agree or condemn... do you really wonder why you don't feel part of the community? Consider having -anf maybe even sharing- an original thought, ffs.

To the posters who start threads about what's wrong with the cellar.... consider leading by example. Did it really not occur to you that you're perpetuating the problem? Really? NEW TOPIC: I hate posts about hating....

My ambivalence factor just increased.

Do you know the difference between ambiguous and ambivalent?

I don't know, and I don't care.

To all those dear Cellar dwellars who haven't been feeling the magic lately: sorry I haven't been around more often.

I don't know, and I don't care.

Mine was a quote from a movie, which I was expecting at least Shawnee to get.

Obviously, I'm not feeling that ambivalent about the Cellar (or certain members of it) as this weekend on my jaunt o/s (all 1.5 hours away) I bought Sundae that "I love SG" t-shirt which was discussed so many months ago.

Maybe I'm misreading this, but I saw nobody mention Monster's name in regards to bitchery.

Let's just say I'm greater than 90 degrees but less than 180.

Me either, and to set the record straight, I wasn't even thinking about things like that when I wrote the OP.

Add me to the group of confusion infusion. What were you referring to Dana?

Maybe they can also find original thoughts at that yard sale? Or even, a life or something. You know, all that daring adventure like skydiving and scuba diving and swimming a hundred miles...not that daring adventure you get from reading True Crime.
