I don't think its helpful to make someone feel bad for feeling bad enough to say they're leaving. I think we read into the surface, and only feel for and prop up the imploring and beseeching folks. Maybe even the likes of lamp could use a little encouragement and a reiteration that they, too, are a valuable member of the community.

We're all humans, you know.

Well said, Inf.

I think we could all use more empathy and attempt to listen to and understand one another.

You're assuming derision doesn't stem from completely understanding.

Thanks dana.

Hey, I know I can be a real bitch. Those here who say I have value, in spite of said bitchiness (and clod is one of those people, thank you) help me realize that this place is like family in some ways. And I like lamp. I like sexobutt-head. Tomorrow I might hate them both.

I had a good day with my family. I hope you all did too. For those who aren't celebrating the merkin thanksgiving day, my wish for you is the same.

Tomorrow, I will return you to the regularly scheduled crazy infi show. Or not.

Re: Lamp. He's a stubborn man whom I disagree with politically. Aside from that I think we have a lot in common. I ignore many of his partisan posts for that reason.
Sad that another long timer is no longer here. Sad that he also took the route he took. Going behind another dwellars back and asking Mgmt to Ban another because you can't refute his responses is weak as shit. Pull up your pants and defend yourself, man. Srsly - If he was successful, would XOB have been next? They got into it a bit lately too.

Today I learned that being "fine" is no longer good enough for me.
I want more. I deserve more.

Oh, and on a lighter note - EVERYONE should serve turkey on Thanksgiving (barring deathly allergies) Chicken casserole doesn't cut it. WTF people?

Today I learned about a whole new brand of crazy. I got to work at 5am, so I didn't see the people who had started to line up outside the store at 5:45. No Black Friday electronic bargains..... but the release of a once-a-year limited edition Goose Island Beer. First I knew was when we opened at 7am and hordes hurtled through the store. all gone 30 minutes later, and apparently we had the biggest allocation in the area. I was working in the beer area a bit today and all day shifty looking guys sidled in: "psst ....got any of that...." Nutters.

  • I deserve "normal" reflexes, especially for driving.
  • I deserve to be able to work for a living (at a job I actually like).
  • I deserve my metabolism back.
  • I deserve to be able to talk at a normal speed.

In short, I deserve to be normal (via a non-surgical, single treatment "cure" for Cerebral Palsy, such as an injection of stem cells directly into my cerebellum, theoretically causing motor cell re-generation).
