I hate when people Leap before they Look.

or to put it in more understandable words. people who dont look at what they are getting into or read the rules before they attempt to join something.

for example I run a group that requires all aplicants to state that they have read the rules and agree to abide by them. in the past 2 months I have had over 40 applications. and only 2 actually stated the information requested. *sigh*


and a close second:
People who THINK they are above the rules and can do whatever they want.

I really hate when I call somewhere (usually someone's office) and when they aren't there and I really don't want to leave a message, I hang up before their machine kicks on. But then, my phone rings and I am still connected to that number that I dialed (or punched in since you don't "dial" anymore) and I end up hearing their machine. Sometimes I get two or three ring-backs.  >:(

People who just totally abandon you after telling you five minutes previously that they're not going to abandon you.

People who beat me in Scrabble games! Arrgh. (Not that that's happened in a good long time!)

Ripp: Tomorrow at 9:00pm, bye! :)
Chat-4-eva: What room shall we chat in?
Ripp: You know Lounge-Time? Shall chat in there along with Murky_Missy, k?
Chat-4-eva: Murky_Missy? But she's really horrid to me, she always calls me a chatterbox. Does she have to?
Ripp: YES. I promised her she's nice to me, now BYE!
Chat-4-eva: No stay can't we invite Hell&Fath21 and 55_Pocket_Penny?
Chat-4-eva: Hello?
Chat-4-eva: /find = Ripp = codenumber = 3027
: Ripp codenumber 3027 is not logged on. Message left for Chat-4-eva: "Murky_Missy is correct on calling you a chatterbox! GET LOST!"
Chat-4-eva: /message = Ripp "You're an idiot"
Next day on Chat-Box

Ah, so I guess I'm not the only one who got that pesky message last night. I was getting ready to post in a topic, but after I hit the Post button, that message came up. I couldn't even log out it was so screwy. So I woke up at about 3:30 this morning to see if anything changed, still no such luck. Then I went back to bed. But this afternoon, everything seemed just fine.

We used to have this small weight/aerobic workout room at the office.  Anyway, a foreign guy started working out there with his girlfriend, and neither of them would ever wash their gym clothes.  They put on the same stinky stuff every day, and it was getting very RANK.  >:(

I mean it was so bad it was like being punched in the nose when they came into the room.  Made me wonder if someone could actually die from a bad smell.  ???

Well, I went upstairs to the laser printer and made this big sign that said "I am barely Breathing..." asking the (anonymous) persons who were stinking up the place to take a bath and wash their clothes.

That fixed it.  Nobody had to be "confronted" and the stink went away.  Everyone at work was wondering who posted those signs, but I never told.  ;D

Heck, hubby's cousin got married 4 years ago and we spent about $100 on a gift for the "happy couple" and never got squat!!!


I gave my cousin and her new husband $500 for their wedding.  Figured it would help them start out, especially since they have a 3-year old kid.  I know they got the dough because I have the cancelled check.

No thank you note.  No email.  No phone call.

I know; that's what happens when you sleep on it; your arm goes to sleep. See, doing that cuts off the blood circulation; hence, your arm's gonna feel funny. I try not to do that, but we all do sometimes; what can I say? ::)

Sometimes I do that too (put my arm under my pillow unintentionally and wake up to find it numb). I have to move it all around until it's fully "awake".

When you got o the dentist for a checkup and he finds a filling that needs replaced, them makes youset up a second appointment.

You then get the second appointment and it took like 3 minutes to drill and fill.  Why not just do it all at once??

I tried Simply White and it did nothing for me.  The only thing I know that works are the Crest Whitestrips.  Some of my friends have used them and they're teeth are whiter.  I haven't tried them yet myself.  I'm waiting until I get all my dental work done first.

I recommend the Crest Whitestrips. They work great! The only thing that bugs me is that they only cover your front teeth, but I remedy that by buying two packs and using them all the way around. ;D

If you want your teeth really white find a dentist that uses a product called, "Zoom".  It's a whitening system that last a lot longer than Crest Whitestrips and other bleaching agents & it's very affordable.  When you take the cost of the over the counter remedies & how often you need to use them, it's way more expensive to do it yourself.

I came home before the blackout even had started when I found out a street light wasn't even working.That night,My Mother and Father complained a lot. It was too hot to do nothing so I took a cold shower and went to bed.There was absolutely NOTHING to do.I was bored as hell. :(

Hey, I was just out your way on Wed & Friday.  Luckily, we missed the accident on 80/94 because we got off at Portage.  I hate rain.  We finally get a "family vacation" and it rains the entire time >:(


80s_cheerleader,

I used to live about a quarter-mile from the Portage exit.  8)

I tell you what, getting from South Bend to Chicago is getting to be hopeless anymore.  On Thursday near Cline Avenue, you could not get on 80/94.  So I took the 90 Toll Road and it was jammed up at Gary.  :-\\

Of course the Skyway was down to one friggin lane at the bridge, as part of the "always under construction" project there.  And last Sunday when I took 94 all the way into Chicago, it was all Jammed for 2 miles before Stoney Island.  >:(

Downtown weather on Thirsday was pretty good though.  :)

I'm gonna start taking the South Shore train into town.

A total heartbreaker, Bobo. We were ahead 1-0 for most of the game and in the last 3 minutes, Zidane scored a free kick and then, what was Gerard doing passing back to the goalkeeper? Unbelievable.

I think England were still celebrating their goal for the rest of the match, but that's just me. Becks shouldn't have missed that penalty. And I swear...during one of the French goals, it looked like the England goalkeep was getting out of the way of the ball!!!! Erm...you're supposed to block it, not avoid it!!!  >:(

I've seen England more sharper than that, Vile. We seemed to be complacent (despite defending well until the end). As for the goals, I'm not too sure James (the goalkeeper) could have done too much about them. Zidane's shoot from a free-kick was a very good one and the penalty, well, Zidane sent him the wrong way - I'm gonna keep saying this, what was Gerard doing passing back to the goalkeeper with French players hanging around the goalmouth?  :o

I'm sorry to hear that PoP.  Lupus is extremely hard to diagnose and is often overlooked.  Unfortunately, many are not diagnosed until what happened to your mother in law happens to them.  Is she on anything now, like prednisone or methotrexate?  I have been lucky that not too much damage was done the years that I went undiagnosed and untreated, and have been in remission for about 4 years now.  It's not easy to stay that way, I've had to give up alot of things I love,   :-\\ but hey, for my life it's worth it.

I'm glad to hear you are in remission. :)  She took Prednisone for a while & it made her really sick, so now she has turned to alternative medicine/healing practices which help her get through it.

There are alot of side effects both short and long term associated with Pred.  Tell her to ask her dr about Plaquinil.  It's milder than pred and has the least amount of side effects. I took pred for a short time and my system could not tolerate it.  Is the alternative medicine helping her?  I hope she starts to feel better soon.  You can live a full life with lupus, you just have to get on the right track and keep it under control.  There are alot of really good websites out there that give alot of information.  Some have messageboards very much like this one where fellow lupies give each other support and trade information.  Some of the people on those boards know more than the drs! They helped me tremendously when I was first diagnosed and for years after that.

Oh yes. Sometimes I may not even really need to talk to them, but I'll have a strong urge to want to talk to them. For example, earlier this week, as I was coming home on the train, there was this one young lady who I had met a month ago (actually that's when I started talking to her, but I had seen her around before then), and she was very busy studying; she had just started law school, I guess. Anyway, it was the first time I had seen her in about four weeks, but she really had to keep her mind focused on law-related stuff. So I respected that. We did talk, for about 60 seconds, though.
But still, anytime someone is really busy with something, I may feel disappointed about not being able to talk to them, but I respect their need for privacy.

Oh, I hate that.  Hubby just assumes that everything is clean and puts it away (on the rare occasion that he actually unloads the dishwasher ;)).  It's usually the kids' cereal bowls or anything that has had eggs on it that don't come clean.



Hubby USED to laugh because I had to wash the dishes before I wash the dishes. Lately, I have been having the cleaning lady do them. He empties the dishwasher without looking. He doesn't laugh about me washing the dishes before I wash the dishes-he just thinks that I shouldn't have the cleaning lady do it anymore-unfortunately, I agree with him.  :-\\

PCG:

Unless you absolutely have to use a travel agent, you should avoid them.  Travel agents generally want to book you on a flight that generates the maximum commission for THEM, not the cheapest fare for YOU.  >:(

And in many cases, "cheap" fares that you see on the Internet are only available on the Internet.  The airline can price them cheaper because they then do not have to pay a travel agent's commission.  ???

Then today, I recieve an e-mail from our pres saying that we need to order meat-A DUH! I'm on it. I e-mailed her back telling her that I have already ordered and even upped the order and told her SPECIFICALLY that I ordered 3 cases of hotdogs instead of the usual 2. She e-mails me back saying, "I hope there is hotdogs in that order." If she had READ what I wrote, she would know that!

My Dad was a lift operator in Pittsburgh in the 1930's in a 5-story building.

He said he was running the elevator when the cable snapped TWICE.  Back then there was a big spring at the bottom of the lift shaft.

The first time it happened he "stiffed up" and he said his knees hurt like heck.  The SECOND time, he flexed his knees.

Soon after he got a different job.  Did not want to try for three!

Cat,

I can tell you that when an employee threatens to quit, the VAST MAJORITY of managers will simply sit back and call the employee's bluff.

If it gets to the point of a worker threatening to quit, things are so out of hand that the manager often will see that as a valid way to clear the controversy/issue.  Or, they simply take it as a personal affront and say to themselves "Yeah, go ahead and quit!  He/she won't have the 'nads to do it!"

I've had 5 employees threaten to quit over the period of 24 years, and none of them ever went through with it.  And I never reacted to their threats.  It's bad policy.  If an issue has festered for that long, a manager who has been acting in good faith has already made a decision based on what he/she thinks is best for the company.  To change that decision to keep a threatening employee from quitting would be to put the cart before the horse.  And if the manager has been acting in "bad faith" all along, he won't care about the threat anyway.  Either way, the threat is of little use.

Above is my $0.02 on threats to quit.  Never seen it work in my lifetime.

Good going Cat.  This is especially true since it was a Volunteer position.  There are lots of opportunities to volunteer, places where even an hour is precious and every effort is appreciated.  I for one have never threatened to quit a job, if it got that bad I went.  I might add that I have only quit  without notice twice in my life, but with, what I still believe all these years later, were just reasons.  The hair you have been tearing out will grow back in.  Hey, it's summertime,  a lit bit of moondancing will get you back on the rails. ::)',(' ;D', );

When I was growing up my town was so poor that nothing came in boxes.  If we wanted to read we had to hitchhike to the next town and read the billboards.  :P

Good going Cat.  This is especially true since it was a Volunteer position.  There are lots of opportunities to volunteer, places where even an hour is precious and every effort is appreciated.  I for one have never threatened to quit a job, if it got that bad I went.  I might add that I have only quit  without notice twice in my life, but with, what I still believe all these years later, were just reasons.  The hair you have been tearing out will grow back in.  Hey, it's summertime,  a lit bit of moondancing will get you back on the rails. ::)',(' ;D', );




Thanks, Danoota. It has only been two days now and already I have felt my stress level drop conciderably. I have my resignation from the Board of Directors sitting on the table-waiting to be sent out. (Hubby just went to the p.o. to pick up stamps). I do feel a little bad because I really do believe in the work and I like to think that I made a difference but I KNOW this was definately the right decision.

This really p!sses me off. We live next door to a church. When my husband moved into this house in 1986, the church put up a fence that is not on the property line. He was told by the church to do what he liked with that small section of the property-so he did. He has been maintaining it-i.e. mowing it. We planted on it-including a beautiful pine tree and I just planted wildflowers. Now, the church informs us that they are going to tear down the old fence and put up a new one-on the property line! Which means that we will lose our pine tree and all the wildflowers that haven't even come up yet.  >:( >:(

Well, my husband is no dummy so as soon as they left, he called a lawyer friend of his. It seems like we may have a claim to the property rights of that section. We are going to file a claim under "abandon property". We were told by the lawyer that it is 15 years of maintaining the property that it is concidered abandoned. Well, since 1986-that is more than 15 years. So, hopefully, the property that we own will be expanded. Keep your fingers crossed.

Unfortunately, unless your husband can show some sort of documentation of the "1986 ageement" (or if your locality has some specific ordinance that addresses this issue), you will be S.O.L.

The "fence is inside the property line" issue has been done to death in the courts and the property holder of record always wins in the absence of some recorded agreement.

Why not ask the attorney to waive (or reduce) his fees if you lose the case?  That way you do not have to be victimized a second time.

Possession is 9/10 of the law and it has been in our possession for the last 18 years (the law calls for 15 years). The church has been well aware of that and didn't object. And we have been maintaining it. The church basically forgot about that plot for the last 18 years. If we didn't maintain it, it would have been a jungle.

Cat,

Be sure to post the outcome of any legal action here.  I'll be very interested to see how it turns out, and the basis of law that is applied.  Here are some random thoughts/questions in no particular order: (I'm not looking for you to answer them.  I just wrote 'em down so you can see where I'm coming from).  8)

1.  Do you intend to have the plots re-surveyed so that the land is now officially yours by all public property records?  If so, will your plot be reassessed and thus taxed at a higher rate?  Will you then have to pay 15 years worth of back taxes on the plot?

2.  What condition was the plot in before the "agreement"?  Was it in disrepair?  How does your locality define "abandoned"?

3.  What "consideration" did the church receive in return for "giving" the land to hubby?  Typically a transaction without consideration is considered invalid and generally unenforceable.

If the "15 year rule" is as you say, I am going to move to your state and start annexing abandoned rural lands like there is no tomorrow.  :P

An injunction is a legal thing (at least in Britain) where a person is legally bound to stay away from another person. If s/he comes within a certain radius, penalties occur. It protects against stalkers and often comes into effect when bitter divorces occurs and one still wants to see the other despite the other persons wishes not to.

You wouldn't believe the hassle I got. I admitted to him it was me that made the complaint because I believe he had suspicions it was the person sitting next to him. I reasoned with him, saying I was getting headaches and feeling nauseous because of his stale smell and that part of why he smelt so bad was because he wore the same shirt all week. He admitted that could be the cause and so I thought everything was fine . . .

He changed his ways and then, all of a sudden, my manager asked to have a word with me and now the bloke thinks I had a personal vendetta against him because I was the only person that complained (what could anyone say to him directly? 'Hey lad, you smell'?). Anyway, after my manager talked with me, I thought I would 'try to clear the air' (no pun intended) with this person. In contrast with the day before, he went absolutely mad. He said don't you realise the humiliation you have caused me? I said, that he had to be told and now that he had changed his clothes and didn't smell that bad, I had no problem with him - not good enough. He tried to reason with me that he had wore a shirt for five days, didn't wash it for a week, smelt it and still thought it didn't stink. I told him that he had no sense of smell. Now he thinks 'I'm pedantic and bloody minded'.

I used to work at a place that also had an employee fitness room.  Anyway, we had this one foreigner and his girlfriend who used the facility.  This guy never (I mean NEVER) came in with clean gym clothes and he stunk unbelieveably bad.  I mean, when he walked into the room it was like taking a punch to the lungs.  I wonder if you could actually die from a bad smell? ???  His girlfriend did not seem to mind it a bit, but the rest of us had a hard time breathing.  :-\\

So I made up a laser-printed sign that said "I am Barely Breathing" (that song was popular at the time) and posted it on every door leading into and out of the facility, asking that the unnamed human Stink Bomb get a bath and wash his clothes.  :-X

He got the message, and everybody else got a good laugh.  Nobody knew it was me who posted the sign, although some had their suspicions.  Heh heh...  ;D

Absolutely, RockandRollFan. I go for the honest approach, maybe not the most tactful because I want this person to get the message. My view is that it will hurt for a day or two but, providing he is not a selfish imbecile, will see sense, correct his ways and job done. The bloke has been complained about twice already! You would have thought he'd evaluate his clothes-washing schedule by now.

We had this one kid when I was going to college.  He always wore this nylon goose down coat.  By "always" I mean ALWAYS.  Like even when it was 72 degrees outside, he was wearing that friggin' jacket.  Man did he stink.  In fact, "stink" does not even come close.  I think the odor coming from that jacket activated a sixth sense in us, because our olfactory was completely overloaded.  :P

One day apparently that coat got too hot for him, and he finally took it off in our classroom, exposing not only the usual outer surface area of the jacket, but also its inner surface area and, of course, the outer surface of HIM.  Triple the putridity.  :o 

A buddy and I kept sliding our desks away from this guy (and the overwhelming smell) until we were actually out of the classroom!  :P  The professor saw what we were doing, but we could tell by the way he looked at us that he understood.  ;D

Okay. Here's a problem. This is one of the things I'm not fond of.

Quite a few of the libraries in town have three computers. These are infrequently used, but you only pay sixty pence every hour that you want to use them. That's not a steep charge, so I'm fine with that. I might pay £1.20 if I wish to use them for two hours.

The problem being, that in one of the libraries, these are always being used by kids between the ages of 6 and 10. My beef is with the fact that while they pay for one hour's usage, they actually do nothing while on the computers, and I could, and need, to use them for other things at certain times. I'm sure others do too.

I don't know. I shouldn't complain. They're good computers, so why not..

That's illegal here. I know dogs have to be kept on leashes when they're out, and they have to be licensed. Not sure if cats have to be licensed as well, but it's the law to have them fixed.

By the way, even though some people are known to keep skunks as pets, I highly doubt the skunk in question belonged to anyone. If he did, my heart goes out to the owner.

I used to live in a town that there was this dog who would run out into the street when a car came by and tried to bite the tires. I slammed on my breaks many times to avoid hitting the dog. After driving past that house many times, I was well aware of the dog being there. I would see him standing in the yard, staring at me as I came up the street-then he would run out in the road. I said that if I did hit that dog, I wouldn't have any remorse because apparently, the owners were well aware that their dog did this-and the dog was indeed hit before. Well, I never did hit the dog but it was a really good thing that it wasn't a busy street because I'm sure I would have caused an accident by slamming on the breaks. I really wish that pet owners would be more responsible.

You know, when I was a kid, there was a dead skunk in the small slough twixt our house and our neighbors.  One day we all gathered round as our neighbor got his shovel and scooped the darn thing out of the water.  When he did the smell was absoutley "otherworldly."  Ever since then skunk smell doesn't bother me in the least.  I believe I was around 5 yrs old.  Nope couldn't care less if a skunk sprayed right outside my door.  BTW  In my neck of the woods, the frogs are "running" to get to the lakes to hibernate.  When this migration occurs, the amount of skunks laying dead on the road is staggering.  The "coons are everywhere too.

I hate it when people cage animals... Like in Zoos.  I also hate it when people keep pets like iguanas and snakes.  Wild animals should remain in the wild, they are a lot happier, I know I was in my wild animal days ;D ;D ;)

I agree. My mother's cousin has a couple of iguanas for pets; I don't know how anyone could have wild animals for pets. ::) ::)

Being the nice guy that I am, I said, hello, how are you, but then she said, "I don't wanna talk to you now, go away," and then that's when I got shoved; her left hand pushed me right in the chest above my heart. Fortunately I didn't fall down, but I was hurt (emotionally). This young lady (who may be about my age or perhaps younger than me; I'm not a very good judge of age) has a history of being nice, though. I did manage to end things on a positive note by opening the door for her as she walked out of the room.
I understand that people need their space at times; I may have just gotten too close.

I guess so. It could also be that maybe she was stressed over midterms. Or maybe she was just in a bad mood altogether. :-\\ I'll try to put that behind me now and try to have a good day today.

I came very close to walking out of Pizza Hut the other week.  We wait 40+ minutes for them to take our order.  Another family gave up waiting and went somewhere else.  I was on my own with the children (age 5 and 2) and no serving staff came near the table so I could grab them.  In the end I had to leave my kids at the table and go up to the 'wait to be seated' area to get someone's attention.  >:(

That's a real bummer, Howard. And, as unhelpful as it is for me to say this, your situation sounds like one I can really relate to, as when I was younger I was good friends with a chick with spina bifida cystica, and for a while we were very much with each other in the same sense.

Having talked to a lot of people with disabilities, the one thing you can really tell with them is the fact that they have an admirable sense of life and fun, and some of these people very much inspire you to change your views on these things.

All I can really say is that since you've been with Robin, you've probably felt a lot more lifted than you have for a long time. And above all else, the sense of satisfaction you get from being with someone, whether or not they have problems, what you get back from them is worth ten times more than what couples usually get from each other.

Hang on in there, Howard. You know how rewarding this is going to be for you.

A cynical outlook on life happens to everyone to some degree, Vile (I used to withdraw away from people because of it) but you come across as mentally and emotionally strong and therefore people who might have thought about taking pity on you realise that the notion is wasted.

I have mentioned previously in another post on the boards that I used to go to a handicap playgroup and that knocked out any kind of bigotry I would have had for disabled people (in any form). I think it was one of the best things my mum ever taught me.  :)

What is "normal" anyway? Are only people who can stand up and walk "normal?" Are only girls with 36-24-36 measurements "normal?" I don't know why some people would not call someone like me "normal" (until they get to know me and realise I'm completely mad :D). No, but seriously...I'm just as "normal" as anyone else! And so is anyone else who would be deemed "different" in the eyes of the masses. Until I find out what "normal" really is...nothing's "normal."

And yeah, it's not the people with the defects you need to worry about...it's those ignorant people who can't see past the end of their noses. Those shallow people who think that one should only be with those who can walk erect and have no imperfections whatsoever. That's bullsh*t.

Well, I'm just one big cynic. :) Most people would call me a pessimist! No, I'm a realist! And me? Emotionally and mentally strong? Me? Well, I suppose I can be. I have been lately, I think. (Rush may or may not agree with me.) I certainly haven't sunk into any deep depressions lately.

I didn't know that! Good on your mum for doing that! :) I was always integrated into regular schools. My parents saw to it that I was, regardless of what the "powers that be" said (i.e. the school district). Didn't always get the kids to be more "conscious" of people who are different. I made a lot of enemies as I grew up into a teenager. When I was a youngster, I was more of a "curiosity" more than anything, so of course I had loads of friends.

I have read somewhere that cynical people are more idealistic than idealistic people. It's just that cynicism is a way of protecting themselves against the harsh realities of disillusionment - a defence mechanism. Being cynical/realistic is only negative when it becomes chronic.

It is good (at least in intention) that your parents tried to integrate you into regular schools.

My education, dear Bobby, comes from life! Oh yes, I went to school, but I wasn't very good at it, especially later on.

Everone has defects, Howard.  Some just have outward ones other are inward.  There is no such thing as the "perfect" person.  I think you need to lose the friend...obviously his idea of how things work didn't help him any.  You are doing the right thing in dating a girl you like.  Just treat her right and things should go ok.

In the end I had to leave my kids at the table and go up to the 'wait to be seated' area to get someone's attention. >:(


While we're on the subject...I HIW the servers/waiters/etc. just flat out ignore you in the restaurant. One time a few years back, we went to a Marie Callenders where we got seated, but never got served. I'm serious; the waiter walked right past our table, acting as if we weren't even there. We couldn't even place our order. So we complained to the management: "This is the first time we've been here, and it's going to be the last." And we stormed out. >:(

I was reading your last sentence, Vile and (perhaps the only time I will tread on eggshells around you) is what you have said the full extent of your dissability or are you talking about the different examples of how kids may see a disabled person (and forgive me if you have mentioned this before)?

My education, dear Bobby, comes from life! Oh yes, I went to school, but I wasn't very good at it, especially later on. I was good with some things, especially French, but I hated to study...and especially hated to dissect books and poems in English class! (I also didn't like science, speaking of dissecting things.) :P

Oh yes - The School of hard knocks! Unfortunately the lessons you learn there are far more tougher!  I had a love/hate relationship with English Literature. I loved the hidden meanings/sentiments and techniques used in books (did quite well - B (second to top) in exams) but I often wondered whether the meanings were really the intention of the author or whether the teacher was just making it up as (s)he goes along. Besides, reading anything from Thomas Hardy didn't help - overated in my opinion.

I had a love/hate relationship with English Literature.


I love reading but hated English Literature at school because of all the endless analysis of the characters we had to do.  And all the dumb coursework.  We read "Of Mice and Men" and had to write a parody of an apparently well-known song (which only two people in the class knew) to tell the story of the main characters.  When we read "Under Milk Wood" we had to draw a map of the village working out where people lived based on the description in the book on also write the front page of a fictional newspaper the 'Llareggub Times'.  What completely pointless exercises in my opinion.

I never submitted sufficient coursework to even get into the C.S.E. group so I haven't any English Lit qualifications.

Lol. Oh dear. I understand the dumb excercises you have to do in English lit. I read 'Lord of the Flies' (completely mediocre read from William Golding IMO) and we had to design the island based on the book - oh the fun we had!  ;D

'Under Milk Wood' by Dylan Thomas? Never read it personally but I heard it is very surreal.

Subject: Re: Don't you hate it when...

I read a bit of 'Lord of the Flies' and saw the film as part of Sociology, as a study of democracy versus dictatorship.  We also read 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell as part of the same stuff.

I guess this sort of sounds like I'm contradicting myself here.  I don't mind reading a book and discussing the main themes and things.  I just couldn't stand comparing and contrasting characters form two completely unrelated works, which is often what you had to do in Eng Lit.

When I am composing I click off to the side then click back in and that keeps me
from getting timed out, sometimes doing a spellcheck does the same thing.;)

I live outside in the Boston(Massachusetts) area so we are just simmering in American
Literary History.  I am lucky enough that in school we went on field trips to places noteworthy
in that regards(House of Seven Gables,  The Old Manse).  I found that when introduced to
tangible places associated with author or subject had a profound effect in the interest, even
to the kids who didn't particularly like reading. I have morphed that into visiting the graves of
authors buried in this area.  Kinda weird, but cemeteries are really just big quiet gardens,
I have tried to read Thomas Hardy, I keep hearing that he is THE English writer to read.  What
do you guys think, and who would you suggest as your favorite British authors?

Subject: Re: Don't you hate it when...

Danoota (or I suppose it should really be Me?)

I don't recall ever reading any Thomas Hardy.  I find a lot of the 'must read' classics very heavy going simply because of the language used in them.  It's so different from the way we speak today.  I've tried reading some Jane Austen and Charles Dickens recently but struggled to finish them.

I don't really know your tastes but would recommend George Orwell (1984 and Animal Farm are good, Down and Out in London and Paris is o.k.  A friend of mine reckons that's his best work)

More modern writers I would recommend include Douglas Adams (both his Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series and Dirk Gently books) and Terry Pratchett's Discworld stuff.  Personally I think their styles are quite similar.  Certainly most people that like one, like the other.

Other than this stuff I like P.G. Wodehouse's 'Jeeves' stuff, Agatha Christie and Ellis Peters' 'Brother Cadfael'.

You are the first on who got it that I am the "me", though I don't mind being called  Danoota.  I
am happy to hear that It is not just me with the problems with Hardy.  I love "A Christmas Carol"
by Dickens, but can't plod my way through the others.  I have read your other recommendations
and can see we like much of the same thing, I haven't read Terry Pratchett, but have heard of
him and will put him on my list for the next trip to the library(probably later today).  I do like Pat
Barker,  and (going over to Ireland) Roddy Doyle. English mysteries seem to be superior to
a lot of the stuff over here, over here they tend to rely too much on long graphic gory murder
and/or sex scenes, freudian field day on that.

That was the first Dickens book I read.  I appeared in a version of it at school when I was 9 or 10 and that lead me to read the book.

Some slightly older stuff which is quite readable is Rudyard Kipling, though you have to remember the time that these stories are written in that they can sound racist.  I realise this might be a problem to you.  I'm not defending rascism (or any other form of discrimination) I'm just saying that sometimes things need to be considered in the light of history (if that makes sense).

I do tend to cringe and get on with it.  It is not always easy to separate the fool from the genius,
but I try to keep an open mind.  I have never read Kipling although I do know a bit about him,
he actually lived in Vermont for a time, that is where Cat and Carlos are, not to far from Boston.
(couple of hours).  He wrote The Jungle Book and Just So Stories there before returning to England
after the death of his young daughter.

I hate to read Thomas Hardy's stuff, Danoota because I think he is a long-winded bore of an author (the kind that goes through six pages to describe a tree). He loves his female heroines if I remember correctly.

I, like Karen (sorry to hear you timed out under inspiration  ;)), recommend George Orwell who uses a very simple way of writing and can recommend Charles Dicken's 'Great Expectations'. You certainly wouldn't want to read Chaucer's stuff (worse to understand than Shakespeare - and he's bad enough!).

You got that right Cheerleader.

Over here next door in Indiana, we have a fairly sick governor's election going on.  The incumbent (Joe Kernan) has come out with ads saying that the challenger (Mitch Daniels) is unfit to be Guv because he used to be the CEO of one of those evil drug companies, Eli Lilly.

Daniels came back with ads that said "I have never heard of an Indiana Governor degrading Eli Lilly Company, or people who work there.  Lilly is the state's largest employer and funds the state's largest charitable foundation".

I have to give Daniels some credit.  Throughout his campaign (even now) he has vowed against mud slinging, and early on in his campaign he even said "My opponent is a good man.  But we need new ideas".

What Kernan was trying to do is to appeal to "class warfare" and say "Don't vote for Daniels because he used to be a big boss."

DYHIW politicians only complain about the others running against them instead of saying what they would do.

We have a County Mayoral race here that would make the President and Senator Kerry look like drinking buds.  Our Mayor was charged with a felony..she took money from the health department to pay for an employee at The Boys and Girls Club to help her daughter.  Not that helping BGC is a bad thing, but the way she did it was wrong and illegal.  Well, she just dropped out of the race (with 3 weeks to go).  The R's backed a write in candidate and tried to get him on the ballot in her place.  The D's freaked out and sued when it happened.  The judge agreed but the Utah Supreme Court overruled that and he is officially on the ballot (with 3 days to go).

The two main candidates are trying hard to distance themselves from all this.  The R (write in) would have rather stayed a write in because it makes him look petty, even though it wasn't him trying to get on the ballot.  The D didn't want his party to sue.  He didn't want it to reflect on him (Our local Dem party chair is a very petty person.  I know it has to be hard to be a Dem in Utah, but he needs to rethink his attitude.  It is basically all R's are evil and should be banished)

Now the Dems are sending out mailings with all the current county officials pics with red x's and all the reasons we shouldn't vote for them.  It is all negative and I am getting sick of it.  (I will still vote for the D for mayor, he has been in the race for a year and I know where he stands.  The other guy just popped up a couple of months ago and I have yet to hear what he stans for)

Whew...glad that is off my chest.

Dagwood, I think that it is SHAMEFUL when any political party files a lawsuit to keep an other party from getting somebody on the ballot.

This year, it appears that the Democratic Party has had a problem with who its competing parties want to put on the ballot.  In my opinion, this is a very UN-American activity.  Let the parties place as their candidates whoever they want to, subject to the rules of the party that is doing the nominating.  Then *astoundingly* let the voters determine who the "right" candidate is, by their votes!

The Democratic Party efforts to keep Nader off state ballots was a disgrace and, in most cases, unsuccessful anyway.  Mind you, efforts by republicans to get Nader nominated, etc... were not very nice either, but at least they relied on voters making the ultimate choice anyway.

The above is not an anti-Democrat rant.  I've seen similar stuff by the Repubs in the past, but this year the Dems have decided that they and they alone should decide who is "worthy" to run for office.

I totally agree with you.  It is shameful.  We had the same problem in a different race in the 80's.  The parties were reversed.  The Dem candidate got a DUI a week before the election so they tried to put someone new on the ballot and the Repubs just let it happen.  I think the main problem here is the head of the Utah Dem party.  He takes offense at anyone believing differently than he does.  He almost takes it personal.  It kills me because the Dem candidate had a better chance of winning.  I hope this doesn't ruin that chance.

Well, if the Repubs just stood still in the example you cited, that's OK by me.  It was a Democratic Party problem.  The Repubs should stay out of it.

Now, if I were a Democrat in that district, I probably would NOT have liked my party's candidate, who won a primary nominating election, to be replaced unless he RESIGNED THE NOMINATION or was COVICTED of a felony.  If he resigned or was convicted of a felony (making him ineligible for office, I think), OK.  But if he didn't, me and my fellow Democratic party members already voted for him as our nominee.

This case happened over 20 years ago, but I believe he resigned the nomination.

The one this year that the Dems sued over, the mayoral candidate dropped out of the race when she figured out she couldn't win because no one trusted her to handle the county money anymore so they probably wouldn't vote for her.  This happened two weeks after the Repubs quit backing her and moved to the write-in that is now on the ballot.  Confusing stuff and I will be glad when Wednesday comes.  They are saying this may delay our election results because alot of the early voters have voted on three different ballots: the one with the original candidate, the one without her and the one with the write in on the ballot.

Here is what happened/is happening. We had planned to go to my mother's for Thanksgiving (mainly because we really owe her a visit). One of my step-daughter's is planning to come with us. Another step-daughter was also invited to this family gathering but needs to stick around because her soon-to-be-enstranged husband is having Thanksgiving with his family and is bringing the baby with him (the reason why she has to be close by is because she is breast feeding-and believe it or not, IS NOT INVITED, which, in my opinion is very rude). So, she was planning on staying here (close to her soon-to-ex-in-laws) but would be all alone.

So, we decided that we would move our Thanksgiving dinner from my mother's to here-we talked it over with her last night and even though I do think she is a bit disappointed that we are not going there, she does understand (and this just may allow her to see the baby which she is excited about).

Today, we recieve an e-mail from my step-daughter saying that she was invited to a friend's house for Thanksgiving and will be spending the night over there-instead of here and won't be alone after all. She was not aware that we were making different plans because of her.

So, today we are waiting to hear from her (called and left a message) to find out if we are going with Plan A or Plan B. I really hate when that happens.  :-\\

My mother-even though she is a bit disappointed, will be happy to see the baby. We are also going to have two extra people-my mother's "entrerage"  ;). They are a couple of friends of hers but they are very nice people and were also guests at our wedding. So, it should be a very nice day.

It is interesting when people south of you get snow and you don't. My mother called yesterday to ask if we got snow-none here but we did get a dusting earlier in the week.

I have transferred my negative topic from the 'Don't you just love' category. I just feel the need to talk . . .

A couple of weeks back, my mother phoned me up to ask if she could come around to my house which I said fine and she got talking about me and my girlfriend's upcoming wedding (which was also fine). Because I hadn't given a date for a wedding and mentioned that finances were the reason, she gave me this lecture that I just got engaged to my girlfriend to shut her up for the meantime and that now I have got myself into something I can't get out of. I believe it was her attempt at humour but . . . Well, I was quite upset at such a hurtful, incorrect analysis.

Last night after I came from work, my girlfriend was not in the best of moods. She received a phone call from her mother attempting to take control of marital decisions because my girlfriend said 'we have to save up'. She even suggested a registry office wedding (something I never thought I would hear from her) and compared our engagement to her cousins who is going to get married in 18 months time - it seems we ought to be following the same schedule!

I was angry last night and said 'we both have a plan, why have it ruined by the people who have no idea of what is going on?' My girlfriend whole-heartedly agreed but was obviously distressed. I don't react very well to neurotic intrusion at the best of times.

This might not seem a big deal but it has wound me up a little. Thanks for reading.  :)

Has anyone seen any houses decorated yet?  I reckon the first lights might go up locally this coming weekend.

back to the topic

dyhiw you washed something with a tissue in the pocket and everything is covered in little white bits.  This has happened 3 times in the past week.  Everytime its been a childrens clothes wash so I need to remember to check their pockets now.  I also washed a badge pinned to my daughters school cardigan!

Oh, and if it's out of order and you're hungry, I hope you like pizza or want to go to a "full service" restaurant because that's the ONLY way to get to the food court.

Whenever she needs to do business now, she lets us know by jumping around and running to the back door. She hasn't left a "present" since July 16, 2003, and it was just a small puddle.

Many moons ago, I used to carry my camera around with me and got LOTS of blackmail pics of people. One time I got this guy mooning. When people saw that pic they asked, "Who's that?" I said, "I can't tell you." But then they would say, "Oh I know who that is." And they did.  ???

I certainly HIW there's an accident on the railroad tracks on the way home, especially one that forces everyone off at a certain station and having to be bussed (transported by bus) through an excrucaiting traffic jam. And as a result, I was an hour late getting home. >:( That's what I experienced coming home today. But that's not all. Since the accident was on the track, they had to shut down a portion of a road that runs alongside the tracks, forcing all westbound traffic onto the other arterials, creating severe backups. So it was 6:50 when we finally got home this evening (instead of 5:55), and it was about 7:00 when we finally ate dinner. (Fortunately my mom had had the dinner all prepared and ready to eat, so we didn't have to wait so long for that.)

It's just that we all have expectations out of other people as well as ourselves.  All the whining, nagging, bitching and moaning that goes on in a relationship stems from one of us not meeting up to the others expectations.  If you should find from the get-go that you have different expectations of each other, yourselves and what you each want out of a relationship; run, don't walk as fast as you can in the opposite direction.

Well today I lost my math textbook. I had the class at 10:00 this morning; I had taken it out of my bag to do "group work" with a partner; I didn't notice it was gone until about 2:30. At that time I went to the math department office, wondering if it had been turned in there, but no such luck. I then went back to the classroom, only to find nothing there, either. Later on, I called the "lost and found" department from my cell phone; I described my book to the person on the phone, who said that no one had turned it in there. Hopefully, my partner who I did group work with, in class today, noticed that I walked out of the room without it and is holding on to it right now, and will return it to me next Monday. (I hope that's the case.) :-[ I can't count on it, but I hope it turns up somewhere.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, crazymom. :) Sometimes when I feel the pressure coming on, I take something before it can escalate to pain. But I can't usually do that unless I'm at home. :-\\

   Don't you hate it when you're trying to sleep and you hear that high-pitched whistling sound coming from your nose every time you inhale..?

   I hate it when that happens...
I whistle show tunes when this happens, try this...pull your eyelid away from your eye, do you hear that little pop sound?
I wonder if a few thousand people got together and did this in unison would the "POP" be audible?  ???

I have often wondered that.

Another cool thing to do, if you can do it, is to scrunch your eye up real tight, then kind of push youe ey up useing your eye muscles, it will trap your upper eyelid behind the skin and top of the socket, and then when you blink it makes a ever so slightly audible (to the person next to you) 'slap'

I understand how you feel Howard... but do try to make time for your friends.. don't just push them back because you have a girlfriend..  I have seen many people fall in love and forget all about their friends... then when things didn't work out in the relationship, they regretted it..

I'm not saying you are blowing off your friends, because you're probably not... but try not to get too mad, I'm sure they only want to spend time with you because that's what they were used to, and they care about you and enjoy your company...
