She's still beautiful. Heh, but I've seen you too... and you for damn sure aren't ugly. :-P

You make a good 50's housewife. ;)

I should be ashamed of myself.

Man, dude...I know that isn't directed at me...but it's still ignorant. You just loooove to push people's buttons and then say "oh, I was just joking." I could say so much more, but I won't. So rate that. I can't believe I even started this thread. I should have just shared my thoughts with the people in flesh in blood that I've met in real life, who don't like to say stuff that makes no sense in response, and sling subtle sexist insults.

Remind me again, why I don't come here very often?

My mind is made up...not like my bed, which is a mess.

Excuse me?

Perhaps it'd be better off if you had seen the picture. She showed me in one of her holloween costumes, dressed as a 50's housewife. And she does make a good 50's housewife...

Perhaps mel could show you?

The reason you don't come here very often is because everybody got tired of you overreacting ages ago.

I should be ashamed of myself.

There's obviously been a mix-up in communication here, so maybe y'all need to have a quick break, take a few mindful breaths, and remember the Magnifico-Mantra; "It's just the internet." A man much wiser than me once said "Abuse, if you slight it, will gradually die away." So tacite, infantis.

As for those who manage to look so healthy and beautiful even after that dreaded three-oh, I say kudos to those who manage on their own but I have no doubt that at least a few on your list were aided by modern medical science, Rosy. Seems almost like cheating, doesn't it? I don't know, I can't properly see myself as living so long as fifty, and I have trouble imagining how I will look at thirty. I'll probably have ditched this god-forsaken mohawk (though it is, arguably, the least-absurd looking thing I seem to be able to do with my hair), maybe even seen the first traces of facial hair. Or on the other hand, given the hand genetics dealt me for hair, probably not. But I sincerely doubt I'll have the elegant beauty of, say, Cameron Diaz once I've reached her age. Call it a hunch.

I'll believe in anything if you'll just believe in anything

The reason you don't come here very often is because everybody got tired of you overreacting ages ago.

Actually, the reason I don't come here very often is because this place is not very positive, and a lot of people on here like to extend subtle barbs, overreact themselves because they don't get their e-mails as fast as their antsy little minds want them answered, and because you all apparently didn't do your homework to have begun assuming that the stalking situation I endured was not real. There were a few people on here who actually took the time to look up his website that he set up for me against my will, and could confirm both his identity, and his scam. AND, not to mention some of the crummy and ridiculous advice I got from certain people about to handle that situation. Um. Yeah. That would be it.

But in reference to the above, you are sexist. You have been since I met you. And that's not an insult, it's just the truth. Just like reminding me how I had a lot of issues when I came here concerning being able to stand up for myself appropriately. I don't think the last post in your direction was terribly out of line. Simply a misunderstanding, on top of all the little subtle jabs you extended in reference to this post. Too bad you can't take someone calling you on your hang-ups, in reference to more than a misunderstood comment on "housewives". If you hadn't pushed my buttons before that, I don't think I would have responded. I somehow think you enjoy it. That can be the only reason I think that you personally invited me back here, and then, in essence, retracted it by saying that: everyone got tired of my overreacting.

If what you say is true, then I DON'T know why I am here. I'll just quietly walk away then.

But...........don't take any of what I just wrote seriously, because, to 'paraphrase' you: I WAS ONLY JOKING. :DDDDD

Or was I?

And you are excused.

Wish we could have heard your voice on this one, I can't comprehend your tone. Are you serious or playing? Who knows. I've been tripped up before by this, it's gotten me into a lot of trouble on a lot of occasions and it still happens. You can't judge somebody on this forum by the words that they write because you cannot infer the tone that they wrote them in. I could write total shit, play a game and you would think that I am exactly like that and could be somebody totally opposite in reality. Unless you know a person in reality I wouldn't try to judge somebody by some words they write on a web forum. Lots of people play games with online forums and try to be somebody they really aren't.

Do you know if I am a man or a women? Can you infer this by the writing that I've done? Is my profile correct? Am I lying? Do you really know? I could be making all this shit up. See nobody knows unless you have seen me in reality, so I make my point.

We (me included) spend a lot of time bitching about stupid shit and about what we think people are saying about our posts. The point is nobody really knows what is reality and what is fiction unless you actually know the person posting in *REAL* life.

Actually, the reason I don't come here very often is because this place is not very positive, and a lot of people on here like to extend subtle barbs

This is me, but I don't care about how fast my emails come in as you say. I am not positive, I am negative, it's my personality, it's in my nature and I cannot change that. That is real. I am a pessimist by nature and I bitch about a lot of dumb crap that in the end won't mean jack shit. Yet here I am...

I think I can safely stand up and say this post was written for me. I have posted my fair share of DUMB SHIT, DUMB COMMENTS, DUMB SHIT all the way around. Maybe it's a fucking character flaw, I dunno, I'm a damn nice person in reality. I boil it all down to the fact that inferring tone from a post is a 50/50 proposition and most of the time I get it totally wrong as I am sure others do as well.

And you are excused.

Thank you, I really appreciate this...

TONE, I love it and I misunderstand it in the written word...

Re: Excuse me?

You guys wanna play the rating war? Is that it?

Listen majic, if you had read the full thread you would know that this post was directed at Aynjell. He continually bombards me everytime I call him on his shit, with reminders of how overreactive I can be. He's not capable of simply saying I'm sorry that you didn't get my joke about calling you "old" by association, or underhanded jabs referring to my apparent obsession over my health. He just pokes and pokes and pokes, and even knows he's doing it...that's apparent when he inserts stuff that is designed to be antagonistic, and then says he is going to *duck*. Supposedly to avoid my ire.

If you know someone is sensitive, as Aynjell does about me......what other reason would there be to say stuff like that, unless you want to push someone's buttons, and see if they will respond, and then you can rate them down, and knock them off their perch, when said person, myself, doesn't really give a rat's ass about the NAO rating system. I don't know for sure, I could be wrong...just like he could be wrong about me. As well as wrong in assuming that everyone here is sick of my shit. Who knows. Who really cares.

I know who my friends are on here, and I know who aren't. MOST of the ones who are my friends I chat with on e-mail. And I like it that way. This place only brings grief and stress. You post something interesting....people don't read it. You post something controversial and somewhat retaliatory, and people just jump all over it, trying to rate it into oblivion to show the size of their balls, and then talk about how *this person*, namely me, is such a pain in the ass. Why do I need that, Majic, I ask you?

And finally, even though it should be evident that that post was not meant for you...I'll repeat it. I find you very annoying at times, as I'm sure you find me as well, but I'm not disgusted with you personally majic. I'm disgusted with the whole setup of this place AND two people in particular. It is pretty much with two people. Aynjell and harold_maude. Aynjell for his inability to stop making what he deems are innocent jabs, and harold_maude for the horrible post she wrote about me several months ago, because her e-mails to me didn't get answered as quickly as she'd like. The post she wrote you never got to be read by much of anyone here, so I don't think many people really knew what set me off. Null deleted it, hoping I wouldn't tell her to fuck off. But I did.

And it hurt. A lot. Because I am who I say I am. And she basically asked me if the post I wrote tongue-in-cheek from my mother's viewpoint, meant that I was really my mother. She sent two e-mails asking about that. I didn't get them right away, so she sent one more warning me that since I refused to respond, she would basically let it rip. And she did. She ripped me to shreds in her post. And I ripped her back. And I hated myself for it. I wasn't as kind as Hardballkid was when he got slammed by me, waaay back when the stalking thing was going on, because I thought he was one of the many aliases my stalker assumed. Hardballkid just quietly blew it off, and didn't take it very personal. He's a sweetheart.

I, however, ripped harold_maude right back. And neither one of us has ever apologized to each other. And it likely will never happen. It hurt too much. I don't think that fence is repairable. And it looks like the one with Aynjell isn't either. And honestly, I don't think I want them to be....I just want it done and over with.

Majic, I don't like to be pulled back down into the pot of crabs. Misery loves company, and I don't like that kind of company. I don't like the way people in general just "poke" at each other here, and worry so much about their ratings. I don't like the way a lot of people seem to be trying to scramble up the anthill of ratings, and then hypocritically say that they don't consider that shit important, or that this place can't be taken seriously. The seriousness with which most of you all take this place, belies those kinds of statements.

To be honest, I am sad that I even came back here to post, at Aynjell's behest, because it has become very clear, in a short period of time, that this place just brings out the worst in people too often. I like myself a whole lot better when I'm not here. And I don't get into these quibbles over who I was in the past with people offline anymore....only online, and only here.

It's like you guys (and here I am not referring specifically to you, majic...it's just a blanket referrence) just people up on a pedestal, and then like to chip away at them to prove that they were likely never really anything special anyway. I don't need it. I don't know what else to say...I feel like I am just spinning my wheels.

My mind is made up...not like my bed, which is a mess.

I did not read the full thread. I know the post *wasn't* for me but it had overtones in it that fit me perfectly because of the crap I usually do. I was making comparisons with the post and about what I've done in the past.

Re: Excuse me?

No worries mate. :) I've found your posts very interesting. We're probably all a bunch of hotheads at one time or another. On a lighter note, I know you've written some poetry...and I know it's a much easier way for me to healthily bring out my cynicism (I admit, reluctantly, that it is there....),I don't mind too much 'lurking' around here reading other people's stuff...I did it for quite some time without making a peep...I'd love to read some of your poetry.

And btw, smile for me, because I just got invited to place some of my poetry in an anthology here in St. Louis. I was floored! It's always nice to have things like that happen. From one poet to another...
