He's keeps saying "fair and balanced" blah blah blah. neither side is fair nor balanced. how about you turn off the TV and stop giving in to their attempts to terrify and brainwash you. /rant.

Sorry. i did this. reasoning...an ex-best friend...i mean sister almost...was having mental troubles. she didn't tell me, and when i found out and tried to help her through them, she said she needed support from friends and family. when i asked if i could come over, she said no and that she'll let me know when she was ready. i couldn't bear to look at her facebook anymore. certain pangs of jealousy because she has a beautiful baby. very selfish of me in the end, but i couldn't bear it anymore. but yeah. sometimes the reasons aren't valid. sometimes they are. in the end, what did people do before facebook? probably just didn't talk for a month. think of this as the same thing? sorry to go off on a personal tangent. i try not to do that when addressing other people's problems, but i find that being able to connect and stuff sometimes helps both people? *shrug* Well, your situation is different than mine...but what we might have done before FB is wrong as well. I wouldn't just "not talk to someone" for a month! That's crazy. When I have a problem with someone, I let them know. It only makes sense to me; if you want someone to stop doing something that you don't like, tell them, so they know to stop doing it. I don't know why this guy suddenly removed me. It was the guy that I was going crazy over around Halloween last year - he has a girlfriend and all that, but I left him alone and he removed me IMMEDIATELY after I changed my Relationship Status to "In a Relationship"!!! I don't understand this...it's not like he could be jealous, he has a girlfriend...and a CHILD with this girl. He didn't remove me from any other pages (and he's a "friend" on my personal Myspace and my music Myspace - as well as a Fan on my music Facebook page). I'm guessing he's trying to get some kind of rise out of me. It's working, but I am not going to let him know that! are you sure it wasn't just a technological issue? i agree that it isn't the best way to deal with something like that. he probably is just trying to get you to crawl back to him. jerkface. quote: Originally posted by Crispy Crispy Benjamin Franklin: quote: Originally posted by PilingAndTwisting: quote: Originally posted by SugarDrive: quote: Originally posted by PilingAndTwisting: I hate it how some people choose to "communicate" their problems with you by UNFRIENDing you on Facebook!

I'm guessing he's trying to get some kind of rise out of me. It's working, but I am not going to let him know that! Some guys are weird like that. They look at girls as if they are prospective girlfriends even when they're in a relationship. It's as if they've seen so many depictions of men that are assholes in movies and the media that they think that's how men are supposed to act and communicate their emotions. There are so many problems with the way we're raised as boys in this society... Also, Sugardrive, I at least know a little how you feel. One of my best friends is going through a really bad anxiety issue right now. One time after he smoked a little weed he flipped out and thought he was going to die, so we had to call the ambulance. And he hasn't been the same since. Now he won't even talk to me because he's afraid of re-triggering those anxieties. So I haven't talked to or seen him in person for more than 6 months... And it makes me really sad all the time. makes me sad too. i think that's partially why i just gave up on our friendship too...i couldn't take seeing her hurting herself (because she was). losing a good friend is a horrible feeling...it's like you aren't complete for a time. don't know how long that time is either.

It be warm down heeya! well, ya know, i didn't have much choice where my parents moved me. they settled in upper wisconsin, and when i graduated high school, i wanted to move as far as i could away from them. leading me to kenosha. was there 2 years, dropped out, move in with my aunt in milwaukee, then on my own. there you have it. i don't mind it so much here. racial tension is lame...i mean...we're so beyond that, right? it's an alright city. mostly i'm staying here b/c of my career. great job, great company. god i'm wordy today. sorry about that. where do you live, anyway?

    can i just say that i made, quite possibly, the most amazing swiss meringue buttercream that i have ever had the joy of eating. i can't take the credit for the recipe, but i will say this. Stop using measuring cups and start using a kitchen scale. your results will be, guaranteed, better. coconut cake - 2 layers with this delightful smooth, creamy "tongue-does-happy-dance" frosting. Will post pictures at some point tonight. Edit: So I bought a book, Rose's Heavenly Cakes, and decided to make a coconut cake. JUst really wanted coconut. The cake is delicious, but the frosting. THE FROSTING. it's a swiss meringue buttercream....shit. i wish you could taste this. kinda pissed..bought 2 coconuts and this one was rotten on the inside. Still looks pretty...except the rotten spot. lol.
  20. What are you listening to right now?

    There is so much more - Brett Dennon (en?)
  21. Wee Rants

    it will, and anyone who gives you a timetable is out of their mind. you mourn at your pace. <3
  22. What are you listening to right now?

    Star Mile - Josh Radin Gotta say...he was kinda angsty and depressing in concert. :\ also..lmfao at anthony listening to Tom Jones-Sex Bomb. Love that song. so funny.
  23. Baking (and cooking?)

    what colors are you going to do?! I think that using a lot of white frosting between the layers looks really sharp. i've seen people skimp on the white, and the layers just kind of smush together. PICTURES!!!!!!!!!

    quote: Originally posted by silver bullet trailer: I wanted to keep this private, but i feel like i need to talk to someone different about this, and you guys have always been here. I recently found out that someone I knew fairly well passed away over winter break. In a way, I am lucky that I have never known someone this well who died, but on the other hand, I have no idea how to deal with it. He was a beautiful person and i can't help but think how great the rest of his life could have been if he had lived... Suddenly everything is so depressing. I feel there should be something I can do, but he is already gone. death is so uncertain, both when it is someones time to go and also in the after life portion, which makes it hard to cope with and mourn. I'm very sorry for your loss, and unfortunately nothing I can say about my experiences with death will carry over to yours. I wish you and the other people who knew him great peace in the coming months, years... Think of the times you spent together, rather than the time you're spending apart. And if you are angry, you have every right to be. It's a natural emotion associated with grief. Seek counseling. It will help. Even if it is a teacher, or a friend. Open up to someone. Not sure if any of this will help...I know it really doesn't in the end, but know that people are here that you can talk to.

    thank you! but, i just kinda do it for stress relief....and to keep the hubby happy. you know, i don't want him running off with another baker!!! XD
