Hark – the oracle speaks! A bolt of lightning falls from the sky! SHAZAAM! As the smoke clears, the hidden deity in you emerges and is revealed to be:
EROS, God of Love.
As a devotee of this long-neglected virtue, you are a committed romantic. You prefer to savor the joys of seduction before you step into the bedroom. This quality makes you incredibly attractive to women, who seem to melt in your presence. They sense your strong character and respect your ideals. They dream of stealing you away and making dreamy love to you all day long. Not to say you wouldn’t be happy to oblige, but you want to make sure that there’s some emotional or intellectual compatibility between you and your partner to carry the relationship along. By the time you are ready to show them your godly performance, they’re hooked. You take sex seriously and show your lucky woman a passion that has only existed in her wildest dreams. You are probably an emotionally expressive and sensitive person whose pleasure comes from pleasing others. Your chivalrous ways have probably earned you a following of fans and a trail of satisfied mortals in your wake.
My anger has dissipated. I still am not keen on being lied to. that is one of my buttons. stupid lies don’t bother me. fish stories, bragging, whatever, fine. If you say “I am there for you, I will cover your back, you can depend on me” and then go out to lunch when I am being thrown to the wolves, well. If I live through the being eaten alive, don’t ask me for any favors.
A co-worker just did that to me. I needed him, told him so, he said the above, and proceeded to leave 4 minutes after saying so. garrumph.
If you can’t or won’t do something, don’t commit to me that you will. I know things come up. but “Life happens”, or “something better came along” doesn’t cut it. Lunch is not a life changing circumstance. A death did not occur.
I’m now officailly over it, but will never trust that person with anything of value again, and if he asks, I’ll let him know why. Unprofessional and unkind behavior rarely goes unpunished.
His report card now reads “does not play well with others” in my mental gradebook.
Thank you to the sweethearts who came to my rescue with hugs and loves by the way.
onto more happy things, maybe thai tonight will happen, although I’m not interested in griping now that I’ve vented here. I will be a dutiful listener though, and tell all the lovely stories of recent memory, like about my crush, and how newton plays fetch with paperwads, and how cool the new godzilla movie is.
Note to the world.
If any of your residents decides to lie to me today, for the rest of the day, or break my trust, I, a normally docile, laid back, calm and loving person will proceed to rip said oath-breaker/trust-taker’s arms from trunk and beat said being beowulf style until they no longer function. (all of the above, arms, trunk, and said person.)
Do not lie to me today. Do not break a promise to me today.
Do buy me lunch and give me hugs.
looks left, then right for a happy thing
Cookie Belcher. 🙂 Getting better.
goodness… welcome aboard, new friends. thanks so much to inquisitor, stef and reive for linking up to me.
sakes. I’m all flattered and such. 🙂
The best UFO story of all is the story of the fabulous airship of 1897. It’s got everything: contactees, cattle mutilation, sonorous pronouncements, mysterious lights, the planet Venus, alien bodies, crash wreckage, Men in Black, politics and sex. Well, it doesn’t have much sex. It was 1897, after all.
The full story will follow someday soon. in the meantime, just know that there’s nothing new under the sun. 🙂
Beginning again. I had a nice time last night, despite not being online or going out to thai. 🙂 played with the cat, talked on the phone , and just had a relaxing evening at home.
I’m curious… do any of you folks have a word or two that sounds particularly silly or funny?
I have a few…. Yucca Flats. Ricardo Montalban, Komkquat. The word boink. I’m laughing now, and my cubemate thinks I’m insane. (I just said, well, boink, komquat!”)
Cookie Belcher? Is that really a name? Or are people messing with me? Who names a boy Cookie? What kind of nick name is it? like Dick Butkis. What were they thinking? Did they speak english?
Ugh. time for me to go! See you folks soon, and be safe, ok?
