What's upsetting you today?
 
.. . not sure, but I'm feeling irritable.

Trilby 05-08-2007 01:01 PM

hmmm...a tricky one. Probably the corruption involved with Free-Trade Coffees and Teas and wondering if there is Dolphin in my Chicken of the Sea. I mean, they say it's "dolphin-safe" but really--how do I know? They could be lying.

so, that, and my addiction to percocets...otherwise, I'm cool.

A minor crush has turned into a serious head over heels infatuation but I daren't say anything because he's such a good friend....and if I say something and he doesn't reciprocate it'll be this big uncomfortable thing getting in the way of the friendship. I would hate to spoil the easy rapport we have. I've fancied him for over a year, but this last campaign I was working closely with him and I realised how much I like him. Kind of distracting, with exams around the corner.

Hime 05-08-2007 04:59 PM

Last summer I was working out and looked totally hot, and I bought all of these short shorts and clingy miniskirts to wear. Now that it's time to bring out the summer clothes I've realized that I can't wear ANY of them.

Also, I have to do errands and I'm feeling waaaay too lazy.

Two cute little pygmy nuthatches were building a nest in my house, so I shot them.

I think they'll be alright.

Radiator leak. Crap.

Will Stop-Leak do 'er, or has the tow truck already been called?

Kitsune 05-15-2007 12:19 PM

Its a small leak on the top and I understand that I'm going to have to swap the entire radiator. I'm not familiar with how Stop Leak works. Are there any potentially negative consequences to using it?

I guess that's why his approval rating is down to 28%.

Shawnee's remarks made me cry. But I seem to be crying a lot, lately. :(

Having to come in on a planned day off to do something because you are the only one that knows how to do it.

On the upside, it is job security...:right:

It could, but not necessarily will, plug your heater core.

Whoa there...I didn't say anything to you? Are you thinking of someone else? I get enough guff for things I actually DO say, so please clarify. I need no more bad rap. (And I cry a lot lately too.) :(

Cloud 05-16-2007 02:09 PM

Sorry, shouldn't have singled you out, I apologize.

It was the comments in the thread starting etiquette threads, and the "Cloud starts too many threads" and the implication that I am an obnoxious party guest that upset me a bit.

From everyone, not any single person, so I'm in the wrong.

I'm trying to stay away.

Shawnee123 05-16-2007 02:20 PM

No worries. I just found it odd when my name came up, when the last problem on my mind yesterday was how many threads you start. That was the realm of other Cellarites methinks. Like I said, I don't think I did any dissing at all to you. The poll was for funsies, and I thought you would like it too, so if that offended I'm sorry.

Anyhoo, some people don't like a lot of new threads and some do. I don't mind; I have become involved in many you have started that I've enjoyed. If I'm not interested I just skip it.

It's just personal preference, so don't take it personally. (I'm a great advice giver but don't follow my own advice.) :D

Cloud 05-16-2007 02:24 PM

just a bump in the road, my friend, just a bump in the road

DucksNuts 05-16-2007 06:36 PM

I'm still hungover from Pink and doing the *freak out* about the new dude.

Oh and Army dude *officially* dumped me as well, which is contributing to the freak out.

You're forgetting that there's a reason Congress' approval ratings are about 26%. I'd say it's the foolish behavior of the Jackass Party.

I don't get particularly wound up about people being critical of W per se. Dumping on him on the basis that he has an (R) after his name, though, strikes me as the bloviations of inferior mentality. For God's sake, what has the man done but take down two despotisms -- two despotisms more, in his first four years, than all the Democratic Presidents have done in the previous fifty.

Despotisms and despots dying are good things, and our world needs much more of this. Despotic regimes behave badly, all the time, whereas democracies are far better global citizens. Complaining about making this happen and moving to sabotage it is but the solidest evidence that the Democrats are in the grip of a singularly inferior mentality, an utter incompetence at foreign policy.

I don't like an incompetent foreign policy. I prefer what the Republicans are doing -- they actually try to further the Republic's interest by winning, not retreating. God help our planet if the Democrats' present ideas of foreign policy gain currency. They'll buy us a great big war.

History will vindicate W and will vindicate those like me who support him.

Aliantha 05-16-2007 10:27 PM

Cloud, if you're referring to comments I made in that thread I didn't mean to imply that that's what you were. It was something someone else said that made me think of it and then I was just venting because I was a bit peeved. Sorry if I made you feel bad. It wasn't my intention at all.

Ducksy, that's really sad. I hope you don't let it get you down for too long mate.

HungLikeJesus 05-16-2007 10:40 PM

UG - Excellent! I may not agree with what you say, but I do appreciate your use of the language - particularly the word bloviations. Twice today people used the term fungible when referring to alternative fuels. It's a good word day. Carry on!

skysidhe 05-20-2007 02:13 PM

well, it's been a couple weeks but it bothers me. My X Boyfriend hung up on me. When I complained about it he broke up with me. Then he said If I wanted to continue even as friends with him I had to appologize for getting upset to begin with. fuck that! It would be like saying" hurt me some more"
That came after 8 months of positive feedback. It came out of the blue with no warning. He got along with my kid and I always thought we made better friends and would be good friends forever. I would have liked to remain one but he took the cowards way out or he's just way out. I'm Very confused and still in shock most the time.

He is in to metaphyics so I think he took the long shuttle to pluto. Made some 'energy' remarks. Did this all by email too. :headshake


sorrry...please no condolences. I actualy feel better. Light a giant weight is off my sholders. It was hard to watch someone intellectually understand zen but live peyton place in his heart. I didn't realize how negative it was until he was gone....even if the circumstances of his leaving were so weird. So weird .. It spooked me about him so I'm glad he's gone.


sorry for the long rant..

We love long rants. :)

I'm not happy today because one of our cats is in season and she wont just SHUT THE FUCK UP! I'm about ready to rip her ovaries out myself!

DucksNuts 05-20-2007 06:49 PM

Everyfuckingthing.

I can be more specific, but I am not really into whining...so will just leave it there.

Ali - free the beast, she just wants to get laid. Who are you to stand in the way!!

Aliantha 05-20-2007 06:52 PM

Actually, yesterday she was driving me nuts so I put her on the front verandah. She managed to escape and spent the rest of the day under our neighbours house and wouldn't come out. The boys had to crawl under and get her out in the evening.

She's a dumb cat. How's she going to get laid if she just hides under the house by herself?

bluecuracao 05-20-2007 06:55 PM

I woke up at 8:30 this morning, and thought it would be nice to go out for Sunday brunch for once, since I had lots of time before going to work. But then I fell back to sleep for too long and missed out. And I still have a headache from oversleeping.

no ducks...please whine. I'll feel better. You know...misery and company...ect...ect.

Ali...if you let her out you'll soon have a beautiful litter of kittens. I don't say this lightly.
You see, my X boyfriend let his mewling cat out and now I am the proud owner of two beautiful 3 month old kittens. :D

It must have been some grand design scheme to aquire kittens after my cat died. So please let the cycle of life continue. It's a beautiful thing...plus she'll feel good for awhile.

Aliantha 05-20-2007 07:02 PM

Well, this cat is actually the product of the other two cats in the house. I think two generations is enough really. ;) We had our tom cat fixed up after the litter of kittens in order to avoid more kittens. I know they're cute, and we really love our pets, but we have enough now, and sometimes it's hard to find good homes for the babies.

I'm truly sorry if it made you cry.

I'm not sorry for what I said because it was my opinion, and you did ask for opinions - it wasn't out of the blue.

Just because I don't like lots of new one-question threads it doesn't make me right. I could easily do without the gun threads or religious threads but they were here before I was, so I accept them as part of the Cellar. I'm selfish enough to want this place to stay the same as the day I joined, but if it makes you feel any better Cloud, I appear to be in a minority.

One of the things I love about this place is that it very rarely gets personal, and even when it does it can be forgotten about. I hope you feel that way about this incident too. There is someone posting at the moment who doesn't seem to follow this etiquette and they cause me far more irritation and distress than you do.

Cloud 05-21-2007 01:20 PM

already forgotten.

You can't keep boards the same, unless you don't allow new members. And boards need new members, as old members fade away.

Clodfobble 05-21-2007 06:52 PM

My kiddo is behaving in a generally sickly fashion, and among other things, he keeps refusing all forms of food and instead asking for water, water, more water. When he gets it, he chugs it until he starts to spit it back up. This is upsetting because a friend of mine has a young child who is diabetic, and this is how it started for her. I'm keeping a very close eye on how much he drinks and how much he pees out in the next 12 hours or so. Realistically, does my kid have diabetes? No. But that's what my friend thought too. :(

Cloud 05-21-2007 07:38 PM

oh, yes, that is worrying! I hate it when the kiddos get sick.

Yznhymr 05-21-2007 11:52 PM

What is upsetting me today? A college boy is chasing after my 16yo daughter. I think I may have to hurt him.

wolf 05-24-2007 10:14 PM

I spent the first three hours of my shift surfing the net, reading the Philadelphia Bulletin (yay, it's back), and taking a few inconsequential phone calls. The next four and a quarter hours were filled by an agitated ranting blind guy, a non-verbal severe MR, and the possibility of a self-mutilative teen with autism.

I go home in 45 minutes if all goes well.

It usually doesn't.
