I'm surfing the web on my laptop, sitting next to my husband, who was playing Katamari Damacy. Eh, it keeps me off the streets.

I must have no life because I posted on a Saturday night?

Fascinating.

At least my posts were about something besides who posted.

My Saturday was just fine...you'll have to forgive me; I don't travel to Europe every weekend, and my airplane was being inspected by the mech. So I was working on getting the home network onto uninterruptable power and geotagging my vacation photos.

Maggie, don't take the bait and feel you need to "justify" anything to anyone.

Seems he is just pulling wings off of flies for the fun of it.

You're life is way kewl, girl!!!

Oh, I was just rubbing it in...he's fresh off the "taking my ball and going home" thread where nobody begged him to stay.

Hey. You can speak for yourself, Mister.

Saturday night doesn't start until 11:00 or midnight. In fact, I just woke up. And I'm still drunk from last night. Yeah, that's the ticket. Four hours sleep, and it's killing me.

What, you think 9:51pm is Saturday night? (btw, this, my friend, is why time stamps are better than "ago.")

Out of Ireland have we come.
Great hatred, little room,
Maimed us at the start.
I carry from my mother's womb
A fanatic heart.

Loser?

I did go to a cocktail party on Saturday night, but most everyone there was about 10-years younger than me. No wife, no girlfriend. I just hung around and drank high gravity beer and then went home to listen to my shortwave radio. I'm a loser because I've lost a lot of people in the last few years: A wife (divorce) the new fiance (car wreck), my best high school buddy and his pregnant wife (car wreck), my best buddy at work (brain tumor), etc. I'm not looking for sympathy, just stating the fact that the last few years have been shite for losing people. Now I'm just a nihilistic stoic. I hate my country, too. People just consume things. Fat ugly Americans. Even if they stole the election, enough people voted for W. to show how lame we are as a country. Backwards, superstitious, Christocentric asswipes. People with cell phones. Ipods. McMansions. Buy buy buy. Obsessed with superficiality. Vaginal rejuvination. Great. Viagra. Plastic boobs. $5.00 breakfast cereal. Great. Febreze. Great.

@Pangloss: I'm sorry to hear about all the loss you've experienced. It tends to make on philisophical about things, doesn't it, staring in the face of our inevitable mortality? (See my "Fear of Loss" thread.) But you're doing okay, I think, because you've got a good head on your shoulders. You're a thinker. You aren't buying into the simple solutions being pushed on you, whether it be religious or commercial. You're setting your own course, and along the way, confronting some hard reality. But, you aren't giving in, you aren't surrendering to the fairy tales.

I need people like you. The internet brings us together. After it removes all of our superficial aspects, the things that seperate us, we are forced to interact as disembodied intellects. People wonder, is this "real" - talking to people on a computer screen? I think it can be more "real" than most of what goes on in our society. We can play games, and hide behind walls of make-believe, but how is that any different than what people do every day? Here, at least, there is no concrete agenda.

Anyways...don't make sad faces, dude. I hate that.

EDIT: You sound alot like a character in a Herman Hesse novel.
