BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD

Happy Trails, Bitch!

LJ Friend drama rears it's head again, but it's all good. Wasn't the first time, won't be the last time. To be honest, I'm glad it's turned out the way it has, wherein he took me off his friends list first and I followed suit. Future confrontations would have gotten ugly sooner or later, and I don't want or need that, but nature is nature and I'm not going to back down or kowtow to anyone being rude to me or telling me what to do - who to be - what to let go of - how to behave.

I've been through with justifying myself to anyone else for years, and it's not my job to make anyone comfortable with me. You take me as I am or fuck right off, those are the only choices.

So. It's all done this time and I'm glad.

I picked it out of a hat, actually - it was between that and greatwhitesnark. I put up a poll and this is the one that won.

because he is so tasty with butter and a sausage patty and muscadine preserves.

Damn that sounds good!

my aunt discovered that preserved figs work great in this combo.

I miss all the drama. *pout*

It isn't hard to find.

I'll take any way I can get you. And I'm in agreement with the post. I don't do passive-aggressive, and I won't be scolded.
9th-Jun-2008 03:57 am (UTC)
Amen. My opinions are MY opinions.
9th-Jun-2008 12:01 pm (UTC)
Pretty much, yes.
9th-Jun-2008 04:26 am (UTC)
You are so tolerant, I can't imagine what set you off. For instance, if someone told you you were full of shit about an opinion you revealed, you would say "prove it." I think the only thing that sets you off is "Hey, come on, don't say those things." Then you get all "WHAT? I'll say whatever the fuck I WANT!" Which is what i'd do, so maybe I'm projecting...

What I mean is, the only thing I've seen you get good and pissed about where you drop folks is censorship. A difference of opinion doesn't usually set you off, does it?
9th-Jun-2008 04:30 am (UTC)
You pretty much nailed it, but then you know me better that way!
9th-Jun-2008 04:34 am (UTC)
I just don't see how people can drum up the infernal arrogance to suggest someone censor themselves. That's just balls of steal and brains of ass.
9th-Jun-2008 04:37 am (UTC)
That is an awesome way of putting it, I like!

I was truly astonished by that exchange, and I'm not exactly an LJ-drama virgin. So much that it made me refrain from posting my comment of picturing McCain in full Emperor Palpatine "Yes..yes..feel the hatred" mode.

This Obama/Clinton conflict has caused some serious rifts on my FL.
9th-Jun-2008 05:16 am (UTC)
You saw what happened in my post.
9th-Jun-2008 12:06 pm (UTC)
Refresh my memory - link?
9th-Jun-2008 12:06 pm (UTC)
I'm not - this isn't the first time between us, and it had been brewing for a little while now.

The Obama /Clinton thing has really done a number on a lot of people, and what's pissing me off most about that is this "time to move on" bullshit. That's a personal decision and people decide for themselves when to do that, not when you personally think it is time. Some people aren't done being pissed off or bitter - some people think it was all obvious from the beginning - some people decided that the time to move on from Hillary Clinton was MONTHS ago.

BTW, my comment in the linked post still stands, almost...

I think you are FINER now.
9th-Jun-2008 12:07 pm (UTC)
LOL - thanks, J!

...I give him a 6.5 because IMO a flounce should never hit the character limit for a post.

He and I did the mutual de-friend thing a few months ago when he kept up the "Obamaniac who drank the kool-aid" (paraphrasing) stuff repeatedly. I rather enjoy having a dialog with others (as if you couldn't tell LOL), but it drives me apeshit crazy when someone just wants a sycophantic audience and gets pissy when I won't be a member of same.
9th-Jun-2008 03:07 pm (UTC) - Re: On A 10-Point Scale...
Yeah, there was a lot of that too.

I
cannot
will not deal with someone who makes it clear that their opinion is the only one that really matters, as if others are wrong to have one of their own. "Don't challenge me on anything, just agree with me. I don't have anything to learn from you and I'm not going to try" kind of people are not the kind I can ever be invested in again, not after what I've gone through this past year with my father.

More and more I listen to the voice in my head that addresses others who expect things of me I'm not willing to give them, it says in a clear and direct way "No, fuck you - I don't owe you that." Besides, more often than not I find that people who pull that shit are just trying to control you in some way, and I cannot be controlled by anyone but me.

If I think about him, it just makes me sad that people have to be that way. I've been sad about so many things for so long that I'm choosing not to be sad anymore. I have a better life than I ever dreamed possible for myself, and there is nothing better than finally learning how to live - really live - instead of just surviving and getting by.

Bingo bango bongo. The older I've gotten, the less and less tolerance I have for any type of bullshit, and most especially the passive-aggressive "The world's not just All About Me, the world's ALL All About Me" type who want everything to be Their Way and Their Way Alone.

I have a better life than I ever dreamed possible for myself, and there is nothing better than finally learning how to live - really live - instead of just surviving and getting by.

It's showin', darlin', it's a-showin'.

P.S. Once we're settled up here (presuming that one of us can actually find a fucking job in CanadaLand), y'all have a standing invitation any time y'all want to visit.

Awesome - thanks muchly!

More power to ya, brother.

I think Rick Astley said it best...


Never gonna give you up,
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and hurt you.

*Hugs*
