As of my last post and the time I've spent thinking about some of the complete bullshit going on, I realize that:

A: I am involved to the point that my name has been dropped several times in the course of the last two weeks of rumor circulation, and B: everyday there is something new either going on or being embellished or added and therefore I have a proposal to make for all of you I've heard shit about or are directly/indirectly involved in this neverending stream of diarrhetic babble and backstabbing underhandedness.

This is what I propose. I would like for the following people to meet on neutral ground, like the bandshelter at Lakebottom:

and myself

The purpose of said meeting will be to finally, once and for all, put rumors to rest; call one another out on things they have allegedly said to accuse one another of; hold one another (and yourself be) accountable for your actions; and see for yourselves who really is your friend and who just claims to be.

I ask this in the name of settling this bullshit and putting and end to it, resuming friendships or finally severing all ties, and getting closure. I would hope that people could behave like adults, but I give up on that notion as it would be asking too much. I further ask that if people let their emotions get the best of them, then make sure you fucking kill one another so the rest of us can get along with it.

Life is fleeting, folks - all this bullshit that you think is important just isn't. You all pride yourselves on being free thinkers and having nothing to hide, I'm directly challenging that ideal right now. If you have nothing to hide and are not afraid of the truth, you have nothing to lose.

I've had it with this bullshit. I want to know once and for all where I stand with people and would hope you did too. I'm not going to walk on eggshells anymore and politely look the other way. And for the record, I can all but guarantee you that the things you might expect to hear will not be the things you actually do hear.

I want everyone to give everyone else the benefit of the doubt and the opportunity to speak their peace for say 10 minutes each before commenting in person.

Before I finish, just know this - if we were all truly friends, none of this would be necessary. Simmer on that for a while.

This is not a joke, I'm completely serious. Either be in or be out, just know that if you choose not to participate then you forfeit your rights to talk shit about each other to me unless you talk to that person FIRST.


Whatever business might go on between roomates at Renea/Anjelica/Pam/John/Celeste's house regarding living situations, bills, money, employment issues and the like are for the members of THAT household to discuss amongst themselves and are not the business of anyone NOT living in that house. Discussion of such things is not pertinent to my suggested meeting of people, but instead an opportunity for everyone to see the alleged shit starters react when someone else rubs their noses in their own shit. If you have nothing to hide, you will have no problem coming to meet everyone. If you do have something to hide or are afraid of confronting one another with the truth, then you're not the friend you claim to be - so sit your ass down and shut the fuck up.

The only way I'm in favor of making Nate suffer through this stuff, as he is an innocent party to it all, is to know what is being said by people so he can decide for himself who to consider a friend and who not to. Otherwise, it will just be ugly.

I hear what you are saying, I knew who you were talking about, and I also know that you've been name dropped just like I have and it's only fair that you be included. If you have nothing to add at a meeting like this, fine - but you've got the oportunity to be present if any he said/she said comes up and you're the one being talked about. Plus, the truth flying around freely has a strange way of letting you know stuff that might affect you more than you think, especially when it is stuff you never knew or would suspect. All this provided it happens and everyone is brave enough to go through with it.

I have nothing to hide, and have NO qualms about speaking to someone when there's a problem. I only feel that sometimes - it's really not worth it to keep trying to be friends with someone when there are continuous problems. But if everyone else is willing - so am I. Bring it.

I agree completely, and that is exactly why I want this. I'm over the childishness and petty bullshit and I personally want people who start this shit held accountable and set as an example for any future bullshit, if for no other reason then to prove that they are not to be listened to or taken seriously. If no such persons exist, all the better - but between every rumor flying, between every half truth told by someone running their mouth to someone else, between all of it - someone is telling the truth, and someone is an asshole.

Exactly. I've already been to high school - can we not go back please?

It's over, we all know what we need to know. It's over.

No it's not. It's necessary.

No, it'll be over when everyone can sit face to face instead of behind a monitor and talk like people, show their asses, or whatever - but face to face for a change with the lights on and for everyone else to see. That way if anyone is a liar or an instigator, they can defend themselves fairly or be outed.

If someone has a problem with me than they can come to me about it. I don't need to go to a damn meeting for that. Everything that I have had beef with I have confronted and moved on. I know who my friends are and I know who I keep at a distance. If anyone has a problem with that they can kiss my ass. I gave my trust out once...I am more careful about it now. Some meeting with 50 different situations going on at once is not going to fix that.
17th-Mar-2003 12:47 pm (UTC) - heh
i've no problem with a meeting..but i really have no problem with anyone on the list, so i mean, it'd be kinda pointless..
