|01:14 pm - Lunchtime thoughts. . .|
I had three thoughts at lunch today, and I thought I would share:
I would not support just pulling out of Iraq completely. It would be like practicing coitus interruptus and then, nine months later, saying, "I didn't create that baby! I pulled out just in time!"
Of course, given this administration's theories on birth control, it might just believe that coitus interruptus is more effective than condoms, too.
I saw a bunch of Kerry supporters on the Oval today. They were stumping for their candidate.
All I could think was, "Damn, you bastards should be registering people to vote, not telling them how to vote."
I'd never leave ADF. You couldn't pay me. Honestly, no matter how screwed up this place is, no matter how many crazy relations this extended family of Druids has, I still love it. Maybe that reflects on my own mental state?

Somehow, making the analogy between Iraq's future mess and America's unwanted bastard child comes across as terribly funny.
I certainly thought so :)

You know, reading some of the complaints on the mailing list, I was struck by how impatient people are. ADF is 20 years old--it's an infant, still learning to crawl. Why don't people understand that building this takes time? Building a good organization takes a long time, building a good study program takes a long time. Getting the by-laws right takes time, and revision is a GOOD thing, in my opinion.
Meh. Just my ranting.
Maybe we should add Patience to the list of 9 virtues?
"Fast as a speeding oak," indeed!
Ah! Patience IS a virtue!
*grins* Avoid meeting me until you've met the "normal" ADFer's, then. I'll either be the one that pushes you over the edge, or the breath of fresh air. You can take your pick ;)
My money is on the breaking point :)

yay! someone to meet at Wellspring.
I'll tell you, until i went to Wellspring to support my SD, I despised ADF for tons of reasons. Now, some of those reasons are gone and some are mitigated by other things.
Going to Wellspring was an important turning point for me.
Is your mental state like the State of Pennsylvania?
Sorry, that was a low, low blow. ;-)
You deserve smackage for that.
You can't leave ADF... you're one of three reasons I'm sticking around! I entirely blame you for my being more active. Honestly, you gave me hope in ADF again. It can never fill what I need, but it does give an interesting dessert. ;)
Hehe. Good to know I can get someone to be active. Most of ADF, as you know, is full of people who just hang out. 'Tis fine for them, but I want action! Hot, lesbian schoolgirl action, to be exact!
Oh, wait. We're talking about ADF still, aren't we?
If I can find a hot girlfriend I can show some hot lesbian action... the school-girl part went out in my late teens though. Settle for hot lesbian old maid action? ;)
There's probably a niche for that on the internet. . . Can I record and sell it?
