|09:55 am - Flights and pretending I'm a bird. . .|
I have a flight booked to Phoenix.
I'll arrive May 6, 2004, at 12:50 PM.
Now I just have to find a flight that'll get me back. . .
I've never been to AZ. Should be fun. . .

My whole family lives down there, well, between Tucson and Phx. I prefer Tucson to Phx by a long shot. Hope you enjoy. If you meet a Donthedruid at said ADF gathering, give him shit. One of the most arrogant sob's I have ever met in my life.
I'll be sure to pack the Shenannigan Shillelagh. I don't leave home without it.
The trick will be getting it past the security thugs at the gate, no?
And his ego will be hard pressed to fit in the same state as mine, if it's that big. If nothing else, I'll push him over into New Mexico by sheer weight of ego alone.
He invited me to a Oestara ritual, since I was a lone pagan in the part of the state I was residing in at the time. When I got there and he found out I was of a different tradition than ADF, he pulled the "one true Druid path" card out and said he wouldn't do a Druid ritual for a non-ADF person and did a really fluff-bunny type ritual. He was convinced that his was the only true Grove, only true Druid path, etc, and that anyone else couldn't handle the intensity of his rituals. He was so insulting and condescending the entire day, was horribly rude to my daughter and then after all of that had the nerve to hit on me. I found out a year or so later after I moved away that I was not the first person to have a lot of trouble with this person for similar things. He's in Tucson, btw, and seems to fancy himself as a Very Important Pagan in the AZ pagan community. Or at least he did a couple years ago. I lost touch as quickly as I could.
You know, I hit on a lot of women. In fact, I hit on just about anything with two legs.
But I try not to insult said women, either before or after the fact.
I really love guys who know the "right" way to do things, and when they "show" you how to do it, you can tell that they're making it up as they go along.
I like to admit it first: I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm having fun doing it.
In the words of Indiana Jones, "I don't know, I'm making this up as I go."
Yeah, the Shillelagh is goin' with. But if he's as bad as you say, I don't think he'd hang around guys like Kirk and Gannd, cuz they'd tell him where to shove it.
Glad you managed to lose touch. Lots of people don't manage that and get stuck in very bad situations.
He wasn't hard to loose. He was my dad's age and when I made it clear I wasn't interested in him, I was written off. Which was more than fine with me. There is nothing wrong with making things up as you go, as long as you are honest about it. *nod*
There is hitting on women. And then there is just being plain creepy. This guy made creepy seem like a nice option in comparison.
Wow. I hope I'm still hitting on 18 year olds when I'm 100, but I defintely plan to stop if anyone ever tells me I'm creepy.

Don. A friend of mine, and yes, he was and is a very active participant in SSG. He can be obnoxious, but he really has a heart of gold, and is more a pussy cat than the tiger he tries to pretend to be. One can misunderstand him easily, for sure. Take him with a grain of salt, and be kind to him, and he is actually pretty nice - and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
