Blogger's added a new photo tool. And after I taught myself how to host pictures off site!
sheesh. So I added a few to what seems to be turning into the girl's confessional. Bless me Joe Priesnitz, for I have had some very sinful thoughts about your boy EJ...
I should feel guilty about treating someone I truly respect and deeply admire like... eye candy, shouldn't I? Oh the shame. Yet another reason my poor introverted self would not survive a face to face meeting. Oh like my face wouldn't telegraph "Hey I've pictured you naked"
Excuse me while I go chase after my brain, I think it rolled under your bus tires.
Right about where I'd want to stick my head.
Well -- to be perfectly honest -- having a mind genuinely entrenched in the gutter, I've pictured everybody on the bus naked. They all look dandy, too.
Texas Longhorns, y'know.
I'm so glad to be feeling better. I've cut out most all processed foods, go easy on the proteins, drink plenty of water, and take Bloom out for a walk most days... Subsequently -- the meds have been cut back!
hey -- you know -- for a middle aged *olde witch*, I rock.
I've got this friend I used to have intense brain fries with on the web: who is now back in my life -- perephially; and we have been going at it in our usual style -- in a public forum.
Poor D. I'm sure people are going to complain about it to him.
The thing is -- my friend's antagonism towards You-Know-Who is more than a little personal. And more than a little my fault. Which he would dismiss, of course.
let me tell you a story...
There were once two princes. the first one, David was a handsome and talented guy who was always sure of what he wanted to do and blessed with the will and abilities to do it. His Parents supported him in his endeavors and he had quite a following -- many of whom had no idea David was actually a Prince.
Now -- that's Charisma.
The other Prince was from an impoverished background. His Royal Parents were not supportive and often disparaged Prince ...um... Morgan to his face and in the presence of others. Be that as it may, he was a brilliant and talented guy who nobody thought was a prince: and indeed, he dismissed his birthright with a shrug and the historical footnote that many a person of royal blood only had that to trade on in the world -- and blue blood without green cash still didn't get you a cup a coffee at the automat.
Both Princes grow up to be dynamic, attractive men -- though to be fair Prince David got the better hair genes.
Enter the girl. Nice girl. Not a princess... and well not so much a girl anymore for that matter. let's call her Kat.
Kat is a crazy-go-nuts fan of David's, and she meets Morgan because he's
a fan of David's, too.
David has no idea these two people exist -- he's got lots of fans after all.
Kat and Morgan hit it off like they have known each other all their lives. Finally, they each have found a missing piece, on their own level of intensity and versimilitude and it isn't long before Morgan and Kat are thinking in terms of long term plans together.
Except Kat is in love with David, and told Morgan allll
Well Morgan logically assumes that Kat given the love and attention of a flesh and blood genuine Prince -- oh, and she does understand the Princely underpinnings and nobless oblige of both men; Kat is one of the sharpest tools in the shed which is what Morgan fell in love with from the start -- will choose to be with a man who truly loves her commonborn though cheeky self, and settle into Happily Ever After.
But part of David's appeal to Kat is that nothing about David needs to be real
Oh -- that he exists in the world and does the wonderful stuff that he does and lives a fairly noble life pursuing his own dreams and ambitions is great and fodder for Kat's fantasy life but through the years she's had a lot crap she's managed to come to terms with -- and this one thing has been her personal refuge.
In her own head.
For a hell of a long time.
She hadn't been thinking of falling in love with Morgan when she told him the dimensions of her feelings for David, she just woke up one morning after incredible sex with Morgan -- and missed David.
And then she laughed at herself -- because she didn't even KNOW David!!
Time passes. Morgan doesn't like that Kat still has strong feelings for David, in fact he starts to feel he is competing for Kat's affections against David -- who as it has been said -- does not have any idea at all that Kat or Morgan exists.
Kat breaks up with Morgan. She loves him -- but she's invested so much of herself over the years into her own head she feels guilty about still having thoughts of David when she SHOULD have been happy with Morgan. And Morgan -- for all his Princehood -- is a man. A good man -- a healthy man with a healthy ego.
And he had become jealous of David.
The breakup shatters both Kat and Morgan -- for different external reasons... the same core one. About a month later they try getting back together. They've missed each other, and both recognize there really isn't anyone else either of them has ever loved -- with whom they can truly be themselves.
Same problems exist, though: the only change is that they're both aware of the problems -- and like all couple's problems need to find a work around, get past them -- or Kat and Morgan will have to say goodbye again.
Now about this time Morgan goes off to a meeting of worldly Princes and actually meets David. This is pretty cool and also awkward. Morgan is able to deal with the reality of David, and it turns out David is a decent all round Prince of a guy which completely twists all of Morgans guts with jealousy because he can picture David and Kat being ridiculously happy together.That's what she'd really like
, Morgan imagines. Happily ever after with David.
and of course -- as always -- David has no idea he's been enshrined in a corner of this triangle.
Morgan leaves the meeting and over the space of the following days tells Kat all about it.
This is much too surreal for Kat: she knows it's killing Morgan to talk about it -- so she says to him one evening -- "Just say it."
And Morgan asks Kat which Prince she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
and Kat choses the Prince who will never under any circumstances give her an ultimatum.
Some people's kids, huh? Just goes to show a cat may look at a king...
but a prince ought not to pussyfoot with felines.
