    Re: THE RANT THREAD!

    So, even though I live at home though in the sable house (an apartment above the sable) care for the horses in the middle of the night and call the vet at all hours of the night as well as train them and teach clients how to ride, I pay rent, buy my own food and clothes and have just acquired my pilots license and officially am on stand by for airfield ( I just got a job doing tourist fly arounds) my mother says I MUST still attend University to obtain my physicist PH.D or I need to move out because, and I quote, " no daughter of her's is going to be a nomadic pilot vagabond that is a paganist. I support her religion choice but not her wayward career". Jewish mother at her finest. My brother agrees and my sister says I can stay in her spare room at her house. What a nightmare! And dad is afraid to tell my mom to ***k off but supports me.

    I wish but unfortunately no. We make decent money but no one takes my student loans into account. When he applied for fasfa we were denied because they said we made to much but never mind half of my income goes to paying for my now worthless degree. Yes worthless the school lost its accreditation 2 years after I graduated which means his is also worthless.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Rookie, I'm generally moderately forgiving of screw-ups provided I see ample evidence of effort. However, if you make a habit of bungling relatively easy closing responsibilities so badly that a benevolent description of your efforts results in the general manager telling me to go do the job right then I may be tempted to hang you from the ceiling by a very inconvenient portion of your anatomy. Do not do this again.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Re: THE RANT THREAD!

    My mail acount has been blocked. My backup mail hasn't been used for years and seems to not exist anymore. So I have to fill out a bunch of questions and wait 24 hours praying it's enough to reopen it... so has my mail been hacked? I doubt it. I did, however, log in from my computer last night - I usually use my phone. That's apparently enough to have it closed...

    I use Mozilla Thunderbird,or did..Gmail it seems considers Thunderbird NOT secure enough and so will not allow it to log into my Gmail.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Apparently, AT&T cell phones are having problems in the area. Everybody's whining.
    Keep a landline, people, if at all possible! First of all, unless you are diligent about keeping that cell phone in your pocket, it does you no good at the other end of the house if you need to call for help. Secondly, most times when power goes out, even cell towers, you still have a dial tone and can use your real phone.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    My 3 day weekend destroyed and now I get to spend the day feeling ill.

    After I talk to my employer I think I'm going to hide in my video games until work happens tomorrow.

    My alarm has gone off, and I'm still sleepy.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

    Finally home from petsitting. I didn't mind doing it by any means, but what kind of cave people don't have internet in their home?!

    Re: THE RANT THREAD!

    I'd dreading reading this chapter. It's not my fave story to begin with, I've already read this rewritten chapter, and now she wants us to read the re-rewritten chapter, This will be round 3 for one, extra-long chapter. And I very rarely reread books I actually liked!
    She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness. ~~(=^._.^)

    I got my war paint on and I'm off to go passive-aggressive all over these socially awkward man-witches.
