16 was spent up to my balls in freezing bog water doing beating on some estate so some Norwegains could shoot some pheasants. but got a few afterwards and the food was good and hot a lunch time, not bad for £15 a day.
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

Plus, if you're gonna be an aggressive heartless bitch, at least own up to it.  Anytime I tried to call her on it, she'd be like, that's not what I meant, but I don't care enough to discuss it with you further, so (implied meaning) I'm right and you're wrong...somehow.

She did, she owned up to it and never denied she was extremely unsympathetic and touchy. *not using heartless bitch because just because she was toward you guys doesn't me she was/is *
And for when you called her on it, most of her explanations made sense to me, even if I didn't see eye to eye with her. Maybe it's because you were the one arguing with her that you saw them the way you did?

and for the record she'll be 19 in a few months <.<

Yeah, I thought she owned up to it to an extent.

Also remember that text NEVER conveys emotions very well.  You don't get tone of voice and all sorts of body language that can dampen, soften and even completely change the meaning of a lot of words that sound harsher when read directly.

I still remember her writing a critique of one bloke's work (the guy who coloured my signature) and it seemed like a total insult of his work, but discussing later, it was totally NOT what she intended it to be.

Unfortunately, people tend to read out text with a certain tone of voice applied and it's often not the one intended.  Over the years, I've generally learned to apply a bored, mater-of-fact tone of voice to almost everything I read but I'll still read things wrongly sometimes *shrug*

COME BACK GUYS!

You definitely have to be extra careful when communicating on the nets.

Except when it's you. When I read your writing, I usually filter it through your silly grin and happy go lucky :)

Thats what I aim for, but I have found people take my words more seriously than I intend at times and it gets me trouble.  Its why I use so many smile faces and actions such as *meh* *shrug* *lol* ,etc.

Pozf: yes you are absolutely right and thanks for pointing those things out.  In the spirit of not talking behind people's backs (more), I'll drop it here.  Plus you're right.  I don't think she was a heartless bitch at all.  I thought maybe that's how she acted outwardly sometimes, or came across, maybe without intending to do so.  I was trying to say that I can deal with people who are "aggressive conversationalists", but it sort of seemed like she wanted to be free from all responsibility for feelings created by her words, or people's interpretations of her words.  And again, that's surely not what she was saying, but she'd kind of be like (paraphrasing) "I don't know you, therefore I didn't want your feedback and I don't want to give it much merit or thought."  Now I personally don't have time to get to know people more deeply outside the forum, but I'm fairly me on here, so y'all know me pretty well if you care to, with the exception that I don't really post much about my children or my work, which actually make up the vast majority of my life, but are things I come here for a break from.  Also, it takes me a lot before I'll give "feedback".  I'm pretty allowing and accepting of different personalities I think.  I like different personalities.  Whoops I guess I didn't drop it as much as I meant to, or at all really.  Sorry.  I don't remember her admitting that she was unsympathetic or touchy though...Maybe I missed it.

Finally, sometimes I overreacted to one of her posts, because there was 3 or 4 before that that kind of bugged me that I hadn't said anything about.

Finally finally, if Deatzh were here now, I feel that I would have to pay dearly for these few posts by having them crammed up my ass sideways.  But I guess that would really only be my interpretation of her response.  Something I need to work on.  I tend to hear everything my wife says as if she were yelling at me as well, if she tells me to come home early or something like that.  Probably related.

But thanks again Pozf for pointing out the things I hadn't thought of, or had forgotten.  Also me being wrong about her age.  A year makes a big difference in that range (14-25 or so, maybe...)

Charles: What are you trying to say?? >:(  Are you trying to say I'm an a-hole who can't read right??  Cuz that's what it sounds like you're saying!  ;)

p-Fae: Thanks! :)

shadowfire: haha

Churba: is too hot for his pants

oddball: In this forum, only you could have possibly had that job at 15.  that's awesome.

Thank you Oddball let's change the subject to something cool like trench foot, to shut me up.  (I'm being serious)

Trench foot is freaking nasty by the way...

i'm sure razzly will poke her head in if she wants, I'm still expecting john gallant to poke his head in again. and i personally leave for long times myself

Yeah! I miss Gallant, too. I have other means of getting in touch with him, as with bonebreaker, & I've been meaning to tell the both of them to come over & play with me. ::)

I know gallant uses the facebook. cause the once yearly check of mine had his pic on it, but i really don't know how to use the facebook so i just avoid it. tho apparently i have a fan club there XD

awww, i love facebook! i check it like 5 times a day. xD this way i keep in touch with my friends from back home/know what they're up to/they what i'm up to.

i mostly talk to the friends i see here in college, tho, even over facebook. it's especially handy right now that my cell phone is broken...

'Tis one reason I use so many faces & emoticons. I really do feel/talk like this most of the time. :-*

Charles, when I read your text, I hear a lilt. Spirited or cheerful words. Yeah, I think it's cuz of the pictures of your fantastic grin. ^^

I generally read CDSM as fairly cheerful, yet you always seem to tell us that you're fairly emotionless.... And yet, somehow, I read you as an almost playful person *shrug*

I feel that I know you on several more dimensions than charles, since we've talked about quite a few personal things, concerning romance & the way our emotions work & the way we live. So I hear a lot more going on. Smart, playful, brooding, etc., depending on what you are talking about. :)

Hi.  I often disappear from the forums myself.  In fact, I post so infrequently, I doubt you know me at all...
