So, I call Lego. He's in the middle of a birthday party for his girlfriend.

So, I call Cortland. He's in the middle of dinner. With his girlfriend.

So, I call Fading Aura, knowing she doesn't have a girlfriend. But she's out.

:(

Nobody wants to talk to me!

I did call FAUB and get proof that his wife is a real person, or at least, that there was a woman in his home claiming to be his wife. ;)

Ooooo, I haven't heard from FAUB in ages! :o Did they get the Canada-US problems worked out, then? That would be marvelous.

My stylized glass and gold piece from my bestest best broke because my Mother was too impatient. Usually I do not get upset over such things but it was one of my two favourite items in my whole room, and it was one of two things that my friend has ever gotten me.

That's what I get for working 11+ hours today. :P I should be home after 10 if you still feel like picking up the phone and chatting.
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look, but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown; the dream is gone. And I have become comfortably numb.

I always have toothaches and, yes, they are horrible. I still don't see how a toothache is worse than having no car though, probably because my toothaches are so constant, they're not as big a problem for me.


I wasn't trying to say that your problems weren't worse than a toothache, if that's what you're getting at, and I'm sorry if you misunderstood. I was just saying that "Damn, toothaches suck ass."

demonuncle wrote:Besides, just because you have worse problems, doesn't mean mine are easy for me to deal with.


And I never said otherwise. In fact, I completely agree with that. Yes, some problems are worse than others. But everyones problems are important, and everyones problems matter to them, and are usually not easy to deal with. Hell, if they were easy to deal with, then they wouldn't [b]be[/i] problems in the first place. And anyway, it actually sounds like you were thinking differently in a previous post...

demonuncle wrote:No offense, but others here are "complaining" over far sillier crap. Eye twitch? Toothache? C'mon.


They don't think those things are silly. They may not be as bad as yours, no; and they may not be "OMG EMO END OF THE WORLD" type problems...but they're still irritating enough for people to have mentioned them in the first place.

Besides, Kolter was only joking in his post anyway; trying to put some humor in a somewhat depressing thread. He didn't say "Hey, you're actually complaining when we're not, just stop it right now! Rawr!" so don't take his post so seriously...your problems matter. It sucks. We know. And for that matter, you didn't have to take my previous post so seriously either...once again, I was only saying that toothaches suck, I wasn't taking a shot at you!

Postby Demonuncle on Fri Mar 23, 2007 7:08 pm

Alright, I'm going to clean this up... Even though I don't think anyone cares...

The reason why I got into an accident while driving while not having my license was because I was practicing with my mom. She was introducing me to the area around the DMV a few weeks before my test and I got into an accident at an intersection and almost killed her. We had to go to the hospital and she couldn't walk right for a while. My dad bought me a nice car a while back I've never driven before and was aiming toward driving it. Now, my mom is using it and wants to trade it in for a vehicle she wants and doesn't care that I have no car and can't afford to even rent. Even if I do ever obtain my license, I can't afford insurance either.

Also, I'm sorry I made fun of people for their "silly complaints", I over-reacted and got nervous. Despite having been a member for about a half a year now, I've rarely ever posted, being really nervous about screwing up my first impression and whoop-dee-do, I did.

I hope I'm forgiven... I offer you all popcorn. I would have made it in a pan on the stove, but I have no stove, so it's microwaved, hope you don't mind...

I'd suggest also getting a blood test for TSH. You may have thyroid problems.

I do. Symptoms I get are: constant fatigue, sleeping extremely deeply and not feeling rested, depression, mood swings, inability to motivate myself to do anything, feeling cold, feeling overall crappy, and very low pulse. (yeah, the last one sounds weird, but your pulse shouldn't be around 45 bpm unless you're a hardcore athlete, which I'm not)

There are more symptoms, but low metabolism is another biggie, if you've gained weight recently for pretty much no reason that's another sign.

Just a thought.

Credit card is max or damn close to it. And we need to go shopping for things...like groceries.

Think went overdrawn with tonight's stress releif purchase aka ice cream, chocolate and soda. Good thing is Ryan's extra funds for working out-of-town all this week should hit next week's paycheck.

If these happened in this order, you have nothing to complain about.


Complaining? I was just mentioning unhappy things that have happened to me. :-? Thought that was the point here. No offense, but others here are "complaining" over far sillier crap. Eye twitch? Toothache? C'mon.


Let me explain.

If it was in this order, then -

You totalled your mom's car (which is bad).
While you did not have a license (which is worse),
and then bitched that she took your car in return (which seems only fair).

I mean, come on. It's dark humor, but you have to admit, there is some humor to be had here. Everyone needs to laugh at themselves a bit.

I don't find it at all humorous, especially not after explaining it and then having to apologize to everyone for being a jerk due to misinterpreting you... ._.;

Crying wolf is when you get someone to work with you under the false pretense that there is an immediate need for their assistance. I am pretty sure I would recall doing that. The last time I called you I did so on accident but turned it into a joke and a conversation. This time I immediately said something akin to "Wow, wish her a happy birthday, let me get off the phone with you right now, I was just calling to chat."

So, did you pick a poor choice of words, is one of us being emo, or do we have some kind of issue to resolve?
