Things are OK, thanks for asking. The funeral wasn't neary as bad as I worried.
You are right about the other issues. Not sure what to do about the egos and omnidirectional unfocused anger. Often makes me want to give up. Life is too short for that.
On the name - no good reason. Playing. Same word, just changed it from Italian to English.
Othewise OK. I have a high-stress life. Not sure why I don't just say fuck it all, I quit, it's only one life, might as well live it. Still, there are reasons. I think. A|N here is more peaceful now. I was tired of so much senseless drama. Im not into drama.
You have a handsome cat. Cats know how to live. Ours' is very expressive - I think she's saying "me. me. me. me. me". She's next to me on a warm electric blanket as I type.
How goes your world? SC must be similar climate-wise to WA. Maybe warmer summer.
Thanks for viewing the Bach. I am familiar with Maisky, but didn't realize he had recorded the Bach suites. I am impressed. Much better than Yo-Yo Ma. Anyway, this piece was rattling around in my mind on Xmas eve. If I were a cellist, I think I could spend my entire life mastering these pieces and be infinitely happy doing so. But that's just me :-)
Hey - you have my household in stitches with that comment! Even my mother agrees with you! I've just written an article for a major metropolitan newspaper which probably meets all the criteria in your quiz too. No guarantee it will be published yet, but fingers crossed. Never have tolerated fools gladly.
My patience has run thin after her last remarks. I understand her problems with certain right wingers, but she likes to use stereotypes against those she disagrees with as much as she hates having those same people use stereotypes.
And apparently she knows me better then I do...from just a few posts on a forum ;)
It is down. It keeps getting hacked. Hopefully it is almost fixed.

Well well. I thought I may actually be the ONLY atheist in TR, lol. Funny story that only a TR person would get...about a month ago I went to Leopard Forest coffee shop on poetry night thinking that it was a place that ideas could be freely exchanged and possibly even meet another freethinker. Little did I know that everyone there was from North Greenville College. After about 5 straight testimonials about how Christ changed their lives, yadda yadda ya, I realized what was happening. Memo: don't go to poetry night in TR unless you're ready for bible study. Oh and BTW I am laughing my a$$ off at this song on your page. :P
I can see the top of Paris mountain above the last dregs of snow on the cherry tree by my window... and isn't that Russia just beyond it? I was on your rather lovely campus on Saturday, paddling around the track in the rain. I must question why you think god kills a kitten every time Man U, win.... I thought it was every time Aston Villa scored, but then I was born and bred under the shadow of Birmingham's dark satanic mills. As a kid, I wondered how many satans a day these mills were turning out. Probably more than the number of cars coming out of the British Leyland plant which seem to be perpetually on strike. Oh dear, I've gone all stream of consciousness again. More coffee is in order.
