You see, normally about here there's a date, and some thoughts & observations about the day, and stuff I've been doing lately, etc., ad nauseam.

Well, there's not.

This is the entry. THE entry.

Because, I have this great respect for the power of words. I live my life by words, really. The methods by which humans communicate with each other and the world around them gives us a great amount of power. And I have learned through hard lessons and cruel teachers that words, once left, do not come back. I respect the power of words a little too much to be so free with them as to have a regularly available journal for the public, or even the private to read (if you are wondering why you haven't been added to some filter or something, that's because there aren't any. I tole joo, mang, dis is it.). So releasing words just randomly into the ether is the equivalent to me of bungee jumping off of the Golden Gate using rubber bands you gleaned from your office. In other words, Not A Good Idea For Me.

Heh. It probably doesn't help that I'm a shameless addict to other people's words (journals). If that makes me hypocritical, it should also prove to you I'm human. Shock!

Back to words.

I would rather trade words with someone where I can be assured that the power of our words isn't being misused. At worst, I will communicate via email or chat, at best I'd rather chat on the phone or see you in person so I know my words are doing what I want them to do. And not what someone else wants them to do. What I am trying to say here is that if your listed on the "livejournal" friends thingie, you probably know me. And if you know me, you can find me. And if you can find me, I assure you that you can ask me any question you like, we will have any discussion you like and I'll do my best to be a human being and not a neanderthal. Most times.

I'd like it noted for the record that I'm a boy, and I'm willing to communicate. 'Nuff said.

In this day and age of sensory overload, email and txt msg, speed dating (who the f**k came up with THAT?), drive through dinners, ad nauseam, there is too little value placed in real human interaction. I am willing to fight with the cellphone people on their website. I'm willing to talk to my boss' voicemail. I'm willing to communicate with patients through letters (they're old, they like that better sometimes). I'm even willing to make marshallate policy changes on a yahoogroup.
Not with my friends. I value their communcations too much to resign it to this. I would rather *make* time for you.

So this is the anti-journal entry on a public journal. I love the paradoxical nature of life sometimes. Besides, if I really started using this thing I'd be bugging my friends on how to tweak it. And I'd rather talk to you about something constructive.

So. You know who you are. And if you don't, you probably do and don't know it and we should talk about it anyway.

Call me!

Princess Bride, of course! To be specific, Indigo Montoya says it to Wesley when Wesley wakes up from being dead. :)

PS Speed Dating -- not as much fun as it sounds.

Never done it, but I've heard about it... I admit it I watch QEye. Basically 30 guys/gals in same room every 3 minutes (or some other predetermined amount of time) you switch partners. Trying to find out the basics for each in that short time. You are given a scorecard and you rank each person you met. At the end of the day the cards are handed in, and the list of people that liked you that you also liked is made available (I'm assuming for a small price) and you can then pursue them at your leisure... Correct me if I'm wrong.

And this is why my main page is rarely updated, except with pocket fluff. I'll reply to these posts, but rarely put my own up... THe one thing that I have found beneficial though is to have a place that I can vent about the people that I would usually vent to. Mine is a secret page that noone else has access too, even the loved ones. Its sometimes nice to talk about the A$$holes that we call friends, but more so the friends that do A$$holicus things.

I want to snag an R7 rapier off of you at practice tomorrow. One with a nice long grip, and I'd like to experiment with pommel weights. Drop me a line if you do get this, and let me know if this is doable and how we go about the doing.

My lord Baron. I hear from the talented and charming [ profile] amergina that you might be able to aid me in learning to tie a turkish turban. Is this possible?

Many thanks.

Posted here, because you don't have an e-mail address: 8 Hunks of Hanukkah Rules/Deadlines.

We now have rules! Yay us! And here they are.

1. Pictures *must* be in by Halloween, or they will not be included.

2. Pictures must be in .jpg format, and no larger than 700x700.

3. No more than 4 pictures per Hunk, for the initial run. Additional pictures may be taken, but don't send them to me yet - if you're one of the top 8, I'll ask for additional pics to post during Chanukah. (I'm sending this not just to the Hunks who've yet to send me anything, but also to those who've only sent me one pic, by way of advising you that you can send more!)

4. TheFerrett, who's hosting this insanity, says "no buns or weiners". Aw. :( So save your full-frontal for those additional shots that I'll host if you're one of the top 8!

5. Send your pictures to hanukkah.hunks AT as attachments. Include your LJname. Guessing games can be fun sometimes, but not when there are several hundred of you. This is not my full-time job. :)

Feel free to ask me any questions.

Have fun, guys, and get me some pictures! :)

I absolutely love this! When I was studying for my conversion to Judaism I came across something that said misusing words was a mortal sin (paraphrased of course).
I enjoyed working with you behind the feast scenes of Coronation.

It was nice to meet you in Philadelphia at the art exhibit last Friday. Sorry I had to run! I have added you, and invite you to reciprocate.

PS: I am sending my hubby down to Durham next weekend. Woo hoo!

Everytime I see your name come up on Tasha's posts, I come by here and read this entry.

I can deeply respect a man or woman who has a deep respect for words.

Thank you.

Amen to the power of words. They can be vows, or pebbles in the wood, shining in the night, guiding out way home.

Great entry. :)
