I just got home, hung with a friend, got some coffee and chatted.

Now i have the radio on, trying to pay some bills....family coming over tomorrow to celebrate a birthday, not mine.

this is quiet time for me which i like.

I dont know why i said shoulder, i meant upper arm for the tattoo.
One problem is i cant think of what id like to get that im sure i will like forever, KWIM?

The FLu? wow, i had that swine flu last year.. that was tough.. on my back for 5 days!! wow maybe i wont get one lol

Sorry I dont know what sitar music is, but ill google it after i finish this.

Hope your homework is a subject you like at least....due sunday night? another wow lol

I hope you can sell me on keeping the iphone because just this morning i was looking at androids to replace it but the cost of $600 stopped me....so far.

One thing i hate is if i enlarge the screen to read a webpage the page is off the screen and i have to scroll back and forth to read it as well as scroll down of course. on my android the text would wrap it self to the size of the screen when i enlarged. Maybe there is way to fix that?

oh i almost forgot...
when you said you knew i wasnt straight in that other thread i got nervous for a second as if i was exposed haha.
Im glad you know.

A sitar is that nifty Indian guitar type thing. And a tattoo on your arm shouldn't hurt near as much as the one(s) on my feet did, even the first one that didn't hurt all that bad. I'm not sure, but I know what you mean, and I know how aggravating it is. On my Android, I could zoom in to ONE word per scroll, and it was still in order. On an iPhone, I would literally have to scroll from side to side if I wanted to do that. I still think the iPhone beats the android devices, though...just my opinion!
LOL! I'm glad I got you :P I enjoy my quiet time, too. Especially since in the healthcare field, everything is so hectic and crazy, you almost HAVE to take a ''breathing'' period once you get home. And yes, it's due no later than 2:00 AM Eastern Time Sunday >.> ...

It's sort of like they forget you're gay, and they could make a comment such as, ''I don't know why they let gay people adopt.'' LOL. As time has went on though, I've stopped caring less about what people say. They ain't gonna change me, and whereas I used to argue with people about adoption, or marriage,...now I don't even give them the time of day. They didn't earn the right to argue with me :D All of us here have the right as human beings to live happily and (hopefully) peacefully. If during the course of my life until now I've had to trim a few people out of my life for the sake of my own happiness, I've done it. Also, I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
Yeah, my friends are, they are great. My family does tend to be oblivious to things like that, and they don't sugarcoat anything either when they are talking. Let's put it this way, the 'f' word is the most used word in their vocabulary, followed by the other name for a female dog, lol. Anyway I know this because a cousin of mine is dating a black guy (we are all white) and they talk about it and say things that can be hurtful. I know they don't mean to say what they do, but they do it anyway, probably without thinking about it.

I really can't give you advice on one to do about your friend, just like Todd's decision of when it will be right to come out is up to him alone, what to do about your friend is a very personal decision. But, I've enjoyed coming to the boards so much and conversing with you all that today at work when my iPhone beeped to let me know that Captain had wrote something, I've decided I'm going to informally refer to us as the Disney Queens. Bwahahaha.
But, reading what you said made me think of a very emotional event, one that sort of ties into my coming out story, but I really didn't want to share it because I didn't want to freak Todd into coming out. I suppose all things being equal, I probably SHOULD share it. It's sort of like getting a tattoo (I have two, one on each foot...Flounder and Sebastian on my left food and Ursula on my right foot.) when anyone asks me if they hurt, I'm not going to lie to them and say they DIDN'T hurt. I tell them the truth. Flounder and Sebastian hurt like a cow ant biting me repeatedly, and Ursula hurt so bad I didn't think I'd be able to let the dude finish. Seriously. If my first one had hurt as much as my second one, I would've never gotten a second one! ...So, my reason for saying that is, I guess I can't candy coat my coming out story, and only ''hint'' on my mother flipping out. Without further ado,...(and this is for both of you!)
When I first moved to Bryan County, everyone told me that I ''had'' to meet Jessie. So, I started going to church and talking to her. Her and I had so much in common that it bordered on the freakish. That's what everyone kept telling me, ''You've got to meet Jessie, she LOVES Sailor Moon!''...Well, we became best friends fast. One of the times when my mother flipped on me, and then went off to work, I called Jessie crying. I always told her it was the first time that I ever ''needed'' her. I mean, I used to skip school to stay up and talk to her all night on AOL (it was middle school, and early high school...). Anyway, for ten years you couldn't separate us. Her father IS a preacher, but aside from that, ... One time after she first got her Mustang we passed him on the highway and I had to hold a magazine over my face, so he couldn't see it was me.
We moved into a big white Edwardian house downtown, and didn't have internet hooked up yet. I actually went up to her work and asked her, ''Why haven't I heard from you in two weeks?'' and she told me check my e-mail. I had a feeling ''something'' wasn't right, you know? Anyway, a long story short I was running all over this old house looking for SOMEBODY'S wireless signal with my laptop! After I finally found one, I was able to begin the most painful break-up since Diana and Charles. I mean, she wrote me a full essay on why she couldn't be my friend anymore. And, all because of something I couldn't help. And to further turn this into a bad Dr. Phil episode, she KNEW I was gay before we even got really close! I felt like I was getting a freaking divorce or something, it was horrible. To compound it all, my four year long crush/friend type thing came out the closet to me the very next night(that's another story, for another time...!).
Everyone told me I looked pitiful those first few days, but me and Jessie were best friends for ten years. Not the immature ''middle school'' best friends that write each other notes, we had matured into what I would consider my first real ''best friend'' as an adult. I think that the concept of ''best friends'' sort of evolves, you know? At first, it's something of an obsession to have that sort of relationship that you can proclaim to everyone, so-in-so is your BEST friend. Slowly over time, I think it evolves into a silent ''first among equals'' status amongst all your other friends...? I sincerely hope I'm making sense at nearly 2 AM. So, after laying in bed crying and looking ratty for a few days, I got up and decided to just screw it.
We eventually made up, but it's truthfully about like two divorced people being cordial when they see each other in public. That's about the extent of it. I'm going to church for the first time in YEARS to hear her sing for the Christmas concert. And you know what else? Everyone that knows about the situation still doesn't know how I can be cordial to her. They tell me I don't need friends like her - and I don't. However, she did something for me that no one else will ever have the pleasure of doing. She sort of laid the foundation for me to be able to say ''LALALALA off'' to people and walk away when they start that stupid noise up.
So, my reason for telling this story is to make some sort of effort in helping both you and Todd, Captain. For your situation, if you feel like your friend will never change, then I'd slowly start the separation process now, so it only hurts a little versus letting it drag on so it hurts a lot. Or, maybe start branching out? Like, just not be as close? HOWEVER, on the positive side, if you think all she needs is an adjustment period, ...then be patient and give her that, maybe your story with her will be a 180 with mine. At least on your side, she's emphatically stated that she has an issue with it and doesn't blindside you ten years later! LOL. That's one thing that I can always laugh at when it comes to the Jessie issue, ...it took her ten years to decide she doesn't like gay people? Oh well. I hope my attempt at group therapy about all of these subjects is worth me staying up this late typing to y'all about it! Now, if disboards would only make an iPhone app,...I love getting an e-mail saying that someone's replied to a thread, but it takes forever to load up on my phone, so I always wait until I get home to actually get on the boards. I always end up staying up late doing homework though, and then...you know, if I type any longer, I'm going to get banned. LOL. GOODNIGHT!
Ouch, that sounds painful. I have actually had friends do that to me too, only not because I am gay but for other reasons. It really sucked but I got over it because if they couldn't put up with one stupid little thing then they really weren't worth it. But with a relationship like you had I could understand how that would feel.

I very much appreciate you writing your very personal story.

I wish i had the nerve to be as open. WIsh i had the nerve years ago.
My life would have been so different. I guarentee there will be plenty of people i will never ever tell.

That must have been tough reading her email. 10 years? wow. Im sorry

And yes your description of best friends is so spot on. you seem wise, new friend!


I so appreaciate you staying up late and starting over asfter you hit the back button too. Its nice to be able to talk to someone about my feelings and stuff with out feeling scared or nervous or insulted.

And no joke, i ve been thinking about getting a tattoo and have asked so many if it hurts. I want one on my shoulder or across my back.

I didnt know you can get emails when there is a reply. Thats cool
I also have an iphone but im not that fond of it. My android was much better.

I hope you enjoy the Christmas concert.
Id also like to hear the other story when you have the time.. the four year crush one.

You really sound pretty together.
Is allen your first name?
Hope todd and you have a freat sat night.
Sorry I'm late, did have a good Saturday night:D Anyway I don't have a tattoo but my sister does on her leg right above her ankle. She said it didn't hurt just tingled a bit. Everyone tells me that the worst place to get one, pain wise, is any where on the foot. Which is probably because there isn't much padding there. If I got a tattoo it would definitely be a Chinese dragon of some kind, a mermaid, or a disney villain, preferably Maleficent or Ursula. Hope you both have a good Monday

Todd, you have my full sympathy when it comes to homework...! I'm so tired of homework and work...the only words of wisdom everyone always gives me is, ''But, it's soooo worth it in the end!'' Well, that's true...but it doesn't make me feel better now >/!
My Ursula hurt sooooo bad! To make it worse, I have to get them touched up already, because some of the ink already came out. I'm putting it off for as long as I can :O!

Sometimes the lazy in me wins out haha

You know, the last place I worked for would take people's PTO days before they took their sick days. I thought it was down right illegal, but... that's Effingham hospital for you :P

Hey guys, just thought I would let you know I have started posting my trip report in the regular forum for trip reports in case you want to read it. It is more of a picture report than anything right now, lol.
