    Thanks for the tip about the light, Kim. I'll keep my eye out, but so much of my shopping is online because it's easier that I'll probably eventually get a light from Amazon.

    Lauren, try not to let people with other opinions disturb you or get you down. Remember to use the IGNORE function as much as you want (although I never could resist seeing what people were up to) and it might save you a little grief.

    That's probably my issue. I can't help but read it, but then it makes me so upset because it's all one-sided, and then it turns into more drama than I had seen in high school!

    I'm way too sensitive about so much lately.. or maybe just all the time? lol

But now, everyone is constantly b*tching about the "who?" and the "what?" and the "she said, she said," and it just makes me so upset and heartbroken. I really love you ladies, and to be honest, ya'll are my friends and you give me a place to go when I need to talk.. but I'm just feeling like all of that is going away, all because we have a difference in opinion..
    I hope I haven't contributed to that feeling. I admit, I don't understand how 'the other side' sees things, but I genuinely like most people on here and hate none.


    I confess I was presented with a wonderful job opportunity today, and I'm going to see where it leads me, but it makes me sad. I really like my little routine and don't feel any ambition to change things. Not even for more money or higher job title. I don't feel any excitement (maybe that will come later?) and could literally cry about it if I thought about it much. I'm just gonna go with the flow and see what happens.

    You are totally fine, dear

    And yay for something different! I would definitely see where it takes you - you never know, it might end up exciting you! A little change is always good too

    I don't even look at debate threads anymore. I know they'll just frustrate me.

    Probably a good philosophy

    Sarah, I know this is gonna sound funny.. but every time I see you post, I start singing ABBA's "Mamma Mia." I tend to associate names with songs if the titles are the same or if they were around when a certain song played.

    A friend of mine knows this girl named Rosanna, and every time she replies to a post on FB, I always go "Meet you all the way.. Rosanna, yeah!"

    LOL. I chose the name because it's so cringe-worthy. I stopped getting the song in my head a while ago, thankfully.

    I love that song 'Rosanna' btw.

    Sarah, I guess you missed my post a few days ago asking if you were affected by the volcano, but I'm glad to see you posting!

    Sorry, I totally missed that! Yes, we're just fine. It's quite far away from us, and the village nearby was evacuated in time. I do have one friend who is stranded overseas because they aren't allowing flights at the moment.

    I confess that I'm ready for tomorrow to be over already.

    And yes, this place can be a snipe-fest sometimes. I contribute to it myself sometimes, but mostly, I remember that this is an online forum. It's for support, and sometimes we'll vent and have our differences. But you really can't take the crap too seriously.

    I am like Lydia and can't really put people on ignore either though I did it once in three years!

    I think that the problem is that being online, people are often more outspoken than they are in IRL.
    I know that I have a big mouth with people I know really well..basically a few friends and family. But at work, people don't know and think I'm kinda quiet and shy. And I certainly don't start up things like this with people I don't know. There you talk about the weather or sports or something like AI. LOL

    ARGHHH!!!!

    I just found out that I can't study the course I want through the Open University. For some reason that specific course isn't available to Iceland. I want to cry.

    Trying not to panic. There are a few science courses I might be able to do.

    The song Rosanna was ruined for me ever since I heard it was about Rosanna Arquette. LOL

    Sorry about the course Sarah

    I have never put anyone on ignore...even when I probably should have, LOL

    Phew. I'm done. There's still someone alive in there! And the procedure went flawlessly, the doc and hospital were great. Results by next Friday!

    (And p.s. For good or for bad, I have just as loud a mouth IRL as online. Just ask Lydia).
