People still post here [Dec. 7th, 2011|05:10 pm]
On a lark I wanted to see if I remembered my LJ password. Imagine my surprise when I saw a bunch of my old friends who I haven't talked to in a long time are still here and active.

I guess its a sort of like not having object permanency only about friends. If I don't see you you don't exist. 

Well I guess I "saw" you and remember how much I miss you all. So have a happy Holiday this year and love to you and yours,

Son Files Harassment Charges Against Mother for Facebook Posts|Channel 7 News [Apr. 7th, 2010|04:03 pm]
There is a news story about a mother hi-jacking a sons Face-book and his suing over it. http://www.katv.com/news/stories/0410/723100.html

But that's not what I want to talk about

The comments are bounce from both extremes from "Parents should be spy's" to "respect your kids" but one comment really resonated with me.

I remember when I was a teenager I became suspicious that my parents were secretly reading my private letters (pre-email days over 20 years ago now) that I was posting to my friends in another town, so I devised a way to check if they were or not without their knowing, and my suspicions were confirmed. I remember not only being extremely angry with the invasion of privacy, but also particularly the underhand way in which it was invaded. After that initial feeling wore off after the first few hours however, what remained was a feeling of disappointment in them that they would be willing to go behind my back like that. My feeling at the time was if they are going to attempt to learn about my personal life without my knowledge in any event, then I was not going to make it any easier for them than need be, and promptly stopped sharing any information whatsoever about my personal life with them, from that point onwards. That went on for a few years, but then I guess as you become an adult old habits die hard. We're all still civil to each other and love each other and all - but as an adult they're still not really privy to the details of my private life, and havn't been since then. Trust is a two way thing, and once you lose it, it'll usually stay lost.


I think that's the point. If you don't trust your kids to the point that you have to spy on them then you don't get to be surprised when they don't trust you.

Be involved with you kids, Talk to them, take a interest in them, but once you cross the line and break the trust bond then *poof* you got nothing.

Thoughts of Baycon [Jan. 12th, 2010|08:47 am]
Many of my friends are involved in Baycon, and if you don't know the story you can look here kshandra.livejournal.com/1216029.html for the story.

I stopped going to bacon shortly after the move to the new hotel, for me the Drama to People I wanted to see ratio got out of wack. I worked for them one year, and swore I'd never do it again. The experience was unplestent. I've have worked for Furcon and Silicon and have always felt accepted and loved from the moment I walked in the door. Baycon staff, with some exceptions, as far as I could tell spent most of its time deciding who was "in" or "out" of which clique.

as for Michael Siladi, I'm not claiming to know him well, I've meet him a few time when our social circles crossed, I don't know the truth of what the people who walked out said, But I wouldn't buy a used car from the man. If you know what I mean.

My advice to the everyone who quit is move on, there are plenty of cons out there. Silicon and Furcon would both love your skills and knowledge.

and my condolences, the smell of burning bridges is never a pleasant one

Random geek thought [Sep. 9th, 2009|12:22 pm]

In the original Spiderman origin story Peter Parker creates the web fluid and shooters in high school. If he was always so short of money instead of trying to get on TV why didn't he take that formula to Stark Labs and say "Hi I have a patent on a instant epoxy that hardens in contact with air, is as strong as steel and yet fixable enough that you can swing from it oh and these shooters can make anything form a line to a net.
Please give me a grant, a lab and a big paycheck to create more cool stuff.

Your friendly neighborhood super scientist.

Or just throw it open and see for bides more, Tony or Reed. Of course if he wants to study abroad I'm sure the Latveria institute of technology would be glad to credit his AP classes towards his freshen year and give him a full scholarships.

Anyone else want to join in?

The dreaded F* word [Aug. 24th, 2009|02:42 pm]
Let me preface this by saying I'm not talking about "Drooling down your front and talking to your boobs" when I say "hitting on". thats just being creepy

I was reading a friends FaceBook wall. She mentioned being tired of guys treating her like meat and hitting on her. Another friend chimed in with a similar experience about not being able to have any male friends because they all hit on her.

So I got to thinking, Why? I know I'm guilty of this, and so are a lot of men. I have a theory (no its not a dancing demon). Its the dreaded F-Word!

There seems to be a window of opportunity when you meet a woman. if you don't "make a move" within that time frame your in FRIEND land with no hope of any kind of romance. there is nothing more frustrating then hearing the words "I could never go out with you, your too good of a friend". 

I don't think its that men are incapable of havening deep friendships with women. I know some of my best friends are very attractive women (and you know who you are ladies). I think its more of we want to make it clear that we don't want to JUST be friends before the window closes for good.

Maybe if there was a road out of friendsville and back to Romance land we wouldn't feel the need to jump strait into hitting on and take our times to be your friend first.

as usual please salt my posts to taste.
