brightpearl 07-23-2007 01:43 PM

I think everyone is probably waiting for more info, or hoping that someone will pinch them and they'll wake up. :o

Peregrine 07-23-2007 01:47 PM

Fine, I won't lurk. But damn it, I'm going kicking and screaming.

Online Squabbles

Ah God! The petty fools who race
To shriek and sweat in pygmy flames
And fill indifferent cyberspace
With incoherent language games;

Who hate each other for a phrase
And do their little bests to spite
Their interlocutors in frays
That even lightweights think are light;

Who strain to make shrill voices heard
And just to get attention will
Devoutly swear to whatís absurd
Or swallow othersí poison swill.

We need good-will to disagree
Agreeably if we would speak
When reasonís lost in passionís fee
Or rage makes resolution weak.

Since I, too, speak before I think --
Or think Iíve thought when I have not --
And throw in even the kitchen sink
Instead of the towel as I ought,

Iím sorry, then if I have played
Too fast with slow, or slow with fast ones --
And hope whatever nerves Iíve frayed
Were not somebodyís very last ones.

Yeah, lately it's seemed like I was losing something every day, and this should just be one more thing on the list, but..


My last nerve? I've been borrowing them from others on credit for weeks.

Nicely done Marcus.
It's bright moments like these that I may miss the most.
