Leviathan meets the Incredible Hulk

Hardest Mile

Posted on 2007.06.01 at 08:33
Warning! Wet, emo, blah-blah-blah.

Don't bother clicking "Play" if you don't want to see Jonathan the Drama Queen, and believe me, it ain't pretty.

Don't bother trying to cheer me up or lift my spirits. I'll bounce back, I always do, but in the mean-time, I have a perfectly good self-pitying emo sulk to enjoy, and anyone but the involved parties will just sort of irritate me.

I'm VERY proud of you. For coming to your "fuck-it" moment and still completing your mile. That says a lot.

Thanks, Jenn. You know better than anyone how much your support means to me.

Bah. If I were there I'd tweak your nipple.

Just 'cause.

Not to worry, pal. I'm slowly coming -- being pulled -- out of my funk. Thnks for caring. Thanks for your support. It really means a lot.

Thanks so much.

Yeah, I do know that. I just needed to make my own way.

Well, fine! Be that way! I'll just be forced to hug you back, and cuddle you.

Nobody is perfect - you don't expect it of other people and you shouldn't expect it of yourself.

Just do the best you can as circumstances allow and I hope things work out OK for yopu and your friend in the end.

Sorry, I appear to have failed to follow simple explicit instructions - hope that wasn't too irritating. ;-)

We're actually a lot better this morning. We exchanged e-mails yesterday, then IMs, and spoke on the phone, and we're good.

But it galls me that when she needed my help, I failed so utterly. That's not what The Hero is supposed to do, and don't we all try to be the Hero of our own lives?

Having just watched Spiderman 3, it appears that as far as anything emotional is concerned the Hero is supposed to miss the point entirely and be in line for a good slapping ;-) I'm sure you are much better than that.

As a true Hufflepuff I don't really want to be a Hero(ine) - far too scarey -I'll settle for third from the left at the back on the good guys team - and no red shirt for me either, thanks.

I'm pleased that you and your friend are good now - that seems like the important part to me.

I actually turn out to be a Puff myself, according to the fine folks at acciosortinghat.

Friendship things underwent further alteration, but are again, or still (I'm honestly not sure which) good. Different, but good.

Ditto all of the above. So there. And it's an excuse to use a favorite icon.

That appears to be the moccasin I should wear to breakfast!

Thanks, pal! I really do appreciate the support.

Re: Sigh, I'm afraid

Any minions I see at Wal-Mart are reserved for my friend J. Stephen York, who needs all the minions he can get for for his website, Minions At Work.

So, lacking good minions, I'll just have to take your hugs, and return them with squeezes.

Thanks, Mel. I really appreciate it.

Some times not matter how bad we want to make people feel better we simply can't. It might be our limitations; it might be that the world is being unfairly cruel; it might be that, that person has to sit with their pain to come out the other side stronger. But we are only human and can’t take away all pain.

What makes up loving people is that we know we can’t take the pain away but we try anyway.

Yey for not giving it to the fuck-it

But if I'm willing to shrug and say, "Ouelle!" when my friends are in pain and I can't do anything to help -- or, indeed, try to help, and make things worse instead -- what does that make me?

I'd rather be a man who hurts and agonizes over that failure than one who shrugs it off.
