Thanks. A lot of good advice that I'm going to do my best to use. And also pass on, perhaps, to my daughter.

This expresses my feelings after reading Good in Bed much better than my rant did. This even makes coherent since!

Thanks!

'course the only problem with not rewriting is you can't take credit that way, but I'll say you're welcome for, I dunno, reposting/uncovering it. ;)

I am perfectly willing to give credit to the author. He wrote it and deserves it. It is very well written indeed. Thanks for the original posting!

Np...it just resonated with me as the philosophy I choose.

I guess I temper it with a little bit of recognition that sometimes the IMMEDIATE past must be dealt with, losses must be grieved over...

But the general philosophy of reaching for the future by letting go of past injuries or negative experiences is crucial. Richard Bach said: "Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours."

You know you want to become bi just so you can add me to your harem.

LOL well...you know, while i definitely see myself as gay when i *HAVE* to define myself, and while my identity as queer is important to me, i don't actually limit myself by my lovers' gender. i've fallen in love with some men over the years. straight ones, only very rarely ::grin::

my long-distance harem...::sigh::...so many lovers, so many miles.

And don't you go calling me straight, Ms. "can't be bothered to read my friends' profiles."

oh my! actually, i didn't mean to imply that YOU were straight, just that when i fall in love with men, it's rarely with straight ones. i actually fall in deep, serious love (albeit usually fleeting) with gay men, but oh, my, i like to play with bi boys ::GRIN:: they're much more adventurous than straight boys ;)

as for falling in love with you, pete...well, maybe! definitely LIKE...you're too cute, you know. and funny and witty...LOL

::grin:: well, i'm not feeling too witty either...rather thick. went to a "madonna party" last night (yesterday was the release of her new album - a fact i wouldn't even know if i weren't the biggest fag hag in town LOL) at the "big gay house" here. a bit hung over - i almost NEVER drink enough to even feel a real buzz, so it kind of surprised me...i think it was those Incredibly Strong Jell-o Shots. anyway, i got home at 4am, got back up at 7am, took the kids to school, and now i'm going back to bed! thank goodness i have no real commitments for today...just an "i'll try to drop by" the GLBT awareness table in the student union "sometime between 10 and 3".

i'll be conscious later :)

when i was just re-reading your comment while looking over mine, i read "or something like that" and i flashed on the episode of friends where they're playing football on thanksgiving and chandler says "well, i’ve been preparing for that my entire life.....or....something about you that’s mean!"

::giggle::

random, i know.

I like randomness...I'm a random child of random parents...we're wont to say bizarre things that have little apparent context...

and find them highly amusing...
