  •  But the last line of the diary ... (2+ / 0-)

    Recently, under what I felt was extreme provocation, I blurted out "Jesus H. Christ!" My lovely 80+ cousin heard, but did not speak to me for an awkward and unfortunate period of time.

    We must all know that sometimes language that's O.K. in one group can deeply offend others of another group. And something may be lost while nothing can be gained.

    Note to self: Watch my fuckin' mouth.

    Note to Chachy: It's even worse to offend in print.

      to express the same sentiment to:

      "Okay, I'm done. That took forever. I'm never writing a diary again."

      I very much understand that feeling; however, I've never written a diary this involved, with graphs and charts and statistics, so I appreciate what Chachy is feeling.

      But, yes, it would be wise to edit the printed words because a flame out over the last sentence would take away from the value and information contained in the body of the diary.

      For me, Mitt reminds me of Jeff Bridges in Starman. He's like an alien that hasn't read the entire manual. You know, he's going, "Nice to be in a place where the trees are the right size. -- Robin Williams on Letterman 26 Apr 2012

        ...and not much to get flamed out over.

        "Thou shalt not use His name in vain" is much ignored in our culture. If you feel insulted by it each time you hear it, you will feel insulted much of your social time out with people.

          to use he's name in vain, just don't call him a republican, he gets real pissed-off. The last time he was really, really mad he whispered in McCain's ear  "pick Sarah she's real smart".

          If a man claims to speak for god he will assure he is also gods' banker.
