Holy Crap, My Eyes!!
wlfdog

It blinds!! Gah... >.<

So I went in for my interview today. I think it went well. Hopefully I'll get a call to confirm weather or not I got the job within the next couple of days.

I also went to the Optometrist for an eye exam today. I hate being blind. Apparently though my prescription hasn't changed TOO much... only about a quarter lense change for each eye... though I think my right eye is a bit worse than my left one. They also put those drops in my eyes to dilate my pupils. Except they put a bit too much in my right eye, so by the time I got home I still had this one HUGE dilated pupil, while the other one had already started to go back down. It looked freaky. :-P

Hrmmm... Trying not to think so much about a certain issue that's come up. I hate it when I'm somehow the reason for dispute. :/ Or part of it anyway. I don't like it when people get upset over things that don't really NEED to be so upsetting... If things can be fixed, I would love to just try to help make everyone happy. :/ *flicks her ears*

Heh, at least you're not colourblind. It's a major roadblock when you're an artist. *pouts*
"Is this a good shade of brown to use?"
"Umm... that's green."
"God dammit!"

hehehe. I copied The Lion King onto an audio cassette, since we don't have a VCR at the cottage, and copied the LK soundtrack cover onto the cassette cover. When I coloured in Simba, I accidentally coloured his mane green.

Being colourblind sucks. =P

Well I could scan it, but that would be silly. That's what I get for using pencil crayons with no labels on them. =P

Shall I guess this dispute in question is one of those where you're standing there, sighing and thinking "Damnit, you people who are involved are so blind and not even seeing something so simple that would solve your issues! Open your freakin' eyes!"? I think I shall, yes. But, I share that wish, definitely, to just make everyone happy. It seems like so many want to make others upset and unhappy. Meh, I'm going to stop with this.

I wish I knew what the strength of my glasses is. I haven't gone for an optometrist exam in years.

What's with the "wlfdog" thing in gree -- oh, I get it. You just jab it into the color attribute of the font tag in HTML. I think mine'll be red with maybe a slight pink to it: betamantis

Anyway, I hope that dispute and the work possibility work out well.

Don't Worry; Be Happy

*chuckles* Can't say I wouldn't love to see you with those dilated pupils. I'd be playing tricks on ya' all day >:D

And as for the whole dispute thing, don't worry about it. No, seriously, don't. Even if you are "the reason" (which frankly, you aren't - more like an excuse) for said disagreement, you aren't directly involved. A dispute between two people must be solved by those two people, and outside interference usually inhibits far more than it helps. Just let things take their course and you'll be no more the worse off for staying out of it, trust me.

And even if you don't trust me (Meanie! ;_;) on that, then I'll provide my usual psych analysis to poke holes here and there for you to slip through. Just remember that they're big boys; they don't need a mediator. It's nice that you want everyone to be happy when all is said and done (though unlikely), but do try to remember that it isn't your responsibility.

People, regardless of their situation and station, are ultimately responsible for their own happiness :)

Yeah, I know. But still... can you blame me for feeling guilty about it?

Yeah, I know. But still... can you blame me for feeling guilty about it? <:/ I just don't like it, that's all. And I hope it gets resolved soon. I was dealing with it just fine and ignoring it until one side came directly to ME. I'll continue to ignore it and hope it just goes away, but until it does, it still won't make this unhappy feeling go away... *flicks her ears*

I hate guilt. It's such a stupid emotion. >.< Okay, no it's not... guilt is a good thing cos it helps you determine what's right and wrong (usually). I just hate feeling guilty knowing that something isn't really my fault. THAT's stupid. *smirks*

Can I blame you? OF COURSE I can blame you! For being irrational and illogical, for misinterpreting what I say, for being a complete drama queen and most of all, having a very pinchable butt. *pinch pinch pinch* ^_^

But you know me more than well enough to be sure I wouldn't. I'd never put blame on someone simply because of their views and opinions, much less simply because they feel bad about something. Take the story of Troy, for example. An excellent film if you care to see it (though it does deviate noticeably from Homer's "The Iliad"), it does hold an amusing relevance to your situation, from a few standpoints.

As the story goes Paris (the Prince of Troy) stole away the wife of Menalaeus (the King of Sparta), famous Helen and brought her back to Troy. When he finds out, Menaleaus got pissed all to Hell and ran crying to his big brother Aggamenon, who was essentially ruler of all Greece at the time, and asked for his help in getting Helen back. Now, Aggamenon didn't give half a crap about his little brother's wife, but had for some time been looking for an excuse to go to war with Troy, and agreed to do it. And the rest is History. Troy fell after ten years of war and its people completely obliterated.

Now in the film Helen is shown as feeling immense guilt all throughout the ordeal, because she feels that she is personally responsible for the war and hence, the annihilation of an entire nation. But is she really responsible? Aggemenon had been planning his war with Troy for years beforehand; it was only a matter of time before it happened. Helen just provided a convenient excuse.

So Helen feels guilty about starting a series of events that, sooner or later, would have happened anyway. Should she feel guilty about that? Probably not, but that's not the point. She feels the way she does just the same as you feel the way you do. Whether or not you *should* feel that way is irrelevant. Feelings, like opinions, cannot be labeled 'right' or 'wrong'; they can only be ill-founded or misinformed. So you keep feeling just the way you do and don't worry about it.

And just for the record, I NEVER said that ignoring the situation would do any good :) Frankly that's just a guarantee that the outcome will jump out of nowhere and bite you in the ass (hmmm... lucky outcome *grin*).

Personally I'd just keep an eye on it as it goes, but let the boys work things out between the two of them for the most part. Of course you can certainly react when someone says something to you about it (or "coming to you", as you put it), just focus on your own stuffs in the meantime and try not to seem like you're prying.

As for Guilt being stupid, I'd say you're close. Seeing as emotions have nothing to do with logic and intelligence, 'stupid' doesn't really apply, but like all of the wide spectrum of emotions it can be useful. It is always a good thing to be in touch with your emotions, but never a good thing to be a slave to them :)

*pats your shoulder and smiles* Overall, just relax, take everything in stride, and be your adorable self that keeps making me proud ^_^

No, but that would have been great. ;) Especially if it had the demon red-eye from the camera flash. :-p
