A Time To Gather Stones Together | hlpflwthat's Blog
Well the full moon has passed. I'm hopin it takes a lotta crap along with it. Crziness here at EP seems to rise an ebb ... almos like the tide is lured by Luna.
This last round of crzy drama may have reached a new low - I couldn' say. I haven' been round much, jus stoppin in to check mail an answer the occasional WB scribble. I know that the drama reached it's slimy tentacles out toward a couple my dearest friends here. I am proud of the restraint they used, an not surprisingly, it paid off in the end.
Some have remarked "What has happened to this place?"
I can only say that it has grown, not allays in the proper direction - but not allays for the worse. There have allays been pious bitches an perverted wankers here at EP. On occasion, someone of bold nature an questionable character gets the crzy notion to announce themself queen or king. Havin been round the block here a time or two, I am often familiar with the newest emperor-du-juor.
This time was no exception, an for the mos part, the coup members were once members of my circle. I say 'once' because I have that goofy reach bout folk. It's jus a feelin, creepy at times ... almos like a curse ... but rarely errant. The cast memebrs of the latest drama were culled by intuition a good while back. Couple of em even questioned/criticized my decision to keep my circle small an tight.
Occasionally I have compassion for these drama queens an attention whores - especially the dim-witted among em. But the second or third time I see em drag their dirty laundry out into the puclic eye, I am quietly on my way to the 'Remove From Circle' button. These issues are best kept to the blogs in my opinion.
Also curious to me, is the inevitable impulse of the uninvolved bystanders ... to become involved. They choose sides ... stroke egos ... call for peace ... an fan the flames. Intentional or not, their stirs an stunts - their calls for an end to the proceedins, only serve to drag the drama further, widenin that spot on the stage.
What to do bout all this? Not a damned thing. I was lured into this crap not long after arrivin here. I stood up for an innocent - not realizin I'd picked a quarrel with one of the nastiest EP personas ever. She an her crew were fast an furious, but not particularly bright. Bullies an blowhards rarely are. I didn' exact any revenge. I merely assured her that she'd picked the wrong scab ... an then let the fire burn out.
That doesn' mean I'll never defend again - only that I've reached a point where I can discern between defense an drama.
I use EP for my benefit. All of you. You benefit me in one way or another, an I am indebted to you for that. I hope that I can be some benefit to you as well. But let's remember that this place is a tool ... an that some of the members here are tools as well. =) Use it for your benefit - whatever suits you.
