Whew! What a long thread to read! Minimus is the master at evoking comments from his threads. I can't even come close to that kind of talent. I spent 70 hours preparing my Beth Sarim essay and didn't get 1/4 the traffic that Minimus gets with a good title, and a few sentences and no substance (IMHO, anyway). Imagine that. I spent over 8 MONTHS learning and polishing the "Danse Macabre" to share that mere 11 minutes of music with the folks. I just do what I do. Minimus does what minimus does, and Minimus gets a whole bunch of reaction.. The populace reacts as they do. What we do doesn't matter. Antonio Salieri and Amadeus W. Mozart. If you knowing folks get my drift.
Now to the comments from the good folks:
: Sinky Panz,
: and Farkel because he's a huge smartass (I mean that in a good way).
True, and I take that as a supreme compliment!
: also like StinkyPantz and Farkel - SP becos she's got spirit, and won't be intimidated by arrogant men, and Farkel because he reminds me of what can happen to you if you don't get over your bitterness 30 years after leaving the WTS.
No one can say "" better than you can say "" without actually saying "", Prisca. For your talent in that area, I salute you.
: im just a little bit puzzled about why you seemed to single me out for criticism.....but i am inexperienced and still trying to learn the ropes here.
: nevertheless, i will stand by what i said.
: as far as aguest, well i just WISH i could meet her and have dinner with her - that would be a great blessing to me - i am glad for you that you have had that opportunity. it might be difficult since i believe we are on opposite coasts, but i do enjoy my fellowship with her here.
AGuest is one of the most loving, caring and generous people a human could ever meet. I know. I've met her and spent time with her. I don't buy her version of things, but surprisingly enough, we probably agree about more stuff than we disagree about stuff. She's my "little Sistah," and that's it about that.
:Prisca, as Farkmeister knows, has had massive impact in her own way.I know the lady personally and shes a warm and cuddly person in the flesh.
I could only help but agree with you, RF. We are so two-dimensional in this little world of cyberspace. I would venture that Priscilla and I would get along GREAT if we just sat down face-to-face and swapped spit with each other.
