seen this question 20 times now, still can't answer it
whatever shows up, really
i spend 99% of my time thinking about:
how to do better $ wise, how much I'm stuffing it up (stuffing what up? well, pretty much anything you can think of), Someone Special (generally J), and whether or not I'm actually dying or actually pretty OK after all
if nobody minds getting glum for a moment, it would be interesting and helpful to me if you could recall
1) the last time you mourned the loss fo someone, or someone broke your heart
2) how long till you were MENDED, fixed, over it
3) what sorts of things helped you cope
Sometimes it takes a long time to realize the heart is bruised, but the ego is broken. I got over it slowly, by - excuse me - getting even. It took a couple of years to get even, and it does not feel like it was enough. It brought peace of mind, and certainly mending, but along with it came a kind of ruthlessness.
I continue(d) to be pleasant and kind to the idiot, and to all idiots, because it makes the world a better place. It irks me and I must have cocktails after I do it, but I know that it's for the better.
@MayKasaharawithalongtail i for one am a great advocate of vengeance, even if i personally lack the imagiation (not to mention courage) for carrying it out :)
I am able to behave decently to the idiot (and all idiots) because I escaped victimhood. I am neither humiliated nor heartbroken - I got even! Vengeance is highly underrated, usually by grim holier-than-thous.
1) heartbreak - about 5 years ago, though really it occurred gradually, over a much longer period of time. That was just when I definitively decided to walk away from what I perceived to be a negative relationship and start on a path towards healing.
2) I am still not fully mended and probably never will be. Things like this leave scars. I will say though that it is true that the pain dulls somewhat with the passage of time.
3) cut all contact. I initially thought this was cruel and extreme but really it's just part of self preservation. Things got much easier once I committed fully to a no contact rule. Also meditation. Visualizing that link and then visualizing myself consciously and intentionally severing and releasing that link for my benefit. Sounds silly but it helped me.
@aenea that's a great visualization - I do things like that too
I visualized the act of betrayal in minute detail: jiggling and unhandsome flesh, rivulets of sweat, the smell of their day-old underpants. After a while it became comical. It was probably more accurate than I first thought. It's still pretty amusing, five years on.
@ahorrasi 1) My mother-in-law died about 15 months ago after a long battle with cancer.
2) Several months, though still not over it. In many ways, I was closer to her than I am to my own mother. Over the years she certainly became a bigger part of my daily life than my own mother.
3) Knowing she's at peace and reunited with her husband after being in a lot of pain is a big comfort. Prayer. Work. And the Cubs finally winning the World Series, because she was a huge Cubs fan.
@taylor that is true, knowing ppl are in a better place, or the appropriate place for them helps
am very sorry for your loss :(
@ahorrasi, i was obsessed with this guy once and he cheated on me and i saw him talking to this other girl when we went to a pub together and a wave of red anger came over me and i literally put my hands round his throat and tried to strangle him. Im really whimpy and calm and full of rainbows and kittens usually so this was very out of character and didnt hurt him but now i completely understand crimes of passion. I literally just became red with rage. He just wasnt the right guy for me, thats all. Now i am grateful for all the good times we had together and happy i found my lovely french farmer.
We (my tribe) lost three of our elders this last winter, one right after the other. By the time the third one passed I was surprised to have any tears left to cry. I felt so tired from the weight of grief for a few weeks.
As far as getting over it...well....death is part of life. Its never easy to lose a loved one, but there is no alternative but to move on among the living, which is what your loved ones would ultimately want for you anyway. They live on thru us, so it behooves us to carry on.
I have a myriad of coping skills, from this large family, to a circle of friends, to yoga, to exercise, to art, to meditation, to long walks......long baths, reading, writing, cooking/baking, music......all manner of things that lift me or absorb me.
@beequeen so sorry for your loss :(
funny i was just thinking about that this morning, about how we just need to get used to and come to terms with death/dying and how a lot of what's killing the planet is the sick and bizarre human fixation on survival at all cost
Yes, true....that and the fixation on retaining youth or on looks in general, but that's really more of a Western and Western-influenced obsession methinks. I was watching TV with some of the kids in the family recently, at their house. I rarely see regular TV because I don't have TV at home, just a TV that serves as a monitor for when I get films from the library once in a while. Point being that I rarely see current TV shows or advertisements. So, I am sitting there watching this insipid show with them, that as kids they like, and I couldn't quite pinpoint what was weird and off putting about what I was seeing on the show and on all the ads. Then, it hit me: everybody looked SO artificial. This is what the rest of the world sees of America, as our pop (TV, movies, music) culture travels the globe. That artifice. And its what so many Americans buy into as well. That artificial "reality".
I was freaked out by how freakish the people on TV looked................I miss the days when people looked real.
@beequeen i know what you mean!!! the first time it realy struck me the truth of that (american tv fakery) was when i started watching lots of brit TV on netflix and saw wow, real looking ppl, not ness. 'young' or 'hot' or what have you, in real roles IE having romances, etc. It was a reelation - it made me want to move there for sure
how are you doing in re. infamous New Years Resolutions, or whatever pet project/goal/resolution you've formulated thus far? And what is if, it if can be shared?
@ahorrasi procrastination and distraction are winning here at pancake villa, but I am going to get things done, somehow
@wyverndust boy i know the feeling
@ahorrasi Hmm, many of my goals are longterm, so not noticing much difference yet, but still believe I can make them work before the year ends. Do need to step my game up and give myself a kick under the butt.
@rainbowssparks This is the first year I didnt make any resolutions usually I make a few, the only one I made this year was to laugh more, Im doing that!
But my pet projects are 365 Granny squares, I am little behind in that due to my trip to Bali for 10 day and also my crochet temperature blanket, well, stupid me got peeved at it so I pulled 93 days of temperatures out and re started it... Im currently back up to Feb 3rd.... ekkk!
@Queen Purrs Like A Kitten You are repacking yourself and starting again, so I'd say you are doing good. And Bali is not such a bad reason to take a break. ;)
@rainbowssparks it was amazing, terrifying, challenging so many emotions and feelings all rolled into one and I CANT wait to get back there.... but for now we are planning USA 2018!
@Queen Purrs Like A Kitten Sounds good, Indonesia is also still on my list. I understand the feeling of wanting to go back, but at the same time there is so much to explore. Choices, choices, the USA doesn't sound bad either.
@rainbowssparks USA has been on my hit list since I was 10yrs old. So when I was 35 I spent three weeks in Detroit and 3 days in NY, it just made me want it more, so I added the "See 50 states" goal, I am determined to do it too.
@ahorrasi I have a 349 day streak on Duolingo, I only have 20 more Disney movies to watch, and I'm down about 5 pounds (of the 10 I want to lose).
@spyrunner 349 day streak!!!!! mamma mia!!!!!!
what was the most memorable thing that happened to you yesterday, or in the past 24 hours?
@ahorrasi Memory is a funny thing, studied it in university. Usually we remember emotionally charged events in our lives, and often incorrectly.
I am pretty sure I will remember the client meeting I had last night on one of my jobs and how I had bad news regarding their budget and how I turned it around and saved it and shifted the client's mindset. If on Monday they get back to me and cancel the job, then . . . depends on the outcome. Either way, that was my most emotionally charged event of the last 24 hours and likely the one that will stick in my memory.
@ahorrasi I went to lunch with a friend. We're 20 years apart in age, but she gets me and I her in a way that few do. We hugged this time, which has never happened before, because we're both kind of restrictive about our body space.
@ahorrasi I received an email from NARAL Pro Choice Massachusetts about volunteering for Chocolate Madness in Boston, MA. At the Boston Cyclorama. In late April 2017. This was an event I volunteered in 2008-2009 back when I was pro-choice and did a lot of volunteering for breast cancer and other events. I think I want to do this and I remember what fun I had doing this in the early 2000's. So, I am going to make it one of goals and sign up.
@ahorrasi Discovering that a friend whom I thought would have my back during a meeting where some hard decisions had to be made and unpopular views expressed actually just sat there saying NOTHING while I took it on the chin by myself.
@beequeen ((hugs)) from here. That type of S*it is always a bitch to take.
@ahorrasi Well, most of my day was spent dealing with things that took way longer than I expected and just to seem to keep getting worse. Though I felt frustrated, I did not take my frustrations out on anyone and saw the humor in it all, as well as the bright side. I counted my blessings and gratitudes. It was like that all day long and unexpected and unplanned unpleasantries kept coming up.
I just relinquished everything to God, trusting Him. It's really God who helped me control my frustratedness and temper, to not lash out at anyone.
what was the last video/podcast you watched or listened to? (for me it was, for some inexplicable reason, this video of this Spanish Water Dog getting a haircut: https://youtu.be/yuWBNJrFE9Y )
@stephanie wut? what is she talking about on TED? I have to check that out now
@ahorrasi A Neurology Today podcast (over a week ago I think) that talked on these points: 1) Microarray screening of Guillain-Barré syndrome sera for antibodies to glycolipid complexes
2) What's Trending: video gaming in children
3) Topic of the Month: Neurology Today® paper on mitochondrial replacement
@stephanie Ha! I watched that TED talk yesterday! All credit to her for her honesty, willingness to be vulnerable by putting herself out there, and for her campaign to raise awareness of the devastating impact of 'shaming' on individuals x
@trishrn i've heard of Guillain-Barré but i forgot what it was
also what is mitochondrial replacement of specific importance to neurology? I though all the body cells had mitochondria? But i am not any sort of science smarts person so there you go ANswering this question would help me explain the TEDx chat the other day from the woman who claimed that by 'feeding your mitochondria' (a Paleo approach, per her view) you could dial back if not outright cure MS, Huntington's, etc. Terry Wahlis, I think.
@stephanie I read an article or interview with her on that topic. I thought she was quite well-spoken on the subject. We are so detached from others that it is so easy to objectify and humiliate others on a global scale...it's horrible.
what did you last eat? (me: orange. REalized I was low in the 'C department. Plus they're awesome)
@nicolasc that sounds amazing
@ahorrasi a croissant
@ahorrasi Two kinds of popcorn, tomato soup and a friendly salmon
What I shouldn't be eating especially late.
Chips and cookies.
kind of lost hope this is even possible. I've kept up different treatments for as long as a month all to no avail. On this goal mainly to see what others do and whether it works or not
@ahorrasi I managed to. Took a year to completely grow out, though.
@spatz what treatment did you use?
@ahorrasi Loceryl, two times weekly. It wasn't really time consuming.
@spatz oh i will have to look for that i haven't seen that
@ahorrasi It's like a clear varnish and needs to be applied two times a week. Takes longer, though.
@ahorrasi I think there is hope depending on the severity. Mine has been worse at times (during one period, my big nail felt weak and loose and ready to come off) and now it isn't great but I feel it could be managed and improved. I hope yours can get better, too. Will try to update as of next week and let you know if the treatment I am trying is helping.
@ExplorerSoul definitely let me know what you do
@ahorrasi Omg! I've got 2 and a 1/2 finger nails with this problem! I've been trying to clear them for the last 3 or so years. Its a tough thing to get rid of. Espesically when you forget to treat them everyday.
@1234567 sucks, eh?
@ahorrasi Yep. And the fingers hurt when I press down on the nail beds. Doesn't happen when I do it to my uninfected nails.
based on this: https://www.inc.com/elle-kaplan/7-happiness-hacks-to-make-any-day-awesome.html
"I'm sorry to be the one to break this to you, but nobody will take the time to shower you with praise. That's why you have to do it yourself.
Most people in business will only set aside their precious minutes if they see you doing something wrong, or if they want something from you. Sprinkling your ego with dew drops of praise is the furthest thing from their minds.
You're doing great things, so take the time to recognize it. By 5:00 every day, write down three things that you accomplished. They don't have to be life-changing, just good things that deserve recognition.
Re-read yesterday's entry every morning. If you're feeling low on confidence you can read through a couple of weeks' worth of your many successes and gain confidence and perspective.
Psychologists call this journaling, and it's a proven way to boost your happiness. Start using it today."
what i want to do is email things to myself every morning, written either once a week (scheduled for different times) or at the end of the day ("5"). I want to get how FREAKIN AWESOME I am every morning :D
1 dealt with the somewhat awkward moving trailer cost situation
2 it's allright that they are not here & that they did not want what you're selling
3 going to see person WEdnesday, and possibly persons tomorrow thus fulfilling social imperatives
4 in general quite grateful for all the ppl in life who have helped me, whether consciously or not, move forward. Ppl from relatives to random strangers who lent a hand. I do not feel I have deserved all this great help or whatnot but am grateful for it and hope someday i can help others
5 https://youtu.be/eZryJ6AWb84 Jennifer Warnes - A Singer Must Die
BONUS SONG https://youtu.be/pgo71qR8nN8 Oleo de Mujer con Sombrero - Silvio Rodriguez
other ppl were not as mean and hateful as for some reason i had decided they were being when (when will i learn to stop judging and assuming things about people i don't know, i just don't, God forgive me)
got good feedback re video project - also remembered what else i had to do for them
catharsis mixed with future visioning of hope (or something...) felt productive and at least theoretically powerful
the bread was eaten by all
was so happy to do this on clogs but, srsly, FUCK that site, man. I think it's mega jumped the shark. Weird PHP bollocks errors por doquier. I just hope that rat and others come on board bc i can't bear life without them
1) managing to recognize and innoculate self against doinkery in all its forms re/ certain 'too precious to be borne' folks
2) managed to REMEMBER somehow how it FELT to feel that aspiring to Greater Things was not only possible but inevitable - and in general feeling better than I had in days
3) spent nice morning at the cafe & managed to not overspend on overpriced but tasty hoohah in spite of serious hunger pangs (The sort that make you wonder how that sparrow would taste on the walk home)
4) DEFINITELY finished one video and most likely will be able to finish another before bed!!!!!!
5) David Bowie - Everyone Says Hi https://youtu.be/fmEnRtMaeCo
@ahorrasi I remember they had the same stuff last year on clogs. Oh well. I'll msg them once more.
@spatz i have to wonder if it's by design..... maybe they're just surrendering to 43things? but thanks for messaging them! I have in the past and received no response, so
@ahorrasi Me, too. They're strangely responsive now. Oh well, I can't imagine that the clogs site is more than a stand by side project for anyone. There are only around 2500 registered users.
@spatz I think I will write too then and ask what is the deal? Are we closing shop? Etc see what they say
@ahorrasi Let me know if they say anything. Should be interesting!
sort of UNCANNY how I have succeeded in completing and acing these oh so toxic habits. How does that happen?!?!?! nobody sets out to "be the 1st place winner in cosmically SUCKING at life HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!" yet that is how ti seems, looks like I've earned the diploma
well i guess i have the net 1/2 of my life to figure it out......... or die trying
this looks useful https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/295885 http://lifehacker.com/5954925/how-i-automated-the-boring-parts-of-life
ironic to have spent 10+ minutes looking for 'the perfect goal' and still coming up short haha
anyway will not leave here till i hae some semblance of video and other thing, se ha dicho
just listned to David Bowie's The Next Day first time ever, not going to lie, NOT my fave thing he came up with but I dfinitely did not know any of the songs on it, so i will come back later to report
just listened to a bunch of Joy Division. Wow they're really great! THe one that is haunting me right now is Love Will TEar Us Apart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuuObGsB0No (too bad i already had an L)
Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)
Crosseyed And Painless
"Drugs" (David Byrne, Brian Eno) 35:37

and now working on this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2y77QjFnuk
see which ones are the songs later
because why not
hah this sounds pretty sweet, who wouldn't want this
Mmm.. natto..... If someone 25 years ago told me I'd be eating this stuff voluntarily iwould have laughed at them. But if you're on a predominantly veg diet you really need to be eating this
annoyed at myself for losing a great half-and=half (Cashew based) replacement recipe!!!!!!!!!! J has FINALLY FINALLY agreed to try dairy free for a week but half and half in the coffee was the dealbreaker. I made the cashew thing once & it passed muster and now I can't find the recipe!!!!!!!!!!! bollocks
@ahorrasi Is this close?
1/2 cups raw unsalted whole cashews
2-3 cups water, divided (1 1/2 cups for soaking, the rest for blending)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
Pinch salt (optional)
Place cashews in a 2-cup or larger jar or container with airtight lid. Cover with 1-1/2 cups water. Replace lid and let sit at room temperature 4-6 hours, or refrigerate overnight.
Drain the water and discard. Place drained cashews in the pitcher of a blender. Add 1/2 cup water (you’ll add more in a minute), vanilla if using, and salt if using. Blend until completely smooth, about 1 minute, adding more water a couple of tablespoons at a time if needed to get it moving. Add additional water, up to another cup or so, until it’s reached the consistency you like. I go for a rich and creamy, half-and-half-ish thickness.
Use in coffee just as you would any other creamer. Keeps refrigerated in an airtight container for about 5 days.
@bob1623 yes thank you :D
exciting DIY protein powders (and apparently pea is the better one for me) http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Pea-Protein-Powder
http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-food/diy-vegan-protein-powders/ - this one has other super groovy recipes too
so my new project re this as alluded to before is to figure out how to optimize all amino acids, especially lysine
it will involve a project (just what i need another bloody project haha) becuase it'snot the most obvious thing
so here's a site with foods: https://wellseek.co/2017/01/31/vegan-diet-eat-8-lysine-rich-foods/
here's another specifically talking about grains and bread http://healthyfoodsandmore.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/BreadMaster.pdf https://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/high-lysine-foods.php
and here's a site to compare the actual amino acid compounds http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3066/2
the trick is to find foods with equal or higher lysine than arginine content, hopefully reasonably high protein foods (15% or more)
for instance ppl say pumpkin seeds are good lysine source but the arginine is higher, thus bad (arginine and lysine compete for some fucking reason)
after that i will make a list and make a point of including these things in my diet
+cauliflower, potato, +natto, tofu, *+black beans so far as on the list
and happily someone else did the job for me:
List of foods with a better lysine/arginine ratio, from the top to the bottom>
@ahorrasi Lysine has not been on my list - I'll have to go and check. How interesting.
@spatz it's the tricky dance about the essential amino acids, and to what degree they're available in foods, etc
am happy to have found more sources of info here in particular is a link to differet sorts of beans that are http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-016083000000089000000-1.html
@ahorrasi I'll have to read up on that. I've not given much thought to amino acids before. Sounds fascinating.
@ahorrasi Have you tried Braggs Amino Acid Spray?
@beequeen i've used the non spray kind a lot, all the time, is IT rich in lysine???? oooohh that would be sweeeeeeeet (actually, salty, lol)
unbelievably useful link http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4380/2
provides amino acid profile for all foods + link to complementary amino acid sources!!!!!!!
if there's a solutin to the lysine etc problem, this is it
already 1/2way thru the year
was having a good year, a remarkable year, a wonderful year but now
have suffered a personal heartbreak/loss and am having trouble recovering from it. Just someone who went away. IT hurts.
it is tainting everything good
also am quit smoking again, i hadn't in years and 2 weeks ago began again so am glad to be 2 days not smoking but damn that shit is hard, cried for like 3 hours yesterday. The smoking was covering up the pain of the loss so now am really feeling it.
so, nicotine withdrawal and heartache.. not pretty, lol
and then yesterday there was a car accident, in aggregate not as bad as it could be, so am trying to access gratitude & all that rot
but i feel just the heavy sad oppression of the Loss more than anything, you just can't play games with that.
@ahorrasi I'm sorry you're having such a hard time. Hope it passes and makes place for all the happiness you deserve!
@spatz thanks very much Spatz I intend to make the best of it, still keep working towards things, etc
@ahorrasi A great plan! Small steps to happiness.
@ahorassi Feeling for you... Keep going !
I like the idea of this goal. And for more than a conditional reason; i want it to be THE BEST YEAR in spite of what $ was earned, what friends were made, what inches were lost - IE without the dreary belt-notches we always crave to give our lives meaning.
I want it to be the Best Year Ever because enthusiasm was had, lessons were learned, challenges were mastered, things were achieved, limits were crossed, and consciousness was there rooting for everything as it came.
In the end: awareness. Awareness and acceptance, ergo, Best Year Yet.
it's only forever, it's not long at all
"No one can blame you for walking away
But too much rejection, uh huh...
No love injection
Life can be easy
It's not always swell
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl
'Cause it hurts like hell
But down in the underground
You'll find someone true
Down in the Underground
A land serene, a crystal moon
It's only forever
Not long at all
Lost and Lonely
That's underground, underground"
man, i've been falling down on the job. Got to get better at this
made up some for lost time today
@ahorrasi Got it,
Done super well today I think I hit 3
@ahorrasi Thank you!
and here's a photo of...
aaarg, another opp lost when went to bed at 4am and not wake up till 9:15!!!!!! will I EVER get to do this? It's not like i even want to participate, i just want to look at the thing
tomorrow my last chance for the present, let's see if it happens. Not so sure beause it is like 8 hours away and haven't gone to bed yet
missed my one chance this past Saturday bc was way too sleep deprived - hoping i get to this Saturday because it's my last chance (and hope it's not raining!!!!!!)
Just found out about this. Since generally am going to bed around 4am Friday nite (sat morning, I guess) this looks very undoable. However, a good chance exists that this particular Fri nite it won't go down that way which means TECHNICALLY I could do this.
got some good ones in today
I recall how we lived
On the corner of a bed
And we'd speak of a Swedish room
Of hessian and wood
And we'd talk with our eyes...See More
Of the sweetness in our lives
And tomorrows of rich surprise
Some things we could do
In our madness
We burnt one hundred days
Time takes time to pass
And I still hold some ashes to me
An Occasional Dream
yayf inally finished it
The Thin Man Dashiell Hammet
i was having loads of fun interacting on the popclogs site, but suddenly it won't allow me to log on, ever, because the PHP facebook whatsit protocol either broke or has been deprecated
oh well, I guess I'm meant to be on here now
@ahorrasi Lol they don't fix things over there... ever.
@hopeslife yes, theres only one bloke named Jon who ever showed any interest of ownership and i haven't seen him in MONTHS. Once I even wrote through the 'i want to advertise on your site' portal and didn't even get a response to THAT! LOL.
@ahorrasi Well I emailed him once back in 2014 and he did respond to me. I wouldn't be surprised though if the site will be shut down soon. He seems to have no interest in keeping it up. It's also why I don't use Facebook to log into anything. They can change something and break it.
@ahorrasi I can't remember my password on popclogs and I can't get the forgot password reminder email thing to work. I didn't want to create a new account so I guess I am done with popclogs for now
@wyverndust yeah i already had to create a 2nd account when i was having problems with facebook last year, NONE of the FB accounts work, and i basically ran out of email addresses with which to create accounts. Pity, bc I had a good thing going.
@wyverndust I think the same thing happened to me. I got locked out of one of my LastPass accounts, (bad, bad me!) and I could never get the "forgot password" thing to send. I was able to log on back when the new 43T first launched though, and no updates or notifications were showing.
@hopeslife It's good here!
I first learned about 43things.com in early 2005, at my job that I hated, when I was researching some stuff for my boss or someone. A 43things entry was in the top 5 search results, so of course guess what I did for the rest of the day, lol
at that pt in time I was, as said, in a job I hated, I smoked, drank too much, was overweight, feeling like I wasn't going anywhere in life, etc. I had begun a new relationship but who knew where that was going.
a lot thanks to 43things I was able to quit that shite job, go back to school, lose the weight, do a master cleanse, and years later, I did manage to curb the drinking and quit smoking. And oh, that relationship still persists after 10 year marriage now.
so this is why this site is important to me. I'm older now and weight is an issue again, $ is an ongoing issues, as well as general wellbeing, but this site always seemed a lucky rabbit's foot to me due to the previous good it brought me.
I doubt many outside of popclogs remember me because I was always changing my username and I dissapeared a few times. I like popclogs and will probably stay there but inevitably am glad to have this site again.
@ahorrasi Kudos for you for making so much progress though! Most people have this website just for fun, but you are a prime example of how being organized and prioritizing goals can produce positive results (going back to school, having a long term relationship, etc.)
I'm going to follow you and cheer you on your journey ahorrasi! :)
@nudgethecurmudgeon why thanks so much i feel loved, lol. I will follow too, didn't see this till today
so.... there's a new logo
(that's all I'm going to say about that)
@ahorrasi I'm not real fond of it personally. I think it looks strange xD I liked the one they had yesterday better. It was different too. I wonder if they are going to be changing it more often, or if they are just trying to find one that they think fits...
@kriskrossness I didn't notice the one yesterday. Was it a lot different?
@wyverndust - It was orange and pretty. Pretty similar to the one before, but bolder and didnt say beta any more
@kriskrossness cool I wish I had seen it. I have been operating on very little sleep. It's amazing I can type anything or function at all
@wyverndust Oh my, go get some sleep deary! :D
@kriskrossness that one already sounds beter than what I'm looking at now, i wish i'd noticed it
@ahorrasi Oh definitely, I liked it better. I wonder if they are going to change it again
@ahorrasi yep not liking it either.
Too much red.
@postcard Aye, I agree. I also don't like how the goal in focus on people's pages is red now. I liked the orangey color that it was. Its so glaring now. xD
@ahorrasi I like the new logo. The random redness does distract me, but I am sure I can adjust eventually.
@wyverndust I like it too, did have to blink a couple of times because it was so red, but I find it to be a nice colour.
@rainbowssparks yay! me too. my personal website has a lot of red
@wyverndust @kriskrossness @rainbowssparks @postcard my main objection is it reminds me too much of The Red Cross or the International Hemoglobin Society or something. For the 1st 10 times i viewed the page i had to convince myself i was on the right site
@ahorrasi do you think if they made the 4 or the 3 a really different contrasting color, then it would stand out more to not be a bleeding heart?

so i mean no dissing on the logo but i did want to mention
ok, that works now, apparently. Good
@ahorrasi obviously more Bowie! Funny thing is on my old 43 account on of my goals was.....Absolute Beginners. Why? because remember that everyone is an absolute beginner....be humble....try hard. Oh yes and consider yourself cheer bombed today!
@hhannah thanks so much hhannah ! Lots of Bowie love to you
