12:04PM - Noob!
Hey. Noob here, planning to attend the event this weekend. Was wondering what time I should try and arrive so that I am not all alone waiting for someone to show up, yet can get help with making a character, but not be so much "In the way".
Hope that makes sense.

Hi. I wanted to introduce myself for good measure since I plan to come out in February.
My name is Kelli Wurm, I go to Clarkston and I'm 18. I'm a senior and I have no friends ... lolz. ^_^
I heard of this through Mike White, and he has convinced me to come out to experience what you do.
It all looks extremely fun, so I am excited about coming out. :)
If you have any questions about me, feel free to ask. Can't wait to meet everyone this February.

ugh, work. but i'm home now.
god i had fun at sl. jim is my hero. seth is a funny man. and plot went crazy. seems like their job i guess.
i'm kinda tired of EQ for the time being. but if you'd like to try this new game will and i are playing it's called knight online. it's free and you can download it here.
Okay, silly story of the day, which probably only Jim, Andy and Justin will understand, but I'll share it anyway.
So...I was at work today at the foundry here in Plymouth, and I just happened to notice that our new ShellCore machine we'd had brought in last week was produced by ISC Foundry Machinery out of Redford, MI. That got me thinking about the Redford Crew, which then of course led me to steamboat....and I busted up laughing. So...umm...yeah, that's my story. Thanks for the laugh guys, you know what I'm talking about. :)
Keep kicking like a steamboat,

You won't read this because there are no pictures, I'm not 5 and it has nothing to do with me wanting to sleep with you.
I just woke up from a terrible yet oddly realistic dream about someone and I feel like I'm going to vomit. Everytime I think about I feel sick to my stomach.. they could get away with murder and do. I don't know if it's jealousy or what.. honestly, I don't think it is because I really just don't agree with any of their ethics. I don't believe in using my body to get attention. I am tired of this over the top cuteness and/or overtly sexual nature that men desire for what ever reason.. what ever happened to interesting, thoughtful articulate women? I hate that using your sexuality is the main source of recieving any recognition as a woman in this circle of friends. (note I said main source, not only) Shame on the narrow minded hormone driven men but really shame on the idiotic women who feed into it.
Personally I've fallen into it too. I thought, wow.. this attention feels great. People like me. It's a phenominal feeling to think people adore you. And then I felt like I had just sold my body. Terrible. If people aren't going to pay attention to what I have to say because I'm not skankin' it up.. fuck them. I don't want it.
Another thing that pisses me off is cuteness. I know I can be the fucking queen of cute and it enrages me. Not that I think I'm hot shit.. I don't... it's just been so rewarding to not be a raging feminist with a brain and say things of little value that people pay reward with smiles and hugs.. I dont even mean to most of the time. Its become second fucking nature. God I'm sick of it. I'm sick of holding back. I'm sick of pretending. I'm sick of the girls who've taken away my right to be strong and intelligent by starting this hording of male attention with their bullshit sexuality as though it's some type of competition. It's really not..
And let's face it.. it is a male dominated group. They like it when you're cute and bubbly background noise. I know because I used to get way more attention from you guys when I would talk about sex than any other time ever. I had way more friends when they thought they could get a piece of ass. It was great not to feel alone all the time.. until I realized that I still did feel alone.. at least mentally.... When Andy and I weren't together I had all kinds of these people as "friends.." Now that were together.. they're fucking gone. And yes, I'm disappointed at the empty promises of "I really care about you as a friend..." but I feel better off without it. I'd rather know that my lack of real friends is due to me not giving it up then to have tons and know they're really there for potential ass. (why are girls sluts and guys hot shit if they sleep with someone?) I'm fine with having an openly sexual personality.. that doesn't make you a slut.. acting on it does. MALE OR FEMALE.. but I'm not going to use it as a means to get ahead in life.. (oh, and fuck halloween costumes for women. I went shopping today for a costume and everything is "sexy nurse," "sexy army chick,""slutty pumpkin." What the fuck is that bullshit?!?)
I'm tired whenever I'm in a heated debate about something (esp when I'm right about something) ... it's refuted with... "oh, you're just a crazy girl." Fuck you. I'm tired of this mysogynist crap. You're scared of being beneath anyone.
I'm not fucking cute.. I'm not a social butterfly.. I'm not a pretty little girl... I'm not the virgin mary and I'm not the slutty bitch on you're jerk-off magazine.
This doesn't apply to everyone. Not all men are like this. Not all women either.. but a good fucking majority in this part of town. If you're offended.. good. I am too.

There are three reasons for writing here today and the first reason is my desire to get this forum going where people who are involved in SL can discuss everything from their gaming ideas and opinions to their personal lives without worrying about the family game/official message board rules.
There is a bunch of topics on which I would like to start a discussion--girl gamers vs. gamer chicks, ideas about the new camp, helpful sewing/costuming/larping ideas and many others that I can’t think of at the moment.
The second reason is that I do not have another live journal account (this one is free) and I am thinking I want to keep one of these “public diaries” just for fun.
The third reason is that I feel very strongly the need to comment on something that was brought to my attention in someone else’s journal that is VERY close to my heart.
But the third reason requires my explanation of my feelings on the first two.
So here goes.
My introduction to the live journal thing was through my daughters (all three of them) who “shared” (either by reading them to me or sending me links) information that they felt was humorous or interesting or necessary to my existence. I do not know if they realized at the time that I know just enough about computers to save the links. That means I can read their journals, their friends journals, their friends’ friends’ journals etc. Mostly the things I read were silly, and harmless or a lot of teenage angst. Mostly, I didn’t read them unless they were pointed out to me for some reason or another. (I don’t really feel the need to “spy” on my children-they are usually good people and smart enough to stay alive which is the most important thing to their mother, of course) At one point, one daughter who was hooked up to my best friend’s daughter’s journal saw something that she felt I might need to tell my friend. I thought long and hard and decided to stay out. Eventually, all turned out well and I was glad to have let my friend handle it in her own way without my interference. Another time, one young woman sounded so seriously suicidal that my daughter and I decided better to tell the parent and be wrong then hold back and be sorry. Again, it all worked out for the best. And, of course, I am well aware of situations where simple comments or information gives rise to big nasty discussions and anonymous cruel remarks, and writers' and readers' feelings and relationships are hurt forever.
And the reason I have seen some of the current stuff is that someone, whose intentions I believe were sincere, sent me a link to someone’s journal that had a comment they thought I should see.
So why write a journal? And why read others’????
On one hand, writing in a public place like this elicits some of the most wonderful honest and kind remarks and wishes from good people, some useful information and much entertaining silliness. On the other hand, it also invites hurtful comments from unhappy nasty people, busybodies who mean well but don’t really understand the situation or just plain old troublemakers. (Jessalin and I are still laughing at the person who felt the need to tattletale about a party here-It’s so silly that we are sure it must have been meant as a joke!)
Knowing that other people will read my words, I doubt very much that I will write my truly inner feelings. Those are saved for my real “friends” not my good acquaintances or my gaming buddies. (The difference between those is a good discussion for later!) I might start a discussion for fun. I might vent a little anger about my bad car karma. I might dispense some information (or even some of my elder human wisdom! teehee) I might tell silly stories of life down on the garb farm. BUT I really don’t think this is the place for true full disclosure for ME. Other people might want to do that if they find it helps them sort out their problems and feelings. I really have no opinion on other people’s reasons-they are all valid for themselves. We all do what we need to do. The trick is not to run rampant over what other’s feel they need to do OR let others run rampant over our own hearts.
As for reading other peoples’ live journals, I admit to plain old nosiness, a need to fit in (even at my age! hahahaha) and my overwhelming desire to KNOW EVERYTHING that’s going on around me. Oh, and maybe finding a little help and a little hope, and a little insight into my little world.
Okay, with all that said and with the best of intentions, PLEASE leave “our” children out of this!!!! Some of us have another life besides gaming which is first most important to us.
YOU ALL KNOW what I’m talking about.
I don’t care how much someone dislikes someone, but threatening or hoping for CPS to take a child away from them is one of the meanest things I can think of. NO ONE deserves that just for your distaste at their lifestyle. PLEASE think about what this would do to the child. Even being investigated by CPS is harmful to a child’s well-being. IN MY OPINION, someone better have pretty good suspicion of abuse or neglect before they even mention calling the CPS.
So just because you don’t agree with someone’s version of a relationship, this doesn’t give you cause to judge their parental skills lacking or a reason for calling CPS. If you don’t want to run your relationship that way, FINE-it doesn’t make everyone else wrong. If you don’t want to raise your children that way, FINE,-but think about how you would feel about interference and comments from others when it’s your turn for a family. And if you feel the need to judge others in private or you MUST put it on the public diary network-be prepared to be slammed for being uninformed and off-base, at least and being cruel and vindictive at worst.
No one knows what is between two people (unless they share, of course, and NO, that was not meant as a pun). And no matter what the politicians want to believe, no matter what the government thinks they can legislate, people make their own private “deals” when they come together in a relationship. Just because it wouldn’t be your choice, it doesn’t make it detrimental to raising happy healthy children.
One of the reasons this pisses me off SO much is that I have endured many comments from people (even some who pretend to be my buddy to my face) about how my children are faring with a mother who has a boyfriend who is younger (get over it, people!) or a mother who is involved in 8 of the top 10 strangest hobbies. I EXPECT this from MY parents, but some of the meanest comments have come from SL people. MY children are fine and smart and happy and healthy (okay, so they are geeks but there’s that acorn thing). They work their butts off in the kitchen for fun to support the game. If people don’t like me-I am really old enough (finally) to NOT care. BUT my children are old enough to hear some of this. AND I’m not just talking about the ones who can be there on their own.
IF, I ever decide that something that someone says will really hurt my children-I WILL be gone from the game in an instant. AND I know the child being discussed isn’t reading live journal yet, (no matter how smart his parents think he is! *wink*) but there is nothing to be gained except pure hatefulness, (towards oneself as well) by bringing a child into an argument.
So PLEASE leave the children out of all of this. No game, or feelings about a game, or feelings about someone who plays a game, comes NEAR to our children’s importance to us.
BUT go ahead, and pick on Brian if you want-he’s a big guy-he can take you….I mean it!!! (Sorry BG, I couldn’t resist!)
September is my turn in the kitchen-see some of you in Sentinel.

Just wanted to say hi, and that I've added just about everyone here to my friends list. For those who don't know, this is Christie (AKA Luna, Mackenzie, ect.)
So yeah, feel free to add me. For the most part, my journal is Friends Only.
(Disclaimer: My journal is my own... it's my little space on the web. It reflects my feelings and thoughts at the moment I wrote them and does not necessarily mean anything else. I don't have to make sense there, and I'm allowed to say whatever I want on MY journal. May include swearing, complaining, and who knows what... Just thought I'd let you all know.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled community.)

I definitely enjoyed the elves
who brought the chocolate,
I about died laughing in the kitchen!!
That, and the cup game
was my most entertaining
happening this weekend.
PS. I like boys...
many of you have me on your friends list so have already read this but posting this anyways because it shifty stuff
cool stuff at shifted was throughout the day of saturday, NPC’s were bringing food up to the kitchen. Not real food, but like playing as if it was. There was a goat that brought up cheese, goat cheese, elves that brought up chocolate, chocolate, a butcher with a pig, ham, and brought him into the back so people couldn’t see him, and preceded to pound on the wall so it would sound like he was killing it. There was someone who brought grapes and potatoes but you know what? I cannot remember who they were so all is good I guess. later was entertainment which wasn't too bad, but not as good as last years show with the chick that had a skintight material that looked like scales, and was all painted up to look like a snake. Now that was pretty cool. out

So I belong to this group called the SCA (the Society for Creative Anachronisms), which is a Medieval reenactment group. As course would have it, Folk singers become known through the group. This man Steve Macdonald is a Folk singer who wrote a song about The One Ring. I found it rather interesting. The quote on the bottom is from a member of the SCA that knows this Folk singer, and sent out a kingdom e-mail about him. Check it out, I think it's very awesome.
He said that he was thinking about who was chasing the ring: Gollum, Bilbo, Frodo.. and Sauron no less than the others. Which is stronger the Ring or the Eye? He wrote the song from the Ring's perspective.
**sorry for double posting this for those of you that have me on your friends list**
