And Here I Was Getting Tired Earlier...

There are a number of possible causes, but I was sure I wouldn't last past midnight, and yet here I am at 5am still going strong. My neck hurts though, but I'm going to blame that on yesterday's event, because I noticed the same thing the other two times as well. Things are going pretty much as I'd expect them to at the moment, but sleeping with that garbage bag on was not pleasant. Despite having the window open and fan on it's highest speed, I still ended up sweating, and the sensation of that plus plastic stuck to your body is not something you'd be used to feeling while trying to sleep. My back looked predictably nasty when took the bag off as well, but I was expecting that, and Naomi helped clean it up, so all that remains for now is figuring out what I'm going to do at work tomorrow. I do have a couple other random things to write about however, and I'll start with the ones involving pictures.

[a] Earlier (less than two hours ago), I thought to myself "I could go for some sort of snack right now", and after taking care of my back, went down to the kitchen to see what was available in the "stuff that isn't eaten cold" category. There were several mini pie shell things in the freezer, as well as some already-grated cheese and pepperoni in the fridge (the latter was diced, not grated, just to clear that up). I'll just make things simple and say that when you put those together and add a couple more ingredients (plus some baking time in the oven), you get these ^^ The only problem was not letting them cook for quite long enough, leaving the bottoms of the shells somewhat moist, but thinking about it now, they tasted like those McGriddle things you can get from McDonalds. Oh, and I might hear it from Naomi tomorrow, because I think she was planning on using the pepperoni and cheese to make more of the pizza stick things she's been quite fond of lately, but we're going grocery shopping, and thus can pick up more for her while we're out~

[b] Even though even less time has passed since I took that other picture, I can't remember what my exact intentions were for taking this one. It's there though, so look at my pretty desktop now that I've actually taken the time to find a matching wallpaper and visual style. Also, that's what the fonts in my LJ are *supposed* to look like. It was sort of weird using the computer downstairs the other night and having them look different than I'm used to :x If you want them yourself, look for Windows XP visual styles titled "LED" and "Shaded". For the last one, download and install Microsoft Office, or pick through the .cab files like I did until you find the right one. Or just send me an email. Would probably be much easier. Oh, and my cursor is hidden somewhere in that picture. Find it, and I'll buy you a virtual gift with one of my free certificates or something ^^;

[c] More things regarding the Secret Santa / Satan furmeet. I now have a medium-sized list of things I need to pick up at Real Canadian Superstore tomorrow for making cookies to take there, for one. Nothing that should be extremely expensive, but I picked out two recipes, and they both call for three cups of oatmeal, which seems like an awful lot to me :x Getting them there should, fortunately, not be a problem since I'm getting a ride with Deoge, but keeping them warm will be. They can always just be left out to come to room temperature though, and sticking them in the microwave is always an option, but I'm leaving that up to whoever wants one to do on their own. The second thing regards the post Madius made to the community earlier today. They have things to talk about openly? I have a feeling I know what they are, and I almost decided to post a comment that said "If you're going to bring these things out in the open and talk about them, I'd like to take the opportunity to bring up my wearing a tail outside as well." If you happen to read this, Cola, I don't care if you tell him that (I don't intend to though, for not wanting to stir up any more drama), but please mention something else as well. Not to be rude or harsh, but both he and you would be very kind to pass a message along to whoever has been saying things to either come to me directly, or please not say anything at all. I try my best to be understanding about those sorts of things, but it's quite difficult to do that when you aren't even being told to your face. And yes, I realize whoever doesn't like it (assuming there are others aside from Madius) may not want to offend me, but it's far worse hearing it second-hand.

[d] One thing related to the above that I forgot yesterday. I'm actually rather looking forward to summer this year, for when it gets too humid to even comfortably walk around outside with a t-shirt on. The words "indecent exposure" come to mind, but this year, I plan on at least walking home without a shirt in those conditions.

[e] If there was anything else, I can't remember what it was, and it's already 6:30 anyways, so it's time I got to sleep~

Comments

Usually my idea of dealing with community issues is that you discuss them together with the community and find a solution--which may not be the solution you want, but hopefully you can at least come to understand each other better, be less angry, and find some reasonable compromise.
*shrugs* if it comes up again, then I'll really be left with no choice. It's a sensible idea, yes, but I can't help thinking unless pretty much everybody didn't like [x], then those who actually didn't wouldn't say anything to save face.

Meh.
Yeah, there's a danger of that.

Ideally, people will respect each others opinions and be willing to make compromises to make each other happy, but that's not really human nature.

Depending on the social status of the person challenging you and how they want to do things, you may not have a right to question anything without facing ridicule and ostracization.
Not to get all defensive, but if it ever came to the point where I thought there was so much as a chance of being told "If you're going to continue doing this, don't come back", I would take measures to ensure that didn't happen. In this case, leaving my tail behind when going out with others. As for ridicule, let's put it this way. If they're that influential, I would hope they wouldn't resort to such things. Then again, as you said, that's really not human (or furry / whatever else you want to say in there) nature.

However, the problem here isn't a matter of somebody in a position of authority challenging me. It's that instead of coming to me and working things out, I had to learn from somebody else that they weren't the only ones who had a problem with what I was doing. If one of them happens to be somebody that's in charge of things though, well, I'll just have to wait and see.

(and by that I mean I could ask for the names of the other furs, but it would make more sense to do so when and if I end up being told to leave my tail at the apartment again instead of right now, when everybody involved has likely forgotten about it)

Edit: Added the word "problem"~
