My mind is going to explode - a world of possibility
My mind is going to explode
So for the past 2 hours I have, and still feel a bit (I think getting up and eating something helped) like I'm going completely mad.

I swear, I think that some employee decided to make a batch of "special" rice crispie treats at the bakery a few doors down from the Movie theatre. And I'm not talking marijuana - I'm not quite sure what it was but I definitely felt like something was in my system and running through my veins.

Either that or someone really close to me is having a bad trip or something.

I'm going to test my theory out tomorrow when I finish the rest of the rice crispie treat.

Somewhat side note: How well does someone need to know you, or rather how well so you need to know someone before you would feel comfortable with them calling in the middle of the night if needed? Or, even better, to come over or have you come over because they need to be around people, at least one?

I hope everone is well

I like this question and I am not sure of my answer. Some people I almost knew after maybe two meetings that this would be okay if it was possible (like Maureen), others I am still even unsure of (like Alex) and some it took a damn long while and years of friendship till we reached that level (like Alex).

In terms of our friendship... I would feel that you wouldn't be weirded out if I had to turn to you, but I think YOu would possibly not be as ready to have to turn to me... I am not sure... this is something brought up that I would love to have a continuing conversation about.

We shall talk soon, I guess..

Hope all is well with you and that life continues to treat you well. THings here are stressfull and insane, but I find my enjoyable, relxation (which can actually mean going out and partying) times... if I didn't god, I'd really start losing my mind. LJ post about this coming sometime during Monday. Too exhausted to type up about insanity of father and things I have done to keep sanity (purchasing material items and going out with friends and enjoying self).

i love your logic!

"this rice cripy square could be weirding me out! (I'll tell you for sure when i finish the rest of it tomorrow.)" i totally see the reasoning. i mean what if it ISN'T the rice crispie square weirding you out? then you will have wasted half a rice crispy square! unthinkable! better to eat it all and deal with the bad trip.

from the twisted mind of Martha Stewart's daughter comes this variation on rice crispie squares. i carry this recipe around with me for when i have the courage to buy three bags of mini-marshmallows and three boxes of sugar laden cereal without collapsing from the guilt of it all:

confetti squares (makes nine. 9? sweet god, they want to KILL me.)

9 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
12 cups (2 and 1/2 bags) mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Crispies
6 cups Cap'n Crunch
6 cups Froot Loops
(oh! the humanity!)
one can of Pam cooking spray style stuff

spray a 9-by-9-by-2 inch backing pan with spray, set aside, melt butter in a large pot over medium heat, add salt and marshmallows, stir until melted with a wooden spoon. remove from heat, add cereals, stir until combined.

coat hands with spray, transfer mixture into the pan. the mixture won't fit, so you will have to press it into the pan. it won't go. yes it will. no it won't . not unless you are a gorilla, physics just won't allow 18 cups of cereal into a 9 by 9 by 2 inch pan! yes it will. i assure you, Martha Stewart's daughter is a willowy little thing, if SHE can press it in there, assuredly a veteran of the armed services can force the cereal into the pan? nope. oh wait, there it went. it just takes a lot of pushing.

let this cool for 30 minutes. cut into 3 by 3 inch bars. all you get is NINE? these things better be as good as gold...

Well, whomever of us decides to make these first shall have to inform the other if it is worth our time.

BTW, those mint brownies were quite good. I did a little boo boo and did not cook the espresso first, but rather put it directly in (it was grinded really really small) boy was I hyper.

Thanks for the recipe.

I hope you are well

oh! i totally forgot! how long until someone can come over? or you go over? just to talk? how about, only after that person has found the courage to tell you something very important that might hurt your feelings, (not out of spite, but,) because they care enough about you to do the right thing and not care if thier friendship is lost because of it? that's a true friend, and those are the only people you should trust in that kind of circumstance.

Very good idea.

What if nothing has come up though?

I mean, very rarely does anyone say anything of that respect to me - not because they don't feel comfortable, but rather there isn't anything I have done that bothers them or maybe I just don't know anyone well enough?

Is there a way to test or bring something like that up? LOL

I hope you are well

is there a way to test this? yes, wear something too small and ask if you look fat.

seriously, if you have no friends that have breached the whole "maybe i shouldn't tell you this, but i think you are making a mistake," then you either (as you say) haven't screwed up enough (and you should work on that, perfection is a really annoying trait in a friend.) or you don't have any friends that are close enough to talk to in this way at this time. don't feel bad about this, these type of friends are rare.

right now, i have lots of friends, but only one other than my wife that i would impose upon in this way, and that's jason low_key and we've been friends for many years.

however, i seem to be someone that people look at and say "i need to tell this guy my sins." once a fellow i had only just met, decided to confide in me, and relate the personal details of his (quite complex) love trysts and triangles. literally i met him, he asked me for a ride to a fast food joint, and he spilled his guts while we ate tacos in a parking lot. i felt quite uncomfortable giving advice to this man, but i did my best (try to retain your long distance relationship, and resist all these girls that are throwing themselves at you. nothing worth having comes without sacrifice.-- he ignored my suggestions (yes jason, if you are reading this, it was Lope.))

if i were you, i'd go with the whole IM thing, IM is fantastic, one can talk without the personal angle, and if someone is on IM at three in the am, then they want to talk, so you aren't imposing. (however, i'm sure that this all came about because of your hyper state at three am, and i don't think anyone was on IM that night, am i right?)

Absolutley correct about the no one being up at 3am. Also, the specific person I was kinda referring to currently has no computer - or at least internet - access. Makes things kinda difficult (boo for computerless beings) LOL.

As for the clothing, good idea, only that means purchasing something that is too small. See here's the other thing. I do not get offended. Majority of my friends know this too and therefore - I think - feel more comfortable telling me things in a shorter period of time knowing me than they probably would normally.

Also, it's usually the opposite for this example ~ my friends want me to wear more form-fitting clothes, LOL. Also, in that sense, I like being competent and secure, I guess sometimes too much. I think the last time I asked how I looked was over a year and a half ago ~ unless it was for an audition. Eek.

As for perfection - I am far from it and always making mistakes, also always trying to learn from my friends. I am more a "what would you do in this situation" asking many hypothetical questions or opinions rather than "this is my problem".

I actually have the same thing you do, people tend to come to me and tell me more than I ever needed to know. I'm glad though, because that means people believe I'm trustworthy.

On the other hand, I have trouble telling others my problems because I know that I used to complain way way too much and then I would get stuck in that frame of mind. It's something I need to learn, that it's ok to express my concerns sometimes.

I have babbled quite a bit.

I hope you are well

Thank you again

I'm afraid that late night visitors, be they callers on the phone or my doorstep, tend to be seeking things other than solace and companionship. It is a question I could ponder, but I lack the authority to truly respond.

I feel comfortable asking anyone that. Now feeling comfortable actually doing that, or them feeling comfortable with me doing it is a completely different question.

So I take it the suggestion is to just ask them?


I hope you are well
