I know 17 of the 38 people on my friends list in real life.
I've known 1 person for 24 years, 3 I've known more than 10 years, and 4 for 8 years.
I'll likely meet 6 others on my friends list in real life within the next year.
I've friended people who are ideologically/politically/demographically different than myself because I enjoy their unique perspectives.
I've friended people I think are far more intelligent than me because I enjoy learning from them.
I've pissed people off on my friends list by being banal & by use of my unique idioms.
I do not celebrate diversity by virtue of simply being different, but I do appreciate diverse people who bring creativity & intellect to the table.
I am extremely long suffering and never hold a grudge.
However, I deplore rudeness.

Went shopping for the score to Pan's Labyrinth but couldn't find it anywhere.

The comic book store called me to pick up my last five issues of BSG. I haven't read them yet.

Stopped by a demographically challenged liquor store on a whim and spoke to the proprietor. Asked if he had any single malt scotch. His eyes lit up and he took me into the back, behind a roped off area, and showed me his stock. Every single bottle of scotch I'd ever heard of was there, and quite a few I hadn't. The prices were unbelievably low. He suggested to me a 12-year bottle of Glenlivet as my daily drink ($29.99) and a 16-year old bottle of Lagavulin for the low, low price of $79.99. I saw a bottle of Oban, which had been suggested to me by a friend, and a bottle of Isle of Jura, which was suggested to me by lehah (Thanks!) I chose the latter as it was surprisingly only $24.49. My wife was disappointed I didn't by a more expensive bottle (which surprised me!)

I slept 10-hours last night.

photogoot is due back in town tomorrow.

I wish you all a fantastic evening and a great week next week.

Let me know what you think of the Isle Of Jura.

(That is a phenominal price for the bottle!)

Absolutely - I love trying new things!

However, I deplore rudeness.

I agree completely. Except on the (very) rare occasion, rudeness is completely unnecessary and it very much lowers my opinion of the person in question. I'm jokingly rude to my friends (and vice versa), but I'm always scrupulously polite to anyone I don't have a good relationship with or don't like. I used to be a rude bitch a long time ago, back when I hadn't figured out that being like that didn't automatically make me super-cool, but those days are long behind me.

Also, I don't think you're banal (or maybe I just don't notice it because I'm equally banal, hehe).

So ... what prompted the first section of your post about the rudeness? I would like to subscribe to this gossip because I am a nosy wench. :)

One of your posts, actually; got me thinking about my FL and who's who and how they got there and why. No one's been rude to me lately - but I do bounce back and forth between 'These people are offended way too easily,' and 'Am I really that inconsiderate?'

As with everything in life, I'm sure the answer lies somewhere in-between, but sometimes I think I'm the only one who sees that.

Who do you think you'll meet this year? For some reason, I get this forboding feeling like we'll never meet. :(

Don't worry, you are the last on the list to meet. You had your chance two years ago and you blew it.

Clearly, you've never seen Hannibal.

Nobody's made the usual fava beans-and-Chianti jokes in response to this yet? I'm disappointed.
