Fet Life

seems to be the place to be these days.

I sorta feel like the girl on the outside LOL, the one people forgot to invite to the party (deliberately).

Which is silly as I joined originally, loved the place for about two weeks, then went into a frenzy at some of the riduculous carryings on that occurred as the membership exploded ....

And left as I tend to get caught up in arguments, get all mixed up and angry at things which then carries over into real life and gets D. pissed at me because I get all all hot and bothered.... so I quit.

So should I join or tehnically, rejoin? I keep getting snippits of stuff from blogs I follow and god, although FAR from a party girl, hate not knowing what is going on...especially as everyone I go people are talking about it.

Does that make me shallow (YES)...

sighs.

Yes, I know the feeling, so I joined, but never left like you did. I just found four or five discussion groups that were interesting subjects and have them email ne when something new is posted. Then I go and see if I even like the questions, have my say if I do, and then return to the fringes.

The crux of it is your ability to remain on the fringe and not get dragged into the fray. It was pretty cool when it first started and then suffered the influx of the masses - Never underestsimate the stupdity of people in large groups.

It does seem to be calming down a bit, but I am sure it is subject to the typical sine wave.

Come back, I will be your friend, you can write on my wall and we can have esoteric conversations out on the fringes.

grins...I very well think I might .. and screw it if they think I'm a snot - truly, there were some completely challenged people that wanted to argue regardless of whether they actually had anything on which to base their opinions!

We all can be snots from time to time, you say that like it's a bad thing?

Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something.

See ya there

Yes. What he said.

I try really really hard these days to just click out of conversations that trip my trigger, instead of thinking that I MUST say what I think!! OMGZ! -- until I realized that people think what they think. The end. :-)

Lord knows I'm as opinionated and mouthy as they come, but I *think* I'm learning to opinionate (is that a word? If not, I'm making it one) more for myself than thinking that anyone really cares what I have to say. Ego maybe? *shrug*

I've cut my group following down to just 3, of which only 1 is semi-controversial. I don't even stray into the other groups or threads. I don't have time, not if I'm going to live as the slave I claim to be. Once I removed my personal feelings from it all, Fetlife can be a fun place to visit. So that's where I try to keep it - fun and a short visit.

I hope to see you there. :-)

hmmm. remain on the fringe ... stay out of the fray... keep my opinions to myself ... ALL excellent advice! and VERY questionable whether I can follow it LOL - this hair is natural you know!! And D. got fed up with my drama queen fits and Irish temper displays LOL

I'm musing on it though ... shove your butt over, morningstar, I brought us some punch - maybe we can scope out the crowd and see who we can rip to pieces ... snickers.

If you two get yourselves in trouble you can run over and hide behind me.

selkie said...

Thanks David!!

But I feel it only right to warn You - it is not IF we get ourselves in trouble, but WHEN we get ourselves in trouble ....LOL

Well, on a positive note, life is SELDOM boring around me LOL
