Note to self #298:

Stop saying "Jesus Christ" as an exclamation. Not only is it blasphemous according to my beliefs, but Kelsey's saying it and getting in trouble.

Really, I am ashamed of myself. Man. I'd rather her say "damn" or "shit" or "hell" than that.

Of course, I would never say JC's name if I didn't have to drive.

On the OTHER side of that coin, who the hell is her bus driver?! I mean, what if we were Jewish?! Hm. I don't know whether I'm angry with the bus driver, myself, both of us, or just one.

Still...I've had to write an "I hate you" letter to the bus driver once already. I don't want to have to do it again because she's ignorant.

Curious to know more on that sometime if you don't mind. I wish people would stop saying it that way, as if everything is His fault!

If I understand this right, K is parroting her bus driver?

Next time I hear it at work I'm gonna ask the person not to because it offends me. I don't care if it is a customer, coworker, or manager.

Good luck with that letter!

^ ... or is K getting it from you?

Still, even when driving isn't a reason to say it.

Just my 2 drachmas....

Again, I have no problem saying it; I consider it partnering with Him, or rather, begging/screaming for His help.

But if closed-minded idiots like her bus driver are gonna act like that, I'll stop for that reason. I would never intentionally be blasphemous, and God knows <---there are worse things we could all do. Like judge.

Sorry, but yes, when driving that's EXACTLY when I need to say it.

My journal. My drachmas count.

Maybe it's not because it's His fault; maybe we're trying to "partner" with him when we're frustrated.

Nah, not going to talk about it any more than I have. No big deal.

And you have to remember the most important thing: Judge not.

It's not judging. Just wondering why people do it.

Still gonna ask others *not* to around me.

That probably won't work. You'll probably have to leave yourself. People won't stop doing what /they/ feel is okay just because of /your/ beliefs. I wish they would (that would mean I'd drive on the roads alone, while everyone ELSE waited on me!); but that's life. There's no law or anything else to protect you from that.

I told you why I do it. Perhaps others do, as well. You'll never know. That's the bottom line. That's why the bible is soooooo clear about judging. And thank God for that.

Hi
I noticed we used to work at the same place (Vulcan) but I doubt it was the same time. When were you there?

Re: Hi
Hmmmm...where did you notice that? I don't think I've put "Vulcan" in here anywhere.

Who are you? Then I'll answer your question ;-)

Re: Hi
I was exec. editor for three of their national publications (EC&EN, FAN & MAN). Before I left, I trained Lee Hurley to take my place.

Sound familiar?

Re: Hi
And now I know who you are ;-) Which is a good thing -- because I was about to point and call you a stalker :>

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
