My reasons for a new thread.
There are many days when I feel unhappy, gripy, and generally icky. I don't feel like hearing and seeing the happy part of people's lives- just the mood I am in at the moment for whatever reason. It isn't a "side" to be on but just a place to go and not be sappy.
For me, the Random ThoughtsKaffee khlakdifaliea(can't spell that one) thread was a place to go and find stupid facts to waste my time with. It is a great place to go and gripe to friends and a place to talk back and forth. I love that people are in wondeful moods and having a great time but my meds just ain't working that well right now and it was a tad bit annoying that people were so happy all of the time. Good for you but I found myself not wanting to go back and read or I would scan it so quickly that it would take three minutes to "read" 20 pages. It just wasn't what I wanted to hear/read.
I'm not trying to pick on anyone but to give an alternative to the extreme gladness that is found over there. I will still post but this is a place to post more like what the original Random Thoughts thread was. Just plain talking about general things.... with a tad bit of orneriness thrown in. A great place for sarcasm and good natured fun....yes- the dark/evil side can have good natured fun.
Just another alternative.
